A hair transplant is suitable for people with permanent baldness, but a hair transplant may not be suitable for everyone and depends on factors such as donor area health, hair and hair loss type, and the cause of hair loss. If you want to restore natural hair growth, you can choose between FUT and FUE hair transplant techniques. Slight hair enhancement is also possible through the Scalp Micropigmentation technique. In short, a hair transplant is a very effective hair loss solution.
What is Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which hair follicles are extracted from one part of the head, known as the “donor site” and implanted into the balding area of the head, known as the “recipient site.” It is considered an effective technique to treat male pattern baldness. The donor site is mainly the area that is resistant to baldness and has a significant amount of donor hair e.g. back or sides of the head.
Hair Transplant Before & After
The results of hair transplants are considered permanent. You not only get natural-looking hair back, but you also live without the fear of losing it in the future. While donor grafts are more resistant to DHT(Dihydrotestosterone), there is still a possibility of future hair loss in the transplanted area due to factors such as aging and genetic predisposition. It normally takes about 3 to 4 months for the transplanted hair to start growing and about 8 months to a year to reach full length. You can trim, cut, and style transplanted hair according to your own choice.
Are you a candidate?
A hair transplant is not for everybody. You are an ideal candidate for a hair transplant if you;
- Have a healthy donor area with an adequate hair supply for transplantation.
- Suffer from pattern baldness or hair thinning.
- Lost hair due to any incident like burn or injury.
- Do not have any serious diseases like hemophilia, hepatitis C or HIV.
- Are not allergic to anesthesia.
- Are diabetic; diabetic patients are not automatically disqualified from undergoing a hair transplant. However, uncontrolled diabetes can lead to complications during and after the surgery, so it is important to manage diabetes effectively before considering a hair transplant.
In addition to this, if the skin on your scalp is lax, you should not undergo a hair transplant because lax scalp skin is not suitable for the procedure.

FUT Hair Transplant:
Follicular Unit Transplant, commonly known as FUT, is a hair transplant type in which a strip of skin is taken out from the donor area; the size of the strip depends upon the number of grafts needed. The strip is dissected into individual follicular units, which are then implanted into the recipient areas.
FUT requires more care and recovery time than FUE. Similarly, the technique is more invasive than FUE.
FUE Hair Transplant
In FUE, the grafts are extracted as individual follicular units by using micro punches of about 0.6 to 0.8 mm in size. The advantages of FUE include patients experiencing minimal pain after the process.
In FUE, if the patient has a poor donor area, the doctor can take hair from the beard and implant it in the bald region.
