Hair transplantation is a surgery where the hair transplant surgeon moves hair follicles to a bald spot from other areas of the body. Hair transplant surgery is mainly indicated in male baldness, women with male-pattern baldness, bald spot due to any injuries, etc. It can also be used to restore hair in the eyelashes, eyebrows, beard, etc.
The site from where the hair follicle gets harvested is the ‘donor site,’ and the balding part that receives the harvest is the ‘recipient site.’ The donor site is mostly the back or side of the head. There are two conventional methods for hair transplantation, which are:
1.Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS): Otherwise called strip harvesting, involves harvesting the hair follicles as one group from the donor site.
2.Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): It is a newer technique, where the surgeon cuts around a single hair, thus harvesting a single hair follicle at a time.
There are several reasons for hair loss and the treatment for which varies with the cause. So, before deciding to get hair transplantation done, it is advisable to consult a dermatologist or a trichologist to determine the cause of your hair loss.
