Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation

Hair is a manifestation of thebeauty that God has perfected by man's creation, 

and so the problem of hairloss or baldness often worries both men and women. 

The problem is even worsefor women, since beauty is more important to them 

than men.

As for hereditary baldness, it isthe mercy of God that it often affects men, and 

rarely affects females, whichoccurs as a result of excessive sensitivity to the 

hormone masculinity, and canbe treated with some medical preparations such 

as "Regain", but remainsa temporary solution and limited results.


The incidence of non-hereditaryhair has increased at the present time, 

and the percentage of women has alsobecome close to the proportion of 

genetic baldness in men, due to the causes ofmental stess, or lack of 

nutrients, or chronic physical diseases, as happens incases of patients 

with thyroid, as well as in patients treated with chemicalpreparations, 

and can also occur after burns and wounds.


How does hairtransplantation take place?


A local anesthetic is used forhair transplantation, and a high-frequency 

vibrating device is applied to theskin to reduce the sensation of injection. 

This is known as medically withvibration anesthesia, which is enough to 

make the patient feel no pain duringthe hair transplant.

Extracting and separatingthe follicles

Natural hair follicles areextracted in two ways:

Method 1: Medically called the "Follicular UnitTransplantation Method"


A small strip of the back of thehead is taken. The donor area is then 

divided into very small pieces. Eachslice contains only one hair or two 

hairs. This is done under a specialmicroscope, and the wound is completely 



This method is somewhat painfulafter the operation, leaving a simple scar 

on the back, depending on theelasticity of the scalp, but without any swelling 

in the area.


Method 2: is the newest and easiest and is currentlycalled the method of 

non-surgical "Follicular Unit Extraction" ormicro grafts.

The grafts are harvested one byone using modern 1 mm devices from the 

donated area.

The grafts are then separated,cleaned and placed in saline to maintain them 

until they are implanted.


The operation is usually done inone session, during which a number of follicles 

are planted, ranging from twothousand to seven thousand hair, which is usually 

enough for a person only ifthe head completely free of hair.



Results of hairtransplantation

After the operation, you may besurprised by hair loss in the first stage before 

the hair follicles arere-grown again and the hair begins to appear, so the hair 

covers the place thatwas re-planted within a month or two, and within six months 

the hair growscompletely back to its normal length.


Transplanted hair appears to benormal, especially if a person follows a healthy diet 

and takes care of it byputting and using the necessary medicines and creams.


Hair can be shaved and styledafter six months of operation just as it is normal.


Complications of hairtransplantation

Hair transplantation is usuallydone by local anesthesia, so complications are not 

followed. Contagioncomplications are often avoided by taking antibiotics, as well 

as some bruisingthat gradually disappears. Bleeding can occur under the scalp 

and can bequickly overcome with anti-hemorrhagic drugs.


Age appropriate for hairtransplantation

The patient must wait until theage of 20 to complete physical construction. 

The hair density in the donor areawill be completed. The process will be 

facilitated by results of greatersuccess and the prevention of complications. 

Before that age, medical treatmentis better than agriculture.
