Frequently Asked Question

Hair Transplant is a method of growing hairs on the bald portion by moving the hair follicles from donor region to the recipient area. It is the surgical method by which hairs grow naturally.
The area from where the hairs are taken is known as donor region; and the area where the removed hairs are implanted to fill the baldness is called recipient area.

Talking about the popular hair transplant methods, FUE is the most suitable technique in terms of efficiency as well as affordability.

It is a painless & stitch-less technique that works by extracting the hair follicles one by one from the donor (baldness-resistant) area of the patient and subsequently, transplanting these follicular units to the recipient (bald) area.

A complete diagnosis & analysis is required to check whether the person is an ideal candidate or not. The blood tests are mandatory and the hair transplant candidate should not suffer from any major disease like sugar, blood pressure etc. The patient should also have healthy immune system along with sufficient amount of active hair follicular units at donor area.
  • Investigation about hair restoration on the internet is a mandatory step that one must do before undergoing the hair transplant surgery.
  • Check out the experience of the surgeons and their success rate in the surgeries performed by them till date. The surgeons having IAHRS certification or international alliance are considered more efficient & preferable.
  • Visit the clinic for analyzing the range of medical equipment and the level of hygiene & quality standards maintained there.

You need to be very careful about your recovery procedure. Getting a good hair transplant surgery is not at all sufficient to get desired results; the recovery procedure also plays equally important role. It is always better to be well prepared about all the recovery methods & precautions; so that you can get complete return value for the amount of money you’ve spent.

You also need to look after your donor area along with the recipient area after the treatment; so that both the areas can heal efficiently.

This is the most focusing aspect of hair transplant surgery as budget is the main concern of most of the patients. The major cost deciding factors for hair transplant procedure are:

  • Number of hair grafts
  • Location of clinic
  • Experience of surgeon
  • Technique of hair transplant
Not really, hair transplant is done with very fine insulin syringes which hurt minimally and patients are given with local anesthesia in the donor & recipient areas which do the nerve blocking for some time and the patients don’t feel any pain at all.

With FUE hair transplant technique, you’ll need only 2-3 days of rest period and afterwards, you can join your work place and start your routine activities.

After 3-4 weeks of hair transplant surgery, your transplanted hair will fall off on temporary basis and it is a part of the recovery process. Nearly 2-3 months after the implantation, the new hair follicles start growing and a year after, full improvement is noticeable and can be seen as natural hair.

There will be no major visible scars afterwards as FUE is a minimally invasive technique.

Now coming to the side effects of hair transplant surgery:

  • There can be some swelling over the scalp & forehead for 2-3 days after the treatment, but this is not a big concern as it passes off in very less time.
  • Local anesthesia used during the process of hair transplant can cause numbness in some cases, which can last from few days to few weeks; but it does not restrict the patients from doing normal day-to-day activities.
Don’t lose hope! In fact you should search a little more about the best hair transplant clinic/surgeon and you can also consult with multiple surgeons. If they recommend you to go for another hair transplant surgery, then you can consider it and this time, be very careful!
The transplanted hair will have the same characteristics as that of hair on your donor area. And when the hair transplant is done with the right choice of surgeon & procedure, the results are so natural looking that even your hair stylist will not recognize about your hair transplantation.
