Hair transplant surgery is a procedure used to treat hair loss. Various techniques are available, but all hair transplants involve taking hair-bearing skin from one part of the scalp and grafting these pieces of skin onto bald or thinning areas of the scalp or areas of trauma.
Hair loss may be due to common male pattern baldness (also known as androgenetic alopecia), scalp inflammation or injury to the scalp. Injuries from burns, scalds, surgery or car accidents may leave permanent areas of hair loss that can be concealed by hair transplantation.
Certain inflammatory diseases such as lichen planus, lupus or morphea can also lead to permanent areas of hair loss that are suitable for transplantation.
If you are concerned about the way you look or are thinking about cosmetic treatments to boost your confidence, there are alternatives. These include prescription medication, over-the-counter minoxidil lotion or accepting yourself the way you are.
Hair transplantation is not a cure for male pattern baldness. The transplants will cover bald scalp, but they will not protect you from further hair loss. As male pattern baldness is a progressive condition for most men, it might be worth considering combining surgery with medical treatments to slow down the balding process. Discuss this with your doctor.
Before having hair transplant surgery
Things to consider before having hair transplant surgery
Before you opt for hair transplant surgery, some important issues to keep in mind include:
It is important to have realistic expectations. If you start off without much hair, a transplant will not give you a full head of hair. The thicker and denser your remaining hair, the better the results will be.
Generally, thick hair that is light coloured or grey gives better results than hair that is thin and dark coloured.
Following hair transplantation, it can take up to nine months before the hair takes root and begins to fill in.
Think about the cost. Cosmetic surgery does not usually qualify for rebates from Medicare or private health insurance companies. If the hair loss was caused by burns or trauma, however, hair replacement surgery is considered a reconstructive treatment and may be covered by health insurance. Ask your surgeon about any out-of-pocket costs you can expect.
Smokers are at increased risk of complications from surgery. If you are serious about undergoing surgery, you should try to quit smoking.
There may be a need for continuing medical treatment after hair transplant surgery.
