Hair Transplant – A long-lasting solution
FUE hair transplant is an advanced procedure of implanting individual hair follicles from a part of the body called the ‘donor site’ to a bald or balding area over the scalp known as the ‘recipient’ or ‘beneficiary’ site. Simply put, hair from one part of your body is taken and transferred to the area where you don’t have hair.
Hair transplant surgery is done by harvesting a group of hair or grafts called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant. Another method of hair harvesting is Strip Excision Harvesting, also called Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT). FUE has advantages over FUT such as no linear scar, wider donor area options, more safety, and faster recovery. A surgical procedure is done with minimum invasion, hair transplant can be performed for hair loss in both men and women. However, it is a procedure commonly used to treat male hair issues such as baldness,
Besides scalp hair, FUE transplantations are also effective in restoring beards and mustaches, as well as to fill up scars. At Rootz, we also offer hair transplants for women facing hair loss.

Hair Transplant Procedure
FUE Hair Transplant can be 3-4 hours of surgical operation depending on the extraction and implantation of the grafts.
The first step involves the trimming of hair.
Before the procedure begins, the surgeon using local anesthesia numbs the area where the hair is to be removed.
The doctor extracts bunches of hair roots 500 at a time using the right tool.
The extracted hairs are harvested and placed in a special solution to use for transplantation.
Once the desired follicles are extracted, the implanting at the bald area begins. The surgeon implants hair follicles directly into the area using an implanter tool.
The procedure is said to be complete once the right amount of follicles are placed over the bald patches.
Later, the implanted hair grows into natural hair for a lifetime.
