Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure used to move skin containing hair follicles from one part of the body (donor site) to the bald or balding parts (recipient site). Hair transplants are primarily used to treat hair loss in men and women, as well as restoring eyelashes, eyebrows, and other facial hair.
Male pattern baldness and hair loss in women among the most common health conditions today, affecting 40% of men by the age of 35 and, in some cases, as early as the age of 20 and 30 in women.
Average Procedure length: Hair transplant surgery can take anywhere from 2 to 9 hours depending on the grafts that are harvested and implanted. Hair transplant surgery does not require any overnight hospitalization.
There are several factors causing hair loss which may include alopecia, genetic inheritance and other health problems. Traveling for hair transplant abroad, a vast majority of patients enjoy lifetime results of hair transplant surgery.
Because the hair used in the donor area is not sensitive to the balding process, it will be permanent. The hair continues to retain genetic characteristics after the relocation.
The increasing cost of hair transplantation surgery in many western countries had men and women scratch their heads in search for affordable and effective options to help regrow their hair.
During the last few years; traveling for hair transplant surgery has been growing more in popularity and acceptable among both men and women, with a slight uptick in men traveling for hair restoration abroad.
Each person that wants to undergo hair transplant surgery typically concludes a different case. All hair transplants are not the same and the density of the donor area is what determines the grafts available for a hair transplant.
The average number of hair follicles determines the number of hair available. The color and contrast of your skin will be the determining factor on the impression of density. An important aspect is the average diameter of your hair, as well as the hair texture: curly or straight.
There are two different options that can be used for a successful hair transplant. The two methods are Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT).
The two procedures are similar with the major difference affecting the way the follicles are extracted.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):
The follicular units are extracted directly from the scalp
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT):
A strip of the scalp is removed and the follicles are extracted.
The hair transplant option that most suitable for individual patients suffering from hair loss will be determined by hair-loss tests that are analyzed by the cosmetic surgeon.
Cost of Hair Transplantation
The cost of hair transplants abroad have become a much better value; not only the technology used and quality have improved but graft prices have gone way down.
