Hairs are a major part of one’s look that contributes towards the beauty. Most of the men experience hair loss or thinning of hairs as the age progresses, and for many people, it starts in the early 20s as well. It is normal to shed ~50 to 100 hairs a day due to hair cycle that is common in everyone.
Hair transplant is a minimally invasive surgical technique with which the lost hairs can be restored by implanting new hair follicles from the permanent hair bearing area usually the back or side of the scalp to the bald area or recipient area. Hair transplant is the best technique to deal with male pattern baldness that cannot be treated with available medications.
Hair transplant is done by 2 methods:
- FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant)
- FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
Both the methods are having their own benefits but, FUE works best when one wants to keep short hair and doesn’t want any scar on the head. Also, FUE is comparatively less pain procedure and has a faster recovery.
The answer to the most common dilemma, either if the hair transplant is a permanent solution to the baldness or not is YES. Hair transplant yields permanent natural looking hairs to the bald area depending upon majorly few things as mentioned below:
- The transplant is done on a healthy scalp and the donor hairs majorly taken from the permanent hair bearing zone that is resistant to the effect of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone).
- The patient is not suffering from any medical illness or sickness that might be causing the hair loss or stopping hair growth. Also, it is not recommended having the surgery if someone suffering from severe fever.
The recovery after hair transplant takes usually 12 months’ time for complete hair growth. No need to do any additional care for the newly transplanted hairs as they will grow naturally like old hairs and need general care only. Also, one the result came, the hair will remain life-long. Thus, hair transplant is considered to be the most cost-effective treatment for the baldness as it requires an only one-time investment that will yield lifetime results with almost zero or no complications.
Be ready for a comfortable hair transplant journey to get that younger look back again. Remember, your surgeon is the only one who can help you with all the minor or major queries for the surgery and it is advised to follow all the pre and post-operative instructions to be told by your surgeon in order to obtain the desired look.
