Hair transplants are a surgical procedure that involves moving hair follicles from one part of the body, called the “donor site,” to a bald or balding part of the body known as the “recipient site.” The procedure is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness, but it can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery, such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants.
There are two main types of hair transplants: follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE).
FUT, also known as the “strip method,” involves removing a strip of skin from the donor site, typically the back of the head, and separating it into individual hair follicles. The hair follicles are then transplanted to the recipient site. FUT leaves a linear scar at the donor site, which is typically subtle and can be hidden by the patient’s hair (even when fairly short).
FUE involves removing individual hair follicles from the donor site using a small punch tool. The hair follicles are then transplanted to the recipient site. FUE does not leave a linear scar at the donor site – though it is not “scar less” and actually leaves thousands of small dot scars, but it is a more time-consuming procedure and may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. Growth is also more variable with FUE.
Both FUT and FUE hair transplants are performed under local anesthesia, and the procedure typically takes several hours to complete. After the procedure, the transplanted hair will fall out, but new hair will begin to grow in its place within a few months. The new hair will continue to grow and mature over the next year or so.
Hair transplants are generally considered to be safe, but like any surgical procedure, there are some risks involved. These may include infection, bleeding, and scarring at the donor or recipient site. It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider and a hair restoration specialist to determine if a hair transplant is the right treatment option for you.
The success of a hair transplant depends on several factors, including the quality of the hair follicles and the skill of the surgeon. It is important to do your research and choose a qualified and experienced surgeon to perform the procedure.
In summary, hair transplants are a surgical procedure that involves moving hair follicles from the donor site to the recipient site to treat baldness or to restore hair in areas affected by scars or thinning. There are two main types of hair transplants: FUT and FUE, both of which have their own advantages and disadvantages. Hair transplants are generally considered to be safe, but like any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider and a hair restoration specialist to determine if a hair transplant is the right treatment option for you.
