What is Hair Transplant?

In a world where appearances matter, hair loss can have a profound impact on an individual’s self-esteem and overall self-image. Baldness is the most common cause of progressive hair loss globally. Interestingly baldness can affect both men and women of any age. Baldness affects approximately 50% of men and the occurrence progressively increases with age. Similarly, 13-20% of ladies suffer from this problem.

However, modern medical aesthetics offer a transformative solution that can help individuals regain their hair and self-assuredness: hair transplants. Renew Clinic, a leading name in the field takes pride in offering a comprehensive range of meticulously executed hair transplant procedures. These encompass natural-looking hair transplants, beard transplants, eyebrow transplants, and targeted treatments for scarring alopecia and traction alopecia, as well as corrective interventions for previously unsuccessful hair transplants. 

In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the intricacies of hair transplants, discussing the different types, the significance of qualified practitioners, the profile of candidates fit for the procedure, and the unparalleled expertise of Renew Clinic’s esteemed hair transplant surgeons.

Why do we get bald?

The medical term for baldness is “Androgenetic Alopecia”. The term is composed of two terms: ANDRO: meaning androgens, a hormone namely testosterone and dihydrotestosterone; and GENETIC meaning familial tendency. Hence, baldness is a process caused by genetics and hormonal changes that result in hair loss.

Our body liberates a hormone named testosterone secreted from the testes in males and minimally by ovaries in ladies. The hormone is transformed into a potent hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by an enzyme called “5-alpha reductase”. This enzyme 5-alpha reductase, is expressed more in the front and the vertex of the scalp (the area where we get bald). And under genetic influence, people gradually get thinning of hairs and finally go bald.

Understanding the Essence of Hair Transplants

At its core, a hair transplant is a surgical procedure designed to deliver regenerative stem cells into the bald area. This innovative technique involves the relocation of hair follicles from areas of robust growth—often the back or sides of the head—to regions suffering from hair thinning or baldness. The ultimate objective is to achieve a lasting and natural-looking solution to hair loss that seamlessly integrates with the patient’s existing hair.

Diverse Types of Hair Transplants

1.Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): FUE is a minimally invasive and most popular technique involving the extraction of individual hair follicles from the donor area. These extracted follicles from the micro-motor punch technique are then carefully transplanted to the recipient site.

2.Direct Hair Implantation (DHI): DHI represents a refined version of FUE, where the extracted hair follicles are promptly implanted using a specialized tool. This technique enhances graft survival rates and expedites the healing process. This process is popular for vertex baldness.

3.Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT): This is an ancient technique and is generally not favored and practiced. Also known as the strip method, FUT entails removing a strip of scalp from the donor area. This strip is then meticulously dissected into individual follicular units, which are subsequently transplanted to the recipient area. However, this method may result in a noticeable linear scar.

Determining Suitability for Hair Transplants
The ideal candidates for hair transplants are individuals grappling with hair thinning or baldness due to genetic factors, hormonal shifts, medical conditions, or trauma. A video-trichoscopic examination of both donor and recipient areas prior to the transplant is mandatory. The suitability of the procedure depends on several factors, including the extent of hair loss, the availability of donor hair, and the overall health of the patient. It is important to note that Renew Clinic does not offer hair transplants for individuals under the age of 18.

The Perils of Unqualified Practitioners

Marketing of hair transplantation with keywords such as ‘scarless and painless’ is often discouraged. The procedure comes with bearable pain and scars depending upon individual wound healing. Here at Renew Clinic, we comply with the guidelines provided by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS) and BSHRS (British Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons).

While professionally executed hair transplants yield transformative and natural-looking results, entrusting unqualified practitioners can lead to a cascade of catastrophic outcomes that extend far beyond mere disappointment. These individuals, often devoid of the necessary training and experience, catapult the risk of a litany of distressing complications that can profoundly impact both the physical and psychological well-being of the individual seeking restoration. The dangers associated with unqualified hair transplant procedures are manifold and should be considered with utmost seriousness. Choosing to undergo a hair transplant from an unqualified source may result in an unnatural hairline, visible scarring, infections, graft failure, bleeding or anesthesia-related complications, or cyst formation.

It is evident that the risks associated with entrusting one’s hair transplant to an unqualified practitioner are far-reaching and can have long-lasting consequences. Opting for reputable clinics staffed by certified and seasoned hair transplant surgeons is paramount to ensure that the procedure is carried out with the highest level of professionalism, expertise, and patient safety in mind. The decision to undergo a hair transplant is an investment in one’s appearance and confidence, and this investment should be made wisely to avoid the myriad complications that can arise from unqualified procedures.
