For preventing baldness, there are numerous advanced techniques available in the market. There are two methods of hair restoration. First is the surgical method and the second is non-surgical. Under surgical method comes, hair transplantation and in non-surgical method comes hair weaving, bonding, silicon system and taping.
Hair Transplantation is that type of artistic and surgical method with whose aid hair from the back side and either side of the head, beard as well as chest can be taken and implanted on the bald portion of the head. They are permanent in nature and the main reason behind it is that hair on the backside and either side of the head are less prone to fall because of their inherent quality.
Growth of hair starts taking place almost two weeks after the implantation has been done and after one year, full development becomes apparent. Hardly, any distinction could be made between the natural hair and implanted hair. However, in some rare cases, it has been observed that with the age, implanted hair starts disappearing. The area from where the hair is taken for implantation is known as donor area which is stitched after hair is taken. After a period of few days, this area becomes normal and gets suppressed under hair which are already present in that area.
Hair transplantation is done by several methods. One such method is the strip method. In this method, patient is first administered local anaesthesia. After that half inch of hair strip is extracted from the donor area and is implanted in that area of the head which has baldness. Generally, in half inch of hair strip, two thousand follicles are present and in single follicle, two to three hair roots are present. After hair implant, self- absolving stitches are done.
Hair that grows after implantation are similar to natural hair. So, they must be maintained like them. You can go for their cutting, oil and shampoo them. You can even get those coloured and opt for a different hair style too.
People who want to get their hair transplant done must clearly and openly brief the doctors about any illness they are suffering from especially that of chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension or metabolic disorders, any special medication being undertaken as a part of treatment of any illness. After hair transplantation, some medicines need to be taken for some time that prevents hair fall.
