Hair loss, or alopecia, is a common problem that affects both men and women and can be caused by stress, diseases, some medical treatments, and genes. While some of these factors are temporary or can be reversed, many suffer permanent hair loss that can lead to self-confidence and self-esteem issues. Hair transplant in Lucknow at Lucknow Plastic Surgery Clinic can help men and women suffering from baldness or thinning hair.
There are many causes of hair thinning or baldness such as aging, vitamin deficiency, poor diet, certain medications, illness, stress, family history of baldness, hormonal changes, excessive wearing of helmet or hat, and dandruff. Hair loss and baldness affect your appearance and hamper your confidence. In many cases, the hair loss problem is reversible and curable. But in some cases, there is permanent damage to the scalp or follicles, and hair growth becomes impossible. For such cases, hair transplant in Lucknow is a gift of modern science that has made hair restoration possible.
FUT and FUE are two different techniques of harvesting follicular units. With increasing advances in technology and sophisticated equipments both the procedures give equally good and promising results as for as frontal baldness is concerned, FUE is more preferred by both patient and doctor as well because of its less invasive nature and early recovery but for larger areas, it is advisable to go for a combination of two.
The various methods involved in hair replacement or transplantation depend on the area that is balding or thinning and what kind of look you are trying to achieve. In all cases, hair follicles are moved from one area of your body and grafted, or transferred, to the area that is lacking. The donor site is usually on the head.
Usually your surgeon will use local anesthesia in both the donor and recipient areas. On occasion, oral or IV sedation is added. Rarely is general anesthesia recommended? The donor area will be surgically removed, and the scar will be hidden by existing hair. The surgeon will usually divide the removed scalp into hundreds or perhaps even thousands of tiny segments, each containing a single or several hairs. These tiny pieces of your scalp will then be transplanted into the bald or thinning areas on your head.
You may be given dressings for your scalp, which will likely need to be worn for at least two days. Your scalp will be very sensitive, so your surgeon may prescribe pain medication to be taken in the week following your surgery. He or she may also give you antibiotic medicine to reduce the chance of infection.
If you experience extreme or long-lasting pain or notice redness and swelling after the surgery, contact your surgeon to find out if your pain, redness, and swelling are normal or a sign of a problem.
It is vitally important that you follow all patient care instructions provided by your surgeon. Typically, you can return to work after hair transplant in lucknow within one to two days after surgery, although some patients choose to be off work longer. This will depend on the type of work you do. After a short amount of time (sometimes right after surgery), the hair grafts will fall out and will not regrow for approximately three months. This is a completely normal process and will allow new hair to grow in its place. The new hair should look fuller and more natural. It is important to realize that the amount of time it takes for recovery varies greatly among individuals.
