Hair transplant has become a very common and "safe procedure" with predictable outcome in the hands of "qualified and right speciality" surgeons.
There is mushrooming of many centres offering hair transplant surgery. Mind it, it is a surgery and should be opted only under care of qualified and trained surgeons. It is advisable to check for the qualification and degree of the surgeon operating upon you. It is very important to meet the person who is going to operate you before surgery and get consultation directly from surgeon rather than any non medical person, as in many centres pts get councelled by marketing people and you meet the person operating upon you directly in the operation theatre. Do your research, personally visit two centres. Understand their way for doing procedure and results. Opt for the centre where you develop trust and found that surgery will be performd under a qualified surgeon. Right speciality to perform this surgery is MCh Plastic surgery. Dermatologists can also perform this surgery if they are specifically trained to do so.
Your hair line design is very important, it should be desiged considering your facial height and width, shape of your scalp, and tendency for further hair loss.
In this procedure hairs are taken from the back of your scalp which are not sensitive to homones of body and are considered permanant. As hair roots from permamant zone of scalp are not prone to get lost under effect of hormones therefore transplanted hairs from this zone can last for 15 years or more or lifetime.
Hair tansplant does not stop tendency for further hair loss hence to maintain a good result it is important that you follow the advice given by your surgeon. some simple harmless medications, without risk of any side effect are avaiable and one should not be fearful or apprehensive about using them. These medications are are not at all coslty.
It is advisable that you give importance to your safety, results, qualification and experience of your surgeon over considering cost only as a parameter to select the centre.
we as a society have not grown enough to undrstand the psychological aspects of any disease or body deformity. Some people still bully or criticise people with hair loss. I request them to not to take this issue lightly or pass unwanted comments. It is a very sensitive issue. We see many patients loosing their confidence and are actually into depression due to alopecia. Hair transplantation is a wonderful procedure to give new life to those having any such issues. We do not consider it as a cosmetic surgery meant for actors or models but it is actually a life changing surgery for the common man for restoration of their self image. This surgery helps them to come out of any depression and get their confidence back.This procedure is opted not only for above mentioned reasons but also for social reasons as before planning for marriage or selecting their life partners. Many oder age people areopt fot it after their 40s or 50s as they feel that they have done everyrhing for their family till date and now they are finding time for themselves and want to do something for the joy and satisfaction of themselves. Therefore we see patients from age group of early twentees to late fiftees are opting for it and are enjoying and flaunting their new look. There are good centres for hair transplant in Pune.
Authentic Hair Transplant & Aesthetic Centre is one such Centre in Pune, where we strire to give the best possible Hair Transplant & Hair Loss Treatments.

Hair Transplantation is an advanced technique of restoring hairs on bald or scantly haired parts on head by totally different techniques like FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) & FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).
FUE- Follicular Unit Extraction
It is a new advanced technique of extracting individual grafts from the scalp and involves a small round punch device of 0.75 to 1 mm size to extract individual Follicular Units from a patient’s bald or resistant donor area using a specialized low-torque motorized machine. These Follicular Unit Grafts are then transplanted into the patient’s bald area. The wound is less than 1 mm in diameter and therefore heals rapidly with no scarring and stitch marks. FUE technique enables the creation of larger donor pools by taking follicles from beard and chest.
Due to a lack of linear scars (as are associated with traditional Follicular Hair Transplantation of strip method or FUT), FUE is much less invasive in nature and potentially has a faster healing time. For the same reason, the popularity and demand for FUE has increased significantly over the last several years.
FUT– Follicular Unit Transplantation
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a procedure involving transplanting hair from the more hairy regions of the body, also called ‘permanent zones’- this includes the area at the back and sides of the scalp where hair is more resistant to balding. This is accomplished by transplanting of 1 to 4 hairs called Follicular Units into the hairless portion.
After the patient’s scalp anesthetized, the strip of tissue from the donor area (i.e. the region within the permanent zone) is removed and is then cut into many individual Follicular Units using Microscopic Dissection Techniques. As these Follicular Unit grafts are being prepared, some tiny holes in the scalp are made (called recipient sites) to place the grafts.
FUT is an advanced form of older Hair Transplantation procedure because it uses smaller grafts to give a natural look. In a Follicular Unit Transplant, the results will mimic the hair growth in a natural way and will be undetectable as a by-product of synthetic process.
Beard Transplant (Facial Hair Transplant)
Facial hair loss, patchy spots or uneven growth of beard are some common issues that men are facing nowadays and it underlines the regularity of putting up an unkempt appearance even in the most groomed men. This may also have happened due to a prior incident that had detrimentally affected the hair growth or due to a genetic patterns of hair growth.
The most obvious solution to this problem is creating a perfect full beard. Undergoing a facial hair transplant provides the ability to grow and maintain moustache or beard or side burn, thereby creating a very manly appearance. This cosmetic procedure is capable of changing the look of your face and providing sharp lines for a natural appearance. Beard Transplant provides the permanent solution for the problems like:
Sparse facial hair.
Patchiness or any facial scars.
Partial facial hair transplant.
Body Hair Transplant (BHT)
It is an advanced surgical procedure for hair restoration and comes as a blessing for people who have poor donor areas and have consequently been discouraged by most clinics as ‘poor candidates’ for hair transplantation.
BHT is based on a concept of harvesting hair from those parts of the body where the hair are abundant, like beard, chest, shoulders, stomach, arms and legs. These hair are then transplanted into the scalp and result in longer, thicker and naturally growing hair.
