Hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure to treat hair loss which removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the 'donor site', to a bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'.
Follicular units are extracted individually by means of an FUE machine or derma-punch, from the donor and are implanted where they have the loss of hair. Only healthy hair follicles which are genetically designed to grow for lifetime and resistant to hormonal changes are chosen and implanted.
FUE technique is preferred because there is no suturing, and no scarring, also the recovery is quicker and results are natural – not like the so called grass doll appearance.
FUT involves removing a 6 to 10 inch skin strip from the back donor area, dividing it into grafts of either individual hair or a group of hair. Follicular unit transplant (FUT) is the traditional hair transplant method which involves extracting a linear strip of hair bearing skin from the back or the side of the scalp. The strip is then dissected to separate individual grafts.
At The Body Perfect Cosmetic Clinic, we provide both FUT and FUE methods. Type of surgery and selection of patient is done after thorough examination and diagnosis of patient ‘s physical condition and their aesthetic expectations. Facial Hair Transplant could help hide scars or increase the beard hair growth and for facial areas where hair are thinning.
In FUT method, the follicles or individual grafts are obtained by dissecting a strip of scalp which is cut usually from the back of the head.
In FUE method , using a specialized skin punch rotary device, individual follicle / grafts are extracted from the donor area one by one. It is done under local anesthesia to make the procedure comfortable for the patient.
Tiny implant sites are created using very fine specialized blades and needles in the balding areas after numbing the area with local anesthetic injections. These grafts are then inserted in the sites on the front of the head or wherever there is hair loss.
Though hair transplantation has no major side effects, yet there are a few ways in which our body reacts to the transplant.
