Following are the common questions about Hair Transplantation:
A. Hair transplantation is a surgical treatment of removing hair follicles from one part of the head and planting it on another. The area where the follicles are removed is known as the 'donor site' and where the implantation is done is known as the 'recipient site.' Hair transplantation is a modern and advanced way of hair care and is basically done to treat male patterns of baldness. Hair transplant treatment is carried at dedicated hair care centers under the supervision of an experienced plastic surgeon.
A. As stated by Healthline, about 60 percent of men and 50 percent of women experience severe hair loss at some point in their lives. However, in people who undergo hair transplantation, 10 to 80 percent of the transplanted hair will fully grow back in an estimated 3 to 4 months.
Hair transplantation is an effective way to restore hair fall, but the treatment does not work for everyone. Hair transplant is beneficial if you are balding or thinning or if you have lost too much hair due to an injury. Hair transplant can also bring effective results in people who have lost hair due to chemotherapy treatment or other medications.
A. Clinical studies show that about 85-95 percent of all implanted grafts quickly grow in the transplanted area. This high percentage indicates that hair transplants are generally very successful.
The success rate of hair transplantation at Pristyn Care ranges from 90 percent and goes above. Most patients who have undergone the treatment have seen successful results from their hair transplant treatment.
A. Unlike traditional days, hair transplantation treatments give very natural-looking results. The surgery results will not disappoint you if you are in the right hands. However, if you undergo hair transplantation from a talented and qualified plastic surgeon, your scalp will not look and feel like a doll's head.
A. Hair transplantation is entirely safe and natural. Medical professionals consider hair transplantation the most effective treatment for hair loss and regrowth. Since the therapy involves no medicines and chemicals that might damage your hair, the treatment is considered entirely safe.
A. The cost of hair transplant treatment can range anywhere from INR 30,000 to INR 1,20,000. However, the cost can vary depending upon the procedure type, the number of sessions required, the number of grafts used, the patient's overall health, the plastic surgeon's experience, and the extent of baldness that needs to be treated.
FUT hair transplant costs around Rs. 25,000- Rs. 50,000, FUE hair transplant cost around Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 80,000, and PRP therapy cost around Rs. 12,000 to Rs. 1,20,000.
A. There are two types of hair transplant methods:
A. Yes, hair transplantation results are permanent if done on a healthy scalp and under the supervision of a trained doctor who can rule out the potential risks and complications. However, the results might not be permanent if the patient suffers from other medical disorders that can cause hair loss. Ideally, the results of a hair transplant are visibly permanent or quite long-lasting.
A. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you take care after hair transplantation:
Other tips for post-hair transplantation care:
A. What might be better for one individual might not be practical for someone else. In any case, the best person who can help you understand and evaluate whether FUT or FUE will be better for you is your plastic surgeon. Here are a few points that may help you make a decision before visiting your doctor:
A. Hair transplantation is effective and safe, but not for all. Not everyone is a good candidate for hair transplant surgeries. To be a good candidate for hair transplantation, the person needs to have very realistic expectations.
Ideally, the following are considered good candidates for hair transplant treatment:
A. People with advancing age are not ideal candidates for hair transplantation.
People who do not have hair from birth cannot achieve adequate results from hair transplant treatment because they will not have hair follicles that are required for the treatment.
Those under 24 years of age cannot undergo hair transplant treatment. However, most experts consider 24 years as the recommended and ideal age for hair transplantation.
Those who react to anesthesia should not opt for hair transplantation.
Individuals who have blood-borne disease/ illness such as Hepatitis C or HIV are not considered as promising candidates for hair transplants.
A. Yes, wearing a hat is considered safe. But not immediately. You should wait for at least 10-14 days or until your grafts are permanently anchored before your start wearing a hat. Wearing a hat immediately after hair transplantation can get your hair damaged, compressed and displaced.
A. Yes. Women can very well opt for a hair transplant, but the hair & scalp condition needs to warrant it. Hair transplantation is not a treatment that is effective just for men. The number of women who get their hair transplanted is less than men, but the outcome and the effectiveness mostly remain the same for both genders.
