What is Hair Transplantation?

Who Can Benefit From Hair Transplantation?
To understand who can benefit the best from a hair transplantation surgery, we must first understand what is causing hair loss in the first place. Patterned hair loss (androgenetic alopecia)can be due to genetic,nutritional,thyroid conditions. In cases where traditional hair growth treatment fails to give the desired results, hair transplantation surgery can be very effective.
Proper patient selection and counselling are important for a satisfied outcome.
Criteria for Hair Transplantation
- Preferred age 25 years or older
- Patients with moderate hair loss and good donor area density
- No contraindication for surgery like keloidal tendency
- Scalp injuries or burns
- Reconstruction of eyebrows and sideburns.
What Are The Types of Hair Transplantation?
Like any medical surgery, the procedure of hair transplantation has evolved. Among them, the two beneficial types of hair transplant surgery are FUE hair transplantation & FUT strip surgery. Although FUE is a newer technique, FUT also has its own set of benefits. Let’s see what these techniques entail.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): In FUE technique, each hair graft , containing 1-3 live hair follicles, is extracted using a punch machine. The extracted hair follicles, called grafts, are then planted in the donor area. Around 2000 to 2500 grafts are planted in one session.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT): FUT hair transplant surgery is more commonly known as strip surgery. This is because in this technique, a strip of hair, containing multiple hair follicles, are extracted at a time. Grafts are separated from this strip and they are planted in the recipient area.Donor strip is on an average 20-25cm in length and 1-1.3cm wide yielding 2000-2500 grafts. A donor area linear scar is common complication of strip dissection in FUT.
Both the surgeries are performed under the influence of some form of anaesthesia. So, pain is minimal. Depending on the number of grafts, the surgery takes a couple of hours. Generally, scarring is minimal as well; even if there is any residual scarring, it remains hidden under hair growth.
When Can You Expect Growth Of New Hair After Hair Transplantation Surgery?
While the initial redness and swelling will subside within a couple of days, you must keep taking the medicines for 7-10 days for proper healing of surgical wounds. You must also keep yourself clean and avoid sunlight and irritants.
From the very beginning, you will see a head full of hair. However, after 2-4 weeks of the surgery, the transplanted hair will start falling off. Many people worry about this hair loss and think that the surgery was a failure. But this is totally natural.
After the planted hairs fall off, new hair will start growing in its place. After 3 – 6 months of hair transplantation, you can see the growth of new hair. These hairs will grow naturally. Optimum results are appreciated by 9 months to a year after the surgery.
Where Can Hair Be Restored?
Earlier hair restoration was limited to scalp hair only. But today’s advance in medicine took hair transplantation to a new level. And hence, our surgeons also perform hair restoration procedures for other areas of the body. Beard hair transplantation, hair restoration for a dense mustache, sideburn hair transplantation ,eyebrow and eyelash hair restoration are the procedures for other areas of the body.
At Eternoderm Clinic, we understand that these advanced procedures require experienced surgeons who are not only skilled at the procedure but also have an artistic eye to set the hairline right so that your new hair looks undetectably natural.
