Hair transplant procedures are very common these days and sadly there are some myths that are associated with the procedure which is just not true. Hair transplantation is a permanent solution for getting rid of baldness and at Dr. Sood’s hair clinic Chief Hair Transplant Surgeon, Dr. Rakesh Sood is the best person to bust the myths that are associated with hair transplants. So we decided to conduct an interview with Dr. Sood who is leading FUE and FUT hair transplant surgeon in Delhi NCR
Dr. Sood is it true that Hair transplant can cause problems in the brain, head, and eyes?
To put it simply the answer is an empathic NO because hair transplants are completely safe and there are no harmful or side effects on the brain, head, and eyes. When the surgery takes place it the process involves extraction and works on only the outer layer of the scalp out of the total 5 layers. So there is no fear of damage to any internal organs which may cause any side effects or damage.
Is the new hair transplants real or artificial?
We only extract the real hair of the patient which is from the back and the side of the scalp The reason for that is the hair extracted from this area of the head has retained properties of activeness and is loss resistant. This leads to the continuous growth and it is very much natural hair growth
Is Hair transplantation and extraction a painful procedure?.
There is no surgery that does not involve some level of discomfort and hair transplant is same but in this procedure, local anesthesia is administered to the scalp before the procedure and this leads to complete and total numbness of scalp. So during the procedure, the patient will not feel any pain or discomfort during extraction or transplant.
Is it easy to tell the difference between transplanted hairs from original hair
This is a good question because if the new hair growth has to look completely natural the doctor must ensure that the depth, angle, direction, texture and color of existing hair is considered carefully and only healthy follicles are extracted. If these parameters are met no one can detect the difference between real hair and transplanted one.
If I get Hair transplants will it survive lifetime
The reason hair from the back of the scalp is extracted because generally people do not go bald in that area of the head and it has the natural resistance to baldness. So, in theory, it can be said that the hair transplant does survive a lifetime if proper care is given and patient leads a healthy life.
