Hair transplant is a restorative procedure performed by surgeons in order to correct baldness usually in men. Males are generally more prone to hair loss than women and thus it calls for a transplant procedure. Just like an organ transplantation in which one organ from the donor is inserted into the body of a recipient a hair transplant procedure utilizes hair follicles instead of an organ.
The hair transplant procedure is carried out with the help of two techniques.
1. FUE – Follicular Unit Excision
2. FUT – Follicular Unit Transplantation
The cost of hair transplant depends from person to person as well as the surgeon. The location of recipient area, donor area, amount of transplantation, method of excision all-together decide the cost of the procedure.
If you are suffering from age related baldness, complete alopecia or baldness caused due to excessive hair loss then you can consider the treatment. The doctor will first assess the affected area as well as the donor area. If general donor area, that is, the back of the head is devoid of hair then other areas are assessed. Overall, the outcome of the procedure is assured with the aid of proper technique.
