Title: Hair Transplant Before And After

(No Transcript)
  • Hair transplants are medical surgeries that
    include the transfer of hair follicles from one
    region of the body, known as the donor site, to
    the other, referred to as the receiver site.
  • Male pattern baldness is the most common
    indication of this therapy.
  • While no operation is painless and some temporary
    discomfort is to be expected, hair
    transplantation is often a pleasurable and
    uncomplicated process for most patients suffering
    hair loss.
  • The hair transplantation results are often
    noticeable after six months and will continue to
    improve after one year.

If your transplant is successful, you will
experience the procedures benefits in the summer
or autumn. This is when you want to look your
best for a wedding season, holiday, or any other
occasion. If you are reading through this
article, you think of having a hair transplant.
Lets not discuss everything here in the
introductory part! We have arranged a more
detailed review of hair transplants and their
surprising effect comparing post and pre-haired
transplants. Without any further ado, lets get
Types of Hair Transplants
  • There are three types of hair transplant methods.
    The best option for you will depend on your
    individual needs and your physicians
    recommendations. Learn about the benefits of a
    hair transplant before and after. Lets get to
    know them

Follicular unit extraction (FUE hair transplant)
  • The doctor will use a small punching instrument
    to extract follicles from the donor area.
  • While this still results in a scar, it will be
    less apparent, and the person will often not need
    sutures. FUE includes extracting the hair
    follicles from a donors site and transferring
    them to form a more extensive, natural hairline.
  • This approach removes longitudinal scars and
    specialized treatment of the wound while the
    detailed FUE procedures take time in surgery. FUE
    hair transplantation also tends to minimize
    downtimes and pain after the treatment.

Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) Method
  • The FUT hair transplantation procedure involves
    removing a strip of skin from the donors hair
    follicles site, usually the back of your head.
    This skin is removed and primed for
    transplantation in small tissue groups containing
    hair follicles.
  • The easiest way to cover a hairline affected by
    masculine style shallowness is to undergo
    surgery. During FUT surgery, a surgeon cuts a
    skin layer out from the back portion of his head
    and harvests individual hair glands. The
    follicles are then incorporated into your scalps
    balding areas.
  • Usually, FUT is less costly than the FUE phase,
    which is similar.

Follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) Method
  • The surgeon takes a skin strip from the donor
    region and stitches the incision in this method.
    A microscope can split the donor skin into
    smaller follicular units containing one or more
    hair follicles and put them on the target
  • It entails collecting and transferring a thin
    strip of healthy hair-bearing skin from a
    permanent region of the scalp to an area of
    hair loss (non-permanent).
  • FUSS needs medium ability, which takes less than
    FUSS but notes that if the surgeon has the
    advanced professional expertise, FUSS will yield
    excellent outcomes.

To Dos For Pre-Surgical Hair Transplant
  • You have to go through some essential procedures
    before having a hair transplant surgery. Below we
    have elaborately described the procedures.
  • Take a shower and wash your hair with shampoo.
    Instead of eating hard food, eat oats with bread
    and butter or orange juice. Bring in your meal if
    you have unique nutritional requirements. Do not
    drink caffeine or soda before your visit.
  • Dont consume ALCOHOL 14 days before the
    operation. No deviations or cancellations can be
    expected from your surgery. Dont forget to wear
    a baseball cap or an elastic open back after the
    operation. Also, wear an old T-shirt during the
    process, which you can throw away if it gets
  • Keep taking any medicines prescribed by your
    physician. Ensure you have a copy of it before
    your day of operation to get medical approval
    from your doctor. If this is not accomplished,
    the treatment will be discontinued, and the first
    payout may be lost.

To Dos For Post-Surgical Hair Transplant
  • You have to abide by some post-surgical hair
    transplant rules like the pre-operation methods.
    Lets have a look at them
  • Hair transplantation does not usually involve
    heavy sedation, but its safer not to operate
    under its influence if you have taken a sedative.
    Consider sleeping with your head lifted for the
    first seven days, as swelling may occur. After
    your surgery, let someone drive you home.
  • It will last just a few days for most patients
    and never have any negative experience. To avoid
    swelling, use ice above the eyebrows on the 3rd
    or 4th day of the postoperative procedure. Be
    very careful for the first five days when washing
    your hair.
  • Apply your hair dye immediately before your
    operation. Do not massage too hard and blast the
    water stream on your scalp directly. Because for
    four additional weeks, you may not have the
    permission to do it.

Hair transplant side effects
  • Of course, you will have surgery, and you will
    have to face some side effects. Here are some
    side effects that may occur after having a hair
    transplant surgery
  • Pain and swelling
  • After the operation, some people will have
    discomfort as their skin heals. Your doctor may
    prescribe pain medication to assist you. As your
    skin heals, you may experience swelling in your
    head and face. In certain situations, the edema
    is so severe that the patient cannot open his
    eyes. Ecchymosis of the eyes is an uncommon
    complication (black eyes).

  • Bleeding
  • Hair transplantation requires slicing or cutting
    the skin. A surgeon removes the donors follicles
    and makes tiny incisions on the scalp to position
    the strands in the scalp.
  • There is a chance of infection or too much
    bleeding for any incision. The night after an
    operation or a few days after it, bleeding will
    occur. This nearly always stops when you exert a
    steady 15-minute pressure on the field. Push
    firmly yet softly to prevent the intervening
    greys from dislodging.

  • Scars
  • The donor area and the transplant area are both
    at risk of scarring. Anyone who wishes to have
    the operation should talk to his surgeon about
    these dangers.
  • The FUSS method typically leaves a long,
    longitudinal scar, through which a scalp strip is
    removed. The new hair grows over this scar, so it
    may become camouflaged. However, it can be seen
    if it gets wider during recovery if the hair
    around it is thin or if the person has a short

With FUE hair transplantation, no strip is
removed, and each follicle is removed with a
small, round operating punch. This means that no
linear scar occurs. Patients are typically free
to shorten their hair as long as the total
follicular units are reduced, without significant
cosmetically impacts on their donor region.
  • Losing sensation
  • It is important to remember that some numbness is
    normal and not cause for concern after hair
    transplantation. However, long-term complications
    like persistent numbness at the incision sites.
  • In some instances, the sensation to return to the
    skin can take six months. It takes time to get
    back and feel so relaxed.

Final Words
  • Hair Transplantation has become one of the
    essential procedures for many people. Losing hair
    reduces your confidence, and you have all the
    right to get it back.
  • In this article, we have tried to provide you
    with the necessary information you may need to
    prepare yourself for a hair transplant. We hope
    you have enjoyed the procedures that have been
    given. Please let us know your thoughts in the
