Hair Transplant Surgery in Pakistan
There are many ways of hair restoration available to anyone who wants to get rid of baldness. Some hair restoration solutions are non-surgical while the surgical methods provide long lasting and successful results. Hair transplant surgeries were initially done in the 1950s. They were done to conceal accidental scars or to cover a gap in hair growth resulting from burns or birth deformities. Due to the success of this procedure, surgeons started practicing it for cosmetic surgeries and aesthetic enhancements. For men as well as women, hair transplants prove to be a permanent cure for baldness. There are two basic ways of hair transplant surgery. One is the Strip harvest method, which involves the removal of hair in a strip that is usually taken from the back of the head since there is good hair growth there. The place from where hair is extracted is called the donor site. Once the strip is removed, the wound on the donor site is stapled using surgical staples and this leaves a scar at the back of the head. This strip is then divided into smaller units and then planted on the bald patch. This method is not as expensive as the other type of hair transplant surgery, called the Follicular nit Extraction (FUE). FUE involves removal of individual hair follicles and then these are planted on the bald patch. FUE requires careful skill and good judgment on the surgeon’s part since he has to observe the right hair pattern and then plant the new follicles in that pattern so as to ensure natural results. The FUE method is much more expensive than strip method since it involves a lot of care and skill. Apart from experience, the surgeon doing this procedure must have an artistic hand to ensure pleasant appearance after surgery. Both the methods are successful but since there are no scars left after FUE, people prefer it more than strip method. The method applied also depends on the amount of work that needs to be done. The final cost of the hair transplant surgery depends on the amount of hair transplanted. The surgery is a simple procedure since it is done under local anesthesia and the patient remains alert. Some cases might be completed in a single session while in some cases it may take a few days for the procedure to be completed. The surgeon always suggests a post surgery routine that must be followed in order to maximize results. It is not a difficult routine and only involves a few pain killers and cleanliness methods. It is advisable that all candidates must read and research about hair transplant surgeries so that they are well aware about what to expect and at the same time; they should be prepared about the kind of results that will be visible. The hair transplant surgeon must be selected after some research so that an experienced and skillful surgeon is chosen.
