Male Hair Transplant

For men, nothing is more horrific than a sight of receding hair line. Most men are very self-conscious about losing their hair. It is seen as a sign of mortality and a threat to the confidence and often something, which they are not ready to talk about at any time. However the established fact that 2/3rd of the men around the world in their early 30s will start to see some hair thinning.

If you also fall in this category and thinning on top and going bald is really making you desperate for a treatment that can bring back the healthy locks then a hair transplant can help you bring back the fuller head of hair.  Hair transplants have been in vogue since the 1950s and the treatment procedures have come a long way from being a painful and length procedure. The results of hair transplant techniques used in India give the most natural looking results.  In India, more and more high profile male celebrities are embracing hair transplant procedures successfully.

The first thing is to talk to your doctor and find out how hair transplant works and if it will actually be a suitable option for you. Beware there are many less than optimum practices lurking around that try to hoodwink men by promising quick results for less price of hair transplants.  Thousands of men have already undergone successful hair transplants with highly successful results because they select the right hair transplant surgeon and clinic.

What is Male Pattern Hair loss?

Male pattern hair loss is the most common cause of seeking hair loss treatments in men in India.  The usually starts with a receding hair line that goes further up the scalp in an M pattern. The cause behind this the modified form of testosterone, the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which attached the hair follicles on scalp and causes them to shrink in size and the hair become shorter in length and lighter in colour. Slowly over time the hair growth stops completely. Male pattern baldness is generally limited to the front and top of the scalp; the hair follicles at the back and sides of the hair are immune to the bad effects of DHT.

Hair fall in men can also be because of other medical conditions such as alopecia areata, alopecia universalis, drugs, cancer, depression, heart problems, high blood pressure etc. In some cases men can lose hair from eyelashes, eyebrows, moustache, chest, and other parts of body. Sometimes hairstyles can also cause hair loss.

What is hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation in India is a simple aesthetic procedure that move the hair from the healthy part of the body to the thinning or bald parts. Top hair experts in India use hair transplant procedures to cover the thinning areas of hair on beard, eyebrow, and even chest areas.

Top hair transplant surgeons in India also use the body hair transplantation (BHT) technique to replace the balding areas on the scalp with beard hair. Since the hair is not susceptible to the hair loss process, the results of hair transplantation procedure are permanent and transplanted hair continue to grow for a lifetime.  Male hair transplant surgery in India is the only way to permanently restore hair to bald or thinning areas. 

Types of hair transplantation procedures

Male hair transplant is an outpatient procedure that uses local anaesthetic to numb the scalp. Depending on your expectations and budget you might need multiple sessions. There are two main kinds of male hair transplant surgeries in India

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) or Strip Surgery

In this type of male hair transplant procedures in India a small patch of skin with healthy hair follicles is harvested from the back of the scalp or other parts of the body, which the hair transplant surgeon will divide, into smaller units. The Very small incisions are made on the recipient site, the grafts are placed in the incisions, and the area is covered with gauge and bandages.

Follicular Unit extraction (FUE) or Direct Hair transplantation

FUE is the gold standard for hair transplantation in India.  This is a relatively painless technique and does not involve the use of scalpels i.e. no scarring. In FUE the hair transplant surgeon will extract the hair follicles directly and implant them one by one directly in the recipient area that needs to be covered.  Top hair surgeons in India take care to place the hair follicles in a particular direction, depth, and angle to ensure hundred percent natural results with maximum density. The new hair continues to grow throughout the life. Since the hair follicles don’t stay out of the skin for a long time, FUE increases the survival and growth of hair follicles translating to healthy and natural looking hair.  The Esthetic Clinics in India uses precise hair transplant tools such as Punch Hair Matic Hair Robot for micro grafting in FUE to make the hair transplant surgery faster, safer, and more reliable. FUE hair transplantation has lesser downtime than other hair transplant methods. Male hair transplant in India using FUE is suitable for men who have less area of baldness and need fewer number of grafts. 

The conventional FUE method requires the hair treatment experts to shave the entire scalp (the donor as well as recipient area). Best hair surgeons at The Esthetic Clinics, India use advanced FUE methods that do not require you to go completely bald. There is no reason to shave the areas where the grafts are being placed with the new techniques:

No share Follicular Unit Extraction Hair transplantation

In this type of innovative FUE technique the donor areas are completely untouched so that when the men go back to office next day nobody can make out they have had any procedure done. This type of FUE needs a particularly meticulous approach, which the best hair transplant surgeons are expert in.  This type of FUE takes longer time and therefore you need to be prepared to take two days off from work.

Partial Shave Follicular Unit Extraction Hair transplantation

In this type of FUE method top hair experts in India shave only the lower back of the donor area in such a way that it fades in the existing hair style. This enables them to take multiple grafts quickly and the shaved area can be covered easily by the hair above it so that the patient can join the mainstream life in few days.

By only trimming the recipient area, the hair transplant surgeon ensures that the existing hairs hide the tiny crusts where the transplants are placed and thus the results do not look unnatural.

Who can have a male hair transplantation?

The prime requirement for suitability of hair transplantation in India is to have enough donor hair available and the hair loss is not too extensive. The doctor will first asses the level of your hair loss and examine the condition of your scalp to determine if you are suitable for hair transplant procedure. Other criterion include

  • Your hair are not too fine , hair transplant surgeries work well with coarse, wavy hair
