Hair Transplant

What is Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure that involves moving hair from a donor area (typically the back or side of the head) to a bald or thinning area of the scalp. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia. The two main types of transplant procedures are ‘Slit Grafts’, which contain 4 to 10 hairs per graft, and Micrografts, which contain 1 to 2 hairs per graft. Hair transplants are typically recommended for individuals with pattern baldness, which is primarily caused by genetics. Candidates for the procedure should have thicker areas of hair on their head.

There are two methods for performing a hair transplant: Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). With FUSS, a strip of skin is removed from the back of the head, which is then divided into tiny grafts containing one or a few individual hairs. With FUE, hair follicles are removed one by one from the back of the scalp. After the grafts are prepared, the surgeon cleans and numbs the area where the hair will be transplanted and creates small holes or slits for each graft. The grafts are then delicately placed into the holes or slits, with the help of other team members.
