A Hair Transplant is a surgical procedure that moves hair from a region of rich growth to a region of thin or no hair. The first hair transplant was done in 1939, Japan with single scalp hairs, in the decades that followed, physicians and surgeons have developed the “plug” technique where instead of single scalp hairs, tufts of hairs are transplanted.
There are two methods of transplantation the doctor chooses from – Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS) or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). In the FUSS method the surgeon removes a 6-10 inch strip of skin from the back of the head and sews the scalp closed. In the FUE procedure, the surgeon shaves the back of the head, then the doctor removes hair follicles one by one. The difference in both procedures is the method used in procuring healthy hair follicles from a region of rich hair growth.
Hair Transplants are only successful when used to restore hair if you are balding or thinning naturally or have lost hair due to an injury, since hair transplants are done with existing hair, they are not effective in treating widespread thinning and baldness, hair loss due to chemotherapy or medication or thick scalp scars from injuries.
