Role of hair transplant surgery

Role of Hair Transplant Surgery in Treating Baldness or Hair Loss Conditions

Baldness or alopecia is a state of reduction in hair volume leading to hair loss and hair

miniaturization, which makes people look older by exaggerating existing facial aging. Male

pattern baldness is the cause behind a vast majority of cases of hair loss. In fact, when

baldness starts showing, a person has already lost about 50% of the original hair volume.

The normal hair density depends on the ethnic group of the patient. For some ethnic

groups it can be 150-200 hairs per square centimeter, and for some other ethnic groups,

like Dominican men, the normal hair density is at 80-100 hairs per square centimeter.

Baldness is largely the result of a hormone DHT (di-hydro-testosterone) interacting over

time with those hair follicles that are vulnerable to its effects. This hormone binds with the

receptor sites of these vulnerable follicles and causes a thinning of the hair shaft and follicle

over time.

Hair loss is a complex psychological problem because it leads to not only baldness but it

also influences the life and living of the people. Therefore, hair transplant surgery is

becoming very popular and effective for the people who are becoming bald. It is the only

permanent solution for hair loss or baldness, and it can be started at any time or at any

age. Because of its permanency and the natural feeling, increasing number of people are

opting for modern hair transplant procedures.

Hair transplant surgery is not really a new scientific development. It has been evolving

constantly since its origin in Japan in the 1930s, although the surgeons back then were

concerned with replacing damaged eyebrows and not treating baldness.

Hair transplant surgery is done by relocating natural hair. Natural hair can grow either as a

single hair, or in groups of up to four strands in just one follicle. As part of the surgery, hair

follicles from the head or other parts of the body are transplanted into the bald areas. This

procedure gives results that will look and feel like regular hair on the head.

Hair transplant surgery is a delicate and time consuming procedure. While a majority of hair

transplant procedures can last anywhere between 6 to 8 hours, some procedures may also

need 10 hours or more. These hours maybe broken into several sessions at the surgeon’s

clinic to complete the hair transplant. Experienced surgeons like Dr. Alba Reyes, with 15

years of experience in mega-sessions and super mega-sessions for hair transplant

procedures, having a large and well trained team, can carry out such long procedures

without breaking it into sessions. This helps in saving time in working days, reduces total

cost, and improves patient’s satisfaction level.

Hair transplant surgery is always done in a clinic under local anesthesia. It is a low risk

procedure and patient can return to his work within 2-3 days after the procedure. Minor

swelling and in-grown hairs are the most common side-effects, although not all patients

experience these symptoms. After successful hair restoration procedures, the patients

report feeling youthful and motivated in life.

Hair transplant surgery is not taught in medical school and hair transplant surgeons come

from many different disciplines of medicine. All doctors choose to specialize in a particular

field of medicine after they complete medical school and they get training in that area of

medicine by completing what is called a residency.
