Hair Transplant

Hair Transplant

Hair Transplant is transplantation of hair from one part of body to another part which is bald. Hair are usually harvested from Occipital region i.e. Back of the head and transplanted to the bald area usually front of the head. There are two techniques for transplant FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) in which there is a scar at the donor region which needs to be stitched. But new technique is FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) in which there is no cut or scar. It is bloodless, painless, scarless and stitch-less. It is a day care surgery. The waiting period is very less and the cost is 80% lower than that in North America even after including the air-fare, accommodation and vacation. Punjab these days is the hub of hair Transplant as many are being done and NRIs (Non-Resident Indians) from Canada and USA are the majority of patients as this is a cosmetic procedure and is not covered under MSP in Canada.
