Frequently Asked Questions
What is hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation is really about relocating (transplanting) the bald resistant hair follicles from the back (donor area) of the head to the balding areas on the top of the head.
This process works for a lifetime and permanent because the hair follicles taken from the back of the head are genetically resistant to baldness, regardless of where they are relocated to.
Are the results permanent?
Absolutely, it is permanent. It is just like a normal hair, which requires no extra maintenance. Thus, you get completely natural, growing hair that is permanent and youthful look. More over, you can cut, color and style the new growing hair.
Does the hair transplant procedure hurt or painfull?
Hair transplantation is not painful. Patients are given local anesthesia in the donor and recipient areas. There will be no feel of pain or discomfort during the surgery. We ask patient to bring their favorite music / movie to watch during the procedure and enjoy the time.
How is hair transplantation done?
In the FUE method, micro-surgical punch is use to extract the follicle from the donor area (back side of head) then using micro-surgical needle the follicles are placed in a systematic manner to the recipient area (bald area).

What most recommend FUE than Strip method?
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and strip method are different procedures, but the final result is exactly the same. The placement of the grafts (hair) and the final aesthetic look of the patient is also same. The only difference is in the removal of the grafts – in FUE grafts are removed one by one or in small groups whereas in strip method, an entire strip of hair is removed.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and strip method procedures produce excellent results. The benefits are you can move more hair per procedure at a lower cost and the outcome is remarkable. But in strip method you are left with a linear scar in the donor site and quite blood loss.
How many grafts will be required in my case?
The requirement of grafts analysis is depends on how big your balding area is and the density of hair in your donor area (back of the scalp).
Please use the Graft/Hair Calculator to check the imaginary graft requirement according to the density in every inch square.
You can also Upload Photos of the bald area, and our experts with reply you with graft assessment and approximate cost.
What is the recovery/healing time?
With today’s very refined micro hair transplantation procedure the incisions are very small and less invasive than past procedures. This results in more rapid healing. Most patients feel fine within a day or two following surgery, although some numbness and mild soreness can be expected for several days following surgery.
How long does the hair transplantation procedure take?
Hair transplantation is a one day procedure. In very rare cases we prefers two to three session according to the size of the baldness. Please check what really happens on the day of surgery.
How soon can I get back to work after hair transplantation?
You can easily resume work on the next day. No hassles of taking a long leave from your work. This adds to the convenience of the procedure.
When will my newly transplanted hair start to grow?
Normally it takes between three to five months following surgery before the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow new hair. The transplanted hair grows in very thin initially and gradually grows thicker and fuller over time. After one year a patient’s transplanted hair will be fully mature and will continue to grow for a life time.
