Hair loss is one of the most embarrassing phases almost every man suffers through. Hair loss is also difficult to get rid off, as it is not caused by one factor. Instead, there are numerous factors that can single handedly, or in conjunction with each other, lead to hair fall.

If you are looking for a hair loss solution to keep your shiny hair locks intact for a long time, then you should also be vary of a few risk factors that can lead to hair loss. Some of the most common factors that lead to hair fall in men and women are:

Hereditary: Male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness


Medical conditions

Medical conditions: Conditions like Alopecia Areata, or infections like ringworm can also cause unwanted hair loss.

Medications: Chemotherapy for cancer incorporates substances that often lead to hair fall. Drugs used for depression, heart problems, gout, high blood pressure or arthritis can also lead to hair loss as a side effect.


Traumatic event

Traumatic event: Experiencing physical or emotional shock can also lead to undue hair loss.

Hairstyle preferences: Using hot elements to style hair can damage hair strands. Certain restrictive hairstyles like ponytail or deadlocks can also lead to hair fall.

In terms of getting your hair back, the course of action your doctor would undertake, or recommend, will depend on the cause of your hair loss. However, after dealing with the underlying cause there is a chance that the hair you have lost won’t grow back on their own. In those cases opting for hair regrowth treatments is usually the go to route, and hair transplantation is the most popular surgical procedure that people opt for to get their hair back.

Process of Hair Transplantation:

Hair transplant is one of the most popular options for people who are looking to curb their hair loss once and for all. Hair transplantation involves grafting donor hair follicles to the bald areas of the head. The donor hair follicles are usually picked out from the back of the head or from the temples (either side of the head). These regions seldom experience any kind of hair loss, and thus are the most appropriate places for taking out donor hair follicles. The extent of your hair loss will ultimately decide the number of hair follicles that you would require to get a desired look. And, the number of hair grafts usually decides the overall cost of the procedure. With advancement in medical science, hair transplantation has also improved by incorporating new techniques and procedures. There are two main methods of hair transplantation: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT).

Which is better, FUE or FUT?

Which is better, FUE or FUT?

In essence, both of them are similar, and incorporate transplantation of hair grafts and hair follicles. But in practice, the final results may vary on a number of very specific things. FUT is one of the most widely used hair transplantation techniques in the world and it offers great results, if the treatment is performed by an experienced professional. FUE is also gaining its fair share of popularity and rapport amongst the available hair regrowth procedures. FUE overcomes the main flaw in FUT, and provides for hair regrowth, which looks natural and allows for greater customization of hairstyles.

FUT incorporates strips of hair follicles that are extracted from the back of the head. After taking the strip out of the donor site, top and bottom layers of the scalp are sutured together. On the other hand, under FUE a punch device is used to extract individual grafts from the donor site.

Scarring is the biggest difference between FUE and FUT. FUE does lead to minor circular scarring as the donor grafts or follicles are extracted in a scattered pattern. Whereas, FUT does leave a linear scar on the donor site which will be visible after healing.

FUE, as a hair transplant procedure, is a bit more complex than FUT. But it does lead to better results and a much more natural look, and after healing and hair regrowth FUE also allows people to get any sort of hair style they want, even buzz cuts. These are some of the reasons why FUE has become the preferred choice amongst people who are looking to get their hair back.

FUE Hair Transplant Procedure

FUE Hair Transplant Procedure:

The day of the hair transplantation is crucial, and will decide whether the hair grafts will grow into hairs or not. During intra and post operative periods, the donor hair grafts are subjected to many stresses, any of which can result in necrosis. Common stresses that a doctor has to vary are: Dehydration, mechanical trauma, hypoxia, lactic acid accumulation, depletion of ATP, cold injury and ischaemia reperfusion injury.

Hair grafts alone decide the success rate of FUE hair transplant. Keeping these grafts alive is a daunting task and requires proper medical vigilance and expertise. Hence it is a must that before opting for a clinic, first you check their credentials, and before opting for a hair transplant you first look for a doctor with the proper skill-set and expertise.

Activities You Can Do During FUE:

FUE is a minimally invasive procedure and is done under local anaesthesia, meaning that clients are awake most of the time during the whole of the transplantation process. Despite a team of professionals, the process can take somewhere between 6-8 hours. Hence, clients are essentially stuck to the operating bed for the whole day. According to an anonymous survey, following are some of the most popular things people like to do during the procedure:

  • Listening to music
  • Watching TV shows, or movies
  • Video/ phone calls
  • Reading

Newly implanted hair grafts are fragile and require adequate care to fully take root. Thus, for a few days following the procedure it is advised to take it easy and not work out excessively. It is also advised to take extra care while washing scalp, and wearing head wear, or helmets. With proper precautions, you can resume working, shopping, driving, etc, the very next day.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
