Hair restoration surgery is the procedure performed in India by highly qualified Hair Transplant Surgeons to restore the hair to the bald areas of the skirt. It is a permanent solution to hair loss baldness.They are different techniques for hair transplantation. FUE hair transplantation is the most common hair restoration operation performed.
What is hair transplantation operation?
Hair transplants include the extraction of grafts from a donor site, typically the back of the scalp, into the recipient area, the bald area.
It can be carried out in two ways –
Follicular unit transplantation (FUT), which collects a strip of hair-bearing scalp tissue from the back of the scalp, is done by separate follicular units, then transferred into the donor area.Follicular unit extraction (FUE) in which individual hair follicle units are harvested from the donor area with the help of a motorised punching machine and are then implanted into the recipient area simultaneously.
Flap operation is more complex and involves turning a flap of hair in the bald area.
In the tissue expansion surgery, the scalp of the hair bearing is extended with a tissue expander and the expanded tissue is transferred to the bald area.
Scalp reduction operation simply removes the bald area and sutures the hair-carrying areas on the scalp together.
Who is a suitable hair transplantation candidate?
Anyone with a scalp and a good donor area can have a hair transplant operation
Donor area is the area that is used to extract hair follicle grafts. This includes the scalp back.
Other factors such as hair colour and texture also influence the results of hair transplantation.
Hair transplantation surgery can improve your overall appearance and boost your self-confidence.
Who’s a poor hair transplant surgeon candidate?
People with hair dilution in the back of the scalp (donor area) and advanced hair loss are not suitable for hair transplant operation.
People with uncontrolled high blood pressure, problems with blood clots or the tendency to form excessive scars are also at high risk for complications during or after surgery.
How does hair transplantation operation take place?
Hair transplantation consists mainly of four phases.
The following steps are:
- Hair Transplantation Preparation
- Multiple harvest
- Creation of the recipient site
- Hair follicle transplantation
- Hair Transplantation Preparation
The preparation phase involves the disinfection of the harvest (donor) and the transplant (recipient) area and the administration of anaesthesia.
Although this is the procedure before hair transplantation, this stage in which anaesthesia is administered is in a certain way the phase that determines the comfort of the operation.
Hair Transplantation Anaesthesia
Hair transplantation is carried out under local anaesthesia, which is given by injection.
Following anaesthesia in hair transplants, the process is to separate hair follicles from the skin using a motorised bouncing device.
Grab harvesting is a very important and important step in hair transplantation operations as it determines the end results.
The aim is to give the surgery the most natural and perfect care without leaving any traces of an operation behind. The grafts should therefore be harvested in a regular pattern that skips certain follicles to make the procedure scarlet. If the left side grows hair over follicles, they should have a sufficient even density to cover the extracted areas.
Creation of the recipient site
Creation of the recipient site is another important step.
The decisive factor for how natural the results will be after the operation depends on the density achieved, taking into account the correct angles and direction of hair growth.
Incisions on the recipient site are made according to these two factors to produce the most natural results.
Hair follicle transplantation
Implantation in the last step of the extracted hair follicle grafts. During the implantation, the surgeon should make sure that the hair roots are not damaged during their retention and transfer.
What should I expect to recover from my hair transplant?
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), in relation to other forms of hair transplant surgery, is linked to a shorter recovery time. FUE is therefore the most popular procedure performed worldwide.
Use pain killers like Paracetamol to reduce pain and discomfort after surgery.
Take a couple of days off from work to allow your hairline to settle down.
If your scalp looks pink and feels tight, it’s completely normal. The areas in which the donor hair is implanted will have crusted or formed scabs which fall off in a couple of days.
What are DOs and DONTs after hair transplantation?
Take your medication on schedule at a certain time of the day.
Sprinkle the normal saline regularly on the hair transplanted for a week. Use the salt water provided by the clinic.
Continue to take oral medicines for hair loss. Minoxidil should start one month after the operation.
You can continue your daily work as usual.
You can also begin light exercises in morning or evening walks.
After 3 days, you may begin to have normal sex life.
For a minimum of 3 weeks, cover the head with a surgical cap to prevent exposure to heat, dust and sunshine.
Press the front head from the centre to the side to prevent the eyes from swelling.
After shampooing, the hair transplanted should be dried from behind, from top to bottom, and the temple area.
Use normal sterile saline from the clinic to water the first week’s roots. You can use mineral water after wards.
Avoid drinking alcohol for the first 2 days.
Do not use tap water until 2 weeks on transplanted hair.
For at least one month, avoid heavy exercises.
To prevent swelling, avoid bending down for the first 5 days.

Caffeine ought to be reduced to a minimum.
Where can I expect the hair to grow?
The newly transplanted hair is dropping; it is a normal hair transplant reaction known as a ‘thermal shock.’ After the hair losses, in five to six weeks they will begin to regrow.
The greased hair begins to grow new hair. Following the normal growth/loss cycle, the newly grown hair begins after three months. Enhance hair growth by choosing a PRP session. See the full result of your hair transplantation from 6 to 12 months after the operation.
What are the risks of hair transplantation operation?
Hair transplantation operation is normally safe by a qualified, experienced surgeon. However, given that every body is unique in its way of healing, the result can never be predicted at 100 percent.
As with any operation, infection may occur. There may be excessive bleeding and/or heavy scars.
There is also a risk that some grafts are not “taken up,” meaning that some grafts do not set up blood at the recipient site. So the grafts don’t grow and make hair. If the percentage of failed grafts is high, repeated operations may be necessary.
Sometimes a complication called “cobble stoning” may occur. The grafts are considered to be raised bumps. There is nothing to do in this condition except to camouflage it with the surrounding hair.
Finally, in the case that the customer does not comply with the post-operative hair loss treatment, existing hair may gradually dilute and then go away, leaving an island of transplanted hair in the front that looks patchy and unnatural. In such cases, a second surgery is required to cover the new bald area.
What hair transplantation procedures for women are recommended?
Hair dilution is also a very common problem in women. It usually happens due to advancing age and hormonal changes in menopause. Women tend to have more co-dilution.
And it’s not just men who have to deal with hair loss. Menopause and advancing age are the most common causes. Weaving of the central parting is more common in women than men. rather than bald patches or complete hair loss. Surgery to fill in thin areas is usually FUE (Facial Unveiling Extraction).
Is there a difference between Beard and Moustache transplants?
Being a man with a thick beard and moustache is the newest fashion trend for men.
It’s true that not everyone is blessed with a dense growth for the best styling. If you’re looking for a more intense look, beard and moustache hair transplantation is the answer.
What is the procedure for beard and moustache transplant.
When it comes to beard and moustache transplantation, it’s the same procedure as for scalp hair transplantation. Because FUE is used, there are no stitches, and the procedure is virtually scarless because there are no stitches.
Are there any suitable candidates?
In order to increase the density of the hair on the beard and/or moustache, this procedure can be used. The same goes for anyone who has lost hair in this area due to a medical condition, or because of a condition called “traction alopecia”.
To what should I look forward during my recuperation time?
In just a week, the transplanted area will look completely natural. It takes about two weeks for the donor area to fully recover.
Can you tell me when I can expect to see the result.
After 6 to 9 months, the final results are visible. Beard and moustache will become thick and natural looking.
The Eyebrow Transplant: What Is It?
An individual’s eyebrows play a vital role in their appearance. As well as defining one’s appearance and personality. When communicating with others, they are a part of the emotional expressions.When you lose your eyebrows, it can be even more traumatic than losing your hair on your head. Age, permanent makeup, and chemotherapy can all cause eyebrow loss. Eyebrow transplantation is used to restore the eyebrows that have been lost.
An eyebrow transplant consists of the following steps.
Having your eyebrows transplanted is a delicate procedure that requires a great deal of care and consideration.
FUE is used because it produces the most natural and aesthetic results.
Defining eyebrow shape and hair follicle direction and angle is the first step in the procedure. With extreme caution, this should be carried out.
Hair transplantation on the scalp, beard, and moustache follow the same general procedure as eyebrow transplantation.
Are there any suitable candidates?
Anyone with irreversible hair loss in the eyebrows, whether partial or complete, can benefit from an eyebrow transplant.
When can I expect to see the results of my work?
The eyebrows will begin to grow in 3 months, but the final results may take up to 9 months to appear.
As a hair transplant procedure, how can PRP be used?
In all FUE procedures, PRP is used. A few benefits of PRP include:
Faster tissue healing, both in the donor and recipient areas.
Growth phase extension for hair follicles during active growth (anagen).
In the recipient area, transplanted follicles have a higher rate of survival.
A greater number of grafts are absorbed in the recipient site.
By stimulating new blood vessels to grow in transplanted areas, PRP promotes the growth of new hair roots.
It is therefore recommended that PRP treatment be taken after hair transplant surgery in order to enhance the growth of transplanted and existing hair.
