A study involving men aged between 18 and 50 in India reported a 50.4% prevalence of baldness [1]. Androgenetic alopecia is the most common form of hair loss in both men and women. This condition is also called male-pattern baldness in men [2]. Hair loss can be the result of modern lifestyle and other triggers such as:

What Is Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant surgery is also known as hair restoration surgery [3]. It is a procedure where hair from the donor area is transplanted to the bald parts of the scalp. For instance, hair follicles from the back of your head may be moved to balding front portion. There are two main types of hair transplant surgeries.

  • FUT  

Follicular Unit Transplantation involves removing a strip of skin from the donor area. Doctors then separate it into individual grafts that contain one or more hair follicles. These follicular units are then transplanted into the recipient area of the scalp. 

  • FUE 

Under Follicular Unit Extraction, individual hair units or follicles are directly picked from the donor area with tiny punch incisions. Then these hair follicles are transplanted into the recipient area by making tiny holes with a blade or needle. The rest of the procedure remains the same as above.

Hair Transplant Benefits 

  • Facilitates Natural Hair Regrowth

The transplanted hair from the surgery doesn’t look unnatural or fake. This is because it is your own hair that is transplanted from the area where there is good hair growth to the balding area of your scalp.

Unlike wigs and weaving, hair transplant surgery provides a natural-looking hairline. Thus, the transplanted hair doesn’t look mismatched when compared to your other hair. You also don’t need to use any special shampoos or chemicals to maintain transplanted hair. Hair transplantation is a one-time procedure. However, many people repeat the process after a year for more density and fullness of hair.

  • Provides a Safe and Natural Process

Hair transplant surgery is conducted under local anesthesia so that you don’t feel any pain during the sessions. If done right, the surgery leaves no visible scar. The procedure doesn’t involve any chemicals or medications that may damage your hair. Here, your existing hair from the donor area is transplanted to the recipient area making it purely a natural process.

  • Solves Balding Problems

Among all the other hair loss treatments, hair transplant surgery is effective as you will not experience hair loss or balding again. It frees you from all hair-related problems by providing a permanent solution for a receding hairline and bald spots on your scalp. This helps people socialize with confidence and peace of mind!

  • Improves Your Appearance 

Hair transplant surgery naturally improves your appearance and boosts your confidence. It provides you with a head full of hair that makes you look young and attractive. This surgery is one of the reliable methods that provides a permanent solution and improves the overall look of your hair and face.

  • Saves Costs in the Long Run

Although the cost of hair transplant surgery is more compared to non-surgical treatments, it is actually cost-effective. The other means of hair treatments may look affordable but require extensive maintenance that adds up costs over time. Hair transplant surgery, on the other hand, offers a permanent solution and is a one-time expense with basic to no maintenance cost. Being a one-time procedure, it saves you money that you would have otherwise spent on regular or follow-up visits.
