Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that moves healthy hairs from the back of your scalp (the area called the donor zone) to the areas on top where you’ve lost or are thinning. The doctor uses a microscope to carefully dissect the healthy hairs and implant them where you need them. The resulting hair growth is natural-looking and grows at the same rate as the rest of your hair. It may take several transplantation sessions to achieve your desired results.무모증모발이식병원
There are two methods of performing a hair transplant: Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). During FUT your surgeon will use a scalpel to cut a strip of skin from the back of your head, which is then closed with stitches. Under a microscope the strip is separated into thousands of tiny follicular units, which are then individually transplanted to the areas of your scalp where you’ve lost or are thinning hair.
The new grafts are very fragile, so you will need to be careful not to pull or touch the scabs that form. The doctor will advise you on how to care for your grafts. In the first few days after surgery avoid hats, strenuous exercise and shampooing your scalp as these can cause the scabs to fall off or be dislodged. You can resume normal washing after about a week.
Once the scabs have formed, the grafted hairs begin to grow and develop their natural colour. During the recovery period the transplanted hair will start to shed, but will eventually grow back at the same rate as your existing hair. The resulting hair will be darker, thicker and more full than the original.
You’ll have a scar on the scalp where your surgeon has cut away some of your own hair, but it will be hidden by the surrounding hair and will only be visible to others who know you well. After about six months the grafted hair will begin to grow at a normal rate and will look like it was always growing there.
It’s important to have realistic expectations about the outcome of your hair transplant. You’ll need to have enough hair in the donor area to provide sufficient coverage of your balding areas, and it will be difficult for you to get a full head of voluminous hair with only one surgical session. A full head of natural-looking, dense hair can be achieved with multiple surgical sessions and a few months of healing time in between. The more dense and thick your existing hair is, the better your results will be. Coarse, gray or light coloured hair usually provides the best coverage.모우다의원
