Local anaesthesia in hair transplant
For local anaesthesia, medicines are given orally. The scalp is made numb with local anaesthetic xylocaine. Anaesthesia is monitored in scalp area throughout the surgery. Usually, Hair Transplant procedure are long and takes 5-6 hours depending on the number of grafts that are transplanted. It is necessary to monitor anaesthesia and if required it is given again.
FUT hair Transplant Donor area
In FUT hair Transplant Thin strip of Hair is surgically removed from the back of the scalp. To minimise the scar area with the maximum density of hair is stripped. The strip is usually taken from the back of scalp (Concept of donor dominance by Dr Norman in 1959). Dr Norman stated that the hereditary predisposition of hair loss resides in follicles transplant, not in the scalp.
The striped part is then put in the chilled solution of ringer lactate so that the survival rate of grafts increases. The donor area is closed with the latest Trichophytic closure technique with less than 1mm of width so that growing hair can cover up the area and makes it practically invisible for anyone to see the donor area. Since Cosmetic Surgery is involved in it, you don’t have to worry about hair transplant scar.
Dissection of strip in FUT Hair Transplant
Hair follicles are dissected in their natural form. Follicles are naturally occurring group of 1-4 hairs. Remaining tissue from the strip is discarded. Grafts are then put in a long tray in the cold solution of ringer lactate. These grafts are then harvested in the area marked.

The aim remains the same giving natural and aesthetic look. An incision is made with the help of fine instrument having size 21- and 19- gauge hypodermic needles. Usually, perpendicular slits are made because it sets the angel at which the hair follicle will grow. Hair Follicles having 1-2 hairs are transplanted at frontal hair line to give natural look and hair follicles having 3-4 hair are transplanted in rest area giving perfect hair density.
Hair Follicle Transplantation
Once the recipient site is prepared hair follicles from the tray of chilled ringer lactate solution are taken out gradually and placed in the slits created as stated above hair follicle with 1-2 hairs create frontal hair line and hair follicles with 3-4 hairs will increase the hair density.
