Methods of Hair Transplant: FUT, FUE and AHI
Irrespective of the reason behind baldness, hair transplantation can be an option for people suffering from hair loss. Hair transplantation is the procedure of restoring hair growth, especially in the area where hair growth is absolutely absent. There are several hair transplant procedures available that can help in restoring hair volume and thereby, boost an individual’s self-confidence.
Techniques of Hair Transplant
Depending on the patient’s needs and doctor’s diagnosis, the surgeon recommends any one of the two methods available for hair transplant. The three types of hair transplantation are-
In this method of hair transplant, the surgeon removes a patch of skin from the scalp of the donor area. Generally, the donor site is at the back of the head because the hair is voluminous here as well as less prone to balding. After this, they stitch the area from which they have taken the skin. Then, with the help of a microscope, the doctor separates the skin into tiny follicular units. Meanwhile, in the transplanted area, the doctor makes tiny, single holes. The hair grafts prepared are put into these holes made in this area.
Unlike the Follicular Unit Transplant, in this technique of hair transplant, the doctor takes the hair follicles from the donor site rather than taking a patch of skin. Using a specialized tool, the plastic surgeon harvests hair follicles from the back of the head in the receiving area. This creates a fuller, natural hairline. As there is no removal of tissues from the donor area, there is no need for any stitches.
This is the most advanced procedure for hair transplantation. In this procedure, the doctor uses a special pen-like instrument to implant the hair follicles directly in the transplanted area. The tool has a diameter of 1mm or less that can take out the hair follicles from the donor site. Moreover, in order to implant the follicles, there is no need to make any holes in the receiving area.
