One of the most frequently arising medical issues amongst men in the world is hair loss. It has been predicted as per the scientific studies that about half of the male population suffers from hair loss. Hair loss can be caused from numerous reasons but all of them do not lead to baldness.
As per scientific studies it has been predicted that 50% of male population suffers from baldness. There can be many reasons for hair loss and not all lead to baldness (alopecia). Maleswith family history of alopecia and having balding of more than 50-100 hair/day are well on the way to experience the ill effects of Androgenic Alopecia (AGA) or Patterned Hair loss.
Androgenic Alopecia or patterned hair loss is identified through a certain traditional pattern of balding, be it from the crown area or from the hairline itself. The AGA has been assigned various grades, i.e. from 1 to 6 for the convenience of potential patients. The kind of alopecia we are talking about here is something that normally begins with thinning of the hair and then further progresses into a bald patch. Now, this kind of alopecia can be treated through both surgical or by non-surgical methods although the most trustedway of treatment is hair transplantation.
Treatments available in the world, to get your hair back!
The procedure of a hair transplant is tremendously effortless – hair, or follicular units or unions are extricated from the contributor territory before being embedded into the zone where there is baldness visible.
Prior to a transplant surgery, it needs to be known if a person is suited for a transplant or not. Depending upon the extent of baldness, thickness of the hair in the donor region and the afterthe hair examination test, our specialists will have the capacity to choose whether a man can experience a hair transplant or not. These components will likewise enable them to choose which sort of methodology will serve a patient best. FUE and FUT are the two strategies for hair transplantation. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is the more advanced and developed strategy out of the two.
The latest and the most minimally invasive procedure for hair transplantation now-a-days is Follicular Unit Excision abbreviated as FUE. It uses an instrument, which is motorised so that individual hair follicles can be dissected precisely from sites of the donor.
FUE utilises a motorised instrument (we use SAFE Scribe from USA) to precisely dissect out individual hair follicles from the donor sites. The injury around every donor site is less than 1mm in size and it totally heals through the span of seven to ten days, leaving only minor white scars covered in the hair in the back and sides of the scalp. This is as opposed to strip harvesting (the conventional strategy for hair transplants) where the donor hair is taken away from the scalp in one long strip, leaving a long even scar around the back of the head.
Once enough hair follicles have been gathered, they are taken off from the donor sites using extractors. Small ‘recipient sites’ are then created in the balding area of the scalp, utilizing a fine needle-point instrument. The gathered follicles are set into these small slits, where they will, after some time, develop into solid hair follicles.
This medical surgery gives assured and permanent results and is completed in one day. So, it is an outpatient surgery. Dressing is given to the patient only for a day after the procedure is done.
Transplanted hair sheds around two weeks to six weeks after the technique and the new growth starts from the third month, in spite of the fact that the beginning growth rate can differ extensively, in each patient. Slowly the hair increases in both thickness and length.
Generally patients should wait eight to twelve months to be able to best appreciate the cosmetic impact of the medical procedure. Amid this time, the continued increase in hair diameter and length should noticeablychange how the patient looks.
