What is a hair replacement/transplant?
A hair replacement is a surgical procedure in which a dermatologist surgeon or a plastic surgery doctor transplants hair on the bald part of the Scalp.
Generally, surgeons take hair from the back of your head (donor area) and transplant it to the bald part of the front or middle of the Scalp. Surgeons usually perform hair transplants in their clinic under local anesthesia.
According to experts, the cause of overdose baldness is genetic. However, the remaining cases may have different reasons, such as your lack of vitamins, stress, illness, or the medications you take.
Types of hair transplantation surgery
There are two types of transplant processes -.
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation):
This technique is a traditional technique of hair restoration. Unfortunately, it is an old type that lost its validity in the last few years.
In this procedure, the surgeon doesn’t need to shave the entire Scalp, only the donor area. Then they remove a 6- to 10-inch piece of the scalp skin from the back of your head and close the area with stitches.
Next, the surgeon’s crew separates the strip of removed Scalp into 500 to 2,000 little grafts. These grafts may contain only one hair or a few.
The surgeon makes tiny holes in your Scalp, inserts hair grafts into these holes, and then covers the surgical area with bandages.
FUT leaves linear scars, which will fade over time but will not disappear completely.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction):
Many types of FUE techniques are developed over time, including:
- Classic FUE:
- Sapphire FUE:
- Robotic FUE:
- DHI (Direct Hair Implantation):
A hair replacement may improve your confidence and look. Getting a hair transplant can be a good option for the following people:
- Men who have baldness patterns on their Scalps.
- Women who have hair loss issues
- If there is no hair due to burns or injury to the Scalp.
- A hair transplant is not a good option for inferior people.
- People who have hair loss due to treatment like chemotherapy
