The Ultimate Guide To Hair Transplants

The Ultimate Guide To Hair Transplants

We all want to have beautiful, luscious hair but due to a variety of reasons (age, genetics, illness, or just bad luck) sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way. Slowly our hair loss gets worse and before we even realize we have the dreaded bald spot! In cases like this, hair transplantation can save us.

What Is Hair Transplantation?

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure where the surgeon moves hair from an area of the body (the donor area) to the bald area on the head. The donor area is usually the back of the head. Hair transplantation is a restoration method that is permanent and looks incredibly natural.

Why Do We Get Hair Loss?

A little bit of hair fall is perfectly normal, as hair loss is a part of the hair growth cycle. New hair grows and old hair is pushed out. Occasionally, hair fall increases for reasons like stress or bad hair care habits, but in those cases, small changes in routine or products fix the problem fairly soon. Sometimes though, the hair loss grows so advanced that small changes are not enough to reverse it.

Baldness and hair thinning occur for many different reasons. In 95% of the cases, it’s due to genetics, hormonal changes, or age. Sometimes it can be because of stress or an unhealthy lifestyle. In rare cases, someone can suffer from hair loss after a trauma or an accident.  Baldness can be caused by medications, like certain anti-depressants, or blood pressure medications. It can also be caused by medical reasons like chemotherapy or alopecia.

Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that causes hair to fall out, usually in clumps. This is because alopecia occurs when the immune system attacks the hair follicles. The amount of hair loss varies from person to person. Alopecia can be caused due to hereditary factors, hormonal causes, nutritional deficiencies, etc.

Why Get Hair Transplants?

Growing bald affects a person’s head in more than one way. It makes people more insecure and more self-conscious. It affects their actions and behavior. In these cases, the best option is to look for a more permanent solution: hair transplants.

Before, people would use hair plugs or wigs as a solution to baldness or thinning of hair. But they were very noticeable and looked quite unnatural. This made people even more self-conscious of themselves. But then, hair transplants were developed. These days hair transplants look so natural that even hairdressers can’t tell the difference!

Not only do hair transplants look more natural than hair plugs or wigs, but they are also more long-lasting. Getting hair transplants is also cheaper than wearing wigs. Wigs require a lot of maintenance and they need to be replaced quite frequently. Hair transplants are attached to the scalp just once, and even if they fall out, new hair grows in their place.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate?

An ideal candidate for hair transplants: 

After deciding to get hair transplants, the patient must go for a consultation and follow the steps and instructions given by the surgeon, like quitting smoking. It is important to have realistic expectations of the results.

What Happens During Hair Transplantation?

Hair transplantation is usually done by one of two methods: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT). In FUE, follicular units are harvested from the donor area and then placed into micro-slits made in the recipient area. In FUT, a linear strip is harvested from the donor area and then dissected into “grafts.” These grafts are then implanted into the recipient area.

At Nishtha Wellness, Dr. Hiren Bhatt, an expert Plastic Surgeon, decides which technique is most suitable for the patient based on the individual’s unique case and his/her expectations. Dr. Bhatt’s priority is to ensure that the patient’s desires are fulfilled as safely as possible.

What Happens Immediately After The Surgery?

Most people see the results of the procedure between 6 to 9 months, while some see the results after 12 months.

What To Remember During Recovery?

Getting hair transplants is a simple and long-lasting solution to balding and hair thinning. But, for several weeks after the procedure, the hair transplants are in an incredibly fragile state. They need to be treated with care. A few changes to routine must be made to ensure the longevity of the hair transplants.

Getting a hair transplant is a very simple procedure with many benefits. Not only does it improve physical appearance, but it also boosts self-esteem and confidence. At Nishtha Wellness, Dr. Hiren Bhatt ensures that the patient is fully satisfied with the results. If you have more queries, contact Dr. Hiren Bhatt at [email protected].
