Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Introducing IHT or IFUE. It’s a pioneering unique new technique for better survival of hair grafts and better results for hair transplant. As you know if a finger is cut, it loses its blood supply and it will die soon unless it is fixed back. If a fish is taken out of the water, it has to put back into the water as soon as possible or it will die. Similarly hair follicle have their blood supply. Once we take out from back of a donor’s scalp, it loses its blood supply, oxygen and nutrition. It may die soon in whatever solutions it is kept. So what IHT offers is, we take out the hair follicles and implant it simultaneously, so that out of body time of the hair follicles are dramatically reduced outside the scalp. So they are put back into the environment where they belong so that they can get their best supply of oxygen nutrition as soon as possible, and the survival of hair graft increases dramatically.

1st phase of hair grafts extraction and implantation
Hair transplant surgery begins with injections of local anesthesia into the donor scalp area at the back of your head. The anesthesia will ensure that you feel minimal pain, except few pricks to numb the area. Once the area is numbed, hair grafts extraction will start.
