Hair Loss in men has been rampant in recent years. Losing hair is a natural activity and about 85% of hair is active and in the growing phase (anagen) and the rest 15% is in the resting phase (telogen). Thus you tend to lose about 100 hairs every day and that is quite normal. And this also shows that hair loss is actually quite paradoxical, you lose hair to grow more. But there are times when you will lose more hair and you will also seem to notice that you lose hair in patches and also your hair starts to grow thin. But even this can be explained when it happens within a short time, it may be because you had a fever or else there was an infection which caused the temporary shock and your body will recover within 3 or 4 weeks after the cause subsides.
Due to the volume of hairs required for natural results in some cases, your FUE hair transplant can take a considerable amount of time. The intricacies of the procedure will be discussed with you in full in your initial consultation and before you are required to pay any deposit. The FUE technique has become the most popular hair transplantation technique due to the minimal scarring which occurs with this particular technique. While Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) has taken over from Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) as the method of choice for transplant procedures, the FUT hair transplant in is still commonly in use today. Hair loss affects a huge number of men and women in the India and not every patient will benefit in the same way from FUE procedures. As a result, FUT hair transplant methods are still in use and can provide lasting results in these patients.
FUT hair transplants often referred to as the ‘strip method’, features the extraction of a strip of skin from the scalp. This is typically taken from the healthiest area of growth, which is often the back or sides of the scalp. This strip is then separated into groups of around 1-3 hair follicles. A small incision will be made into the area of thinning or hair loss on the patient’s scalp and the follicles will be implanted into these areas. FUT was the dominant form of hair transplant for many years and while FUE has taken this practice and offered a more modern alternative, the benefits of FUT are often something to consider. A FUT hair transplant procedure often sees higher volumes of follicles transplanted in every session undertaken, and are therefore the better option for those who may not be able to dedicate time to multiple transplant dates. Patients with weaker follicles or with limited donor availability may also be suggested FUT transplants, as FUT often sees a higher rate of survival for the hair follicles both during, and after transplantation. FUT procedures are also recommended for those requiring larger hair transplants. This is due to the higher yield of follicles needed and the superior results often gained as a result.
