With new advances in medical technology restoring a natural hair cover is one such achievement of medical science.

Like good health and youth, most of us take our hair for granted. But once they are lost many of us wish them to be back. For many people their hair is not so important so they don’t mind thinning of hair or even advanced baldness, for many others it bothers them and sometimes affects their self confidence.

A hair transplant can help bring back the normal look of hair. It is many times helpful in restoring confidence and way you feel about your appearance.

For those who are uncomfortable with the balding head, a Hair Transplant procedure can be a great help to feel more confident about their looks and restore youthful appearance. Although it only concerns cosmetic appearance but restoring hair cover makes a change in outlook for better

It is advisable to talk in details about expectations from the procedure probable results and also about other options for hair restoration available apart from hair transplant. Making an informed decision after discussion is better than going for procedure with unrealistic expectations.

Hair transplantation is safe and relatively painless procedure that restores and grows hairs naturally. It is an effective treatment for both men and women which gives an ultimate permanent remedy for baldness.

Hair transplantation is a procedure in which hair is removed from back of scalp i.e., the permanent hair-bearing region (the “donor” area) and transferred to bald or balding areas of the scalp (the “recipient” area). The transplanted hair has the same color and other characteristics as the hair in the donor area. There are two types of transplantation FUE( Follicular unit extraction) and FUT( Follicular unit transplantation by strip technique)

At Vivant Clinic the hair transplant is performed by the in house specialist, in a well equipped advanced Operation Theater. The surgery is a day care procedure without any complication, to give aesthetically elegant results.

FUE Technique

FUE is more popular in the modern era of transplantation. It is a day care, less invasive surgery that leaves behind no linear scar with minimal down time. The technique involves removal of each group of hair (Follicular units) with steel punches (0.7 – 0.9 mm size) and implanted on the bald scalp at a particular angle and density to have a natural look.

Main advantages of FUE technique

It is an advanced surgery with art and delicacy.
The donor site does not have any suture or linear scars
It is less painful and has minimal down time for the patient.
It requires a good competent team.

Steps:

The whole procedure is a day care surgery and the total stay in hospital would be for 8 to 10 hours.
Surgery is done under local anaesthesia. Patients may feel the initial injection prick of anaesthesia after which there won’t be any pain and the patient will be conscious through out the procedure.
Calculate the required number of grafts to be harvested, based on area of baldness and donor supply. If it is not sufficient we can take from body and beard region called as body hair transplantation
After anesthesia, safe area to be harvested is marked and grafts are harvested with suitable punch, more precisely.
The harvested grafts are implanted immediately in to bald area.

Advantages of FUE Hair Transplant – Why should I opt FUE

No linear scar, I can keep my hair short or long as per my wish
No stitching/suturing and removal of stitches – Minimal downtime
It is the only method of choice to get grafts from beard and body when donor area does not have sufficient follicles available for extraction.

Drawbacks of FUE

  • The grafts to be handled delicately, otherwise they suffer loss.
  • The procedure to be done by experts, other wise there could be overharvesting from the unsafe area leading to damage to delicate grafts and poor results.
  • As with any kind of surgery, transplants have some risks, including bleeding and infection. There’s also the chance for scarring and unnatural-looking new hair growth.
  • Complications are infrequent and even less common if the procedure is done by a qualified expert in a well equipped sterile Operation Theatre.
  • Around the time new hair starts to grow, some people have inflammation or an infection of the hair follicles, called folliculitis. This is preventable if proper sterile technique is used and precautions are taken during and after transplant. If it does occur, antibiotics and compresses can relieve the problem.
  • Talk with your doctor about these risks and how much improvement you’re likely to get from the surgery. He can help you decide if it’s a good option for you.

Sequel of Hair transplantation

Usually all of the transplanted hairs will initially fall out within a period of two to three weeks, retaining the roots in the scalp. Approximately, two to three months later, they re grow in the recipient area and thus require around 6- 9 months to see the complete result.

In FUE technique the grafts may not fall and keep growing, results are visible at the end of 6 months.

Important – You should be knowing this

Pain after surgery is well taken care with medicines.
The chance of infection is also negligible if the procedure is done in well equipped sterile operation theatre under aseptic precautions and proper precautions taken after the transplant.
As Local anaesthesia is injected some patients can develop swelling of forehead after 3 days which subsides in a week.
Follow-ups would be on day 3 for head wash and on day 10 to start regular medicines, and thereafter every 3-6 weeks for PRP sessions if the patient has opted for biostimulated hair transplant. PRP sessions are offered free of cost to all hair transplant patients.
Patients have to continue the medical treatment even after transplantation to save the existing hair on the rest of the scalp; transplanted hair does not require any treatment after 6 months.
