Hair Transplant Repair in India
Since state of the art techniques are used in hair transplantation, a natural-appearing result should be the expected outcome. Older techniques of hair transplantation usually did not produce this level of excellence, and poorly performed procedures typically end up resulting in an unnatural appearance as well. As a consequence, there are a considerable number of patients who have cosmetically unsatisfactory hair transplant results. These unfortunate patients often have unnatural-appearing hair transplants as well as emotional wounds as a result of a previous, adverse experience with their hair restoration surgeons.
A sound surgical plan to perform hair transplant repair in India by experts is especially important in these days of corrective cases for two fundamentals reasons:
- First, these patients often present themselves with a severe shortage of donor hair to use in the reconstructive plan. This aesthetic reconstructive plan will likely represent the first and the last chance to address their cosmetic problem.
- Second, the plan must address very precisely the patient’s primary goal and realistically be aligned with their expectations.
The two most common aesthetic problems seen in clinical practice following hair transplantation are as follows:
- The consequence of progressive hair loss
- The unsightly appearance of hair plugs
Consequences of progressive hair loss:
The best way to avoid problems that result from progressive hair loss is to develop a plan that considers the balance between hair supply and hair loss.
1. Options for management are presented herein.
A conservative and principled surgical plan for the recipient site in keeping with the concept of hair economics.
2. Focus is an initial forelock distribution for the corrective hair transplant.
Thus the planning for hair distribution often most directly addresses the problem caused by the progressive hair loss.
Management of the appearance:
The current technique is to employ a round-punch excision plug. These removed plugs are then recycled and dissected under the microscope into several follicular unit grafts. The yield of salvaged follicular unit grafts is approximately 60-75%.
During hair transplant repair in India, the hair recycled from the removed plugs, as well as additional hair concomitantly harvested from the occipital region, are densely transplanted anterior, posterior, and adjacent to the plug-reduction sites.
A forelock distribution is often selected as the territory for distributing the recycled hair and the newly harvested hair. In the majority of cases, the plug reduction sites are not sutured closed.
Follicular-Unit Extraction Grafts are Transplanted into Strip Scars
FUE is the perfect option for those who are looking forward to hair transplant repair in India. Patients who are prone to stretch-out scars, however, can recur even under the best circumstances.
How many grafts do I require for the procedure?
As part of hair transplant repair in India, at Saraswat Hospital, we measure the existing strip scar and calculate the total surface area in cm2. We then calculate how many grafts are necessary to cover the surface area of the scar by multiplying the surface area by 25-30 grafts/cm2. For example, in a strip scar that measures 20 cm * 1 cm, this would equal 20 cm2 of a scar and multiplied by 30, would equal 600 grafts to create good coverage of the scar.
When there is a total lack of donor hair on the scalp from which to harvest, the next donor regions that we target are the neck and beard hair.
