At Rootz, we offer the best hair transplant with satisfying experience and results. Our advanced and innovative transplantation techniques deliver the results you have longed for. At Rootz, we provide body hair transplantation i.e. supplementing the required hair extraction from other parts of the body like beard, chest area for transplantation.
FUE hair transplant is an advanced procedure of implanting individual hair follicles from a part of the body called the ‘donor site’ to a bald or balding area over the scalp known as the ‘recipient’ or ‘beneficiary’ site. Simply put, hair from one part of your body is taken and transferred it to the area where you don’t have hair. Hair transplant surgery is done by harvesting a group of hair or grafts called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant. Other method of hair harvesting is Strip Excision Harvesting, also called Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT). FUE has advantages over FUT such as no linear scar, wider donor area options, more safety and faster recovery. A surgical procedure is done with minimum invasion, hair transplant can be performed for hair loss in both men and women. However, it is a procedure commonly used to treat male hair issues such as baldness,
Besides scalp hair, FUE transplantations are also effective in restoring beard and moustaches, as well as to fill up scars. At Rootz, we also offer hair transplants for women facing hair loss.
FUE Hair Transplant can be 3-4 hours of surgical operation depending on the extraction and implantation of the grafts.
In order to deliver the desired hair transplant results, it is very essential for a Trichologist to foresee and calculate the amount of hair required, the risk involved and safer recovery. Though the hair transplant side effects are typically negligible, such as:
However, irrespective of the minor hair transplant side effects, the surgical procedure is commonly successful and hair transplant results are permanent and natural. Some of the features that make FUE as a preferred hair loss treatment are:
We recommend for Hair Transplantation on following scenarios if: 1. The underlying cause of hair loss is not due to any medical reasons 2. There is an inadequate response to medications 3. The patient having Male or Female pattern of baldness or the reason is hereditary related 4. There is a good volume of donor hair on scalp/ beard/ chest/other parts of the body that can provide required hair for transplantation or covering bald area 5. There are no medical contraindications for surgery/includes/ 6. The patient is looking for surgical options of hair growth or restoration 7. The patient expectations of the procedure is reasonable 8. The patient is of atleast 23 years or older or have plateaued hair fall
Any method of hair harvesting (taking hair from donor area) will leave a scar. The degree of visibility is the question. If the method of hair transplantation is FUT, yes the scars will be visible on short hair as a linear line while the scars will not be that visible in FUE method of transplantation even on a short hair as hair is diffusedly extracted over a larger area
If the volume of the grafts that can be transplanted are higher in number, we plan to undertake the procedure in several sessions. On the higher side, we recommend not to consider transplantation of more than 3,000 grafts in one session. This is advised so considering the comfort of the patient and the surgeon to be part of for long hours and also, it gives enough time for our body to stabilize any allergic reactions from the transplantation if any.
Things to consider before Hair Transplantation 1. Understand the underlying cause of hair loss. Consider transplantation only when there are no underlying medical reasons for hair loss. 2. See that there are no underlying infections (bacterial or fungi) before the transplantation 3. See that you are not on medications like Finasteride or taking medications for cancer therapy (cytostatic drugs), auto-immune disorders (Lupus, Psoriasis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, scleroderma, etc. 4. Inform the surgeon if you have any history of allergies or any known issues with anesthesia 5. Avoid sunburn atleast 1 week before the transplantation 6. Check with the surgeon if the scalp hair follicle is weaker/ too thin for considering transplantation 7. Hair Transplantation is a cosmetic and elective procedure. Discuss with the surgeon on your expectations of hair line, density of hair, the probability of the results and the likely time for the visible results before the transplantation Don’ts after transplantation 1. Don’t smoke or restrict in-take of alcohol for atleast a month before and after transplantation for better results 2. Hold on head bath for about 3 – 7 days of time post transplantation 3. Hold on swimming for 2 -3 weeks post transplantation 4. Avoid direct sunlight for 2 weeks post transplantation 5. Do not take finasteride medication 3 months before the procedure and 6 months after the procedure. 6. Avoid hair dye for atleast 4 – 6 weeks post transplantation 7. Though you will be on local sedation during the surgery, it is advised not to drive under its influence immediately after the surgery 8. Avoid wearing a hat for about 3 weeks to ensure the transplanted grafts are completely anchored
If you can manage to take proper care like avoiding direct exposure to sun, pollution, sunburn, crowded areas (to avoid infections), we recommend to get back to work or travel from the next day after the procedure. There will not be any bandage on the head. However, the common guidance we have is to take atleast 2 – 3 days of time before you get back to your usual routine to avoid external factors that sometimes may not be under our control.
Depending on the volume of grafts transplanted for a complete hair growth it might take 8 – 15 months of time. The transplanted hair falls off in 2 – 3 weeks of time and the new hair will start to grow within 10 to 15 weeks of time. Hair grows at a rate of 10% per month from 3rd or 4th month onwards and by 12 months of time, about 90% hair growth would have reached while the rest might take another 6 months of time.
Just like natural hair, about 10% of the transplanted hair falls in a life time. The rest of the transplanted hair will remain as these transplanted hairs are resistant to hair loss causing hormones.
You might be asked to take pain reduction medication, antibiotics for reducing chances of infections and anti-inflammatory medications to minimize swelling for about 3 – 5 days post transplantation The doctor might also prescribe minoxidil to improve hair regrowth for several months post transplantation if required.
The success rate of hair transplant surgery at Rootz Hair across its centers is around 99.5%. We attribute this high success rate due to our case selection, procedure being performed by a qualified team of surgeons, education of patients on Do’s and Don’ts before and after procedure and setting patient’s expectations on the outcomes before the procedure itself.
