Hair is a big part of a person’s identity. The amount and quality of hair can affect one’s personality immensely. However, due to many reasons, men start facing hair loss problems at various ages. If you are one of them and are worrying too, then you can stop! Hair replacement is here in Nepal.
Hair replacement in Nepal has become very popular as it provides a brilliant opportunity to gain back hair permanently. These days, non-surgical processes are available for an even more relaxed experience. In this blog, we shall discuss everything there is to know about hair replacement in Nepal.

Male pattern baldness
Male pattern baldness, also known as alopecia is the most common reason for hair loss in men. It occurs due to a hormone called DHT which targets hair roots and affects their ability to grow back. It is common for all men and women to lose about 100 to 150 hairs every day but alopecia caused an increased permanent hair loss, which causes hair thinning, and eventually balding. 

Alopecia is generally characterized by different grades. As you can see below, the first symptoms start with a receding hairline and a growing circular patch in the back. With continued hair loss, balding becomes more evident. 

The further stage the hair loss is, the number of grafts needs to be transplanted and the cost of the hair replacement also increases accordingly.

What techniques of hair replacement are available in Nepal?

Hair replacement follows a basic principle where healthy growing hair is extracted from certain parts of the body and transplanted in balding areas. Hair replacement in Nepal can be done in following different ways

  • FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant): It is a traditional method. A strip is removed from where healthy hair is growing. Hair roots are extracted from the strip and then transplanted into the thinning areas. Scalp heals in a week or two but leaves an easily perceptible scar.  Rate Death of hair grafts is also high. This form is becoming less and less common and is not highly recommended throughout the world.
  • FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction): It is also known as one removal method. Here, the hair grafts are extracted individually, stored in a chemical solution, and then transplanted into the recipient areas. The site heals without any visible scars. However, during the storage, one to two percent of the hair grafts die every hour. Since the storage is generally for 3-6 hours, the hair loss rate is quite high.
  • DHT (Direct Hair Transplant): This process is an advanced version of the FUE where the grafts are harvested and transplanted simultaneously. This means that once the hair is extracted from the donor area, it is transplanted to the recipient areas within a few minutes. This is the biggest difference in the DHT method which results in other advantages like:
    – There is 100% graft survival with no heat or chemical damage to the hair
    – The process is virtually painless and scarless
    – Healing is also much faster in this process
    – It is carried out in a sitting position which provides a better angle for the insertion of hair grafts, and providing better results eventually

In Nepal, hair replacement or hair transplant is advertised under many different names. However, these are the three basic types known to the world and any other name is either the same processor slight insignificant alterations to them.
