What is hair transplant?
Hair transplant is a medical surgery in which hair follicles are taken from another part of body (the donor site) to the bald part or the area getting bald (the recipient site). It takes place under local anesthesia in the doctors’ office and it is not only used for the male pattern baldness, but also for the mustache, beard and eyebrow and in females.
Hair Transplant Procedure
There are three types of hair transplant: Follicular Isolation Technique (FIT), Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). The last one is also known as Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS). The surgeon will choose one of these techniques to combine two to do the operation based on the patient’s condition and their medical history.
First the doctor cleans your scalp and injects some medicine to make the back of your head numb. FIT is a good choice for those who want to have short hair and keep it short. During FIT technique, the follicles are isolated in the source area and they are placed in the recipient site in form of tiny incisions. And how long will it take? FIT will take up to 10 hours. We will read about FUE in next part, but the main difference between FUE and FIT is the extraction tool used for removing the follicular unit graft.
In FUE, first they will shave the back of your scalp and hair follicles will be removed one by one. The area heals with small dots and your existing hair will cover it. Then the procedure will be similar. The grafts will be prepared and the doctor cleans and numbs the area, and then creates holes or slits using a needle. Each graft is placed delicately in one of the holes.
In FUSS, the doctor gets a 6 to 10 inch strip of skin from the back of head and sets it aside. Then she/he sews your scalp. Don’t worry; the hair around this area will soon hide it. After that, the team will divide that strip into 500 to 2000 tiny grafts, each of which has one or a few hairs. But what determines the number and type of graft? Actually they depend on your hair type, size of the area and your hair color.
Facial hair transplant
Many men nowadays choose hair transplant for beard or for mustache. Skin infection or disease, genetics or scarring can lead to hair loss in beard or mustache, therefore the person may choose facial hair transplant. Usually FIT and FUT are used for these kinds of transplants.
One of the main factors of facial beauty are eyebrows for sure. The eyebrows in some people are burned, plucked or scarred or affected by any genetics problems. Therefore, eyebrow transplant can be a good choice to recover them and have natural looking and permanent eyebrows. Again FUT and FIT are used for eyebrow transplant and the operation is done under local anesthesia. The good point is that there is no scar after this surgery and you will soon have a permanent result.
Hair transplant recovery
As your scalp will be so tender after hair transplant surgery, you may need to take painkillers for some days. You have to wear bandages over your scalp for 1 to 2 days. Some of the surgeons also prescribe antibiotics or anti-inflammatory medicine for you. Usually most of people go back to their daily life and work after 2 to 5 days.
The transplanted hair will fall out after 2 or 3 weeks after the operation. Be careful that you have to see new growth within a few months. Based on the reports, most of people see 60 percent of their new hair after 6 to 9 months. Also, some doctors prescribe hair growing drug for hair growth improvement.
Am I a good candidate for hair transplant?
Hair transplant is a good option not for all people. Read the following:
Suitable candidates for hair transplant surgery:

- Women who have a wide-spread hair loss pattern throughout their scalp

Does health insurance cover hair transplant?
Although many people believe that hair loss is so much effective on self-confidence and appearance, as it is not considered so life-threatening it is not usually covered by health insurance, unfortunately. So it is kind of considered a cosmetic surgery that is not necessary to continue your life; therefore insurance companies do not cover it.
