Hair transplant surgery is performed on both men and women with the goal of increasing hair density and improving appearance. Of course, choosing this type of hair restoration or baldness treatment should be done with the consultation of a doctor because hair transplantation may not always yield results for certain types of baldness. There are different methods of performing this surgery that is all based on moving hair from the back of the head to the balding areas in the front. The surgeon tries his/her best to transplant as much hair as possible without leaving a scar. Nonetheless, the final results of a hair transplant surgery will be different for each person.
How Is Hair Transplant Surgery Performed?
Hair transplantation can be performed in two different ways, follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular isolation technique (FIT). During a FUT, a thin strip of skin from the hair follicle bank at the back of the head is removed. Then, smaller grafts are made from this strip and transplanted in the balding areas. Nowadays, FUT is not commonly used. During a FIT, which is a newer method, hair follicles are extracted from the hair bank and transplanted to the bald area individually. FIT causes less scarring and results in more natural-looking hair. In another method, SUT, the doctor can use modern equipment to extract the follicles rather than doing it manually, which causes fewer side effects. This is an outpatient procedure that is performed with local anesthesia. The hair transplant process can take more than four hours depending on the size of the bald area. The number of required sessions for a hair transplant varies from patient to patient.
