What Is a Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which individual hair follicles are taken from one area of the body, called the donor site, and inserted into the skin in an area where the patient is experiencing hair loss, which is called the recipient site. The most popular use of a hair transplant procedure is to treat male pattern baldness.
What Are the Procedures for Hair Transplant?
Several different procedures are available for hair transplant, but the ones Dr. Kiely uses include the following:
- Micro Grafting – This procedure involves removing a strip of tissue about 1–1.5 × 15–30 cm in size that contains hair and skin from the back of the patient’s head, dissecting individual groupings of hair follicles from the strip, and then placing each small hair follicle group into the skin in the balding area.
- Mini-Micro Grafting – This procedure also involves removing strips of hair-bearing tissue that are about 1–1.5 × 15–30 cm in size from the back of the patient’s head, dissecting individual groupings of hair follicles from the strip, and then placing each small hair follicle group into the skin in the balding area.
- Follicular Unit Extraction – This procedure involves harvesting individual follicular units that contain up to four hairs with a tiny punch. The harvested follicles typically come from the back of the head and are about 0.6mm and 1.0mm in diameter. Then, the surgeon inserts these follicular units into the skin where hair is thinning.
