FUE hair transplantation is the most cutting-edge method of hair restoration available today, and it produces the most natural hair transplantation results. While the patient is under local anesthesia, individual follicles, typically containing 1 to 4 hairs, are transplanted. To remove the follicles, which are between 0.6mm and 1.0mm in diameter, a microsurgical extraction instrument is used. Because of the tool's size and the technique used, scarring is minimal and almost invisible to the naked eye.

The hair follicles are then examined and prepared for transplantation under a microscope. Your doctor will use a specialized microsurgical needle to puncture the scalp area where the grafts will be placed. The hair will then be blended in by your doctor, who will insert the grafts at an angle and density that matches the original hair. This enables the hair to resemble a natural and realistic hair pattern.

Would It Be Possible For You To Use Someone Else's Hair For A Hair Transplant?

Can someone else donate hair for my transplant is a question we've been asked a few times, and the short answer is no, we wouldn't recommend it. People think of hair transplant donors when they think of transplants. If doctors can transplant organs, why can't they transplant hair?

It would be nearly impossible to perform a hair transplant using someone else's hair. Due to compatibility issues, a hair transplant only uses hair from your own body. As a result, a doctor would not use hair from another person to avoid donor hair rejection by the recipient and future infections. If you use someone else's hair, your body will automatically develop an immune response and reject the foreign hair, which can lead to infections and hair loss, rendering the hair transplant ineffective.

Is It Possible To Use Body Hair For A Hair Transplant?

There are some differences between scalp and body hair that can cause a hair transplant to look unnatural and, in some cases, fail. There are several concerns, including the following: the difference in structure between scalp hair and body hair, the process used to remove body hair, the incompatibility between scalp hair and body hair, hair death two or three years after the procedure, and typically body hair has a lower quality than scalp hair because the hair and structure in the scalp are more coherent than the hair around the body. When it comes to hair transplantation, compatibility is critical for a good result, and body hair does not have this with the scalp.

The success rate of a hair transplant using body hair is significantly lower than that of a hair transplant using scalp hair. The main reason for this is that body hair is not as healthy as scalp hair, so not all hair will take.

As a result, it is not recommended to use body hair for a hair transplant. In Asmed, we use the best techniques to get long-lasting hair restoration results. You can check the hair transplant prices and find the most suitable treatment for yourself on our website.
