Hair Transplant in Kondapur, Hyderabad
Hair Transplantation is a type of surgery where the doctor at Apollo Kondapur transplants hair from one part of the body to fill the area of the head which is bald or has very thin hair. Hair is usually transferred from the back or side of the head to the front or top of the head.
The hair follicles are removed from the ‘donor site’ and placed at the ‘recipient site’. Hair transplantation can help restore one’s eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, etc. as well as fill in places that have scars due to any accidental injury.

- FUT(Follicular Unit Transplantation)
Also known as Strip Harvesting, this is the most common technique for removing hair follicles from the donor site. The surgeon cuts out a 6-10 inch strip of scalp skin from the back of the head which usually has better hair growth.
The incision is then closed back by stitching and usually recovers in around 2 weeks. Next, the removed portion of the scalp is divided into several small sections called grafts, each with an individual hair or a little more than that. After implantation of these sections, natural-looking hair growth can be achieved.
- FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
In FUE, the back of your head is shaved by the surgeon, and the hair follicles are one-by-one cut out directly through tiny punch incisions which usually recover in a few days. The individual follicles that are cut out usually contain 1 to 4 hairs and are then gently placed into tiny holes. A surgeon may transplant hundreds or thousands of hair follicles in one session.
- DHI (Direct Hair Implantation)
This procedure has been considered one of the most advanced hair transplantation techniques. In this procedure, the hair follicles are removed from the donor area one by one through a very fine extractor with a diameter of 1mm or less.
The hair is then placed directly on the area using a single-use implanter. Although the procedure seems similar, it takes less time compared to the traditional techniques and better results with less pain.
- Regrowth that appears unnatural
- Shock Loss or Folliculitis(not permanent)
Yes, since the transplanted hair is naturally grown like the other hair on your head, it can go through thinning over time as well.
The DHI method has a faster recovery period and can be performed with less bleeding and a better possibility for achieving higher density compared to other methods.
Within two to three weeks of the surgery, one can expect complete restoration of hair.
