What is Hair Transplant

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' to a bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding, (like the back of the head) are transplanted to the bald scalp. Hair transplantation can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.

Since hair naturally grows in groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, current techniques harvest and transplant hair "follicular units" in their natural groupings. Thus modern hair transplantation can achieve a natural appearance by mimicking original hair orientation. This hair transplant procedure is called follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Donor hair can be harvested in two different ways: strip harvesting, and follicular unit extraction (FUE).

Method of Hair Transplant in Lucknow

The most popular hair transplant methods are: Follicular Unit Hair Transplants (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Both methods involve follicular transplant, meaning follicles are extracted from donor area and transplanted in the recipient area; but the way follicles are extracted and transplanted is different in each case. Hair follicles are taken from patients themselves, mostly from the backside of the scalp.

In FUE, individual follicles are extracted from the donor area and transplanted to the recipient area one by one; whereas in FUT, also known as strip method, a strip of hair follicles is taken out from the donor area and transplanted on the area with baldness. Strip method is regarded as the golden standard in hair transplant because it has higher success rate; however, this procedure results in a linear scar on the donor area.

FUT method is simple and cost effective because it involves less number of incisions on the scalp. A single strip may be used to implant a large number of grafts, up to 5000 or more. This method is better for treating extensive baldness covering large areas on the scalp. Compared to FUE, FUT involves less blood loss and pain. The procedure can be completed much quicker than FUE. Also, in FUE the chances of hair follicles getting damaged are also less because donor area suffers from less shock from the surgical procedures. Another advantage of FUE method is that donor area need not be shaved, so there will be no disfigurement of the existing hair as the donor area will be easily covered by existing hair surrounding it.

Either procedure (strip harvesting or follicular unit grafting) is carried out under local anesthetic, and for male pattern baldness, an average of 2500 hair follicles are re-established in the recipient area per session. Depending on which procedure you opt for, the healing time varies between 1-2 weeks.

What Is The Ideal Age For Hair Transplant?

Technically a person can undergo a hair transplant at any age, but there are some precautions that must be considered for very young people looking to restore their hairline. Since it is very difficult to assess the long-term stability of donor hair and the extent of future hair loss when patients are very young, it is best to wait to have a hair transplant until at least the age of 25.

Procedure of Hair Transplant in Lucknow

There are two main procedures for transplanting; grafts harvesting or graft transplanting. Whichever one, the procedure is done under local anesthesia tumescent technique.

For several days prior to surgery the patience refrains from using any medicines which might result in intra-operative bleeding and resultant poor "take" of the grafts. Alcohol and smoking can contribute to poor graft survival. Post operative antibiotics are commonly prescribed to prevent wound or graft infections.

It involves about seven to eight hours. At the end a protective dressing is done which is removed after two days.

The recovery time is immediate and the pain negligible. It is pertinent to note that hair transplant operations are performed on an out patience basis

During the first six weeks, shafts of virtually all of the transplanted hairs will fall out leaving their bulbs behind. After two to three months new hair will begin to grow from the moved follicles. The patient's hair will grow normally, and continue to thicken through the next six to nine months.

The patience is advised to wash his head after six days and is also advised to wear a soft cap to avoid direct exposure to sunlight till the hair growth starts.
