Most patients are undergoing hair transplant surgery to restore hair growth. But before that, it is also important that you search properly and what type of results should you expect from the entire procedure. We have mentioned all the things which you will expect from its results.
How will the transplant work?
There are two methods in which hair transplant can be performed FUE and FUT. Before the surgery, the patient is given anesthesia so that he does not feel any discomfort throughout the entire procedure.
- FUE: This procedure is named as Follicular Unit Extraction. In this, the hair follicles are taken one by one from the donor area. Then the follicles will be transplanted one by one where hair growth is very less. After the surgery, this will not leave any scar on the scalp. This means you will notice results early because the healing process will become fast.
- FUT: This procedure is named as Follicular Unit Transplantation. In this, a strip of hair will be taken from the back of the scalp so that it can be transplanted where hair growth is very less. After the surgery, it leaves a linear scar on the scalp will is noticeable. Due to this, the healing process will be slightly slow as the wound needs more time to heal properly.
One thing is that no matter which method you choose the results of hair growth are permanent and they will match your hairline. Moreover, the hair will be strong and look shiny also. Additionally, the results will be the same in every case whether the problem is less.
On average, it takes about two to three months to see effective results. This also depends on how you take care of the hair after the surgery and whether you have followed the doctor prescription. The regrowth of hair will not happen at once. The patient is able to see the full growth within 10 to 12 months.
Healing from the transplant
For this, the doctor will guide you what precautions you should take so that the healing is fast and the wound will not be infected. You should not touch the scalp or the treated area. After the surgery, on the treated area there will be redness and swelling for some days. To solve this problem, you can apply ice on the forehead but not directly on the wound. Additionally, you will notice shedding of hair which is the part of the entire process. In case you are facing any issue then you should consult the doctor so that they can guide you properly.
