Hair is a valuable asset of a person. However, most people take it for granted and does not care about their hair, until it is completely gone. Hair transplantation procedure is the only hope for such people who do not have any or scarce hair on their head.
Hair transplant is a surgical procedure, which came into practice around 1950. In this procedure, hair is removed from the back of the head where it grows thickly and this hair is used to fill an area where there is little or no hair. Hair transplantation procedure is usually carried out in doctor’s office or clinic under local anesthesia.
As a first step the Hair Transplant surgeon injects an Anesthetic solution for numbing the area from where a two -three inch strip of hair is going to be removed. After removing the strip with the help of a scalpel, the surgeon stitch the scalp back. The hair around the area is placed above the surgery area to keep it covered.
Next, the expert team separates the hairs into hair follicles. There can be approximately 2500-3000 tiny grafts, which depend upon the hair type, quality, etc.
After preparing these grafts, the surgeon numbs and cleans the area where the grafts are to be placed. Holes are created in the scalp and the grafts are directly placed in these holes. It may take about 4 to 8 hours for completing the hair transplantation procedure.
The patient will be prescribed pain medications for several days as there can be pain and tenderness in the area of the surgery. Surgical dressing over your head will remain there for a few days. Antibiotic or anti-inflammatory drugs will be prescribed for 5-7 days.
The transplanted hair will fall out within two or three weeks after the surgery.
But they will start regrowing within a few months. Most patients have achieved 60 % of hair growth with a few months.
Some patients may experience infection and inflammation of the hair follicles. Antibiotics and compresses can be used to get relief from this. Sudden loss of hair known as shock hair loss can also happen to transplanted hair. Fortunately, this kind of hair loss is not permanent.But in DSFT technique which is followed exclusively at Satya clinic,Shock hair loss is reduced to minimum.
