What is Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant is a surgical procedure which is done to cover areas with thin hair or nor hair at all. The surgery has been in operation since the early 1950s in the United States but it has evolved with new and better techniques of transplantation in Delhi India. In this process, hair is extrapolated to other areas of the scalp with thin on no hair. It is an elaborate process that involves lot of care and attention.

In the normal process, the surgeon performing hair transplant first cleans the scalp of the client and injects medicine to numb the back of the head. The surgeon will choose any of the two methods mentioned below.

Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS)

In the FUSS process, the surgeon removes a 6 to 10 inch of skin from the back of a client's head. He puts the skin aside and sews the scalp and the area is immediately covered by the hair around it. Later, the grafted skin is divided into 500 to 2000 tiny grafts by the surgeon's team. Each of the graft contains single strand of hair or a few hair. The grafting is done depending on the client's hair type, color, quality and size of the area for hair transplantation.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

In this technique, the surgeon shaves the back of your scalp and removes the hair follicles one by one. The surgical procedure creates small dots in the areas which the existing scalp hair will cover. After the process is complete till this point both, FUSS and FUE, are almost same. The surgeon then cleans the area and numbs it with an injection. Then he creates slits meticulously in the affected area and places the skins grafts in each of the holes. Hair transplant is a bit tedious process and takes 4 to 8 hours to complete. The process is a bit painful, therefore, the patient will have to take medications for pain for a few days. In the initial few weeks the transplanted hair will fall and then after some time new hair grow on that area. After the surgery the grafted area is bandaged for a day or two.

Risks

Some noticeable risks are also involved in hair transplant surgery. Though surgeons discuss with the patients the risks of hair transplantation beforehand and educate them about how to mitigate the risks to a maximum extent possible.
