In the hands of the right surgeon, a hair transplant is highly likely to succeed and is a more reliable long-term solution than using refurbished products.
However, if you are considering Hair Transplantation it is necessary to consider the following;
- Hair loss is not a scalp problem; it is a hair follicle problem
- The transplant hair will be thin over time
- If you have idle hair follicles, transplantation may not have a great long-term effect
- Successful transplantation depends on the quality of your existing hair
- It may not be suitable for those with widespread thinning and baldness
How Hair Transplant Works
Hair transplant has been popular in recent years to replace the hair that is thinning or collecting. Primarily, this is used on the head but can also be applied to other parts of the body including eyebrows and beard.
The procedure involves taking hair from more thick areas in the scalp, or in the body, and gripping it to the thinning or balding part of the scalp. Recent surveys have shown that about two-thirds of males and about half of the female population suffer from some hair loss.
When was the First Hair Transplant Ever?
1939 was the first time a surgeon tried to do a hair transplant. It happened and involved moving individual scallop hairs. Over time, physicians began using the famous plug technique associated with transplanting large hair tufts. This technique was, although it was quick and affordable, tending to leave scars and as a result there was more popularity on minor grades to use.
Does Transplant Hair need anesthesia?
Firstly, the surgeon sterilizes the area in which the hair is to be taken and puts the skin on the numbs with anesthetics.
Patients can choose from one of two types of procedure, below is a brief explanation of both.
Why choose FUE?
Confidentiality: As FUE produces small round scars are seen to be low, making it perfect for people with short hair.
Comfort: The recovery of the FUE can be said to be more comfortable, the recovery is not so painful, I do not get removed or bites, which makes simple aftercare simple.
Option: FUE can be more selective in the selection of hairs used for transplantation, reducing discomfort and visibility of the transplant.
If you prefer to wear your hair, FUE is the most suitable.
Why choose FUT?
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), or strip removal, is another option. Progress is being made with FUT over older hair transplant procedures which have used larger graphs and often have unnatural appearance. FUT will recite the way the hair grows and will be able to understand as a hair transplant.
With FUT, a hair strip is removed from the back or side of the scalp. FUT allows the surgeon to safely transplant thousands of grafts in one session, which maximizes the cosmetic impact of the procedure. You are given a local anesthetic in the donor area of your scalp. A donor strip is then removed and the area closed with skin staples. Usually it leaves a scar that is easily hidden by your remaining hair. The follicular units are then divided into microscopic control in natural groupings of hair follicular units of one, two and three.
Why choose FUT
Convenience: FUT hair transplant can be completed in one day without any problem.
Cost: The money is often less because more grafts can be collected in less time, making it cheaper than some other hair transplant options.
FUT was the transplant method used for star hair transplantation of the Embarrassing. On both occasions about 3,000 hairs were transferred from the back and sides of the scalp to hair line to fill out. Read his story and what he had to say here.
Patients can use both forms, as techniques can be used to obtain a specific number and specific type of grafts for your transplant procedure.
