How to Do Hair Transplant Surgery?
Hair transplant surgery is performed by transplanting DHT hormone-resistant hair at donor area to the hairloss areas. You can get aesthetic and natural looking hair after 12-15 months
The hair transplant is idolized by most hair loss patients. It’s due to the fact that the procedure can provide permanent result in promoting hair growth in the former balding area. The success rate of hair transplant procedure conducted in reputable hair clinics with an experienced surgeon is more than 95 percent. You may wonder how to do hair transplant surgery so the procedure can be so effective in promoting new hair growth.
The hair transplant works by relocating the hair follicles from the back or side of your head or technically called as donor area. The donor area or permanent area is where the hair follicles are strongly resistant to the DHT hormone. This hormone is the main cause baldness in your forehead, temple, and crown. The harvested hair follicles are then transplanted to the balding area. Since the hair follicles are DHT-hormone resistant, they will grow permanent, strong, and healthy hairs.
Hair Transplant FUT FUE
The hair transplant works with two methods, Follicular Unit Transplant(FUT) and Follicular unit extraction(FUE). The main difference between these methods is how the surgeon harvests the follicular unit Extractions. The FUT which is also called stripped method allows the surgeon to take a long strip of skin from the donor area which contains hundred follicular units and then divide them into thousands of grafts. In other hands, the surgeon in FUE will individually extract the follicular unit one by one from the donor area. The rest of the procedure is exactly the same for both methods.
The hair grafts are then transplanted to the balding area through incisions previously made. Once transplanted, the hair will temporarily fall out two weeks after the procedure. After few months, the hair will regrow and get denser and thicker. You should get natural and aesthetic appearance within 12-15 months after the procedure.
How Successful is Hair Transplant Surgery?
Despite the difference, the FUE hair transplant becomes the leading method preferred by most patients. It’s due to the less invasive procedure which involves no stitches and staples.
