A hair transplant is an exacting hair loss treatment, involving a team of nurses, technicians and the surgeon. The procedure is carried out under local anesthetic, combined with mild sedation. The procedure is virtually pain-free.
First the hair grafts must be carefully extracted and separated into individual follicles or groups of 2 or 3 hairs, these are called follicular units. The recipient sites are then prepared with delicate instruments.
The procedure can take between 2 to 6 hours, depending on the number of hair grafts transplanted, and the area and qualities of the recipient area.
After a hair transplant there can be some mild discomfort in the donor or recipient areas, but many patients say they do not even need to take analgesics, although these are provided as part of the post-op treatment.

The surgery involves removing hair from one area of scalp which is called by donor area, (usually the back or side of the scalp), and implant it on another, usually the top of the scalp. The surgery can also be performed to help with facial or body hair loss, if needed.

There are two well known techniques of hair transplant FUE and FUT
Though there are various techniques for hair restoration, there is even robotic hair transplant but FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) is considered to be the most popular one.
In FUE technique healthy hair follicles are directly removed from the donor area (usually back of your head where the density of hair is high) one by one using a tiny special machine and then placed in recipient area. FUE procedure leaves a tiny hole as the follicular is collected directly from the donor area. This process is painless however it takes some time.

Unlike FUE in FUT method the entire strip of the scalp is removed from the donor the back of the head and is dissected into individual grafts for implantation. It is performed in a single session under local anesthetic.

But if its just a receding hairline then a transplant surgery isn’t really required but PRP therapy (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is sufficient for hair regrowth.

The recovery of hair transplant surgery depends on the extent and complexity of the procedure, Pain medications prescribed by your physician can be used to control pain. If there are any stitches, it will be removed within 7-10 days. After having done the procedure one may be advised to avoid strenuous activity as it may increase blood flow to the scalp and further may cause your incisions to bleed. Some patients may also experience swelling. It generally takes about 2 weeks for redness and scabs to go away.

Hair transplantation surgery is performed by a physician with specialty training in plastic surgery or, less commonly, dermatology. Each surgery lasts two to three hours during which approximately 250 grafts will be transplanted. A moderately balding man may require up to 1,000 grafts to get good coverage of a bald area; consequently, a series of surgeries scheduled three to four months apart is usually required. Individuals may be completely awake during the procedure with just a local anesthetic drug applied to numb the areas of the scalp. Some persons may be given a drug to help them relax or may be given an anesthetic drug that puts them to sleep.

The most common transplant procedure uses a thin strip of hair and scalp from the back of the head. This strip is cut into smaller clumps of five or six hairs. Tiny slits are made in the balding area of the scalp, and a clump is implanted into each slit. The doctor performing the surgery will attempt to recreate a natural-looking hairline along the forehead. Minigrafts, micrografts, or implants of single hair follicles can be used to fill in between larger implant sites and can provide a more natural-looking hairline. The implants will also be arranged so that thick and thin hairs are interspersed and the hair will grow in the same direction.

Another type of hair replacement surgery is called scalp reduction. This involves removing some of the skin from the hairless area and “stretching” some of the nearby hair-covered scalp over the cut-away area.

It is important to be realistic about what the final result of a hair transplant will look like. This procedure does not create new hair. Rather, it simply redistributes the hair that an individual still has. Chest hair has been experimentally transplanted onto the scalp. As of 2003, this procedure has not been widely used.

Hair Transplant procedure are depend on method that is taken by the Clinic and Doctor on patient but hair transplant can be are mainly proceed through >>>
Platelet Rich Plasma:
These process was followed a lot as in these as for hair re-growth, PRP is definitely very effective therapy but not for everyone. PRP uses the platelet from blood which is rich in plasma and after that injected back at the area where treatment is required, the cells adopts a regenerative growth which results into hair growth in a natural manner.

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation):
It mainly deals with the follicles i.e. the way in which follicles are extracted. In FUT a complete layer of follicle called stripe will be extracted usually from the back of the head. The follicles extracted are than placed in area where hair is less, so that it can grow there.

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction):
FUE can be termed as smaller version of FUT with more benefits. In FUE instead of a complete strip of the scalp individual follicular units are extracted directly from the scalp and planted to the bald area.

The success of hair transplantation lies in its advanced techniques and best results. With the modern technology of FUE the concept of hair transplantation has changed a lot. Many hair doctors have also already developed in FUE technology and are using much more advanced tools and techniques in Follicular unit extraction hair transplantation. With this they are sure of giving desired results to their patients.
As FUE is concerned it not only eliminates the problems of using stitches and cuts but also helps in speedy recovery which was not expected in previous techniques of hair transplantation. It is very true that expert hair doctors and experienced hair surgeon only considered FUE when they need better results from hair transplantation and as per as best Hair Transplant in Andheri is concerned either FUE or combination of FUE with FUT is only selected as it is latest and modern technology in the field of hair transplantation.
