Although scalp hair loss is probably the most common area of concern for patients, hair can be lost anywhere on the body. Natural aging, disease processes or trauma can cause hair loss on the face, body, eyebrows and eyelashes. For some patients this can be a concern, but fortunately there are opportunities for rejuvenation. The same techniques used to transplant hair into the scalp can be used for facial hair transplants, eyebrow transplants and body hair transplant in Lahore.
All hairs from any part of the body can be transplanted to another part of the body. Patients should remember that transplanted hair retains the characteristics it had before the transplant. This means that the hair grows in the same cycle, gets the same color and has the same texture. It can be problematic for transplantation between certain areas.
Patients should be aware that hair has different growth cycles in different parts of the body. This means that the hair of the eyebrow does not grow as long as the hair of the scalp. If head hair is transplanted to the eyebrows, the transplant hair must be trimmed. If body hair is transplanted onto the scalp, it will otherwise not grow as long as natural hair from the scalp, so the natural hair needs to be shortened shorter.
Hair Transplantation: Hair Restoration on the Face
Hair transplant surgery procedure for hair repair of the face (eyebrows, mustache and sideburns) is more difficult and different. When a hair transplant surgeon makes gaps in the vicinity of other grafts, the neighboring grafts tend to “jump” out of their corresponding gaps. In such cases, a hair transplant surgeon makes the slits in a provisional manner, with the transplants being inserted a few minutes later. The rest of the hair transplant procedure is exactly the same, when the hair transplant surgeon withdraws his needle, an assistant implants the transplant. When performing a reconstructive hair transplant, an experienced hair transplant surgeon always pays the greatest attention to the natural direction of growth and ensures that his leaf or needle is placed at an acute angle across the eyebrows.
For a successful reconstructive operation, restoring the natural direction of growth for the restored hair is more important than the number of hairs. To restore the beard and mustache hair loss, a hair transplant surgeon holds his knife as flat as possible on the surface of the lip to ensure the downward direction of growth.
On eyelids, the hair transplantation procedure is more complicated because the eyelids are very thin, mobile and very adjacent to the eye. The most difficult aspect of hair transplant surgery in this case is maintaining the direction of hair growth. Usually, the hair of the eyebrow is used as the donor hair and about 10-12 micro-grafts per eyelid are inserted in two separate sessions of hair transplant surgery with an opening of about 8-12 months in between. The use of a curved needle for restoration of the eyelid hair is the new innovative technique that hair transplant surgeons began to use for the convenience of hair transplant surgery.
Donor hair for eyebrow transplants usually comes from the scalp. A high density of hair is required for the eyebrow transplantation procedure to make them look natural and 2000 or more grafts for both eyebrows are not unreasonable in some situations. Placement is essential and requires a regular irregular pattern to achieve natural looking results. After eyebrow transplants, the hair must be shaved or a ponytail may occur.
Eyelash transplants are a much more difficult procedure for obtaining quality and lasting results. The long-term results of eyelash transplants do not show a favorable survival rate. With the introduction of Latisse (TM) on the market, it is suggested that patients only perform eyelash transplants after exhausting all other treatments. The donor site is again the scalp and individual hairs string through the lashes. Eyelash transplants of the scalp require brushing or excessive growth may occur.
Facial Hair Transplants
Replacement of mustache and beard is possible with facial hair transplants. Donor site is again the scalp and either a FUE or strip donor cut can be performed. The placement pattern for facial hair transplants must be regularly irregular. Large numbers of grafts may sometimes be needed for facial hair transplants due to the large surface to be transplanted.
Body Hair Transplants
Chest or pubic hair can be replaced with hair restoration procedures. Again, scalp hair is the usual donor site and grooming is necessary to produce natural-looking results.
