For those looking for a fine hair transplantation, Dr. Saraswat’s Skin and Hair Clinics in Gangtok is just the place for you.
Hair transplantation is a procedure in which a surgeon transplants hair follicles from one part of the head to another part where the hair is thinning or receding.
Types of Hair Transplantation Surgery:
There are two main methods widely in use to remove the grafts – Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). It is important to know the difference between the two before making a choice.
In FUT, a strip of tissues from the back of the head is removed, from which the hair follicies will be extracted. These hair follicies are harvested from the strip before individually transplanting them to the recipient area.
The FUE involves extracting each follicular unit directly from the scalp, on a random basis, which would then be transplanted to the recipient area.
Pain and Gain:
Follicular Unit Transplantation requires a strip of tissues to be removed, as a result of which, some patients feel discomfort due to the likely swelling in that area. Having said that, it has a manageable recovery period and pain medication can be prescribed by the physician if needed.
The pricing is on a per-graft basis. It means that one pays only for what one needs, and not more.
Since the FUE procedure involves extracting individual follicular units, it requires no stitches, and therefore, no linear scar to heal. While on one hand, it gives the procedure an advantage over the traditional FUT, it also makes it a little costlier than the FUT.
Choosing a Method:
Based on the type of hair loss, and the quality and quantity of your donor hair, your physician can help you determine which method is best suited for you. Schedule a consultation today.
