Hair Transplant EN
Hair transplantation is one of the methods of superficial skin surgery. The doctor will transfer the hair root from an area where the hair is strong, such as the occiput or side of the head, to the area with hair problems to permanently grow hair on the areas. The hair problems are such as thinning hair or baldness, the receding hairline, and mid-scalp thinning area. Therefore, it is a surgery that must be performed by a specialist doctor at a hair transplantation clinic only.
Is the hair transplant surgery really effective?
Hair transplant surgery is the best permanent hair transplantation method to solve hair problems. It is an effective treatment of thinning hair because it is a way to transfer the hair follicle from an area with less hormonally influenced for hairloss, to an area more hormonally influenced for replacement. The transplanted hair roots are replanted, therefore they are able to grow and persist permanently, giving natural hair transplant results. It also has fewer risks or side effects compared to other hair transplant methods such as taking medicines or using hair transplant products, which results are unpredictable for each person.
Who is suitable for hair transplant surgery?

What are the differences between each method of hair transplantation?
In fact, the method of hair transplantation with the FUE hair transplantation technique that uses the hair follicle cell penetration method and the FUT hair transplant technique which involves a superficial incision in the scalp, both produce similar results in permanent hair transplantation. However, there may be some differences depending on the needs and hair problems of each individual as well. Before choosing a hair transplantation surgery technique, you should consult a dermatologist or plastic surgeon specializing in hair transplantation to assess individual suitability. To get the right treatment of hair transplantation, assessing the cause, age, quality of the hair and severity are necessary before the hair transplant process begins.
Types of hair transplant surgery
FUT hair transplant surgery involves the doctor taking out the hair graft from areas with strong hair grafts. The surgery will be performed with a superficial incision of the scalp along the occipital area. Then, the hair follicle cells were isolated under microscopes, getting the smallest hair root unit before transplanting the hair in the desired area. This is different from the FUE hair transplant technique as the latter technique uses a special tool with a very small piercing to penetrate the hair follicle cells, making a small hole scattered over the head and the wounds are invisible.
Surgery and recovery period
เThe FUT hair transplantation technique requires a surgery along the occipital area, resulting in a wound that is somewhat longer than the wounds from the operation of FUE hair transplantation technique that uses a small punch, which leaves a smaller wound all over the head. Therefore, after FUT hair transplantation, recovery time is longer, and patients who receive the FUT surgery should leave about 2 centimeters hair long in order to hide the surgical wound.
Number of hair grafts for hair transplantation
The FUT technique is a hair transplant surgery that allows surgeon to get a large number of strong hair grafts, because the technique is considered a standard hair transplantation method that results in hair follicle cells that are less likely to be damaged or weakened, when compared to the FUE hair transplant technique.
How much does hair transplant surgery cost?
The cost of permanent hair transplant surgery varies in each individual case, or according to the severity of the condition. However, when compared to taking medicines or using hair growth products that take a long time to see results or the outcome may be unpredictable, permanent hair transplants are worthwhile and results are more evident as well.
