Restoration of your hair, in the surgical process is termed as hair transplant. The process was first introduced during the 1930s. Expertise for this kind of a service came with the Japanese surgeons. Hair transplantation, although a surgical process, is good enough to re-grow the hair which is lost. Basically, the process entails, restoration of hair from one area of the scalp to the other. The process is exactly like growing seeds in a field of paddy.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE), is also known as follicular transfer (FT). As a matter of fact, FUE undertakes extraction of follicles from one part of the scalp to the other. This is considered to be a primary method of using healthy follicular units from one portion of the scalp to the other. FUE considers extraction of healthy hair follicles from one part of the scalp to the other. Survival of the follicular units in the long run, are however, dependent on several factors. According to experts, the method in which the follicular units are transplanted, actually is the determining factor whether the units will survive in the long run. If follicular units are transacted in the extraction process, there is a greater likelihood that they will not survive the transplant, and the hair transplant will fail. A major advantage of FUE is that, it calls for stichless, scarless, cutless technique which is associated with a speedy recovery. In this technique the Follicular units are extracted with help of 0.8 mm – 1 mm diameter punches. Hair follicles are usually extracted from the donor area (that is back and side of your head). The individual follicular units are transplanted into bald area after extraction. In order to get good volume of hair, we need to actually work on more number of grafts.
Follicles are extracted from permanent zone of the scalp, where hair growth is the maximum. This include the back and side of the scalp, Extraction of hair follicles from a permanent zone ensures that, transplanted hair don't fall in future.
Implantation of Follicles are done in the bald area, once extraction is over. Implantation is facilitated through instrumentation and proper techniques. The individual follicular units are transplanted into bald area after extraction.
Another alternative method for hair transplantation is strip harvesting. Strip harvesting is largely different from FUE, as it involves skin grafting. In strip harvesting, a strip of skin is removed from the patient and then dissected into many individual follicular units. The follicular units obtained by either method are the basic building blocks of follicular unit transplantation. FUT procedures, involve extraction of hair follicles, using strip-harvesting of follicular units typically guarantees a large number of non-transected follicular units. Experts mutually agree that, transecting grafts can actually, be harmful in the long run, as hair follicles fail to grow when transacted. The skill of the surgeon and his/her team, is however, an additionally important factor, which can affect the follicular growth. Majorly the type of instrumentation used, also creates an impact to a large extent. Graft survival is also affected by factors such as excessive scalp exposure to air.
Body hair transplant (BHT) is the procedure in which body hairs are used for transplantation. When baldness appears due to excessive hair loss body hairs are required to fill in thinning area of scalp. Commonly hairs can be taken from beard, chest, legs, public areas, under arms and back.
