I m 17 year old. My beard had not came yet. Why this is happening with me? Will it be alright or not?
I have many grey hairs. Sir/mam how can I get rid of this? I have used many hair dies but there is no permanent effect.
Hair loss may not be a life threatening condition, but it can have a negative affect on a person’s self-image. For this reason, it is a good idea to explore hair transplant procedures for bald spots and thinning hair. This procedure involves harvesting hair follicles from one part of the scalp and transplanting them to another.
It can be performed either through follicular unit extraction or through follicular unit transplant procedures. The difference between the two lies in how the hair follicles are harvested. Follicular unit extraction is performed by harvesting individual hair follicles from various parts of the scalp while in a follicular unit transplant procedure, a strip of tissue with hair follicles is removed from the scalp and then divided into grafts.
When it comes to any procedure, “how much will it hurt?” Is the first question many people ask. Let’s take a look at the pain associated with this procedure.
The surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia and hence, most people do not feel anything during the procedure itself. However, in some cases, if the anesthesia begins to wear out in the middle of the procedure, it can be quite painful. Being put under local anesthesia involves injecting an anesthetic solution into the scalp to numb it. This can involve quite a few injections and can be a bit painful. The anesthetic’s expertise plays an important role in determining the amount of pain this generates.
The next thing you should know is that this procedure is a long procedure and a session can last anywhere between 6 to 8 hours. During this time, you need to sit upright with minimal movement. Though this is not painful, it can get uncomfortable. Your muscles may also protest at being in the same position for hours and get stiff.
After the procedure, your scalp may feel tender and there may be slight inflammation for a few days. Pain at this stage is generally minimal but most doctors prescribe painkillers to make the patient’s recovery more comfortable.
When it comes to pain, it is important to note that each individual has a different pain threshold. What seems mild to one person may be very painful to another. Hence, do not let yourself be too influenced by other people’s experience. Even if the procedure is a little uncomfortable, it’s effect on your self-confidence will make it well worth the effort. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Like good health and youth, most of us take a thick head of hair for granted -- that is, until it is gone. For many people, hair transplant procedures can help bring back the appearance of a full -- or at least a fuller -- head of hair.
What is a hair transplant?
Used in the U. S. Since the 1950s, hair transplantation is surgery that involves removing a narrow strip of hair-bearing scalp from the back of the head and using it to fill an area with thin or no hair.
Most hair transplants are performed in the doctor's office under local anesthesia.
To transplant hair, the surgeon first cleans the scalp, then injects an anesthetic to numb the area where a 3- to 4-inch strip of scalp will be removed. After removing the strip of scalp with a scalpel, the surgeon sets it aside and sews the scalp closed. This area is immediately hidden by the hair around it.
Next, the surgeon divides the strip of removed scalp into approximately 500 to 2, 000 tiny grafts containing an individual hair or just a few hairs each. The number and type of graft used depends on the hair type, quality, and color as well as the size of the area where it will be transplanted.
After the grafts are prepared, the surgeon cleans and numbs the area where the hair will be placed, creates holes or slits with a scalpel or needle, and delicately places each graft in one of the holes.
Depending on the extent of the procedure, the transplant will take approximately four to eight hours. Additional sessions may be needed if you continue to lose hair or decide you want thicker hair.
Expectations and recovery
After hair transplant surgery, your scalp may be very tender. You may need to take pain medications for several days. Your surgeon will have you wear a surgical dressing over the scalp for at least a day or two. Your surgeon may also prescribe an antibiotic and/or anti-inflammatory drug to be taken for several days following surgery. Most people are able to return to work two to five days after surgery.

Risks and costs of treatment
The cost of hair transplantation will depend largely on the amount of hair to be transplanted, but it generally ranges from ron request ask for the procedure is rarely covered by insurance.
Within two to three weeks after surgery, the transplanted hair will fall out, but you should start to notice new growth within a few months. Most people will have attained 60% of new hair growth after six to nine months. Some surgeons prescribe the hair-growing drug minoxidil (rogaine) to improve hair growth following transplantation, but it is not known how effective this is.
As with any surgical procedure, hair transplantation carries risks, including bleeding and infection. Other risks that can occur with hair transplants include scarring and unnatural-looking new hair growth.
Around the time new hair growth starts, some people experience inflammation or infection of the hair follicles, called folliculitis. This can be relieved with antibiotics and compresses. Another potential risk is the sudden loss of transplanted hair, called shock loss. Fortunately, this hair loss is rarely permanent.
If you are bothered by thinning hair or balding, hair transplantation can significantly improve your appearance and self-confidence. However, it is important to understand that hair transplantation is just that -- transplantation of hair you already have to a place where it is more visible. It does not create new hair.
To minimize the risks and improve the success of surgery, it is important to undergo hair transplantation only if you are healthy. You should always discuss the potential risks and benefits of any surgery with your doctor.
