Basics of Hair Transplantation process:

Hair transplantation requires moving hair grafts from the donor area of the scalp to the recipient area. Transplants happen to be an old process, and have been happening since long. Only thing is that technologies have been changed since past and modern technologies made to be available. However experts suggest that, before transplantation, taking expert consultation remains to be a mandate.

 

Hair transplantation starts by the process of cleaning the scalp. The scalp is then injected with medicines, which is applied at the back of the head. Either of the two methods can be applied, which includes Follicular Unit Strip surgery (FUSS) or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUSS, implies that, 6 to 10-inch skin strip is removed from the back of the head by the surgeon. The removed strip of a strip of skin is then set aside. Next the scalp is sewn to close it. The sewn area is then instantly concealed by hair. After this, the strip is divided into 500 to 2000 small grafts. The grafts contain a few hairs. Such hairs are then used for transplantation. However, the quality of transplantation depends on the type, color and quality of hair and the size of the area required for transplantation. In case of FUE hair is transplanted from the back of the scalp. Hair follicles are removed from the back of the scalp which is again covered with existing hairs.

Apparently, two procedures are more or less the same. As the grafts get prepared, the recipient area is cleaned and numbed.  This is followed by using a needle or scalpel, with the help of which slits or holes are created.  Individual grafts are then placed into each of the holes. The process can be executed between 4 to 8 hours depending on the desired results.

Expectations

After the transplantation procedure, the scalp remains to be tender. Most of the patients have felt a persistent pain for a few days after transplantation. For pain relief, anti biotics are suggested. Usually most of the patients go back to a normal life after the surgery takes place. However, immediately following the surgical procedure, hair fall can be experienced. This will be experienced for the first 3 weeks. However, re-growth of hair occurs between 6 – 9 months as such.

Costs and risks of treatment

The cost of hair transplant varies as per the amount of hair to be transplanted. Generally, it ranges between Rs Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 100000. The per graft cost which most of the clinics in Delhi offer is somewhere around Rs. 25/- to Rs. 35/- However, an individual investigation needs to be done once you zero-in on the surgery process.  Patients are asked to take a detailed screening of the risks involved.  Therefore, consulting a qualified surgeon is a mandate before you are planning to go for the process.
