What is a hair transplant?

A hair transplant in Iran is a permanent solution for your baldness. A hair transplant is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that moves hair follicles from one part of the body, called the ‘donor site,’ to the bald part of the body known as the ‘recipient site.’ Hair transplant is sought after by patients who seek a natural-looking permanent solution to their baldness. Usually, hair specialists prefer to use the hair of the back of the scalp as the donor because they are more resistant to alopecia.

The most common area for hair transplants is the scalp, which is popular among men with receding hairlines. Although a full hair head is unrealistic, you can achieve a fuller-looking head. A beard transplant is also used to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery in the face. The procedure involves moving hair from a donor area on the body, either follicle by follicle (FUE) or in skin strips (FUT strip harvesting), and then carefully placing them into the bald area.

Best hair transplant

Many of them opt for a hair restoration method to get their hair back, like hair transplant surgery. In Iran, it is an affordable cosmetic surgery that can be done in the artistic hands of experienced Iranian surgeons.

FUE and FUT hair transplant methods

Hair transplant or facial hair transplant are mainly performed with two techniques: FUT and FUE:

The FUT hair transplant in Iran: the surgeon removes a strip of donor area skin to extract individual follicular units of hair to transfer to the bald areas. The FUE hair transplant in Iran: follicular units of hair are extracted directly from the scalp one by one, and then they are transplanted to the recipient area.

FUT vs. FUE hair transplant, which one is better?

FUE hair transplant in Iran and FUT hair restoration in Iran, are both very common. These two hair transplant methods have the same natural-looking results. The hair implantation procedure in FUE and FUT is identical: follicular grafts are placed one by one in the bald areas. The difference is in the extraction method: in the FUE method, hair follicles are extracted one by one while in the FUT method, the surgeon removes a strip of skin, and then the specialists extract hair from the strip one by one.

You cannot say which method is better, FUT, or FUE. You have to consult with an experienced hair specialist in Iran, to find out which technique is right for you. Choosing the proper method depends on:

  • Your hair reserve on the back of the scalp
  • Your baldness extensiveness
  • Your overall health situation
  • Your preferences

There are other hair transplant methods in Iran, like DHI, FIT, and … all derive from these two methods with a little deviation.

FUT vs. FUE hair transplant, what is the difference?

The main difference between FUE and FUT is in the way of hair follicles extraction from the “donor area”:

Hair Follicles Extraction method: In the FUE, hairs are extracted individually, which takes one to four hours. In the FUT, hairs are removed at once by taking a strip of skin from the donor area, which takes 15 to 30 minutes. Follicles preparation for Implantation: Then, a team of skilled hair transplant technicians using a high-powered stereomicroscope prepares follicular grafts for implantation. The trained technicians in Iran prepare the follicular grafts and ensure that they remain in optimal condition until transplanted. Hair follicles Implantation method: In both methods, after the preparation of follicular grafts, hair specialists in modern Tehran hair centers make small incisions in bald and thinning areas and put the extracted hair in them. Scarring: FUE method does not require stitches, and the tiny hair extraction sites leave no visible scars. These implantation sites will heal in one week and will be easily concealed with longer neighboring hair. Strip harvesting or FUT hair transplant results in a little scar on the back of the scalp, which also will be hidden with the longer nearby hair. Cost of hair transplant: FUE procedure is a more time-consuming method, which makes it more expensive. But FUT and FUE hair transplant in Iran have almost the same price.

hair plugs vs. hair transplant

Hair plugs are a group of hair removed from a donor for hair transplantation. Hair plugs are used in a hair restoration procedure. While the common belief is that hair plugs and hair transplants are two different procedures, hair plugs are a form of hair transplant. Hair transplants are procedures that use hair implants from your head to cover bald areas, while hair plugs are just a particular form of implant that is around a group of hair.

Hair Transplant is the procedure in which hair implants (or plugs) are transplanted from the donor area to the bald area to have natural-looking hair.

A hair Implant is hair that is extracted and transplanted, either in the form of a strip or a single unit (FUT and FUE methods).

A hair Plug is a strip or single unit of hair and is referred to as an implant.

Advantages and Disadvantages of a hair transplant

The Advantages of Hair Transplant

You are the donor in this case, which means you don’t have to worry about the history and quality of hair that is used to cover the bald areas. As long as you haven’t opted for multiple hair transplants, the procedure is complete in just one sitting! Hair transplant is a completely safe procedure and poses just mild discomfort, which can be addressed by local anesthesia.

The Disadvantages of Hair Transplant

While the transplant leads to healthy hair growth, it may take months for you to notice a visible increase in your hair length. The procedure may lead to possible side effects such as scalp swelling, itching, and numbness of the scalp. As minuscule as it may be, there is always a chance for the transplanted hair follicles to die off before the occurrence of any regrowth. In this case, the patient is likely to notice bumps and redness on the transplant site.
