"It is just vanity. You should look like what God made you" they say. By with that logic, there would be no shaving of face, no cutting or styling of hair, no cosmetics and no fashionable clothing. Men and women want to look their best and it is often for their own self and not to please anyone else. Looking good can often make us feel good and more confident. So let your inner beauty show and get those nails done, fix those hair and do what will make you feel good. A word of caution though, do not get addicted to cosmetic procedures, though.

A full head of hair does add a lot to your looks. With age, hair start to grey and fall. However, you may suffer from excessive hair fall at a younger age and seek help for this. There can be many reasons for premature loss of hair. It can be genetic, environmental or related to stress.  There are medicines and procedures that can help. If medical treatment is not sufficient to adequately improve the thinning of your hair, you may benefit from a hair transplant procedure.

What is a hair transplant procedure?

Hair transplant is a type of cosmetic procedure in which your plastic surgeon or dermatologic surgeon takes hair from the back of your head or the sides which are the preferred donor areas although hair can be taken from other sites as well like the beard area or even body hair. The hair follicles are then put in those areas on your head where the hair are thin or absent as in the bald spots.

How does a hair transplant work?

Before the surgeons begin with the surgery, they clean the head of the patient and inject a numbing solution. There are two basic procedures for hair transplant surgery namely follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS or FUT) or follicular unit extraction (FUE).

In follicular unit strip surgery, the surgeon removes several niches of the patient’s scalp and then stitches it back together. This is concealed with the hair above and below. The hair on the strip are   then divided into numerous grafts. These grafts are then planted on the scalp in the areas of hair loss to help achieve a natural look.

In the process of Follicular unit extraction (FUE), the team of surgeons works by shaving the back and sides of the patient’s head in order to extract the follicles from the scalp. The surgeon then makes tiny needle holes and inserts the grafts in the area where the hair are needed. After this, the scalp is covered with bandages. There are no visible scars with the FUE technique and this is by far the preferred technique for hair transplant today.

Post Operative course

After the surgery, the scalp is slightly tender and remains sore for a while. The patient is prescribed antibiotics pain killers and some anti-inflammatory medications.  Minoxidil application is encouraged after a couple of weeks. The top of the transplanted hair starts to fall out from three weeks to two months while the roots remain. This leads the way for new hair growth in six to nine months.

How to go about hair transplant treatment?

The first step is to know the reasons and cost of the whole treatment. Then you need to find an expert and have a detailed discussion with him. Further, you need to discuss possible side effects, risks and expected outcome as well as methods to further enhance the results. When done well for the right individual it is possible to get back natural hair in areas that need it and improve your aesthetics and confidence for years.
