Hair Transplant

Hair transplantation in Hyderabad

Hair transplant is a procedure where hair is moved from the back or sides of the head to the front or top, where hair is thin or absent. It is typically done under local anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure.

Causes of Hair Loss or Baldness:

Hair loss or baldness can result from various factors, including:

  1. Poor diet or nutritional deficiencies
  2. Stress
  3. Chronic illness
  4. Hormonal imbalance
  5. Certain medications
  6. Genetics (most common factor)

Bio FUE in Hyderabad:

Bio FUE in Hyderabad is a method of extracting hair follicles from the back of the head using multiple incisions in follicular unit extraction. The doctor creates tiny holes in the area of the scalp that will receive the transplant and places the extracted hair in these holes. Hundreds or even thousands of hair can be transplanted in a single session.

The hair transplant procedure typically takes 4-5 hours, and stitches, if used, are removed around ten days after surgery. While most people need only one session, those with large bald areas or progressive hair loss may require multiple sessions to achieve desired results.

The Procedure of Hair Transplant:

The doctor numbs the head with a local anesthetic and uses either Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) techniques to obtain follicles for transplantation.

Recovery and Results:

After the surgery, the scalp may be tender for a few weeks, and medications may be prescribed. Bandages might cover the scalp for a day or two, and patients can usually return to work after 2-5 days.

New hair growth typically starts after 3-4 weeks, and significant improvement is noticeable within a few months. Around 60% of new hair growth is usually observed after 6 to 9 months. The doctor may recommend minoxidil (Rogaine) to improve hair growth after transplantation.

Small crusts may form on each graft within 24 hours and will shed in 2-3 weeks. Transplanted hair will start growing back within 2-4 months, with complete results achieved after the procedure.

Some patients may experience modest swelling in the forehead area for a few days, which usually subsides in 3-4 days.

Post-Treatment Instructions


  • Take prescribed medications regularly.
  • Spray the transplanted hair with saline water regularly.
  • Engage in light exercises that don’t strain the scalp.
  • Cover the head with a surgical cap for a minimum of 3 weeks to protect from heat, dust, and sun rays.


  • Avoid alcohol consumption for the first 2 days after surgery.
  • Avoid using tap water on the transplanted hair for a few weeks.
  • Avoid bending downwards for the first 5 days to prevent swelling.
  • Avoid using a hairdryer or scratching the transplanted hair.
  • Use the shampoo recommended by the doctor.

Risks Involved in Hair Transplant Surgery:

Side effects are rare and usually temporary, including:

  1. Bleeding (avoid blood thinner medications before surgery).
  2. Infection of hair follicles (folliculitis).
  3. Swelling of the scalp (subsides in a week).
  4. Bruising around the eyes (subsides in a few days).
  5. Numbness in the scalp.
  6. Itching.
