Hair loss and hair transplant often generate a lot of questions. People want to know why they are suffering from hair loss, how hair transplants are done, the choices they have in treating hair loss, and whether or not hair transplant procedures are painful.
It is important for people who wish to undergo hair transplant to be educated about the procedure. That is why this article was written to provide helpful answers to the most commonly asked question related to hair loss and hair transplant.
What is the cause of hair loss?
There are many possible causes of hair loss. The most common of these is Androgenetic Alopecia. This condition is genetic. One can inherit AA from the father or the mother. When one has Androgenetic Alopecia, his or her hair follicles are shrunk by a testosterone derivative called dihydrotestosterone or DHT.
How is hair transplant done?
When doing hair transplant surgery, the doctor takes hair from the area of the patient’s head where hair is denser. This is then transplanted into the balding part of the scalp. The transplanted hair will grow naturally and permanently on the scalp.
I see hair in the shower and on my hair brush every day. Should I be worried?
Your hair has a cycle of growth where 100-150 hair follicles undergo a resting phase. This is why some hairs fall out every day. This will grow back in 3-4 months. It is a normal occurrence hence it is something that you should not be worried about. If you underwent hair transplant, you don’t need to worry about this either as your transplanted hair will also undergo this cycle like any normal hair.
Is hair transplant surgery painful?
Hair transplant surgeries are done under local anesthesia. The injection may create discomfort in patients with low tolerance to pain, but the whole surgery will not be more painful than a simple injection.
Can the donor hair be from someone else?
No. Your body will reject someone else’s hair.
These are just a few of the most commonly asked questions about hair transplant and their answers. If you are concerned by your thinning hair, hair transplant can help you improve your appearance and boost your confidence.
