Hair loss or hair shedding is a common problem these days and both men and women are suffering from it. Most of the times, this condition leads to baldness and there are a number of men who experience this condition in quite a younger age. Whoever suffers from hair loss or baldness wants to get rid of this condition as quickly as possible. It not only affects your physical appearance and makes you look older in young age but also makes you cautious and lowers your self esteem and confidence level. This is the reason that people opt for various hair restoration or replacement methods.
Often people go for hair replacement systems considering them a quick, easy and inexpensive solution to hair loss or baldness. But actually this method is not convenient because it does not give permanent results. Though there are a number of manufacturers providing such hair replacement methods that give natural looking results but still they are not a good choice.
May be in the past, you have tried certain other methods also as the solution to thinning hair or baldness besides hair replacement systems. You may also have tried vitamins, rogaine, minoxidil, finasteride, special shampoos and lots of other products to get rid of baldness but all these methods are ineffective. The only permanent solution to baldness is hair transplant surgery.
Hair transplant has now become very popular because gives highly beneficial and natural looking results. Furthermore, the new techniques for this procedure are less invasive and more effective and this is also one of the reasons that it has become the most demanded. Hair transplant is actually the procedure in which hair follicles are extracted from area of the scalp having denser hair and are implanted to the bald area. The growth of newly transplanted hair is same as of the other hairs.
The two techniques that are used for hair transplant procedure are FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) and FUE Hair Transplant (Follicular Unit Extraction). FUE is more advanced and less invasive as compared to FUT. The difference between both the techniques lies in method of extracting hair follicles from the donor area – area from where hair follicles are extracted, mostly back of scalp. In FUT, strip of scalp is taken from back and then it is divided into individual hair follicles in special environment. After division, they are implanted in the bald area of scalp. On the other hand, in FUE hair transplant, hair follicles are extracted in groups of 1 to 4 hair follicles with the help of extremely small punching tool.
Both the techniques are effective but these days most of the people are making FUE their choice because it is less invasive, leaves nearly invisible scars and requires very less time for recovery.
In short, hair transplant is the only permanent and the most effective solution for baldness and is the best alternate for hair replacement systems and other methods.
