Does Hair Transplant Work? Everything About Hair Transplant

Hair transplant is done to add extra hair to the scalp area that may have become thinner or bald. It is done by taking hair from the thickest part of the scalp or other body parts and replanting it to a thinning or balding area.
The first transplant was done in 1939 in Japan with a single hair on the scalp. In the Following years, doctors developed the “plug” technique. This involves transplanting large hair using micro and macro tissue grafts to minimize the appearance of hair grafts on the scalp.

Do hair transplants work?

Hair transplants are often more effective than the hair restoration products available. But there are several factors to consider:
  • Ten to eighty percent of transplanted hairs will grow in about three to four months.
  • Like normal hair, the transplanted hair grows thinner over time.
  • People with dormant hair follicles may have less effective grafts. But a 2016 study found plasma therapy could help 75% or more transplanted hair to grow.
  • Hair transplant does not work for everyone. They are mainly used for hair restoration, if you are naturally bald or thin, or if you have hair loss due to injury, it may not work.
Most of the hair transplants are done with your existing hair on the scalp, so they’re not as effective for people with:
  • thick scalp scars from injuries
  • hair loss due to chemotherapy or other medications
  • widespread thinning and baldness

How does it work?

Simply put, a hair transplant takes hair that you have and transfers it to an area where it is not. It is usually taken from the back of the head, but it can also be taken from other parts of the body. Your surgeon will disinfect the hair removal site and numb it with a local anesthetic. You may also need a sedative to help you fall asleep during the procedure. Your surgeon will then place one of two implants: FUT or FUE.

Things to Avoid After Treatment

Here are some care tips after hair transplant surgery you should follow:
  • Wait a few days before you wash your hair after surgery
  • Use only mild shampoos for the first few weeks.
  • You will be able to return to work or normal activities in about three days.
  • Comb or brush new grafts for about three weeks.
  • Do not exercise for about a week.
  • Don't wear hats, sweaters, or coats until your doctor tells you to.
  • Don't worry if your hair falls out. This is part of the process.


  • Hair transplant costs range from Rs. 40,000 to Rs.50,000 per session.
  • Final costs may depend on the:
  • The extent of the transplant procedure
  • surgical technique chosen
  • availability of surgeons in your area
  • experience of the surgeon
Aftercare medications can also increase your bottom line


Talk to your doctor or transplant surgeon before deciding on a hair transplant. Understand that no procedure guarantees success, but scarring is a risk. You may not be eligible for the treatment depending on the quality or volume of your hair.
