What is a hair transplant? Are there any side effects of hair transplant? Such questions always arise when in our minds. Hair transplant is basically a surgery of removing hair follicles from the ‘donor site’ and transplanted on the ‘recipient site’. It is done using two methods. The most common side effect which is unavoidable is scarring. Other side effects one may face are bleeding, scalp pain, itching, swelling and infections like crust or pus around the surgical sites.
There are 2 types of hair transplant:-
- FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation): FUT method involves taking a strip of skin with hair follicles, mainly from the back of the head where hair is naturally fuller and less prone to balding. From the skin, small groups of tissue containing hair follicles are separated and prepared for transplantation. Tiny individual holes are made in the recipient site where one is experiencing baldness or thinning of hair. The prepared grafts are then individually placed into the recipient site.
Both the methods are effective in restoring thicker, natural-looking hair. Each method has its own set of benefits.
