Surgical Hair Restoration in Mohali

Surgical Hair restoration treatment is the process of finding areas of your scalp where the hair is thinning and adding hair to those areas. Hair loss doctors will then, strand by strand, naturally, restore your hair to a volume and density that let you reclaim the look and feel of your natural hair.

Surgical Hair Treatment

 

Surgical hair restoration involves removing hair follicles from a donor site, which is a section of the scalp or sometimes another part of the body, and placing them at the recipient site, which is the part of the scalp that is bald or balding. This process is typically performed on men to combat male pattern baldness.

Types of Surgical Hair Transplants

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is the recommended surgical hair replacement choice amongst hair transplant patients because it has a higher success rate. It is a rather invasive procedure, however, that involves taking one lineal strip to produce 2,000 or more tiny hair follicles that consist of about 2-3 hairs each and then relocating it to the affected area. Commonly referred to as the “strip” method of hair treatment, the side effects often involve swelling, bleeding, and red patchiness.

 

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

Unlike FUT, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a detailed procedure that requires meticulous care in practice. Essentially, each hair strand is extracted one by one from a part of the scalp where hair growth is flourishing—usually the crown or back of the head—and then carefully repositioned in the area where hair growth is lacking. Much like FUT, common side effects include swelling and redness for the first couple of days. 

 

Scalp Reduction

Out of the three surgical hair replacement procedures, scalp reduction is arguably the most unpopular choice because of the nature of the procedure itself. However, it is one of the earliest, known methods of surgical hair treatment in Toronto and other parts of the world. This method is almost akin to the process of scalping in the sense that it involves completely removing the areas of the scalp that cannot grow hair on their own and then discarding them completely. Then, the remaining skin on the scalp is stretched over the areas with the missing skin.
