A hair transplant is a medical procedure in which hair follicles are obtained from a donor area on the patient’s scalp and implanted where the hair is thin and in bald areas. Hair transplant has proven to be very effective.
Types of Hair Transplant Methods
1. FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)
It is also known as FUSS (Follicular Unit Strip Surgery). FUT is an effective procedure. In this procedure, the surgeon removes a piece of scalp using a scalpel. Usually this area is at the back of the patient’s head. Strip size could range between 6 to 10 inches and sometimes it is from ear to ear.
The area from where the scalp was removed is closed with stitches. Now the scalp strip is fragmented into as many as 2000 pieces. These fragmented smaller pieces are known as ‘Grafts’. Each graft may contain just one hair. Now using a needle or blade small holes are made on your scalp and hair is transplanted with utmost safety and hair. After inserting hair into the punctured holes using this procedure called ‘Grafting’, the surgical areas are covered with gauze and bandages. Hair transplant clinics in Ahmedabad are known for carrying out this procedure with a high success ratio.
2. FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
FUE is slightly different than FUT. In this procedure, the hair on the back of your head is shaved and then individual follicles are taken out of the scalp skin. Tiny marks can be seen at places where the follicles were removed. Now, exactly like FUT procedure, small holes are made in your scalp and hair follicles are grafted into those holes. In the end, the surgical areas are again covered with gauze and bandages.
Both FUE and FUT might take from few hours to few days for the procedure to complete.
Patients are often discharged the same day procedure is done, but are advised to take some precautions and medication. Hair transplant clinics in Ahmedabad prescribe antibiotics to prevent infections and pain-killers to curb pain.
