Statistics show that by age 35, about two-thirds of men have some degree of hair loss. By the age of 50, 85% of men have significant thinning of hair. Most interestingly, of all people who suffer from male pattern baldness, 25% started losing their hair before the age of 21.
The good news is that the solution to hair loss is now a reality and is beyond uncomfortable artificial hair transplant; the procedure is called hair grafting. The number of men undergoing hair grafting is significantly increasing.
The reason for this is the effectiveness of new techniques that really deliver results.
Artificial hair transplant has made significant progress over the last 10-15 years. Most of all, it was an operation using only follicular units, which provided very effective and natural looking results.
Natural Hair Transplant
During the operation, the doctor takes the grouped hair follicles called grafts from the donor area (back of the head) and transplants them to the affected area. Graft contains from 1 to 4 hair follicles.
- Characteristic of this type of procedure is that it gives a much more natural appearance than previous techniques.
- However, the result depends to some extent on the donor area and the amount and quality of hair for transplantation.
- The design of the hairline is crucial. The natural hair line is different in shape and density in every person.
- A pre-surgery consultation gives a good idea of what can be expected as a result of the procedure.
When the graft is transplanted into the recipient’s area, it begins a process that takes several months and may not be what you expect. In the first 3 days after transplantation, the grafts begin to work to restore blood supply. Therefore, the hair is separated, starting from 1 week to 6 weeks after the hair grafting operation has been performed. In some patients, no hair loss graft surgery was observed. The earliest hair growth begins usually at the third month.
Artificial hair transplant is not natural, if you do not want to have natural hair the best gets a wig!
