Long Hair Transplant

One of the most prevalent fears heard about hair transplantation is about its survival and resilience to last. People who are considering going for hair transplantation often mention their concern and reservation regarding the success rate and duration of life the transplanted hair have. It is not surprising to see patients having such queries because there have been many efforts to find a viable solution for excessive hair loss but there was little that could actually be relied upon. But the good news is, things have drastically turned around towards more hopeful and assuring side.

There are various techniques which are followed to restore the normal growth of transplanted hair and make them look like original. Long hair surgical technique is a conventional and reliable procedure employed to allow the bald area become full of hair again. Under this technique, an incision of about few cm in made to peel off a part of persons scalp from the hair dominant donor area with the help of skin hooks. The peeled graft contains several hairs which are then transplanted to the hair barren recipient site of the scalp. Extensive care is required while performing this procedure otherwise hair or scalp may be damaged. The scar can easily be hidden from the hair residing above the incision. Surgeons makes sure that this technique is performed is the best possible way. The four factors taken into account when deciding recipient are; size, direction, angel and type of hair.

The way this surgery is performed in ILHT is remarkable with only 0-0.4% chances of extracted hair being damaged. Otherwise the hair remains in good shape and non-distressed. The survival rate of transplanted hair is 100% using long hair technique if it is done the right way. The direction of the hair line is kept in mind during the surgery so that new hairs are placed at right place. Along with this, the density of the hair is also examined well by the practitioner to give it a natural look. The scar rendered by incision heals over time. Proper medication is prescribed after the surgery with post-op instructions. Normally, the recovery period takes about two months. Since the survival rate of hair is 100% in most cases with this technique, the hair adjust to the normal course of growth faster. The average rate of growth is half an inch every month initially.
