What are the Differences between Hair Implants & Hair Transplant Surgery?

Hair Implants vs Hair Transplant Surgery

Androgenetic Alopecia, also known as genetic baldness, is a common reason most people, be it men or women, suffer from hair loss. While losing 100 to 150 strands of hair regularly is normal, if it goes beyond this rate, it should be a cause for concern, thereby prompting you to opt for a treatment. However, with scientific innovation and the advancements of medicine, several techniques can be helpful; two of the most common ones are hair implants and hair transplant. To choose the one that works best for you, though, you would have to understand the difference between them.

The Basic Contrast between Implants & Hair Transplant Surgery

Hair implants and hair transplant surgery are both options one can choose to gain new hair in the thinning areas. However, the processes both these treatments follow are different and thus have distinct results. Through a hair transplant surgery, a donor area from the scalp (back or sides) is determined from where healthy hair follicles are extracted. The follicles are then stored in a holding solution for best effects before implanting them to the balding area in a natural pattern. Through the hair implant process, on the other hand, experts implant artificial hair to the thinning area, the difference between the real hair and the ones implanted in this treatment, thus are stark. Due to its nature of causing skin infections, hair implants are also banned in a few countries.

The Final Result Derived from Both the Procedures

If we think of with a holistic point of view, both the procedures are surgical and only when performed with extreme precision by experienced professionals can they derive natural-looking results. In the hair implant process, since the hairs implanted are chemically treated and are artificial, the results might not look nice and certainly not match the natural colour of your hair, thereby causing skin infections. In the hair transplant surgery, though, since the donor follicles are extracted from the patient’s scalp and then implanted to the recipient area, the results are more natural, thereby ensuring no one can even guess you’ve undergone surgery once you have absolutely recovered.

The Hair Grooming Techniques in Implants & Transplant Surgery

Once the hair transplant surgery is complete, you would have to care for your new hair as much as (and even more than) your real hair. This will ensure that your hair looks natural and grows to a fine length. As far as grooming is concerned, you can cut your hair whenever you wish and get a hairstyle according to your preferences, easily. When it comes to hair implants, however, the implanted hair will never grow like natural hair, thereby leaving you with a basic hairstyle for the rest of your life which you would have to maintain. You might also end up with a terrible infection on your scalp.

Adaptability by the Body upon Reaching Complete Recovery

Once the hair transplant surgery is over, the newly implanted hair takes some time to adjust to its new surroundings and go through a period of shock loss. Following this, the hair starts going back to its natural growth cycle (Anagen-Catagen-Telogen). Since the donor hair follicles and the recipient area belong to the same patient, they adapt to the body cycle. However, when it comes to hair implants, the implanted hair is artificial, and so, the body might reject it, thereby leaving you to go back to your balding stage soon enough.
