Hair Transplant In Nepal

Hair transplantation in Nepal is increasingly popular due to advancements in medical technology, skilled surgeons, and cost-effective treatment options for hair loss, hair thinning, and hair baldness problems.

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure that involves the extraction and implantation of your hair follicles. It is one of the most preferred solutions for hair loss or baldness. Generally, the transplant procedure is divided into three parts: extracting follicles, harvesting grafts, and implantation.

The result of a hair transplant is a permanent hair restoration. Expert dermatologists and a team of technicians do hair transplant surgery.


Hair follicles: Hair follicles are tube-like structures found in the skin that produce hair. It is essential for hair growth and generating new hair. It undergoes a continuous cycle of growth, rest, and shedding known as the hair growth cycle. There are more than 100 thousand follicles on your head.

Grafts: A graft is a strip of skin with 1 to 4 hair follicles.

Graft Survival: The percentage of transplanted grafts that successfully survive and grow hair in the recipient area after a hair transplant procedure.

Donor area: The area of the head with a thick density of hair is called a donor area. It is mostly the side of the head and the back of the head.

Recipient area: The area with no hair is called the recipient area. It’s usually the top of the head or the crown.

FUT: Outdated technique of hair transplant where a patch of scalp is cut out.

FUE: Modern technique for hair transplant using follicular units’ extraction and implantation.

DHI/DHT: Modified version of FUE with added benefits

Bio-DHT: The most advanced version of FUE or DHI/DHI and has the highest effectiveness.

Shock Loss: Temporary shedding of hair in the recipient area following a hair transplant procedure, which is a normal part of the healing process.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): Blood contains growth factors and other bioactive proteins that provide nutrients to the hair and promote its growth. This therapy uses your blood, separates PRP, and injects it into your scalp.

Growth Factor Concentrate (GFC): Like PRP, GFC uses the healing power of your blood. GFC is more advanced than PRP.

Names of medicines: Minoxidil, Finasteride, Dutasteride, Spironolactone, Corticosteroids, Anthralin

The Hair Transplant Surgery

hair transplant process explained

Hair transplant surgery is a very safe procedure and a minor surgery for hair loss.

The surgery is done in 3 steps: extraction of grafts, harvesting grafts, and implantation of grafts. After cleaning your scalp and numbing with local anesthesia the doctor uses the Choi implanter tool to extract follicles from the donor area. Then the grafts are harvested for some time depending on the technique used. After preparing your recipient area with tiny incisions, your hair will be implanted.

A hair transplant surgery takes about 6 to 7 hours a day. Transplanting less than 4000 grafts can be done within a single day. Higher than 4000 grafts require two or more days.

Methods Of Hair Transplantation

FUE method of hair transplantation

These major hair transplant techniques are available in Nepal:


FUE uses a Choi implanter pen to extract hair follicles and harvest them before implanting them in the recipient area. All other methods to treat hair loss (DHT or DHI) are modified versions of FUE.


This is an enhanced version of FUE and hair follicles are harvested for less time before implantation.


This is the best technique for hair transplant in Nepal. It is a better version of DHT where bio-enhanced solution is sprayed during the hair transplantation. With the Bio-DHT technique, the cost of a hair transplant is the most expensive.
