No doubt that hair loss is one of the most upsetting things that could happen in a person’s life. People who suffer from severe fast hair loss look way older than those with the same age with no hair loss. This could cause depression and lack of self-confidence. That’s because they think having hair equals beauty, youth and self-confidence. Hair loss can have many different causes such as hormone imbalance, blood pressure, thyroid or it can be in your genes. In such cases people go for the best solution and the only permanent one, hair transplant surgery.

It’s a type of surgery that moves hair you already have to fill an area with thin or no hair. Surgeons have been doing these transplants in the U.S. since the 1950 s, but techniques have changed a lot in recent years. Hair transplant is a common surgical procedure performed to obtain this goal, that is to fill areas with thin or no hair.
Hair follicles are moved from a part of the body, called “donor site”, to a bald or balding part, called “recipient site”. Mainly it treats male pattern baldness, and it also can be applied for beard, mustache, and even eyebrow.
There are three main techniques for performing hair transplant. They include Follicular Isolation Technique (FIT), Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) also known as Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS).
You usually have the procedure in the doctor’s office and your doctor will choose one of two methods for the transplant: follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) or follicular unit extraction (FUE).
Low cost of this surgery and qualified expert physicians are two major reasons for this choice. Hair transplant is a common cosmetic procedure in Iran.
With highly-experienced hair transplant surgeons and state-of-the-art technologies used in hospitals and cosmetic clinics across the country (largely based in major cities such as Tehran, Mashhad, Shiraz, Tabriz, Isfahan, Kish, etc.) coupled with affordable prices and high quality medical tourism services, Iran is prepared to offer foreign hair transplant candidates a very enjoyable experience of hair restoration treatment.
The cost of a hair transplant procedure in Iran is one of the lowest among countries that offer high-quality procedures as well as other health tourism services.
The low cost of hair transplant in Iran serves as another strong incentive, motivating candidates from all over the world to choose Iran as their destination. As is the case with lots of other cosmetic treatments and surgeries, the costs of hair transplant, compared to most countries both in the Middle East region and in other parts of the world, are considerably more reasonable.
The FUT and FUE hair transplant cost in Iran is around $1,000 to 1,500, while the same procedures in the United States cost much higher, $6,000 to $16,000 and it can range from $4,000 to $16,000 in Europe.
Hair transplant is without anesthesia but the person undergoing this surgery would not feel any pain on head while hairs are being transplanted. Hair transplant in Iran is conducted in different ways but in all of them natural viable hair is transplanted. Iranian physicians have a lot of experience in this field because there are a large number of volunteers for hair transplantation. Every year a lot of Europeans come to Iran to undergo this surgery.
Follicular unit transplant (FUT) is the traditional hair transplant method which involves extracting a linear strip of hair bearing skin from the back or the side of the scalp. The strip is then dissected to separate individual grafts.
With FUSS, the surgeon removes a 6- to 10-inch strip of skin from the back of your head. He sets it aside and sews the scalp closed. This area is immediately hidden by the hair around it.
Next, the surgeon’s team divides the strip of removed scalp into 500 to 2,000 tiny grafts, each with an individual hair or just a few hairs. The number and type of graft you get depends on your hair type, quality, color, and the size of the area where you’re getting the transplant.
If you’re getting the FUE procedure, the surgeon’s team will shave the back of your scalp. Then, the physician will remove hair follicles one by one from there. The area heals with small dots, which your existing hair will cover.
After that point, both procedures are the same.
After he prepares the grafts, the surgeon cleans and numbs the area where the hair will go, creates holes or slits with a scalpel or needle, and delicately places each graft in one of the holes. He’ll probably get help from other team members to plant the grafts, too.
Depending on the size of the transplant you’re getting, the process will take about 4 to 8 hours. You might need another procedure later on if you continue to lose hair or decide you want thicker hair.
