Different Hair Transplant Methods

When dealing with the issue of losing hair, in some cases, individuals choose to use hair transplants as a treatment. A hair transplant basically means to take hair from one area of the head with hair and root it into another area of the head without hair. Then, the hair roots itself and begins to grow. In order to accomplish this task, there are different hair transplant methods to use. Below are the hair transplant methods and the details surrounding them.



First, one of the hair transplant methods is called the strip method, of the Follicular Unit Transplant. This method is generally the most popular type of hair transplant, partly due to the fact that it is usually the least expensive method. How this particular method works is a piece of skin is removed from the donor area of the head (the area that has hair). Then, the donor area is sutured closed. After this, the strip is divided into follicular units, which are individual hair groupings. In the bald area, hundreds to thousands of small slits are cut and the individual hair groupings are placed in them. Where the hair was implanted, there is a short-term rash. After a short period of time, the sutures are removed and the scalp is examined. Within about three to four months, the hair transplants should begin growing. This hair transplant method is usually fully done after a year, when the individuals may have normal hair cuts and be able to stop using vitamin supplements, volumizing shampoos, and other such hair loss products.



Second, another


one of the hair transplant methods is Follicular Unit Extraction. In this particular method, tiny puncture holes are placed in the donor area of the scalp. From this holes, the follicular units are extracted. Although this method causes scarring, there is not as visible of a scar as from the strip method. After extracting the follicular units from the holes in the donor area of the scalp, the units are then placed into the small slits in the bald area of the head. Eventually, after a few months, hair will begin to grow from the transplants. Also, within a year this method should be complete, as with the previously mentioned method of hair transplant.



Although hair transplant methods may take time to grow hair and may cause scarring, the overall effect will eventually be a full head of hair. Instead of worrying about bald spots, individuals will have their natural hair growing. Depending on what type of hair transplant methods are chosen by these individuals, the scarring will be different. With the Follicular Unit Transplant method, the persons undergoing this treatment will have a suture scar on the back of their head, or donor spot. For those persons choosing the Follicular Unit Extraction method, they will have multiple small scars over the back of their head, or donor area. Hair transplant methods usually vary in the way that hair is extracted. However, the outcome of the transplant growing hair is the same.
