It is expected 50% of the men around the age of fifty will lose a considerable number of hair. Women too by this age often face a similar dilemma. For this reason, hair transplants have been gaining a lot of fame off late and many people prefer to get these procedures done.
There is plenty of chatter about how they work and how effective they are. There are certain misconceptions about the whole process and here is some information about the facts of hair transplant surgery.
Hair transplant is the only solution which gives permanent results with actual hair growth. The reason is that the hair from the donor sites are able to resist the ill effects of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a male hormone which causes hair loss in both men and women.
Types of Transplants
There are a number of different options for transplants. Although, the transplanting process is often the same or similar, it is the extraction of the follicles that makes all the difference, both in the success rate and the cost of the procedure.
It is important to know if you are a good candidate for hair transplant. Getting one too early can mean that you may have hair loss from other areas and may need more surgeries in future.
Number of Sessions
Although it is best to get the job done in a single session, the number of grafts and certain other factors may mean that you will need a number of sessions eventually.
Cost of Hair Transplant
Hair transplant cost varies with each procedure and also depends on the geographical location of the hair transplant surgeon.
Getting the right doctor with a good track record is important. Someone who is not very good may mess up the whole procedure.
The new hair transplanted will fall away within six weeks. It’s a completely natural process and is called shedding. New hair start to appear in three months’ time.
Most people go through shock loss within the first two months to some extent. The healthy hair fall away temporarily around the donor and recipient site due to the trauma to the scalp as a result of the hair transplant surgery.
Maintenance is a must. Ensure that you follow all postoperative instructions to achieve best results. You will also need to take good care of the hair in the longer term.
The results mostly are great but it is crucial that the planning is done well and the doctor executes it with precision. Bad planning or execution can result in a bad hair transplant.
