Hair is often regarded as one’s personality trait and poets and writers have written and romanticized it. Hair is an integral part of our personality and has lot of influence on the way we look. But when we start to lose our hair it can be very dreadful because we all fear hair loss and it does not matter if you are a male or a female. Hair loss is something both the sexes would love to avoid. But sometimes no matter what precaution we take eventually we lose hair along with loss our confidence.
However a lot of progress has been made in the field of hair transplant and it is at this juncture hair transplant becomes a simple and viable solution to hair loss.
The procedure is quite straight forward but needs an expert and once you have found it then it is half battle won. In hair transplant healthy hair follicles from the donor area is transplanted to the balding area of the scalp. In most cases the donor area is the back area of the head because it has the right texture to make the end result look natural and is genetically resistant to balding.
There are two methods used extensively in hair transplant
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
Follicular unit extraction or FUE is a procedure in which individual follicular units are extracted directly from the patient’s donor area. The grafts are carefully harvested and then implanted immediately and that way maximum grafts take root giving patients better coverage.
Follicular Unit Transplantation or FUT is a hair transplant procedure where a major part of the patient’s scalp needs grafting. It is also known as strip method because a strip of hair follicles are surgically removed which results in a linier scar on the back of the head.
But fret not the scar is very thin and is totally concealed when the hair on the back grows back. Both are very effective methods and if you can find a doctor who can perform both the techniques it will give you the opportunity for maximum hair coverage. Hair loss is fast becoming a myth because with hair transplant the results will look natural and you can gain back your lost confidence.
