A hair transplant is a surgical procedure designed to transplant hair follicles in the thinning or balding areas, extracted from the area of your scalp that has enough hair follicle supplies. The results of a hair transplant are natural looking and permanent.
If you are considering a hair transplant, an initial consultation is arranged between you and the hair transplant surgeon in which your scalp is examined carefully. Your doctor will analyze your needs and expectations to make an appropriate treatment plan for you.
How does One Prepare for the Transplant?
You will be given some guidelines to follow before the treatment to make the surgery and recovery process easier and comfortable.
- You may need to quit smoking for at least two weeks before the surgery
- You may be asked to avoid alcohol consumption a week prior to the surgery
- You will be prescribed vitamin C supplements as it helps in healing
How is the Procedure Performed?
A hair transplant surgery is performed under a local anesthesia. Your surgeon would extract the hair follicles from the donor area. Hair grafts are formed and transferred to the marked recipient area which can be either eyebrows, beard, chest or balding scalp. The process can take up to 8 or more hours. The duration of the surgery depends on the number of grafts required.
What is the Recovery Period Like?
Once the hair transplant surgery has been completed, you will feel soreness in the treated area for some time. The growth of hair will be seen within two to three weeks. If you have chosen a FUT hair transplant, you are likely to experience a linear scar formation in the donor site. However, a scar should not be formed after a FUE hair transplant.
What Aftercare is Required?
You will have to take rest for two to three days. You can start your daily routine after the 3rd day of the surgery. You will be prescribed specific shampoo and conditioner to take care of your hair. You will be required to make follow-up appointments with the surgeon so your progress can be monitored.
