Our hair is an integral part of our appearance. Therefore, losing one’s hair could be a discouraging situation. However, hair transplant has proven results to restore the look and confidence of many with its effective technology. Hair loss might have occurred for various reasons; however, a hair transplant can restore your previous appearance with long term results.
Hair transplant is a procedure to restore thinning hair and involves moving hair strands from the sides and back of the head to the area where there is a thinning hairline.
It is a surgical procedure and is performed by an experienced surgeon under local anesthesia.
The procedure is performed in two different methods, follicular unit strip surgery, where a patch of skin with hair strands is moved from the back and divided into individual hair grafts to be transplanted to the target site.
A newer technique is follicular unit extraction, in which individual hair follicles are moved to the target site.
The procedure has proven to show 70% hair growth in 6-9 months of duration.
For one week prior to the procedure:
- Relax instead of exerting yourself.
- Avoid smoking, alcohol, and excessive coffee/tea consumption.
- For three days before surgery, use an anti-dandruff shampoo.
How does it work
- Before treatment, the scalp is washed, and local anesthesia is given to numb the area of surgery.
- Then a follicular unit extraction procedure is performed to transplant hair follicles to the desired location.
- The procedure might take around 6-8 hours or more which is needed to transplant 3000 hair grafts in a single session. If the required graft is more than 3000 we plan a second session.
Frequently Asked Questions
There is little risk associated with the procedure as it is a surgical procedure; however, any side effects will subside within a few weeks. Infection, bleeding, swelling, crust formation at the surgical site, itching, folliculitis are a few risks post-treatment.
The transplanted area should be protected from the sun. After the dressing is done in the clinic along with de scabbing, which is done on day 7, shampooing should be done afterwards.
The relocated hairs may fall out eventually during the next few weeks, which is termed as “Shock Loss”, though the transplanted hair follicle would continue to grow new hair that would thicken over the next six to seven months.
No, apart from the needle’s prick to inject anesthesia, the entire procedure is not very painful. Our team takes care so that the patient has as much comfortable experience as possible.
It may be noted that the transplanted hair will fall out after a few weeks post hair transplantation due to “shock loss”. However, new hair growth will begin in 3-4 weeks. After that, a complete result can be expected in 8-9 months.
