3 Questions that is sure to calm you down about Hair Transplant Surgery

Almost about two-thirds of the population suffer from hair loss and go completely hay-wire about its solution until they get literally bald by 35. If medications like Rogaine or Propecia are applied at an early stage of hair loss then it might stop the thinning of hair if not making it healthier and thicker. But this is not the case in most of the times.\r\nHence, the good news about it is the surgery of hair transplant is quite useful. But you might ponder on few basic questions, getting an answer to which might assure you about the process further more.

\r\n

So in a list of those questions these listed three would be a common one which can calm your anxiety down a bit:

\r\n

1. What’s the Best Type of Hair Transplant? 

\r\n

At first you must cross check with your surgeon about the type of transplant you need to get so that the procedure is well suited and adapted to your needs.

\r\n

Generally, there are two types of procedures:

\r\n\r\n

    \r\n
  • Follicular unit transplantation in which a narrow strip of your scalp is cut from the back of your head and is removed and dissected into tiny grafts.\r\nThis surgery is much improved that has been adapted in U.S. for many years.
  • \r\n

  • A newer technique called the Follicular unit extraction has been introduced with new tools and experiments. In this, doctors take small individual grafts from all over the head leaving no scar at all to hide.
  • \r\n

\r\n

In comparison to both the second one is a bit more expensive procedure but leaves no scar behind. It is advised to choose the second if your doctor permits because it is okay to spend a little more in one go rather than spending it in tits and bits over the long years for its cure.

\r\n

2. What Is a Celebrity FUE Hair Transplant? 

\r\n

It might be in your ears by now if you are researching about hair transplant that what is a celebrity FUE hair transplant and might have wondered how this procedure differs from standard FUE.

\r\n

To answer that, a celebrity FUE hair transplant is simply an FUE mini-session where a smaller number of grafts (500 to 1,000) are entrenched. The entire time taken for the surgery is only five hours, and the patient’s head need not to be shaved as it would be in a standard FUE surgery.

\r\n

It basically recovers faster and if you want to keep it all hush-hush then you might try the celebrity FUE or else it is nothing different.

\r\n

3. Are Hair Transplants Only for Scalp Hair?

\r\n

Hair transplantation can be carried in adverse donor areas too. It does not need the donor area to be the scalp. For example- in a facial hair transplant, strands of hair can be taken from bard to fill in the bald spots on the head. Or even vice versa. Hair from the head can be taken and shaped for the eye-brow surgery too. FUE techniques have expanded its wings to provide many options than simply taking hair from one part of the head to cover bald spots and receding hairlines.

\r\n

It is believed that after getting the answers of these three probable questions you must be sorted about the procedure. So good luck!
