Surgery to Grow Hair
Male pattern baldness doesn’t affect the head’s hair on the sides or back. Surgery of Hair transplant in Lahore involves extracting hair follicles from the back and sides of the scalp and relocating them to the top of the scalp, where hair loss has occurred. Replanted hair will develop in the same manner as hair in the donor location.
Dr. Atta Ul Haq will go through a few key points before a hair transplant, including:
- Do you feel good all around?
- Do you have any problems with how you bleed or healed?
- Your age and how much hair loss you have.
- Have you tried medical therapy or other non-surgical options?
- How much and how good is your donor’s hair is.
- What’s your top beauty goal?
The hairline is the first thing done when getting a hair transplant. The surgeon will sketch where they think the hairline should go. You are welcome to take part in making this decision.
The donor area is then set up. A strip of hair removes from the back of the head in the FUT strip harvesting technique.
The scalp is then numbed on both the top and the back. Patients can choose to sleep while local anesthesia is being given. Most of the time, this is the only pain you will feel during the procedure, and it only lasts a minute or two.
With FUT, The stitches hide by your hair and taken out in one to ten days, leaving a small scar in your hair.
Under a microscope, Follicular Units, usual groups of one to three hairs, separates from the donor strip to save every follicle.
Next, the surgeon makes the places where the grafts will go. For 1 to 3 hair grafts, minor cuts create at the hairline. As the surgeon returns, he will place grafts with Follicular Unit Groups that get bigger. This lets your surgeon add more density without changing the way it looks. You will be awake the whole time, watching TV and talking to the doctor and staff. Usually, the procedure takes between 3 and 6 hours, and you can eat and drink during that time.
When your hair transplant completed, you will get instructions, medicine, and shampoo to use after the surgery. You’ll leave the office with little or no bandage, and the next day you’ll be able to wash your hair.
Tiny crusts will form where the transplants happen and usually fall off in 4–7 days. After 8 to 12 weeks, permanent hair growth starts. You should notice a change in how your hair looks after 6 months, and you should have full hair growth after 9 to 12 months.
FUT or Strip Harvest Hair Transplant
Follicular units are groups of terminal hairs, usually one to four. So, the follicular unit is both a natural part of the body’s physiology and a part of its anatomy.
With follicular unit transplantation, the surgeon can move as many hairs as possible while leaving as little non-hair-bearing skin as possible.
This keeps the wounds on the recipients small and makes it easier for them to heal. With the proper technique, a lot of grafts can move safely in one session. Using these units helps ensure that the transplant will look natural from a cosmetic point of view.
Micrografts and mini-grafts, in contrast to follicular units, are small grafts cut randomly from the donor’s hair. Due to the increased surface area of these multiple units, the recipient sites increases in size.
In theory, it’s hard to argue that the follicular unit technique isn’t better. However, in practice, follicular unit transplantation is time-consuming, hard on the doctor and staff, and needs a high level of skill to take right. Dr. Atta Ul Haq has extensive experience in both the surgical and technical aspects of this procedure, thanks to his fellowship training in it.
Microscopic dissection and follicular unit transplantation have changed over time, so this method can now apply on other body parts, like the eyebrows and eyelashes. It has also become a much better option for women who lose hair in a more diffuse pattern.
