Hair loss is a condition encountered by many people (both men and women) by the time they enter their third decade of life. If no appropriate treatment is undertaken, the condition progresses rapidly and leads to baldness.
There are different modalities to manage hair loss, broadly categorized into non surgical & surgical methods. Non surgical modalities include medical treatment (medicines), Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection, LASER caps, Microneedling , mesotherapy with hair serums . Surgical modality is hair transplantation.
Hair transplantation has proved to be the most effective and the gold standard treatment for baldness with long lasting results when none of the other methods work effectively.
What is Hair Transplantation
Hair Transplantation is a treatment where hair follicles are transferred from one part of the body (usually scalp) to the affected areas in order to cover the baldness. This method has been proven to be the most effective treatment for people who have already lost hair and baldness has set in.
Who all can undergo Hair Transplantation ?
- Androgenetic alopecia in men
- Female baldness
- Scarring alopecia due to any injury or trauma, accidents, infections of scalp etc
- Eyebrow reconstruction
- Beard reconstruction
- Moustache reconstruction
Rationale of transplantation
Back of the scalp known as Occipital area is usually not affected by balding process and the hair in this region are permanent. This is because the hair follicles in the occipital area are not sensitive to DHT hormone ( The hormone which causes Androgenetic alopecia in both men and women).Hence they can be translocated to the bald area where they will grow in a normal pattern.The hair thus transplanted will grow naturally and can be cut , colored , trimmed or shaved . The hair continues to grow again (like your previous hair).
How Procedure of Follicular Unit Extraction(FUE) is done?
Follicular Unit Extraction is a surgical technique that involves removal of individual hair follicular units from the donor area. This is a minimally invasive and safe procedure done by the surgeon under local anesthesia. Extraction of follicles is done using an advanced motorized instrument with small circular punches (about 0.7 to 0.9mm) to remove the individual follicular units from the back of the scalp. If there is no sufficient hair in the occipital area (back of scalp), then chest hair and beard hair can be used as donor area.
These follicular units are implanted into the scalp in the bald area (recipient site). The punches used to extract the follicles are so small that barely any visible scars are seen at the donor site after extraction.This is usually done after trimming the entire scalp and hence called Shaving technique.
For women, non shave technique is done where there is no trimming of hair done during transplantation. Also strip shave technique is performed on men who don't want to get their hair trimmed for transplantation . Usually celebrities, who don't want to reveal about the procedure, opt for this kind of transplantation.
The FUE transplant procedure minimizes patient discomfort, even while extracting and implanting up to 10,000 hair or more.Since the entire procedure is non scarring , the patient can get back his very natural looks easily , with out anybody getting to know that the procedure has been done.

Hair Transplantation Cost
Cost for Hair Transplantation is based on different factors
Qualifications and Experience of Hair Transplant Surgeon
This is one of the most important factor that determines the out come of surgery. A well-qualified and experienced surgeon can carry out the procedure smoothly and safely without any complications and give the best results aesthetically . He is qualified and trained enough to blend the art and science of hair transplantation. It is always suggested to undergo surgery by a surgeon who has performed several cases successfully.
Success rate of Hair Transplantation Surgeon
Success of hair transplantation surgery depends on how the grafts are handled at the time of extraction and implantation. We at 4 senses have an excellent success rate since the procedure is done patiently making sure none of the follicles are damaged or crushed. This prolongs the life of the follicles and implanted hair stays on for a long time.
Techniques used in Hair Transplantation
We here at 4 senses believe in scar less surgeries. We use the latest automated punching technology with punches of least diameters. Hence the scars are barely formed at the donor area. We combine PRP along with transplantation at no extra cost (at the time of surgery), thus prolonging the graft survival rate and promoting faster healing of wounds at the donor and recipient areas.
Numbers of Grafts and grades of Baldness
Larger the baldness- More the number of grafts to be implanted – more the time and efforts put in by the team – more the sterile punches and materials used – more the cost.
