What is a Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is transferring follicular units from a healthy donor area (mostly from the back of the head) to the area suffering from hair loss. The hair follicles at the back of the head are immune from Dihydrotestosterone DHT (the hormone that causes hair loss), thus, they are not subjected to fall off. We can say that the donor follicles are resistant to hair loss, meaning that in the vast majority of cases a hair transplant constitutes a permanent solution for hair loss.

What to Expect from a Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is the only solution to get natural hair that grows and can be shaped or cut the way you want. However, many men think hair transplant restores their hair to where it was when they were kids. While it gives them the confidence and peace of mind of a 12-year-old boy, it might not restore the same density.


The Techniques of Hair Transplant

There are two main hair transplant techniques available today: DHI and FUE with its derivatives; Manual FUE, Sapphire FUE, Gold FUE, Micro FUE, Percutaneous (Perkutan), Hyper FUE, Soft FUE etc.


FUE is the common technique for hair transplant nowadays, as it allows for the transplantation of the maximum number of grafts. FUE is an excellent all-around technique as it is suitable for the majority of patients. FUE involves extracting individual grafts from the donor area before opening microchannels in the transplanted area and placing the grafts in these channels. The advantage of extracting the grafts individually is that this leaves minimal scarring and leads to a swift recovery time.

DHI is a good technique for creating density in smaller areas, such as the front hairline, and is particularly useful for those seeking a minimal or partial transplant. It involves using an implanter pen to open the channels and position the extracted grafts in one movement. DHI has a faster recovery time than ‘Classic’ FUE but it can only be used for smaller quantities of grafts as it is more time-consuming.
