What is a Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant is a surgical technique that involves moving hair follicles from one part of the body to another.

Methods of hair transplant varies from extending scalp to increase the area of hair growth, to transferring individual hair follicles to desirable areas.
Hair strands that have been moved to another part of the same person’s body continue to grow looking natural, with very little side effects.

■ Hair Transplant

Human hair grow in groups of 1~4 strands from each follicle, which are called “follicular units.”
50% of Koreans usually grow two hair strands from each follicle, 30% one per follicle, and those with three to four strands per follicle consist of 20% of the population.
This knowledge has made follicular unit-based hair transplants a popular practice these days.


Follicular Unit Hair Implant VS Single Hair Implant
Implantation of follicular units

Implanting as packages with multiple hair strands from each Follicle intact.

  1. 1 . Minimal damage on follicles leads to higher chance of a successful implant.
  2. 2 . Follicular units also hold follicles in resting phrase, which may increase the amount of hair by 10%.
  3. 3 . Concentrated implantation of 3~4 strands results in hair to look fuller.
  4. 4 . More follicles can be implanted at once.
  5. 5 . Transplanted hair looks natural growing from normal pores.
Single Hair Implant

Implantation of single hair strands that are separated from their natural groups.

Damaging follicles during the separation process lowers their survivability and slows down hair growth.
