Hair transplantation: Hair Loss or Alopecia has always been a concern for men or women. Male pattern hair loss is usually due to the influence of levels of hormones. Women’s patterned hair loss may be caused by menopause as the female hormones decrease. The most important and common reason for getting hair transplant is that these persons want to feel confident and look younger again as they were prior to hair loss & to regain the self-confidence.Hair loss is extremely common nowadays and is emerging as an alarming issue in the society. The various causes for hair loss are heredity, altered and stressful lifestyle, hormonal imbalance, medications, chemotherapy / radiation treatment for cancer patients and prolonged uncontrolled illnesses like thyroid disease, severe infection, etc.Hair loss leads to dramatic change in personality with strong desire to seek treatment.
Now a day’s hair restorative procedures in the form of hair transplant are readily available, which not only helps in an ultimate transformation but also it is a great way to improve self-confidence. Over last few years, we have observed that hair transplant has become the most commonly performed procedure among male cosmetic procedures. Female hair transplant too is on the rise. The awareness about hair transplant, its safety and results have made it amongst highest performed cosmetic procedure. The most important factor is that it should be performed scientifically by qualified plastic surgeon. Hair Transplant procedure is the only scientific treatment which is absolutely safe, giving permanent and natural results. Hair transplant has become the choice of treatment for both early as well as advance stage of baldness.
Hair Transplantation is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this surgery grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding from the back or the sides of the scalp (donor site) are harvested & transplanted to the balding part of the head known as the recipient site. It is also used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, and beard hair, and to fill in scars caused by accidents and surgery such as face-lifts and cleft lip repairs. It is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia. This most innovative and effective method of Hair Transplantation is known as Microscopic Follicular Unit Hair Transplant. Nearly 90 to 95% of the follicles are capable of living and grow healthily after being transplanted if the procedure is done correctly.
Since hair naturally grows in follicles that contain groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, today’s most advanced techniques transplant this naturally occurring 1–4 hair “follicular units” in their natural groupings. Hence modern hair transplantation can achieve a natural appearance. This newer hair transplant procedure is called Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). Plastic surgeon can determine who is a good candidate for a Hair Transplant. It all depends on the extent of the hair loss and the amount of hair available in the donor area. Patients will recover within a day or two after the surgery. Mega session and gig session, transplanting highest number of grafts is now routinely done giving dramatic change of self-image & confident look. Donor hair can be harvested in two very different ways;
1. Strip Harvesting (FUT –Follicular Unit Transplant) – In this more common method a strip of scalp from occipital area is removed under local anesthesia, the wound is then sutured back together and this piece of scalp tissue is then cut in to small pieces of tissue called follicular units or grafts. This method will leave only a linear scar in the donor area, which can be easily covered by patient’s hair. The recovery period is around 2 weeks.
2. FUE Harvesting – (Follicular Unit Extraction) : In this technique individual follicles of hair are removed under local anesthesia, this micro removal uses tiny punches. Each follicle is then reinserted back in to the scalp in the bald or thinned area using a needle or micro blade for making slits. If the patient is completely shaved the scars will look like miniature dots spread in the back of the head. Because this is single follicles and no large amount of tissue is removed there are no visible linear scars after surgery. Also there are no stitches to remove. Recovery from FUE is within 7 days. Hair growth will take between three to five months after the surgery. The hair will grow thin initially, then, it will continuously grow thicker and fuller. After a year the transplanted hair will continue to grow for a life time. Hair restoration of the scalp following burns present a unique problem but can be reconstructed.
