Hair Transplant is a surgical procedure in which hair is moved from the back and/or sides of the scalp, where it is permanent (donor area), to areas that are thinning or bald on the front, top, or crown of the scalp (recipient area). Once transplanted, the hair will continue to grow for a person’s lifetime.
The FUE hair transplant in Mumbai is the most popular procedure for men. FUE or “Follicular Unit Extraction” involves removing groups of healthy hair follicles or “grafts” from the back of the head and placing them into the bald or thinning area.
By using short-term anaesthetics, the FUE transplant procedure minimises patient discomfort. This method allows for fast recovery and minimal scarring, meaning that the patient can keep their hair as short as they want in the future without any scar tissue showing on the scalp.
At Krasa, along with the procedure, we offer follow-up treatments that stimulate hair growth and aid recovery.
The procedure of hair transplant through FUE technique follows the stages mentioned below:
The donor area is prepared by washing and shaving an area from the side or back of the head normally ear to ear. A local anaesthetic is applied to reduce discomfort whilst the doctor uses an advanced electronic punch to extract the individual hair grafts. An antiseptic dressing is applied to the donor area which is removed the next day.
The grafts are extracted using a 0.9mm electronic punch and categorised into grafts containing one, two or three hairs. Once selected, the hair are prepared for transplantation. The hair extraction process typically takes between 1-3 hours, depending on the number of grafts to be extracted.
The design, such as the frontal hairline or beard shape, is discussed with the patient and marked out in consultation and again before the surgery begins. Using a fine needle, small slits are made in the designated area into which the grafts are then placed one-by-one. The hair grafts are placed evenly into the small openings to match your existing hair pattern, angulation and desired density. Placement of grafts typically takes between 1-4 hours, depending on the number of grafts to be placed.
An aftercare plan, after the transplant procedure is provided that contains special shampoos and information on how to care for your transplanted hair. You’ll have a hair examination after 1 month to check the progress of your hair transplant. This will be followed up with a complimentary high-frequency laser treatment session that will promote hair growth. You’ll also receive advice on how to best care for your new hair.
