What Options Do You Have – Hair Transplant Surgery

· hair transplant · No Comments

The most common plastic surgery these days is a HAIR TRANSPLANT  surgery, it doesn’t  even need an admission to a hospital. The fast life style of today’s generation, the world totally running around physicality, the race to reach at the top, the stress generated  to survive the targets given to office going crowds…. is all what has left us to secrete more and more adrenaline… adding to it is adultration of food stuff, a polluted environment …..has increased the number of cases of baldness..

In today’s topic I will cover the aspects related to this misery of HAIR TRANSPLANT.. needs and available options..here we are going to talk about the treatment options with us , not much about the causes.

Basically, hair transplant is the surgical procedure of bringing hair from the “DONOR AREA” which is the area from back of one ear  to the back of another ear. This particular area have follicles which are immune to Testosterone and it’s allied hormones, follicles from these areas are surgically removed and then planted/ relocated  to the area of needs like front and vertex.

We have quite a few good options in this regard, we will elaborate on these options, in the coming paragraphs.

1. FUT or FUHT:-  In this kind of HAIR TRANSPLANT a strip of the DONOR AREA, is taken out , by the use of scalpel and cautrery, the gap thus created after the removal of the “STRIP” is given a surgical closuer, in two layers, BETTER is to have a trichophitic closure , where one the margin  is cut reverse oblique, follicles may be left in the scar line to make it more inconspicuous.
The area of the STRIP could be increased by increasing ,the thickness of the STRIP, the length of the strip and course of the strip could be made serpentine. A maximum of 7000 grafts or follicles could be done in a Single procedure under best available STRIP, with best densities and thickness with best hands doing it.

THE BADS THIS METHOD DOES TO YOU

  1. It gives you a SCAR.
  2. It leaves you in pain for 10 days minimum.
  3. Blood is lost during the surgery.
  4. Nerves are cut in the procedure, and there are very long periods of NUMBNESS over the back of the scalp.
  5. Skin at the Back of the Scalp loses, a part of its vertical dimensions, and there is a feeling of stretching at the Back of the Scalp, whenever you look downwards.

2.FUE ( FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION)Some how this procedure came as a breather, after the purely surgical FUHT/ FUT procedures, though this procedure developed slowly, from 600 follicles in one sitting ,to now, up to  4500 follicles, in a sitting, depending upon the skills of the surgeon, the DONOR AREA of the patient ,in relation to his needs. IF your doctor is not competent enough to give you desired number of follicles in one single sitting, he may try to enumerate to you, the benefits of multiple sittings of 1500 follicles or so … be sure that’s his / her way of concealing his / her incompetence, no benefit to you, as you will take the ABUSES of LOCAL ANAESTHESIA twice or thrice.

3. FUE WITH BHT (FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION WITH BODY HAIR TRANSPLANT).. As FUE  alone, may sometimes  not be able ,to supply you the number of needed follicles  ( as yields with FUE procedures are not more than 4500.follicles usually)  a body hair transplant procedure, from the beard, chest ( usually) could be added, to it, to increase the number of follicles  and then meet the extreme follicle needs..

4. FUE WITH FUHT– Some of the surgeons, give this idea to their patients, its just because to facilitate themselves to practice the art of FUE ,while there period of  switching from FUHT/ FUT to FUE… THIS HAS NO BENIFIT FOR THE PATIENT.

5.FUE with PRP WITH MESOTHERAPY – Though PRP ( PLATLET RICH PLASMA) have still a lot of studies pending in favour of them, but in most of the cases it’s found to be a beneficial adjunct, to a procedure of HAIR TRANSPLANT, by any method, the platelet rich plasma adheres to the transplanted, as well as already present follicles over the RECIPIENT AREA, and help  in making the transplanted follicles grow early and giving health and thickness to the already existing vellus and sick/ weak follicles.

6. FUE WITH HAIR BONDING OR WEAVING – Whenever the DONOR AREA is deficient, then a front line  area, is covered with the transplant procedure, and rest of the back / vertex area is covered with the  partial wig/ bonding/ weaving, this makes the FRONT look very natural and also makes the wig or bonding 100% undetectable, few of the ace Bollywood stars are with it, can you guess them…..
IN THE END:—–
FUE is also known as FOLLICULAR UNIT EXCISION…these days..
Please decide your CLINIC and SURGEON carefully, thanks for reading the content of the blog..

Best Hair Transplant Deals For Hair Transplant in Pune

As the science of HAIR TRANSPLANTS is growing up and so is the need of people getting bald to make up their minds for a procedure, it’s very evident that the desirable method for HAIR TRANSPLANT now is FUE in most of the cases…

Before making a decision please try to understand the differences between FUE and FUHT in truly scientific terms.

I am not speaking a word about those who should not do a Hair Transplant (like technicians, BAMS, BHMS & BDS Graduates)

Most of the older lot of the surgeons prefer doing hair transplant by FUHT METHOD as they have learned it that way, these senior doctors may tackle with their AGE and EXPERIENCE in such good manner that you went thinking of FUE but turned to FUHT. But if you are thinking of FUE, do not let yourself to be convinced against your thoughts, as somebody is aged and senior.

Another group is of doctors, who say we will use both the methods, i.e, FUHT and FUE  both simultaneously…… according to me, this is a tricky business. As the doctor was trained in FUHT and now he wants to learn FUE, and he is using you and your SCALP, as an experimental material and subject. Don’t let it happen don’t be used this cheaply, this is cheating.

Sometimes the surgeon may use both the methods simultaneously for the betterment of the patient, It really is a happy situation but sadly seen very rarely.

Now there are those doctors and clinics, which promise and do FUE Only, here comes the need to compare few of the clinics…
Points should be degree and registration of the doctor with local, state and country bodies like MCI.
AGE of the surgeon may give some indication of his /her experience.

A doctor from a surgical background is better than a physician when comes to surgery and rarely arising surgical emergencies. Please take a written note of free PRPs WITH MESOTHERAPY.

Please see whether the doctor takes an accurate account of detailed history from you, past disease any sick episodes, environmental history some places are predisposed to iodine deficiency other like malaria and viral infection and allergies.. if the doctor is not asking then you should speak about it.

Whether he is taking your Blood pressure and doing a Skin Test for local anesthesia is very important.

Finally, the payment and mode of payment are important, the papers should transparently mention the number of follicles done indicating the area also. Hense, Sai cosmetics is one of the best hair transplant center in Pune.

This could be called the right approach to the clinic.

Best Hair Transplants in Pune A Selection

please do read these notes by Dr Amitabh Shrivastava…

Once you are sure about the need of a Hair Transplant for yourself or a close one, the first thing you need to know is  which METHOD  FUE/ FUHT  you are planning for yourself and why…  you need to know the pros and cons of both the methods.

As, I may suggest or understand it should be FUE, as it’s the method of the latest times.

Secondly, you should start searching for a good clinic, there are clinics that are too costly as may be they believe in SHOW AND BUMP, again you need to understand that, who is paying for the show—– right the last in the chain ( customer/ patient) ….. so deal it..

Clinics, that are very very cheap, then judge who is operating there a doctor or a technician. A doctor well versed might not be too cheap..

So , the best would be to know YOUR surgeon in person, discuss your case with him in detail tell his knowledge with your previous experience and read materials…

See some of his results, his celebrity patients, you can judge with your super fine IQ, is he for you and are you for him..
