About “Hair Transplantation”

Types of Hair Transplantation

1. FUSS(Follicular Unit Strip Surgery)

  • In this procedure, a piece of hair is taken from the donor site, usually the back of the scalp under local anesthesia.
  • Grafts are dissected from the strip and then harvested into the bald area.
  • Will leave a visible scar in the donor area, which can be covered by the patient’s hair.
  • There will be some pain/ tenderness after the procedure.
  • The recovery period is slightly longer around 15 days as stitches/staples need to be removed.

 

2. FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)

  • In this method, individual follicular units are removed one by one under local anesthesia.
  • The recovery period takes less than 7 days. It normally requires very tiny punches between 0.6 – 1 mm in diameter or more. Closing and stitching are not required.
  • Painless minimally invasive procedure.
  • Body hair can also be used in FUE surgery.
  • A single long session or multiple short sessions are required to harvest the hair follicle from the blood area using FUSE.

Procedure for Hair Transplantation 

Before Procedure

  • During the initial stage, the physician examines the patient’s scalp, understands the desires of the patient, discusses the options, and guides the most appropriate treatment.
  • Complete health examinations are conducted on the patient before the procedure.

 During Procedure

  • Transplants can be performed as an outpatient in one day.
  • A shampoo and antibacterial agent are applied to the donor’s scalp before it is harvested.
  • Donor hair grafts can be removed by different techniques either by taking a single strip of skin and hair (FUSS) or taking the follicles individually (FUE). To maintain this possibility, the hair follicle must be removed completely.
  • After removal, the surgeon prepares the graft, cleans and freezes the recipient area, and places each graft.
  • The grafts are applied according to their density. The smallest grafts are placed in front, and the denser ones are behind.
  • Depending on the size of the transplant the process will take 4 – 8 hours.
  • Depending on the number of grafts, it may take one or more sessions.

After Procedure

  • The scalp may be tender.
  • You may have to wear bandages over your scalp.
  • Initially, the scalp was advised to be protected from the sun.
  • Post-operative antibiotics are commonly given to prevent wound or graft infections.
  • Shampooing is critical to prevent scab formation around the hair shaft which increases the chances of losing the transplanted hair follicle.

Similarly, in the natural hair cycle, within 2 – 3 weeks the transplanted hair will fall down but after a few weeks, new hair will start to grow from the transplanted follicles. This hair will remain thick and grow normally for about 6 – 9 months.

Tests for Hair loss

  • Consult a dermatologist, as male and female system hair loss does not require testing. Some tests that help to assess diffuse hair loss are:
  • The pull test – Hair pulled from three different sites of the scalp, usually less than 3 hairs per area, if more than ten, then the test is positive.
  • The pluck test – During this procedure, hair with roots is removed and examined. It depends on the stage of the patient’s hair loss.
  • Scalp biopsy – It helps in the transformation between scarring and other forms.
  • Trichoscopy – With the aid of a dermoscopy, the hair and scalp can be examined.

 

 Diagnosis for Hair Transplantation

It is an optional treatment where there is no possibility of regrowth of hair, in some cases like:

  • Androgenic alopecia.
  • Eyebrow transplant.
  • Receding frontal hairline.

Complications of Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation is a very effective procedure with no side effects but like every surgery, it has some risks associated with this surgery. It includes:

  • Infection.
  • Bleeding.
  • Scarring after FUSS transplantation.
  • Unnatural-looking new hair growth.
  • Some may have swelling of hair follicles known as Folliculitis.

 

Factors Affecting Cost of Hair Transplantation Surgery

The cost of treatment depends on the patient and several factors. It includes:

  • The hospital the patient chooses.
  • The cost of hair transplantation is based on the number of grafts and the kind of procedure chosen. The FUE procedure is more expensive.
  • There is a fee for the team of doctors.
  • Medicines.
  • Standard tests and diagnostic procedures.
  • Cost of protection and care during and after surgery.
