Here is everything you would like to know about permanent hair transplant. Anyone who wants to have a hair transplant operation wonders if it is really permanent. The area where your hair is taken from is called the “donor site” also known as the safe zone. The donor site is generally known to be the area covering the back of the neck and above the ears. The hair here is immune to the DHT hormone which causes hair loss. The hair follicles there are healthy. For example, someone having a hair loss problem at an early age wouldn’t have that problem on the donor area even in their seventies.
In permanent hair transplant operations, the hair roots taken from the donor site have the same genetic codes and features with that area. By this means, as the hair grows on the donor site, the hair on the “recipient site” (the area where the hair is transplanted) will also grow.
After the permanent hair transplant operation, your hair starts to grow. You can comb, wash or dye your hair. The transplanted hair needs delicate care after the hair transplant operation. Someone who has a hair transplant operation must use the products (hair sprays, shampoos etc.) the doctor prescribes them. Besides, the hair transplant operation must be done by an experienced expert.
To sum it all, hair transplant is permanent. Last but not the least, the person who has this operation must take good care of their hair.
Who is eligible for permanent hair transplant?
Those who have hair loss problems as a result of a scalp injury or a scar are eligible for permanent hair transplant. Also, people who want to have denser hair can have a hair transplant operation. Apart from these, those who suffer from thinning hair or hair loss due to genetics, hormonal problems, stress or environmental factors can have hair transplant operations. Those who want to have the operation must have enough grafts. They may not have enough grafts for the operation on the scalp. However, the operation can be done using the hair roots taken from different parts of the body such as the back, neck and chest.
Hair Transplant Techniques
Hair transplant operation, which has different techniques, is a type of a plastic surgery operation preferred by many people. Hair transplant operation gives very good results in conditions of hair loss. With these techniques, hair transplant operations are performed in the areas with thinning hair or hair loss. Here are the permanent hair transplant techniques:
FUE Hair Transplant Technique
As in the FUT (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique, the hair follicles taken from the back of the neck are transplanted by the FUE (Follicular Unit Transplantation) technique. However, it has some differences. The operation is performed by taking hair roots in groups of two three. The reason why this technique is preferred is because it provides a natural appearance. It doesn’t leave a scar on the applied area as it doesn’t involve a surgical procedure.
In DHI (Direct Hair Implantation), hair follicles are directly implanted on the scalp without any additional procedure. The purpose here is to let the hair grow in its original direction. The DHI technique is painless. With this advanced method of hair transplantation, you get permanent results.
In PRP (Platelet-rich Plasma) technique, the plasma taken from the patient’s blood is processed to be stronger and then injected into the hair transplant area. This technique is used to strengthen the results of the hair transplant operation.
