Hair Transplantation Techniques

1) Punch grafting: It is an outdated method and not much used today. It involves the removal of skin from the scalp where hair follicle plugs are set up. It presents an artificial appearance.

2) Hair grafts: Here, grafts using a single hair fiber are used. These give a superior appearance.

3) Mini grafting/ Micro grafting: In this method, very small grafts containing 3-4 hair are placed at the back of the hairline to provide a progressively budding hair mass.

4) FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation): This is an extensively used method where follicles containing 1-4 hair are transferred. These follicles also contain oil glands and nerves. Using a very high magnification, the hair grafts are dissected from the back of the head and the donor area is closed by a stitch less technique. Approximately 4000-5000 grafts can be replaced in a single day.

5) Micro follicular Hair Transplant Procedure: In this process, a thin strip of hair bearing skin is dislodged from the back of the head. This site is unaltered by the hormones responsible for the baldness. This strip is skillfully separated into different follicular units. Now the separated grafts or portions are transplanted at the site of baldness by the surgeon. This is a very popular method.
