How Does Hair Transplantation Work and Who Should
Undergo this Treatment?
(No Transcript)
  • Baldness is something we dread especially when we
    are still in our 20s and 30s. Lifestyle and
    genetic factors may lead to early hair loss.
    Although medicines and supplements help to
    control or delay the process they too will fail
    after a certain point of time especially for
    those who started to care about it too late.
    Medical science doesnt let you give up and comes
    to your rescue here too hair transplant.
  • To understand how hair transplant works we have
    to understand why hair loss happens
  • Hair growth is caused by follicles which are
    located beneath our skin. The size of our hair
    grows as cells are added to the base of these
    follicles. Hair fall is a part of the natural
    process and they fall off from their follicles.
    However, a new hair replaces the old fallen hair
    which continues to grow again. Take an example,
    women pluck their eyebrows but they grow back
    after a certain time. It is because the follicles
    are present within and a new hair will come up in
    place of the removed hair.
  • Permanent hair loss can be caused by different
    reasons such as a major trauma of the skin which
    leaves a scar tissue without any follicles. When
    there are no follicles there will be no hair
    growth. Another reason which happens to be the
    most common one is that the follicles stop
    growing hair. They are present under your skin
    but they wont grow hair. This is because a
    hormone known as Dihydrotestosterone blocks the
    work of the follicles. This condition is known as
    alopecia. Both men and women can suffer from this
    condition but it is more common in men and
    medical science offers hair transplant for both.

  • How Does Hair Transplant Work?
  • When we speak about hair transplant it is not
    just the hair that is taken from the donor area
    but it is the healthy follicles that are placed
    on top of the bald spot. Male patients tend to
    have a safe zone on their heads which is the
    sides and the back from where the follicles can
    be taken, this area is known as the donor zone.
    Hair transplant is generally of two types FUE and
    FUT. Both have their own advantages and
    processes. An experienced dermatologist is the
    best person to decide which type or hair
    transplantation treatment would best suit you.
    Here is how the mentioned type of hair
    transplantations work
  • FUT or Follicular Unit Transplantation is also
    referred to as the strip procedure. In this case
    strips of tissue are removed from the donor area
    which is further cut into single follicular
    units. The surgeon places these individual grafts
    in the tiny holes made on the scalp. The strip
    removed from the donor area is stitched and
    leaves a scar which takes some time to heal.
  • FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is more
    advanced than the FUE method. Here the surgeon
    extracts just one follicular unit and places on
    the bald spot. Since there are no strips
    extracted there are no scars left. In the FUE
    method, the healing time is very less.

  • Although FUE is more advanced FUT is also advised
    by many surgeons. This is because more hair can
    be harvested in this process which can help in
    covering a larger area of the bald spot.
  • In both the cases, the surgeons follow a certain
    pattern while placing the hair so when the hair
    grows it blends with the remaining hair on the
    scalp naturally.
  • After a few weeks of the surgery, the
    transplanted hair will shed and fall. It takes
    usually between 3-4 months to see hair re-growth
    in the transplanted areas. You can have full hair
    anywhere between 9-12 months. Women may have to
    wait longer to see complete results.
