Hair transplantation/hair restoration is a surgical procedure done under local anesthesia That rearranges hair in a bald area of scalp by taking the hair grafts from the donor. The area from where hair grafts are obtained is known as the donor area, ie. the back of the head/beard.
The Hair transplantation surgery has been in extistence since the 1950s in the U.S, and has been transforming many heads from hairless to densely packed hair head. Technique has evolved a lot in recent years. There was an era when only men fall prey to hair loss and balding but the hanging lifestyle has made women easy target too and they are suffering from hair thinning, baldness and alopecia much like men, in fact more.
Hair Transplant procedure is widely conducted using two techniques, i.e., FUE and FUT. These techniques allow for plucking the hair bulbs from the donor region (nape, sides) of the patient and implant them to the bald area/thinning area (front, crown, temples, eyebrow, beard, moustache, widened parting). If performed and applicable appropriately under the standardized clinical protocols, this surgical procedure today gives the most natural and satisfying results in the large majority of cases that lasts long.
The final Result, usually a naturally looking full hair head and hair line is visible 9 -12 includes phases like shedding emergent and maturation after the procedure. Hair transplant is a great option to consider for hair loss coverage only if the candidate has a sufficient donor area. The amount of hair that can be withdrawn from the hair bearing donor area is limited, because there is less number of hairs that are DHT resistant and not all harvested hair re-grows. People can have the best results on medium severity baldness and/or androgenetic alopecia.
The hair restored by hair transplantation acts like natural hair and falls between two to four weeks followed by transplant. The roots thereafter begin sprouting hair organically and continue to do so for a lifetime. Administration of anesthesia makes it a painless procedure and the patient can return home the same day. Hair transplant is completely different from the non-invasive hair transplantation in which a pre-chosen base is fixed on scalp with agility. The results from the procedure vary from individual to individual and are linked to individual's natural hair quality too.
Many men have the desire to grow a thick, full beard. Not every man can make it happen, however, and that’s why procedures such as beard transplants have risen in popularity.
A beard transplant does what your genetics and other factors won’t allow you to do. Hair is taken from another part of your body (usually the scalp) and transplanted to your face, or wherever a beard or mustache may grow.
Eyebrow restoration are quite common due to the various benefits that it adds in the life. It rectifies the presence of distorted and over plucked eyebrows. It enhances the self-perception of the individuals who lost their eyebrows because of injury, wounds, consumes, seniority, thyroid issues or certain medications.
Body Hair Transplant
Body hair transplant (BHT) is a procedure of transferring the hair grafts from anywhere of the body parts to the recipient area. It is most appropriate for facial hair transplantation such as Moustache, Beard, Eyebrows reconstruction or in some cases of the burnt & accidental scars, mainly on the moustache, beard or on the eyebrows, which degrade the persons’ beauty and appearance. The implanted hair grows naturally and hides the scars aesthetically. These hairs can be taken from the chest, armpits, abdomen or anywhere in the body.

Hair Loss Classification
Another very important factor to consider for hair transplant candidacy is the severity of the hair loss, or the quantity of donor hair that is available to implant to scanty sites of the scalp. With the severe hair loss classifications – (Class 7 on the Norwood Scale for males and Class 3 on the Ludwig Scale for women), the amount of donor hair available on patient’s head will identify the final outcomes that can be anticipated from a hair restoration procedure. A consultation to get an idea of your hair loss classification will clearly set your candidacy about your hair restoration options.
What are the different options available for hair restoration?
FUT Hair Treatment: - FUT also called Strip Surgery is ahair transplantation procedure that consists of removing a strip of tissue with hair from the hair bearing donor region, which is the back and sides of the head. The hair follicles are then transplanted from this strip in the recipient area which is the region with the scanty hair and baldness by the clinical team.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):- In FUE hair transplant, each hair follicle is extracted from the donor region using a small punch. This surgical hair restoration is repeated to as many times till sufficient follicular units are implanted for hair restoration. The follicular units are then harvested in the required recipient area which is/are prepared in advance by using a scalpel or a fine needle point tool.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP):- The ‘state of the art’, ‘safest’, ‘non surgical’, ‘completely natural’, kind of hair restoration technique in which the patient’s own blood is first taken, centrifuged and then injected into the scalp with a thin needle. The blood plasma (PRP) consists of active growth factors which helps in encouraging natural hair growth, fuller hair volume, and healthier looking head of natural hair. The processed blood called the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) blood, contains rich in certain growth factors, proteins and minerals is injected into the scalp to perform their requisite job in your blood cells of promoting naturally stimulated hair growth.
