Common FAQs about Hair Transplant

If you are planning to undergo a hair transplant, you will naturally have a range of questions and concerns about the procedure. You should take every opportunity to learn more about the procedure. Knowing what to expect from a hair transplant and choosing the right hair transplant method will help you get the best results. 

Why Does Permanent Hair Loss Occur?


It happens when the hair follicles are permanently damaged in such a way that they can’t regrow lost hair. This damage can occur due to stress, unhealthy lifestyle, or certain hormonal imbalances. For some people, permanent hair loss will be pre-determined by their genes.

Does The Hair Transplant Work?


Hair regrowth by hair transplant is very effective as properly functioning follicles will be collected from areas that are resistant to irreversible hair loss. These healthy follicles will be transplanted to areas of the head with permanent hair loss. These transplanted follicles will take a hold of the skin and with time, they will start growing new hair. 

Where Is The Donor Area?


The areas from which the follicles are collected is known as the donor area. This donor area is usually the back and side of the head. In some cases, the doctor may also collect follicles from other areas of the body. The modern Follicular Unit Extraction method also allows doctors to extract hair from the neck, chest, and legs.       

How Long Does It Take To Complete A Hair Transplant procedure?


The duration of a hair transplant will depend upon the number of hair follicles that have to be collected. It also depends on how many patches of bald areas have to be transplanted. For example, Kaya’s Expert Hair Transplant Solution will take around six or eight hours to complete. You may also have to attend multiple sessions to get the best results.  

What Is The Modern Method Of Hair Transplant?


Follicular Unit Extraction for a hair transplant is a modern procedure that involves the use of a precision instrument. The doctor will use this tool to collect the hair follicles without making major incisions or cuts on the scalp. Kaya Clinic uses this hair transplant method to make small incisions that do not cause much harm to the skin around the targeted area. 

Is The Procedure Painful?


The doctor will inject local anesthesia on the scalp to remove any feeling of pain during the transplantation. After the transplant is completed, the doctor will prescribe certain painkillers to reduce the pain. You should only take the painkillers prescribed by the doctor because self-medication could end up harming the transplanted follicles. 

Will It Leave Scars On The Head?


FUE is a minimally invasive process and it will not leave any major scars on the head. Minute scars that may develop after the transplant won’t be clearly visible to the naked eye. Even if you have a short haircut, you don’t have to worry about visible scars on the scalp.

When Will New Hair Start To Grow?


It will take about a week for the transplanted follicles to firmly get a hold of the surrounding skin. After a month, the follicles will start growing weak strands of hair that will drop out. Hair strands will start to grow again after 3-5 months. The follicles will mature after 8-10 months, and the hair that grows will be thick and strong.    

What Is The Downtime After Having A Hair Transplant?


FUE is minimally invasive so any wounds that are left after the operation will heal very quickly. But you should avoid doing intense physical activities for a week after the transplant, as this could damage the transplanted follicles.  

How much does a hair transplant in Mumbai cost?


Kaya hair transplant cost in Mumbai starts from Rs. 35,999.
