Hair Transplant - Common Procedures That Are Followed!

Hair Transplant - Common Procedures That Are Followed!

Who doesn't love a head full of thick, lush and healthy hair? It not only enhances our appearance, but also makes us look and feel young and spirited. So naturally, losing hair in copious amounts or going bald can be a nightmare for many. But with the hair transplant procedure, you can easily get a head full of hair and regain your confidence.

Hair transplant revolves around the surgical removal of hair follicles from a donor site of a body to a balding patch which is called the recipient site. The process is minimally invasive, and grafts containing hair follicles which are resistant to balding, are transplanted to the bald spot. This method is also used for restoring eyebrows, eyelashes, chest hair, beard hair, pubic hair and for filling in accident or surgical scars.

Here is a closer look at how hair transplant is conducted:

After cleaning your scalp, the surgeon will inject a medicine to make the back of your head numb.

He will then either follow the Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS) or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) to implement the transplantation.

FUSS procedure: In FUSS, the surgeon will remove a strip of skin, 6 to 10 inches in length, from the back of your head. He will then sew back that portion of the scalp, and it will be hidden by the hair surrounding it. Next, the removed skin strip will be divided into 500 to 2000 minute grafts, with each containing a single hair or a couple of hairs. The type and number of grafts will be based on your hair quality, type, color and the dimensions of the recipient site.

FUE procedure: In FUE, the surgeon will shave the back of your scalp and remove the follicles one by one. The concerned area will heal with small dots and the surrounding hair will conceal it. FUE technique is the latest and has least complication rates. It is one of the most widely accepted method of hair transplantation due to less bleeding, no linear scarring, faster recovery and better cosmetic acceptability of donor area.

In both the methods of transplant, after the graft is prepared, the surgeon will clean and numb the area where the hair needs to be transplanted to. He will then create slits or holes with a needle or scalpel and carefully place each graft in each hole. It might take 4 to 8 hours for the entire procedure to be conducted. And if you want thicker hair, more sessions might be required.

Here is a look at the other aspects of hair transplantation:

Recovery: Your scalp maybe tender post surgery and you may require pain medicines for quite some time. Antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs may also be prescribed. You will be able to get back to work in 2 to 5 days after the procedure.

What to expect: Though in 2 to 3 weeks after the surgical process, your transplanted hair will fall off, you will notice new hair growth in a few months. Often, 60-80% hair grow back in 6-8 months.

Risks: Bleeding, infections, scarring and unnatural hair growth are some of the risks associated with hair transplantation. When new hair begins to grow, some people complain of inflammation of the hair follicles, but this can be resolved with medication. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cosmetic-plastic surgeon.

Aloe vera gel is a natural treatment that has long been used to treat peeling skin. It is deeply hydrating, helping to restore moisture to parched or burned skin. Since peeling skin is often due to severe dryness, you must moisturize your face. Opt for deeply hydrating creams and lotions that are designed for dry skin.

Hello lybrate-user, there are various causes for rough hair 1) poor nutrition. 2) loss of moisture on account of environmental factors. 3) thermal damages to hair due to excessive use of styling products and heating appliances. 4) lack of proper hair-care routine. 5) hair damages due to chlorine, sun and chemical treatments. Here are a few lifestyle changes that can help you in combating the problem of rough hair in a more effective manner. It is important to keep your hair and scalp clean; but it is equally important not to wash your hair too frequently as this would rob your hair of the essential oils and make it dry. Shampoo two to three times every week and use a shampoo formulated to smoothen rough hair. Use a moisturizing conditioner and concentrate on applying it along the length of your hair and not the roots. Pay attention to what you eat. Include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Drink lots of water. Avoid exposure of your hair in sun and pollution. Consider using a sunscreen or you may like to wear a scarf stylishly or tie up your hair in a bun! this will help you to avoid making your hair rough and dull. Avoid chlorinated water, styling products and heat on your hair (for styling, of course!) as much as you can.

But sir meri skin pahili white thi but ab bahut kali Ho gayi to main phirse kaise gora Ho sakta hu plese tell me.

But sir meri skin pahili white thi but ab bahut kali Ho gayi to main phirse kaise gora Ho sakta hu plese tell me.
In order to enhance your skin you need to take care of your skin from outside. You may use a cream or moisturizer that contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid's (AHA's) like glycolic acid, lactic acid etc. AHA's exfoliate superficial dead skin cells and renew it with newer younger cells. Continued use of AHA's keeps skin in a state of continued renewal. This renewed skin is healthier, lighter and brighter. You may also opt for a few sessions of chemical peeling, particularly glycolic peel, from nearest approachable dermatologist. Glycolic peel utilizes a higher concentration of glycolic acid as compared to that present in creams/ moisturizers. The concentration that is available in peels is 20%, 35% 50% and 70%. Whereas creams contain just 6%, 8% or 10% of glycolic acid. I also suggest you to use a broad spectrum sunscreen, throughout the day. It should have both UVA as well as UV B coverage. Regular use of broad spectrum sunscreen would prevent tanning and also delay skin ageing i.e appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Some sunscreens are also fortified with vitamin C which has skin lightening as well as antiageing properties. Besides topical creams and chemical peeling sessions you may also take a few sessions of microdermabrasion to achieve the desired results. I suggest you to visit a dermatologist in your vicinity for more details and the needful. Regards.

There is always a solution but it is not always simple. You have allergy. Try to find the cause first. Like dust smokes perfumes pollutants pollens animal dander, fungus etc. Try to avoid it if possible take steam inhalation twice a day and antihistamines for 1 month than get back to me. If you improve doesn't mean you are cured you need to stick to treatment for sometime duration can be different for different cases.

Avoid using strong chemical containing product to use on scalp. Wash hairs frequently and do not comb in wet hairs. Eat nutritious diet and iron rich diet to avoid hair fall. Sleep for at least 8 hours and avoid stress. For medication consult me.

I have pimples and their mark on face what will do to remove these pimples and marks.
Dear lybrate user, *avoid more salty, dry, maida related junk foods, more tea, coffee. *consume more fresh fruit juice. *practice yoga, meditation, breathing exercise. *ice soothes the skin, particularly the affected area which can help your skin to become pimple-free. Applying ice on the skin will remove the oil and dirt trapped inside and reduces the redness and swelling. To get rid of an eruption, put an ice cube in a cloth and gently press it against the affected skin. Or one can also make it a routine to apply crushed ice or ice cubes to the skin in order to avoid pimples.
