Hair Transplant is a medical strategy that involves moving of individual hair follicles from a aspect of one’s whole body known as the ‘donor site’ to a hairless or baldness aspect of one’s whole body called as ‘recipient site’. This is a non-invasive process, in which hair graft that are genetically resistant to baldness are transplanted to the hairless scalp. With this strategy, eye lashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, crotch hair can be restored and accidental marks can be filled and medical marks like facelift, or of previous thinning hair transplants can also be corrected.
As organic growth of hair occurs in a group of 1-4 hairs, thus the today’s technology can harvest and implant them in their organic grouping form of 1-4 hair follicular units. And this helps in mimicking a organic appearance of hair. Thus this process is known as FOLLICULAR UNIT TRANSPLANTATION (FUT)
Methods of donor hair harvesting
1. Strip Harvesting
2. Follicular unit extraction or FUE harvesting.
3. Remove Harvesting
In this strategy, local sedation is given in head cells and then a strip of it is eliminated which is then cut into small items of grafts cells. The injure is sutured together, which results in a straight line scratch in the contributor place. The grafts are replanted into small receiver sites made in the loss place of sufferers head. This strategy includes a 2 week restoration period of individual and even needs elimination of stitching from a health care professional.
Transplant operations are performed on an outpatient basis, with mild sedation (optional) and injected local anaesthesia, which typically last about six hours.
For the ease of understanding this intricate process we can divide the entire process of Hair Transplant in two sessions that are usually completed within the same day;
Session – I:
The scalp is shampooed and then treated with an antibacterial agent prior to the donor scalp being harvested. The team uses follicular unit procedure to harvests the grafts from the areas of good hair growth called the “Donor Area”. The team then making use of binocular Stereo-microscopes, carefully remove excess fibrous and fatty tissue so that follicular cells are ready to be used for grafting.
Session – II:
The surgeon then uses very small micro blades or fine needles to puncture the sites for receiving the grafts, placing them in a predetermined density and pattern, and angling the wounds in a consistent fashion to promote a realistic hair pattern of the “Recipient Area”, and the final part of the procedure is completed by inserting the individual grafts in place.
Treatment For Hair Loss
Excessive locks reduction from the head. The medical term is hair reduction. The disorder can have many causes including stress from surgery or illness, hormonal changes (thyroid hormone, estrogen, androgen), medication adverse reactions, fungal infections, and illnesses such as auto-immune illnesses or diabetes. Trauma to the locks roots (traction alopecia) from certain hairstyles can cause nearby locks reduction as can chemicals applied to the head from locks treatments and colours. Thinning locks can be a component of aging and is called common hair loss (androgenic alopecia). This type of locks reduction is hereditary and the earlier it begins the worse the hair loss becomes with time.
