What is Hair Transplant and How Does it Work
The surgical restoration of hair in the bald areas of the scalp needs an aesthetic skill and précised surgical understanding in order to offer the best cosmetically accepted results. The hair transplant surgery is really a surgical procedure or it the combo of art and science always being an ear-raising question in the hair transplant fraternity. The hair follicles that are removed from the donor areas, especially from the safe donor part of the scalp, i.e., the back and sides of the scalp retain the DHT-properties despite being transplanted to another location and hence termed as the safest donor part used for the surgery. However, the extraction job is performed only from the safe donor areas, which allows a surgeon to obtain the best permanent hair roots for the procedure.
As far as fees are concerned to receive the procedure, the hair transplant cost is not a static factor that can tell with a certain rate as it depends on a number of factors and varies patient to patient. Every individual has own quality of hair and needs a different number of grafts to fill the bald areas and so the cost would be put accordingly.
The Procedure of Hair Transplant can be explained by the following Points:
The Extraction Process:
The extraction job is done by the two methods, known as the FUT hair transplant and the FUE hair transplant. The extraction is performed in order to obtain the particular number of hair follicle/graft to implant them into the receiving balding areas of the scalp. The FUT technique is considered to be the most suitable method as it gives the permanent hair roots via the strip excision.
The Dissection step to obtain the viable Hair Grafts:
The dissection of hair follicles is performed under the higher magnifications of grafts that are well-sure in terms of viability and sustainability. Precision is required at every step, but this needs it more than any other step due to the root’s survival concern. The holding of roots is also a very important part of the job as it is recommended to catch the root from the shaft’s part, not from the roots’ part. The recognized clinics use the higher magnifications such as 20X and 200X German microscopes to dissect the grafts that avoid the chances of damaging by enlarging the size roots for a clear vision during the dissection.
The Hairline Designing Step:
A Surgeon should have an outstanding ability to design the hairline as natural as it gives the person’s own natural beauty and aesthetic effect. The hairline design has defined angle and direction that offers unnoticeable results and makes it difficult to identify that it is unnatural or transplanted hair. The surgeon must have an aesthetic sense, knowledge as well as the practical approach to giving the best aesthetic effect of the procedure. Precision and skills are mandatory that come from an extensive knowledge and a number of years’ experience in the same field.
The Implantation of the Grafts:
It is also an artistic part of the surgery that requires an extreme proficiency and precision from the part of the surgeon’s job must be performed with deep knowledge and sense. The implantation should be done with a proper and pre-defined slit which are created as according to the natural angle and direction of hair roots. It must be irregular and in a zigzag form.
Why Hair Transplant?
- It gives permanent results
- The received results retain the original hair root’s character
- The transplanted hairs are free from the extra care or medications
- One can enjoy the normal growth of hair with respect to colour, calibre, texture, and length.
In the nutshell, we can say that the procedure of hair transplant is a complicated kind of cosmetic surgeries that require both surgical as well as the aesthetic skills to offer the best cosmetically accepted outcomes.
