The self-confidence of a person starts going down from the moment they start experiencing the receding hairline or thinning of the hair. Hair plays an extremely important role in the overall appearance of an individual. Hence, experiencing hair loss or baldness may invoke a sense of insecurities and growing old in the mind’s of an individual. These thoughts can even haunt them day and night. Therefore, to get rid of all these problems, one should choose to undergo hair transplantation also known as hair restoration. This procedure is ideal for men suffering from male pattern baldness, women suffering from receding hairline or someone suffering from hair loss due to injury or burn on the scalp.
Hair transplantation is a treatment procedure in which the dermatologist or plastic surgeon restores hair growth especially in the area where hair growth is absolutely absent. A number of hair transplant procedures are available in Delhi that can help you restore hair volume and boost up your self-confidence. However, the American Society of Plastic Surgeon states that the dead follicles on the scalp cannot be treated even with the help of hair transplantation. In such a situation, after completion of the surgery, you should go for ‘touch-up’ procedures to let the follicles grow in the area of hair loss and give a more natural appearance.
Different Methods Of Hair Transplant In Delhi
Typically, there are two methods of hair transplant available in Delhi. However, depending upon the needs of the patient and doctor’s diagnosis, the plastic surgeon recommends any one of the two methods. Below are the two types of hair transplantation.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
Follicular Unit Transplantation, also known as Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS), is another method of hair transplantation. During this procedure, the surgeon numbs the back of your head using local anaesthesia and sterilizes the donor site. After that, the surgeon removes a patch of skin from the scalp of the donor site with the help of a blade and then closes the donor site with stitches. Then, the surgeon and his/her team separate the patch of skin into tiny follicular units with the help of a microscope. The scalp may be divided into more than 2000 tiny pieces, which are medically known as grafts. Meanwhile, the surgeon also makes tiny holes in the recipient site with the help of a needle. After all this, the surgeon inserts the grafts into the holes. This procedure is called grafting. Once grating is completed, the surgeon closes the surgical site with bandages.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
During this procedure, the surgeon takes the hair follicles from the donor site by making thousands of incisions with the help of a specialized tool rather than removing a patch of skin from the scalp. This procedure offers a fuller and natural hairline. This procedure does not require stitches as there is no removal of tissues from the donor site. The rest of the procedure is the same as FUT. Usually, it takes around 6-8 hours to implant 3000 grafts.
Even though both these procedures are performed under the influence of local or general anaesthesia, you may experience pain and bleeding during these procedures. There is also a high chance that you may experience some painful symptoms and develop infections post these procedures as well. One of the main reasons for all these complications is that both FUT and FUE involve incisions. Apart from this, they also take longer to show results. The hair usually grows almost 7-8 months after completion of these procedures.
Best Method Of Hair Transplant In Delhi
Direct Hair Transplant (DHI) is a type of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). During FUE, the surgeon makes several incisions in the scalp to implant the grafts into those holes. But DHI is a modern and advanced method of hair transplant and it does not involve any cuts or incisions to implant the grafts.
During DHI, the surgeon may trim the donor site, which is at the back of the head. After that, the surgeon injects local anaesthesia to the scalp to ensure that the patient does not feel anything else other than a prick of the needle. Then, the surgeon takes out the follicles from the donor site using a pen-like instrument called Choi. Once the follicles are taken out, they are processed into grafts in a laboratory, which is then implanted in the recipient site with the help of a DHI implanter. This entire procedure does not involve any holes to implant the follicles in the recipient site. Usually, it takes around 6-8 hours to complete the entire DHI procedure. However, the procedure can be divided into short sessions, so you do not have to worry much about the time or the procedure.
DHI encourages hair growth and is a modern and advanced way of performing hair transplantation. The success rate of DHI is greater than both FUT and FUE. The recovery period is also very quick and comfortable after DHI as it does not involve incisions and stitches. The chance of developing an infection after DHI is almost zero. There is no risk of follicle damage and the results are natural and satisfying. Just after 3 months of DHI, the hair starts growing. However, it takes around 6-8 after FUT or FUE.
A number of clinics and hospitals offer FUT and FUE but there are very few who offer DHI in Delhi.
