How Hair Transplant Surgery Works
Hair transplant surgery has become a highly sophisticated procedure, which can produce excellent results for clients. Medical opinion now believes that on the human head are two very different types of hair. These are permanent hairs and transitory hairs. It is these permanent hairs, which grow at the back and sides of the head, that are used in hair transplant surgery.
Hair transplant surgery involves taking small grafts units of one to four permanent hairs, called follicular units, and then implanting them to balding areas of the patient’s scalp. These follicular units are surgically implanted in the scalp in very close proximity to one another . The grafts are obtained in one or both of the two primary methods of surgical extraction used in hair transplant surgery, Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). In FUT, a strip of skin containing many follicular units is extracted from the patient and then dissected into individual follicular unit grafts, the surgeon implants the grafts , in the recipient area of the patient’s scalp. Bald patches on the scalp are isolated and given the donor strip, which is two to three millimetres thick only. When the transplantation is complete it can take a few months for strong healthy cells to grow.
In the interim of the transplant taking effect, it is a very beneficial to use LASER THERAPY to speed up the process of the hair transplanted follicles growing strongly.
When not to consider hair transplant surgery
Hair Transplant Surgery is not really recommended to people, especially men, under the age of thirty five. This is because the rate of hair loss is unstable therefore you can have hair transplant surgery and then within a short while more hair loss could occur, leading to more surgery being required.
