THE PROCEDURE FOR HAIR TRANSPLANT

Microfollicular Hair Transplant (MHT) is the current treatment of choice for hair loss or baldness, especially male pattern baldness. MHT can be done by the Strip harvesting method also called FUT, or the Follicular Unit Extraction method which is called FUE. In the FUT method, usually under general or local anesthesia, a strip of hair bearing skin is harvested from that area of the scalp that has not become bald. Micro or mini follicles of hair are dissected out gently and meticulously. These hair follicles are then transplanted in recipient stab incisions at the proposed site for grafting. In the FUE technique, we use an automated follicle extraction device that removes single follicles. Every fifth follicle is removed from the back of the scalp and then transplanted in a manner similar to FUT. Great precaution is taken to ensure that the angle of transplantation is the same as the the required angle of growth. The whole process may involve transplanting upto 1500-5000 hair follicles.

The main cause of generalized hair loss is called androgenetic alopecia in both men and women. In this condition, hormones combined with hereditary predisposition produce thinning and pattern baldness. Less common causes are high fever, severe infection, diet, certain medications, birth control pills, thyroid disease, childbirth, or cancer treatment. Male pattern baldness usually begins with a receding hairline and thinning at the crown, and continues to progress over a lifetime. It is related to your genes and male sex hormones. Each strand of hair sits in a tiny hole (cavity) in the skin called a follicle. Generally, baldness occurs when the hair follicle shrinks over time, resulting in shorter and finer hair. Eventually, the follicle does not grow new hair. The follicles remain alive, which suggests that it is still possible to grow new hair. Female pattern baldness usually consists of thinning across the top of the scalp with preservation of the frontal hairline. The reason for female pattern baldness is not well understood, but may be related to aging, and changes in the levels of androgens (male hormones). For example, after reaching menopause, many women find that the hair on their head is thinner, while the hair on their face is coarser. Although the ultimate degree of baldness cannot be accurately predicted, the age of onset and family history are important factors. Localized hair loss occurs due to scars and infections.
