The area of back of the scalp, occiput area is called as “Donor area”. This area is a permanent zone of healthy hair follicles which usually doesn’t fall in cases of Male pattern Hair loss. This area is usually not susceptible to the action of DHT hence follicle on this area stays longer and are healthy.

However, frontal, temporal [ side corner], Mid scalp and crown areas of scalp are more susceptible to the action of DHT hormone and hence hair thinning in male pattern hair loss is usually seen here. This area of scalp is called “Recipient Area”, where we transplant the grafts from back of the scalp “Donor Area”.

As we have mentioned before, Hair transplant is a method of hair redistribution of your existing hair follicles, as we are born with limited number of hair follicles and with age and due to genetic tendencies, we tend to lose them. There is no other way to grow new hair follicles on the bald scalp, hence Hair transplant is the best way to go.

What are the different techniques of doing hair transplant?

Hair transplant is done by two methods, called “FUE” and “FUT”.

“FUE” stands for “Follicular unit extraction”. This is the most advanced and commonly used technique of Hair transplant, where Hair follicles from back of the scalp [ Donor area] are taken one by one and transplanted on the frontal areas of Scalp.

This method of hair transplant gives faster healing of transplanted area and donor area of scalp after surgery with minimal downtime.

This method also allows minimal handling of the removed grafts and hence leads to its best survival after surgery.

However, the other technique of hair transplant is called as FUT, which stands for Follicular unit transplant. This a older technique of hair transplant, where the Hair follicle strip is removed from the back of the scalp and then individual follicles are separated. The healing time involved in this procedure is more as compared to FUE and the body out time of removed hair follicles is also more. This leads to poor survival rate of the transplanted hair after surgery.

Who are the ideal candidates for hair transplant?

A person with the male pattern hair loss, with the frontal hair line recession, temporal angle recession along with crown and mid scalp thinning can think of hair transplant after through investigation and examination of donor area. The ideal age for hair transplant is after 25.

But, it is very important to understand that, only hair transplant can not solve the problem of hair thinning of baldness. A person with good amount of existing hair should preserve their existing hair with topical minoxidil and oral finasteride and certain non-surgical treatments like Mesotherapy and PRP. These treatments also help to preserve and maintain the results of Hair transplant in long run.

A prechecks before hair transplant surgery is must to understand whether person is eligible to go for hair transplant or not.
