Hair transplant is a procedure done to overcome hair loss. Hair loss could occur due to various reasons like accidents, heredity, aging etc. Hair transplantation is the process where hair is extracted from the donor area and is transplanted to the balding area. Depending on the type of technique, it is divided broadly into two types: Follicular Unit Transplantation and Follicular Unit Extraction.
There are various methods by which hair can be harvested which have advantages and disadvantages of their own. They are as follows:
Strip Harvesting is a method where a strip of skin is taken from the back side of the head and planted in the good hair growth area. In this method each incision is planned so that intact hair follicles can be removed.
Follicular Unit Transplantation is another method where strip of skin along with hair follicles is taken from the back of the head and is planted in the balding area in a single session.
Follicular Unit Extraction is the process where the hair follicles called as grafts are transplanted into balding area one by one. This is a tiresome process for both the surgeon and the patient as a long duration of time is taken to complete the process.
Lastly, Robotic Hair Restoration process uses robotic hair restoration devices, along with cameras and robotic arms, to assist the hair transplant surgeon.
