Depending on the recession of hair line from front backwards (Norwood Hamilton grading of baldness) in males, third to fifth stage of baldness and for females in second or third (Ludwig’s grading)stages of baldness, Hair Transplantation is the most appropriate form of treatment.

TYPES OF HAIR TRANSPLANT
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)
In this process, A strip of skin with hair is removed from the donor site(back & sides of the scalp) and it is then divided micro-surgically. Follicles are then separated from the donor strip carefully. Once that is done, the grafts are inserted into the pre-cut mini and micro-slits at the recipient area of the scalp.
This is one process where large number of grafts (approximately 4000) can be inserted in a single session. The survival rate of the transplanted grafts is high and there is minimal wastage. The hair density is greater and this is a worldwide accepted procedure. Above all, this is a swift process and doesn’t consume much time.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
This is more suitable for small requirement of graft insertion (around 800-1200) and is effective in tight scalps. Here individual follicular units are extracted and inserted in the recipient thinned out areas. There are no sutures or scars involved post this process though it takes time. But on the brighter side, it heals quickly and the process is less invasive causing very less pain.
What is the difference between PRP and HT?
PRP treatment is suggested when baldness in men and women is at an early stage whereas Hair Transplantation is advised only when the baldness quotient is extreme.
Can hairline be re-grown through hair transplantation?
Yes, this is the only known solution for bringing back a hairline and lost hair.
What are the side effects?
A common side effect is a haemorrhage which is noticed during or after the procedure. But this occurs when the surgeon is inexperienced. Oliva doesn’t have this issue thanks to the presence of highly experienced cosmetic surgeons. There could also be other effects such as thinning of hair, itching, scarring, cysts, swelling, bleeding, pain and numbness but all these are temporary.
