In the process individual’s own hair are redistributed over the remaining portion of the scalp. Hair follicles are surgically removed from the back of the scalp and then the same are implanted in the bald areas of the scalp. This helps in equal distribution of hair follicles and results in hair restoration.
There are various techniques that are used for the transplantation process. The traditional methods are strip grafting, slit grafting, punch grafting, and mini grafting. Over the period of time the methods became ultra-refined to offer better results. Some of the latest methods used are follicular unit transplantation (FUT), follicular unit extraction (FUE), and dense packing.
The FUT is a traditional technique that is commonly known as strip technique. In the process a thin strip is extracted from the back of the scalp and is then dissected into tiny grafts after examining it under a series of dissecting microscopes. The use of technically advanced microscopes has enables surgeons to visualize hair follicles under high magnification. Thereafter tiny incisions are made in the bald area where the dissected grafts are implanted. In the process tiny grafts are placed over the entire region where hair restoration is required. The method is effective when a larger portion of scalp has to be covered.
The FUE method involves extracting of hair follicles that are directly implanted into the incised holes of the bald areas. In the process first the follicular units are extracted from the back of the scalp. Thereafter the grafts are implanted into the bald areas without any dissection. These grafts are already so small that like the FUT these do not require any kind of dissection. The FUE method is more effective when a smaller portion of the head has to be covered.
Dense packing is a recently introduced method that almost similar to the traditional method of FUT. This process involves the use of skinny grafts that are produced by cutting away the extra portion of the skin tissue. These tiny grafts are then placed on the bald area closer to each other.
There are some cosmetic surgeons who perform both the transplantation techniques to yield better results. A combination of both can also work wondrous as an ideal hair loss treatment. Apart from this a combination of follicular unit transplantation and dense packing is also used in many cases. This combination of methods is popularly known as mega-sessions that gives unbelievable result in just one surgical process.
