This article delves into the world of hair transplantation. We'll explore the procedure itself, the requirements to be considered a good candidate, and the factors that influence the cost. 


About the hair transplant procedure

Before we discuss hair transplantation, it is important to note that it is a surgical procedure that involves transferring hair follicles to balding or thinning areas of the scalp. It is typically considered by people who have not responded to other hair loss treatments and is performed by dermatologists or plastic surgeons.



What are the requirements for hair transplantation? 

Continuing our discussion on hair transplantation, it is important to highlight the importance of meeting the eligibility criteria for the procedure. These criteria include:

  • Having areas of thick hair growth on the scalp.
  • Not being someone who has never had hair since birth.
  • Being over 24 years old.
  • Not having any serious health problems.
  • Not having any negative reactions to anesthesia.
  • Not having any blood-borne diseases.



How to transplant head hair

Hair transplantation is performed in several steps:

  1. The scalp is thoroughly cleaned.
  2. The surgeon uses a small needle to anesthetize an area of the scalp with local anesthesia.
  3. One of the following techniques is then used to obtain follicles for transplantation:

Strip hair transplantation (FUT):

  • A scalpel is used to remove a strip of scalp skin from an area with high hair density. The incision is usually several centimeters long and is then closed with stitches.
  • The surgeon then separates the removed part of the scalp into small pieces using a magnifying glass and a sharp surgical knife.
  • When planted, these pieces will help achieve natural-looking hair growth.

Hair transplantation by extraction (FUE):

  • Hair follicles are removed directly from the back of the head through hundreds to thousands of tiny incisions.
  • The surgeon makes small holes with a blade or needle in the area of the scalp where the hair transplantation is being performed.
  • They gently place the hair into these holes.
  • In a single treatment session, the surgeon may transplant hundreds or even thousands of hairs.

After that, the scalp will be covered with gauze or bandages for a few days. A hair transplant session can take 4 hours or more, and the stitches are removed about 10 days after the surgery.

It may take up to three or four sessions to achieve a full head of hair. In this case, several months are between sessions to allow each transplant to heal completely.

Hair transplantation using DHI technology

The direct hair transplantation technique is a modern technique that is a modification of the FUE technique. It uses a tool called Choi pens that performs the two steps of opening channels in the scalp and transplanting hair follicles at the same time. This reduces the time the follicles stay outside the body and reduces bleeding during the procedure.

This technique is considered effective and permanent for restoring hair growth with natural density. It is also characterized by the following:

  • Reduced time the follicles stay outside the body.
  • Reduced trauma during handling of the follicles.
  • This technique achieves natural results with continued growth of the transplanted hair.
  • The success of hair transplantation with this technique does not depend on the condition of the skin in the recipient or donor area.

This is the most important technique to mention when discussing hair transplantation. As a result, we rely on it at the DHI Egypt Hair Transplantation Center because of its benefits, making it one of the best hair transplantation techniques. In addition to the professionalism that the center deals with, the process is carried out with the same global quality without the need to travel abroad to perform it.

Hair transplant price

Now that we have discussed the procedure of hair transplantation, you are probably wondering about the cost.

The cost of hair transplantation varies depending on several factors, the most important of which is the technique used. The following factors affect the cost of hair transplantation:

  • The number of grafts to be transplanted.
  • The hair transplantation technique.
  • The number of sessions the patient will need.
  • The geographical location of the hair transplantation center.
  • The reputation and skill of the surgeon.



What are the possible complications of hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation may be associated with some potential complications. Although these complications are often minor and require a short recovery period, it is important to be aware of them.

Here are some examples of complications that can occur after hair transplantation:

  • Infection: Inflammation of the scalp can occur due to bacterial infection. The infection is usually treated with appropriate antibiotics.
  • Swelling: The patient may notice swelling and swelling of the scalp after surgery. This swelling usually disappears gradually over a short period of time.
  • Scabs: Small scabs may appear on the scalp in the area where the hair was taken or transplanted. It is usually advised to avoid peeling these scabs and wait for them to fall off naturally.
  • Numbness: The patient may feel temporary numbness in the scalp after surgery. This numbness usually lasts for a short time and gradually disappears.
  • Itching: The patient may feel temporary itching of the scalp during the recovery period. Itching should be avoided so as not to affect the growth of the transplanted hair.
  • Folliculitis: Inflammation of the hair follicles on the scalp may occur and can usually be treated with good wound care and the use of prescribed antibiotics.
  • Temporary hair loss: Temporary loss of transplanted hair may occur in the first few months after surgery. Over time, the hair begins to grow back and regain its density.
  • Difference in texture: The shape and texture of the new transplanted hair may be slightly different from the original hair. Over time, the shape of the hair improves and adapts to the general shape of the scalp.

It is important to talk to your doctor to get detailed information about the potential complication.
