“Why transplanted hairs are for life?”
Hair transplant surgery is a revolutionary
minimally invasive procedure, which can answer all your woes of thinning and
receding hair. One often gets a realistic natural look, but there is always one
question: ‘will my hair transplant be
the permanent answer?’
happens in hair transplant technique?
The hair follicles are extracted using two
methods – FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit
Transplantation).The FUE procedure restores hair by transplanting hair
follicles from donor area (area mostly at the back of the head) to the bald
area (recipient area).This method doesn’t involve any cuts or stiches and is a day care
surgery. It is one of the most successful techniques being practiced. Your own
hair follicles are being used as a graft.The hair grafts are inserted into the
scalp at a precise angle and density to ensure they
resemble a natural and realistic hair pattern.
Now, is the result permanent?
Yes. It’s the most natural permanent solution of all the treatments available.
Why is it long lasting?
depends on the amount of donor hair follicles present, the health of the scalp
and the follow up period. This is nothing artificial. More the donor follicles present, better is
the coverage. The roots of the hair at the donor site are not affected by
hormonal influences and the same roots are placed at the deficient site.Thus
the transplanted hair grows naturally. Well motivated patients with good
overall health get ideal results. It takes about 4-8 months for the hair to
completely grow.The newly transplanted hair continues to grow just as in the
donor area, and this growth will be permanent.
may experience minor hair loss after a few weeks of the transplant, which can
be expected but it grows back in 3-6 months, looking robust and healthy.
What can I do to make
the treatment effective?
of hair transplant surgery depends on the post – surgery care which the patient
takes, than the technique itself. Strict adherence to the instructions given by
the surgeon, maintaining scalp hygiene along with the regular usage of the
accessory medications given for hair growth is guaranteed to give the best
result you are hoping for.
