Are You Ready For a Hair Transplant ?

Hair transplant is the best option for getting back your natural hair. A good result of Hair transplant makes the front profile of the person better and it helps in increasing the confidence. But there are few important things which a person should know before going for hair transplant.

1) You should know about your Surgeon and his academic qualification, His medical degrees are recognised by state medical council or not. At Rejuvenate Hair Transplant Center Doctors are well qualified, Plastic Surgeon and also diplomate of American board of hair restoration surgery.They are member of ISHRS,AHRS and AAHRS.

2) What technique he usually does and his experience of that technique. In FUE hair transplant if surgeon is a beginner, there may be more chances of damage to hair roots. For FUT hair transplant, Team of the surgeon who will do follicle dissection should be trained to minimize the follicle transection. They should use microscope. Use of magnification loupe is recommended while implanting follicles. At Rejuvenate Hair Transplant Center both FUT and FUE hair transplant is done with equivalent good result.

3) TRANSPLANT UNIT- Does this unit have air conditioners to maintain low room temperature? Does his unit have power back up in case of electricity failure? Cool temperatures are mandatory for hair follicles otherwise damage to precious follicles takes place. Is this unit equipped to manage any unwanted emergency situations? Rejuvenate Hair Transplant Center is well equipped for all the facility.

4)CHARGES — Charges are per hair or per hair follicle units or per square inches. Also enquire about the density of transplanted hair.

You should be realistic about the result you will get; various false claims may confuse you. Keep following things in mind –

  1. Transplanted hairs are permanent, if they are taken from the safe zone of Donor area. But for the temporary hair you need medical treatment, otherwise they may fall.
  2. You may get a reasonably good density by Hair transplant but it is impossible to get the original density of childhood.
  3. You should tell about your diseases and medicines to the hair transplant surgeon.
  4. It will take 3-4 months for transplanted hair to start grow.
  5. For full result 8-10 months are required.
  6. You may need more than one sitting of hair transplant –if you want to increase density, or want to cover more area.
  7. Smoking may alter your result of hair transplant.

Myths about Hair Transplant

Myths about Hair Transplant

Rejuvenate hair transplant center Indore believes in clearing all doubts in the mind of a person who is going for Hair transplant. Some common myths about hair transplant are–

1) A hair transplant gives you an immediate result.

In Hair transplant we transfer roots from donor area to recipient area .These roots start growing 3-4 months after Hair transplant .Then they grow at the normal rate of 1-1.5 cm per month. Hair transplant whether done by FUT or FUE, if we want 4-6 cm hair growth at least 6 – 8 months are required.

2) Hair transplant cannot be done in Old age.

Age is no bar for Hair transplant; it can be done even in 70 – 80 year old person. The only thing is they must be healthy, or if have any disease like diabetes, asthma, or hypertension must be under control.

3)Hair transplants can be done in men only.

Hair transplant can be done in both sex-male and female. This is true that men suffer from androgenetic alopecia more commonly and that is why Hair transplant is more commonly done in men. In women also hair transplant can be done, FUT hair transplant is preferred in women to avoid full head shaving.

4) Transplanted hairs need lots of care and they may fall.

Transplanted hairs are like your other natural hair with the additional advantage that they do not fall because they are not having receptors for androgen. It should be very clear in mind that they do not need any special care.

6 )Hair transplant gives you original density.

It is very difficult to get original density of age 16 by hair transplant .If area to be transplanted is limited then you may get high density, but in case of progressive hair loss, we have to think for future also .By hair transplant even if we get 50%of natural density ,It gives a look of head full of hair.

7) Frequent washing of hair after hair transplant should be avoided.

Washing of head has no adverse effect on transplanted hair, you may wash your head as many times you want but with ph balanced shampoo.

8 Once hair transplant is done, you will not need it in future.

You may need more sitting of hair transplant in future if –you want to improve your density or want to cover your remaining bald area.

Why FUT hair transplant should be preferred over FUE hair transplant in young age

Why FUT hair transplant should be preferred over FUE hair transplant in young age?

Rejuvenate hair transplant center Indore is one of those few hair transplant center in India, where both FUT hair transplant and FUE hair transplant is done with equal good result. Rather this center is specialized in doing mega and giga sessions of more than 5000 grafts by combination of FUT ,FUE and body hair transplant.

But the biggest question in the mind of every person going for hair transplant is “what method should be preferred and why, especially in a young patient with advanced grade of baldness”.

In all patients donor area of the scalp is limited; it is like a bank FD which should be used judiciously when needed. Young patients are in the stage of progressive hair loss, they may need more sessions of hair transplant in the future. For maximum utilisation of the donor area, an experienced surgeon who is well trained in both FUT and FUE will prefer to do first hair transplant by FUT. Now if person needs hair transplant in the future remaining donor area is virgin and we can do hair transplant by FUE, if he needs more coverage or wants to improve density beard and chest hair can be used subsequently.

So if a person goes as per surgeons experience and advice ,maximum utilisation of the donor area can be used ,and he may get a head full of hair again even in Grade VII baldness and limited donor area.So plan of the number of grafts and type of technique FUT vs FUE should be customized according to the need of the patient.

FUT is more demanding surgery and needs trained surgeon for strip excision and trained technicians for follicle dissection under microscope, very few centres have these trained staff and surgeon .So these centres prefer to do FUE and a false belief is created in the mind of general public that FUT is old technique, causes lots of pain-which is not true, and because of this now a days maximum people afraid of FUT.But if a person is in habit of keeping his hair short then he should go for FUE.For more detail you can visit our website https://rejuvenatehairtransplant.com You can also look for www.ishrs.org –an authentic website of international association of hair restoration surgeons.

Can Hair Transplant give natural look?

 

Can Hair Transplant give natural look?

Hair transplant is a procedure where we transplant hair roots from donor area to the area where there is baldness. These hair roots may have one to four hairs. Implantation of the roots must follow natural pattern. Creation of Hair line is most important; it may be called as signature of hair transplant surgeon. Hairline should be placed according to the age of the patient –too low hair line gives transplanted look. Also low hairline will remain to be there for life long, as we transplant permanent hair here. So as age increases this will result into odd look.

In hair line always implant one hair root –this gives fine and natural look .If two or three hair roots are implanted in the front part of hairline –it is unnatural.

Hairline should be irregular, not a straight line .Hair should be implanted with transition in density from low to high as we go towards midscalp area.

Second important area to be transplanted is frontal forelock, area just behind hairline; it should be implanted with two to three hair roots, in high density.

Fronto temporal angle should be blunt in female, but in male never make it blunt otherwise looks artificial.

We cannot get normal density with hair transplant (80 to 120 follicles per square cm), but even if 50% of this can be achieved it gives natural look.

One thing should be kept in mind that donor hairs are limited, so use them judiciously to give best possible result. At rejuvenate hair transplant center, with the advantage of FUE, we do hair transplant by taking follicles from beard and chest also , beard hairs are thick so they give good volume. This is known as BHT (body hair transplant). We are doing routinely  transplant of 5000 grafts in two days by combination of scalp and beard /chest as a donor. This helps a lot in achieving natural looking result even in grade VII patient.

What is hair Transplant ?

What is hair transplant?

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves hair follicles from a part of the body called the ‘donor site’ to a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. … This hair transplant procedure is called follicular unit transplantation (FUT).

Is hair transplant Permanent Solution for baldness ?

Yes, hair transplantation is a permanent solution to your Baldness. In any hair transplant surgery (whether FUE or FUT), hair roots are taken from the back side of your head (also called as donor area) and planted to your baldness area (also called as the recipient area). Since these hair roots are permanent in nature, the new hair which grows from these planted hair roots, also become permanent. You will never lose them again. Hence hair transplant is a permanent solution.

The hair that grows has a natural look and feel. You can cut, dye or shave them. They will again grow back like your natural hair.

After 1 month of your hair transplantation you may temporarily start losing the transplanted hairs, and may continue for next 2 months. It is followed by permanent growth phase during which hair will continue to grow at normal rate. After the temporary loss phase, your transplanted hair will remain for life long without any medication or maintenance.

How permanent is a Hair Transplant?

Generally speaking, it is well established that a hair transplant is permanent. The hair follicles are taken from areas that are not genetically programmed to fall out such as the back and sides of the scalp. This is called the “Safe Zone”.

Hair transplantation is permanent. Remember though, the hair transplant procedure will not slow the loss non-transplanted hair. Other preventative techniques need to be used to prevent your original hair from being lost including a combination of medications, light therapy, and PRP.

Natural Looking Results :-

The newly transplanted hair is artistically placed to complement the natural growth of the patient’s hairline and facial features, giving the patient the most natural looking results. This approach creates a seamless transition as soft and silky as the original hairline, with results that look completely natural and undetectable.

Body Hair Transplant Surgery

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves hair follicles from a part of the body called the ‘donor site’ to a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. … Two techniques are available for hair transplant all over world—FUT & FUE. Biggest advantage of FUE is we can use body hair (beard, chest and Extremities) as donor hair for scalp.

Body Hair Transplant Surgery or “BHT” is an FUE procedure where the grafts (hair follicles) are individually removed by an ultra-fine punch tool from different parts of the patient’s body instead of the back of the scalp.  For example, from the beard, chest, back, arms or legs.it is very useful in advance grade of baldness as donor hair becomes limited in such cases. If beard and chest hair are good, they give very good result. Beard grafts are thick so give better visual impact, chest hair are used to give filling effect in between. So by using combination of scalp, beard and chest we can transplant all the bald area even in grade VII.

It is a very successful and viable procedure for restoring head hair, but there are a few things the Body Hair Transplant Surgery candidate should understand and consider carefully beforehand…for this consult your hair transplant surgeon.

Benefits of Body Hair Transplant Surgery

  1. The body acts as another donor area when the usual donor supply at the back of the head is insufficient.
  2. Most people want to remove the hair on their back, shoulders or chest, so the double benefit of Body Hair Transplant Surgery is that these unwanted hairs can be successfully utilised to thicken the density of hair on the head.
  3. The process is extremely simple and offers desired outcomes that can be achieved, if person wants to get more and more density of hair.

What is the Difference between a hair and a follicle/graft.

Scalp Hair grows in natural groupings of 1 to 5 hairs. ( one graft contains 1 to 5 hair).  In hair restoration surgery the term Follicular unit graft(FU) refer to a graft that has kept intact the natural grouping of hair as seen on the surface of the scalp.

Trichoscan showing Follicular unit graft

Trichoscan showing Follicular unit graft

The distribution of natural hair groupings in each follicular unit determines the person’s hair density and this has important bearing on the outcome of hair restoration.

In individuals with normal FU density may have a low hair density if single hair follicular unit is more than multiple hair follicular units. We have done study of 300 patients at Rejuvenate hair transplant center, India to see average hair per follicular unit in central part of India. The ratio coms out to be 1:2.3, it means on an average one graft yields more than two hair

There are significant racial differences in follicular unit and hair density Caucasians and Africans have more hair per follicular unit as compare to the Asians.

You can have follicular units of one, two, three, four or sometimes 5 terminal hairs, but they are all distinct anatomic entities, so keeping them intact during the harvesting process from the donor area maximises the chances of successful regrowth once they are implanted into the recipient area of the scalp.

A follicular unit will contain a single hair or multiple hairs grouped together, and also contains sebaceous (oil) glands, nerves, a small muscle, and occasional vellus hair, which are finer than the normal scalp hair.

Micro graft is the term used for one or 2 hair graft trimmed away from larger graft for use at the hairline.

One of the important aspect of hair transplant is selecting the correct number of follicular unit for a recipient area in order create the natural look and to optimize the density – for example, the hair line zone will require many single follicle units in the first few millimetres and then double hair units; whereas filling in on the central parts of the head may benefit from units with 3 or 4 hairs.

The goal is to maximise the cosmetic impact of the transplanted hair, and to ensure optimal growth. Follicular units are also referred to as ‘grafts’, so when the surgeon speaks about the number of grafts required for a transplant he’s talking about the number of follicular units he can safely take from a donor area to cover the balding regions of the scalp.( to understand 2000 grafts yields more than 4000 hair).

Cost of hair transplant will depends on number of grafts required. The number of grafts required will depend on individual patient factors such as hair density; availability of hair in the donor area and the characteristics of that hair, as well as the degree and progression of baldness.

Hair transplant surgery prices should always be based on the number of grafts transplanted, and not the number of hairs.

There are two primary methods of taking grafts from the donor area; Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), which uses a punch-like tool to excise individual follicular units of varying sizes, and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) during which the surgeon takes a strip of scalp from the donor area at the back of the head and dissects it into individual follicular units to use for implantation.

Hair transplant Some important facts

Hair transplant Some important facts

  1. Have reasonable expectations- remember that donor hair is limited, so unlimited hair transplant is not possible.
  2. Discuss your option with your hair transplant surgeon to understand what can be achieved and what cannot be achieved.
  3. Understand that most patients need combination approaches; drugs, hair transplantation. Remember hair loss is a continuous process where as Hair transplantation is a one day event. Hair transplant corrects the baldness which has happened-it can’t prevent hair loss in future.
  4. Drugs are useful therefore to prevent future hair loss. However, none of the drugs are a cure for baldness-


    THERE IS NO MEDICAL DRUG CURE FOR BALDNESS- DO NOT EXPECT THIS.
  1. Do not be excessively worried about side effects by reading individual opinions- the drugs available have been in use for decades. Discuss with your doctor about these side effects. Read authoritative websites such as ishrs.org or FDA IN USA or ahrsindia.org.
  2. Do not resort to unsubstantiated treatments without seeking proof; eg. Apple stem cells, mesotherapy with injections. Remember; if hairs could be grown easily, there would be no bald men in the world.
  3. Don’t be misled by advertisements which have exaggerated content; some examples include “unlimited hairs” scar less transplant”
  4. Don’t be too confused about FUT and FUE- after all these are only methods for donor hair harvesting; REMEMBER-you are doing HT to get results in front or the bald area. What is important is to first determine which method gives you best results to cover the front area. Discuss the option with the doctor and with his assessment opt for the best method, suited to you.
  5. Take care of grafts properly after the HT. adhere to the instructions.
  6. Do not be too anxious about the growth of hairs after HT-the hairs take time for growth- doesn’t asses it by days or weeks. Be patient.
  7. Any issues or side effects, consult your doctor. Do not jump into conclusions. Remember – most hair transplant are without side effects-even if they occur they are minor.
  8. Always have a plan for future. Hair loss is not to be treated in one session or one visit. It needs planning, understanding and execution.
