Hair Transplant

Hair transplantation is a cosmetic procedure in which grafts of the hair follicles are extracted from the back of the head and then transplanted into the donor or bald area. The procedure is carried out under local anesthesia to ease the discomfort. This treatment results in improved appearance and self-confidence of an individual. The ideal candidates for hair transplantation are men who experience male pattern baldness (hair loss on the scalp), an individual who has a burn and scalp injury and lost hair, and women suffering from female pattern baldness. The treatment involves hair grafting to the frontal, vault, and temporary areas of hair loss by extracting the hair follicles from the back of the scalp.

Causes of hair fall

LHair loss or baldness is also known as alopecia, is one of the major concerns among both men and women. One can experience hair fall due to genetic factors, stress, poor or unhealthy diet, hormonal imbalance during pregnancy, puberty or menopause, etc. Besides this, several medical conditions such as protein deficiency, thyroid, anemia, low vitamin level, and chemotherapy can also result in hair fall or baldness. Hair transplantation is one of the best treatments to reverse the balding issue.

The hair transplantation treatment is performed by two methods:
  • Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
  • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

The follicular unit transplantation method involves cutting out a strip of the scalp skin from the back of the head of the patient. This strip is further divided into tiny grafts that comprise 1 to 4 follicles, which are implanted on the affected area to get natural-looking hair growth. The incision made to cut out the strip is closed with stitches, which often get covered by the hair surrounding. Besides providing natural-looking hair, follicular unit transplantation also benefits in covering large areas of baldness in just one session. The follicular unit transplantation method success rate often depends on the experience of the surgeon carrying out the surgery.

Ideal candidates for the follicular unit transplantation method are:
  • Individuals with larger areas of baldness
  • Patients who cannot take different sittings and want results in one single sitting
  • Individuals who are comfortable with stitches and a long recovery period.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

The follicular unit extraction method involves making a punch incision around the fertile zone of the scalp to extract follicular units that benefit an individual with no linear scar. These follicular units are then grafted by making tiny holes in the affected area of the scalp. The graft is covered with a bandage to cover the scalp. The follicular unit extraction method is session-based, where a surgeon transplants more than hundreds of hair during the first session. An average of three to four sessions is required to get the desired result. The follicular unit extraction method of hair transplantation is effective in treating smaller areas of baldness with faster recovery time. Besides this, the method of FUE is also less invasive, which results in no scarring and hence, helps an individual who wishes to keep the short hairstyle.

Ideal candidates for the follicular unit extraction method are:
  • Individuals who have small bald areas
  • Women with small areas of baldness
  • Sportsmen and people with an active lifestyle

The FUT and FUE methods of hair transplant treatment are effective and safe and are recommended by a medical expert after examining the hair loss condition and desired result. Both the hair transplantation method is carried out after numbing the area with anesthetic injections. Certain precautions are to be followed by individuals who undergo hair transplant surgery.
