Methods of surgical Hair Transplantation have evolved from the older and tender methods akin to flap transfer, scalp reduction to today’s less painful methods including follicular hair transplants. Medical fraternity considers Hair Transplant as one of the significant accomplishments in the course of medical science’s history. Although every endeavour made in the process of hair transplantation is aimed at bringing natural appeal to hair, only few of them achieved the target and the present day state-of-the-art methods are yielding results.
Process of Hair Transplantation involves a modestly invasive surgical course of action, which shifts grafts containing follicles that are hereditarily impervious to balding from a part of the body called the ‘donor location or site’ (for instance, back of the head), to a receding or hairless area of the body known as the ‘recipient location or site’ (for instance scalp). Except in those victims who are suffering from disperse hair loss, hair transplantation works in majority of cases as hair is genetically structured to breed even in severe cases. Nevertheless, this method may not be apt for female pattern baldness, which includes loss of hair across the entire scalp region. The victim would be left out with scrubby hair in the back region. Hence it is not advisable to women to go for hair transplantation.
This procedure works pretty well not only with the hair on the scalp region, but also with beard hair, hair on chest, and hair in pubic area. On top, hair transplantation is a preferred method to stuff scar region with hair caused by either accidents or surgeries. Unlike in organ transplant, the client himself would be the donor and recipient. Transplanting follicles collected from other person is possible but it comes with a risk of the recipient’s body rejecting the foreign hair unless it is supported by immune suppressants. Many confuse between hair transplantation and skin grafting and assume both are akin, but skin grafting involves a sole strip of skin, where as in hair transplantation the graft comprises the epidermis and dermis adjoining the hair follicle, and several such miniscule grafts are relocated.
Process of Transplantation at Follicles commences with your head being thoroughly examined with an instrument called Hair Densitometer and preparation of detail medical file. Densitometer gauges and quantifies your hair mass, enabling the expert to understand the health of the hair, number of hairs emerging out of each follicular unit, as well the hair loss pattern that may occur. On top, the equipment differentiates the thick hair from the fine strands, gauging the degree of tininess of such pieces of hair caused by retreating of hair follicles and reduction in every hair’s span, width, and, thickness. Once the file is prepared, our experts would advise you on fitting hair transplant outline and approximate schedules.
The requirement of the recipient and the mass of hair available in donor site are two factors that determine the fitting method of extraction. Upholding the balance between present purposes and future requirements is pretty crucial. Thus utmost importance should be given to crucial aesthetic areas that affect the cosmetic appearance.
Pertinent to the receipt of hair, front and top parts of the head receive first the hair as they transform the appearance of the recipient followed by crown if all the parts are affected. Process of Hair Transplantation is conducted in simple and painless line of approach by utilizing local anaesthetics with a prime objective to collect vibrant and workable graft units that can be precisely implanted straight into the recipient site. The transplanted hair would maintain growing for the rest of the life.
The techniques and proficiency pertinent to hair transplantation methods vary from surgeon to surgeon, as well the results. Hence deciding upon the right expert is crucial.

Eminent as FUE harvesting, this process is conducted under local anaesthesia, and encompasses extracting those follicular units consisting of 1-4 hairs by deploying a surgical punch-tool, which would be placed on top of the hair where it actually comes out from the scalp region. Pursuant to this it would be brought in line with the direction of hair growth and put in making micro punches of anywhere between 0.6mm and 1.0mm. The tool’s role ends with incision and extraction happens physically by hand. The extracted hair strands are then placed in a programmed outline and in planned density by expert technicians and the incisions would be addressed accordingly so that hair pattern looks real.
FUE can either be completed in one lengthy sitting or manifold small sittings. Though the process is time taking, the quantum of time also depends on factors as such experience of experts, attributes of patients, harvesting speed et al. FUE is not offered every client as there are certain strict conditions to be met and in order to ascertain each client will have to undergo Fox test. Also the method is to some extent complex in terms of accessing the graft through the scalp, making the process difficult to line up and place the instrument to gauge the deepness necessary to cut out the graft. However, to overcome this FUE is endowed with more advanced equipment, a robotic tool that uses infra-red light to outline the most apt grafts and places the punch in exact position.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), also referred as Strip Extraction, hair is used by cutting a strip of the scalp from the donor area. The strip’s parameters like size or shape are planned and decided by the surgeons. Those parameters exclusively depend on the quantum of grafts needed, as well the possibility of avoiding a scratch mark or making it barely visible. The excised strip used for a meticulous examination under an advanced microscope helps the experts to identify where hair is emerging under the skin. This awareness enables the experts to position the stiletto at the point where the graft is existing. FUT, when advised, many clients would turn hesitant as the removal of strip would result in slim blemish. But such scar would be outgrown by the hair.
