Myths and Facts About Hair Transplant

   As the popularity of hair transplant gets higher, the sources of information on the treatment increase in number as well; this leads many wrong information to spread which can mislead and confuse the treatment seekers.

   Especially online resources about hair transplant are very widespread today; when looking for a hair transplant, people need to be questioning and check more than one source to make sure the information is genuine.

   Here are some of the most common misleading information you will see while online-searching for hair transplant.

Hair transplant is only for men

   The reason why people often think that women cannot have hair transplant is the hair loss conditions to be more common among men than women; male pattern baldness is a serious problem affecting almost %60 of men around the world. While this is the case, it is not a surprise that hair transplant is opted by men more often. Nevertheless, hair loss is a very important condition among women too and hair transplant operations are also suitable for women to restore the density, bald patches and receding temples.

 Hair transplant leaves a linear scar

   Before the latest hair transplant technique FUE has emerged, the most popular hair transplant technique was FUT; FUT is an operation in which a linear hairy skin strip is extracted for harvesting hair follicles and transplanting them into the balding area. This technique requires stitches afterwards and leaves a permanent linear scar behind. However, FUT is a traditional technique today which is only used for some specific conditions in which the donor area is limited. The latest and most common technique FUE does not leave any scar and offers a much smoother procedure. So, the linear scar myth might have been true in the past, but it is not today.

Hair transplant techniques are only for the scalp

   On the contrary to common belief, hair transplant techniques give very effective and permanent results in other parts of the body in which patients suffer from hair loss. The most common parts of the body which can benefit from the latest hair transplant techniques are beard, moustache, eyebrows and sideburns. The basic principles of the operation are the same in all types of hair transplants and the number of patients who benefit them increases every day.

Hair transplant is a painful procedure

   Hair transplant is a delicate and minimally invasive procedure performed by many sharp-ended tools and lasts longer than many other cosmetic operations; but it is not a painful procedure at all. Hair transplant is performed under local anesthesia which provides the patients with a completely painless operation. Patients feel very comfortable during the procedure and can get back to their daily routines in a day after the operation.
