Human’s hair generally starts falling around the age of 40. In some people it may start still earlier. Hair transplantation is a permanent and successful solution for people suffering from baldness. In hair transplantation procedures follicular units of hair are extracted from the donor area where there is sufficient quantity of hair and these grafts are then transplanted in the holes already created in the recipient area for this purpose using specialized equipment. The transplantation of follicular units of hair is carried out in two methods known as FUE and FUT.
The latest entry in the field of hair transplant is known as NeoGraft which was introduced five years ago. In this method the surgeon makes use of a special machine for extracting follicular units of hair. This machine also helps the surgeon to place the grafts in the exact location very easily and without any wastage of time. With the introduction of this technology it has become possible for transplanting more number of grafts in one session.
Falling and consequent re-growth
The transplanted hair starts falling after about one week and it continues for three months. After about three months new hair starts growing in the pores and these hair becomes permanent hair which can undergo various hair styles, air treatments and this hair can be cut also. The re-growing of hair will be completed within one year from the date of transplant.
Types of hair losses
There are many types of male pattern hair losses and they are classified on the Norwood scale which was introduced in the year 1950 and later modified in the year 1970.
Androgenic Alopecia: This is a common form of male pattern baldness characterized by receding hair line. It can start in the teenage itself. There are number of methods for treating Androgenic Alopecia. NeoGraft hair transplants are a completely safe and guaranteed solution for this type of hair loss.
Cicatricial Alopecia: This type of hair loss occurs as a result of radiation poisoning, rashes, harsh burns etc. This type of hair loss requires painstaking treatment. Transplantation procedures and wigs are also solutions to this type of problems.
If the problem of hair loss is very severe and if the patient does not have suitable donor areas, the transplantation will become a problem. But if the patient is adamant and wants to get hair transplanted without sparing any difficulties then the doctor will be compelled to explore other options like donor hair form other parts of body and from other persons etc.
