Successful transplant of 9000 hair strands
Follicular Unit Extraction is one of the two widely used methods of
Hair Transplant, wherein follicular units consisting of 2-4 hair strands
are extracted from the donor site and implanted, creating appropriate
openings with accurate angulation to match the natural hairline.
The procedure is performed under tumescent local anaesthesia, so no
hospital stay is required. Utmost precision is required while extracting
hair units to avoid transection and wastage of grafts. 0.8-0.9mm motor
punches are used to minimise scarring. While implanting, openings
are created in such a manner that gaps in between is almost similar to
A 23-year old man with male pattern baldness grade 3 with generalised
diffuse Alopecia visited Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital. He had
been experiencing gradual thinning of his hair for the past 6 years and
had tried medical modalities like Mesotherapy, PRP, Laser sessions
with limited results and long term maintenance. His condition had led
him to develop very low self esteem. After evaluating his case it was
decided to go ahead with FUE technique of Hair Transplant.
We had decided to implant around 4000 grafts i.e around 8000 to 9000
hair spread over a 2 day surgery to cover atleast 80% of the scalp. It
was a day care procedure with minimal scarring and bleeding.
Patient resumed his work on the 4th day of surgery with few precautions.
After a month, Derma Roller and Mesotherapy sessions were started
once a month to enhance the hair growth for 6 months. Thereafter, the
patient required only negligible maintenance with life-long results.
