What is Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant is a procedure in which a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon moves hair to an area of the head that has thinned or no hair. The surgeon typically takes small sections of hair (called follicular units) from an area of dense hair growth and transplants them into the desired area.
Hair transplants are usually done under local anesthesia with sedation (twilight anesthesia), meaning you’ll be awake but will not remember the procedure. This type of surgery takes several hours and is usually done in an outpatient setting.
Transplanted hair falls out within a few weeks, but regrows within months. The new hair may be slightly different in color and texture from your other hair. And it may take time before it reaches its full thickness.
Benefits of Hair Transplant
The first and most obvious benefit of hair transplant surgery is the restoration of hair to the treated area of the scalp. This can greatly improve a person’s appearance and self-confidence.
In addition, hair transplant surgery can also help to correct certain medical conditions that cause hair loss, such as alopecia areata. Hair transplant surgery can also be used to improve the results of previous hair loss treatments, such as scalp reduction surgery or flap surgery.
Finally, hair transplant surgery can be a permanent solution to hair loss that does not require ongoing maintenance or medical treatments.
Preparation for Hair Transplant
The first step in preparing for a hair transplant is to consult with a hair loss specialist to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure. If you are determined to be a good candidate, the next step is to begin planning for your transplant. This includes choosing the right surgeon, selecting the correct donor area, and ensuring that you are healthy enough to undergo surgery. Once all of these factors have been taken into consideration, you will be ready to move forward with your hair transplant.
Before the procedure, you will need to stop using any medications that contain aspirin or ibuprofen for at least 1 week prior. In addition, you may need to adjust any other medications or supplements as instructed by your doctor. After the initial planning and preparation is complete, you should ensure that your scalp and hair are well prepared for surgery. This means thoroughly washing and drying your hair multiple times before the transplant begins. Finally, make sure that you have all of the necessary aftercare supplies ready before and after the procedure so that you can keep your head clean and protected during healing.
Procedure of the Hair Transplant
A hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure that is used to treat hair loss. The procedure involves taking hair from an area of the scalp that is not affected by hair loss and transplanting it to the areas of the scalp that are affected by hair loss.
There are two different types of procedures that can be used to perform a hair transplant: follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). FUT is the more common of the two procedures, and it involves taking a strip of skin from the back of the head and then dividing it into small grafts containing one or two hairs each. These grafts are then transplanted to the areas of the scalp that are affected by hair loss.
FUE is a newer procedure that does not involve taking a strip of skin from the back of the head. Instead, individual follicles are harvested from the donor area using a special punch tool and then transplanted to the recipient area.
Both FUT and FUE can be performed using local anesthesia, and both procedures have similar success rates. It typically takes several months for newly transplanted hair to begin growing, and most patients will see full results within one year.
4 Months Results After a Hair Transplant
It is normal to lose some hair in the months following a hair transplant. This is called “shock loss” and usually affects the transplanted hair as well as the surrounding non-transplanted hair. Shock loss is usually temporary and the hair will grow back within 6-12 months.
In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to help your hair grow back faster and healthier:
1. Avoid tight hairstyles: During the first few months after your transplant, avoid hairstyles that pull on your transplanted hair or put excessive pressure on your scalp. This includes tight ponytails, buns, or braids.
2. Protect your scalp from the sun: Be sure to wear a hat or scarf when outdoors to protect your scalp from the sun’s harmful rays.
3. Avoid smoking and secondhand smoke: Smoking inhibits blood flow to the scalp and interferes with healing after surgery. If you smoke, it’s best to quit before undergoing a hair transplant. Additionally, avoid exposure to secondhand smoke as much as possible.
Comparison Between 4 Month and 12 Month Results of a Hair Transplant
A hair transplant is a surgical procedure that moves hair from one part of the body to another. It is most commonly used to treat male pattern baldness. Hair transplants can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair, and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. Hair transplants are usually done under local anesthesia.
The four-month results of a hair transplant show significant improvement from the pre-operative state. There is 70-80% growth of newly transplanted hairs. The average density of these hairs is 40-50 follicular units/cm2. The 12-month results following a hair transplant are even more impressive with nearly complete growth of newly transplanted hairs (95%). The average density at 12 months is 60-70 follicular units/cm2. These results are much better than the typical results seen with medical therapy for pattern baldness (2-5% at best).
Tips on How to Take Care of Your New Hair After a Hair Transplant
After you have a hair transplant, it is important to take care of your new hair. Here are some tips on how to do that:
1. Keep your head clean and dry.
2. Avoid using harsh chemicals or heat on your hair.
3. Be gentle with your new hair. Avoid brushing it too hard or pulling on it.
4. Protect your hair from the sun by wearing a hat or using sunscreen on your scalp.
5. Ask your doctor about products that are safe to use on transplanted hair.
Hair transplants can be a great way to restore hair growth and revive your look. After 4 months of care, you should start to see positive results from the procedure. Of course, individual results may vary for each person as the success of a hair transplant depends on many factors such as age, type of procedure, and underlying health conditions. Ultimately, if you are considering getting a hair transplant make sure to thoroughly research all options available before making any decisions and follow up regularly with your doctor throughout the healing process.
