Know about hair transplant surgery and its treatment

May 11, 2017

Hair transplant surgery is surgery that is performed to restore hair to areas of the scalp that are bald or that have thinning of hair. Most commonly, these involve hair transplantation, but flap surgery, tissue expansion of the scalp, and scalp reduction surgery are also methods used for hair replacement. Each of these types of surgeries can be used alone, or in combination, to provide the patient with the best possible outcome for hair replacement.

Hair transplant is a modern way of fighting baldness. People are no longer afraid of experimenting with this method for regaining hair. The procedure of artificial hair transplantation is in vogue nowadays because of the increase in the tendency of baldness in both men and women. While hair transplantation is considered safe more or less, the method is not completely free from risks.

So when can I see the results?

The hair planted starts growing after 2-3 months at the rate of ½ cm/month. The clients can see the results in 6-8 months. These transplanted/restored hair roots behave in the same manner as the hair from the area where they are extracted. These transplanted hairs can be cut or trimmed regularly after growth.

What happens during hair transplantation?

During this type of hair transplant, a surgeon will harvest hair follicles from a donor site on the body (usually the back of the head) and transplant them in naturally occurring ‘follicular units’, containing between one and four hairs, to the affected area. The beauty of the treatment is that it mimics nature, giving a far more natural appearance than previous techniques.

Side Effects of Hair Transplants:

Hair transplant side effects can be minimal if your surgery is done by a good doctor. But when severe negative side effects of hair transplants occur, they are big problems and difficult to treat.
