Here are some frequently asked questions in
Density Hair Transplant Centre

Does hair transplantation really work?

Yes. The transplanted hair is removed from back of the scalp (donor site) and transferred to bald site (recipient site).

The transferred tissue is not “rejected” as it is not foreign tissue. The transplanted hair maintains it’s own characteristics; colour, texture, growth rate, and curl, after transplantation and re-growth.

The vitality of the grafted follicle is maintained by the rich blood supply to the scalp.


Are there any complications with hair transplantation?

No surgery is with out any complications. You will be given a detailed consent sheet with a full list of complications which you will have to sign prior to the procedure. You are welcome to ask for any clarifications on any doubt you may have.

However, the complications are extremely rare and the procedure very safe.

Remember: This is an operation in skin only, reaching up to a depth of only 5 ms.

You will be given analgesics to prevent pain and antibiotics to prevent infection. Mild swelling of forehead may be noticed after the surgery, which can be easily controlled with ice packs or anti-inflammatory drugs. Allergy to local anesthetic, infection of operated site, delayed healing, delayed hair growth can happen rarely.

How long does it take for the transplanted hair to grow?

Typically the grafted hair will shed in the initial 2-4 weeks. New growth will begin in 3-4 months and length will increase approximately 1/2 inch per month.

A full cosmetic result can be expected in 9-10 months.

How long does the operation take?

It depends on the area of baldness and the number of grafts required.

Hair transplantations are classified as:

  • Small sessions: up to 1300 grafts. These take about 3.5 hours.
  • Medium sessions: 1300-2000 grafts. These last about 4 to 5 hours
  • Large or mega sessions: more than 2000 grafts per session. These last longer; from 5-6 hours

Our team at the Density is capable of grafting up to 3000 grafts in one session.

What are the post-operative instructions?
