One of our guys (Mr P) has arranged to get a hair transplant this summer.
While we offer non surgical hair solutions for guys with hair loss, hair pieces, and the maintenance of same, for some this is just a holding position until a transplant could either be afforded or a place recommended!
Many guys have over time expressed their interest to go down this route but are nervous, not just of the surgery itself but the whole uncertainty of the results!
Follow this blog to share in the journey!
Its now 8 weeks and counting until the transplant - in Turkey
Mr. P is scared, excited in equal measure.
The flight is booked!
The arrangements have been made!
For this first blog post we are going to talk about hair loss and the hair transplant procedure.
Hair loss is a common concern for many people, and hair transplant is one of the available treatments for addressing significant hair loss or baldness. Here's some information on hair loss and the hair transplant procedure:
Hair Loss Causes: Hair loss can be caused by various factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, medical conditions (such as alopecia areata or thyroid disorders), certain medications, stress, nutritional deficiencies, and aging.
Non-Surgical Treatments: Before considering a hair transplant, individuals may explore non-surgical treatments such as medications, low-level laser therapy, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. These treatments aim to slow down hair loss, promote hair regrowth, or improve the overall hair condition. or to have hairpieces or fillers to improve thier appearance.
Hair Transplant Procedure: Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that involves moving hair follicles from one part of the body (known as the donor site) to the balding or thinning areas (known as the recipient site) on the scalp. The most common technique used is follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or follicular unit extraction (FUE).
FUT: In FUT, a strip of scalp containing hair follicles is surgically removed from the donor area, usually the back or sides of the head. The donor area is then sutured, leaving a linear scar. The strip is dissected into individual follicular units, which are then transplanted into the recipient site.
FUE: FUE involves extracting individual hair follicles directly from the donor area using a punch-like instrument. These follicles are then implanted into the recipient site. FUE leaves tiny, dot-like scars that are less noticeable than the linear scar from FUT.
Mr. P has opted for the FUE procedure
Recovery and Results: After a hair transplant, the transplanted hair may initially fall out, which is normal. New hair growth typically begins within a few months. The final results can take up to a year to become fully apparent. Following the procedure, it's important to follow the surgeon's instructions for post-operative care to ensure proper healing and maximize the success of the transplant.
2. Considerations and Consultation: If you're considering a hair transplant, it's essential to consult with a qualified and experienced hair transplant surgeon. They will evaluate your hair loss pattern, discuss your goals, and determine the most suitable approach for your case. They can also provide you with information on potential risks, costs, and expected outcomes based on your specific situation.
Remember, while hair transplant can be an effective solution for hair loss, it may not be suitable for everyone. Consulting with a professional is crucial to determine the most appropriate treatment option for you
