Pollution is at an all-time high, stress levels are sky rocketing, travelling has become a requisite, and with all this hair fall and baldness come as a painful side-effect. Oils, massages, therapeutic remedies, none seem to work as a long term solution. The introduction of Hair Transplant got some rave reviews. Though shunned earlier, now, hair transplant has been accepted as a safe and permanent solution to hair loss.
Hair Transplant also called as hair restoration or hair implantation, is a procedure that permanently restores hair by transplanting new follicles into balding or thinning areas. Hair Transplantation can be done by taking a single strip of hair or by removing follicles individually. The number of grafts needed depends on the patient and the size of the area being treated. Hair Transplantation is mainly used to treat male pattern baldness and can also be used to restore eye-brows, eye lashes, beard etc. The technique of hair transplant and hair restoration vary widely and so do the results. Most of the techniques used in the process are painless and cause very little or no discomfort and requires no maintenance.
The two main methods of Hair Transplantation are Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) & Follicular unit transplant (FUT).
