How Hair Transplant Surgery Performed:

  1. Hairline Design: First of all, the hairline design is drafted by the skilled Surgeon in the scalp area where hair is needed to be implanted. The hairline design is a complete artistic work that requires a specific set of artistic skills and knowledge of the Surgeon that is decided by the patient’s facial profile, gender, age and the last, but not least, their wish or expectations for a particular hairstyle. It is a concerning job of the surgery that must be performed by the proficient Surgeon.
  2. Slit Making:  The slit making process should be performed with the defined angle and direction for giving the natural looking graft placement. The proper and direction for graft placement should be defined earlier and later a Surgeon implants the graft to fulfill the goal of an aesthetic hair restoration surgery. The slit making process is a decision making steps in the restoration procedure that allows a Surgeon to achieve the aesthetic result.
  3. Hair follicles/Graft Extraction: This is the major surgical job either performed by the strip harvesting technique (FUT) or punches grafting (FUE) to extract the desired amount of graft in the view of covering the bald area followed by the aesthetic implantation. The extraction of graft has a defined motto that explains the strength of the procedure. The Surgeon focuses on maximum extraction in order to give a dense-packed result or covering the greater NW class of baldness and hence an expert Surgeon focuses on the FUT technique rather than the FUE.
  4. The Graft Dissection: The graft dissection process must be performed under high-magnification of microscopes to get the viable follicular units that are extracted from the strip. The dissection process is a precise job done by the proficient and skilled technicians because even a minute difference or tiny graft damage can alter the expected result. Each graft has a role in the procedure if a patient wishes for the high-density result. The dissection process and during the dissection, what point to be followed both are important. However, it is advisable to hold the graft from the tip side in order to prevent them from damage and save the root portion by holding them in saline water until the implantation step didn’t initiate.
  5. The Graft implantation: The graft implantation step is one of the most determinative processes that must be performed by the skilled hand of a plastic & Cosmetic Surgeon. The implantation of follicular unit/graft should follow the irregular or zigzag pattern to look natural. The other point to be considered while placement that only the slim or thin graft should be selected for the frontal hairline design to give the undetectable and natural hair transplant result.

How Hair Transplant is helpful in Hair Loss/Baldness:
