    The hair transplant procedure involves placing new hair on bald and thinning areas of the scalp. Itís also known as hair restoration or hair replacement, and itís normally reserved for those who have exhausted all other options for hair loss treatment. To perform a hair transplant, a dermatologist or plastic surgeon should be consulted (healthcare professionals specializing in reconstructive surgery or reconstructive medicine).

    The procedure of Hair Transplant
    A surgeon uses a tiny needle to numb an area of your head with a local anesthetic after thoroughly cleaning your scalp.

    There are two methods FUT and FUE that are used for harvesting follicles for transplantation.

    Transplantation of individual hair follicles is known as follicular unit transplantation (FUT).



    To remove the hair, a surgeon will use a scalpel to cut a strip of the scalp skin from the back of the head. This incision is about half an inch long.
    Stitches are used to seal the wound.
    The surgeon divides the resected scalp piece into small pieces with the help of a magnifying lens and a sharp surgical knife. When implanted, these pieces help grow hair that looks natural.
    Hair follicles are extracted directly from the back of the head using hundreds to thousands of microscopic punch incisions in follicular unit extraction (FUE).
    During the hair transplantation, the surgeon cuts tiny holes in your scalp using a blade or a needle. These holes are then filled with hairs very gently.
    The surgeon may perform hundreds or thousands of hair transplants in one session.
    Your scalp will be covered with grafts, gauze, or bandages for a few days.


    A hair transplant can take 3 to 4 hours to complete. Your stitches will be removed ten days following surgery.

    Three or four treatments may be required to achieve your desired full head of hair. Patients often schedule their sessions many months apart to allow the transplants to fully heal.

    Procedure and Recovery after Hair Transplant
    The majority of hair transplant surgeries are outpatient procedures, meaning you can go home the same day. The length of your recuperation will be determined by the type of transplant you received. You may be able to do the following in the days following surgery:

    On day 1, Take off the bandages.
    Wash your hair on the second day.
    On days 3Ė5, begin light activities and return to work.
    After ten days, take out the stitches.
    Return to exercise or sports after 3 weeks.

    Default Procedure and recovery of hair transplant

    Hair transplant is a surgical procedure that involves the transplantation of hair follicles from the donor area to the recipient area, typically the scalp. The procedure aims to restore hair growth in areas affected by hair loss or thinning. Understanding the recovery process and the procedure itself is crucial for individuals considering a hair transplant.

    During the hair transplant in Delhi, the surgeon will administer local anesthesia to numb the scalp. The chosen technique, either Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), will determine the specifics of the procedure. In FUE, individual hair follicles are extracted and implanted, while FUT involves removing a strip of skin and dissecting it into grafts.

    Post-surgery, it is normal to experience some discomfort, swelling, and redness in the treated areas. The surgeon may prescribe pain medications and antibiotics to manage these symptoms and prevent infection. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities, direct sun exposure, and excessive touching or scratching of the scalp during the initial recovery period.

    The transplanted hair follicles will go through a shedding phase within the first few weeks. However, this is a temporary process, and new hair growth will start within a few months. It typically takes around 6 to 12 months for the transplanted hair to grow fully and achieve the desired results.

    It is important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by the surgeon, including proper care and maintenance of the scalp, as well as attending scheduled follow-up visits. The recovery period and the timeline for visible results may vary from person to person, depending on factors such as individual healing abilities and the extent of the transplant.

    In conclusion, hair transplant recovery involves a temporary period of discomfort and swelling, followed by the shedding of transplanted hair and subsequent growth. Adhering to post-operative instructions and having realistic expectations regarding the timeline for visible results are key to a successful recovery and satisfactory outcome.
