Hair Transplant / Phuket / Bangkok / Thailand
Hair transplantation in Thailand is a very safe, relatively minor surgical procedure. The transplanted hair seen above the scalp will initially be shed, and the roots will remain dormant for 6-12 weeks. After this period, the new hairs will all begin to grow.
Hair transplant in Thailand involves removing a strip of permanent hair-bearing skin from the back or sides of the scalp (donor area) and then, using various techniques, the strip is usually dissected into micro grafts (containing 1-3 hairs) and mini-grafts (containing 3-8 hairs) each. The micro-/mini grafts are then meticulously planted into the bald or thinning area of the scalp (recipient area). The creation of very small micro grafts (follicular units) has allowed very natural, feathered hairlines to be grafted, and avoids an abrupt, "pluggy look," that was typical many years ago. A mini-graft can be used behind the hairline for added density.
Depending on the degree of balding for the frontal area and similarly for the crown area, 1-3 procedures involving several hundred or perhaps 1,500 or more grafts may be required to achieve the desired density (of course, more procedures could be done if hair loss progresses or greater density is desired). Within 24 hours small crusts will form on each graft which are shed in approximately 7-10 days. The grafted hairs will often start to grow by 6-12 weeks after the procedure and will continue to grow for a lifetime.
Best Candidates for Hair Transplant in Thailand
Anyone who has experienced permanent hair loss may be a candidate for hair restoration surgery, including:
Men with male pattern baldness Some women with thinning hair - female pattern thinning People with areas of scarring from injuries or hair loss after face lift procedures People who want to thicken or restore eyebrows, eyelashes, and beards
Surgery Time required: 3–8 hours Anesthesia: Local or twilight anesthesia on an out-patient basis
Post surgical side effects
Minor infections can occur around a newly transplanted hair follicle, similar to an infected ingrown hair or pimple. Minor scars. Patients may experience mild swelling to the forehead area for a few days following surgery and on rare occasions may experience a black eye if the frontal scalp is transplanted.
Recovery time Patients may be asked to use moist compresses or spray and to sleep in a semi-upright position for 2-3 days following the procedure to minimize swelling and bruising. Small crusts may form on each graft that can be camouflaged by any existing hair that can be combed over the recipient area. These crusts will flake off by 10-14 days after the surgery. Numbness that may occur in the donor or recipient area usually disappears in 2-8 months after surgery.

After all of the micrografts have been placed in the scalp, the hair transplantation patient will have stubble in the transplant areas as well as some minor scabbing. The affected scalp should heal rapidly, as should the sutured incision from the donor area. The transplanted hair will fall out after a few weeks, as the hair goes into the resting phase initially. In several months, the hair will start its growing phase again, and the hair should grow at a normal rate. Follicles transplanted during surgical hair restoration are not usually sensitive to the same biological influences as the original follicles in the balding area of the scalp and should therefore produce hair just as they did in the donor area.
The most evident benefit of hair replacement surgery is that it gives the patient a more youthful appearance, which can have a positive influence on both business and social interactions. Hair loss, especially premature hair loss, can make people look older than they are.
Along with an improved appearance, most hair replacement surgery patients achieve improved self-esteem. Most people try to resist aging, especially when the signs of aging seem to come prematurely. The ability to regain a more youthful appearance nearly always makes people feel better about themselves, which, in turn, can improve their outlook on life.
Thanks to advances in surgical techniques, hair replacement can be made permanent though hair transplant surgery, which is becoming increasingly popular as an effective hair restoration procedure. Today, hair transplants look very natural, because the surgeon can better recreate the appearance of a younger scalp. Hair restoration specialists can even perform hair transplant revision for those who are unhappy with the results of a previous hair transplant surgery.
