Hair transplantation is a surgical technique . It moves hair follicles from a part of the body. It is called the ‘donor site’ from where hair is taken. Where it used to be a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness which is a minimally invasive procedure. The grafts contain hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding. As we notice the back of the head is transplanted to the bald scalp.

Follicular Unit Hair Transplants (FUT)
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Both methods involve follicular transplant for the process. It means follicles are extracted from the donor area and transplanted into the recipient area.

In FUE, individual follicles are extracted from the donor area and the transformation process is done.The hair is transplanted to the recipient area one by one. It is also known as the strip method, a strip of hair follicles is taken out from the donor area in FUT. So, these were transplanted to the area with baldness.
