We always prefer to stay fit and healthy in an overall manner but many times we neglect the importance of healthy hair.

If thinning up top or going bald really bothers you, the Hair Transplant procedure can be one way to feel more confident about your looks.


What is Hair Transplant?


Hair transplant is a process that involves the removal of hair from the scalp or beard and planting them into the parts where no hair growth is seen. This process is also used in transplanting hair in lashes and brows. By passing time many new surgical technologies have been developed with comparatively quick healing and more natural-looking results.


There are two types of Hair Transplant Surgeries :


  • Follicular unit strip surgery Hair Transplant

Under FUSS, the surgeon removes a 6- to 10-inch strip of skin from the back of your head. They set it aside and stitch the scalp closed. This area is immediately covered by the hair around it.

Later the strip of removed scalp is divided into 500 to 2,000 tiny grafts, each with an individual hair or just a few hairs. The number and type of graft you get depend on your hair type, quality, density, and the expertise of the surgeon.

FUSS can be done in a single setting. It is a manual and time taking process but gives natural results and leaves behind scar line which is hidden by existing hair.


  • Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplant 

Under FUE, the entire scalp is trimmed. Then, the hair follicles are removed one by one from there. The area heals with small dots, which your existing hair will cover.

After that point, both procedures are the same. After preparing the grafts, the surgeon cleans and numbs the area where the hair will be implanted, creates holes or slits with a blade or needle, and delicately places each graft in the holes. They’ll probably get help from other team members to plant the grafts, too.
