What is Hair Transplant

Hair transplant is the new trend for those who have lost their hair to untimely hair fall, also for the people who want to alter their hairlines or acquire a more attractive hairstyle. But hair transplant is meant for those who have thick or dense hair on their body because in this procedure your hair from other body parts is transplanted into your scalp, which is the recipient area. The question arises, are hair transplants really safe? and successful? or are there long-lasting procedures? People worry if the procedure would bring some unwanted tissue to change their bodies. Many people also ask what is a hair transplant.

Basically a hair transplant is a surgical process that involves removal of hair fall from any site in the body like face, legs or any area where the hairs are thicker and denser to the area where you are losing your hair like your scalp. This process is also used for transplanting hair in lashes and eyebrows and even in mustache and beard. The latest techniques that give permanent results are follicular hair transplant that can be done in two ways one is strip harvesting and other is follicular unit extraction. In both the process, they pick up follicular clusters of hair. In the strip harvesting, skin strips with good hair growth are implanted into the balding area and in follicular unit extraction, the hair clusters with their roots are manually removed and then planted into the hairless site. 

Steps for hair transplant :


The initial step for hair transplant surgery is preparing hair follicles from the back of your head which are removed and then relocated to the hair thinning for the balding area.


The donor area is trimmed before the surgery as it becomes easy for surgeons to perform.

Once your hair is trimmed doctors give you local anesthesia in your donor area.

Removal of tissue from the Donor area

The tissue from your Donor area that contains the balding resistant hair follicles are removed surgically and then the donor area is sutured.
