What is Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant (also called hair restoration or hair implantation) is the process of permanently restoring hair by transplanting new follicles into balding or thinning areas. Healthy follicles are taken from the back or the sides of the head, or other hairy body areas like chest, beard, back, stomach if required.

The hair on the front of the scalp are lost progressively and is called the temporary zone, however hair on back of the scalp are genetically programmed to stay for a longer time and is referred to as the permanent zone. Transferring hair roots from the “permanent zone” to the “temporary zone” is the principle of hair restoration. Hair from back of the scalp can be harvested as a strip of skin and this technique is called FUT or it can be extracted as single hair roots, this is called the FUE technique. SkinCity employees both FUT & FUE techniques to give best possible results with hair transplantation.
