Hair Transplants

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) I am a cosmetic dermatologist in USA. I perform hair transplantation for beauty purposes. Please let me know what Islam says about this kind of treatment. [Dr. Munir]

A.) Generally it is understood that hair transplantation is the redistribution of your naturally growing hair. Hair follicles growing in areas of greater density at the back of the head are transplanted to areas that are bald. If balding is regarded as a defect, then this method of transplant will be permissible. There have been reports from some patients who have not found the transplant successful. It is therefore advisable if patients consult an experienced dermatologist and seek out alternative methods. One such alternative method is treating the hair [including the bald areas] with some type of hair-growing cream or ointment. This would be preferred to undergoing transplant surgery.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
