Hair Restoration And Hair Transplant

The field of hair restoration, hair transplant has had an uproar over the past decades with new techniques and inventions. From the days of punch grafting to the present day of follicular unit hair transplantation. Techniques have evolved in the last 50 years, resulting in more natural (and aesthetically pleasing) hair transplants. The discussion of transplantation refers to micrografts or mini-grafts or, more specifically in current nomenclature, follicular grafts.

ANATOMY OF HAIR

Hair consists of a shaft and a root. The shaft is the visible portion of the scalp surface. The root or bulb is the follicle and sits at an oblique angle in the scalp. Hair grows at different angles, depending on the site of the scalp, and the proper angulation of the hair is key in hair restoration surgery to effect a natural result.“Follicle” literally means a “Hair Root”.

STAGES OF HAIR CYCLE

Most common type of hair loss in both men and women is Androgenic Alopecia/ Male Pattern Baldness. Other reasons could be some skin disease or scarring due to trauma.

Hair loss Causes:

  • Medical problems ( Hypothyroidism, pregnancy)

FOLLICULAR UNIT TRANSPLANTATION (FUT) / STRIP EXCISION

In this procedure, a strip of skin is taken from the patient’s own scalp and the hair is obtained by slicing thin strips from that portion and under a microscope extracting the hair follicle. The follicle is then transplanted where required. The scalp from where the strip is taken is closed with sutures. Hair subsequently grows in that region and that scar is not visible in the long run.

DIRECT HAIR TRANSPLANTATION (DHT)

This is the most advanced technique in Hair science, which involves the simultaneous extraction and hair implantation. This technique is a unique modification of the popular FUE technique.

Both FUE AND DHT give similar and comparable results.

FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION (FUE) / ROOT BY ROOT EXTRACTION

Specialized instruments are used to extract individual hair roots without making any long cuts in the scalp, this is the latest advancement in the field of hair restoration. These individual follicles are meticulously harvested and then transplanted in shorter time.
