You may wonder about the efficacy of the hair transplant surgery. Hair transplant surgery is the permanent solution of baldness because of the genetic nature of baldness.
Due to the genetic nature of baldness, most of the patients may start the hair loss at the young age. Genetic hair loss or male pattern baldness affects the hairline, temple area, and crown area and at the most severe stage, only a thin layer of the hairs is left on the back and sides of the head.
The surgeons use these hairs for the hair transplant surgery. Generally, they remove the hairs from the back and sides (called donor area) and transplants these hairs to the bald areas.
Hair transplant surgery is a stable and permanent procedure because the transplanted hairs are stable and supposed to grow on the recipient areas forever.
Mainly two methods are used for hair transplant surgery and these surgeries are known as Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
A brief introduction of both the procedure is explained below:
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT):
Follicular Unit Transplant is an older technique and preferred by the surgeons to cover a larger bald area. During the procedure of FUT or strip surgery, the surgeon removes a strip of tissues and harvest the hair grafts from the strip to transplant all the hair grafts to the bald area. FUT surgery is a reliable technique and provides optimum results.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):
During the procedure of Follicular Unit Extraction, the surgeon removes the hair follicles directly from the skin and transplants to the bald sites of the scalp. the surgeons use a tiny instrument to remove the hair that leaves very small scars that are not visible easily and fade away with time.
As you may have observed, the donor area is an important factor in the success of a hair transplant. if the donor area is strong, the surgeon may choose either of these surgeries but if the donor area is weak and the hairs are thin, the surgeon has to talk to the patients about the possible options. If the surgeon is using FUE technique, he may use the other parts of the body as donor area.
This technique is called Body Hair Transplant and it is used in the Avenues if the donor area is not strong. The parts that are used in the treatment are Chest, eyebrow, mustache, beard etc.
