Hair loss is one of the most tricky health conditions which affects us.
A condition, where the root cause is most important to assess in order to understand what kind of solution can be most effective. A hair transplant surgery is not a cure. It is a fix. A fixer which attacks not the condition which causes hair loss but the hair loss. The cause is not addressed while the symptom is give importance.
Hair loss for most men or women is a result of a genetic or hereditary condition called Alopecia. It is a condition where genetically, the person is susceptible to hair loss.
A hair transplant surgery involves in the transferring of hair from one part of the head where there is hair to the affected area of the head. It is one of the most effective solutions for hair loss which is done all over the world.
Although, a hair transplant surgery is effective, it is not always the only solution for hair loss. It is very important that you go to a reputed trichologist or clinic to identify the root cause of the hair loss which is affecting you. If it is genetic, hair transplant surgery is a temporary solution as even though a part of the hair on the head is fixed, the hair which was always prevalent will still be in danger of falling off due to the condition.
Can Hair Transplant surgery prove worthy as a hair loss cure?
No. The truth is that hair transplant cannot prevent further hair loss but again, this is with subject to condition on the cause or origin of the hair loss which has affected the person. After a hair transplant surgery, temporary hair loss is often seen in most people but the cause of that can be due to two and two reasons only. Hair transplant will never be a hair loss cure as mentioned previously but can always be a fix.
So one reason due to which hair loss can be seen after a hair transplant surgery is due to stress. This condition is called ‘Telogen Effluvium’. This condition is caused as an after effect of the trauma faced by the scalp post an extensive surgery. Fortunately or unfortunately, this condition cannot be seen until around three months after the hair transplant surgery. You might wonder, what is so special about three months? Well, this condition is directly linked to the hair growth cycle of a person. This link causes the hair follicles to prematurely start their resting phase. Due to this resting phase, hair fall, temporary shut down of hair production and also uneven growth is seen but once the three months are done, the hair production begins again.
Now even though, the condition of Telogen Effluvium is a temporary one, there is also a permanent counterpart where hair transplant of any type can prevent this condition.
Androgenic Alopecia is a hereditary condition which affects men even after the hair transplant surgery. Hair loss usually happens in patches, so if a particular patch of hair is dealt with a hair transplant surgery, the rest of the hair is still susceptible to hair loss due to being genetically affected.
Newly transplanted hair, which is a result of the hair transplant surgery, tends to grow appropriately and in most cases without any complications, but any part of the head which is around the transplanted hair is still in danger of shedding.
It is often suggested by trichologists for the patient to undergo a pharmaceutical hair loss treatment before the surgery itself. This treatment aims in strengthening the hair and also preventing any further chance of shredding post the hair transplant surgery.
Hair loss is not a gift but it keeps on giving. If hair loss originates due to a genetic condition it is very important to get it diagnosed before any kind of treatment is advised. We at Hairsure understand the cause and effect of each and every condition and only then the treatments are given.
