Hair restoration surgery is an answer to a lot of people today, facing the problems of hair loss, especially men; women though are not far behind too. Their ages can vary from twenties to forties or so on. A lot of factors can play a role for this hair loss, for example genetics, aging, a common condition named Alopecia areata, etc. People then look for ways for restoration of their hair. Thanks to the now evolving world of science and technology, they are not disappointed in their search. There are many methods of hair transplant techniques now known to us. The surgical ways include Scalp Micropigmentation, PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy), Robotic hair restoration, NeoGraft and two major types of transplants, FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).
The best hair restoration surgery now known to us is FUT and FUE. FUT transplant costs from $1000 to $12,00 and FUE from $1000 to $1500 in Lahore Pakistan. The per session rate may vary from clinic to clinic. FUT is said to be the most effective way for follicle restoration. This helps to recover the loss of follicles from the bald spots on the head.
Hair restoration surgery type: FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) is a transplant in which a surgeon cuts a strip of skin from the back or the side of our head to extract individual follicles. This strip that is cut from the head is usually 1 to 1.5 centimeters (0.4 to 0.6 inches) wide. The surgeon draws our follicle line again and marks the area of extraction. Then he takes photographs for our medical record for this whole process. We have the option to take sedative before surgery; nevertheless, local anesthesia is applied to our scalp to numb it. The strands from the area where our follicles are required are trimmed to about two millimeters. This cut out strip of skin with follicles will be used as a graft. A technician then removes these follicles from the strip and prepares them for transplant. The strip from where the follicles are extracted is re-inserted into our scalp. The scalp is closed with sutures. These follicles are inserted at the balding spots of our scalp in a way it looks completely natural. An antibiotic is applied to the scalp then the bandages. This whole surgery takes 4 to 8 hours. Mostly, people start seeing the results from this transplant in 6 to 9 months and some may also have to wait for a year. This FUT transplant works best at covering a receding hairline in men.
Hair restoration surgery is demanded mostly by the men with the condition called Androgenic alopecia (commonly known as male pattern baldness). This condition often appears in Norwood pattern or an M-shaped line with the loss of follicles occurring at the temples. Women with this condition experience the Ludwig pattern, this causes follicle loss at the follicle part or thinning at the top of the head. If the medical conditions such as Alopecia areata or Thyroid disorder are the cause of your follicle loss, then FUT surgery most likely won’t be an option. FUT transplant is a better option when a large number of follicles is required. It has a shorter operation time and is cheaper. FUT leaves a scar at the operation site too, which fades with time but is permanent. It can be hidden if you grow your strands accordingly. Complications after FUT surgery are very rare. A large supply of blood towards our head helps the healing process and prevents it from any infection. Less than one percent of people may develop any infection, which may include swelling, numbness, pain, inflammation of follicles, unnatural looking strands, cysts, bumps or scarring etc. A common falling out of transplanted follicles occurs within one month of surgery, this is called shock hair loss, but the follicles almost always grow back within four months.
