Medical Tourists Rest Assured with Mtqua

Hair Transplantation & Restoration

Hair transplantation is a procedure where individual hair follicles are moved from one part of the body to another (usually the scalp). In such as case, only hair follicles resistant to balding are transplanted. Balding not only affects men but women also.

Hair transplantation is usually performed on the scalp but eyebrows, eyelashes, beard, chest hair, etc can also be restored. There are two kinds of hair transplantation techniques- strip harvesting and follicular unit transplantation. In strip harvesting, a strip of the scalp with hair is removed and the wound closed with sutures. This strip is cut into many pieces and transplanted back into thinning areas. In the second technique, individual follicles of hair are removed and transplanted to the thinning area with the help of a micro blade.
