Alternatives for solving hair loss and restoring one’s looks need to be taken after a serious consideration. The hair loss type and how long the results can last.
A hair transplant is seen as the best idea to restore hair in the various parts of the body. It is mainly a procedure where hair is removed from the donor area and implanted into the recipient area (thinning/ bald) to cover the patches.
The main target of a surgeon is to create natural and aesthetic results improving the hairline and creating a good density of hair on the scalp.
The hair transplant procedure
There are basically two types of hair transplant procedures one picked up on after determining the number of hair grafts needed and the predicted results. All hair transplant procedures utilize the hair on the patient’s scalp since this hair grows fast and stimulates the cells to produce more hair
The main players in hair transplant procedures are;
The donor area- everyone has got a donor area, that part of the scalp normally the sides or the back of the head where strong hair follicles are extracted. Though hair loss can attack any area of the body, hair in these regions rarely thins or falls out
The recipient site- that is the empty region of the scalp where grafted hairs are inserted into the slits made.
The techniques used
They are mainly two i.e. FUE and FUT
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
In this technique, hair follicles are extracted from the donor area one by one with the help of a micropunch and also inserted into the recipient area one by one or depending on the required density.
