Hair Loss & FUE Hair Transplant
Due to our busy and hectic lifestyle nowadays people don’t have enough time to take care of themselves. One of the most common consequence of this is hair loss. Hair loss can be attributed to various factors like improper diet, lack of hair nourishment, age, genetics and lack of physical activity. Although you can put a brake to your hair loss by making significant changes to your lifestyle but it is not possible to get back the hair that you have lost naturally.
But due to the advancements that science has made it is now possible to use your own hair from one your donor area and plant them to balding areas of your scalp. This is called FUE Hair Transplant. FUE Hair transplant technique has been able to counter the traditional myth which says that, "Once you lose hair, you have to remain bald for your whole life".
FUT Hair Transplant
There is another form of hair transplant technique used called FUT hair transplant technique or Strip harvesting. But due to the noticeable scarring as a result of FUT hair transplant technique, FUE Hair Transplant has been developed as an effort to overcome these problems with the existing hair harvesting.
FUE Hair Transplant
FUE hair transplant is a very effective hair restoration technique used nowadays to get rid of the baldness. It involves extraction of a hair follicle from one part of the body known as the “donor site” to the bald part of the body known as “recipient site”.
Although FUE hair transplant technique is similiar to the other hair transplant procedures it is very popular because its results are natural looking hair.
FUE Hair Transplant Procedure
The first step for FUE hair transplant is to analyze the patient’s scalp to determine whether they are the right candidate for hair transplant or not and also to determine the number of grafts required. It is also very important to understand the patients expectations from the hair transplant procedure and preferences for a hairline.
During FUE hair transplant surgery, follicular unit graft containing 1 to 4 hair are taken and then each follicle is inserted into tiny recipient site made by the surgeon. Circular incisions about one millimeter is made around the follicular unit with the help of an instrument.
Typically patient’s hair are either cut-short or shaved so that the surgeon is able to clearly see the patient’s scalp. In FUE hair transplant surgery individual follicles are removed so there are only small scars which are not visible to a naked eye. As there are no big cuts or wound, the pain is minimal during and after the surgery. The recovery from FUE hair transplant surgery is 7-10 days.
A patient needs to take a few precautions before the Hair transplant surgery. For several days, before the FUE Hair transplant surgery, the patient is asked to avoid any medicines which might result to bleeding during the surgery and leads to poor graft growth. A patient also needs to cut down on alcohol and smoking as it leads to poor graft life.
