Hair transplantation is a careful techique that is used to treat varying levels of androgenic alopecia in men and women.It is a medical procedure which balding areas are filled with hair.Unlike other organ transplant procedures, in this treatment, your own hair is transplanted and no external donor is needed.
It is normal to lose up to 100 hairs a day, however, losing more than that can spell trouble. It is then that you require medical intervention and get yourself diagnosed.You can visit a general doctor for the preliminary diagnosis. If required you may be referred to a dermatologist, an endocrinologist or a trichologist.

Who can undergo hair transplantation?

In our day, more than 50% of men over 50 years old face the male pattern baldness issue. Thus, hair transplantation is the most frequent cosmetic surgery for men. Hair loss is not a condition specific to men. Many women also experience hair loss or thinning problems.

Why is there hair loss?

It’s important to know the reasons why hair thins out to help prevent it from happening prematurely. While ageing naturally causes hair to thin, other lifestyle factors can also influence the thickness of your locks. Smoking is one such example that can put you at higher risk of becoming bald. Due to their toxins, cigarettes can hinder the blood flow to your follicles, causing thinning. Likewise, as your strands are made up of protein fibres, not enough protein in your diet can also have a significant impact on your hair. Other factors that can contribute to hair thinning include stress, some medications and medical conditions.

How is the hair transplantation done?

Hair transplantation involves removing small pieces of hair and follicles from the “donor area” (usually hair on the back and sides of the head) and relocating them to the bald or thinning area. This involves two distinct processes: donor harvesting and the preparation of recipient sites. 
Hair transplantation is done between 4 to 8 hours relying upon the degree of the transplantation. The methodology is normally done under local anaesthetic and does not cause excessively inconvenience.Majority of time, immediately after the hair transplant the hairs fall out of the grafts, and do not regrow for 1-3 months. The donor sites gradually heal to leave slight scarring but this is concealed by “lifetime” hair growing around the site. Patients need to be aware that hair transplantation does not produce an instantaneous head of hair, but the results are seen over time.

What is FUE Hair Transplantation?

Follic Unit Extraction is a modern hair transplantation technique. Hair follicles to be transferred in FUE hair transplant (follicular unit) are extracted under growing with help of micro motor from the nape of the neck, where permanent hairs are intensive. It is not sutured and suture mark does not occur. The donor area for hair is mostly the nape of the neck but rarely other areas such as chest hair are used. Donor area heals completely within ten days. Small holes are opened on the hair transplantation area with special needles and follicles, allocated to units’ hairs are placed in these holes. Hair transplantation angle is parallel to the angle of the original hair. Follicular unit use gives a natural look to the patient. The transplanted hair is lost in two-three weeks and they grow again in two to three months as a permanent. The emergence of the full results takes a period of 8-12 months.

What is FUT Hair Transplantation?

The FUT process involves removing a small strip of tissue from the back of the head, from which the donor hair follicles will be extracted. The hair follicles are harvested from the strip by a skilled clinical team before being individually transplanted to the recipient areas. In most cases, and especially cases of advanced hair loss, FUT is the preferred method because it allows the physician to fully utilize the scalp area to deliver results consistent with patient expectations. FUT typically allows for the greatest number of grafts to be transplanted in a single session.

What are the advantages of FUE hair transplantation?

On the donor area, scar as a straight line does not happen after hair transplantation, recovery time is short in the donor area. Chance of worse scar formation called as hypertrophic scar is less.It doesn’t make any constraint of movement after hair transplantation and is more comfortable. In the event that scalp is highly extended, it is a decent option. There are not any scar growing risks even if donor area is expanded. Hair follicles except for head (from the shoulder and chest area) may also be received. Especially when he needs a limited number of hairs is preferred.
