Basically, hair transplantation is an operation where the hair from the back of your head is taken and moved to the area where hairloss has occurred. The hair which has been transplanted retains its characteristics of growth at the bald area. The individuals with sufficient donor hair on the sides of their scalp are the best suitable patients for the hair transplant surgery. But now the modern techniques have done many more advancements and made it accessible to many people.
The different techniques used by the hair restoration surgeons are punch grafting, hair graft, mini grafting/micro grafting, FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)/FUE, tissue expansion and flap surgery. But the best procedure used nowadays is optimal follicular unit procedure, which provides an extremely natural result.
The side effects of hair transplantation are very minor, which include slight pain and discomfort after operation, inflammation and the formation of scabs on the grafts. But the serious problems can be bleeding, infection and scarring, though they are very rare. The surgery costs start from Rs 25, 000 and can stretch till several lacs.
