Common Hair Transplantation Procedures Which Help With Hair Loss  

A hair transplantation procedure is a common way for the concerned individual to take action and replace those coveted locks of hair which were lost.

There are two common forms of hair transplantation procedures. One is a more timely solution for hair loss but less invasive whereas the other provides a quicker solution but involves surgery in order to do so. Prior to choosing one procedure over the other, it is important to discuss the options with a medical health professional so that one can make the best choice possible.

Micro-Hair Transplant Procedures

One type of common hair transplantation procedure is the micro-hair transplant procedure. This procedure involves individual micrograft restoration where hair is inserted little by little into one’s scalp. The hair is obtained by taking the strands from other areas on the head. The transplanted hair will eventually fall out and then be replaced by new hair. This procedure is one which is usually performed on an outpatient basis. However, the transplant patient will need to attend a number of sessions in order for the entire micro-hair transplant procedure to be fully completed.

Micro-hair transplant procedures are beneficial for those who do not need to have large quantities of hair replaced since it is a time consuming procedure due to the small quantity strand replacement. This procedure is usually performed with local anesthesia provided so as to prevent any pain from being felt by the patient.

Scalp Flap Surgery

A more intensive type of hair transplantation procedure is scalp flap surgery. Scalp flap surgery is often chosen by those individuals who have experienced a great deal of hair loss and wish to have their hair transplant procedure done quickly. As opposed to micro-hair transplant procedures, scalp flap surgery requires a hospital visit and general anesthesia. With this procedure, the surgeons will take the flap of scalp hair located next to the sparse area and surgically move the flap to cover the bald area. This is done in a few different stages over a couple of weeks until the desired result is reached and the flap is secured with sutures.

The recovery time for scalp flap surgery is longer than it would be with micro-hair transplant procedures. Most patients are given antibiotics and pain medications to aid in their recovery. It is important to note that scalp flap surgery does not stop future hair loss but it does provide a good solution to remedying past episodes of hair loss.
