Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure used for the correction of Alopecia or any form of permanent hair loss from the scalp, beard or eyebrow. The number of people considering hair transplantation to using wigs is on the rise. This is because unlike hair replacement, hair transplantation surgery is a permanent solution that requires no on-going maintenance. In addition to hair transplant, eyebrow transplant and beard transplant are also possible.
Hair transplantation surgery takes only three days to complete. After the initial evaluation, the physician determines the actual cause of hair loss. There are many reasons stimulating loss of hair. Surgeons adopt surgery only when no medical condition is responsible for hair loss. It works well for both men and women as long as their donor area is able to yield sufficient number of hair follicles. The “donor area” is the area from which the grafts are taken. The type of graft depends on the hair type, colour, quality and size of the recipient area. After the grafts are prepared, the surgeon delicately places each graft in the area.
The cost of a hair transplantation surgery depends on the extent of surgery. The larger the amount of hair to be replaced, the higher is the cost. As with any surgical procedure, hair transplantation carries risks, including infection and bleeding. This can be relieved with medicines. However, if you are bothered due to sudden loss of hair or thinning hair, hair transplantation can significantly improve your appearance and self-confidence.
