Hair transplantation is performed as a day care surgery under local anesthesia. You will be discharged on the same day after the procedure is completed. The procedure is completed in around last 6-10 hours depend on the amount of grafts being transplanted. Modern techniques of surgical hair transplantation can restore permanently the lost hair and replace or re-shape your hairline with your own natural, growing hair, which need no more care than the ordinary washing, styling, and trimming you have always done. Transplantation can be done today so well that often a barber or stylist cannot even tell that grafts have been placed. Hair transplantation involves random extraction of permanent follicular unit grafts form the back and/or sides of the scalp (donor area). These small grafts are then meticulously planted into the bald or thinning area of the scalp (recipient area) so as not to injure any follicles already existing in the area and at the same exact angle and direction as the other existing hairs present. The creation of very small follicular unit grafts has enabled the hair surgeon to create very natural, feathered hairlines, which do not have the abrupt, pluggy look that was commonly seen in hair transplants of years past. We are currently doing hair transplant exclusively with follicular unit grafts by latest FUE technique, Depending on the degree of baldness in the frontal, temporal, mid-scalp, and vertex (crown) areas, the number of grafts required by a person varies tremendously, based on the area of potential baldness, the patients safe donor supply, the textural characteristics of the patients hair and the specific goals of the patient. Hair transplant surgery today is remarkably well tolerated. Within 24 hours small crusts will form on each graft that are then shed in approximately 10-14 days. The grafted hairs will start to grow naturally by 10-16 weeks after the procedure and will continue to grow for most, of ones life.
Hair transplant is used in the following techniques:
