Are you worried about thinning hair and hair loss? If you have exhausted non-surgical options and if you need help with making hair transplant decision, our experienced Hair transplant surgeons at MEDSTAR will help you with the latest hair transplant options whether, it is FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant), or DHI (Direct Hair Transplant) for safe and long lasting results.
Three out of four men and one in four women experience hair loss leading to lower confidence and discomfort in social interactions. Hair loss can be caused by several reasons including genetic and hormonal reasons and can lead to bald patches in both men and women if not treated in time. The permanent solution to bald patches is the surgical hair transplant procedure.
At MEDSTAR, we provide both FUE- Follicular Unit Extraction and FUT- Follicular Unit Transplant procedures as the long-lasting treatment for bald patches on the scalp. Both procedures help in achieving desired results safely with the help of the transplant of healthy hair follicles to bald areas.

Ethnic groups from Africa have what is called Afro-textured hair, or, kinky hair. These hair types are also common among certain populations from South East Asia. The key characteristic of these hair types is that the hair grows in a helical pattern making traditional Hair Transplant techniques like FUE difficult to perform. For hair types 3A to 4B, our doctors recommend using FUT, which gives very good results.
