Hair transplant is a surgical procedure to treat hair loss and baldness. It involves the removal of hair follicles from a donor site, usually the back or sides of the scalp, and their transplantation into balding or thinning areas of the scalp, called the recipient site.
The two primary techniques for hair transplant are Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). In FUT, a strip of hair-bearing skin is removed from the donor area and the hair follicles are dissected under a microscope. In FUE, individual hair follicles are extracted one by one from the donor area using a small punch tool.
Once the hair follicles are extracted, they are implanted into the recipient area using tiny incisions. The transplanted hair follicles will then start to grow new hairs over the next several months.
Hair transplant is generally considered a safe and effective treatment for hair loss, but it does have some potential risks and side effects, such as bleeding, infection, scarring, and uneven hair growth. There is a maximum number of grafts that can be safely transplanted at each session, so depending on your pattern of hair loss you may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results.
