Hair Transplant In Men
Hair loss is a far more common problem than most people would think and the vast majority of men suffer from some form of alopecia. With more and more people looking for natural and long lasting solutions for baldness, the demand for hair transplant has increased tremendously.
The first thing to do is to identify if the patient is a good candidate for transplant. Our doctors identify the grade of baldness, quality of donor area and perform a hair analysis test to compare donor and recipient area hair density and thickness. Then we counsel the patient regarding the transplant procedure to be done and the expectations and limitations pertaining to each individual case.
What is a hair transplant
A hair transplant is a procedure of redistribution of scalp hair. In this procedure, follicular units or grafts are taken from the donor area and implanted on the bald area to cover these areas.
Important steps in a transplant:
- Extraction of grafts from the donor area : the grafts should be extracted with minimum transection and without damaging the donor area. The quality of the grafts and the number of hairs per graft are important for good results
- Recipient area : The grafts extracted are placed on the recipient bald areas by making small holes or slits. The direction and angle of these holes are very important to give a natural look to the transplanted hair once it grows. The density at which these grafts are placed also make a difference in the results.
