Common Procedures for Hair Replacement
It is a procedure in which the surgeon moves hair to a bald area of the patient’s head. During this process, the hair from the backside of your head is moved to the bald areas.
What Happens During and After The Process?
The dermatological surgeon first abstracts a portion of the scalp that has the ability to bear hair and the portion is taken out from the back of your head. Then he makes tiny pieces of the scalp that was removed from the back of your head considering the hair in every single graft, later is transplanted into the bald areas. Just after the session, the scalp will be cleaned and will be covered with gauze. Stitches will be removed approximately 10 days after the surgery
Under this process, the doctor/surgeon removes non-hair-bearing skin from the scalp so that the skin (Hair-Bearing Skin) can be stretched to fill in the bald areas. This process can cover as much as half of your bald areas. Scalp Reduction is performed to cover bald areas on the top and back of the head.
Risks And Side Effects Of The Process:
The patient will experience a little bit of pain after the scalp reduction surgery; the patient might have to go through headaches that will be treated with non-aspirin-predicated pain relievers. The patient might get a mild feeling of tightening in the scalp area for 2-3 months.
The process is used in a wide range of cosmetic procedures that also include hair loss. The therapy is not as popular as scalp reduction or hair grafting.
