Hair loss is one of the major causes of low morale among the people. It can happen to anyone at any age. There are many factors responsible for hair loss. While some factors, like poor lifestyle, can be dealt with, others, such as genetics, are naturally occurring and cannot be controlled. When it comes to hair transplant, people have several doubts regarding it. Going for a hair transplant can be a tough call to make. Rest assured, the Dr. Saraswat’s Skin and Hair Clinics situated in Mumbai is the name you can rely upon.

We offer many types of hair transplant surgeries, along with many hair restoration techniques. FUE (follicular unit extraction) is one of the two main methods used for hair transplant. It requires removing individual hair follicles from the area where there is fuller hair, usually the back of the head or the sides of the head, also referred to as the donor site, and transplanting it to the area where hair is needed to be transplanted, or the recipient site. The hair is extracted with the help of a punch tool.


There are several advantages of having an FUE hair transplant over the follicular unit transplantation (FUT). One among them is that it leaves no linear scar behind, since it does not involve harvesting a strip of tissue, which is the case in FUT. Instead, FUE forms multiple circular scars spread across a large area. FUE is beneficial for those who like to wear their hair short. In such a case, having a linear scar can be noticeable. The FUE method is also less invasive, hence, decreasing the chances of damage to nerves.

One of the main disadvantages of FUE is that follicles can be more easily damaged. Furthermore, So getting hair transplant from experienced hair transplant surgeon is required.

When it comes to the cost of the procedure, the amount of money you spent on FUE is comparatively more than FUT.

Having mentioned all that, only a surgeon can help you decide which process will be beneficial for your hair, depending upon the density of your hair and need. Our team at the Harleys Hair Transplant Clinic considers your needs and offers the best-possible advice before carrying out the procedure.
