Hair loss is an unpleasant experience irrespective of any age and gender. The major factor is hair split ends as they make hair vulnerable to lose. Split ends usually appear when hair and scalp conditions are not good and become brittle, dry, and frayed. Exposure to excessive use of chemicals and hair care techniques such as blow dryer, straightening, curling, and extreme weather conditions are the causal factors to it.
Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE hair transplant in Delhi is a procedure in which individual hair follicles are added one by one from the donor area with the help of the small microneedles and tiny punches around a hair follicle for extraction. FUE is considered a replacement of follicular unit transplantation (FUT), a traditional method. FUT included implanting an entire piece of the scalp or skin, whereas FUE targets with natural and permanent solution of balding or hair thinning. FUE hair transplant is a minimally invasive technique causing minimally visible scars and no requirement of stitches.
Data from clinical studies have revealed about 85-95% of the implanted grafts grow easily in the transplanted area. This data supports the high efficiency and success rate of the hair transplant procedure based on the customer’s satisfaction which is a critical aspect of the calculation. If the surgeon takes a detail-oriented approach, different techniques might increase the success rate to 95-95%.

1.hair transplant for me?
The ideal candidate for FUE hair transplant is the one having balding or hair thinning issues. They should have enough, and denser hair available in the backside of the scalp area which is needed as a donor for transplantation. Also any individuals requiring corrections or repairs from their previous transplant and individuals who have undergone FUT previously can opt for FUE due to the tight scalp.
FUE hair transplant does not include strict age criteria as the process involves grafting the large tuft of hair to restore the look and feel. The procedure generally depends on the severity of the hair loss from the scalp and available hair grafts in scalp and other body part(s) and tailored requirements. Hair transplantation surgery is suitable for all ages without any psychological or physical disabilities. However, the ideal age of undergoing the procedure is between 18 and 65 years which supports the data of higher success rate. Until teenage, it is advisable to understand the baldness pattern or its severity which could be due to multiple factors, and hence, some data also supports going for hair transplantation surgery after 25 years of age.
2. How do I prepare for an FUE hair transplant?
It is imperative to discuss your requirements and realistic goals with your doctor. Information on side effects along with various do’s, and don’ts is important to understand before going under the needle.
3. What should I not do before a hair transplant?
- Avoid smoking at least 72 hours before
- Avoid consuming alcohol at least 3 days before
- Do not take any blood thinners, vitamin supplements, aspirin at least 1 weeks before
- Do not take any haircut or hairstyle.
- Clean and wash your hair at least 2 days before
- Follow any prerequisite medicine or laboratory tests prescribed by your doctor or surgeon.
4. What happens during a Hair Transplant Procedure?
FUE hair transplant is a restoration procedure executed to implant more hair to an area(s) that is affected due to thinning or balding. The procedure takes or plucks the hair from the donor area like the back of the scalp and transfers it to a hairless portion of the area(s) where it is required. Apart from the hair on the head, the procedure can also be used to create a beard, brows or lashes. In FUE, an entire graft of hair can be taken from the area of the back of your head or maybe other parts of the body, depending on the thickness and density. The body part is sterilized from where the hair will be removed. In FUE, hundreds or thousands of punch incisions are made on the back of the head from where the hair follicles are directly extracted. Once implanted, the head will stay covered with gauze and bandages. Three to four sessions are required to complete the procedure to achieve the personalized requirement of covering the area.
5. How long do FUE transplants last?
In FUE hair transplant, hair grafts are taken from the back of the scalp which is considered a safe zone. Hair grafts which are present in safe zones generally don’t go away with age. However, if these are going away, they will go away last in comparison to front, mid or vertex hair. A trained hair transplant surgeon will always take care of your donor area and he will take out only those grafts from the donor area whose survival is looking good.
6. Do I need another hair transplant?
After the first FUE transplant, post-operative procedures would include non-surgical hair loss treatments that help combat hair loss and maintain the look. However, it might happen that you are still losing hair from other areas of your scalp like mid scalp and crown area of scalp. In that case, a second session of hair transplant can be done with the help of available hair grafts from the back of the scalp and beard and body. Sometimes patients can opt for second hair transplant to increase the density and for extra volume.
Hair loss is the primary factor for people choosing hair transplants. FUE is a quick recovery technique since it is minimally invasive. However, swelling and discomfort may continue for 3 days. It is imperative to follow post-operative care properly to achieve desired outcomes. The transplanted hair will begin growing back in around 3 to 4 months and a good result will be observed in 6-8 months.Dermalife is the best and leading hair transplant clinic in Delhi.
