The hair consists of 2 major parts:
Normally there are about 100 thousand hairs on scalp
In males with baldness, this cycle is abnormal-each cycle results in progressively smaller hair (Miniaturization) and final disappearance.This is caused by the action of male hormones on the hairs in people who have inherited the gene from their parents-–hence it is called androgenetic alopecia
Do women get total baldness - no, it is very rare
Too much of hair is bad-and too little is also bad!!!
It is indeed amazing how much effect hair has on personality, despite
serving no useful function in the body.
Remember: There are different causes for hairloss-these are temporary
and do not lead to baldness.Common Baldness is always hereditary and these are
the only two drugs for baldness-every thing else advertised is without adequate proof
This was the method till 1980s!!!
This is a very easy operation .
This surgery using an instrument called punch has no place today
Hair occurs in group of one, two or three
Hairs called follicular unit transplantation. Dissection
Of such units and then transplanting them is called
follicular unit transplantation-
the Rolce Royce of hair transplantation
no of hairs in a person varies from person to person –densitometry determined by trichoscan.
Mostly1/2 hair units
High density- Mostly 2/3/4 hair units
Seen in people from kerala and Tamilnadu
Average density- Mostly1/2/3 hair units
Most south indians have this
The number of hairs a person has depends on the type of units and the type of
Density he has. The type of density is an important factor in the quality of results
he gets after surgery-the higher the density, the better the result.
step4 transplantation in to bald area
Step 2 dissection of hairs
Step1 Donor area
Principle of hair transplantation
Back of head never loses hairs as these hairs are genetically different-
hence they grow even when they are transplanted to the bald area.
Since they are patient’s own hair, they are not rejected.
4 mm.Brain is located 4 cm deep in side the skull
Cream anesthesia (EMLA crème ) before giving injections
Even on operation day, suture area can not be made out, as
very little area is shaved.
Donor area resection takes about 40 minutes
there is no need for suture removal
you cant make out the suture!!
We take great care to avoid any change of hairstyle
damage to hair.
Lasts for 2-3 hours
Hairs as seen under microscope-note the 1,2 and 3 hair units
Note that one, two , three hair units are all very small and of the same size-hence
Need small holes, can be packed closely and cause Very little bleeding-
this is the real highlight of follicular unit transplantation
And then in to scalp
Very little bleeding
Referred to as No Touch technique
Marking of area to be grafted
At the end of grafting, note how clean it looks. Pt goes home like this with very small bandage which is removed the very next day.
The graft will have a brown crust( clotted blood) the next day- You can start shampooing the next day of surgery and the crust clears off in 4-5 days You may have use a cap or alternatively during these period. Alternatively, you can hide the grafts to get normal look-with Topick.
Crust on day 2
Pink plaster is to prevent swelling which may occur on day3-4 for 1-2 days
There is no need for taking leave-you may return to work the very next day
Hair transplantation-medium session-about 850 grafts-lasts 41/2 hours
after surgery-shampooing starts the very next day-the brown crust falls off in 4-5 days
The grafted hairs will start falling by 3 weeks-and will start regrowth by 4/5 month.
After 7 months
Donor-where is the suture?
After 5 months
Note:it takes 9-10 months for proper hair growth
U cant make out the suture
