Methods of Hair Transplant in Iran
In Iran, hair transplant is performed in several ways, the most common of which are FUT (follicular unit transplantation) and FUE (follicular unit extraction).

The back of the scalp, which is the least likely to go bald, is generally chosen as the donor area. This surgery is done under local anesthesia and is the best option for those who suffer from crown baldness.
- 2. FUE or follicular transfer: the only difference between this method and the previous one is that in FUE, the follicle grafts are removed directly from the donor site and the skin of the scalp is not removed. Generally, the physicians in Iran recommend this method to those who lost hair on top of their head. It is noteworthy that this method causes less scar and has a shorter recovery period.
