It is worth noting that hair can be transplanted not only on the head, but also on the mustache, on the beard, on the eyebrows and eyelashes. Today there are a large number of ways to combat hair loss. Below we will talk about the most famous and effective.
Modern Methods of Hair Transplantation
Before the doctor appoints a certain method, he conducts a diagnosis of the condition of your hair:
- The area of alopecia;
- Donor zone for hair transplantation;
- The condition of the hair and its growth in the donor zone;
- Presence of contraindications to the procedure, especially if surgery is to be performed.
Then the cost of the operation is determined and a method of treating alopecia is prescribed. It will not necessarily be operational. There are three types of hair transplantation; an operating method, a non-surgical transplant and a combined method.
Operational Method of Hair Transplantation
The operating technique, or in a different way the strip-technique of hair transplantation, is in high demand due to a good result after the procedure. It consists in the following: On the part of the scalp where the patient’s hair grows well, small incisions are made, thus revealing the skin flap. Further it is divided into micrografts, and already after the hair follicles are transplanted into the zone of alopecia. Ggraft in hair transplantation is a skin area on which 1-3 healthy hair grows. Hair transplantation by hair grafts is very effective transplanted hair follicles in 90% of cases perfectly take root in a new place, the risk of hair loss is extremely minimal. If the area of alopecia is satisfied is high then a year later this operation is repeated.
Disadvantages of this technique are as follows:
- The limited possibilities of the surgeon are only those grafts on which there are hair follicles;
- The risk of non-compliance with the growth and density of hair on the selected skin flap, which may not correspond to the area for hair transplantation;
- High traumatism of this procedure;
- Risk of edema of the face;
- Possible infection under the skin and the development of inflammation.
At the donor zone, after a hair transplant, a scar may form, as well as in the place where the skin site was transplanted. Unfortunately, the result is a scar that remains for life.
Recovery after surgery requires a certain time. As a rule, not more than a month. In a year, the hair will begin to grow better, become thick and bulky. Only transplanted hair will be slightly different from the available ones, however, it will not be visible to the ignorant person.
HFE Hair Transplant
This method of hair transplant differs from the previous one in that it is not operational. Suitable for any area of baldness, as a result, the transplanted hair will not differ in any way from its density and bulkiness. In the process of manipulation, not sections are used, but a special tube of microscopic dimensions.
How do hair transplant using this method: take special needles, with their help from the donor area, take a few hair follicles and transplant them into the area of baldness. The slots in this procedure are excluded. The technique is quite sparing because the hair follicle is planted exactly in the right place and at the depth that
This seamless method of hair transplantation has established itself well, because in a year it is impossible to distinguish transplanted hair from implanted hair. The patient again becomes the owner of a thick and lush hairstyle. Negative consequences of hair transplantation in this way are absent, the donor zone remains unharmed and no scars are scary to it. A seamless hair transplant can also be used in the case of transplantation on a beard, mustache, eyebrow. Donor zone can be not only on the head, but also on the body.
Advantages of this method:
- Thanks to local anesthesia, the patient’s body receives a minimal burden on health;
- During surgery, only the upper layers of the skin are affected;
- Absence of scars and scars after hair transplantation;
- Restoration after hair transplantation does not take more than 14 days, but after that you can wear any hairstyle;
- Hair looks very natural.
Another undoubted plus is that hair loss after this method of transplantation is virtually impossible donor hair follicles perfectly take root in a new place. Of the minuses, only one thing high accuracy of operation requires a longer time, about 8 hours.
FUT Hair Transplant
This method is also called patchwork, today it enjoys the greatest popularity. Donor zone for hair transplantation is the back of the head. This technique has both pluses and minuses.
Advantages of FUT-methods
- They include the following:
- Short operation, during which a large number of grafts can be transplanted;
- Suitable for patients with a large area of alopecia;
- Damage to donor hair follicles is practically reduced to zero;
- Thicker hair after transplant;
- The price for this procedure is not high.
Hair transplantation can not be performed without proper supervision by a doctor. Only he will be able to tell you how much this procedure is necessary for you, as some people are completely contraindicated.
FUE Method Hair Transplant
Hair transplantation using this technique is a fence of follicle associations together with skin areas with a special tube. The procedure is performed without cuts, but at different tissue levels. If the punch has a diameter of more than 1.5 millimeters, the grafts are divided into grafts that are staggered.
The FUE (Follicular units extraction) operation was first performed in the 90s of the last century, but to this day remains the most effective method of transplantation. This method is seamless, but it can not be called completely non-surgical, since the violation of the integrity of the tissues during FUE operation still takes place.
The whole operation by the method of FUE can take about 5-8 hours or more (the duration will depend on the extent and size of the zone of alopecia). Small scars usually heal in a few days, in their place are formed crusts, falling off in a week. Complications after FUE transplantation are rare. There is a slight edema and discomfort, but everything goes away in a few weeks.
Organic Hair Transplant
By this unique technique, before the extraction and implantation processes, the area of implantation of stem cell injection enriched with adipose tissue is first restored. Regeneration of cells in the target area before FUE transplantation with the support of stromal stem cells leads to a higher rate of live thicker hair follicles.
Organic Hair Transplant is a surgical technique that moves individual hair follicles from a part of the body called the “Donor’s Site” to the bald, or balding part of the body known as the “recipient’s site”. One of the most important causes of hair loss is a decrease in the quality of the scalp, so transplantation will provide only limited benefit without improving the quality of the scalp.
Stem cells are one of the most popular topics in the field of science, and this is a well-known fact. Currently, stem cells are successfully used in the treatment of many diseases. Aesthetic plastic surgery is another area in which stem cells are effectively used. It can be argued that the use of stem cell therapy provides a rejuvenating effect, repairing problem areas and organs. The method Organic Hair Transplant takes advantage of the benefits of stem cells at the maximum level.
Stem Cell Hair Transplant
Hair transplantation by implanting stem cells into the dermal or hair follicle, which fills the hair with nutrients, helps restore blood vessels and the appearance of new hair.
Compared to the PRP method, this method more quickly prevents hair loss, since it supplies an APC that has a greater number of platelets and helps to root out the root cause of hair loss.
Stem cells are very effective for regeneration, nutrition of wounds and blood vessels. They also help with hair loss, baldness, ultimately help the regeneration of new hair.
With full alopecia (completely destroyed and damaged follicles), the procedure of introducing stem cells becomes more effective for treatment.
