Types of Hair Transplants

There are a few types of hair transplant methods that are used, some of them are listed below.

 1. FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Hair Transplant

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Hair Transplant

Follicular Unit Extraction is a method where individual hair follicles from your skin are extracted and moved to the bald area of the scalp. Fue is one of the less painful methods of hair transplant. Fue is done in several sessions for 2 to 4 hours which goes around a few days or sometimes there can be a mega session where the procedure takes around 12 hours to get done.

A manual transplant is done by the physician individually using a handheld device.

A robotic transplant is done by the robot and is guided by the physician with absolute accuracy.

2. FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)

Follicular hair transplantation is a procedure where a thin strip of skin is removed after which the individual follicles are harvested from that piece and placed onto the bald region. During the treatment, you will be given a local anesthetic to make the procedure comfortable and painless.

The surgery procedure will take about 4 to 12 hours. The hair will grow back after 4 months and will continue to grow thicker as time goes by, says dr. Manas jain.

3. Direct Hair Transplant

Direct hair transplantation is an advanced method of Fue, in which the surgeon uses a microsurgical tool to extract and implant the hair follicles onto the bald region of the recipient. The DHI device that’s used for the procedure is called the Choi implanter

Candidates for hair transplant

Getting a hair transplant is not an easy decision to make, there are certain things to understand before opting for a hair transplant, says Dr. Manas Jain.

You must know that a hair transplant is not the absolute solution for hair loss, hair transplant will not always result in a positive result, for e.g.; sometimes the hair transplant might not be successful and thus completely lose all of the remaining hair too.

The best candidates for hair transplant are:

  • If you have been balding for a long time and are willing to get a younger appearance for    themselves
  • If you have a constant pattern of balding
  • Hair loss as a result of some preceding burns or scalp injuries
  • If you are suffering from recent hair loss


The takeaway is that while hair loss problems can happen for various reasons, you can still treat them through the available treatments at affordable rates. You no longer need to worry about balding as the required services are readily available and easily accessible.
