How do I know I need a hair transplant?

Hair is the glory of any person’s appearance. They enhance the look of the person by many folds. Despite dressing upright, if your hair isn’t looking right then you don’t feel good. This is because hair imparts a feel-good look to your personality. 

However, many people suffer a great amount of hair loss and they can even witness their hair here and there and almost everywhere. They try almost everything and anything that can be used for reducing their hair loss. Be it oils or other cosmetic products, people with thinning hair try everything. Some get relief while some don’t as hair loss is also due to the genes. The male pattern baldness is clearly due to the genetic disorder. 

This hair thinning makes a person feel very awkward and they start looking out for alternative remedies. One such remedy is hair transplant surgery. A hair transplant surgeon in Delhi is performed on people with thinning hair or baldness. A hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which a plastic surgeon implants hair from the donor site to the balding area of the head. The donor area is preferred from the back or side of the head and implanted over the front or top of the head.

Usually, genes are the major causes for hair loss but there are various other causes as well-

A very poor diet

Anxiety or stress

Infection or illness due to the use of non sterilized medical equipment

Hormonal imbalance leading to low levels of testosterone

Random medications

How is a hair transplant surgery performed?

The scalp is cleaned thoroughly by the surgeon and then anesthetized using an anesthesia injection. The anesthesia is provided so that the person doesn’t feel anything during the whole procedure. Two main techniques which are used to implant follicles for hair transplantation are FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation​) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). However, there are other techniques as well such as long hair transplant, biosynthetic hair transplant, robotic hair transplant, and many more others​. 

FUT hair transplant technique

In this technique, the surgeon makes use of a scalpel (medical knife) to cut out a strip/layer of the skin from either the back of the head or any other area which is acting as a donor site. The length of the incision varies greatly. 

This area is then stitched back by the surgeon.

The surgeon then breaks down the removed portion of the scalp into very small sections known as grafts using a surgical knife. 

The next process is the same as that of an FUE hair transplant technique.

These grafts are implanted over the area of the baldness.

FUE hair transplant technique

In follicular unit extraction (FUE) the hair follicles are cut out directly from the donor area like the back of the head in the form of thousands of minute incisions.

The surgeon creates very small holes using a blade or needle in the area of the scalp where the hair transplantation is to be done.

The surgeon then implants hair follicles in these holes.

During one treatment session, a surgeon may transplant hundreds to thousands of hair on the balding site.

How do you know if you need a hair transplant?

Too much baldness obviously requires hair transplant surgery. But a small or limited amount of baldness requires an expert opinion for this. If you want to regrow hair back on your head then you should go for a hair transplant surgery and there are no such age criteria for this. Only the person should be older enough to undergo​ a surgical procedure. Secondly, getting a hair transplant surgery doesn’t make your head weak or anything, only it should be performed by a certified plastic surgeon only at a clinic/hospital and not some outsourced. Still, if you are skeptical about getting a hair transplant surgery then you must consult a well-renowned plastic surgeon prior to getting it done. This will resolve your many doubts. You can’t estimate the cost, only your grade of baldness and also the experience of the doctor will determine your cost of the surgery.
