Surgical hair transplantation involves harvesting healthy hair follicles and transplanting them to another area where the follicles are no longer viable. A "graft" is the standard term for a strip of skin containing hair. Grafts can be taken from anywhere on the body, but they are typically selected from the occipital scalp (the donor zone, found on the posterior scalp) due to the high sustainability of that region. Technology, tools, and surgical approaches determine the size and shape of the graft.
Hair grafts are formed by removing tissue from the donor site. The objective is to remove a small amount of tissue that can grow hair and transplant it to an area of the scalp that can't. The tissue containing hair can be removed from the donor area either in a strip all at once (Follicular Unit Transplantation, FUT) or in individual units one at a time (Follicular Unit Extraction, FUE).
Our latest technology ensures minimal transection of grafts leading to lesser number of grafts required.
