What causes hair loss?
Androgenic alopecia is the leading cause of hair loss in men and women. Research has shown that by the age of 40 around 40% of men notice baldness. The problem increases with age, and the hair loss pattern is different for men & women.
- Men notice hair loss at the frontal hairlines that increase with age, and the problem becomes deep in the temporal region. The hairline is higher and narrower with time.
Hair loss is localized at the frontal region, or it can affect the top of the crown of the scalp.
- In women, the problem is diffused that can result in generalized alopecia, or the problem can be localized in the frontal region.
Which reason is not affected in androgenic alopecia?
In this case, the hair fall does not occur in the occipital area that is behind the scalp between the ears. This area is resistant to the effect of hair loss. When the patient undergoes the hair transplant in Punjab, the hair follicles are extracted from this part of the scalp.
It is important to understand medications, hypertension, hormonal imbalance, stress, medical illness (protein deficiency, anemia, vitamin deficiency, and thyroid problem), and chemotherapy can lead to problems.
The best method of Hair Restoration
Hair Transplant is the ideal treatment for patients with hair loss. The patient needs to be in good health to undergo the treatment. The donor area should not have a scar or it needs to be relatively dense so that they can undergo the treatment.
Patients who plan to undergo the surgery need to have realistic expectations. Your surgeon will let you know when you can see the desired results and what you need to do to manage the results.
Undergoing the surgery helps the patient to get the natural results and they are permanent also. The hair transplant treatments have advanced a lot which makes it possible to see drastic and improved results.
What is a hair transplant procedure?
During a hair transplant, the follicular units are extracted from the back of the scalp (donor area) and then transplanted to where hair growth is extremely less. Your surgeon can tell you which method will suit you the best between FUE and FUT. In some cases, the surgeon can suggest the combination of both the procedures to give you better results. The hair restoration is performed under local anesthesia to help the patient to stay comfortable during the treatment. The treatment can take 4 to 8 hours, depending on how many hair grafts are required to cover the bald spots.
When will I be able to see the results?
Following the surgery, you will notice normal hair fall. It takes around 3 months to see the initial hair growth. During these 3 months, the swelling and pain will subside with time. You need to take the medications and follow the surgeon guideline to recover smoothly.
To see the natural and permanent results, it takes around 10 to 12 months. Just make sure you take all the preventive measures and take care of your hair as suggested by the doctor.
