Sort your finances out for hair treatment
Hair transplant surgery is a surgical technique in which skin with hair from one part of the body is moved to a bald or balding area. This surgery is used mainly for men that are bald or balding. Where graphs of skin with hair follicles that normally wouldnt bald are places into the scalp.
Hair can be harvested in one of two ways:
Follicular Unit Extraction this involves individual hair follicle removal under a local anesthetic. A tiny hollow tube, or punch is used to remove the follicle, which is then transplanted into the balding scalp. Since there are no large cuts there is no need for stitches with this procedure. There may be some tenderness where the folliciles were removed and also where they were placed, but nothing majorly painful.
Strip Harvesting which is where a strip of is removed under a local anesthetic. The skin is then sewed together where the strip was removed. This will leave a scar but hair should cover it after it has healed. That piece of scalp tissue is the cut into grafts, which are then transplanted back into the balding area of the scalp.
This surgery is normally done on an outpatient bases, and tend to be rather expensive. This also depends on how many grafts you have done, as this normally ost so much per graft. Most of the time more than one visit is necessary depending on how much area is to be covered and how much is done at each visit.
During the first 10 days all of the transplanted hair will fall out. Which is called shock loss. After two or three months the hair will begin to grow and thicken in the balding area. You will be advised to wash your hair within a day or two of your procedure, as you do not want the area to scab as this can cause the follicles to come out of place with the scab. Sometimes the specialist will use a clear bandage to help keep the area from scabbing over following your hair loss treatment.
