Additional Factors That Contribute To Hair Loss
Hair loss may occur on your scalp or across your whole body, and it can be either temporary or permanent in nature. A variety of causes may contribute to hair loss. It may be brought on by hormonal changes, medical problems, and stress, among other things. One of the most frequent causes of baldness is hereditary hair loss, which affects one in every 100 people.
Heterogeneity: It is often caused by a family history and manifests itself in predictable patterns, such as a receding hairline and thinning hair on the top of the head.
Changes in hormones and medical conditions: Conditions such as hormonal changes associated with menopause or thyroid disorders, among others, may cause thinning of the hair. The condition may also be brought on by events such as pregnancy and delivery in women.
Hairstyles and hair treatments: Excessive hair style, traction, or tugging of the hair may all lead to thinning of the hair.
Radiation therapy: Treatment for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart disease, and high blood pressure may all result in hair loss if you are taking certain medicines or taking certain supplements.
In the case of radiation treatment, hair loss on the treated area of the body may be temporary or permanent depending on the kind of radiation used.
The effects of stress, whether physical or mental, may lead to significant hair loss as well.
What Are My Available Options For Hair Restoration?
Presently, there are two techniques of hair restoration that are extensively utilized and generally considered as the finest treatments currently available on the market. The underlying idea in all of these procedures is the same: healthy follicles that are genetically resistant to balding are taken from specific regions of the scalp and implanted into the patient. Their locations are often the sides and rear of the head. This is the region where the healthy follicles are harvested from; it is referred to as the “donor site.” Healthy follicles are carefully transplanted into the region of hair loss, which is referred to as the “receiver site.” When comparing these two common methods, the most significant distinction is the method used to remove or harvest healthy follicles from the scalp.
Techniques Available For Hair Transplant Surgery
A hair transplant is intended to restore hair by giving you inevitable results that will endure for an extended period of time. This is usually accomplished via FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) or FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation). In both techniques, the grafts or hair follicles are taken from the sides or back of the head before being transplanted back to the bald or thinning areas of the head and scalp.
What Is A FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Hair Transplant?
Follicular unit extraction (FUE), also known as hair transplantation, is a minimally invasive procedure that involves harvesting hair follicles from the back of the patient’s scalp using automated and robotic devices that do not leave a linear scar, and then transplanting them into areas of the patient’s scalp where the hair has begun to thin.
Hair loss is an unwelcome side effect of age, genetics, or medical problems, and most people want to do everything they can to restore their appearance and sense of self. FUE hair restoration is a cutting-edge technique that helps you regain your thick, healthy hair while also boosting your confidence.
Specialist equipment, such as the NeoGraft or Artas, is utilized at our clinic to harvest healthy hair follicles from the “ideal” regions in the back of your head, which are then skillfully transplanted into balding areas. The process is more pleasant with FUE hair transplantation, and there are no worries about scarring. The hair also grows more naturally with FUE hair transplantation.
How Long Do You Expect The Results To Last?
A hair transplant is meant to be permanent in the best case scenario. It should continue to develop and become a natural part of your overall hairstyle. The horseshoe region on the top of your head may continue to shed hair depending on your medical or genetic background, so keep an eye out for it. The good news in this situation is that the hair that has been transplanted will stay in place. When the hair loss becomes noticeable, you may go back and have the procedure repeated.
How Can I Determine Whether Or Not I Am A Candidate For A Hair Transplant?
The vast majority of individuals suffering from androgenic alopecia are eligible for hair transplantation treatment. You may be able to continue with the procedure if you have additional medical issues that enable you to do so. These include thyroid abnormalities, high hormone levels, severe malnutrition, and iron and protein shortages. We can never be certain, though, until you come in and speak to us about your issue. It is necessary for our surgeon to investigate your problem, assess the situation, and provide you with the finest choices for a permanent hair loss treatment.
Which Is Preferable: A FUE Or A FUT Hair Transplantation Procedure?
In terms of quality and natural-looking outcomes, both FUE and FUT hair transplants are excellent choices. The primary difference between the two is the technique used to harvest the cells from the donor region of the body. With FUE, hairs are removed one at a time, and the procedure may take anywhere from one to four hours. Because of the small extraction sites, there are no visible scars, making this a favored technique for individuals with short hair. With FUT, all of the hair is removed at once and in as little as 15-30 minutes. An insignificant scar appears on the back of the head, which is readily concealed by hair that is half an inch in length. When you arrive for your appointment, your doctor will evaluate the most appropriate hair transplant option for you based on your preferences, hair loss pattern, size of the thinning region, and the amount of donor hair that is currently accessible to you.
