It is the most commonly done cosmetic procedure. It is done to solve the problem of baldness completely. Hair transplantation is a minimally invasive surgical technique, without any side effects. Grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding, like the back of the head, are transplanted to the area of baldness.
Hair transplantation can also be done to restore eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair. Dr Sathishchandra and his team have satisfied thousands of clients till date at very reasonable cost, and patients come to him from all over south india and middle east.
The main difference between a hair transplant procedure and any other hair restoration solution is the permanence and results. A hair transplant procedure provides results that look and feel so natural, that no one should be able to tellif one has had the procedure done. Today, hair transplant surgeons make use of different techniques to extract and transplant large numbers of hair follicles.
There are two methods for hair transplantation-
FUT (Follicular unit hair transplantation)- FUT is a procedure where grafts are taken en mass in a piece of strip of hair bearing skin from donor area. The gap after removing the strip in the donor area is closed by stitches or staples.
The only advantage of this method is to cover wider areas as it gives scope for obtaining more number of grafts in a single session. FUT has its own disadvantages. Stitches leave a scar in the donor area and therefore short hairstyles may not be possible as the scar will be visible. Blood loss is more compared to FUE. Post- operative pain and discomfort is usually encountered.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)- At FLAUNT, we follow this method. This procedure is done under local anaesthesia, and it is practically pain free postoperatively.
Using a tiny 1mm instrument, the surgeon will remove individual follicular units from the patients scalp. Follicular units are hair groups containing 1,2,3 or 4 hairs together. The device makes a tiny incision to isolate the graft. The graft is then extracted directly from the scalp, and then prepared for placement by a team of skilled assistants. Working with high power microscopes, these trained assistants isolate, prepare and ensure that the follicular grafts remain in optimal condition. Follicular units are arranged into groups depending on the number of hairs contained within each follicle. The placement of these follicular units is what sets the stage for FLAUNTs natural looking results and artistic difference.
Restored hair will grow in the same fashion as one’s native hair. Approximately 3 months after the procedurenew hair begins to grow. Around 6 months later patient shall notice significant regrowth. The patients hair (native and transplanted) will continue to grow naturally. Patient can join his duty from the very next day of hair transplant procedure.
