Hair transplantation is an artistic and surgical method to regrow hair even on bald area. The hair from the donor which usually are back of the head, beard, chest, etc is implanted in the bald part of the head. These implanted hairs are permanent. The reason is that the hair of the back and side parts of the head usually does not fall and stays there lifelong. After about two weeks of getting an implant, the newly implanted hair starts to grow and after one year they begin to have natural growth hence they look like natural hair. One major advantage of this method is that these hairs are permanent. The area where hair is taken is called donor area.
Here there are methods to get the hair transplant in Mumbai:
- Strip Method
Firstly patient is given local anesthesia. After that, a strip of half an inch of the skin with tissues is removed from the donor area. The grafts are taken out and are implanted in the bald portion of the head. In a strip of half an inch, usually there can be up to two thousand and in a follicle, there are two to three hair roots. After implant, stitches are dissolved in the donor area itself. Donor area becomes normal after a few days. In the area where the hair is implanted, the bandages are wrapped around the head for one night, which can be removed in the clinic the next day or even the patient can remove himself. As far as the pain is concerned, there is no pain, though it can be a little uncomforting.
- FUE Method
In the Strip Method, where a strip is taken from the donor area, in FUE single follicles are removed first and then implanted with help of micro needles. The small holes are made to implant the grafts. A sitting takes 6 to 8 hours and in this period about 3000 grafts are implanted. There is no need to get admitted. According to the condition and the response of the patient, if required they can be called for a second sitting. The second sitting takes place after six months.
Using the FUE, the surgeon has now also been able to use the body's hair the chest, back, arms and legs. The hair of the body is permanent. Using these hairs in hair transplantation about 10000 grafts can be implanted. It can be done in many sessions during the year.

- Diabetes, Hyper tension, Metabolic disorders such as chronic illness
- If there is an electronic device like Pacemaker in body
- Allergy to certain drugs
- If taking any medicines for a particular disease
The problem is that normal hair of the other parts of your head can continue falling at the speed like they were initially. In spite of transplant, there is a need to continue certain medicines, so that the rest of the hair can be saved from falling or the speed at which they fall can be minimized. Transplantation is not possible in the condition where there is no healthy and thick hair in the donor area, thus it increases the chances of the failure of the surgery.
