Hairtransplant Procedure

Hair Transplant Overview

Hair transplantation is a sophisticated, refined process that involves moving hair from one part of the body (usually the back of the scalp where there is an abundance of donor hair) to an area where it is thinning or balding (alopecia).

Since the 1950’s, hair has been successfully transplanted from the back of the scalp to the other areas of the scalp. The technique has evolved into an ultra-refined process of harvesting the hair, preparing the individual follicular units, and delicately transplanting the hair to the desired site for a very natural appearance.

At the Meraki hair transplant & skin clinic , Our team specialize in treating men and women who are looking to maintain and restore their living, growing hair by utilizing the most modern and proven hair transplant techniques.

In contrast to FUT, Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) is a technique where the individual follicular units are excised one-by-one from the scalp. In this procedure, instead of making an incision and removing a strip of scalp, a round scalpel punch is used to make a circular incision around the follicular units allowing them to be excised one-by-one. The follicular units are then examined under the high-powered microscope and trimmed as needed.

They are then placed into the recipient sites that has created. There are several reasons to perform FUE on a patient, the most common being the ability for patients to cut their hair very short without seeing a linear scar in the donor area. Our team has tremendous experience with the FUE technique and has been performing it longer then any physician or other practice in the Pune.

Ultimately, the most important goal of the procedure is to produce a natural result that satisfies the goals and expectations of the patient.



female baldness pattern

Female pattern hair loss is relatively common and affects about 40% – 50% of women with some degree of thinning in their lifetime. Female pattern hair loss is different from male pattern loss and tends to be more diffuse. Psychologically, the effects of hair loss for women can be significant and negatively affect their self-confidence in both personal and professional environments.

There are a number of causes of hair loss in women. Most commonly, female pattern hair loss is caused by the actions of two enzymes: aromatase (found predominately in women), and 5-alpha-reductase (found in both men and women). In many cases, there is no clear etiology for the hair loss in women and an experienced physician should perform a thorough workup. There are several causes of hair loss in women such as thyroid or iron deficiency, hormone imbalances, gynecologic conditions such as polycystic ovary disease, or stress. In some cases, a scalp biopsy may need to be done for the diagnosis.

The pattern of hair loss in women tends to be more diffuse than men. The Ludwig scale is typically used to classify hair loss patterns in women. Additionally, some women develop significant hair loss in the frontotemporal angles, which limits them from pulling their hair back.

Type I: Hair loss is so mild at this stage that many women are unaware it has occurred. The visible hairline is usually unaffected.

Type II: In this stage, hair loss becomes more moderate and noticeable. Women might experience an increase in shedding and thinning of the hair.

Type III: Hair thinning is more difficult to camouflage at this stage as hair loss becomes more severe. Unfortunately, women with this stage of hair loss may not be good candidates for surgery.



Eyebrows transplant 

Eyebrow transplantation surgery is growing in popularity among men and women. While the most common cause of eyebrow hair loss is over-plucking, it may also be due to scarring, electrolysis, or laser hair removal. During the eyebrow transplantation procedure, modern follicular unit technology enhances or restores the eyebrows permanently with natural and undetectable results.

This aesthetic outpatient procedure takes place over a few short hours in the Meraki hair transplant & skin clinic custom-built surgery suite and is performed under local anesthesia. Donor hair is selected carefully from elsewhere on the head to mimic the characteristics of the native eyebrows.

Single hair units are then dissected under high magnification stereoscopic microscopes by trained technicians and transplanted by Dr. Gabel into tiny recipient sites along the brow line. The eyebrows are one of the most expressive facial features and can convey a variety of emotions.

Considerable attention to detail must be given to the placement, angle, and direction of hair growth to aesthetically frame the eyes and give symmetry to the face to create a natural appearing eyebrow.

As with any medical procedure, it is important that the patient discuss his or her goals directly with the physician who will conduct the procedure and is confident in the surgeon’s credentials. During a personal consultation with our consultant, the eyebrow transplantation procedure and the postoperative expectations and guidance are thoroughly discussed.

To help guide the patient through the post-operative stage, detailed instructions are provided. Slight redness and swelling at the transplanted site are not uncommon immediately after the procedure, and discomfort is usually minimal. In fact, many patients return to work the following day.

The recipient areas on the brow line form small crusts that last for five to ten days. Once these crusts fall off, all signs of the procedure are virtually undetectable. The relocated hairs will begin to shed after two weeks but will re-grow permanently in approximately three months. The new eyebrows will require periodic trimming as it is tends to be hair native to the scalp, and a full cosmetic result can be expected after twelve months
