Hair Transplant

Hair Transplant

Hair transplant is a surgical procedure where surgeon transfers hair follicles from one part of head to another, mainly, where hair are thinning or receding.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF HAIR TRANSPLANT

  • F.U.T : A strip of scalp skin is removed & sutured to close the wound.
  • F.U.E : World over F.U.E is preferred.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF HAIR TRANSPLANT

Receiving a hair transplant helps in boosting confidence and self-awareness. A person undergoes hair transplant when they start experiencing thinning of hair, hair lost because of burn or scalp injury or male pattern baldness in men.

WHAT IS PROCEDURE FOR HAIR TRANSPLANT?

To start with the procedure of hair transplant, the first thing the surgeon does is cleaning the scalp thoroughly. Then numbing the area of the head with local anaesthesia. There are two techniques that your surgeon might use:

FOLLICULAR UNIT TRANSPLANT

  • The steps in this include:
  • The surgeon cut a strip of scalp skin using a scalpel from the back of the head. Incision here is several inches long.
  • After that, the stitches are closed.
  • The surgeon separates the removed portion of the scalp into small sections and then implant the follicles using a sharp surgical knife and magnifying lens. This gives a natural looking hair growth.

FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION

This is the most common and popular hair transplant technique. The steps include:

  • Using hundreds to thousand punches , hair follicles are taken out directly from the back of the head.
  • After that, tiny holes are being made in the area of the scalp for which hair transplant is being done. The hair are gently placed in these holes.
  • During one session of treatment, the surgeon transplants 2,000 to 5,000 of hair grafts.
  • For the next few days, the scalp is covered with gauze or bandages.

This transplant session takes four or more hours depending on the area of transplant. Few cases need another session of hair transplant to achieve further dense hair. The new session is undertaken only after previous transplant is fully healed.

RECOVERING FROM HAIR TRANSPLANT

After the hair transplant surgery, the scalp may be sore or numb for some time. Your doctor may recommend you with pain medications, antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medicines to reduce infection and swelling. It’s normal and common for transplanted hair to fall out after procedure making a way for new hairs. Also, it takes around 8 to 12 months after surgery for hairs to be fully grown.
