Hair transplantation surgery is a permanent solution that requires no on-going maintenance. Hair transplantation is widely considered to be the most effective option for restoring hair because it’s a permanent, relatively simple procedure, and it achieves a natural look. The newly transplanted hair is artistically placed to complement the natural growth of the patients’ hairline and their facial features and give them the most natural looking results. Unlike hairpieces which may not exactly match your hair colour and type, hair transplantation looks completely natural because it is your own hair – just moved to a new spot.
Two types of hair transplant surgery may be adopted
Follicular Unit extraction or FUE is a highly popular and evolving hair transplant technique in which a small round punch is used to extract follicular units from a patient’s bald resistant donor areas one at a time. Without the need of a linear Incision on the donor area. These 1, 2 and 3 hair follicular unit grafts are then transplanted into a patient’s balding areas.
This is a procedure in which small clusters of hairs or ‘follicular units’ are removed from the donor area of hair (the fringe of hair around your head) in a strip, and inserted into the recipient area (the bald area of your head). These are naturally occurring units which if transplanted well, will replicate this natural growth in the recipient area of the scalp.
Follicular Unit Transplantation is the usual technique to treat female and male pattern hair loss. This method also corrects natural looking transplants and repair eyebrows etc.
