What do the different levels of surgeons mean?

Treatment packages are mainly leveled based on the ranking of surgeons (according to the number of annual surgeries, years of experience, educational and experimental records, the rate of successful surgeries and the percentage of patients’ satisfaction) and the hospital/clinic where the surgery is performed.

 As an example, level 1 surgeons are Iranian brand doctors who are famous inside and outside the country and are mainly observed by international patients on social networks. It should be noted that all the doctors and surgeons that cooperate with Nora Health Tour are board certified and work in prominent hospitals that are licensed to accept international patients and comply with the standards of Nora Health Tour medical team.

We all know what an important role hair plays in the beauty of our appearance and attractiveness. If you look around a little, you will realize how beautiful and healthy hair can increase people’s self-confidence and popularity. Therefore, hair care should be one of the necessities of every person’s daily life and should not be neglected. Most people have experienced hair loss in their lifetime and have resorted to a variety of home remedies, pills, solutions, shampoos and medications to treat it; In the meantime, some people may have temporarily achieved less satisfactory results. The only way to permanently treat hair loss and repair its growth line for men and women who suffer from baldness, severe hair loss and even thinning is “hair transplantation”. Hair transplantation is a safe way to restore your hair. Hair loss and baldness (baldness) is a major concern for more than half of the world’s population, a concern that can be addressed with hair transplants.

In the past years, many experiences and methods for hair transplantation have been tested, and finally today, Natural hair transplantation is a cosmetic activity that involves using new technology, smaller batches of hair called micrografts are used for hair transplantation, which has resulted in satisfactory and natural-looking results. And something that until recently was even hard to imagine, today it has become one of the outpatient and very light surgeries, which is based on healthy harvesting of a person’s hair roots and implanting them in the desired areas. As a result, these are important reasons for choosing a hair transplant method among other methods of treating hair loss. The area from which the follicles are removed is called the “hair bank” and the hairless areas where the follicles are located are called the “recipient” area.

An issue that receives special attention in hair transplantation is the hair growth line. The most important issue in the beauty of any person is the hair growth line on the forehead, which becomes longer over time and with age. This problem, even with having good and young skin, can have a great impact on the appearance of a person, especially men, and the results of hair transplantation in a young person will surprise him.

Hair transplantation is done in different ways and the best method can be chosen from them. Hair transplants can take four to eight hours a day, and in some cases two days, depending on the number of hairs implanted. Most clients are conscious during surgery and only anesthesia is applied to their scalp. Surgery begins with the removal of healthy hair by a dermatologist. To normalize hair transplantation, a dermatologist can work in two ways; in the first method, the surgeon cuts a strip of scalp with healthy hair, and in the second method, the hair is removed on each hair separately. The time of the second method is longer; instead, it prevents tapeworms from forming on the scalp. Before the transplant, the technicians remove the hair and prepare the scalp surgeon for the transplant. After the hair transplant is complete, the scalp will be bandaged and you will be given home care instructions.

Currently, the only way to treat and repair lost hair is to use natural hair transplants, which can be done in different areas, including the head, eyebrows, beard and mustache, eyelashes and scars.

Good Candidate for Hair Transplant

All men and women can be good candidates for natural hair transplants; just note two points:

  • There must be enough healthy hair in the hair bank to transplant the hair to the recipient.
  • Your hair has the ability to grow in the thinned part of the scalp.

But in general, people with the following conditions can have hair transplant surgery in consultation with a doctor:

  • Hair loss is not due to medication, stress or medical treatment.
  • Non-surgical treatments have not helped to eliminate hair loss.
  • They suffer from baldness or thinning hair.
  • They have lost part of their hair due to damage to the scalp.
  • They are in perfect physical health and have realistic expectations of the outcome of the surgery.

Although there is no set age for hair transplants, since hair loss occurs and persists in many men in their twenties, it is recommended that hair transplants not be performed until the age of 25 or even 30.

Natural hair transplant time in young people

The exact time for hair transplantation can not be determined and considered because it varies from person to person. Most people do this when they have shed enough of their hair but are not yet completely bald. According to experts, it is better for a person to have a hair transplant when he is between the ages of 25 and 45 and is socially active and wants to be active in work as well as in life and social relationships.

If the process of thinning hair and baldness begins in late adolescence and early twenties, it can be very likely to be predicted that this person will suffer from severe and complete baldness. However, if this happens in the third and fourth decades of life, it can be imagined that a person will not suffer from extensive and severe hair loss. All of these factors play a role in deciding whether or not to have a hair transplant in a hair transplant applicant. You are the best person to judge this because you know better than anyone else what your hair is like and whether you need a hair transplant.

Choosing a hair transplant method

Fortunately, different methods are available for hair transplants, and the doctor, based on the examinations and examinations he performs in the consultation sessions, decides which method is more suitable for your condition and ideal results. The point to note is that almost all hair transplants are performed with the least amount of invasiveness and the chances of complications are very low. The general nature of the methods is similar in that it involves removing healthy follicles from the donation area and transplanting them into the recipient area, but the main difference is in the method and technique of graft removal. But in general, people who are in perfect health, not having acute medical problems, not smoking regularly, not having severe allergies, and not suffering from serious skin and nerve problems, can expect good results for themselves from this surgery.

One of the most important decisions a patient has to make is which hair transplant to do: FIT or FUE.

  • Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)/ also known as Follicular Unit Strip surgery (FUSS): In this procedure, a band-shaped incision is made in the back of the head to allow the follicles to be removed, and then this area is sutured. In the next step, the follicles are removed under a microscope with great precision to be implanted in the empty parts of the head or the recipient area. Finally, the head is bandaged to protect both the donor and recipient areas during the recovery period. A strip cut on the back of the head can lead to scarring, which is covered by the remaining hair, and there are several treatments available to remove this line.

Advantages of FUT/FUSS method

  • High graft harvesting speed,
  • Lower cost compared to other methods,
  • Shorter exposure time of grafts and reduction of the possibility of damage to them,
  • Reduction of surgical error due to the method of graft extraction process,
  • Selection of follicles removed from the strongest site among the strongest grafts.

Disadvantages of the FUT/FUSS method

  • Remaining tape band at the site of harvest,
  • Aggressive action and long recovery period,
  • Need for more careful care because the wound is larger,
  • Prohibition of strenuous sports and physical activities for at least two months after planting,
  • Impossibility of FUT implantation for people with stiff scalp.
  • Impossibility of removal from grafts on the lower neck, body hair or facial hair.
  • Unsuitable for athletes and those with a history of flesh sores.

 

  • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)/ also known as Follicular Isolation Technique (FIT): FUE method is known as single follicle extraction or single follicle extraction. Usually, most people with thinning hair can be a very good option to use this method. Thus, in most cases, dermatologists recommend the FUE method for hair transplantation. In Follicular Unit Extraction, a large, thin strip of donor area tissue (hair bank) is removed from the back and sides of the scalp, and individual follicular units are removed from the strip under a stereo microscope. The edges of the wound are then closed and a scar, usually thin, remains. FUE hair transplant method is the standard method for hair removal in hair transplantation, where the maximum amount of hair can be removed in one session and implanted in the bald area of the patient. In FUE hair transplantation, hair loss is low and over 80 to 90% of the removed hair should grow in the future.

Advantages of FUE/FIT method

The most important advantage of FUE/FIT hair transplantation is that it is minimally invasive and the single removal of the follicles does not involve any wounds or stitches, and therefore, the repair and healing process will be faster. But extracting each unit of follicle and making very small holes is time consuming and requires the experience and skill of a doctor, and since the follicles stay out of the body for a longer time, they are more likely to be damaged.

  1. Shorter recovery period than FUT method,
  2. No pain and discomfort for applicants,
  3. No heavy bleeding, scars and no need for stitches,
  4. Suitable for people with a history of flesh sores or scalp that is not very flexible.
  5. Possibility of harvesting thinner grafts for planting in the growth line,
  6. Possibility to remove body hair,
  7. Ability to do light sports activities a few days after surgery.

Disadvantages of the FUE/ FIT method

  1. Low graft harvesting speed,
  2. Requires high precision and skill to prevent graft damage.
  3. Fewer grafts taken in one session,
  4. Prolonging the time it takes for grafts to leave the body and increasing the likelihood of injury,
  5. Impossibility of removing grafts from close quarters (need for a larger hair bank),
  6. Need more sessions to achieve high densities.

Details about the FUT and FUE methods

FUT hair transplants are more beautiful and effective than FIT hair transplants, but are slightly heavier than FIT hair transplants. Hair transplants for different hair loss patterns are possible according to the diagnosis of a specialist.

The FUT procedure is performed in a session under the supervision of a hair transplant and beauty specialist. Before the operation, it is recommended that the patient stop smoking any medications (even aspirin and pills that do not require a doctor’s prescription) and massage the scalp. The surgeon cuts the hair on the part of the head that is to be the donor section to make it easier to access. When the anesthetic works, the surgeon begins removing strips from the hair follicles and does so from behind a magnifying glass because the follicles must be separated for transplantation. The difference between the FUE methods occurs at this stage. The surgeon removes each follicle separately instead of removing a strip of skin. As a result, the FUE method is far less aggressive than the FUT method.

In the next stage, the recipient section is anesthetized and the follicular units are implanted in a triangular shape, ie first one hair, then two hairs, three and four hairs. This triangular shape gives a natural state to hair density and is very similar to the shape of natural hair growth. Tiny needles are used to implant the follicles, and then the implanted follicles allow natural hair to grow back in the bald area.

About 4,000 hair follicles are implanted in one hair transplant session. Multiple surgical sessions may be needed to achieve the best results. In the first surgery session, the follicles are implanted at longer distances to maximize blood flow and perform a successful transplant. Larger areas will be covered in subsequent surgical sessions, as well as gaps and gaps.

After FUT surgery, you may feel pain and tenderness in any area of ​​the donor and recipient. Swelling and discomfort may also be present. The surgeon will tell you the best way to deal with the pain.

As mentioned, the FUE method is essentially the same as the FUT‌ method, except that the method of extracting hair follicles is different. FUT is significantly more popular than FUE, but both methods can yield good results, which can increase hair density to close to 0-30 follicular units per square centimeter.

Pre-Operative Care of Hair Transplantation

It is very important to follow the instructions given by the doctor before hair transplantation, because it has a direct impact on the success of surgery results. Among the preoperative care, the following can be mentioned:

  1. Blood thinners such as aspirin, Gelofen and Novafen should be avoided for at least ten days before surgery. Because these drugs increase the chance of bleeding during and after surgery.
  2. Smoking and alcohol consumption should be avoided for one to two weeks before surgery.
  3. Take a shower on the day of surgery, the hair should be completely clean and no hair conditioners such as gels or tufts should be used.
  4. Tests prescribed by a doctor must be performed to determine the health of the physical condition.
  5. Have a light and healthy meal the night before surgery, and eat breakfast if surgery is not needed on the day of surgery.

Necessary Tests before Hair Transplantation

Before hair transplantation, it is necessary to test certain factors in the blood to insure that there is no problem for the applicants during or after the transplant. Anemia, the time of blood clotting, the presence or absence of active infection in the body and are among these important factors. CBC, PT, PTT, HIV (IgG, IgM, HBS (IgG, IgM), and other tests necessary according to doctor diagnosis are considered before natural hair implants.

Hair Transplantation Steps

It is true that there are different techniques for hair transplantation, but in the end, the nature and generality of all methods are the same, and the only thing that distinguishes the methods is how the follicles are removed. Hair transplantation is done in three steps:

1. Removal or Extraction of Follicles

First, local anesthesia is injected, and after a few minutes of anesthesia, healthy follicles are removed from the hair bank (back or sides of the head). The follicle can be removed as a unit, in which each unit of the follicle is removed manually or using a punch or other tool, or as a strip that is cut into a strip at the back of the head to allow removal. Provide follicles.

2. Preparation and Maintenance of Follicles

After the follicles are removed under a microscope, the grafts are kept in solution to prepare for transplantation into the recipient area. This keeps the follicles healthy until the transplant and removes extra tissue from the follicle.

3. Implantation of Grafts

Finally, the grafts are implanted by making very small holes in the designated areas. The diameter of the holes is very small and no injuries will be caused. Finally, the incisions are sutured and a bandage is placed over the head to protect the sutures and surgical sites. At the end, a leaflet containing instructions and care after hair transplantation will be provided to you.

Post-Operative Care of Hair Transplantation

The most important stage of hair transplantation is the recovery period and the care that must be observed by the person, and in fact, the role of the person as the main factor in the success of surgery results begins. Observing these points, in addition to accelerating the recovery process, also prevents possible complications and we will see excellent and natural results. Some post-transplant hair care includes:

  1. It is perfectly normal for the surgical site to be swollen or red for a few days, and the use of ice packs can help reduce inflammation. Note that the compress should not be placed directly on the scalp and the compress should be placed on the forehead for twenty minutes.
  2. Rest after surgery is very important, it is recommended to stay at home for a week and avoid strenuous physical activity. When sleeping, be sure to put one or two pillows under your head to avoid pressure on the stitches and grafts and keep your head as high as you can.
  3. After a hair transplant, have a nutritious diet containing vitamins and minerals to help speed up the healing process.
  4. Avoid taking blood-thinning medications that increase bleeding, and instead take antibiotics prescribed to prevent infection in a timely manner.
  5. Hair washing, scratching or manipulation of the follicles should be avoided for two to three days after surgery.
  6. Exposure to direct sunlight should be avoided as much as possible.
  7. Smoking and alcohol consumption should also be avoided for at least a week.

Useful Tips for Faster Recovery after Hair Transplant

  • Avoid cleaning or pulling hair or irritating the scalp during recovery. Hair follicles are very sensitive after transplantation and may be easily pulled out. If the graft is removed from the skin, bleeding will occur at the site of the removed graft. If bleeding occurs, apply pressure to the area with a clean towel for at least 20 minutes.
  • If wrinkles form, do not pay attention to them as you may cause permanent damage to the hair follicles. Several cysts, pimples, or premature hairs may also appear at the transplant site. These may not appear at first but appear about a month after surgery, as new hair must come out from under the skin. All of these side effects disappears within a few days and do not require treatment.
  • Sleep with your head and neck high and completely avoid activities that may interfere with the treatment of hair inflammation. That means, for example, avoid brushing and styling your hair during this period. Do not dye your hair for at least a month and do not use Rogin or other hair loss creams for at least a week as it may cause severe irritation during this time. Your doctor may ask you not to wash your hair for two weeks

Frequently asked questions

FAQ

Is the hair transplant permanent?

Because the hair follicles transplanted to the balding areas are genetically resistant to going bald, they will continue to grow for a lifetime.

Will the scars be noticeable?

No. The reason is that surgeons usually make tiny incisions to the recipient area and hide them under existing hair afterwards. Therefore, no one will notice them.

Is Hair Transplantation painful?

Most people are surprised when they see how little pain there is during the procedure. Some discomfort is expected as the local anaesthetic is injected into the scalp. Once the skin is anaesthetized, there is no pain.

When will the signs of growth be visible?

Hair growth is a slow process even in individuals who don’t suffer from hair loss. Sometimes, you may have to wait for about three to four months to see the initial signs of growth. The reason is the hair’s natural growing cycle.

Do people easily understand that I’ve had hair transplant surgery?

If this is one of your concerns, you can wear a hat or stay at home for at least three weeks because the surgical area will be shaved down in the operation to provide an ideal surgical environment and to protect existing hairs. Accordingly, it will be red and a little obvious for a while. As time passes, the hair grows slowly. You may be asked some questions about the changes made in your new appearance but almost no one can say for sure that you have got hair transplant surgery particularly if minimal work has been done.

Will I lose more hair in the area because of the operation?

When work is done in areas where there is existing hair, you might possibly lose some of it. It usually happens if the hair is weak. After a while, the growing process starts again. Who can get hair transplant surgery? These days, almost fifty percent of men over the age of 50 deal with the hair loss problem. As a result, hair transplantation is the most common cosmetic surgery for men. Many women experience hair loss or thinning problems as well. Genetic features, aging, injuries, or some medical disorders can be mentioned as the major reasons of hair loss. Hair transplantation can be successfully carried out for all people who suffer from considerable hair loss without considering the cause.

How long does the procedure take?

The operation will be typically completed within a few hours, depending on the amount of hair loss. If the hairless area is too large, several sessions may be necessary to complete the treatment.

From which area is hair usually taken for the surgery?

Through the procedure, the hair follicles or grafts taken generally from the nuchal area will be transplanted to the targeted hairless area. If there is not a sufficient amount of healthy hair in the nuchal area or in the temporal region of the patient, hair follicles might be taken from other body parts with hair, such as the arms or the chest wall.

What is the success of hair transplantation?

To achieve your desired results from the operation, the hair follicles should adhere in the area where they are placed. If your surgeon chooses the most suitable technique for your operation, the success rate of the whole procedure will be high. For a natural look, the hair should be transplanted to the hair loss areas with a correct distance, correct angle, and correct density.
