The truth about the hair transplant method is like a ‘magic wand’ to cure baldness

The essence of the autologous hair transplant procedure is to redistribute hair on the same body, meaning that the doctor will move the patient’s healthy hair follicles from one location to another.

What is a hair transplant?

A hair transplant is a medical procedure that causes hair or hair to grow in areas of skin that were previously unavailable for people with severe hair loss or long-term baldness. This procedure seems simple but must be performed in a qualified medical facility.

There are also many types of hair transplants, biological hair transplants and autologous hair transplants. Biological hair transplant is a non-surgical hair transplant method that uses biological hair fibers with a special structure (3 layers like autologous hair, with knots at the hair root) to transplant into the scalp without hair or hair. hair loss, scars … to restore hair in the most natural way after transplant.

– Advantages and disadvantages of biological hair transplant:

Because biological hair transplants use synthetic hair, the body’s immune system will react to the newly transplanted hair by developing a local inflammatory reaction or hyperkeratosis at the transplanted hairline. At this time, the hair transplant site may become inflamed or thickened at the hairline. If the elimination process takes place, it can cause an infection, even leading to the loss of the existing hair. In particular, if the origin of biological hair is not guaranteed when transplanting into the scalp, it will cause serious consequences.

On the other hand, if the hair transplant is successful, prolonging the use time will also face many difficulties. Because hair is not produced while mechanical factors such as washing, drying, pressing, perming, dyes, hair styling agents, … can destroy biological hair.

In addition, biological hair cannot grow as long as natural hair, so it is difficult for you to change the length of your hair or expect to be able to change the hairstyle like with real hair.

– Autologous hair transplant:

Up to this point, only the hair transplant method has had the best results. The essence of the autologous hair transplant procedure is to redistribute hair on the same body, meaning that the doctor will move the patient’s healthy hair follicles from one location to another. The hair donor area will be permanently lost, and whether the hair follicles moved away will continue to exist in a new place no longer depends on many factors.

Hair transplant can be understood simply as taking hair from one place to “plant” in another.

The disadvantage of this method is that it requires surgical intervention, causing pain and many risks. Besides, hair transplant itself takes a long time to recover, and the cost is high.

Why do you have to transplant your own hair?

It is not possible to transplant the hair of one person to another because when the biological graft is inserted into another living organism, rejection (heterograft) will occur. People have to take anti-rejection drugs for the rest of their lives, but these drugs are the cause of hair loss.

A hair transplant is not a solution to hair loss, which means it does not correct the cause of hair loss. So if you do this procedure when your hair is falling out or your scalp is sick, the failure rate will be very high.

Autologous hair transplant techniques

There are two basic autologous hair transplant techniques: FUT (follicle unit transplantation) and FUE (follicle unit extraction). Each technique has different pros and cons. Depending on your needs, but more importantly, depending on the opinion, habits and experience of the surgeon, they will advise you on which technique to choose.

– FUT hair transplant technique:  Using a piece of scalp horizontally behind the ear, the technician will separate each hair root one by one to transplant into the bald area.

The gap of the cut skin will be closed with a special stitching technique that does not leave a scar.

– FUE hair transplant technique:  using a drill to remove each hair root from the scalp accurately, leaving no scars, no swelling, no pain and can take hair many times, so the cost of FUE technique is also will be higher.

Today, along with the advancement of science and technology, the hair transplant procedure has been perfected to the point that it can return you to your natural hairline with almost no trace, meaning no scars, new hair grows. healthy, durable, beautiful.

Recovery after hair transplant

The scalp can be quite sensitive after hair transplant surgery. Your doctor will bandage the implanted area for a few days and may prescribe pain medication, an antibiotic to prevent infection, or an anti-inflammatory medication to prevent swelling.

Recovery time will depend on the type of hair transplant surgery you have. Usually, cutting and grafting single hair follicles has a faster recovery time.

Most people return to work within 1 week after hair transplant surgery. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, most hair transplants will fall out within 6 weeks of surgery. New hair regrowth will appear in the transplanted area within a few months, at a growth rate of 1.2cm per month.

Who should and shouldn’t have a hair transplant?

Not everyone can perform this procedure safely. Hair transplants are recommended for people who:

– From 23 years old and up.

– Hair falls out a lot.

Not having any condition that can increase the risk of complications after surgery.

Objects that should not do hair transplants include:
