hair transplantHair transplants are finished via way of means of FUT and FUE methods.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a surgical operation in which hair is transplanted from the everlasting zone, the location withinside the returned and aspects of the scalp in which hair is greater proof against balding, to the bald or balding regions of the scalp. This is executed the use of certainly-happening companies of one, 2, 3, or four hairs, known as follicular gadgets. After the patient’s scalp is anaesthetized, the physician eliminates a strip of tissue from the donor location, a place in the everlasting zone, and, as soon as extracted, the donor strip is reduce into many character follicular gadgets the use of microscopic dissection techniques. As those follicular unit grafts are being prepared, the physician makes tiny holes withinside the scalp, known as recipient webweb sites, in which the grafts are located.
The association and positioning of those follicular unit grafts decide the cultured features of a hair transplant, and so this association should be determined on a case-via way of means of-case basis, relying at the patients’ records of hair loss and the probability of destiny hair loss. Since follicular unit transplants mimic the manner hair grows in nature, the effects, in professional hands, will appearance absolutely herbal and be indistinguishable from one’s unique hair.
One of the maximum vital elements of FUT hair transplant surgical procedure is stereo-microscopic dissection. This lets in follicular gadgets to be remoted from the donor strip with out being damaged up or damaged. During graft dissection, it's miles important that the entire follicular unit is stored intact as this may maximize its boom. Intact follicular gadgets can even supply the maximum fullness to the hair healing, as they incorporate the full, herbal supplement of one-four hairs.
In the FUT method, as soon as the neighborhood anaesthesia has been carried out to the donor location, grafts are taken as a segment from the region, after which it's miles closed with a suture. With this method, the recuperation duration takes longer and it leaves a seen scar withinside the donor location.
Follicular Unit Excision (FUE), previously known as Follicular Unit Extraction, is a way of extracting, or “harvesting,” donor hair in a follicular unit hair transplant process. In FUE hair transplant surgical procedure, an device is used to make a small, round incision withinside the pores and skin round a follicular unit, setting apart it from the encircling tissue. The unit is then extracted (pulled) at once from the scalp, leaving a small open hole.
This system is repeated till the hair transplant health care provider has harvested sufficient follicular gadgets for the deliberate hair healing. This system can take one or greater hours and in a couple of session, can be executed over consecutive days. The donor wounds, about 1-mm in size, absolutely heal over the path of 7 to 10 days, leaving tiny white scars buried withinside the hair withinside the returned and aspects of the scalp.
This approach of donor harvesting, eliminating follicular gadgets one-via way of means of-one at once from the scalp, is what differentiates the FUE hair transplant from a conventional Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), in which the donor’s hair is eliminated from the scalp in a single thin, lengthy strip after which eventually dissected into character follicular gadgets the use of a stereo-microscope.
Before the grafts are harvested, tiny “recipient webweb sites” are made withinside the balding location of the scalp the use of a first-class needlepoint device. The follicular gadgets are then located into the recipient webweb sites in which they may develop into healthful hair-generating follicles. The introduction of recipient webweb sites and the putting of follicular unit grafts are basically the equal in each FUE and FUT procedures. The distinction lies in the advent of the donor location and withinside the great and amount of grafts received with every method.
In the FUE method, grafts accumulated and transplanted into the wished location one via way of means of one. It does now no longer depart a scar at the donor location as it does now no longer require stitches. So the FUE method has emerge as pretty famous in current years. After seven days of recovery, the process is entire with none hint at the pores and skin.WHEN IS HAIR TRANSPLANT SURGERY NEEDED?
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that helps to solve the problem of baldness, thinning or poor hair growth. Up to 85% of men and women suffer from alopecia in one form or another. Hair transplantation for women with baldness is indicated in about 30% of cases. Everyone else can achieve good results with trichologist treatment. While hair transplantation for men is the only treatment option in 90% of cases.
Alopecia is a pathological condition that consists in the loss of hair from any part of the body or head. Alopecia in both women and men is divided into cicatricial alopecia (due to scarring, for example, after a burn or surgery) and non-scarring. Non-scarring alopecia has several types:
androgenetic alopecia (or, as it is often called, androgenetic alopecia) - associated with the male hormone dihydrotestosterone, as a result of hormonal imbalance;
mechanical (traction) - the cause is a frequent traumatic effect on the follicle (improper combing, tight hairstyles, etc.);
focal (nesting) - hair loss in the form of isolated areas;
diffuse - the skin loses hair evenly over the entire surface.
Unfortunately, not all types of hair loss are reversible. Basically, hair transplantation is indicated for secondary cicatricial, traction and androgenetic alopecia.
BASIC HAIR TRANSPLANT TECHNIQUES
Hair implantation is carried out by graft transplantation. A graft is a tissue element of the scalp with hair follicles in it. One graft includes from 1 to 4 follicles.
In modern plastic surgery, there are 2 methods of hair transplantation:
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) - patchwork method, another name for strip. A tissue flap (donor material) about 10 by 1 cm in size is cut out on the back of the head. Then small cuts are made from the donor flap, from which grafts are then isolated. An almost imperceptible scar remains on the back of the head.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a sutureless method; grafts are taken piece by piece with special microtrocars. This type of hair transplantation is the most aesthetic, which has been proven by a clinical study.
In addition to the basic methods, there are several modified techniques:
LHT (Long Hair Transplant) is a type of patchwork hair transplantation technique that involves transplanting hair over 2 cm long.
BHT (body hair transplant) – grafts are taken from the body.
HOW IS A HAIR TRANSPLANT DONE?
At the initial consultation with a plastic surgeon, the patient will receive all the necessary information: what transplantation technique is better to use in his case, how many grafts will be needed, where the hair follicles will be taken from. In some cases, several plasma therapy procedures are prescribed to prepare the scalp. All grafts are transplanted in one operation day. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Modern methods of local anesthesia provide complete pain relief for a long period. Anesthesia is used only at the request of the patient.
Hair transplant takes 1 to 7 hours. The first step is anesthesia. Further, with the FUE technique (seamless method), the hair on the back of the head is shaved, with the FUT patchwork technique, nothing is shaved off. First, grafts are taken according to the chosen method, then they are placed in a Petri dish. Prepared grafts are transplanted into pre-produced micro-holes in the transplant area. After the operation, the surgeon will teach you the necessary simple rules for caring for implanted hair during the rehabilitation period.
There is no pain in the postoperative period. The rehabilitation period is up to 7 days. From the second day you can wash your hair. There is no loss of work ability.
Hair from the transplanted follicles begin to grow after 3 months. Therefore, the first results will be visible in about 6-8 months. In the case of long hair transplantation, the result can be assessed immediately after the procedure. The growth of the transplanted hair is maintained for life.
The price of a hair transplant depends on the chosen technique and the number of grafts. Thus, the final cost of a hair transplant can be formed by a plastic surgeon after a consultation.
