What Is Hair Transplant or Hair Implantation?

What is Hair Transplant

It is a fact that hair has a great impact on beauty. For this reason, the popularity of hair transplants is growing day by day. Hair transplantation is a cosmetic procedure as well as a treatment for hair loss. In Iran, it is done in various ways. The basis of all hair transplantation methods is removing hair from the donation area and implanting it back in the hairless area. 

Hair loss can be due to:

  • The pattern of male pattern baldness called androgenic alopecia (the most common cause);
  • Inflammatory diseases of the scalp;
  • Head injuries; such as burns, surgeries and car accidents that can create areas with permanent baldness on your head.

Although not as effective as hair transplant, there are other methods to improve hair density:



This is a common solution used for both men and women. The results appear after a few months of usage but minoxidil does not guarantee hair growth.

LLLT (low-level light therapy)

Laser therapy is used in this method. There is evidence that LLLT enhances hair growth; but it is not fruitful for everyone.

Various Methods of Hair Transplant in Iran

SUT hair transplantation

As previously mentioned, there are different methods for hair transplantation. Some of them are:

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)

FUT hair transplant

This is one of the oldest methods of hair transplantation also known as strip hair transplantation. In this procedure, the physician removes a thin strip of your scalp containing hair follicles from the donation site and, after dividing it into smaller sections, implants them in the desired areas. Here, the number of displaced follicles is high, it is faster than other methods and is less expensive. Due to the type of hair follicles removed in this method, the wound from the donation site is visible after the operation, which of course will be covered under the hair at the implant site.

FIT Hair Transplant (Follicular Isolation Technique)


This method is known as FUE (Follicular unit extraction) worldwide which means the extraction of follicular units. In FUE, as the name implies, the doctor removes hair follicles as granules or units and then implants them again.

This technic requires a highly skilled doctor. At Medpaltrip, we provide such physicians for your services. The recovery period of this method is shorter than the FUT method, however, it takes longer to perform. Most doctors and candidates currently prefer this method over FUT.

SUT Hair Transplantation


In this method, which is based on the FIT hair transplantation method, the dermatologist uses automatic devices to remove and transplant hair follicles individually or in a single unit. SUT is faster than FIT and is less damaging to the displaced follicles.

BHT Hair Transplant

BHT is also based on the FIT method, with the difference being that instead of using the hair reserve on the back of the head, the doctor uses other parts of the body such as the beard, back and chest. This method is useful for people who do not have a proper hair bank on the back of their head.

Who Is Eligible for Hair Transplant?

Hair transplantation is suitable in the following cases:

  • Men who have been losing hair for more than 5 years with male pattern.
  • Those that like to look younger and have lost their hair for years and their baldness pattern has been proven.
  • Anyone who has lost their hair due to injuries such as burns.
  • Men and women who have lost their hair due to surgery such as face stretching.

There is generally no age limit for hair transplants; however, doctors prefer to perform hair transplants between the ages of 25 and 55 due to the following:

  1. At this age, the trend of future hair loss can be predicted as it affects hair transplantation;
  2. Baldness has only occurred in certain areas and the person still has the right hair bank for the transplant.

Dermatologists do not recommend hair transplants prior to the age of 25 due to the uncertainty of the hair loss trend.

Key Factors in The Transplantation Process

Hair Color

Hair color is one of the most important factors in the hair transplant process. The baldness in people with high contrast between their hair and scalp color, is more visible.

Hair Density

The density of hair is also a key factor affecting hair transplantation. People with high hair density especially in the donor areas, which is usually the back of the head, are good candidates for hair transplants.

Hair Texture

People with curly hair usually get better results; as curly hair appears fuller.

Hair Thickness

People with thicker hair need fewer follicles for transplantation. This is because light passes less through thicker hair, making baldness less noticeable.

Flexibility of The Scalp (Scalp Consistency)

Hair follicles are more difficult to separate in people with harder scalp than in people with softer skin.

In general, all the above factors are effective in a beautiful hair transplant.

Advantages of Hair Transplant in Iran

  • Implanted hair will grow normally;
  • It lasts a lifetime;
  • Appears exactly like the original hair;
  • Short recovery period;
  • It is painless;
  • Boosts self-confidence;
  • Covers areas left by injuries.

Pre-Treatment Preparation

Pre Treatment Preparation
  • Do not smoke for at least 24 hours before your procedure. However, due to the negative impact of smoking on the recovery process, the longer this time is, the better the results will get.
  • It is recommended to avoid alcoholic beverages for at least 3 days before the treatment as it prolongs the recovery period.
  • It is best to inform your doctor if you are taking anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin, blood pressure medications, antidepressants and blood thinners at least 2 weeks before hair transplantation.
  • Do not take multivitamins for at least 2 weeks before surgery; They often prevent the natural healing process.
  • Grow your hair. This makes it easier for the doctor to remove the follicles and also covers the wounds at the donation site.
  • Massage your head for 20 minutes daily in the days before surgery to help make the scalp softer and improves blood circulation.

How Is It Done?

how Hair Transplant done

For hair transplantation, doctors use small or larger grafts which the experts cut into small pieces. They will then implant these grafts in the desired location on the head. The removed grafts often have different sizes, shapes and numbers. Spot grafts typically contain 10 to 15 hair follicles and can get to 1 or 2 in numbers. Incisional grafts contain 4 to 10 hair follicles which your dermatologist implants into the split ends of the head. The tape grafts, which are narrow and long, contain 30 to 40 hair follicles after they are cut.

In general, depending on the treatment method, several sessions may be required to achieve the desired result. The number of grafts required per session varies from person to person but on average, each candidate requires 50 grafts for large grafts and about 700 grafts for small grafts. Our doctors in Medpaltrip will provide the necessary advice at all stages.

Aftercare for Successful Hair Grow


Procedure Day (aftercare)

  • On the night after the operation, remove the bandage and dressing.
  • Take antibiotics and painkillers.
  • When sleeping, sleep so that the grafted area does not come in contact with the pillow (donation area is not a problem).

First to Third Day

  • In the morning after the operation, wash the donor site with lukewarm water and remove the clots.
  • Every two hours, spray the transplant site with the solutions given to you by your doctor.

Fourth and Fifth Day

  • Rinse your entire head with lukewarm, very gentle water for 15 to 20 minutes. Dry your head with a towel if necessary. Be sure to do this gently and gently and do not pull the towel over your head in any way.

Sixth Day

  • To rinse the graft site, first soak your head for 15 to 20 minutes. Then wash the graft site with baby shampoo and gentle finger movements and remove the existing scales.
  • Do this on a daily basis until no shell is left in place.
  • Do not peel. As the scales are removed, the upper parts of the transplanted hairs may also be removed. But there is no need to worry; Because the transplanted follicles remain in place and continue to grow.

Long Term Help

Visible hair may fall out after 1 to 4 weeks, but the follicles in the area grow after 5 to 6 months.

  • In case of bleeding, apply sterile gauze for 15 minutes and see your doctor if it lasts more than 30 minutes.
  • Use more pillows to raise your head at bedtime for up to 3 days after the treatment.
  • You may experience sweating on your forehead on the third or fourth day after the operation. We  recommend applying cold compress 2-3 times a day for 15 minutes.
  • Avoid swimming for 3 weeks after hair transplantation.
  • In the first month after hair transplantation, avoid exposure to direct sunlight. You can use sunscreen or a hat. If you use a hat, make sure  your head receives air circulation and that it is not worn tightly.
  • In the first days after the operation, it is better to rest for 3 to 4 days.
  • Do not comb your hair for 7 days after the operation.
  • Avoid scratching the graft site.
  • Do not smoke for at least 2 weeks after your operation.
  • Let your head be exposed to the air.

Side Effects of Hair Restoration

Hair transplantation does not have many complications. The most common side effect is the wound that occurs. Other symptoms include pain, itching, sweating, inflammation of the hair follicles, bleeding, and loss of sensation, usually improve after 15 days.
