Medical Hair Transplants Techniques

The FUT hair transplantation technology that brought new levels of safety, accuracy, and predictability to hair transplant surgery is also advancing the hair restoration procedure.

Strips of hair including skin and its roots are taken from the donor area of the back and sides of the head where the hair is dense to the balding areas. A strip of scalp tissue, 1/2" to 1" wide and 4-5" long is removed from the donor area. The open cut is stitched together so that it can heal. The doctor divides the strip of scalp tissue with the hair into individual grafts containing 1-2 hair, called micrografts, or follicular units. Thousands of such grafts are needed to cover a small area of the hair transplants.

For doing a proper hair transplant, the donor area of the hair graft has to be with very thick full hair. So after hair is removed, stitched area will not be noticeable. Surgeons are cautious how close together they place the grafts of hair to ensure proper hair nourishment. Permanent scarring of bald strips will be left in this back hair area, which is covered by dense hair. Follow-up hair transplants are often needed to achieve the desired density of hair in the balding area. It takes 4 to 6 months after the hair transplant surgery for new hair to grow. Skilled doctors can perform natural looking hair transplants. Check the doctor’s reputation for his past hair transplants experience.

Who Is a Good Candidate For Surgical Hair Transplant?

According to Dallas hair transplant doctors, you are an excellent candidate for hair transplants if you are in the beginning stages of male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness and have thick hair in the donor area. People with the large bald area should not attempt to do surgical hair transplant procedures as a hair treatment for hair loss. Note that if you have diagnosed with alopecia areata, you are not a candidate to hair transplants.

What Problems Are Associated With Hair Transplants?

Hair transplant presents several problems as natural hair loss continues its progression after the operation and no one cannot stop hair loss, and it's the natural progression. The newly transplanted hair might fall out too. Be aware of a slight potential risk of bleeding, scarring or infection. Also, the results can be disappointing, if the hair is thin, there is a noticeable hairline where the hair was implanted, wild hair in the crown area, or a fuzzy re-growth, etc.

Is Hair Transplant Surgery - Worth the Cost?

Hair transplant surgery costs more than conventional non-surgical hair replacement system options. The hair transplantation procedure cost approximately $5,000 to $20,000, and additional costs are associated with complications if any arise. Since it is a cosmetic procedure, insurance companies will not cover hair transplant cost. Also, there are extra costs associated with laser hair therapy if needed after surgery.

Are There Surgical Procedures Other Than Hair Transplants?

In addition to hair transplants, there are other surgical hair restoration procedures called scalp reduction or flaps surgery. This surgical hair restoration treatment involves taking the skin with the hair and pulling it together to cover the balding area. The results are not attractive, and hair replacement or wig will be a necessity to cover it.
