What is a hair transplant?

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure that involves the redistribution of hair follicles from a donor area (usually the back or sides of the scalp) to areas of the scalp with thinning or no hair. It is primarily used to treat hair loss, particularly male and female pattern baldness. The transplanted hair follicles continue to grow naturally in their new location, providing a more full and natural appearance.

What are the different hair transplant techniques?

There are two main hair transplant techniques: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). In the FUE method, individual hair follicles are extracted directly from the donor area using a micro-punch tool. In FUT, a strip of scalp containing hair follicles is removed from the donor area, and the follicular units are then dissected and transplanted into the recipient area. Both techniques aim to achieve natural-looking hair growth.

How long does the recovery take?

The recovery period after a hair transplant can vary from person to person. After the procedure, patients might experience redness, swelling, and scabbing in the recipient area. These side effects are typically temporary and subside within a week or two. Transplanted hairs often go through a shedding phase initially, but new growth usually begins within a few months. Over the following months, the transplanted hairs will gradually grow, thicken, and mature, leading to more noticeable results.
