What is hair transplant?
Hair transplant or hair transplant is a treatment that involves the progressive replanting of the hair. An ever-increasing number of people with baldness are turning to these treatments, which consist of surgery aimed at implanting hair in deficient areas. The technique is performed under local anesthesia and does not cause pain.
Why is it done?
Hair transplantation is performed to treat the problem of baldness in an effective and lasting way. In addition, it greatly improves the appearance. This hair loss can be for several reasons: genetic reasons or diseases such as lupus.
Most patients who decide to undergo a transplant are for reasons of baldness, both male and female, with hair loss in the front or top of the scalp. The patient must have enough hair on the back or side of the scalp so that the transplant can be performed.
What does it consist of?
Basically, hair transplantation involves transferring the roots of the hair from an area of the scalp that is still bushy to an area where there are no more roots. Thanks to this graft, it is possible to gradually replant the hair in several sessions, until the areas of the scalp affected by baldness are repopulated. The results are highly satisfactory as the extracted roots grow naturally in their new location. The transplanted hair is taken from the cervico-occipital region, as it is subject to the influence of the male hormone.
Preparation for hair transplant
Before the surgery it is necessary to take some measures:
Massage the recipient area for 5 minutes a day at least one month before the surgery;
It is recommended that you stop smoking at least the week before the procedure;
Perform the tests required by the specialist, such as analysis, electrocardiogram, etc .;
We recommend having a light dinner the day before, avoiding the consumption of alcohol;
Being fasted for the surgery;
Use neutral PH shampoos.
After the surgery, the specialist will recommend the methods and personal treatments to follow that will ensure healing. After the procedure, a surgical bandage can be applied which will be removed later by the specialist. In the following days, the area will be very sensitive and the specialist can prescribe painkillers.
The most popular hair transplant techniques are the FUE technique and the Strip or Fuss:
The FUE technique is, today, the most advanced technique. It consists in the introduction of small capillary grafts through follicular units. The grafts can be obtained from both donor areas and introduced by microincisions in areas with alopecia;
In the Strip or Fuss technique, a strip of scalp is removed, then a wound is made that will be covered by the hair surrounding the area.
