Hair Transplant In Nutshell

· hair transplant · Comments Off on Hair Transplant In Nutshell

Here, We are discussing about hair transplant in general. Basically a “hair transplant” is a surgical technique to remove hair follicles from a part of the body where here are healthy and are in abundance, so from there the follicles are taken and then transplanted to the area of need.
The place from where the follicles are taken is known as “Donor Area” and this could be like Back of the scalp Beard Chest and other body hair sometimes pubic and axillary hair also.

The area where the hair  are finally transplanted is known as the “Recipient area”.

Counseling is  the part, where the surgeon tries to assist the patient’s knowledge ,discuss with him/ her. preferably tells him/her, what is expected what is the susceptible density, he ( the surgeon) tries to know about the drugs Or local applications a patient was using, to fight hairloss, he so examines the donor area and the recipient area.under microscope also.

Methods-  usually hair transplant is done on a day patient basis under potent local anesthesia.
 methods are two
(1)FUHT, and
(2)FUE
FUHT- method is also called also  called “strip method” a surgeon takes a strip of hair from the donor area which could be 1 to  2 c.m broad and 20 to 28 c.m long.
This method leaves a scar at the donor area and is comparatively more painful then the other method,
 Another method is F U E in this method needle (CALLED F U E Punch) is used to dissect out the follicles from the donor area this method is less painful and comparatively leaves lesser scars.

Follicular unit extraction

This is done by using tiny punches of size0.6m.m to 1.1 m.m F U E can be done in smaller or bigger sessions going up to more than 5000 grafts depending upon the team of the doctor F U E can give very natural results, it has some potential benefits over the F U H T method, it will give very less noticeable scars, and no sutures, are given probable disadvantage in some cases could be more time consumed .

Post operative care-  Advancements in the wound care methods, have helped a lot, A head bath could be allowed to patient after 24 to 48 hours in most of the cases, this reduces by scabs formation and hygiene is maintained ,at the donor and the recipient area, Temporary loss of hair from the recipient area may occur in few of the cases. Usually it takes 3 to 4 months for the transplant area to show remarkable growth .

Side effects usually is “Shock loss”, shown by  some  75% of the general patients, however this could also be reduced a bit by intelligent guidance from your SURGEON and use of PRP WITH MESOTHERAPY,  meticulously.

At some clinics “hiccups” are also reported.

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

· hair transplant · No Comments

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..

HOW AT SAI COSMETICS WE MAKE HAIR TRANSPLANTS VIRTUALLY PAINLESS

· hair transplant · No Comments

1.  Locally ice or glycerine pack could be applied to the area which is going to have a shot of injection of local anaesthesia. In our opinion a frozen Glycerine pack is a better idea as it doesn’t melts down like ice and wets the scalp/ face.

2. After this step, Oint. Tetralid or other surface  anaesthesia could be applied in a thin layer, it would then be covered by a water paper or metal foil and tied with loose bandage  ( crape) for another 20 minutes.

3. Effect of topical anaesthesia would be attained early and more complete and deep by using ULTRASONIC VIBRATORS for 5 more minutes over the area.

3. Finally after waiting for 30 minutes the time to inject local anaesthesia comes. First do a skin test with 0.1ml of the drug, then
Local should be mixed with Adrenaline in definite proportions for normal male patients, hypertensive and those with history of convulsions or other contraindications and  all FEMALE patients should not be administered with Adrenaline.

5.For injections of the local anaesthesia needles used should be of 26 to 28 gauge.

6. AREAS should be given local injections as per their shape as large circular areas should be anesthetized with concentric rings of shots in alternate manner each circle .
Injections should be given pricking the needle in the anesthetized small area of the previous shot. A light local could be added to the tumunesce liquid too.. to enhance the time period of the effect of the anaesthesia..

7. A further shot of local could be given to the patients, with lower pain thresholds at the donor areas, with an intragleutal injection of Diclofenac Sodium if the patient is normotensive and with normal renal functions refer to investigations before transplant.

What age is correct for a Hair Transplant.

· hair transplant · No Comments
Hair and nails are scientifically vestigial organs of human body, hair is waste products of Nitrogen and Sulphur , the irony of the situation is so , that when you need these waste products most in your life ( to enhance your look and appearance) say between the age of 20 to 35 year, they cease to be with you.
A question is ” what should be the right age for a  Hair Transplant in Pune ? “

My philosophy applied to the issue is with the proverb ” A PERSON IS AS OLD AS HE FEELS “

Scientifically the age for transplant could be after the age of 26 years to 28 years. ,i;e, the time when the natural testosterone  starts dipping.

But I have given procedures to patients even younger than 20 years of age, the reason is that the boy has just crossed adolescent age and he is high on hormones, but is very depressed due to the hair loss disfigurement, so in a very sympathetic gesture explaining the science to him, and opening the  fact,  to him that he may get loses at newer areas, we can do a procedure on him.Such individuals are usually accompanied by their parents, who listen to the consultation/counselling very carefully,and are the decision maker.

Regarding middle age and older aged patient the average age is between 35 years to 45 years, the story is,that, he was too much in the battle of life taking the challenges of life, hands on, to make a mark in the society…… and when achieve that…. a fine day, he is relaxed…. he looks at the  mirror and notice the pigmented spots on his hands, extra melanin here and there one the face….a bald area on the top and a receding hair line….. he sits on internet and starts searching for a Hair Transplant CLINIC.

Bigger Transplant with FUE METHOD

· hair transplant · No Comments

Since the advent of FUE Method a lot of development had occurred…..

In the initial stages a transplant of 500 to 600 follicles was a big thing,and then on the merits of the FUHT Method,FUE Method used to loose the battle of positive credits, but as 10 to 13 years more passed those doctors,Who were extracting 500 to 600 follicles,practiced their skills to take out 2000 to 3500 in a Single sitting. I believe that such a change is usually seen in upcoming promising branches of surgery.

But with this advent few set backs or weeds also joined the main stream of good workers. Few of the centres were talking too much time to take out the desired number of follicles, This was associated with necrosis of the follicles in the dish, though improvement also occurred in the  field of the HOLDING SOLUTION…
Mainly with the  Temperature
Electrolyte ions
Adding Oxygen
Adinosine mono phosphate
And plasma  ( human or prepared).

IMG-20171113-WA0016

Any way this is true that the follicles should not be made to wait too long,outside the body.

Here some of us choose to

  • Tell an increased number of follicles to the patient,say putting 2500 and mentioning 3000 . Not giving any written and transparent account of the job they have done to patient.

Others preferred to complete the PROCEDURE in two sittings

  1. On two or three different dates far from each other.
  2. Two or three different sittings on two or three consecutive days.

As a patient and as a part of the doctor team I want to throw some light on this very important issues.
Most of the time I will try to be on the side of science or natural logic…

What happens when we decide to give a patient 3000 follicles to day ,and will call him again the very next day to give him 2000 or 3000 more, in this case when the patient is coming to the clinic next day,inflammation had set up in the donor as well as the recipient areas, and now to harvest or transplant more follicles from and to,  the area used the last day is difficult due to biological barriers. My point of emphasis is     ” what is the NEED??.

Science says do your best in the first day,and if you feel to give more follicles as per patient’s need …..
Call him some other date …. after one or two months..
Till the inflammation has subsidised..

Giving local anaesthesia to the patient on two consecutive days is not humanly and good for the wellbeing of the patient… it may sometimes cause severe hypokelemia….

Second procedure over the same area, will harm the previously planted follicles ad mechanical trauma and electrolytes diffusion from the cell membrane..

We can earn the bread by working ethically also, I am scientifically against the practice of two session instead I will put emphasis on practice more follicles in single sitting.
