What Is A Male Hair Transplant?
If you are experiencing hair loss as a male, a hair transplant may be a viable solution for you. During a male hair transplant, hair follicles are taken from areas of your scalp with healthy hair growth and transplanted to areas where hair is thinning or balding. This can provide a natural and long-lasting solution to male pattern baldness.
There are a variety of techniques that can be used, including FUE and FUT, and the choice will depend on your individual needs and preferences.
How Does the FUT Procedure Work?
Male hair transplant typically involves taking hair follicles from the back or sides of the head, where hair is genetically programmed to grow for life, and transplanting them into the thinning or balding areas on the top or front of the head.
The most common technique used is Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), where hair grafts are harvested and implanted in the recipient area with the help of tiny incisions or punctures. The transplanted hair will then grow in the recipient area, producing a natural-looking result.
Candidates for male hair transplants are typically those who have experienced significant hair loss or thinning and have enough healthy hair follicles on their scalp to support the transplantation process. It is important for candidates to have realistic expectations and understand that while hair transplant procedures can significantly improve the appearance of hair loss, they may not restore a full head of hair.
It is recommended that candidates schedule a consultation with our qualified hair transplant specialists to determine if they are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
During your male hair transplant, you can expect to arrive at the clinic and be prepped for the procedure, which may include shaving your head and applying local anesthesia. The experts will then extract healthy hair follicles from the donor area, typically the back of the head, and transplant them into the thinning or balding areas of the scalp.
The procedure can take several hours and may require multiple sessions depending on the extent of the balding or thinning areas. You may experience some discomfort during and after the procedure, but it should be manageable with pain medication. You can expect some scabbing and redness in the recipient area, but this should subside within a few days.
The cost of a male hair transplant can vary depending on several factors such as the extent of hair loss and the number of hair grafts needed. At Nova Medical Hair Transplant, the cost of hair grafts is $3.99 to $6.99. The total cost of the procedure can be estimated during a consultation with our hair transplant specialist.
