Losing hair is not easy for anyone. It can cause you to suffer many social and emotional issues. It is true that we all lose some hair every day and 60-100 strands in a day are considered to be normal. However, when these number of strands increases above this limit then there may be something serious and this may be the sign of the start of hair loss.
Before any other step for hair transplant it is evaluated that whether a person is suited for a transplant or not. It is evaluated on the basis of the grade of baldness, the extent and quality of the donor area, the thickness and density of the hair in the recipient area and the results of the hair analysis test. These all factors also decide which type of hair transplantation procedure is most suited for the candidate.
The Direct Hair transplant is the latest technique. This technique is painless as it does not involve the use of scalpels. It provides you healthy and natural looking hair. After the completion of this procedure the new hair continues to grow naturally throughout the life. The main objective of this procedure is to elevate the survival and growth of the hair follicles by reducing their handling and the time for which they stay out of the skin.
In direct hair transplant method the hair follicles are implanted one by one directly to the recipient area that needs to be covered. Each hair follicle is placed in a particular direction, depth and angle that help to get 100% natural results with maximum density. The hair growth can be seen within 2 months and full growth can happen in 8-9 months.
FUE is a hair transplantation technique that involves taking the individual follicular grafts from the back of the head and cutting them one by one.
In this procedure each graft is harvested each at a time with small 0.8 and 0.9 mm punches so that they heal as basically untraceable dots in the scalp. There are no cuts involved this surgery and thus sutures are not required. Thus this also means that there are no scars left on the scalp. However, it is slightly time consuming method but it is painless. This surgical procedure is most suited for the people who have lesser area of baldness and lesser number of grafts is needed.
