  1. What is hair transplant?

Its a surgical treatment that involves removing hair from a part of the body that is resistant to balding and transplanting it to a spot that is in need of hair due to accident, surgery, balding etc.

The latest hair transplant technique is not the same as a skin graft, where swatches of skin are removed hair and all.

Only certain types of hair follicles are removed and transplanted helping to match your natural hair perfectly.

  1. How much does it cost?

Cost is one of the most asked hair transplant FAQ.

The cost for a hair transplant is formidable, we’re talking thousands of rupees no matter what.

Whether you got a little hairline recession or you got some serious baldness showing.

Most clinics charge patients a cost per graft, which when multiplied by the number of grafts required gives you the cost you will have to incur (standard taxes apply, of course).

Cost can also vary based on your total requirement of number of grafts.

Many surgeons offer discounts on cost per graft as the number of grafts required increase.

These may not be applicable for the lengthier mega and giga sessions though.

Those sessions are very demanding of patient, surgeon and staff.

Mega & Giga sessions are offered mainly as a convenience factor for patients with extreme baldness not wanting multiple sessions.

  1. Can women undergo hair transplant?

It is almost surprising how many women undergo this surgery.

I say “almost” because it is not shocking that women feel more pressurised to maintain a proper hairline compared to men

For men, a bald pate is stigma only to those who feel inadequate without their hair.

And there are plenty for whom dropping that kind of money on hair is simply not going to happen.

  1. How to find a good surgeon?

Like with most things these days, your research for the right hair transplant surgeon should start online.

It’s a smart choice to start by checking the reviews of whomever you are interested in to do the transplant.

Don’t just look at one website, try and read different reviews across different websites for the same surgeon or hospital.

You could also read patient testimonials about procedures other than hair transplant.

Check to see if the surgeon is board certified – this is the most important step.

Visit their website and try to verify their qualification, certifications etc.

Next, find out ho many years of experience he or she has.

Keep in mind that surgeons with greater experience tend to generally charge a higher fee.

But that isn’t a bad thing, because the odds of great results are often higher with well experienced surgeons.

  1. Are hair transplants only for the head?

Not at all.

There are of course other reasons than balding for getting a transplant.

Such as the restoration of eyebrows, chest hair, pubic hair, facial hair like beard, moustache, side burns or goatee or to fill in scars left by accidents or surgery.

  1. What is Strip Harvesting?

Strip Harvesting is a technique where a strip of scalp with hair is removed and cut into small pieces called grafts.

These grafts are then sutured to the balding area, leaving scars that will show unless the hair is long.

Recovery time is less than a month.  There will be pain, and stitches to remove.

  1. What is FUE?

Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE is harvesting of individual hair follicles.

These follicles are then reinserted in the bald or balding area. Micro punches are utilised for the extraction and micro blade for the insertion.

In some cases, the survival rate of the follicles is lower without the piece of scalp (as in strip harvesting) and multiple treatments may be likely.

FUE is relatively less painful and has a shorter recovery period,

Plus there and no stitches to remove, like in strip harvesting.

Sometimes, following an FUE procedure, there may not be a suitable strip of scalp left for a graph if the transplant is not satisfactory.

  1. How long does the hair growth take?

In the days that follow your surgery, all of that newly transplanted hair are meant to fall out.

Don’t worry, it’s only so that newly grown follicles can replace the fallen hair.

For some patients, you may have to repeat this surgery if your “regular” hair continues to thin while your transplanted hair stays new.

  1. Any other precautions?

Like any surgery, anaesthetic will be involved along with a cleansing of the area (shampoo), and antibiotics.

No smoking or drinking before the procedure or your results may not be satisfactory.

Hair transplantation is the most natural and permanent way for making people, who suffer from hair loss, have new hair. In hair transplantation, the healthy hair of the patient himself/herself is implanted to the areas of hair loss.

Hair transplantation was first performed in Japan in the 1930s and it first appeared in the Western World in the 1950s. Hair transplantation techniques have been perfected by the modern techniques and the better understanding of hair and scalp structure.

Who can undergo hair transplantation?

In our day, almost fifty percent of men over the age of 50 face the hair loss problem. Thus, hair transplantation is the most frequent cosmetic surgery for men. Hair loss is not a condition specific to men. Many women also experience hair loss or thinning problems. Genetic features are one of the most important causes of hair loss, but it may also occur as a result of aging, traumatic injuries or various medical disorders. Hair transplantation can be successfully performed for all people with a sufficient amount of hair follicles regardless of the cause of hair loss. The transplantation method can successfully be performed not only on the scalp, but also for the losses in the other hairy body parts such as the eyebrows, moustache and beard.

Which methods are used for hair transplantation?

In the hair transplantation procedures; FUE method that does not leave any scar or FUT method that may leave a slight scar in the back part of the head are performed with success. Whereas the hair follicles are taken one by one and implanted to the deficient areas in the FUE method, a skin band containing hair is taken from the nuchal area in the FUT method. The patient who will undergo hair transplantation should have healthy hair at the back part of the head and on the sides to be used as donor areas. Other factors such as the colour and thickness of the hair, its properties such as strength and waviness are influential in the result of the procedure. The method to be preferred should be decided after hair and scalp analysis by taking also the priorities of the patient into consideration. Although FUE method that does not leave a scar is mostly preferred, it may be necessary to use the FUT method in some cases. Hair transplantation may be performed not only for balding but to increase the hair density in the thinned areas.

How long does a hair transplant procedure take?

The procedure is completed within a few hours depending on the amount of the hair loss. If the hairless area is too large, several sessions may be needed to complete the treatment. In general, the intervention is carried out with sedation under local anaesthesia.

What is the recovery/healing time after the treatment?

A special bandage is applied to the head section of the patient after the procedure and the patient is discharged a few hours later. Although pain is rare, pain control is provided with pain relievers. The patient can generally go back to work by keeping the head covered after a 3-days home rest. The first medical wound dressing is done on the 5th day.

From which area are hair taken for the hair transplantation?

In the procedure, the hair follicles taken generally from the nuchal area are transplanted to the targeted hairless area. These hair follicles taken are called grafts. In rare cases, there is not a sufficient amount of healthy hair in the nuchal area or in the temporal region of the patient. In such cases, hair follicles may be taken from other body parts with hair, such as the arms or the chest wall of the patient.

Does the transplanted hair fall out?

The hair that has been transplanted is shed within a few weeks following the transplantation procedure but this is normal situation because the lost hair will grow again 3-4 months later. After this temporary shedding has recovered, the transplanted hair follicles preserve their characteristics and they are not shed. However, the original hair in the same area may continue to be lost and a new hair transplantation may be planned depending on the decrease in the hair density. Hair loss may persist progressively after the surgical procedure. If an unnatural look appears especially in the new hair line region, an additional surgical intervention may again be needed later.

What are the important factors for hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation presents some risks when it is not carried out under suitable conditions just as it is the case with all medical interventions. However, when the hair transplantation procedure is carried out by an experienced plastic surgeon in a hospital setting, the complications are very rarely seen. In addition to this, when the hair transplantation process performed by an experienced team of plastic surgeons, the success of the treatment are increased.

What is the success of hair transplantation?

For the hair transplantation to be successful, the hair follicles should be vascularized rapidly, that is they should “adhere” in the area where the follicles are placed. If done by a correct method, the success rate of hair transplantation is quiet high. For a natural look, the hair should be transplanted to the hair loss areas with a correct distance, correct angle and correct density.

What are the risks in hair transplantation?

Like every medical procedure, hair transplantation carries various risks. Hair transplantation is a long procedure and several transplants may be needed within 1-2 years depending on the degree of the hair loss. Complications such as infection and significant scars may be seen although these are very rare. After the operation, pain that can be controlled by pain relievers, sensation of disturbance, some amount of bruising and swelling may be observed. Numbness may occur in the areas where the hair is taken or where the hair is transplanted and this recovers spontaneously within 2-3 months.
