Hair transplant – method used in baldness or alopecia treatment. Thinning hair rows or complete hair loss are mainly due to genetic factors. Additionally, certain serious pathologies, trace elements and vitamins deficiency in diet, and constant stressful environment can provoke this problem.
Alopecia, detected at an early development stage, is cured with medication, topical preparations or apparatus methods. Mostly, the only solution is hair follicle transplantation.
There are 4 hair transplantation types.
Speaking about implant types, we note that donor hair transplantation is impossible – foreign hair follicles don’t take root in new organisms. For transplantation, doctors take hair from the head’s back and sides. If the hair there isn’t thick enough or damaged, grafts can be taken from the arms and other areas.
Hair transplants cost depends mainly on the affected area extension and its size. Additionally, it’s worth considering the technique the surgeon will use for the operation. This issue is discussed with patients separately.
Hair transplantation is necessary for people suffering from alopecia – pathology when the hairline rapidly thins and doesn’t recover. There’s no other cure for this disease.
Sometimes, hair loss with age is due to genetic predisposition. Hair doesn’t regenerate then. Even if health hazards are absent, baldness affects the overall aesthetics of people’s appearance.
Operation is performed under local (patient is conscious), or general anesthesia. Usually several sessions are required, between which healing time is given – 3-4 months, depending on the area size and skin type. Final result of some hair transplant operations is seen 2-3 years after the treatment.
Within a month after the operation, transplanted hair falls out – it’s typical. After another month, hair growth resumes. Sometimes, experts resort to dyeing the hairline to achieve natural color.
In the two-week postoperative period, patients must wash their hair first by applying special lotion, and then shampoo. Lotion moisturizes the skin, eliminating discomfort and allowing painless blood residues removal. It’ll be necessary to use special care products daily; they are given or recommended by doctors.
