SAY YES TO HAIR TRANSPLANT!

say yes to hair transplant

Everyone loves to take care of their hair. But due to natural and genetic reasons, many people suffer from hair loss problems. Hair transplant is a popular hair restoration technique that is used to permanently cover baldness. The results of hair transplant are so genuine that people won’t be able to tell the difference between your natural and transplanted hair. Hair transplant is a surgical technique where hair follicles are extracted from the donor area and then implanted into the bald area of the patient. Hair transplantation is also used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair and so on.

People in Gujarat prefer Surat for hair transplant surgery because of the increasing cost of hair transplant. Surat has some of the best highly experienced hair transplant surgeons. People are choosing to opt for a hair transplant in Surat as the cost is low and it has a high success rate. All the hair transplant clinics in Surat are well equipped with modern facilities and advanced technology.

The cost of hair transplant depends on the “per graft” basis, technique used and baldness level of a person. The cost of hair transplant is comparatively low in Surat as compared to other states in India. The average cost of hair transplant in Surat ranges between Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 90,000 which is affordable for everyone.

There are different hair transplant techniques available for hair transplants like FUT, FUE, DHI and Robotic hair transplant. FUE is a commonly used technique for hair transplant. DHI and robotics are new advancements in this field. In Surat, the hair transplant techniques available are FUE and FUT.

In FUT, a strip of follicles is extracted from the back of your scalp and then implanted them into the bald region. FUT is painful and leaves a large linear permanent scar that can be visible long after surgery. Whereas in FUE, it is a minimally invasive technique of individually extracting follicles from the backside of your scalp one by one and implanting them into the bald region.  

Many people have doubts regarding hair transplant surgery. I am here to clear all their doubts. I am going to answer their doubts one by one –

1. Is hair transplant permanent?

The hair follicles that are transplanted are resistant against baldness so they will never face hair loss issues again.

2. Will there be a permanent scar?

Most of the clinics now use FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) or DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) which makes tiny incisions to the recipient area and hence does not leave a scar unlike FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation).

3. How much will the surgery hurt?

You will be surprised to know that this surgery doesn’t hurt you at all because local anesthesia is given to the patient before starting the procedure. There can be mild discomfort due to sitting for 8-10 hours in the chair depending on the number of grafts that has to be implanted.

4. How long will it take for my hair to grow after the surgery?

Hair growth is not a drastic process. It will take approximately 10-12 months for your hair to see maximum results. 

 5. How long I have to wait to resume daily activities?

 You can get back to your normal routine after a week of your hair transplant surgery. Avoid doing any physical activity like exercising, gyming during this time.

In this article, we discussed about hair transplant and its various techniques. So if you’re someone who is struggling with hair loss issues, I would suggest you to opt for hair transplant. It will change your life for good. Hair transplant is a very safe procedure with no side effects.

PRP (PLATELET RICH PLASMA) – FOR HAIR GROWTH AND RESTORATION

Dr. Mohit Srivastava

 

PRP is a hair loss medical treatment that is used to increase hair growth, thickening of existing hair and suppress hair loss as it increases circulation in the scalp. In this therapy, first we need to draw blood from the patient. The area is prepped with a sterile alcohol pen. We draw the blood and aim to separate the plasma from the blood.

The extracted blood is now placed into the centrifuge. It is a good practice to get a full set of photos on the patient’s first visit so that we can do a comparison after the procedure. So now we have the platelet-rich plasma separated from the red blood cells. Then the plasma will be transferred or pipette off and placed into the red tube. There is a whitish area between the red blood cells and the plasma that has the highest concentration of growth platelets.

Now the tubes are sent into the centrifuge for their second spin so that we get the highest concentration of plasma for best effects. PRP therapy is used when the patient is concerned about her receding temples that have thinned out due to natural or genetic reasons. So the PRP is injected through both these temples which creates a little bump.

The skin starts to numb after some time which means the anesthetic has started soaking in and doing its job. Then we process for the final PRP after its final spin. First we remove the platelet poor plasma from the top of the tube. Now we’re ready to inject the PRP into the scalp once the calcium gluconate has been activated. Here the procedure of PRP is completed.

This procedure also has a few aftercare precautions that the patients need to take for the best results. They will experience some numbness to the scalp for the next few days. Also as soon as the effects of the anesthetic wear off they are going to have some soreness or sunburn feeling to their scalp for about three to four days. Tylenol or any over the counter pain medication can be used to minimize the soreness.

There is a possibility of some mild swelling along the forehead area in approximately three days after the procedure. To avoid this, you can use ice compresses along the forehead and scalp before going to sleep the night of procedure and also to sleep elevated for the next three nights. You should avoid working out the night of the procedure to avoid swelling and sweating around the forehead and scalp. You should not dye your hair for the next 48 hours after the procedure because the dye can irritate the little injection spots on the scalp.

Anyone is eligible for PRP hair therapy. But there are some exceptional cases. PRP therapy is not advised by many doctors if someone is on blood thinners, is a heavy smoker or has a history of drug abuse. A person can also be rejected if he or she is diagnosed with diseases like cancer, chronic liver disease, thyroid disease, low platelet count and so on.

A total of 3 PRP treatments are planned one month apart. After the third treatment is complete, it takes another three months to see the final results and evaluation. Most patients receive some increased density of their hair follicles and approximately three to four weeks after the first treatment depending on the severity of the hair loss while some people receive their results after the second or third treatment.
