We might all take our mane for granted but only when hair loss ad thinking become commonplace, that we realize that we are entering those bad worrisome hair day phases. Worry not, since hair-thinning can be curtailed with the aid of hair transplant.
Hair transplant is a kind of surgery that will help you move up existing hair to a post that has limited or no hair. Hair transplants are not a new method. However, over the years, it has evolved and refined all the way along.
The procedure takes place at your surgeon’s office and begins with cleaning up. Medicine or an anaesthetic is injected at the back of the head so that you feel no pain. There are two main methods that your doctor might pick for you, from among these-
- Follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS)
- Follicular unit extraction (FUE).
In case of FUSS, your surgeon removes a skin strip of about 6-10 inches from the back area of your head. Once done, the scalp is closed. After this, the strip is divided into a number of grafts with a single hair strand or multiple strands. The number of strands depends on the area where you are getting the transplant done, the fineness and quality or texture of the hairs.
In case of FUE, the surgeon shaves the back area of the head. The follicles are then removed one at a time. Once this is done, as in the case FUSS, your surgeon places each new graft onto the cleaned area where the transplant will be done. The procedure takes between four and eight hours.
