Also known as Hair Restoration or Hair Transplantation - the surgical process of moving hair follicles from one part of the body, rich in hair (known as a donor site) and embedding them at the recipient site (the bald area).
It is a minimally invasive procedure, performed under local anesthetic only and is most commonly used to treat male baldness but the technique can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair and to fill in scars. The procedure usually lasts between 4 and 8 hours, depending on the number of grafts.

What's the success rate like and are there any side effects?
When performed properly by an experienced doctor, hair transplant surgeries are extremely successful, with success rates around 95%. When patient reviews talk of side effects, a common term is Shock Loss, this is where the patient can experience temporary hair thinning, but generally, only 5% of patients will experience any issues post-op.
How does a Hair Transplant work?
The two most common techniques used are the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):
1. FUT, also referred to as FUSS (Follicular Unit Strip Surgery), involves the removal of a strip of skin from the back of the head containing lots of hair follicles, which is stitched up and hidden by the surrounding hair. Then the strip of follicles is divided into 500-2,000 tiny grafts containing just a few hairs. These are then embedded across the bald area of the head.
2. FUE does not require a strip of skin to be removed, instead the hair follicles are individually removed from the donor site and positioned across the bald area in tiny slits created by a scalpel or needle.
Japan is special in its own way; the culture, food, people, as well as the technology are envied by the world over. With old Japan, comes the ancient traditions in form of a geisha performance, onsen (hot spring) visit in the mountains, tea ceremony or shrine visit. In contrast, there is the modern Japan, full of smart systems and electronics, colorful advertisements and displays and ultra-modern architecture. In recent years, Japan has become one of the top destinations in the world for oncology treatments and sees many tens of thousands of medical tourists each year. Many of these travel from within the region, including China and Korea, but they are unable to compete with the SE Asian nations with prices. Private hospitals are located across the country, with particular focus in the major cities like Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. 25 of these facilities are JCI-accredited, with many offering Hair Transplant procedures.
