Hair loss is a very common problem that can affect the age group across the spectrum. When conservative management is not giving benefit and the indication is there then Hair Transplant comes into the picture. Hair transplant is a surgical procedure for hair restoration for men and women. The hair transplant procedure restores hair by transplanting grafts (hair follicles) from the donor area to the bald area (recipient area). Grafts or hair follicles can be extracted using two methods FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation).
In FUE, the doctor takes individual follicles from the donor area and transplants them to the bald area. For the extraction, micro punches are used. This is a relatively painless procedure. This method has a faster recovery and for the people who don`t want cuts, stitches on the scalp and wants to have hairstyles of short hair.
In FUT, the doctor or surgeon cut a strip of scalp from the donor area and dissect them into individual grafts under magnification. There may be a feeling of tightness on the scalp. There will be a visible linear scar.
Now the question arises if hair transplant is a permanent solution to hair loss? The answer is yes, Hair transplant is permanent if it is done on the healthy scalp and the patient is not suffering from any other medical disorder causing hair loss. The permanent hair-bearing area or the donor area is resistant to DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) which is the hormone responsible for hair loss. DHT plays a vital role in male pattern baldness. Once after recovery, the hair will remain in the same place for the rest of one`s life.

Hair transplant is the only way to stop blading. Hair transplant is the medical procedure used to treat hair loss and balding. The result from a hair transplant is not necessarily permanent. The hair transplant will follow the behavior of where the hair came from, this will in most cases mean the hair should continue to grow, as it did in the donor area.

Yes, hair transplant is the permanent solution for hair loss. Basically, the results of hair transplant depend upon the intensity of hair. if the patient has better donor area then surely results will be expedient and permanent.

Yes for the majority of people it is because transplant hair is taken from the safe zone and not affected by DHT, however there are a small number of men who eventually loose some of their transplanted hair when they get old due to their safe zone donor hair thinning as part of the ageing process. Fortunately for most this is when they get to a pretty old age.

Yes,Hair Transplant is permanent solution for baldness.Hair transplant is a successful procedure for regaining your hair back. It's been discovered worldwide that over 85% hair grafts that is planted are successful.After hair transplant you will never loose your newly transplanted hairs again, throughout your life.And the reason is very simple.Any human being does not loses hair from back side of head.Those hairs are permanent in nature.In medical terms we call those hairs as DHT resistant hair or hormone resistant hair.And in any hair transplant surgery hair roots are taken from back side of head and planted to bald area.That's why hair transplant is permanent solution for baldness.

Hair transplant for me is a great medical choice to treat Hair Loss. But another great one, less invasive and that you should try before a transplant (before and after actually) is Laser therapy. I think u would like this video:

Nope, It's Not, hair transplant is one of the ideal solutions to restore natural hair back for bald people. But If it is hair loss and thinning hair problem then there are many options even for bald people also. I witness how my elder brother reverses his hair loss without a hair transplant. At the initial stage, he was tried many things for hair loss problem. Like home remedies and natural ways. But the result quite ineffective than the hassle. Then he ends up with hair support system called amplixin. In 3 months he started to see the positive result. Now he has fuller head hair.

Hi
I agree with majority of your views and being one who underwent FUE a year ago, i would add a few cents of my opinion.It is permanent only if you follow the post surgery medication to the "T", like taking the vitamin tablets, applying minoxidil or whichever solution prescribed by the doctor twice a day etc etc.I have updated my day to day progress pictorially in my blog below, do check to get a good idea of the various stages that scalp goes through
