What is Hair Transplant?

Hair Transplant is a procedure where the surgeon extracts the healthy, bald resistant hair roots from your donor area which is situated on the back and sides of your head and implants them into the bald area.



What is Male Pattern Baldness?

The hair has roots are present in the deeper dermis layer of the skin. These hair roots are also called as follicles.

As shown in the diagram, the male hormone i.e. DHT(De-Hydro-testosterone) attaches on the hair roots & causes some chain of reactions which makes the hair fall off .

The male hormone needs a receptor site to attach on the follicle. This site is also called as the receptor site.

These receptors are absent on the hair roots of the back and sides of the head and therefore the male hormone cannot attach on these hair roots. Therefore the hair in these areas won't be affected by the male hormone and would stay permanently for the whole life. This area on the back and sides of the head is therefore also known as the Permanent Zone. This Permanent Zone is also called as the Donor Area.

So the surgeon extracts these bald resistant hair roots from the permanent zone and implants them into the bald area .As these are bald resistant hair, they will not fall off after implantation, even by the effects of DHT. This forms the logic of Hair Transplant.



How many Hair or Follicular Units will I require?

This depends on 3 factors i.e.
  • The Present Baldness
  • Hairline Desired
  • Density Desires

The Present Baldness can be divided into 7 grades as shown in the figure. The greater the grade of baldness, more the number of follicular units that would be required.

The Hairline Desired: The more anteriorly designed hairlines would require more number of follicular units.

Density Desired: More number of follicular units would be required for more densely filled hair than for less densely filled hair.

Density is divided into.
Fuller density or 45 FU/sq.cm.
Camouflage density or 22 FU/sq.cm.


What are the different ways of doing a Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant is done in 2 basic ways i.e.

Strip technique or FUT:
1) Surgical technique involves harvesting a strip of skin from your Backside of head. The hair are then separated and implanted on the bald area.
2) This involves cutting your scalp skin, then stitching it.
3 ) This technique is therefore painful, gives a long linear scar.


2) FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction):

FUE is a technique of transplant wherein hair are removed from the back side of the head (Donor Area), one by one, without taking any incision and they are then transferred to the bald patches



What is HARRTS Hair Transplant and what are its advantages?

HARRTS is Human Assisted Rapid Robotic Hair Transplant System.is the most advanced minimally invasive hair restoration device for both men and women. Developed by physicians, medical scientists and engineers, HARRTS allows physicians to perform hair restoration procedures more efficiently, safely, and in less time, while delivering natural, permanent results. It is the Fastest, Safest, Least-Invasive and Most Result Oriented Technique of Hair Transplant Available currently.



What is the HARRTS procedure like?

Using only local anaesthetic, physicians use the HARRTS device to gently extract individual micro hair grafts from the back of your head. These grafts are then implanted into the balding areas to regrow thick, healthy, natural hair.



How long does the HARRTS procedure take?

Typically 5-6 hours. The advanced HARRTS device can complete the harvesting portion of the procedure in one-third less time compared with other devices. That means your physician can harvest more grafts in less time and reduce the amount of time the grafts are awaiting implantation, which gives you better results.



What kind of results should I expect?

Your new hair grafts will grow in the areas that are bald or thinning, creating a fuller, natural looking head of hair. Since it's your real hair, it looks completely natural, restoring a more youthful appearance and confidence levels.



When do you see the results? When will my hair start to grow?

Newly transplanted hair grows naturally in several phases. You'll see new hairs in about three months, followed by a noticeable improvement in six months and full growth at 12 to 14 months.



What is the recovery period like?

The procedure heals quickly and is not painful. You can return to work in a couple of days, with very few activity restrictions after the procedure.



Am I a good candidate for a procedure using HARRTS?

The majority of hair loss patients are candidates for the HARRTS procedure, particularly those who would like to wear very short haircuts, want the least amount of activity restriction after their procedure, or have had a prior strip procedure and need a scar camouflage. Consult a physician using the HARRTS technology to find out more.



What about my present existing hair? How do I prevent them from falling?

Your pre-existing hair is always vulnerable to fall because of the effects of DHT.
We recommend you to start taking medication to prevent the falling of your pre-existing hair.



Can I customize my Hair Transplant?

You can decide for yourself for the area where you want the Hair Transplant done. You can also decide for yourself as to how many grafts you want in the bald area. You can calculate this by logging on to the HARRTS Hair Studio Application on our Website.



What happens to the extracted area? Does the hair grow back again?

The donor area looks still the same after extraction, no baldness appears over there though the hair that has been extracted is been transplanted to the bald area. The total number of hair still remains the same; we just manipulate the number of hair in preferred locations to give you a fuller look.



When do we get the results?

You can roughly see the results at 15 days. Whatever look you see on the 15th day, would almost be mimicked at the end result, which would roughly come after 6-8 months' time.

What is the cost of the transplant?

It depends upon how much baldness you are having right now. For that please come down for a one-to-one consultation with our experts, which is free of cost or send your photographs at contact@harrts.com to get an approximation of your requirements.



Is the HARRTS procedure painful?

No. It's an in-office procedure rather than a complicated surgery. Your physician will use a local anaesthetic to numb the area where he or she is working. Most of the time you can watch videos or listen to music while the procedure is going on.



Do I need to shave my head to have a HARRTS procedure?

No. If your hair is long enough, a physician can harvest hair grafts using the HARRTS by shaving small areas that can be covered by your longer hair.



What about my existing hair? Will they fall off?

Your existing hair is always under the effects of DHT, therefore they are prone to fall off. When would they fall off can't be told. So, it is advised that you start medications for your existing hair so that they are preserved and don't fall. The medications are not required for the transplanted hair as they are bald resistant and permanent.



Do I need to take any rest?

The procedure heals quickly and is not painful. You can return to work in a couple of days, with very few activity restrictions after the procedure.
