FUT Hair Transplant
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation), also known as strip surgery, is an ideal choice for patients with higher grade of baldness. In this procedure, the hair bearing skin is removed by using a scalpel and the resultant gap is sutured together. This strip is divided in grafts and then implanted on the recipient area.
FUE Hair Transplant
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a more sophisticated method. In this method individual grafts are taken out one by one and placed in the bald area. This is the reason there is no linear scar, but just only tiny, inconspicuous dot-like scars. Though unlike the popular myth, FUE is not a scar-less surgery.
Bio-FUE TM Hair Transplant
Bio-FUE™ is an advanced version of FUE hair transplant developed by AK Clinics team of doctors. It is a long-term customized plan for hair restoration using indigenous equipment like ‘Flat Punch’. Also, this takes into account the fact that every patient is different, so needs different plan.
Bio-DHT TM Hair Transplant
Bio-DHT™ is a further improvement of Bio-FUE™ in which the extraction and implantation of grafts happen at the same time. This helps in reducing the out-of-body time of grafts to a minimum and hence improves the graft survival. This is also being currently studied by the ISHRS FUE Research Committee.
Facial Hair Transplant
Facial Hair Transplant is carried out for the restoration of areas like eyebrows, eyelashes, mustache, beard and sideburns. The hair is generally taken from the back of the head through FUE or FUT and transplanted on the face. Though this procedure very safe but requires very high skill due to the importance of hair direction.
Beard Hair Transplant
Beard transplant is a type of facial hair transplant but is increasingly becoming more and more popular among the youth. Inadequate facial hair becomes a source of embarrassment as this is generally linked to masculinity. The procedure though simple needs a highly experienced surgeon to give a natural look.
Body Hair Transplant
Body hair transplant is used in patients with weak donor area. There are many areas of the body from which grafts can be harvested like chest, back, pubis, armpits etc but the best source is beard grafts. The body hair is usually give good results when used in conjunction with the scalp hair.
