Hair transplantation procedures in Pakistan are considered as cosmetic surgery. It is suitable for repairing hair in people with pattern baldness or bald scars due to bodily injury. The procedure can be performed for both men and women. A Hair Transplant in Lahore is a permanent procedure and an important decision to change your appearance. That is why it is important to know at least the basic principles of hair transplantation procedures to have an idea or what you can expect in preparation.
Harvest And Implantation Techniques
The surgeon performs an initial examination at the donor site – the source of the hair follicles – which is usually the back of the head because it is genetically insensitive to baldness. These tests determine the natural health and density of the hair follicles for viability. The receiving side, which is the bald area, is also carefully examined to determine the best transplantation method and the number of sessions required for the desired results. The surgeon then decides on one or two harvesting methods.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
FUT or strip harvesting is the oldest of hair transplant techniques. During the procedure, your surgeon will clean and anesthetize both the donor and recipient sites. Thin strips or hair-bearing fabrics, approximately 1 cm wide and 15 cm long, are carefully cut from the donor site. To extract grafts from the strip, your surgeon will dissect it into separate follicular units. The donor wound is closed with stitches and the adjacent natural hair covers the scar. The receiving site is pierced with needles or blades to collect the grafts. Finally, each graft is inserted into the individual perforation openings in a natural pattern and a natural angle.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
First, your surgeon will ask you to shave the recipient and donor sites because it lowers the risk of infection. With the FUE hair transplantation method, a micro tooth with a diameter of less than 1 mm isolates individual follicular units with between 1 and 4 hairs. Needles or micro blades pierce the receiving site in a consistency similar to the harvested grafts to mimic a natural hair pattern. Your surgeon will carefully place the grafts one by one in the small incisions. FUE grafts result in natural-looking hair follicles, but require impeccable precision and skills – making it more expensive and expensive than the stripping method.
Recovery and Side Effects
Transplantation procedures usually take 4-8 hours, depending on the degree of transplantation. There is normally no reason to stay overnight, so you need someone to take you home. After the operation, both the donor and the receiving location can be tender and the surgeon will prescribe some pain and antibiotic drugs. You may also have to wear a bandage for a few days. Most patients resume normal daily operations in about three days. After two weeks you can return to your normal hair care practices.
A few weeks after the operation, the transplanted hair usually falls off; You don’t have to worry about this, because new hair will appear after a few weeks and you would expect full results after 6 to 9 months.
A common side effect or hair transplant is shock loss. This is the sudden loss or part of the original hair at the donor site. Shock loss is not permanent and the hair recovers after a few weeks. Other side effects are the usual aftermath of surgical procedures such as anesthesia, bleeding and skin inflammation reactions, which are easy to treat and quickly disappear within a few days.
How Much is it?
The cost of hair transplantation in Pakistan can be between 20000 and 50000. However, this is not entirely correct, but it should give you an idea of how much it could cost.
