Hair Transplants and Care for Hair

Long, lustrous hair can enhance a woman’s confidence. On the other hand, dense and beautiful hair can also boost self-esteem in males. If you are suffering from excessive hair fall issues, take your first step towards a solution. On that note, hair transplantation comes as a saviour solution.

When the discussion is about hair restoration treatments, post-operative care is as critical as your preparation and surgery. So, after consulting a reliable surgeon for hair restoration therapy, take advice for hair care. This post gives a detailed analysis of hair transplants, types, benefits, and surgical process.

What Is A Hair Transplant?

Hair transplantation is a process where the surgeon moves hair from a dense area to a bald area. A surgeon determines your candidacy by evaluating a few parameters. 

To understand the eligibility criteria, let’s first evaluate the reasons for balding. Excessive hair fall leads to hair loss in some parts of the head. That occurs due to various reasons like lifestyle (diet and lack of exercise), genetics, stress, ailments, hormonal imbalance, etc.

Once you consult a doctor, the trustworthy professional decides by determining your eligibility. The expert evaluates your medical history and recent health condition. In addition, the surgeon also conducts specialised planning for patients with previous records of burns or trauma that result in hair loss.

Hair transplants address hair loss permanently. Patients with the following conditions can consult a doctor for this hair restoration method:

  • Alopecia areata (the autoimmune disease attacking hair follicles)
  • Hormonal imbalance or thyroid diseases 
  • Androgenic alopecia (pattern baldness)
  • Traumatic burns or other injuries 

The quintessential way through which patients achieve their desired results is grafting. Other methods include scalp reduction, flap surgery, and tissue expansion.

Types of Hair Transplants

Hair transplantation comprises two significant types: FUT and FUE. Given below are the procedures in detail:


FUT, or follicular unit transplantation, is the invasive surgical method that treats extreme hair loss cases. A patient who wants to cover the receding hairline due to pattern baldness can consider this method. In FUT, the surgeon cuts a skin strip from the head’s backside and then transplants these follicles individually into the new area. 

In addition, it is also suitable for patients with alopecia areata. The initial step in the hair transplant procedure is to prepare the donor area after cleaning and trimming. The surgeon prepares the patient’s recipient area for grafting. The professional places the grafts to accomplish the desired hairline. 


Next comes the FUE or follicular unit extraction process, the revolution restoration method. Unlike conventional practices, this method doesn’t need the removal of a scalp or strip. It has minimal scarring, and a patient can resume daily chores faster after the hair growth surgery. It’s a state-of-the-art, minimally invasive surgical process. It involves the extraction of individual follicles from one area and implanting into the other.

Benefits of hair transplants

From improving your appearance to boosting self-confidence, hair transplants have numerous benefits. Itrestores your hair, thereby enhancing your attractiveness. Besides rebuilding your confidence, it helps you feel confident about yourself.

Another reason why patients consider this method is because it offers a permanent solution, compared to wigs. It eliminates the bald spots and makes you more confident. Besides the after-care routine, patients don’t have to worry about maintenance. 

The success rate of this hair restoration method is high when compared to other therapies. Since the doctor assesses your medical condition, there will be lower chances of future complications. Patients need to take painkillers and antibiotics only during the post-operative session. After healing, you don’t have to consume any medicines to keep up with the hair condition.

Surgeons use anaesthesia during the surgery, so it’s not painful. In addition, patients can rest assured of a low risk of side effects. Finally, it offers natural-looking results and is the best alternative to other treatments like weaving or wigs.

What Happens During A Hair Transplant Procedure?

FUT and FUE are the two procedures in hair transplants. FUT is the strip procedure where the skin strip from the head’s backside is cut. The surgeon separately transplants these follicles into the new area. The region from where the skin strip is cut is closed with fine sutures in order to offer minimal scarring.

Follicular Unit Extraction has become popular these days. Here, the doctor punches out each graft individually and transplants them to the new area. After the procedure, the patient can go home safely without any issues.

However, it is advisable not to drive back alone or perform strenuous activities right after the hair loss treatment. A patient should always consult the doctor before performing any activities after the operation.

One may expect to see visible results within 4 to 6 months. At times, it may take 12 months for the transplant to show the results. Some patients need to opt for a second visit owing to the amount of hair loss. It is advisable to follow adjunctive therapies after the first session for improved outcomes.
