Hair transplant methods
Hair is one of the main features in attracting people. There are many factors involved in thickening hair. The three main factors in this area are genetics, various hormones of the body and the age of the person. In some families, hair loss is inherited to children. Hormonal changes can also lead to hair loss. Also, as people age, the hair follicles become damaged and hair loss starts. With the advancement of science in recent years, the problem of baldness and hair loss has been treated and several ways have been introduced to tackle this problem.
There are various methods of Hair Transplant now that have positive results for the person. Here is a summary of the most popular hair transplant methods.
Why Hair Transplant?
Usually, people with baldness are treated with medication, shampoos, or complementary medicines. But if these methods do not work (which are usually not effective), another option is to use hair transplant methods. In general, the basic format of these methods is the same. Usually, your doctor will remove healthy and strong follicles from areas of the skin that have thicker hair and attach them to the shorter and thinner areas.
Hairs transplant can be done in different areas of the body such as the head, eyebrows and even the beard of men. Usually the hair transplant is permanent and the hair will grow naturally. The new hair will no longer fall out, and hair transplant is usually performed by a specialist.
Various hair transplant methods
There are various methods and models for hair transplantation that usually one of them is selected as the main treatment according to the patient’s condition.
FIT, one of the most common methods of hair transplant
Follicular Isolation Transplantation or FIT, is one of the most common methods of hair transplant. In this way, the hair follicles are actually cut into multiple batches or individually by means of what is called holder. These follicles are removed from dense areas and re-implanted in less dense areas. This method of hair transplant may take from one to several sessions depending on the amount of follicles required.
FIT method is usually painless, but local anesthesia can be used to relieve discomfort. This method is usually used for people who have only a small part of the skin with hair loss. This method is also commonly used for people who cannot remove large parts of their skin for various reasons. Like other hair transplant methods, after this method usually because of the entering shock to transplanted hairs, those will be shed and after a short period time, the hair begins to grow back to normal.
• FUT, One of the popular methods
Another method of hair transplant in Iran which is usually operated by many specialists is the Follicular Unit Transplant or FUT method. In this method, small pieces of skin are cut from the tissue that has thick hairs, and by using different tools, the hair follicles of these skin patches are separated and small units are created. These hair units or strips are then carefully placed into circular incisions in the scalp areas affected by hair loss to replace natural hair growth. One of the advantages of FUT method is that the scars created are less than other methods. Also the location of new hair is not visible and the hair is completely natural.
• SUT, One of the newest methods
Among the methods of hair transplantation, SUT type hair transplantation is a newer method. In this method, advanced devices usually carry out follicles from the skin and implant them elsewhere and the physician is only responsible for monitoring this process. The SUT method is almost similar to the FIT method, with the only major difference being that in the SUT method hair follicles are harvested with a specific device.
In this method, the follicles are separated from the dense portions of the individual’s hair and are rapidly frozen. Freezing in this way will keep the follicles healthy until transplant operation. Usually only one percent of the follicles implanted in this method are destroyed and the rest remain completely healthy.
The main advantage of the SUT model is that the device performs very accurately and the speed of operation is very high, with about 10,000 different hair follicles being implanted at each session. Because of this, all the required follicles will be implanted in a single session in the SUT method.
