Common Hair Transplant FAQs

When hair fall turns into permanent hair loss due to various reasons, you may begin to go bald. In this case, you may be looking at hair transplants as a hair loss treatment, but you have some doubts. Here is a FAQ about Hair Transplant to help you.

Your Hair Transplant Questions Answered

Before you fix up an appointment at a hair care clinic for a hair loss solution, you can get a clearer understanding of Hair Transplantation with our answers to your frequently asked questions.

What is Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant is a hair restoration technique through mild surgery. It involves removing healthy hair follicles from your own scalp and transplanting it on to the bald patch or hair-thinning region. A qualified and experienced hair transplant surgeon performs this hair loss treatment in a clinical setting.
Both men and women can benefit from hair transplants in the case of severe hair loss. However, to qualify for the procedure:
     You should not have any adverse reaction to medications like anaesthetics
     You should be generally healthy enough to undergo the operation
     You should have a healthy immune system
     Your hair loss or baldness should be extensive
     You should have enough healthy hair in your scalp in the donor region to facilitate an effective hair transplant

What is the Procedure Used in Hair Transplant?

While there are many hair transplant techniques, the most commonly used techniques are Follicular Unit Transplant, and Follicular Unit Extraction. Both are very effective procedures. Kaya Clinic, a reputed skin and hair care service provider, uses the FUE method, as it involves no major incisions in your scalp and so, does not require any stitches either.

Where is the Hair for Transplant Taken From?

Hair transplant is generally done for baldness caused by a hormone called DHT. This is a form of testosterone which can attach to hair follicles and destroy them. However, hair at the back and sides of the head are not vulnerable to DHT. So, healthy hair follicles from these areas are extracted for transfer to the bald area. Even if transplanted, these hair follicles remain resistant to DHT.

How is Hair Transplant Done in FUE?

Individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor area. The surgeon does a 1 mm incision around them, to extract the hair with the roots. These extracted hair follicles are then examined and the best of them are sorted into follicular units of two to four hair. The receiving region is prepared for transplant by creating tiny punctures using a special needle. The follicular units are then placed here carefully, so that they take hold and grow.

Will the Transplanted Hair Look Natural?

The surgeon creates the punctures in the bald region in a pre-planned pattern. This ensures the best usage of harvested hair so as to provide maximum coverage and also to resemble your natural hair growth style. This ensures that the baldness is covered optimally, and the new hair growth resembles your normal hair, to completely blend in and look natural.

Is the Procedure Safe?

FUE is a minimally invasive surgery. When done at a good clinic like Kaya, it is extremely safe.

Why Should You Choose Kaya Clinic for Hair Transplant?

Kaya hair care provides the best service for hair fall. Kaya Clinic uses the highly effective FUE method. At Kaya the procedure is done in a safe and hygienic well-equipped clinical setting. It is performed by a highly qualified surgeon with a lot of experience in successful hair transplant. He or she is supported by an expert medical team. You can rest assured the procedure will be safe and effective at Kaya.

How Long Before You See Results?

First, be prepared for the newly transplanted hair to fall out within a month, this is normal. Within 3 to 5 months, the transplanted follicles begin to take hold and put out new hair shafts. Around eight to ten months after the transplant, new healthy hair will begin to grow, matching the hair growth in the rest of your head.
You will be given post-transplant hair care instructions that you will have to follow strictly for the procedure to be effective. You will also be given some products for hair fall that help in inducing fast hair growth. Some time after new hair begins to grow on your scalp, Kaya will give follow-up hair treatments like PRP for hair, Nutri-Infusion hair treatment, and mild laser root stimulation treatment. All these enhance the effectiveness of the hair transplant procedure and ensure you soon have healthy hair growth in the transplant region.
