Hair Transplantation is a minimally invasive surgical procedure wherein the hair surgeon extracts the healthy hair follicles from the posterior part of the scalp and transfers them to the bald areas. It helps the patient to get back the lost hair. Hair transplant is an ideal solution for people suffering from hair thinning, hair loss, and partial to complete baldness.
What is the need for a hair transplant?
Hair loss, especially at a young age, could become a highly embarrassing condition for some people. It drastically lowers down the self-confidence of a person. At the same time, it negatively affects the professional as well as personal life.
Reasons for hair loss
Multiple reasons may cause hair loss like-
• Certain medical conditions
• Hormonal changes
• Poor nutritional uptake
• Deprivation of protein in the diet
• Using low-grade hair products
Something that starts with receding hairline leads to complete baldness after a few years. Therefore, it is very important to consult the best hair transplant doctor. It will help to conceal the hair thinning or baldness and get back the lost confidence.
Out of so many solutions to cover up the baldness, hair transplantation is a permanent one. The two most effective procedures are Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
What is Follicular Unit Transplantation?
FUT, also called a strip procedure, is an effective hair restoration technique in which a strip is removed from the scalp's posterior part. It is then dissected into individual follicular units or grafts that are transplanted in the bald areas one by one.
The hair surgeon uses special medical equipment for the removal and insertion of the hair follicles. Tiny holes are made with the help of fine needles in the bald areas for inserting the extracted hair follicles. Local anesthesia is given prior to reducing the level of discomfort or pain during the surgery.
What is Follicular Unit Extraction?
FUE is similar to FUT with the only difference that in FUE, individual follicles are extracted instead of the entire strip. Herein, the scalp is made numb with the help of local anesthesia. Later with the help of special instruments, hair follicles are extracted one by one and transplanted in the bald areas.
