What is Hair Transplantation ?

Hair transplantation or Hair transplant is the procedure through which individual hair follicles are transplanted from a part of the body to another which is balding. The site from where the hair is taken, is the donor site and where transplanted is the recipient site. Besides scalp hair, the procedure can also be performed to restore hair of beard, mustache, eyebrows, eyelashes etc.

Medical conditions: Heredity, male pattern baldness, anemia, hypothyroidism, Vitamin B deficiency, autoimmune-related hair loss, polycystic ovary syndrome, trichotillomania and such other medical conditions can lead to hair loss.

Drugs causing hair loss: Excess vitamin A consumption, chemotherapy, antidepressants, blood thinners, hypertension drugs like beta-blockers, methotrexate, lithium, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen and anabolic steroids can also lead to hair fall.

Other causes of hair loss can be:

  • Lack of protein
  • Sudden excess weight loss causing vitamin or mineral deficiencies
  • Pregnancy, birth control and menopause
  • Physical emotional and mental stress
  • Physical trauma or severe illness
  • Aging
  • Over-styling of hair and chemicals
Treatment Options

Hair loss can be treated according to the severity of the condition. Usually temporary conditions can be dealt with home remedies, vitamin and mineral supplements, medicines such as minoxidil and finasteride.

Severe condition leading to baldness can be treated with hair replacement procedures like:

Hair grafting or Hair transplant is a simple outpatient procedure performed in the dermatology office. Hair is harvested from the donor area as grafts and relocated to the balding or thinning area.

Grafts can be categorized according to the number of hair shape and size such as punch, mini-grafts (2-4 hairs), Micro-grafts (1-2 hairs), round and square grafts (upto 20 hairs), Strip grafts (up-to 40 hairs) and so on.

Scalp reduction is done by incising the bald area and stretching the area with hair over it. However this procedure is beneficial for top and back areas of the head and not the front.

Punch Harvesting is a technique where grafts that are punched are then lifted with forceps and relocated to the donor site and sutured or stapled.

Excision technique is when graft is excised and transplanted as a strip to the donor site. If multiple strips are excised then it is called strip harvesting.

Surgery Information

Surgery Time Depends on the number of follicles
Anesthesia Type Local Anesthesia
Hospitalization Outpatient
Stitch Removal  Stitches of donor site either get dissolved or can be removed after 10 days
Initial Recovery Time No downtime, normal activities can be resumed the same day

Am I a good Candidate?

The procedure is generally indicated in the following conditions:

  • Loss of hair in front of the forehead or recession at the temple area
  • More extensive hair loss on the top and crown area
  • Thinning of the area of scalp
  • Thinning eyebrows, beard or mustache

Hair Transplant Options

The 3 main hair transplant methods are:

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT): In this procedure, a strip of tissue with hair is removed and the hair follicles from it are implanted in areas that have scanty hair.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): In this procedure, a small punch is used to remove individual hair follicles. They are then implanted in the scalp using a fine needle point instrument. One of the most popular hair transplant methods, it has a distinct advantage over FUT – it does not cause any scarring.

Direct Hair Implant (DHI): DHI is the most advanced hair transplant method. This treatment is a painless procedure that is performed using precise micro-surgical tools. The advantage of DHI is that each hair follicle is placed at a specific depth and angle which provides absolutely natural results along with maximum hair density.

How is Hair Transplantation done?

Step 1

The procedure involves taking a strip of skin along with the hair follicles from the donor area (back or side of the scalp of the patient) and cutting them in single or multiple sets of grafts.

Step 2

When grafts are taken, your surgeon may periodically inject small amounts of saline solution into the scalp to maintain proper skin strength.

Step 3

The donor site holes may be closed with stitches-for punch grafts, a single stitch may close each punch site; for other types of grafts, a small, straight-line scar will result. The stitches are usually concealed with the surrounding hair.

What is the Recovery after Hair Transplantation like?

There is no recovery time/downtime necessary after hair transplantation surgery. Stitches of the donor site either get dissolved or can be removed after 10 days by any doctor near your place. The crust sheds off on its own gradually somewhere between 3-4 weeks.
Most transplanted hair usually shed in about 3 weeks but the roots remain alive and active under the skin and the new hair grows from them in 3-4 months.

What Results Can I Expect from Hair Transplantation?

Hair transplant is one of those procedures that have dramatic results. One can expect to have thick hair at the balding areas within 8-12 months after the procedure, which is permanent.

Both of us were very pleased with the professional care provided to us from the first email to enquiry to the moment we stepped foot in India. We have never received such wonderful hospitality and always attending to our needs. We would both certainly recommend Indicure for any treatments and/or surgeries. We have been utterly amazed at what India has to offer and will definitely visit again.

But it not any less of what we would have received here.

Thank you IniCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in selling up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare team. Your Professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated my Dad and we are so grateful for that.

Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.

The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
