Hair loss is a prevalent issue that has affected almost every single person irrespective of their age and gender, which can ultimately lead to hair thinning or balding condition. If you have a desire to get rid of this condition, then seeking the right hair transplant approach can add fullness to your hair.
Hair transplant is one of the most influential and popular surgical procedure that can help to restore hair and delivers the most natural outcome. Before commencing this surgical procedure, the surgeon first administers some amount of local anaesthesia to ensure that the patients do not feel any significant pain or discomfort and then starts extricating hair follicles are from the back and sides of the scalp. These extracted hair follicles are finally very carefully implanted to the balding or recipient area of the scalp. Even though most of the people consider hair transplant as the most effective treatment for baldness, but least did people knew this procedure could also be used to increase the fullness of their hair.
Increase the hair density through hair transplant- is it feasible?
The most advanced hair transplant procedure involves implanting the grafts closer to each other than it could have been possible earlier. To achieve an increased hair density, most of the surgeon grafts hair follicles within varied density depending on the patient’s requirement, that extends within 20 to 60 follicular units per centimeter square. When the hair follicles are transplanted closer to each other, it delivers a fuller hair appearance due to the significant increase in hair volume.
However, in some cases, closely implanted hair follicles can impact the growth rate of the transplanted hair. So, the most suitable density of hair grafts can only be assessed by an experienced surgeon without affecting the growth of the transplanted hair follicles.
How is hair density increased with a hair transplant?
The hair transplant procedure for increasing the density of hair is similar to that used for covering up baldness, and the process entails extracting individual hair follicles from the donor area of the scalp. Since this process requires fewer number of hair follicles, so the entire extraction process is performed manually in an FUE technique by making several tiny incisions. Typically when FUE is performed, the surgeon shaves the donor area to extract the hair follicles. But, in this case, the surgeon does not shave the site of extraction or implantation to give a much more natural look to it. As a result, it becomes difficult for people to identify whether they have had a hair transplant or it’s their natural hair density. However, it is essential to experience such surgical procedure under the guidance of an experienced hair surgeon like Dr Sunil Arora of our ALCS Clinic because he knows, each case is different. So to achieve the best result, he develops a customised treatment plan based on individual requirement.
How effective is the outcome?
Before even deciding to undergo a hair transplant procedure, it is imperative to maintain a realistic expectation from the process as this does not produce an instant result. But once the hair starts to grow, it develops just like permanent existing normal hair. However, during the recovery period, most of the patients will experience some transplanted hair to shed, which might seem disappointing, but this will be followed by the growth of the newly transplanted hair follicles.
