How Does Hair Transplant Work ?

Hair Transplant

Hair transplantation is a microsurgical procedure that should be performed in a hospital environment by skilled doctors and teams to ensure safety and optimal outcomes. With our expertise and state-of-the-art facilities, we prioritize patient comfort, meticulous technique, and natural-looking results.

Hair loss is a common condition where hair follicles shrink or become inactive, leading to thinning hair or baldness. It can be caused by genetics, hormones, medical conditions, medications, deficiencies, or lifestyle factors. Treatments are available to manage and slow down hair loss, including medications , hair treatments and hair transplantation.

Consultation with a healthcare professional is important to determine the cause and explore suitable treatment options.

The method of Sapphire F.U.E

Sapphire F.U.E Hair Transplant

Sapphire F.U.E (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a highly advanced and minimally invasive Hair Transplant technique. It involves extracting individual hair follicles from the donor area using a specialized tool with a sapphire blade.

The sapphire blade allows for precise and smaller incisions, resulting in minimal scarring and a faster recovery time. The extracted follicles are then carefully implanted into the recipient area, ensuring natural-looking results.

The method of D.H.I

Direct Hair Implantation (D.H.I) Hair Transplant

D.H.I is a cutting-edge hair transplant technique that involves the direct implantation of hair follicles into the recipient area. Unlike traditional methods, D.H.I uses a specialized pen-like device that simultaneously extracts and implants hair follicles.

This enables a faster and more efficient procedure, as well as precise control over the angle, direction, and depth of the implanted hair follicles. D.H.I ensures a high graft survival rate and excellent cosmetic outcomes.

How does non-shaved hair transplant works

Non-Shaved Hair Transplant

Non-Shaved Hair Transplant, also known as "unshaven" hair transplant, is a technique that allows for hair transplantation without shaving the entire donor area. Instead, only a small portion of the donor area is trimmed, enabling the extraction of hair follicles while keeping the surrounding hair intact. This method is suitable for individuals who prefer to maintain their existing hair length during the transplant process, providing a discreet and convenient option.

The Stages Of Hair Transplant

A hair transplant involves several key stages. It begins with a consultation to assess candidacy and discuss expectations.The expertise of the surgical team, precise execution of these stages, and careful attention to detail significantly contribute to the overall success and naturalness of the hair transplant outcome.

  • Graft Collection (Extraction)

    FUE Method: Experienced surgeons or technicians use a specialized punch tool to individually extract healthy hair follicles from the donor area (typically the back of the head).

  • Opening Channels (Incisions)

    Expert surgeons make precise, tiny incisions or channels in the recipient area (areas with hair loss) using specialized instruments.

    The angle, depth, and distribution of these incisions are crucial for the natural growth and appearance of transplanted hair.

Consultation and Assessment

The process begins with a thorough consultation and assessment with our experienced doctors at Ima Health. They will evaluate your hair loss pattern, discuss your expectations, and assess the suitability of a Hair Transplant procedure for you. This stage is crucial for understanding your goals and determining the best approach.

Preoperative Preparation

Before the procedure, you may be advised to follow certain pre-operative instructions. These may include avoiding blood-thinning medications, alcohol, and smoking, as well as maintaining a healthy scalp and hair hygiene routine.


On the day of the procedure, local anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort throughout the process. This numbs the donor and recipient areas, minimizing any potential discomfort during the procedure.

Donor Area Preparation and Graft Collection

The donor area, typically the back or sides of the scalp, is prepared by trimming the hair to an appropriate length. Depending on the chosen technique , the grafts are collected from the donor area.

Graft Examination and Preparation

The harvested grafts are settled into a special solution to keep their quality. They are carefully trimmed and prepared for transplantation, ensuring that they are in optimal condition for successful implantation.

Channel Opening (Recipient Site Creation)

The recipient area, where the grafts will be implanted, is prepared by creating tiny incisions or channels in a precise pattern. The size, angle, and direction of these channels play a crucial role in achieving natural-looking results. The channel opening stage requires skill and precision to ensure proper alignment and density.

Graft Implantation

The prepared grafts are then meticulously placed into the recipient channels created in the previous step. The surgeon delicately implants each graft, taking into consideration the natural hair growth pattern and aesthetic goals. This stage requires attention to detail and artistic judgment to achieve the desired outcome.

Post-operative Care and Instructions

After the procedure, you will receive detailed post-operative care instructions. These may include guidelines for hair washing, medication usage, and lifestyle restrictions. It is essential to follow these instructions to promote proper healing and maximize the success of the transplant.

Follow-up Appointments

You will be scheduled for follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, assess the healing process, and address any concerns or questions you may have. These appointments allow the medical team to ensure that you are healing well and provide any necessary guidance.
