By age 50, about 50% of substantial number of men and women-are affected by hair loss, much of which is hereditary.In men,he most common condition leading loss is called hair “Pattern Hair Loss or Alopecia Androgenetica”.  This affects only front & top “U” shaped central area of scalp. 
Hair transplantation surgery involves transferring the hair follicles from the donor area on the back and the side of the head,which has genetically strong hair.We use the roots (Follicles/ follicular units) of this permanent hair and graft them in the area where you have lost your hair is called the Follicular Hair TransplantThis can be done in two ways FUT and FUE.

The FUT hair transplantation is surgery that involves removing a narrow strip of hair-bearing scalp from the back of the head and using it to fill an area with thin or no hair.The surgeon , then injects an anaesthetic to numb the area where a narrow strip of scalp will be removed. After removing the strip of scalp with a scalpel, the surgeon closes the scalp.This area is immediately hidden by the hair around it.
 

Next, the strip of removed scalp is divided under magnification into into approximately 500 to 2,000 tiny grafts containing an individual hair or just a few hairs each. The number and type of graft used depends on the hair type, quality, and colour as well as the size of the area where it will be transplanted.

Then the surgeon cleans and numbs the area where the hair will be placed, creates holes or slits with a scalpel or needle, and carefully places each graft in one of the holes.

 Sometimes additional sessions are needed if you continue to lose hair or decide you want thicker hair.

The FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is a minimally invasive hair transplantation technique in which follicular unit grafts (hair follicles) are individually removed from the patient’s donor area and then individually transplanted to the recipient  area. These are removed using a power tool and then placed in the recipient area. The advantage is that there is no linear scar and no stitches are required, so the donor area will be minimally noticeable within just a few days and this technique is useful for men who want to keep their hair short.

After hair transplant,you may need to take pain medications and antibiotics for few days. Your surgeon will have you wear a surgical dressing over the scalp for at least a day or two.  Most people are able to return to work two to five days after surgery.

Within two to three weeks after surgery, the transplanted hair will fall out, but you should start to notice new growth within a few months.Additional procedures may be needed to improve the density.Dr Anup Dhir has extensive experience in all types of hair transplant.
