Hair transplant is a medical procedure where hair follicles are removed from any donor site and grafted into needed areas. The donor site is usually the rear part of the scalp. This is because the hair on this side is usually thicker than those in other parts.

But simply knowing what a hair transplant isn’t good enough info to opt for the procedure. You should know so much, and these FAQs should provide you with the necessary information.

Who can undergo a hair transplant?

Ideally, anyone with a hair loss condition can undergo a hair transplant. But even though hair transplant surgery is a relatively easy process that can produce remarkable results, those who suffer from chronic health conditions such as heart disease, kidney or liver failure, diabetes, and other conditions may not be good candidates for the procedure.

Also, age is an important fact to consider. Experts believe that young men in their early twenties may not be the most suitable candidates for hair restoration operations. This is because the reason or pattern of hair loss may not have been fully determined at this time.

Will a hair transplant procedure hurt?

Like any other procedure, a hair transplant is done under local anesthesia, making the procedure entirely painless. The anesthesia is administered by injecting the area to be operated upon. This process can be discomforting, but the patient becomes immune to further pain during the procedure.

How long does it take to have a transplant?

First, the causes of hair loss are examined in depth. This adds to the time. Next is transplanted size. The procedure may be completed in one session if the balding area is small. But if the baldness is advanced and the donor area is inefficient, the number of sessions may increase to 3, and the surgeon may take days to finish the procedure. Generally, a hair transplant takes four to eight hours. Those with many transplants may be asked to return the next day.

Can the hair be taken from another person for my transplant?

It may appear theoretically viable to use another person’s hair for a hair transplant, but it is not practical. Because of compatibility concerns, only your hair can be utilized. Hair restoration doctors will not undertake transplants using other people’s hair to avoid recipient rejection of the donor’s hair and infection.

Your body’s immune system will naturally reject foreign tissue and hair if you use scalp tissue or hair from others. This could lead to infections, which will prevent your hair from growing, and the treatment will ultimately fail.

Before receiving an organ transplant, the recipient is given medicines and medication, immunosuppressants, for example, to avoid organ rejection. These medications may have various and long-term negative effects in the long run. You may eventually have to be on medication for the rest of your life. As a result, they are rarely recommended unless immunosuppression is required.

Even if all of the preparations have been done, there is still a chance that your body will reject the transplant, and the procedure will fail. Furthermore, immunosuppressants are far riskier than their benefits in hair transplants, implying that donor hair from other persons cannot be used.

But can I use hair from any other part of my body?

Because they are resistant to hair loss, it is medically viable to use donor hair from any region of their body that is DHT-resistant. So, while the hair at the rear part of the hair is most recommended, doctors have assured that hairs from other parts, like; beard, chess, shoulder and legs, can also be used. This is because hair located in these places has similarities to the scalps.

How much will a hair transplant cost?

Getting a hair transplant might cost anywhere from $4,000 to $15,000, depending on the extent of the procedure. These expenses are frequently borne entirely by the individual. A hair transplant is classified as a cosmetic operation by most insurance carriers, and cosmetic surgery is a significant financial investment in one’s well-being. The majority of procedures are regarded as elective.

However, generally speaking, the price of hair transplants depends on various factors, and these factors vary from those with direct and indirect implications. These are:

·        Degree of transplant: Of course, a few grafts will cost less than an entire scalp transplant. Etc. This is the major direct determinant of cost.

·         Type of procedure: Next on this list of direct factors is a type of procedure chosen. There are two forms of hair transplants: FUT and FUE (FUE), and each cost a little bit different. For instance, the FUE often cost more than the FUT procedure. This is because FUE is considered the most effective and go-for option for many patients. Also, different techniques for FUE have evolved, such as NeoGraft FUE, robotic FUE, etc.

·         Techniques to be used: Also, a direct factor, just like highlighted, different techniques can be adopted in carrying out any of the two procedures. For instance, a Robotic transplant will cost higher than having it done manually.

·         Distance from the clinic: This falls under the indirect cost factor because it only contributes to the overall cost. Of course, your doctor won’t charge you for this, but you should factor it into your overall cost when planning for a hair transplant.

Is hair transplant a permanent solution to hair loss?

Hair transplantation is permanent if done properly, and the hair utilized is DHT resistant. Remember, DHT plays a role in hair loss. Rarely, a hair transplant may fail due to certain reasons. One example is when patients do not follow the doctor’s post-operative recommendations. This is normal in any surgical procedure.

 

Are there side effects?

Hair transplantation is generally considered to be a safe procedure. The operation may cause mild to moderate discomfort and swelling, and inflammation of the scalp for a short period (a few minutes, hours, or even days). This is a frequent side effect of surgery during the initial healing phase, and you shouldn’t be concerned about it.
