Let’s talk magic!
Yes, hair transplantation, a technique that works like magic on your bald scalp, makes you look younger and more attractive than ever, brings back the lost confidence and what else not. This technique has literally proved that nothing is impossible. Your personal and professional life will no longer be affected by that hair loss and will offer you your desired look.
The procedure involves moving hair follicles from a donor site to the balding part of the body referred to as the recipient site. Technically, a graft containing follicles that are resistant to balding is transplanted to the bald area. Not only this, the method can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts. Beginning from pre-operative assessment and planning where the patient’s scalp is analysed and decisions are made on the basis of existing density of hair, to various harvesting methods such as strip harvesting or FUE harvesting, it involves some post-operative care. The harvesting technique involves removing hair and follicles from a donor site where strips of skin from the posterior scalp, in an area of good hair growth, is harvested. Very fine needles are then used to make pores for inserting these grafts, keeping in mind the density and pattern to get a realistic hair pattern.
WHY HAIR TRANSPLANTATION??
Providing a solution to one of the major problems faced by us these days, this technique is well equipped to produce the best desired result as to successfully bring back the natural hair on the bald portions of the scalp. Are you not blessed with those thickly growing hairs? Well then, there you go with hair transplant at your disposal. With baldness posing serious threats to your look and personality; the technologically oriented process of hair transplantation can help you let your hair down.
IT’S NOTHING LESS THAN NATURAL
Many of us have this notion that it’s an artificial technique that involves the use of a hundred chemicals but let me tell you that the hair experts have a completely different say supported by research and experience. According to them, among all the hair growing methods, hair transplant surgery is the most natural and the results are such that nobody can ever tell if you got a surgery done.
It’s obviously not cheap but a lot cheaper than the other available techniques and methods. If you take into account the other hair loss treatments, you’ll realise that those costs are although small but never ending. Over a long period of time, the costs of temporary solutions will exceed that of a hair transplant. If you want a long term and permanent solution for your baldness then consider hair transplant surgery. Bearing in mind it’s long term effectiveness and the significant contribution that it makes towards hair loss, the technique proves worth its penny.
YOU GET THE BEST DONOR
Yes! Who can be a better donor for you than your own self! There is no fuss about the availability of a donor and you can start the treatment just when you want without ado. Isn’t that great!
UNIFORMITY OF DISTRIBUTION
One of the scientific advantages of hair transplantation relates to its uniformity of distribution which helps in the maintenance of your natural hair pattern and doesn’t make it look artificial or odd. The technique is worked upon with optimisation in such a way that your overall follicular distribution remains intact.
Just as every coin has two sides; users of hair transplantation too, have witnessed a few side effects that one should surely take into consideration when thinking to approach this method for getting rid of hair loss. Beside the good part of hair transplantation as a surgical method in fast treating the hair loss problem, there is some negative feedback in regard to the effect of the surgeries of hair transplantation which is mentioned below.
PROBLEM WITH THE SCALP REDUCTION TECHNIQUE
This rare and costlier than other hair transplantation techniques does not render as good effects as the other methods. It involves the removal of the whole bald scalp and new hair follicle-rich scalp being transplanted there with a surgical operation. The bad part being the possibility of tightening of the scalp resulting into thinning of new hair over a span of time.
The most common side effect that hair transplantation involves is hair thinning, which is usually temporary. Bald patches are also common, as fifty to a hundred hairs can be lost each day. Post-operative hiccups have also been seen in around 5% of transplant patients.
SWELLING AND ITCHING
Just after the treatment it’s pretty obvious to encounter swelling and itching in the operated area but it’s not long lasting. If this becomes uncomfortable, medication may ease the swelling. The patient must be careful as scratching will make it worse and cause scabs to form. A moisturiser or massage shampoo may be used by the patient.
