Prior to Hair Transplant Revision

No one compromises on looks and appearances. Your appearance is determined by your clothes, postures, manners, facial expressions and most importantly by ‘hair’. Resultantly, balding guys try to hide their thinning hair using hair wig. But you don’t have to disguise your appearance anymore if you have an appointment with the specialist who will turn your depressing life into a satisfying life. But first, you have to know about the all necessary information when it comes to the topic for hair restoration and different methods for it. The following are detailed commonly used techniques for Hair Transplantation.

The rationale behind techniques for hair transplantation:

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that is used in which the hair follicles are removed from one part of the body which is called the ‘donor site’, and is fixed to the balding part of the body which is known as the ‘recipient site’.

Follicular Unit Transplantation

A procedure in which the surgeon transplants one to four hair from the donor area to the recipient area on the scalp and the groups of one to four hair is generally called follicular units. In this technique, a thin strip of tissue that contains thousands of follicular units from the sides or back of the scalp is taken and thus placed in the balding area of the scalp.

 

Follicular Unit Extraction

A process in which follicular units are extracted at a time from the scalp with the help of an instrument to create small incisions that are circular in the skin around the follicular units and are placed in the balding or thinning areas of the head.

Robotic hair transplant FUE

A robotic computer (ARTAS) helped by images in which follicular units on the scalp are isolated and gathered which is later grafted at the balding areas of the head.

 

Hair Transplant Revision

If patients after transplant want to change the “pluggy” look which is typical of their older hair transplant techniques or they experience additional hair loss after the first transplant procedure, then hair restoration outcomes require to be revised. Patients with a scar following the first surgery can ask for scalp scar revision. Scalp scar revision could be explained as FUE scar revision with trichophytic closure or hair transplantation into the scar. The hair transplant revision procedure fills-in scalp areas with a scar by placing hair follicles around a scar or in a scar.

Besides, the revision procedure helps remove some of the hair follicles from an original transplant. Later, it replaces them with new follicles. The revision results in a natural look compared to previously done unnatural ones. After the hair transplant revision procedure, the patients seem to be much satisfied having undergone all the pains of the hair transplant procedure that starts with the very first one. So, hair transplant revision is sure to win patient’s satisfaction to the best.
