Learning about the method of a hair transplant?
It is a surgical process that usually involves the removal of hair follicles
from numerous sites of the body like face or legs and implanting them on the
hairless portion, usually the head. This latest technique is permanent and the
expert picks up follicular clusters of hair. It is called Follicular Hair
Transplantation (FUT) that can be done in two ways,
– Strip harvesting
– Follicular unit extraction (FUE)
Strip harvesting strips the skin with ample growth of good hair and is planted on the scare, balding areas, in the follicular unit and extracting the hair clusters along with their roots and is manually removed and implanted at the hairless site.
Many surgeons adopt the method of strip harvesting and usually leaves a slim scar at the site of the donor and ensure recovery within two weeks.
Follicular Unit Extraction
Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE is done in a setting of singular or several aspects. It is considered as a manual and time taking process, ensures a natural result and usually leaves no marks behind. It is not a cost-effective process and is also time-consuming both for the expert doctor and the patient. However, with the use of robotics and technology, it has reduced the due time in this process and has simplified the process immensely.
How to prepare for the hair transplant
It is a very particular procedure and should be done with utmost care:
1) In the first step of the hair transplant procedure, the hair follicles from the back portion of the head are removed and then relocated to the much present balding areas.
2) Before the initiation of the surgery, the hair of the targeted area of the donor is trimmed.
3) Once the hair of the area is trimmed, local anaesthesia is given by a specialist for the commencement of the procedure.
4) The tissue of the donor that contains the bald-resistant hair follicles is then removed surgically and the area of the donor is then sutured.
5) The sutures of the donor area are then hidden from the patient’s hair is combed over them, repeatedly. These sutures are then removed in almost ten days after the hair transplant surgery.
6) Microscopes are used by the surgical technicians to observe the tissue of the donor in dissecting and preparing follicular unit hair grafts.
7) When the local anaesthesia is given to the patient, the balding area is prepared for the surgical process. No trimming/removal of hair is required at the top of the recipient’s area.
8) Follicular Unit Grafts are placed in the small incisions that are made in a pattern of the irregularity of the recipient area.
9) The smallest one or two grafts are placed in front of the hairline and three and four are placed behind.
10) After the hair transplant surgery, small incisions with short hair is visible on the operated area of the patient.
11) The incision marks then heal naturally and the redness of the recipient area then vanishes itself within a week.
The transplanted hair looks and feels like a natural hair and usually sheds between two to four weeks of transplant. The roots then start sprouting naturally and continue to do so for a lifetime. Use of local anaesthesia makes the procedure painless and the patient can go home the same day. Hair transplant is different from the non-surgical hair restoration in which the pre-chosen base is then fixed on the scalp with the same dexterity.
