What is hair transplantation and who can undergo it?

Hair transplantation is one of the most effective techniques to get back the lost hairs wherein hairs follicles from the specific parts of the scalp are extracted and grafted on the bald areas. Dr. Y V Rao Clinic utilizes advanced techniques to get the best outcome.

Since hair loss is common in both men and women, hair transplantation can be done to combat the hair loss issues. There could be many reasons for hair loss like pollution, stress, use of poor quality of hair products, hormonal imbalance, and pregnancy or even genetic. Other than these, people who lost hairs due to trauma or injury can also undergo hair transplantation. It is effective to treat the bald scalp as well as to get back hair on other parts of the body like beard, mustache, and eyebrows.

What are the different methods of hair transplantation?

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) are the two most effective methods of hair transplantation.

In FUE, individual hair follicles from the back and side of the scalp are extracted. They are then transplanted into the bald areas to restore the hairs. Hair follicles through FUE are also used to increase hair density. There is no or minimal scarring in FUE.

In FUT, a band of skin is removed from the nuchal area of the scalp and transplanted on the targeted areas. FUT usually gives scars due to which patients generally prefer FUE over it. However, in some instances, FUT is more effective and useful rather FUE.

How long is the hair transplant procedure?

Hair transplantation is a simple procedure which takes around 2 to 3 hours for completion. The duration of the transplantation depends upon the number of hair follicles to be transplanted and the targeted areas. There could be multiple sessions of transplantation if the bald area is too large. The entire procedure is done under the influence of local anesthesia to minimize the pain or discomfort.

What is the recovery time of hair transplantation treatment?

The patient is discharged from the hospital after a few hours of surgery. The doctor provides some important instructions to follow after the treatment. It helps in shortening the recovery period and combats the pain or discomfort if any. The patient can resume working after 3 days of surgery. The first medical wound dressing is done on the 5th day after which the patient can carry on the routine works.

Which area of the scalp is used for extracting the hair follicles?

The hair follicles are extracted from the nuchal area of the scalp. Therefore, it is essential that this area comprises a good amount of hair when you are going for hair transplantation. The extracted hair follicles are called grafts. If in case, the nuchal area doesn’t consist of enough hair, hair follicles from some other body parts of the body like arms or chest are extracted to accomplish hair transplantation.

What are the chances of transplanted hair to fall out?

Falling out of some of the transplanted hair is a normal process that takes place after a few weeks of treatment. You don’t need to panic as it is a temporary shedding. The new hairs grow in the same place again within 3 to 4 months. The transplanted hair follicles preserve their characteristics and retain in the scalp forever. In general, the falling of transplanted hair stops after some time. However, if the shedding continues, additional surgical intervention may be needed.

What is the success rate of hair transplantation?

The success rate of hair transplantation is high when it is performed under the supervision of competent, well-skilled and experienced dermatologists and plastic surgeons. The chances of scarring and discomfort decrease when hair transplantation is done under a well-established and reputed clinic. However, if the treatment is done under unsuitable conditions and by an inexperienced surgeon, failure in getting the best result increases.

What are the factors to consider for successful hair transplantation?

To get the best result, it is essential that you take the treatment from an experienced surgeon. The patient should follow all the aftercare instructions given by the doctor. The skilled surgeons vascularize the hair follicles for their proper adhering on the scalp. Moreover, they ensure placing the follicles with the right angle, right distance, and perfect density to give a natural look.

Are there any risks involved in hair transplantation?

Generally, there are little risks involved in hair transplantation which subsides after some time. If you take the treatment from an experienced surgeon, the chances of risks decrease significantly. Some of the major complications that may arise are pain, discomfort, swelling, bruising, infection, and numbness. Local anesthesia is given on the scalp to reduce pain during surgery. To combat infections, antibiotic lotions may be provided by the doctor. Numbness on the transplanted areas may subside within 2 to 3 months.
