Hair transplant types
The procedure can be carried out in various forms. The doctor will decide which is the most suitable for you. Consider the following –
Hair transplant graft-involves the transplant of 1000 -2000 hair follicles in a single session. The donor area is trimmed and the area is put under anesthesia. Small sections of the scalp of the donor area are taken and transplanted on the recipient area. A punch graft may extract 2 -15 hairs in a single go while a slit graft may be able to extract 4-10 hairs.
It is used when the hair loss is excessive and a large area needs to be covered. It might require a stay in the hospital and administration of general anesthesia. A balloon-like device is placed under the scalp of the donor area. The tissue inflates with the saline solution. After a few months,the scalp grows enough skin which makes it ready for transplant. After cutting the bald section of the scalp, the newly grown hair-bearing area is cut away , moved to the new location and stitched.
Another form, called scalp reduction surgery is also used.
