The permissibility of Hair Transplants

Q. Is it permissible to undergo a hair transplant for one who is bald?

A. A hair transplant entails the restoration of hair by redistributing hair from areas of high density to areas that are bald. It does not involve distortion to the human that is prohibited in Shariah.

Therefore, it would be permissible for one to undergo a hair transplant if there is a need for it or if they have psychological or social difficulties due to baldness. (Fataawa Darul Uloom Zakariyya 7/337)
