What is Hair Transplantation or Hair Restoration?

The very first question that can bother any hair transplant aspirant is the procedure of hair restoration. In this procedure, hair is extracted from other sites such as the back of the scalp, beard, and chest, the donor area and implanted in the bald area or the recipient area. It is done in such a manner that the aesthetics of the donor area remains unchanged.

The best technique currently is the Direct Hair Transplant (DHT), which is an advanced form of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) that ensures maximum graft survivability​​.

Evidently the technique that gives the best result with minimum complications and scar should be the best. In past, FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) was the predominant one.

But, the downtime in this was more and resulted in a long linear scar at the back of the head. Consequently, the recovery process was long. Also, it was painful.

But, with the advent of advanced instruments, surgeons now perform FUE (Follicular unit extraction) with great accuracy. In this, downtime is less, it is less painful and leaves almost no scar. Clearly, it is accepted more now both by doctors and patients.

Recovery time in the latest Direct Hair Transplant technique is one week.

A hair transplant aspirant must be very patient. Do not expect instant results, you are not implanting hair fibres.

Initial results can be expected in 3-4 months and full results can be seen in 10-12 months.
