Hair Transplant - How to Decide for or Against

Dr.MK AGARWALA, Dermatologist
Hair Transplant industry is the next big financial revolution happening in our country. The profits involved are large and the risk minimum as compared to most of the other organ transplant. It has made every Tom, Dick and Harry thinking that it is in their domain and when a complication happens such unlicensed clinics get the limelight as the recent death of a medical student post hair transplant in Chennai. The prospective patients should utilize their wisdom before making such an important decision. DO NOT FALL PREY TO CHEEKY HEADLINES AND BIG ADVERTISEMENTS.  The cause of hair fall needs to be established before proceeding for a hair fall therapy and it is easily done by a clinical examination alone most of the times. In a minority of cases, where clinical dilemma happens, a skin biopsy should be performed to prognosticate the success of hair transplant. Hair transplant is mainly performed for a condition called pattern baldness. There are certain things to understand before deciding for or against the procedure. Most of us would have done a basic research before thinking of the procedure. If you have done your research & understanding and are willing to step ahead with surgery, then the surgical options of FUE and FUT has to be discussed with your doctor. There are minor modifications done in these two techniques in an attempt to increase end results but technically they fall into FUE or FUT. You can take opinion from the hair transplant surgeon or there are various websites to make you understand the same. FUE and FUT are good standard protocols with independent merit and demerits; you should discuss this during your consultation. Coming back to pre-transplant decision stage, hair transplant is not a treatment to the core cause of male pattern baldness and you must understand this. The hairs from the back of your scalp are redistributed to the front and sides to cover those bald areas. The hairs from the back of the scalp have an advantage that they are not affected by hormones which cause hair loss in form of male pattern baldness. However they do have a natural life and will die out eventually. Second the hair follicles removed from the back will not re-grow. You may have apprehensions that the areas from which hair have been plucked will appear bald but this is not true as your hair transplant surgeon does the art that even after removing a few thousand follicles, the baldness is not evident. Third, the standard medications for baldness will still have to be continued for many reasons- to increase the life of transplanted hair, to preserve other hairs and the most obvious reason that hair transplant is not a cure for the underlying pathology. It is good to have a few sessions of platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment along with a hair transplant as they increase the likelihood of graft survival. Certain centers offer them in package and you can strike a bargain. Hair transplant centers have mushroomed in our country, so be careful in your choice of a hair transplant surgeon. It also involves good amount of cost, so discuss and understand all pros and cons. Having said all that, cases where hair transplant is needed and if done perfectly, final results are encouraging and make a huge difference to the personality. Complications in hair transplant can happen in any part of the operative procedure, during anesthesia or later but that is so for all other transplant operations as well. Discuss the same with your doctor.

Normally hair on the scalp and other parts of body becomes thicker and coarser. In middle age, hair growth can be seen on the ears of men and women develop the same on face at the time of menopause. This is due to change in endocrine pattern.Stages of hair growth-ANAGEN HAIR (Period of Active Growth)The stage when the growing is in process, the hair is called ‘Anagen’ hair. Anagen hair keeps on growing from two to five years. In Anagen hair, the cells of follicle grow, divide and are keratinized in order to make hair grow. Having keratin means that the base of the hair shaft is moist and soft and the rest of hair shaft above hair bulb is dark pigmented.CATAGEN HAIR (Period of Transition or Breakdown and Change)When the hair is under transition stage, which is from root to end, the hair is called ‘catagen’ hair. Catagen hair, begin transitional, live for about 7 to 15 days. During this transition phase, the growth activity of the hair stops. Growth of hair is not a continuous affair as some people think. Hair growing takes a resting phase during which no growth takes place and the roots of the resting hair become club-shaped. It is this condition that is called club hairs.TELOGEN HAIR (Resting Stage before Resumption Of Growth)Catagen hair live for some time and when they are in the state of rest without any change, they are called ‘Telogen’ hair. Telogen hair are also called club hair. They are in the state of rest for three to four months before they grow or are pushed from follicle due to growth of another hair or due to some harsh combing/ brushing or hard massaging/continuous drying of hair by hot hair-blower or in fight etc. All these are mechanical reasons.Factors that Influence the Hair GrowthAge: – Growth of hair is fastest from the age of fifteen to late twenties. The hair grows faster and the rate of growth slows down when the hair have grown to its maximum. There is no limit to maximum but some doctors are of the opinion that this limit is three feel which means that when the hair are over three feet long, the growth rate drops to half the former growth rate. Nervous and circulatory system: – The hair is affected by the state of the nervous system and circulatory system. This means that hair have a direct relation with functioning of the entire human organism, mind, sentiments, emotions and the body. Any such stimulation in the body by grief, emotions, etc. makes impact over the opulence of the nerve and blood supply to the head. If grief or emotions continue for some days, it affects the growth of hair.Chemicals & Drugs: – Chemical and drug reactions also affect the growth of hair. The coloring of hair and dyeing of hair are virtually exposure to chemical reactions and many persons who dye or color their hair have retarded hair growth or encounter falling of hair.Heredity: – The heredity/genes actually determine the hair density, growth and color of hair.Hormones: – Hormonal change is one of the reasons for growth of hair.Your Hair – An Index  to your Health….Our hair is not just ‘dead’ protein it is a pointer to what is happening deep inside our body and mind. Hair has more to it than what appears on the surface.  It says a lot more about us than what the stars foretell. The health of our hair and scalp provides us with insightful cues about a host of ‘latent’ health disorders.In addition, our hair, like our psyche, responds to both physical and emotional stressors, including underlying health deviations,  much before apparent clinical symptoms manifest.DRY, LIMP, THIN HAIR:-This may be a ‘cursor’ for hypothyroidism. In some cases, the ‘tell-tale’  sign is hair loss on the eyebrows, especially in the outer area of the eyebrow.SCALY  OR CRUSTY PATCHES ON THE SCALP:-This indicates psoriasis, a common skin disorder. It occurs when the skin for a ‘toss,’ sending out flawed signals that accelerate the turnover and growth of skin cells. The detection of psoriasis can help us prevent and treat more serious condition- especially psoriatic arthritis, or painful swelling of the joints with scaly psoriatic distress.OVERALL THINNING:-It’s customary to shed about 50-100 hairs a day. But, when hair appears to be coming out in ‘clumps,’ it’s time for action. Any extreme stress can be the reason for hair loss, liking losing a job can cause extreme hair loss. Likewise, about of flu or fever, illnesses like jaundice, typhoid and malaria can cause hair loss. Most importantly, diabetes and hypertension can also cause such hair loss, much before they may be clinically diagnosed. DRY, BRITTLE HAIR BREAKS EASILY:-This kind of hair loss can be a sign of autoimmune disorders, early onset diabetes and thyroid disease.

How Safe Is Your Hair Transplant Surgeon?

Dr. Sanjay Parashar, Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon
Hair transplant surgery has become one of the leading aesthetic procedures in men. It is due to the increasing concern of men for their baldness. With the increase in demand, there is an increase in people trying to provide that service. But who is the right person to do Hair transplantation? In most developed and regulated countries the law only permits qualified plastic surgeon to perform the procedure and in some a dermatologist is recognized to be equally qualified for the job. But in India, anybody and everybody is jumping on the bandwagon, with the greed of making quick cash. As for many people, ignorance is bliss, the common man generally not aware who is really wearing the white coat and what sort of risks complications they are exposing themselves to by trusting these unqualified surgeons. The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) is a global non-profit medical association and the leading authority on hair losstreatment and restoration with more than 1,200 members throughout 70 countriesworldwide. The ISHRS believes the following aspects of hair restoration surgeryshould only be performed by a licensed physician*:                                                                                                                                 Pre-operative diagnostic evaluation and consultation          Surgery planningSurgery execution including:- Injection of local anesthesia and sedation- Donor hair harvesting- Hairline design- Recipient site creationManagement of other patient medical issues andpossible adverse reactionsPost-operative careThe other elements of hair restoration i.e. Preparation of grafts and insertion of grafts can be performed by trained medical technicians under the supervision of qualified doctors.An essential safeguard to take is to know who will perform hair transplantation. The use of unlicensed technicians or doctors to perform aspects of hair restoration surgery is getting common. They might be trained hands, but they will not be able to diagnose issues and can lead to-misdiagnosis; failure to diagnose hair disorders and related systemic diseases; and the performance of unnecessary or ill-advised surgery all of which jeopardizes patient safety and outcomes. The biggest scare of all is an unlicensed technician and doctor is not be covered by malpractice insurance.Although no clear guidelines are available in India, The Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons, India is making all efforts to curb the use of unqualified personnel performing hair transplantation. Hair transplantation is a surgery that involves use medications such as lidocaine, adrenaline, sedatives and all these medications, if not injected in appropriate doses, or using the right method, can cause life-threatening risks to patients. Only a qualified plastic surgeon or dermatologist have adequate knowledge and skill to administer it in patients body and deal with the medical emergencies arising out of the use of such medications.Beyond that, any surgery should be performed in a licensed and accredited medical and surgical facility that has adequate infrastructure backup to take care of any possible emergencies that may arise during or after the procedure. Are these unlicensed Centers investing in patient safety – I doubt that.  Performing an invasive procedure in an unsterile environment without a facility for crash-cart may subject patients to serious risks of infection and other possible medical emergencies. Recently we had a case in India, where a patient died, due to infection. A lot of education is required for people who are contemplating hair transplantation surgery for themselves or their near and dear ones.Patients Should Ask These Questions:Who will evaluate my hair loss and recommend a course of treatment?  What is their education, training, licensure, and experience in treating hair loss?Who will be involved in performing my surgery,what role will they play, and what is their education, training, licensure, and experience performing hair restoration surgery?Will anyone not licensed by the state be making incisions or harvesting grafts during my surgery?  If so, please identify this person, explain their specific role and why they are legally permitted to perform it.Is everyone involved in my surgery covered by malpractice insurance?Although hair transplantation is considered low-medium risk procedures that are performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis,however like any other procedure a standard of care is necessary and safe surgery practices should be applied to ensure a safe outcome.In my experience of over two decades  as Plastic surgeon and performing hair transplantation, the best practices are the followingProcedure should be performed in an accredited and equipped medical center with proper sterility and surgery protocolsOnly a team of qualified and licensed doctors and technicians who work under direct supervisionPatient to be evaluated clinically and medically thoroughly to ensure they are ideal candidates and healthy to undergo the procedure.All medications including local anesthesia are administered by qualified doctors after checking the content and expiry dates and in a controlled manner.Continuous monitoring of the patient is mandatory by using pulse oximetry to measure oxygen levels throughout the procedure and blood pressure monitoring.FUT i.e.  strip harvesting is performed by a surgeon qualified in managing scalp woundsFUE i.e. Is follicular harvesting is performed either by a surgeon, dermatologist or a qualified allopathic medical doctor.Site making is performed by the licensed doctorsHair grafting is performed by qualified and trained medical Technicians under direct supervision of the doctorsPatients discharged after proper monitoring and assessment by the senior qualified doctorRegular follow-up protocol is undertaken to ensure the safe and effective outcome of the procedure.Dr. Sanjay Parashar

Hair Transplant

Dr. Parthasarathi Dutta Roy, Dermatologist
Hair transplantation is a tactful procedure for transferring normal hair from external side. Irrespective of all genders this awesome treatment fully eradicates baldness which is medically called alopecia. Instead of preventing baldness, hair transplantation can rectify lost hair due to burn or trauma and can give attractive shape of eyebrows. In this therapy two sites plays important role simultaneously- donor site and recipient site.Steps of Hair Transplant:Categorically hair is transplanted in two ways like FUE and FUT. Very interestingly hairs are grafted from the donor’s permanent zones. Before developing the FUE and FUT it should be known what the permanent zones are? Basically the back and two sides of the head are such places from where hairs never shed out and remain throughout the lifespan.FUE: FUE is the abbreviated form of Follicular Unit Extraction. It is the modern procedure of hair transplantation in where automated drilling machine is applied for grafting each hair follicle. Comparing to other hair restoration method FUE is quite fast and less painful technique. A small needle like scalpel is used to perforate the follicular regions. After accomplishing FUE both the donor and recipient don’t face visible scars or polka dots like spots.FUT: The full form of FUT is Follicular Unit Transplantation. It is quite older technique than FUE. In this method, a small strip of hair is cut out from permanent region. Though it is old method but FUT provides natural looks by curing thinning hair problem. So FUT is perfect and successful hair transplantation therapy for women without creating any visible scars.Advantages of Hair Transplant:As a whole hair transplantations like FUE and FUT provide lots of benefits. Once done, baldness never gets scope to occupy the head and patients enjoy the dense hair.

A Beginner's Guide to Hair Transplants

Dr. Abhishek Pilani, Dermatologist
What is Hair transplant?Hair transplantation is a painless scarless technique that moves individual hair follicles from the posterior part of the scalp  the'donor site' to a bald or balding part of the scalp known as the 'recipient site'. It restores your naturally growing hair for life.Today hair restoration surgery is a one day out-patient procedure requiring only local anesthesiaHair transplants  are remarkable and provide a very natural result  when performed by an  experienced surgeon who must either be a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon. These days  the procedure  is commonly performed by quacks. There should be awareness amongst the patients regarding who the treating doctor is.“Getting a hair transplant is done by Dental Surgeons/ Homeopaths / Technicians is like ordering Chinese food in a south Indian restaurant”Is it expensive?No. With low pricing and multiple payment options these days even lower middle class can even afford the procedure.   How long does the procedure take ?How many sittings does it take for the procedure?It depends on the total number of hair follicles required on the recipient site.Traditionally, there are up to approximately 7000-8000 follicular units that can be harvested for transplant.  That does not mean that all of these should be done in one session or at all. This depends on a number of factors including age and how thick or dense the donor hair is.   Modern  hairline design requires careful study of and planning for an individual patient to attain a natural result.  Sometimes it is "safer" to break this up into 2 or more sessions.How long does it take to see visible results?New hair growth will only break through the skin at three to four months after the procedure.However, it will take at least six to eight months for the new hair to make any significant cosmetic difference to your appearance. Why Hair transplant  surgery gaining mileage in India?Hair loss affects men and women, but most patients ignore the case and learn to live with it. This is because there is a general perception that hair loss or baldness is non-curable. However, things are changing now. New methods of hair loss treatments and hair restoration surgeries are gaining popularity, offering a helping hand to patients who want to regain their youthful appearance.Hair transplant and hair restoration techniques are gaining wider acceptance. Thanks to the technological advancements in this sector.Despite this popularity, hair experts think that hair replacement techniques have not reached to the deserving community. This is because of lack of awareness about the procedure and concerns over the price. Also, in most cases patients are notable to evaluate whether they are the prospective candidates for hair transplants.
