Hair growth is a surgical procedure aimed at permanently correcting androgenetic alopecia. This is a general term that defines some of the methods used to get hair back to the bald area. Hair growth methods include topical, oral and surgical treatments.
Various methods of hair growth surgery
There are various methods of hair growth surgery that you can choose. The two main methods you can choose are -a. ) Scalp flap surgery and b. ) Scalp reduction surgery.
Scalp Surgery-You need to move the flaps of the skin and the underlying tissue from one scalp area to another. The surgeon first cuts out the non-hairy part of the scalp and then replaces it with a hairy scalp flap. The size and placement of the flaps depends on your requirements. You don’t have to worry about scars. It is covered with rearranged hair.
The purpose of this hair growth method is to correct non-traumatic cosmetic imperfections. It is also used to repair traumatic sites and restore their functionality and appearance. Another use of scalp flap surgery is to repair skin defects caused by congenital malformations. Benefits of this hair growth surgery include natural bangs, proper hair placement in the temporal region, and avoidance of distortion of the Hair Restoration pattern. However, there is a risk of certain side effects. These include permanent hair loss at the donor site, scarring at the donor or recipient site, and failure to supply blood to the flap.
Skull trichotillomania surgery– Skull trichotillomania surgery is usually hair growth surgery for people with posterior baldness. It is to remove the bald scalp and bring the half-bearing scalp closer to it to fill the bald area of the scalp. In this hair-growth surgery, the surgeon cuts off a portion of the bald scalp to reduce baldness. There are two parts to the hair growth process in scalp reduction surgery. The first part involves surgical removal of the bald part of the scalp. Other parts require the hairy scalp to be stretched upwards to replace the bald scalp that has been removed. You need scalp reduction surgery, which many people perform in combination with a surgical procedure called forehead lift. This procedure removes the frowning lines from the forehead and the crow’s legs around the eyes. In your case, this surgical procedure can be done through a scalp extension or scalp dilator. This technique stretches the skin of the scalp with hair and better covers the bald areas of the scalp. This hair growth surgery is often combined with hair transplantation. What is the purpose? One possible purpose is to “fine-tune” hair growth in aesthetically sensitive areas. An example of such an area is the hairline in front of you.
Scalp reduction surgery can be performed before, during, and after flocking. The right time is determined primarily based on your needs. How do you decide which scalp reduction technique is right for you? This depends on a variety of factors, including the degree of hair loss, scalp relaxation, and the amount of donor hair. Complications and side effects that you may face include scarring of the sutures and “stretching back” of the excised bald scalp. Scars on the central midline called slot deformation.
Recent Advances in Hair Transplantation-The emergence of some relatively recent advances in hair transplantation techniques provide better surgical results for pattern alopecia. These new hair growth techniques are less complex and painless.
Follicular Unit Transplantation– Currently, it is considered to be the most reliable hair transplantation technique. Its success rate is almost 10 percent. Follicular units are physiological units that need to be extracted and transplanted as intact units. Its benefits include natural-looking hair, more effective surgery by using a stereomicroscope for dissection, and avoiding damage to the follicular unit. But that’s a time-consuming procedure.
Direct Flocking (DHI)-A minimally invasive flocking procedure for follicular flocking, DHI does not use scalpels, stitches or donor strips. This technique is based on a transport technique called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUE exemplifies the latest extraction procedure for follicular unit transplantation procedures. FUE involves the use of custom-made, accurate microsurgical tools. Instead of dissection, the follicular units are extracted directly one by one. One of the main benefits of FUE is the possibility of quality control during the porting procedure. Besides, it’s a simple and painless procedure.
