Hair Transplantation Surgery – How Does The Treatment Actually Work?

How Exacttly does a Hair  Transplant Work?When you notice a receding hairline in the mirror, it’s pretty simple to disregard the condition and try to act as if nothing happened. However, there comes a point in life when ignorance is no longer an option, and you start worrying about your societal status. For a lot of men as well as women, baldness is a setback to their confidence level – something that heavily affects their social, personal and professional life. Most individuals think that baldness is a hereditary issue and there’s no solution to it. Thankfully, medical technology has introduced a magical relief to all your hair loss issues – hair transplant surgery.


Hair transplant is usually regarded as a safe and simple method for restoring the lost hair on your scalp. However, you need to appoint the right surgeon for it. In case you end up appointing somebody who lacks the necessary qualifications and experience, you may run the risks of infection and awfully poor results. In the first step of the transplant surgery, a strip of hair is taken from the donor section of your scalp. For most of the patients, the donor section is somewhere on the rear section of the head. Next, these grafts are relocated into the bald portion of the head. This process is completed within a couple of hours and the candidate is released the same day itself.


Generally, there are two types of permanent hair transplant treatment – FUT and FUE.


Follicular Unit Transplantation or Strip Method


This is the most effective and most popular mode of hair transplant. The biggest reasons behind this are its effective results and cost-effectiveness. As the name suggests, this strip method involves taking a strip of skin from the denser section of your scalp. Then, the donor section is stitched and the strip is separated into individual hair groups. Multiple slits are made in the in the bald portion and singular hair grafts are planted in them.


Follicular Unit Extraction


Here, the follicular units are taken from the minute puncture holes in the donor area. Next, the extracted follicles are planted in the bald section of the scalp. After a certain amount of time, you notice the growth of new hair from the transplanted section. Here, the transplantation cost is pretty low and reasonable.
