What is a hair transplant?

During the hair transplant, the surgeons transfer the hair follicles from the back or the side of your head to the balding area.

These procedures are typically performed in local anaesthesia and take several hours, depending on the size of the thinning areas to be covered.

It is a popular solution for patients affected by a receding hairline, balding crown, or male pattern baldness. This treatment can restore growth with natural, seamless results.

Does hair transplant work?

Yes, hair transplants do work, and they can restore your hair with permanent results.

Follicles growing at the back are not sensitive to the DHT hormone, so they are unaffected by male hair loss.

During hair restoration surgeries, these follicles are moved to the bald or thinning areas to improve the density.

As they will remain resistant to DHT, they will continue to grow naturally.

Modern techniques available today also minimize trauma to the scalp and grafts, leading to success rates of 90-95%.

2 types of hair transplant

There are 2 main hair transplant techniques available that use different methods to extract the hair follicles.

  • FUT hair transplant method: This involves removing a longer piece from the scalp at the donor area. The surgeon dissects the skin into follicular units and implants them into the recipient area. They close the incision with stitches: the FUT leaves a horizontal scar on the donor area.
  • FUE hair transplant method: The surgeon harvests the follicles one by one using a special micropunch. While it does not leave a large, linear scar on the back of the head, it takes longer than an FUT surgery.
FUT, FUE and combined methods

As they offer quicker recovery and minimal scarring, recent years saw an increase in the popularity of FUE procedures.

The 2020 practice census of the ISHRS found that the vast majority of patients prefer this hair transplantation technique.

6 advantages of hair transplantation

  1. Aesthetic change
    By far the biggest advantage of a hair transplant is the aesthetic change patients experience. These procedures can help you regain your youthful appearance and self-esteem.
  2. Increased confidence
    Feeling good about your appearance will improve your self-esteem and increase your confidence.
  3. Natural look
    Hair transplant uses your own hair, so the result will look and feel natural. During the implantation, the surgeon will mimic the natural pattern and density of your hair to achieve full, seamless result.
  4. Permanent result
    Hair implants provide life-long results. The transplanted follicles will not be affected by hormones causing male pattern baldness, and wil continue to grow in their new place.
  5. Cost effective
    The hair restoration surgery is a one-time expense for a lasting change. While alternative hair loss treatments are cheaper, they will remain a recurring expense, potentially for years.
  6. Simple, low-risk procedure
    Modern techniques allow you to restore the density of your hair in a 1-day surgery. While success rates are high, these minimally invasive procedures have low risk of complications, and mainly temporary side effects.

Who is a good candidate?

Hair surgeries offer truly transformative, confidence-boosting results for patients of all ages:

age of hair transplant patients

Instead of your age, your medical history and the characteristics of your hair loss will determine if the surgery is the right solution for you.

In general, you may be an ideal candidate for the procedure if:

  • Your hair loss reached at least Stage 2 on the Norwood Scale
  • You have been experiencing hair loss for more than 3 years
  • Your hair loss pattern has stabilised
  • Your hair at the back and sides of the head is dense enough to allow the extraction

How many grafts will you need to be implanted?

The most important factor that will affect the price is the scope of the surgery.

The extent of hair loss, and the size of the thinning area will determine the number of grafts you need:

Doctors will also consider the quality of your hair, and the existing density in the area you would like to fill up.

Hair transplant procedure: 8 key stages

Hair transplants are minor surgeries carried out under local anaesthetic and are considered minimally invasive. 

Here is what you can expect on the day of the surgery:

  • Your hair will be cut short so the surgeon can see everything precisely.
  • The surgical sites will be cleaned and disinfected.
  • The surgeon will administer local anaesthesia to numb the donor area.
  • The hair follicles will be removed from the back and sides of the head.
  • The assistants will clean the follicles and prepare them for implantation.
  • The surgeon will numb the top of scalp. Then, they prepare the tiny incisions on the recipient area.
  • Then, they will implant the new follicles.
  • The surgeon will clean the surgical sites again and put a bandage on the donor area.

The surgeries usually take 6-8 hours to complete, depending on how many hairs you need to be transplanted.

Typically, patients have 2000-3000 grafts implanted in a single session. In case your hair loss continues to progress, you might need a follow-up procedure.

most patienthave 2-3000 grafts implanted in a single hair restoration procedure

While there are individual differences, most follow-up sessions are smaller treatments with fewer than 2000 follicles.

Recovery process after the surgery

Recovery after your hair transplant will be quick.

As these are minimally invasive, outpatient procedures, you can return home on the same day or the day after.

While each clinic has slightly different aftercare instructions, your recovery after the hair transplant will likely go as follows:

  • Day 0: Remove bandages before you go to bed.
  • Day 1: Start using saline spray.
  • Day 2-4: Return to work.
  • Day 7: Wash your hair gently.
  • Day 14: Scalp must be free of scabs.
  • After 3 weeks: Implanted hairs start to fall out.
  • After 3 months: New growth starts.
  • After 6 months: Visible improvement in the density.
  • After 12-15 months: Result is complete.

Hair transplantation side effects

Modern hair restoration is safe and effective when carried out by a trained and experienced surgeon. 

However, they are surgical procedures nonetheless, and as such, even a successful hair transplant has potential side effects.

You may experience some soreness in your scalp following your treatment. A clinic may advise you to take medications to:

  • combat infections
  • reduce swelling after hair transplant
  • reduce pain after treatment

Luckily, most side effects are short term, causing a minor discomfort in the first few days after the surgery.

The potential side effects are:

  • hair transplant scars
  • scabbing
  • itching and swelling of the scalp
  • bleeding on the donor area

What are the long-term results?

Your hair should keep growing as normal following an implantation. But the density of the hair can differ due to:

  • The quality of the hair
  • The hair’s shape (e.g., wavy, curly)
  • The looseness of the skin on the scalp (scalp laxity)
  • The number of follicles in the treatment area

The only way to effectively restore the density on the bald or thinning areas is hair transplantation. It is important to choose the best method to achieve the best hair transplantation results.

These procedures will not stop the hair loss, and you may need follow-up treatments in the long run. However, carried out by qualified surgeons, modern methods offer lasting results and high success rates.
