Hair transplants have provided a successful treatment for hair loss, which may be caused by many factors such as illness or genetic set up. Hair transplant involves the extraction of hair from an area that has good hair growth and to plant these hairs on to the bald patch that has little or no hair growth. The newly planted hair gains nutrition from the scalp and starts to grow normally on the part that previously had no hair growth. Hair transplant is a delicate procedure and should be done by a surgeon who is skilled and has the precision required for this kind of a surgery.
Hair transplant is done in two main ways; Strip harvest and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). The former procedure requires removal of hair in the form of a strip from a patch that has good hair growth. This strip is then dissected into smaller hair units and is planted onto the scalp where there is no growth or the existing growth is scanty. The procedure is short and is done by using local anesthesia on the patient. It ensures relief from a bald look that has caused many people to feel under confident and shy. Strip harvest is not recommended for everyone, especially if the kind of hair implantation needed requires a higher number of grafts. Apart from this the chance of extracted hair on the strip to become lifeless and lose viability are greater than the chance of losing hair grafts during the FUE procedure. The strip of hair is removed using sharp cutters and then this wound is stitched back using surgical staples made of stainless steel.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a process which is more technical than strip harvesting that involves the hair follicles to be removed individually under local anesthesia; this kind of micro removal of hair follicles uses tiny punches. Each hair follicle is then individually reinserted into the scalp area that has no hair growth or very scanty hair growth. The incisions on the bald patch are made using a micro blade. Since individual hair follicles are removed, the punch scars that remain on the donor area are negligible and can be covered with hair length. Due to the same reason, the post-surgical pain is also minimized. As no stitches or staples are removed, the recovery time for FUE is much shorter than strip harvesting. The FUE hair transplant is fully recovered within 7 days. Hair transplant surgery is available with many clinics but one thing that a candidate must keep in mind is that they should do all kinds of research prior to the surgery. Once the surgeon is consulted, the candidate must be prepared for the procedure and must also know what to expect after surgery. Usually all the hair that is transplanted is shed off due to shock, however, within a period of three to six months, the hair growth becomes normal.
