How To Check Hair Transplant Eligibility And Suitable Technique?

In addition to concentrating on offering top-notch facilities, Dr. Suneet Soni, the director of Medispa Hair Transplant Clinic, makes excellent decisions and has keen observational skills, both of which are essential to our high success rate. He is well-known throughout the world for being an extraordinarily skilled hair transplant surgeon with an unrivaled sense of artistic hairline design. One of the best hair transplant surgeons in India, he receives inquiries from celebrities and hundreds of other domestic and foreign patients each year. 

How is the eligibility for a hair transplant determined?

Listed below are a few of the key elements that explain why patients are candidates:

1. Adequate hair density: Since only your own hair can be used for the transplant, there should be enough of it in these areas to provide permanent hair roots. You are unquestionably the ideal candidate for a hair transplant if the hair density at the donor area is suitable and could comfortably cover the bald area.

2. The patient's health: Certain medical conditions can affect a patient's ability to heal after surgery or deal with hair loss issues. Therefore, if the person experiencing hair loss is otherwise healthy, the procedure may be possible for them.

3. Hair loss stability: It is reasonable for the hair loss to be stable before undergoing a hair transplant because the hair loss could progress. You may be a good candidate for hair transplant procedures if your hair loss has been stable for longer than three years. However, since hair loss could still occur in areas where there are already hairs, the hair transplant procedure does not assure against future baldness. The permanent results of a hair transplant are guaranteed, and the transplanted hair grafts will undoubtedly last a lifetime.

4. Underlying localized pathology: Before planning for a hair transplant, the hair transplant surgeon must be certain that there is no underlying pathology in the scalp skin that could cause the hair transplant to fail. You are undoubtedly the best candidate for the hair transplant procedure if your scalp is otherwise healthy.

5. Realistic expectations: In order to achieve satisfactory results after a hair transplant, the patient must expect realistic results. After evaluating the entire scalp during the consultation before the procedure, the hair transplant surgeon went over what to expect.

Hair transplant techniques:

Graft harvesting methods, on which hair transplant is based in two main ways, are the most crucial stage of the procedure:

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) hair transplant: The FUT hair transplant method involves the removal of a thin slice from the back and side of the head (donor area), preferably after which they are sent to a room for graft segregation where individual follicular grafts and enough tissues surrounding the follicles are separated. The recipient area's bald spot is the site of transplantation for these harvested follicular grafts. 

FUT hair transplant technique benefits:

1. The technique allows for the harvesting of a greater quantity of follicular grafts—between 3000 and 3500 grafts.

2. The method might provide more coverage in complex cases.

3. The method offers a minimal or no-shave procedure, which is highly favored by people, particularly women.

4. This method has long-term advantages because it leaves plenty of hair follicles for subsequent sittings.

5. Because this technique is carried out under high loop magnification, there is a lower risk of damage to the follicular grafts.

6. It offers fewer opportunities for overharvesting, ensuring that the outcomes are permanent.

7. Thanks to recent developments, a trichophytic closure can be used for suturing, leaving a nearly undetectable scar.

FUE hair transplant (Follicular unit extraction): Using a punching device, it is preferable to extract hair follicles one at a time from the donor area on the back and sides of the head. The recipient's bald area is then treated with these extracted follicular grafts. The procedure to insert the punching device into the scalp's underlying tissues is typically blind and can only be done by someone with special training and a lot of experience.

Facts about the FUE hair transplant method

1. This method allows for the extraction of fewer follicular grafts—roughly 2000–2500 grafts.

2. This method is preferred in cases of initial baldness and hair transplantation because it offers fewer follicular grafts.

3. Using this method requires shaving the entire head, which could be embarrassing.

4. This method results in almost undetectable scarring.

5. It requires less infrastructure and labor than the FUT hair transplant method.

6. Due to the lenghty procedure, this technique is a little more expensive than FUT.
