Hair Transplant

Hair Transplant in Delhi

At Skinalaya Clinic, we can provide you with the best hair transplant in Delhi with minimal complications and successful results. Below is everything you need to know about hair transplant treatment.


What do you mean by a Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is a method where a dermatological or plastic surgeon moves hair to a bald site of your head. The hair is generally moved from the side or back of your head to the top or front of your head.

Hair transplant is typically performed under local anaesthesia in a medical office.

Pattern baldness leads to the majority of hair loss. It comes down to genetics. The other cases are due to a number of factors such as:

  • Diet
  • Stress
  • Illness
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Medications

There are 2 kinds of hair transplant processes as follows:

  • Micrografts
    Micrografts have 1-2 hairs in each graft.
  • Slit grafts
    Slit grafts have 4-10 hairs in each graft as per the extent of coverage needed.

Are you a suitable candidate for a Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant can promote your appearance which can boost your self-confidence. Ideal candidates for a hair transplant are as follows:

  • Men with male pattern baldness
  • Women with thinning hair
  • Anybody who has lost some hair from a scalp injury or burn

A hair transplant is not a good option for the following cases:

  • Women having a widespread pattern of hair loss throughout their scalp
  • People who do not have sufficient donor hair areas from which to remove hair for transplantation
  • Individuals who develop keloid scars (thick, fibrous scars) due to surgery or injury
  • Individuals whose hair loss is because of medication such as chemotherapy

What is the procedure of Hair Transplant Treatment?

The surgeon minutely cleans the scalp. Using local anaesthesia, he'd then use a small needle for numbing a part of your head.

Two major methods are used for obtaining follicles for transplantation: FUE and FUT.


FUE (follicular unit extraction)

FUE involves cutting out your hair follicles directly from the back of your head through multiple tiny punch incisions. The following steps are taken in this procedure:

  • With a needle or blade, the surgeon creates tiny holes in the part of your scalp receiving the hair transplant. Then he carefully places hairs in these holes.
  • During a treatment session, the surgeon might transplant hundreds to thousands of hairs, depending on the extent of the bald area to be covered.
  • After grafting, bandages or gauze would cover the scalp for a few days.

FUT (follicular unit transplantation)

  • The surgeon employs a scalpel for cutting out a graft of your scalp skin from the rear of your head. The incision typically stretches for many inches.
  • Then the incision is sewed with stitches.
  • Then the surgeon separates the removed part of your scalp into tiny sections using a sharp surgical knife and magnifying lens. After implantation, these sections would help in achieving natural-appearing hair growth.

A treatment session may take 4 hours or more. The stitches would be removed about 10 days after treatment.

You may need up to 3-4 sessions for achieving the full head of hair you want. Sessions take place many months apart for allowing each transplant to fully cure.


Recovery from a Hair Transplant

After hair transplant surgery, the scalp might be sore and you might require to have medications such as:

  • Pain medications
  • Antibiotics for reducing the risk of infection
  • Anti-inflammatory medications for keeping down your swelling

Most patients can retrieve work many days after surgery.

You would commonly find the transplanted hair shedding 2-3 weeks after the procedure. This makes way for new hair to grow. Most people would find a certain amount of new hair growth about 8-12 months after transplant.

Several doctors prescribe the hair growth drug, finasteride (Propecia) or minoxidil (Rogaine) for improving hair growth. These drugs also help in slowing down or stopping future hair loss.


What are the complications from a Hair Transplant?

The side effects associated with a hair transplant are generally minor. They clean up within a few weeks.

Side effects from a hair transplant can include:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Swelling of your scalp
  • Bruising around your eyes
  • A crust on the sites of the scalp where hair has been implanted or removed
  • A lack of sensation or numbness in the treated sites of your scalp
  • Itching
  • Infection or inflammation of the hair follicles that is known as folliculitis
  • Shock loss. i.e., a typically temporary but sudden loss of the transplanted hair
  • Tufts of hair appearing unnatural

Typically, if you have received a hair transplant, the hair will continue to grow in the transplanted sites of your scalp.

The new hair can seem more or less dense based on:

  • Scalp laxity (looseness of scalp skin)
  • Follicle density in the transplanted area
  • Hair quality or calibre
  • Hair curl
