Hair transplant

What is hair transplant surgery?

Hair transplant surgery is a restorative procedure which involves removal of hair from your hair-bearing area and applying them as grafts to a bald area of the scalp.

Who should get hair transplant surgery?

Hair transplant is recommended by a hair transplant surgeon after properly assessing the people who have hair loss which is stable for more than 3 years.

Some of the indications for the hair transplant procedure include; Individuals who have permanent baldness, but systemically healthy, androgenic alopecia (Pattern baldness) - People who have good hair density at the donor area, individuals with receding hairline and people who have lost hair due to trauma or scarring.

How is the procedure done?

It is an outpatient surgical procedure which is basically performed by two methods:

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) or Strip technique: This procedure is indicated when there is a considerable amount of baldness which requires a high number of hair grafts. A thin strip of hair is taken from the back or sides of the scalp and is dissected to produce individual hair grafts in the graft separation room. After creating the hairline design these individual hair grafts are transplanted in the recipient site. The donor site is then sutured by using a specialized technique called trichophytic closure which allows healing without scarring. 

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction): This technique is considered in initial bald cases who require less number of hair grafts. The procedure involves the extraction of hair grafts from a donor site using a punch surgical device and placing it directly at the recipient site. Other few recent techniques include; the combination of FUT and FUE, BHT (Body Hair Transplant), Rapid harvest and early implantation, and no root touch techniques. 

How much does the procedure cost?

The cost of the procedure will range from INR 60,000 to INR 400,000 depending on the extent of baldness and the technique used.
