Also know by proprietary names such as DHI, FIT, CIT, FUSE, WOODS METHOD, and DHT). In this method; the hair Roots (Follicular Units) are individually harvested one by one from the donor area by a micro punch device of 0.75 to 1 mm size. The wounds are tiny & heal rapidly with no visible scar or pain.
The hair on the back and the side are genetically strong hair and live permanently as you might have observed by now. We use the roots (Follicles/ follicular units) of this permanent hair and graft them in the front where you have lost your hair.
As long as your hair root is alive medicines like Minoxidil (Rogaine/ Mintop) and Finasteride (Propecia/ Finpecia) can help to improve the quality of thinned out hair and prevent the progress of the Baldness.

There are basically 2 methods of Hair Transplant Surgery:
- Strip Method
- FUE- Stitch Less Method
Hair transplant surgery is a day procedure (takes 2-6 hours depending upon the extent of the procedure) and it is done under Local Anaesthesia (Only Numb the skin) while you are conscious and communicating through out the procedure. Not only that there is no hassle of Hospitalization or bandages etc. It is done as an outdoor procedure, in very comfortable setting.
Follicular Unit Transplant - STRIP METHOD:
FUT or Follicular Unit Transplant is a procedure where grafts are taken en mass in a piece of strip of hair bearing skin from the donor area. The gap after removing the strip in the donor area is closed by stitches or staples..
The advantage if this procedure is a large number of grafts can be taken and grafted in a period of short time because a team of trained technicians does the task of separation of individual grafts from the strip. The graft size is somewhat chubbier compared to FUE grafts so dense packing may not be that easy. Although grafts are separated under magnification by a team of trained technicians it is not possible to monitor every graft by the Doctor unlike FUE grafts, which are extracted by Doctor personally. Doctor spends less time with the client in this procedure is. Stitches leave a linear mark permanently in the donor area and therefore short hairstyle may not be possible because the mark may be visible. Those who are sure to keep their donor are hair long enough the scar can very well be hidden and does not remain visible. Normally the linear scar does not grow hair but a special way of stitching up the gap (called Trichophytic Closure) can grow the hair even in that linear mark and as a result that mark can be concealed more effectively. Healing period and Blood loss is usually more compared to FUE due to more traumas caused in strip removal. Postoperative discomfort & pain and other possible healing issues occasionally encountered due to stitches may be the cause why many people these days chose FUE procedure.
