The Hair Transplant Procedure
Hair restoration process involves taking hair follicles (usually from the back) and transplanting them to the balding area. New hair grows over the course of six to eight months and resulting in a gradual change in the person’s appearance. Hair transplantation can be performed by two techniques that are:
Follicular unit extraction is the process where hair follicles are extracted transferred one by one from the nape and other areas (usually the area between the ears) to the balding area using fine-tipped needles. The FUE hair transplant method involves no stitches, no scars, minimal bleeding and no swelling.
Follicular Unit Transplantation involves removing a strip of skin from the scalp and transplanting the follicular units from the strip to the balding area. This type of hair transplant mimics a person’s natural hair growth thus maintaining the hair’s natural structure.
Although both methods involve surgery, it can be performed in outpatient centers under local anaesthesia and sometimes mild sedation.

Is Hair Transplant Painful?
Many people who think about having hair transplant worry if the procedure would be painful. Just thinking about someone making cuts in your scalp seems horrifying. But the truth is far from that. Although, the injections given for anaesthesia might seem scary, the actual procedure is relatively pain-free.

Your doctor will also advise you to wear a surgical dressing over the scalp for a day or two. Most people are able to return to work two to five days following the procedure.
The transplanted hair will fall out after 2-3 weeks and new growth should be noticeable within a few months.
