Will Hair Transplant Really Work?
Hair transplant will work if it is done by competent and experienced hair transplant doctors. Hair transplantation has been FDA-approved since 1930’s and the results has just became guaranteed.
Hair transplant has gained the popularity for these past years. It’s an FDA-approved surgical procedure where the surgeon removes the hair follicles from the donor area to the recipient area. The donor area is where the hair performs strong resistance to the DHT hormones which are the main causes of the hair loss or androgenetic alopecia. In this area, the hair may not fall out or experience balding for the rest of your life. As you’re no longer suffering from progressive hair loss, you’re eligible to take the procedure.
Hair Transplant Procedures
Hair transplant procedures don’t create any new hair as the same hair will grow in the transplanted area. As it’s harvested from the permanent area, the hair follicles will grow hair for the rest of your life, which means permanent result. There are two methods commonly used for hair transplant, where a strip of scalp is stripped from the donor area (FUT) and where the hair follicular units are extracted one by one(FUT). the follicular units are then divided into grafts and replanted to the balding area and the striped area is stitched or stapled. In FUE, the surgeon takes the hair follicles individually so there will no stitches or staples needed.
Hair Transplant Method
The FUE seems to be the leading methods taking by most patients due to the less invasive procedure. This method leaves minor scarring and generates the density of hair transplant. Besides, the FUE hair transplant allows the surgeon to provide an even more natural appearance. After the procedure, the transplanted hair will fall out during 2-4 weeks after the hair transplant. However, it’ only a temporary as you’ll start noticing the real hair growth in 6 months. After 12 months, you can clearly notice the full hair growth and evaluate whether you’ll need an additional session or not.
However, the success of hair transplant relies on how the surgeon handles the hair grafts. The surgeon should professionally be handling the grafts including harvesting, dividing, storing, moving and transplanting to ensure the life of the follicular units. Transplanting dead follicles will cause pimples and grow no hair, this is a failed procedure.will hair transplant really work ?
