Hair transplant is a surgical technique that involves moving of individual hair follicles from a part of the body known as the ‘donor site’ to a bald or balding part of the body called as ‘recipient site’. This is a minimally invasive procedure,in which hair graft that are genetically resistant to balding are transplanted to the bald scalp.With this technique, eye lashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair can be restored and accidental scars can be filled and surgical scars like face lift, or of previous hair transplants can also be corrected.
As natural hair growth occurs in a group of 1-4 hairs, thus the modern technology can harvest and transplant them in their natural grouping form of 1-4 hair follicular units. And this helps in mimicking a natural appearance of hair. Thus this procedure is known as FOLLICULAR UNIT TRANSPLANTATION (FUT).
