Hair Transplant / Hair Restoration - Dr. Kapoor's Centre Patiala
Hair Transplant Surgery is transplant of hair follicles from donor site to bald area. Hair Transplant was for treating traumatic alopecia in Japan around 1939 by Dr Shoji OKUDA. Hair Transplant has come a long way; Dr Orentreich in 1956 has laid the foundation or modern hair transplant methods like FUT and FUE. He showed the Donor Dominance property of hairs, means when hair from the back of the scalp is transplanted in from grafts or hair bearing flaps. They grow like natural hairs and maintain bald resistance property.
Earlier Hairs were transplanted in form of plunges or hair bearing flaps. Plunges are the large group of hairs. As technology advanced methods like mini and micro grafting were introduced. Mini grafts of hairs were used to give high density looks and micro grafts were used to define frontal hair line to give a natural look. Mini graft contains 5-6 hairs while micro grafts are small consisting of 2-3 hairs.
In 90's Follicular Transplantation Method was evolved. This method showed the dissection of follicular hair under stereo microscope and that follicular grafts were then transplanted to bald area.
Hair loss leads to baldness, in medical terms it is called alopecia. Hair Loss can be differentiated according to gender.
Male Pattern Baldness is also Androgenic Alopecia. Male Pattern baldness is related to hormones and genetics. Hair grows in small cavity like structure called follicle.
Baldness occurs when follicle stops growing hair due to DHT deposition at follicles but the Follicle remains alive. Hair can still be grown there. Hair loss starts occurring from frontal hairline and slowly moves backward. To Treat Male Pattern Baldness there is only one option "Hair Transplant".
Female Pattern Baldness is somewhat similar to Male Pattern Baldness except it's not due to hormones but due to aging still there are not many clues for Female Pattern Baldness. In Female pattern Baldness Hair loss starts by thinning hair at crown. Frontal Hair line for female is unaffected. Female hair loss usually doesn't progresses to total baldness. Female Pattern Baldness can also be treated by "Hair Transplant".
Hair loss can be monitored and medicated but cannot be stopped. However hair transplant is like magic on baldness. Hair Transplant can be handy in treating baldness permanently. As seen in history of hair transplant, Concept of hair follicle and grafting them has revolutionized the treatment procedure.
Mini and Micro hair grafting methods led us to FUT and FUE methods of Hair Restoration. Earlier in absence of hair transplant methods baldness was treated using hair bearing flaps and scalp expansion with the help of tissue expander.
FUT Hair Transplant : Most Common hair transplantation procedure is follicular hair transplant which is also known as strip method in hair transplantation. Hair restoration surgery is one of the common surgeries performed so widely in Punjab. In FUT Method of Hair Transplantation, Hair bearing strip is surgically removed from the back of the scalp. Hair Follicles are dissected; Hair follicles are prepared and put in Cold solution of Ringer lactate to maintain their viability and increase hair growth until the hair follicles are transplanted.
During Hair Transplantation small holes and sites are prepared at bald area to implant hair follicles. Holes and Sites are created in such a way that the hair grows normal like natural hairs.
Donor Area: Hair strip from back of scalp is called donor area. Reducing scar to minimum visible state is one of the key factors in successful hair transplant. Before Starting, Hair transplantation area is marked for the requirement of hair grafts and based on that possible numbers of grafts are taken out.
Another milestone method in the field of hair restoration surgery is Follicular Unit Extraction. With huge success for Follicular Hair Transplant FUE method followed.
Follicular Unit Extraction: Most common Hair Transplantation that is carried out in large scale is FUE Hair Transplantation. In FUE Hair Transplant with the help of machine or device Hole is created around follicular unit and whole follicular unit is taken out and implanted in recipient area creating slit or hole. This method for hair restoration surgery is directly advantage over FUT method for Hair Restoration, because it is Scar Less. It has some limitation also. We will discuss regarding them later. FUE method leaves hole after follicular unit is taken out making it dead hence density of hairs from donor decreases.
