Hair Transplant surgery


This minor surgical procedure is performed for cosmetic reasons, the main reason being that of replacing hair lost through baldness. This typically affects more men than women, though women can experience this as well albeit to a lesser extent, and is usually attributed to the ‘male pattern baldness’’.

For many men or women, being bald is an undesirable state. The possession of a full head of hair is seen as a signifier of youth and vigour. So, any loss of that hair is viewed in a negative light, resulting in feelings of depression and inadequacy. Male pattern baldness affects most men and happens gradually over many years, usually culminating in baldness by late middle age. It can happen for a variety of reasons, with heredity playing a major part.

The treatments for this include wigs, medication and scalp surgery. One such form of scalp surgery is a hair transplant. This involves the surgeon removing one section of hair from a healthy area and transplanting it to the bald section. This process is repeated as and where necessary.

The surgical Procedure

A hair transplant session is carried out under a local anaesthetic and can last up to 4 hours depending on the size of the area and number of hairs to be transplanted. The surgeon will numb the area designated for the harvesting of the healthy hair. The surgeon will remove a cluster of hair follicles from that area, and then will transfer it to the required area.

Depending on the size of the area for transplantation, this process is repeated several times until the required area is completed. The hair is placed in the direction in which it is meant to grow in order to ensure a natural look. Once this process is finished, the surgeon will then sew up the area from which the hair was taken from and cover it with a bandage.

Multiple sessions may be required in some cases.

Postoperative Recovery

As with all cosmetic procedures, you need to have realistic expectations. Most hair transplants are successful, with newly transplanted hairs growing 16 weeks after the procedure though it can take up to 9 months for the complete growth. It is important to note that the most successful transplants are those in which the patient started with thicker and substantial hair. If you do not have much hair to start with then this procedure will not result in a full head of hair, although it will improve on what you have got.

Transplanted hair is subject to the ageing process in the same way as the existing hair in that there will be some slight reduction in density over time.

FAQs for Hair Transplant


How long is the recovery?

Most hair transplants are successful, with newly transplanted hairs growing 16 weeks after the procedure though it can take up to 9 months for the complete growth.

What type of surgeon should perform my procedure?

The ideal this type of doctor is certified by the Board of Plastic and is specially trained in plastic surgery of the surgeries and surrounding structures of the face. General cosmetic surgeons do not undergo such specialized training in plastic surgery of the Hair Transplant.

With regards to my hair implant procedure, would you be doing the “strip procedure” or the “follicular unit extraction” method ?

We are doing FUT method.  The result is better because root canal.

FUT method is for the best results but it may leave a scar. Will the scar be very obvious. 

FUT Method is the best result for hair transplant because each graft get root canal.  So possibility of hair regrew.   The scar may be obvious, if the surgeon performed too many grafts per session in one trip.  For our recommendation, each session should be limit up to 2,500 grafts per trip.  The result less scar can be seen.


All surgery carries risks – But can minimize by closely following your surgeon’s advice on follow up care during the healing process.
