Myths and misconceptions of hair transplant

Hair transplant being amongst the most common cosmetic surgery treatment, is surrounded by many myths and misconceptions. There is a huge amount of confusion amongst the hair loss patients regarding choice of clinic, choice of doctor , choice of technique, assurance of results, quality of service etc. we will try to simplify the situation and clear some of the myths.

FUT versus FUE

For someone who has a large bald patch. Can be combines with FUT for a large bald patch. This is because there is a higher wastage of grafts with FUE in subsequent sessions and the lifetime harvestation of grafts with FUE is less than that with FUT.
FUT is a more professional procedure and needs expertise FUE is more publicized as it had more untrained dermatologists and physicians entering
FUT is a more complex procedure. FUE is simpler as compared to FUT, hence requires a smaller team.
FUT can be carried out in all kinds of hair FUE is not indicated in thin, thin curly and very curly hair, due to higher wastage.

Plastic Surgeon versus Dermatologists/ MBBS/Dentists/Radiologists, performing hair transplant.

Plastic surgeons are trained in hair transplant in their training, and are more adept at performing surgical procedures than other doctors who do not know too much about surgery. Training , experience and not financial reasons should be the criteria to do hair transplant. Always select Plastic surgeons to perform your hair transplant to assure better results.

Big brands versus experienced doctors in choice of clinics for hair transplant

Most big brands will have some doctor on panel, who has huge experience with hair transplant. Thus by choosing a big brand you are paying for the adveritsements, publicity, pomp and show also. It is more economical to select a doctor with large experience. This also allows a more personal approach to the procedure and the followup is more satisfactory


Hair Transplant is Temporary

Hair transplant is not a temporary procedure. The hair that is implanted is for life, and unless the doctor has harvested hair from a temporary zone the hair is bound to stay for life. This is because the hair in a fixed zone is resistant to the effects of DHT , thus removing the influence of the agent responsible for hair loss.

All doctors give same result, thus costs are major criteria to choose treatment

If you throw peanuts you will only get monkeys. Please remember that the cost of any procedure totally depend on the experience of the surgeon, the experience of his team, the safety protocols, the use of disposables, the cleanliness, and the standards of the clinic. Thus an experienced surgeon will be a bit more expensive, but he also gives complete assurance of results. A cheap clinic may perform a hair transplant for 15-20 k , but offers no assurance. Results at these clinics can be disastrous, and the hair that is damaged is a lifetime loss of hair. Choose the doctor wisely, keeping in mind his training, credentials, testimonials, his degrees and his results

Women do not need hair transplant

A large number of women benefit with hair transplant. Young women opt for this to lower their hairlines. Middle aged and older women do hair transplant to increase their density in the front and sides. Results in women are as good as in men for hair transplant

Medicines can be used for hair growth

Medicines at best have a supportive role to maintain and prevent further hair loss. They cannot grow back hair. Thus most of the advertised homeopathy and other "hair growth" medicines are ineffective to grow hair. In patients of advanced hair loss of Grade 2 and beyond, hair transplant has to be the first treatment modality and hair loss can be managed by the use of these medicines
