Many people lose hair due to conditions such as stress, surgery, genetics, or male pattern baldness. Men are not the only ones who are affected by severe hair loss. Women are also predisposed to this condition.
Proven Hair Restoration that Stands the Test of Time
Are you one of those people who is suffering from hair loss? Is your head going bald in a few places? If you answer “yes” to these questions, then you may benefit from consulting with Dr. Nayyar at Dermaclinique to learn about the top options in hair restoration St. Petersburg and Tampa have to offer.
What is an FUT Hair Transplant?
Follicular unit transplantation is a hair restoration technique where your hair is transplanted in follicular units. These small units allow Dr. Nayyar to transplant thousands of grafts in a single session. The FUT hair transplant technique is also known as strip procedure, as it involves removing an entire strip of hair from the donor site on your head. This technique maximizes the cosmetic impact of the procedure. The results of this procedure will mimic natural hair growth and are undetectable as a transplant. It is a proven technique in hair restoration surgery.
In the FUT hair transplant technique, Dr. Nayyar will surgically excise a strip of scalp from your head from the donor site using microscopic dissection. The donor site is the area on your head where the hair is more resistant to balding. Using precise microscopic dissection, the donor strip containing the hair follicles is divided into grafts consisting of one or two follicles each. Dr. Nayyar will then make incisions on your scalp at the treated site, and she will insert the follicular graft units.
What Can I Expect During and After the Procedure?
The FUT hair transplant surgery is done under local anesthesia. Dr. Nayyar will use lidocaine to numb your scalp, both in the treated site as well as the donor site. Once the donor strip is removed from the donor site, Dr. Nayyar will suture the area from where the piece of hair tissue was removed. After the whole procedure, the donor area is dressed with bandages to avoid any infection. Dr. Nayyar will also use a holding solution to allow the hair replacement follicles to survive after transplantation.
A small amount of symptoms after every surgery is normal. You may experience soreness and pain in your scalp once the anesthesia wears off. Dr. Nayyar will prescribe painkillers for such pain. She will also give post-operative care instructions to take care of the treated area.
Find out if FUT Hair Transplantation is Right for You
During your consultation with Dr. Nayyar, she will check your medical history, your present medications and allergies to determine whether you are the right candidate for this procedure. In order to ensure a safe hair replacement surgery without any severe side effects, make sure that you inform Dr. Nayyar of any present medical condition that may adversely affect your health.
- You are eligible for FUT hair transplant if you have a stable supply of hair in the donor’s area. Without enough hair, this procedure will fail to yield results.
- You are not an eligible candidate if you are suffering from multiple medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, hypertension, or heart problems.
- Dr. Nayyar will suggest this surgery if you have lost hair due to trauma such as burns, or cosmetic procedures such as a facelift. But if you have been diagnosed with a condition which prevents natural hair growth, then FUT hair transplant treatment may not be the best solution for you.
