What is Hair Transplant Surgery?

The transplantation procedure is done by extracting the hair roots from the back and sides of thescalp that further implanted into the top, front, or crown areas of the scalp wherever the loss is affected. The procedure is either done by the FUT technique or through the FUE method. The transferring of hair roots involves the donor areas as well as the recipient areas. The surgical restoration is one of the best permanent techniques to sort out the issue of the baldness for the patients affected by the pattern baldness.

It is always advisable to receive hair restoration/transplant procedure only from the expert cosmetic surgeon having the utmost aesthetic sense and skills to meet the best cosmetic goal of the procedure.

The hair loss problem is mainly occurred due to the hereditary cause or genetic factors that are transferred from one generation to the next through the genes and makes a candidate susceptibility for future loss. The symptoms of genetic loss started with the receding hairline and the top, front, crown, as well as the mid-crown areas of the scalp, are affected gradually as a result of hereditary loss. The genetic baldness in men is rated on the Norwood scale has 7 categories, whereas in women is measured on the Ludwig scale.

Hair Loss in Men:

Hair loss in men presents the total baldness that affects the scalp areas, except the back and sides of the scalp.

Baldness or hair loss caused by the following Major factors:

  • Hereditary factor or DHT-sensitivity
  • Thyroid imbalance
  • Aging

The baldness in men is measured on the Norwood scale has 7 categories that are described through the following points:

  1. NW-I: There is an absence of bilateral recessions along the anterior border of hairline in the frontoparietal regions.
  2. NW-II: The frontoparietal has triangular areas of recession, which tend to symmetrical and extend no farther posteriorly than a point 3 cm anterior to a line drawn in a coronal plane between the external auditory meatuses.
  3. NW-III:The hairline becomes deeply recessed at both temples, resembling an M, U, or V shape.
  4. NW-III: Vertex: There is significant hair loss on the top of the scalp.
  5. NW-IV:The hairline recession is more severe than NW-stage II and there is sparse hair or no hair on the vertex.
  6. NW-V: The two areas of hair loss are separated, but the band of hair still appears and becomes narrower or sparse.
  7. NW-VI:The balding areas at the temple joins with the balding areas at the vertex. The band of hair across the top of the head is gone or sparse.
  8. NW-VII:This is the most severe stage of loss and only a band of hair remains around the back and sides of the scalp. This hair is usually very fine and shows that baldness is affected dominantly.

Hair Loss in Women:

Hair loss in women also caused by genetic factors and factors like aging, or hormonal imbalance. But, this is the most common consideration that total baldness is not seen in women. DHT or Di-hydro Testosterone is a catalytic form of male sex hormone, Testosterone, however, shows the genetic baldness more prominent in men rather than women. Women affected by genetic loss only shows the severe thinning and experiences a wide gap between the partition.

The pattern hair loss in women is measured on the Ludwig scale has the following categories:

  1. Type 1: Small amount of thinning that starts around your part.
  2. Type 2:It involves the widening of part and increases thinning around it.
  3. Type 3: There is thinning throughout the scalp, with a see-through area at the top of your scalp.

Medicinal option to cure Hair Loss Problem:

The medicinal option for treating the loss problem is only recommended when a patient is not eligible to receive the restoration procedure. It is a well-known fact that transplantation is one & only solution to sort out the issue of pattern baldness permanently.

  1. Minoxidil: It is a topical option and used as a solution or foam to treat male pattern baldness. It helps in the growth as well.
  2. Finasteride:It is an oral solution sold under the brand name of Proscar or Propecia. It is a medication used to treat enlarged prostate or hair loss in men.

Therapy Option: Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)

The PRP or platelet-rich plasma injection is given to the patients who need growth in the affected areas of loss. PRP is recommended for both the loss concern as well as the growth factor substitute. However, it is allowed both with restoration procedure and alone to the treatment of hair loss. The fresh blood plasma protein, known as platelets are obtained via the concentration process that further injected into the affected areas to induce the growth process and control the thinning problem.

One in five women gets affected by the hair loss problem, either caused by the genetic issue, hormonal factors, aging, illness or menopause. Women tend to experience a subtle thinning rather than a particular pattern or patches of baldness as is common in men.

The restoration procedure in women is done by the expert cosmetic surgeon and it is quite common like the restoration procedure in men. The restoration procedure is more demanded among men due to the pattern or hereditary baldness, but it is also quite obvious among women who are affected by a wider forehead by birth or experienced hereditary loss and severe thinning is now a major issue.

The Hair loss in women presents the following symptoms:

  1. Severe Hair Thinning:Women also get affected by the genetic or hereditary baldness, but the case of total baldness is not seen in women. Only severe thinning is quite obvious, especially from the crown areas and make a wider gap between the partition looks awkward. However, women need a hair plantation procedure in order to achieve the aesthetic look back with a better hairline design and growth.
  2. A Severe hair fall:Women affected by hair loss issues no matter what concerns are responsible experience severe fall requires care and a solution. The loss caused by thyroid imbalance or hormonal changes causes severe thinning and falls rather than presenting the baldness state.
  3. A wider forehead and a wide gap between the Partition:A wider forehead, either caused by birth or severe loss needs the transplantation surgery to re-achieve the aesthetic looks. A wider gap between the partition presents due to the hereditary loss or Androgenic alopecia needs surgical treatment.

  • Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors

  1. FUT Hair Transplant: The FUT or the follicular unit transplant is the technique of hair root extraction from the safe donor area only also known as the strip method of the restoration procedure. The hair roots are extracted via the strip excision followed by a linear incision from the back and sides of the scalp, scientifically known as the occipital & parietal part of the scalp. This gives permanent results as the roots are only extracted from the DHT-resistant areas.
  2. FUE Hair Transplant: The FUE or a follicular unit extraction is the process of hair root extraction based on a random process done one-by-one via a motorized or manual punching tool. The FUE technique is based on speculation or forecasting ability to extract the hair roots and so it is a faster method to remove a large number of grafts in a single time. The extraction areas are not just bound to safe donor and it depends on the needed areas to be covered to obtain the grafts, either made by rear sides of the scalp or it is required to involve other body areas as well.
  3. The Combined Method of FUT+FUE: The combined method of FUT+FUE technique is recommended when a patient requires a huge number of grafts to cover an extremely higher grade of baldness. When a safe donor area is not in a healthy state or nor has enough hair supply, the FUE technique can also be performed along with the strip or FUT method of the surgery.

How should I prepare for hair transplant surgery?

It is important to plan the procedure prior in order to receive the best outcomes. The planning is concerning the things that how it is executed and what steps are followed in the procedure to meet the desired goal of the surgery.

What are the steps of a hair transplant procedure?

  • The Extraction of Grafts:This is the first and foremost important step in the restoration procedure, either done by the FUT technique or through the FUE hair plantation procedure. The extraction done by the FUE technique is much easier as only punching processes are involved, whereas FUT involves a core surgical task in which strip is removed via the linear excision from the safe donor part of the scalp. The extraction process has a goal to receive the needed number of grafts to fulfill the implantation task.
  • The dissection of grafts:The dissection of grafts is the process of separating the grafts/ roots from their connective or supportive tissues and make them ready for the implantation job. The dissection process helps in obtaining the grafts in a viable state and keep it aside in saline water until the implantation process doesn’t start. Obtaining a viable graft is the foremost concern of the dissection job.
  • Creating the recipient site (Slitting):Slitting or creating the recipient site is done to implant the grafts in such a manner so that a surgeon can perform the aesthetic procedure by placing the roots in the desired location. Creating slit requires aesthetic precision where every angle and direction for the placement does matter and helps a surgeon to achieve the best surgical goal.
  • Making the Hairline Design:Making a hairline design is an aesthetic concern in the surgery requires extreme precision, skills, and talent. The hairline should be drawn by the performing surgeon according to the patient’s age, sex, and facial profile. The hairline should be performed according to aesthetic fashion and in an irregular way so that the natural touch of the procedure can be achieved.
  • Implantation of Grafts:This is the final step of the procedure that requires aesthetic sense and understanding and only a proficient surgeon can make it successful. It is a challenging job in which every graft/hair root needs attention in order to place it on the right location in the right manner. The implantation of grafts is artistic work and fulfill the goal of transplantation.

What Should I Expect During my Hair Transplant Recovery?

Every surgical procedure some sort of pain, swelling, bruising or bleeding and the same happened with the restoration procedure. So, it cannot be taken as a side effect and treated well with the prescribed medications given by the performed surgeon. The pain and swelling associated with the procedure will go gradually and don’t take much time. If the bandage is used, it will be removed a day after the procedure and headband are recommended to wear for a few days following the procedure to minimize the swelling effect.
