Baldness occurs when one experiences excessive hair loss. Baldness is mostly seen in men; however, some females also suffer from this problem. There are many reasons for hair loss with the hereditary condition being the most common. Other reasons include stress, side effects of some medicines, certain hair treatments, unhealthy diet and illness among others. For people suffering from hair loss, there is no reason to worry.Max Health Hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to perform hair transplant with utmost precision and ensure you a head full of hair.

A hair transplant is a medical procedure performed by a qualified dermatologist. Baldness usually occurs in the middle or top of the head. Thus, the procedure involves taking hair from the side or back of the head and transplanting them on the part that lacks hair.

A hair transplant can be a painful procedure therefore the patient is administered local anesthesia prior to the surgery. The doctors at Max Health begin the procedure by first thoroughly cleaning the scalp for better results. There are basically two methods for hair transplant-Follicular Unit transplantation (FUT) and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).

The Follicular Unit transplantation, which is also known as Follicular Unit Strip Surgery, is a procedure where the surgeon with the aid of a medical instrument removes a strip of skin, which is between 6 and 10 inches, from the back of the head. Following this, the part of the head from where the skin is removed is stitched. By using a scalpel, the skin that has been removed from the scalp is separated into between 500 to 2000 smaller pieces known as grafts and some of these may comprise only one or a few hair. Small punctures are made to make space for new hair. Next, the medical team undertakes the process of grafting in which the grafts are placed into the holes. The number of grafts depends on a variety of factors like the type and quality of hair, color, the size of the area where the transplantation has to take place among others.

The Follicular Unit Extraction method involves the medical team completely shaving off each and every hair from the back of the person’s head. From here the medical team removes the follicles. Similar to the Follicular Unit Transplantation, the FUE also involves the placing of grafts into the small holes made in the scalp by the medical team. Once the procedure has been completed, the doctors cover the area where the surgery has taken place with bandages.

Normally, the entire hair transplant procedure takes a few hours to complete. However, in certain situations, it may also take a couple of days. Usually, the doctors allow the patient to return home on the same day. There is also no need to take a long break from work as you can get back to the office within a week. The patient is prescribed pain relief medications, antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medicines post the procedure. If you find hair falling out some two to three weeks after the surgery, there is nothing to be alarmed about. This is normal as new hair will begin to grow only after a few months. Our experts at CARE ensure that the patient doesn’t feel any discomfort both prior and post the transplant.
Though hair transplant is the best way to get your hair back but it is not a good option for everyone. People who benefit from hair transplant include men who are suffering from male pattern baldness or women whose hair are thinning. Even people who have suffered from a scalp injury or burns may find hair transplant an effective solution. Amongst those for whom hair translation will not be effective include people who are losing hair because of medications or are lacking enough hair on the back or sides of the head.
There are several side effects associated with hair transplant but they are usually not serious and go away within a few days or weeks. Some of these include infections, scarring, swelling of the scalp, itching, forming of the crust on the part from where the hair was either removed or placed, people may also experience a loss of transplanted hair, but this is a temporary phenomenon among others.


Certain precautions need to be taken after undergoing hair transplantation.

  1. After the hair transplant is done, the scalp will be swollen. Therefore it is not to be exposed to direct sunlight.
  2. There will be some itching post-surgery. It is advisable to not rub or scratch the areas where itching takes place as this will damage the grafts that have been transplanted.
  3. Drinking or smoking must be avoided for a few days after the surgery has been performed.
  4. For a week after the surgery, do not indulge in heavy exercises or sports. After about 10 days you can indulge in light exercises.
  5. Excessive sweating can cause damage or lead to infections; therefore activity that causes sweating must be avoided.
  6. Do not immediately wash your hair and do not put on any caps without the advice of your doctor.
