Hair form an integral part of the identity of a person, and irrespective of gender, are a source of vanity as well. This is why hair loss has a huge psychological impact and affects self-esteem and sense of identity.
The different causes of hair loss are ageing, hormonal changes, family history and most commonly, a combination of all these factors. When hair loss starts at an early age, the baldness is also seen to be more severe. Loss of hair increases the apparent age, which has a negative social impact and can even lead to depression.
Hair restoration involves re-establishing normal hair density to bring back a natural, youthful appearance. The only effective and reliable method of hair restoration is hair transplant surgery.
Hair Transplant- Procedure
Hair Transplant surgery in Delhi is performed at SCULPT Aesthetic and Cosmetic Clinic by renowned cosmetic and plastic surgeon Dr. Vivek Kumar. It is a meticulous procedure requiring expertise and finesse. The surgery involves:
- Collection of donor hair grafts: Hair growing at the back and sides of the head are genetically programmed to keep growing for the entire lifetime; so these hair are ideal for re-location to the bald spots. Donor grafts are collected from very thin strips of skin, containing follicular units of 1 to 3 hair.
- Creation of recipient sites: In the area of hair loss, very small slits are made into the skin.
- Placement of grafts: Each donor graft is carefully placed into each recipient site. This process can take several hours.
The transplanted hair starts growing naturally after a period of 3-4 months. Since the hair are inherently programmed, they continue to grow as they would at the donor site.
