What is Hair Transplant Surgery?

Hair transplant surgery is a treatment performed to treat hair loss. A hair transplant is a technique in which a plastic or dermatological surgeon transplants hair to a bald region of the head. Usually, the surgeon transfers hair from the top or front of the head to the side or rear of the head. Those with genetic or persistent baldness are advised to undergo a hair transplant treatment. A genetic abnormality that runs in the family is the primary factor in hereditary baldness, which is typically incurable. Those who have hair loss due to an accident, scar, or burn are also advised to opt for it. A hair transplant is generally advised to restore hair in the areas where it has ceased growing in such persons.

One of two techniques for the hair transplant treatment will be recommended by your doctor:

There are two ways in which Hair Transplantation can be done – strip harvesting and follicular unit extraction. It is recommended mostly by all surgeons because it is quick, and recovery can be done within two weeks.

Strip harvesting – In strip harvesting, strips of skin with good hair growth are taken and planted in areas with thin or no hair. This process helps attain a natural appearance at every stage of the process.

Follicular unit extraction – In follicular unit extraction, the hair is removed in small groups or one by one and transplanted to the bald area. As compared to strip harvesting, FUE is manual and more time-consuming and would take multiple surgeries for the process to be successful. It is useful when less hair is to be transplanted.

No, a hair transplant procedure is not painful because of local anaesthetic and post-operative pain relievers. Just like any other kind of surgery, hair transplant surgery also poses some risks such as infection or bleeding. It may also be possible that the new hair may end up looking unnatural or there is also the chance of scarring. When new hair starts to grow, some people might have inflammation or folliculitis, an infection of the hair follicles. All these issues can be relieved with the help of antibiotics. You can also consult your doctor if you have any doubts regarding the whole procedure.

You should generally refrain from swimming or physical activity for two to four weeks following hair implant, or until your doctor allows you. For the scabs to heal and naturally fall off, as well as for the donor scalp regions and hair transplants to fully recover, healing time is necessary.
Just like natural hair, transplant hair sheds between two to four weeks after the transplant surgery. After that, the roots start to grow hair naturally and it continue to occur well into the future .
Little, tattooed dots are used during the non-surgical process known as scalp micropigmentation, or SMP, to give the illusion of fuller hair. While micropigmentation doesn’t replace hair, the dots it produces on the scalp might hide bald areas and provide the impression of fuller hair.
When healthy hair follicles are placed into bald or thinning regions, hair implants often last a lifetime. The patient’s hair type, lifestyle, age, and degree of hair loss are a few examples of variables that may have an impact on how long a hair surgery lasts.
