Hair transplantation is a technique to transplant hair from donor site that is the area where hair is present to the recipient site the area that is bald. Follicles are generally removed from the back of the head. These hairs are more resistant to hormonal changes and thus can be used in the process of hair transplantation. Two methods are used for hair transplantation as explained below:
- FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation): In this method a strip of scalp is cut out from the back of the head and is dissected into individual grafts. This process leaves a scar at the back of the head. This helps in covering a large portion of bald area.
- FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction): In this method, individual grafts are taken from the back of the head one by one. These grafts are then inserted in the sites on the front of the head or wherever there is hair loss. There are no stiches and cuts in this method and also it leaves no scar. The recovery time is much less than FUT.
Both the methods are surgical so it is necessary to consult a good doctor that has specialization for hair transplant in Delhi and who can explain the advantages and disadvantages of both the methods properly. Also, one must follow the after surgery care instructions properly for effective results and quick recovery. Swelling of the scalp, face is common for a few days.
