What is Hair Transplantation?

Hair transplant is a procedure where the hair are harvested from one area of the body and implanted to bald areas. These areas are known as a donor and a receptor area respectively. The hair transplant surgery was initially used as corrective surgery for male pattern baldness. With the advancement in hair transplant techniques, it’s being done now to correct or restore women hair loss, beard, mustache, eyelashes, eyebrows, chest hair, pubic hair and to fix accidentals or surgical scars.

Factors for Hair loss in Mumbai

  • Hard water: As in deserted areas mineral content of water is pretty high and if such water is used for a longer time to wash your hair, you might experience male or female hair loss pattern, though no surety has been established. While consulting people for their hair loss problems, many patients who have relocated to Mumbai or even relocated to a different locality in Mumbai have experienced hair loss.
  • Climate: Humidity is not good for hair, and we all know how humid the climate of Mumbai is. So with hard water, including humid climate condition can even worsen hair fall problems.

Hair transplant techniques

At Harleys Clinic, Dr. Sumit Agrawal offers advance hair restoration techniques that you can opt from:

understand the Difference between FUT and FUE hair transplant

This is the traditional hair harvesting technique used. In Follicular unit transplantation technique strips of skin having healthy hair follicles are been harvested from the donor area and then the hair follicular are removed from this strips and are prepared in a way so they can be transplanted to the receptor area in an angle that the outcome hairline could be as realistic as it could be.

Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or Strip harvesting:

This is the traditional hair harvesting technique used. In Follicular unit transplantation technique strips of skin having healthy hair follicles are been harvested from the donor area and then the hair follicular are removed from this strips and are prepared in a way so they can be transplanted to the receptor area in an angle that the outcome hairline could be as realistic as it could be.

FUT (Follicular unit transplantation) or Strip harvesting advantages and disadvantages

The only advantage of using the Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or Strip harvesting techniques is that you don’t have to shave your head and a large number of grafts can be harvested in a single session.

The disadvantage with Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or Strip harvesting techniques is that it’s not for the one who loves short hairstyles as linear scars may be visible on the scalp from where the skin has been harvested for the transplant. Additionally, patient opting for FUT hair transplant technique might experience more discomfort and may require additional pain management medication as FUT is a more invasive hair transplant procedure.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE)

Harvesting): In FUE harvesting individual hair follicles are harvested manually from the patient scalp under the influence of local anesthesia. The harvested follicles are then grafted by the surgeon to bald or thinning areas around the head in a way to achieve the most realistic results.

FUE Hair Transplant Technique Advantages

  • Less post-operative pain as the FUE procedure is less invasive.
  • Healing time for the FUE procedure is far less than FUT and FUE requires less incision.
  • As individual follicles are extracted so no visible linear scar.
  • Good for people who want to opt for short hairstyle after the procedure.
  • Can restore normal activities soon after surgery.
  • Hair from other parts of the body other than scalp can also be transplanted with FUE hair transplant technique.

FUE Hair Transplant Technique Disadvantages

  • In FUE, the no. of grafts that can be harvested in a single session is limited. If more grafts are needed, it can be harvested by BHT from beard.
  • FUE transplant techniques require more time than the FUT procedure as hair follicles are harvested one by one.
  • FUE harvesting can sometimes leave multiple pinpoints (white) dots in donor's scalp.
  • FUE harvesting technique is more expensive than FUT harvesting technique.

Robotic hair restoration(ARTAS)

With the advancement in FUE hair transplant technique, robotic hair restoration devices utilize cameras and robotic arms to assist the surgeon with the procedure.

Do and Don't Before Hair Transplant

Before your hair transplant procedure, here are some dos and don'ts:

  • Wash your hair morning and night before surgery day. Use a surgeon’s recommended shampoo.
  • Wear front-opening shirts on surgery day to make it easier to remove garments.
  • Driving after surgery is not recommended, so ask someone to assist you in travelling. 
  • Individuals with BP, type 1 or type 2 diabetes, or any illness need to maintain their health before the surgery.
  • Avoid blood thinners and anti-inflammatories (aspirin, ibuprofen, and fish oil) before three days from the surgery.
  • Stop taking multivitamins, Vitamin B, and vitamin supplements from 7 days before surgery. 
  • Alcohol consumption and smoking should be stopped 7 days before hair transplant surgery.
  • Avoid overexposure to the sun in hot, humid weather.
  • Before surgery, consult your surgeon before taking any prescription medication.
  • Stop shaving 15 days before your hair transplant surgery.
  • Eat a light breakfast on surgery day, as pre-surgery medication is oral.
