Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation is a surgical hair replacement procedure that permanently restores hair by transplanting new follicles into balding or thinning areas. It is a technique that moves hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' to a balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site. Hair transplants correct male-pattern baldness and other forms of hair loss. This is a minimal invasive procedure, in which the grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding are transplanted to the bald scalp. It is also used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, chest hair, beard hair, pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. It is very different from skin grafting in that grafts have almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.



Since hair naturally grows in groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, current techniques harvest and transplant hair "follicular units" in their natural groupings. Thus modern hair transplantation can achieve a natural appearance by mimicking original hair orientation. This hair transplant procedure is called follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Donor hair can be harvested in two different ways: strip harvesting, and follicular unit extraction



Hair transplant (or hair restoration, hair implants) is a hair replacement treatment for men and women. The Hair transplant (or hair restoration, hair implants) is a hair replacement treatment for men and women. The Hair restoration surgery usually takes a full day and is performed under local anesthesia and sedation, although some cases may require general anesthesia. In this surgery, healthy hair follicles are removed from the back and/or sides of the head, and transplanted to areas where hair loss is occurring. 



Surgery usually involves transplanting follicular units (the natural bundling of hairs as they grow in the scalp), with each unit containing one to four hairs. The most common technique is "strip harvesting" (sometimes referred to as follicular unit transfer, or FUT), which involves removing a single strip of the scalp where follicles are plentiful (the "donor site") and then cutting out the follicular units to create grafts for transplanting. 



The average number of individual grafts needed depends on the patient; anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000 grafts is possible in an average day of surgery.



Your recovery time will depend on the extent of the surgery. Most patients report mild pain, numbness and soreness; this can be controlled with pain medication prescribed by your surgeon. It is common for hairs from the transplanted follicles to fall out in the first month and then regrow. Within 4 to 5 months, they should be growing normally in their new location.



Complications with hair transplant surgery are relatively uncommon. Potential hair restoration side effects may include scarring or uneven hair growth. If the results of the surgery are patchy or if the follicle grafts don't establish well at the new site, your surgeon may wish to perform a follow-up surgery to correct scarring or to transplant more follicles to fill in thinner areas.

 Another increasingly common technique is follicular unit extraction (FUE), in which each follicular unit is removed one at a time--a more time consuming process, but one that avoids the linear scar from the donor site. It can result in tiny dots on the back of the head that can sometimes be visible if the head is shaved. FUE is usually chosen by men, particularly those under 30 who may wish to shave their head, and by African Americans.
