Millions of people around the world are concerned about hair loss, particularly men. Hair loss can be caused by many factors, including hormonal changes, aging, family history and traumas such as burns. The most common rule is that hair loss becomes more severe the sooner it starts. As a reconstructive option for baldness, hair replacement surgery or transplantation might be an option.Transplantation is the process of taking a portion of your scalp that is bald-resistant and moving them to a new area. The areas that are bald-resistant are located at the sides and back of your head. Because they have been proven to be resistant to becoming bald, transplanted areas can grow hair all through your life. A few hairs per session would make the transplant look natural. Because human hair can only grow in one to four hair strands per follicle, this is why it looks natural.

There are three types of hair transplantation methods.

1. Follicular Unit Strip Surgery

This procedure involves taking a small strip of hair from the donor area and placing it on the thinning, or balding areas. The donor area is then closed with sutures. It would take several days for the area to heal. This is a great option for patients suffering from moderate to severe balding. It allows multiple grafts can be transferred in one session.

2. Follicular Unit Extraction

This method is much more popular and recent than the original. This is because the hair is transplanted from the sides and back of the head in groups of up to four. Because this is how natural hair grows, The procedure looks more natural because it replicates human hair growth. This procedure is also more natural than the others because it doesn’t require deep or major cuttings. This means that the recovery time is quicker and there are fewer scarring.

3. Scalp Reduction

This type of hair transplantation happens very rarely. In order to replace the lost hair, the bald area is removed surgically. The hair-bearing head is then stretched. This is a very expensive procedure. This could increase the chance of tightening the scalp, which will only cause its thinning.

You should understand that hair transplantation will not restore the coverage you had before your hair loss. This surgical procedure can make your hair fuller and cover any thinning areas. Hair transplantation, like all forms of surgery, comes with its own risks and complications. Like other transplant procedures, it is possible for the skin graft to “die”, requiring another procedure. Small bumps can form on the scalp. A qualified doctor can perform hair transplantation. Each case is different and each person’s reaction to transplantation will be different. Before you decide to undergo the transplant, make sure you fully understand it.
