It is not a secret that stressful lifestyle has been a critical reason for most of the health issues. In addition to that, there is a constant compromise on healthy eating habits. Because of the demanding schedule and constant race to meet the ends, people end up eating unhealthy food that has preservatives in it. Out of all the reasons, stress and imbalance eating habits have a direct impact on the loss of hair.
However, there is no doubt that there is a tremendous advancement in the medical sector. Hair transplant is a very common procedure that is used to tackle hair loss issues. Hair transplant is a simple procedure that can be completed within a few hours. This can allow you to get back to your day quickly.
Basically, hair transplant is the surgical procedure of bringing hair from the “DONOR AREA” which is the area from the back of one ear to the back of another ear. This particular area has 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.
Now that we have established a fair idea as to how the hair transplant procedures work. Let us understand the different choices available that will make your hair transplant decision easier.
1. FUT or FUHT:- In this kind of HAIR TRANSPLANT a strip from the DONOR AREA is taken out, this creates a gap that is given a surgical closure. 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.
2.FUE ( FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION)-After the purely surgical FUHT/ FUT procedures, this procedure seems satisfactory. Although this procedure grows gradually, that is, from 600 follicles to 4500 follicles, in a sitting, this depends on the DONOR AREA of the patient as well. This procedure can be completed in one sitting by an expert doctor. There are chances the doctor may try to count the benefits of multiple settings of 1500 follicles. To undergo the procedure in multiple sitting, you will be subjected to anesthesia multiple times which is not recommended.
3. FUE WITH BHT (FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION WITH BODY HAIR TRANSPLANT)- Unfortunately, FUE alone could 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 could be added 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, it’s just because to facilitate themselves to practice the art of FUE hair transplant in Pune, while their period of switching from FUHT/ FUT to FUE. THIS HAS NO BENEFIT FOR THE PATIENT.
5.FUE with PRP WITH MESOTHERAPY – Though PRP ( PLATELET RICH PLASMA) have still a lot of studies pending in favor 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 high Bollywood stars are with it.
