Hair Transplant

What is Hair Transplant ?

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves individual hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' to bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'. Hair Transplantation is used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and hair transplants.

There are two technique used for hair transplant:
1. FUE.
2. FUT.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

FUE harvesting, individual follicular units are extracted directly from the hair restoration patient's donor area, ideally one at a time. This differs from strip-harvesting because in strip harvesting, a strip of skin is removed from the patient and then dissected into many individual follicular units.

The FUE hair transplant technique is used by means of a 3-step procedure and utilizes a number of designs of instruments that is applied of all manual, automated, and motorised, even robotized mediums. However, the choice of instrumentation is subjected to the surgeon’s credibility.

An FUE surgery usually takes place in morning shift. And patients are encouraged to bring their own choice of movie, music or comic book only to kill time during the surgery, patients can also opt to sleep through it all with or without oral sedatives.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

The new advanced FUT technique has not only favored upon yielding the most naturalistic recipient coverage, but also concentrates on the resulting donor scar to be more cosmetically acceptable.The patient's hair is transplanted in naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 hairs, called follicular units.

Follicular units also contain sebaceous (oil) glands, nerves, a small muscle, and occasional fine vellus hairs. In FUT these small units allow the surgeon to safely transplant thousands of grafts in a single session, which maximizes the cosmetic impact of the procedure.

FUT is considered an advance over older hair transplantation procedures that used larger grafts & often produced unnatural look.The results will mimic the way hair grows in nature and will be undetectable as a hair transplant.
