Hello Sir.I have serious hairfall from 3 years. I took many medicines related to homeopathy, ayurveda, and alopathy. Hair fall is reduced only when I take those medicines. Later on hairfall starts again. I am 20 years old, can you please help me to avoid hairfall.
Hi, I am Dr PK Talwar. I am a cosmetic surgeon previously at Apollo Hospital, Max Hospital. And currently, I am working in Fortis Hospital, Nehru Place, New Delhi.
- First is through medication. To take medicines whatever are prescribed by a dermatologist and try to delay the process. Suppose after taking all the medications, PRP therapy, you lost your hair significantly, then the treatment is Hair transplant.
- Hair transplant is the second procedure for hair growth. In this treatment, we take the hair from behind the neck and put them on the balded area. In hair transplant also there are two techniques.
1) One is the strip technique in which the strip of hair is taken from the back of the head and then the follicles are put inside the balded area. In this technique, the scars are left.
2) Second is the Follicle unit extraction which is the latest technique all over the world. In this technique, each single graft is plucked by using the motorised equipment. Each graft consists of 1-2-3-4 follicles. The grafts are plucked from behind and the small holes type are created in the balded area where the same grafts are implanted. The process usually takes 8-10 hours. And the hair which we implant starts to grow after 3-4 months after the procedure. And the full growth may take around 8-9 months. But within 6 months you will find your head full of hair and you will be able to see the drastic changes in your hair growth. The full hair length will some time.
The next question which is frequently asked by the patients is that this implanted hair may also fall. So I would like to answer that this hair usually does not fall. As this is a male pattern baldness which is hormone dependent. The male pattern baldness is the hair loss from the crown area. But we transplant the hair from the back of the head or any other body area where occurs minimum hair loss. If the hair from the back of the head is not available then we take the grafts from the beared, chest, back or anywhere from the body. As the hair from these body parts is not dependent on hormones. So we have not seen any such case of hair loss after this transplantation. It will not last a lifetime but it will last for a quite long time. Throughout the youth, there should not be any problem.
Secondary thing is that usually, patients ask if there is any need to take a medication during the period. The medications are not required to be taken throughout the life but take antibiotics for few days and some medications like mentop or any such things which are usually taken for a year or 2 years. And after that, your hair will be as normal as they were before and you will forget everything. And you will live a normal life as you have overcome from the problem.
If you need any solution or suggestion for such problems, you can contact me through Lybarte for online consultation or book an appointment. Or you can take a direct appointment at my clinic which is in E34, Greater Kailash, New Delhi.
Thank you very much.
