Dr Anup Dhir,  Senior Consultant, Cosmetic Surgeon, Apollo Hospital, New Delhi explains about how hair transplant goes a long way in building confidence for the young who suffer from hair loss.

 

 

To look good, a suitable hairstyle is considered to be a must for any individual. With change in lifestyle and various other complications, receding hairline or baldness is indeed a menace these days. Both men and women are susceptible to acute hair loss. Among men, male pattern baldness is considered to be one of the pivotal reasons behind such. Anyhow, days have changed and hair regrowth is indeed a reality. But the whole process of hair regrowth is dependent on successful hair transplantation surgery.

 

 

Nowadays hair transplant isn't a tricky surgery at all and so many celebrities opt for such. Let's make one thing absolutely clear that hair transplant is not done to increase hair but to redistribute the hair in bald areas. The whole surgery is all about removing hair follicles from one part of the body, which is the donor site, to a bald or balding part of the scalp, known as recipient site. Hair transplant can be done in two ways namely FUT and FUE.

 

 

The FUT hair transplantation method is an old method where a narrow strip of hair bearing scalp from the back of the head is utilized to fill up area with a bald or balding part of the scalp. This FUT aka strip method utilizes the strip of removed scalp into different grafts and transplanted in the target area. The variations such as hair type, colour as well as size of the area varies individual to individual and the concerned doctor decides on the number of drafts required. The placement of each graft is the most interesting aspect in this method. The FUE or Follicular technique is considered to be a modern method where hair follicular units are extracted as individual units and then transplanted. Unlike the FUT method, there is no visible scarring in the donor area and no stitches are required either. The whole procedure of surgery is also hassle free and once the grafts are planted in target areas, it is only a matter of time that hair regrowth begins to a bald or balding parts of the scalp.

 

 

Once the hair transplant is completed, the concerned individual has to be under medication as prescribed by the doctor. In most cases, people are back to normal within two to five days after surgery. Anyhow, in some cases where bald part is predominantly more, it may require additional sessions to have thick hair.
