Things To Know Before Getting A Hair Transplant
Are you a victim of hair loss? Many of us are to some extent. Loss of hair as such is seen almost on a everyday basis when you either take a shower or while getting from bed. We often see our pillows with a few strands of hair now and then. That is hair fall.
Hair loss is a point where, even after the hair fall stage crosses, that particular part of the head is devoid of hair. The follicles are absent or have lost of the ability to grow. This, in turn, becomes what we call a ‘bald patch’.
Now not everyone looks good with a bald patch right? People think different of them at some time, specially if they are young. Not everyone is considerate enough to understand.
But what if there was a way to cover up that bald patch and have hair again?
Hair Transplant procedure is a method where trichologists(hair specialists doctors) surgically remove patch of hair follicles from the side or back of your head(Donor area) and surgically again transplant it to the bald patch of your head.
Hair transplant surgery is an effective way to cover up the part of hair which has been a victim to hair loss and is a common procedure practiced all over the world.
But a hair transplant surgery is a surgical procedure, a delicate one as well, so there are quite a few prerequisites involved before getting a hair transplant surgery done.
So what are the things which should be known before getting a hair transplant surgery done?
Are you the Right Candidate for a Hair Transplant Surgery?
First things, first. Before going for any kind of cosmetic surgery, it must be ensured that the patient is the right candidate or is fit for a surgery or not. The same with Hair Transplant Procedure.
The perfect candidate to undergo a hair transplant procedure is one whose hair transplant is stabilized. The reason is, hair loss does not stop even after a hair transplant surgery is done hence, a person with stabilized condition of hair loss is the ideal candidate for a hair transplant procedure.
Hair Transplant Procedure is NOT magic!
It is very important for you to understand that hair transplant procedure is not all healing. It is a fix. Hair loss is a condition which can be caused due to various underlying conditions.
Also it must be understood that regrowth can be different from person to person. Your hair transplant surgery mainly depends on the number of hairs you will have in the donor area. To add to this, a hair transplant surgery does not guarantee dense hair like you had before.
The hair which is transplanted can be treated like normal hair.
It is often a misconception where you might think that hair post a hair transplant procedure might need more and different kind of care but that is not the case.
The sole purpose of getting a hair transplant surgery is to regain their lost confidence when there was hair loss. It is always better to remain confident and not lose your cool and become conscious, right?
Washing, conditioning, the whole deal is the same for transplanted hair just like normal hair.
Hair Transplant is Permanent!
Okay, before you think this is contradicting, when we say it is permanent, it means that you should do a thorough research before getting the hair transplant surgery done.
Permanent in this case, means irreversible. It is important to consult a reputed trichologist and surgeon to understand the extent of your hair loss and also what method of surgery will be necessary for the condition as once the hair transplant procedure is done, it is done. Revision is done and it is not Cricket, where there are trial versions, just like there are trial balls.
Hair transplant surgery is a straight up procedure which requires straightforward research and consultation before it can be done.
Post Hair Transplant Surgery Precautions are Vital
Even though, this part is after the surgery, the surgeon usually tells you this aspect of the hair transplant procedure, before the procedure itself. It is your job to follow the precautions by book and religiously.
Post the hair transplant surgery, the transplanted hair needs a lot of attention and also you will need many days of rest.
Some of the precautions are:
- It is important to wear a shower cap while bathing.
- You cannot sleep on your side and specially on the side of the head which has transplanted hair as the hair follicles, as post surgery, the newly transplanted follicles are highly fragile in nature.
Apart from all the above things you need to know before getting a hair transplant procedure, it is always needed to get a thorough and detailed consultation so that all the details of the hair transplant surgery is known and there is no room for any kind of complications due to being unaware.
