Hair transplantation is a surgery that moves hair and hair follicles from a part of your body called the donor site to the bald or balding part called the recipient site. It is done with the help of a scalpel or punch graft instrument. The removed hair strands from one part of body are placed into tiny holes of the bald scalp. Hair transplantation is either done by follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular unit transplant (FUT) method.
Surgical hair restoration, or surgical hair transplant procedures works essentially by extracting hair from a hair-loss resistant area and planting them on the recipient’s balding area. Thus, the surgical hair transplant treatment can also be appropriately termed as hair implants.
Conventional surgical hair transplant procedures for hair restoration, which are still highly practised, involve cutting off a strip comprising of the upper layer of the skin from the back and sides of the scalp. This method of hair transplant is called the FUT method. During this procedure, individual hair units are then removed, and hair implants are done. This type of hair transplant is highly invasive, painful and leaves ugly scars behind.
Later, hair transplant techniques comprising of the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), were developed. It allowed individual hair to be extracted directly out of the donor area, which can then be implanted in the donor site, thus changing the way hair transplant procedures or surgeries were performed till then.
Soon, the healthcare fraternity realised that the hair transplant techniques through extracting follicular units, one-by-one, needed improvement especially in the context of reducing the visible scarring from hair implants punch. In simple words, it meant there was a need to switch to better hair transplant procedures since it required surgical expertise and technological advancements.

Anyone who wants to regain natural hair needs to do a hair transplant. But generally, as per the science of Trichology, to have genetically safe hair, a person has to be beyond 25 years of age.
Earlier hair transplant was thought to be only for aging men suffering from baldness, but this misunderstanding is now getting cleared. Men & women are more aware, watch out for the right signs, consult trichologists and take informed decision to opt for hair transplants.
Apart from being a solution for irreversible hair loss, hair transplants play a significant role as a solution for certain conditions like scarring alopecia (caused by injury or burns) and in the reconstruction of facial hair like eyebrows and mustache lost due to physical injury or genetic anomaly.
