Signs That Indicate You Require Hair Transplant

Smooth, silky, manageable hair is a dream for every person who wants to look good. Hair defines your facial structure. It enhances beauty, improves appearance, and boosts confidence in a person. Thinning of hair or partial baldness is a major concern for any person. But It is possible to have natural-looking hair regrowth thanks to remarkable advancements in dermatology and medical science. Hair transplant is a surgical technique in which hair follicles are removed from one part of the body and placed onto the balding site.

Painless Hair Transplantation in Kolkata is used to treat balding patterns in both males and females. Major improvements in creating a natural hairline and placing the hair follicle in the thinning areas give natural-looking results. The transplantation is long-lasting and is considered to be permanent. The procedure is time-consuming though.

A person can undergo a hair transplant if they have the following conditions:

  • Balding patterns
  • Thinning of hair.
  • Balding due to any skin problems in the crown area.
  • Alopecia areata (an autoimmune disease that attacks hair follicles)
  • Thyroid diseases or hormonal imbalances.
  • Loss of hair due to an accident or trauma or burns.
  • A hair transplant can also be used to restore the lashes around the eyebrows, beard, and chest.
  • Sometimes it is also used to cover up an area where a scar is present due to traumatic injuries.
  • Anyone with poor scalp condition, weak donor area, and burn or scalp injury.
  • Pattern baldness is responsible for the majority of hair loss. This comes down to genetics.
  • Other factors such as diet, stress, hormonal imbalance, and medications add to the concern.

When do you expect to see the results from a hair transplant?

Painless Hair transplantation in Kolkata is safe; there are no side effects. The procedure is not painful as Dr Paul specializes in painless therapies. New hair starts growing permanently, mostly between six and nine months after the surgery.  After the surgery is completed, you should know that the transplanted hair will fall out between two and eight weeks. The results are permanent. No worries; it can be treated just like normal hair. The genetically implanted hair can be washed, cut, oiled, and styled according to your preferences.

How does a hair transplant work?

The surgeon takes grafts from areas of the body that contain healthy hair. They are called the donor site. The donor site is usually at the back of your scalp, where hair tends to be thickest. The surgeon then moves the grafts to the hairless parts of the scalp. After the transplantation, the skin heals, and new hair grows.

Types of hair transplant surgery

  • Grafting

It is the most common type of hair transplant surgery. A surgeon cuts tiny pieces of the scalp containing healthy hair, about 10 to 15 hairs. They administer medication to numb the scalp. You may need several procedures depending on how much hair needs to move. Your scalp will need to heal for a few months between procedures.

  • Scalp Reduction

During the procedure, a surgeon removes a small area of bald skin from the scalp. They loosen the nearby skin, which contains hair and pull it over the bald area. Scalp reduction is ideal for bald areas on the top and back of the head. Like grafting, scalp reduction requires only numbing the scalp.

  • Flap Surgery

This surgery takes several phases over a few weeks. The surgeon makes superficial cuts around three sides of the donor site. The fourth side remains attached, maintaining its original blood supply. This technique helps the surgeon cut the flap and lift it over bald areas. This surgery needs general anesthesia.

  • Tissue Expansion

A dermatologist suggests tissue expansion surgery if you have scalp baldness or disfigurement due to burns. It requires anesthesia and involves several steps. A reconstructive surgeon inserts an implant under the scalp, where still hair is left. It is shaped like a balloon, and they call it a tissue expander. For weeks, the expander is gradually inflated to stretch the skin.

The surgeon performs a second procedure to cover the bald area with the stretched skin.

Probable risk factors of transplantation

  • Allergic reaction to anesthesia.
  • Excessive blood loss.
  • Failed grafts or flaps.
  • Infection.
  • Loss of feeling on your scalp.
  • Scarring.

Side effects of hair transplant surgery

Side effects are usually temporary. Some may experience the following issues on your scalp, at the donor site, or where the new hair is growing.

  • Crust or scabs.
  • Itching.
  • Loss of feeling.
  • Pain or throbbing.
  • Swelling.
  • Tightness.

These are less common and temporary and generally recover on their own.
