Hair transplant is becoming very popular. That is why we have taken the pain to do extensive work answering some of the people’s important concerns about this procedure.

Finishing this read promises to be of high value to you.

What is a hair transplant?

Hair transplantation is a medical treatment for hair loss. It utilizes local anesthesia to keep patients from pain. During a hair transplant, hair is taken from a donor site, which is usually within the patient’s scalp, and then transplanted to the area of hair loss. If you want to achieve the desired result, you’ll need to undergo this operation under the expertise of a high level of professional competence.

There are two main techniques used. The Follicular Hair Extraction, otherwise known as FUE, and the Follicular Hair Transplant, otherwise known as FUT.

These techniques are very similar but have a very slight difference.

The main difference between FUT and FUE hair techniques is that the surgeon removes a strip of donor skin from the patient to extract individual follicular units, which are then transplanted to the areas where hair loss has occurred. On the other hand, individual follicular units are harvested straight from the scalp during FUE.

Can a hair transplant fail?

Hair transplant has proven to be a permanent solution to hair loss, with a total of about 80% reported success rate. However, this is only true if the procedure is performed correctly. Anything less than standard will fail and can also be detrimental to the patient.

Patients can also contribute to the success of this procedure. Normally, the surgeon gives post-operation precautionary measures. Failure to religiously follow them has a high tendency to cause the surgery to fail.

So, be careful.

Can I use another person’s hair for my hair transplant?

The simple answer is No. This is medically unapproved. The body’s immune systems will normally fight against perceived foreign tissues, leading to other critical health conditions. However, hair from other body parts can be used as long as DHT is resistant. But there are some unique exceptions where hair from another person can be used. The two major are;

Following a Bone Marrow Transplantation

 The results of a recent study published in the journal Dermatologic Surgery revealed that after a bone marrow transplant, a person’s body did not reject transplanted hair from a donor who also donated bone marrow. This can be explained by the fact that the blood and immune cells undergo replacement during a marrow transplant, and of course, from a different individual.

Bone marrow transplants are only available to terminally ill patients; healthy individuals are not eligible.

Identical twins

Having an identical twin allows you to receive hair from your identical twin brother or sister. This is because your DNA structure and genetic composition are identical to those of your partner. The consequence is that your twin’s follicles and scalp tissues will not be recognized by your body as foreign objects, making rejection difficult or perhaps impossible.

It is impossible to use a person’s hair as a transplant in any situation other than those described above.

What is the success rate of hair transplants?

Beyond the assurance that hair transplant can be permanent, you are also assured of natural-looking hair, especially when newer technologies and techniques are used e.g. the NeoGraft technique. With the FUE technique, patients should not be scared of scars.

When will my hair begin to grow after a transplant?

After a successful transplant, patients may notice the hair to start falling, maybe within a couple of weeks. This is normal. The procedure will cause newly transplanted hair to hall out, which will create room for newer hair to grow.

This usually happens within the first six months, after which you can have natural hair growth. Be sure to be able to live as normal as anybody. It means you can shave the hair and play with your hair like any other person.

What happens after a hair transplant?

FUE is said to have a faster recovery time than the FUT, and while this technique doesn’t require stitches, healing may take between 3-5 days, which may take between 7-10 days for a FUT.

During this healing process, patients may experience some inflammation, itching etc. these are normal and will fade off. Also, be sure to resume work after this recovery time fully. But be mindful to keep yourself from heavy task work for a while, depending on the doctor’s directives.

And lastly, remember to massage the hair softly within these recovery days. It will save you complications or even failure of the procedure. This is because the hair follicle will require little time to integrate with its new home fully. A disturbance may temper with this integration process.

Am I the right candidate for a hair transplant?

This is an important question.

If you have a bald or thin hair condition, you are a viable candidate for a transplant. However, certain other factors must be considered.

Age

People below 20 are not recommended for a hair transplant, especially for men. Below 25, pattern baldness may not be fully determined, which is important to consider before the surgeon recommends a transplant.

Overall health condition

If you have any severe health challenges, like cancer, etc., please do not do a hair transplant, except by professional approval from a well-certified doctor. This is because there is a risk of bleeding or any other complication.

What are the side effects of hair transplants?

Hair transplantation is typically regarded as a very risk-free operation. In certain cases, mild to moderate soreness and swelling and inflammation of the scalp may occur after the procedure. However, this is usually temporary (a few minutes, hours, or even days). In most cases, this is a common side effect of surgery that manifests itself during the first healing phase, and you should not be concerned about it.

Conclusion

Hair transplant may be considered a relatively simple procedure. However, it is dicey and may have serious health implications if not done by a professional.
