As cosmetic surgeries have become increasingly available, gone are the days when you could just wish to have a certain appearance. Baldness is the main thing men would like to change. Hair Transplant is becoming the top most popular procedure to treat baldness.
Hair transplant is a cosmetic surgical permanent procedure for the treatment of baldness. The advancement in hair transplant has also made it possible to treat scarce eyebrows or beard.
The hair follicle is harvested from the donor area where the hair is healthy and DHT resistant. These follicles are transplanted to the regions of baldness where they grow naturally like existing hair. The donor area is usually the back of the scalp, and the area is then sutured in a way that the surrounding hair covers it.
If the process of FUT is used, then a strip of skin is removed from the back of the scalp. The strip is cut into pieces and re-grafted into the benefactor region. However, in FUE, the individual hair follicle is removed from the scalp directly rather from the strip and placed into the region of the bald area.
This technique avoids scarring and also ensures that the transplanted hair in a natural pattern. Both these procedures are carried out under local anesthesia with an average of 2500 hair follicles being transplanted into the region. The healing time is usually around one to two weeks.
If you are facing continuous hair fall and if the hair loss is not at a stable stage then you may require more than one session. As the transplanted hair follicles are not subject to hair loss process, therefore, results of the hair transplant are permanent, but it does not prevent the hair follicles to fall which are not transplanted. Therefore you might be required another session after five to eight years to counter the hair loss progress.
The procedure of hair transplant starts off with the trimming hair. Without trimming the surgeon does not have direct access to the donor areas and the extraction of donor areas would not be possible. In some conditions only the donor area is trimmed but mostly the entire scalp is trimmed using a trimmer. Therefore you need to come with certain hair length before the procedure.
The results are permanent but not instant. The procedure takes about five to eight hours to complete in case of FUE hair transplant. The full growth of transplanted hair is seen in eight to nine months’ time. The transplanted hair fall out after four weeks but new hair grows, it is natural and not something to worry about. You need patience for the whole process of transplantation, aftercare, healing, and follicle recovery.
