An Investment for Life
Kosmoderma introduces Hair transplantation in Bangalore.
Like good health and youth, most of us take a thick head of hair for granted — that is, until it is gone! Hair transplantation is widely considered to be the most effective option for restoring hair because it’s Long Lasting and relatively simple procedure*.
What is Hair Transplant?
Hair transplant (also called hair restoration or hair implantation) is the process of permanently restoring hair by transplanting new follicles into balding or thinning areas. Healthy follicles are taken from other areas of the body, most often the back or the sides of the head.
Types of Hair Transplants
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
It is the latest technique with least downtime in hair transplantation. It is a minimally invasive (no cutting or suturing required, done under local anesthetic) in which hair follicles are individually removed from the patient’s donor area and then individually transplanted to the recipient (thinning/balding) area. You can resume your normal routine immediately post procedure.
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)
In this type of transplant, the donor hair is removed from the scalp in one thin, long strip and then subsequently dissected into individual follicular units and transplanted. Longer downtime and there is a small scar on the donor area.
Body Hair Transplant (BHT)
It offers new hopes to people who are no longer candidates for traditional hair transplantation. The hair is harvested from different body sites like beard, chest, back, stomach and hands.
Facial hair transplant (FHT)
- Eyebrow reconstruction
- Mustache reconstruction
- Beard reconstruction
Candidates for Surgery
In order to be a candidate for a hair transplant four basic criteria should be met.
- Sufficient hair loss to affect the way you look “now”.
- Been unresponsive to medical therapy (for those who choose to use medication) like Finasteride, Minoxidil, PRP etc.
- Realistic expectations on what a transplant can accomplish.
- Enough healthy donor hair supply to satisfy current and future needs
How is HT at Kosmoderma different from other HT?
Kosmoderma provides Bio-FUE technique which combines the individual extraction of grafts with the Growth factors extracted from your blood. This technique provides better results as compared to rest of the available techniques of FUE.
BIO FUE has the following advantages over regular FUE :
- Improves the growth of hair
- Improves the healing of the recipient and the donor area
- Stimulates the stem cells of the implanted hair.
- Improves the texture of the hair.
Knowing about BIO-Therapy
Bio-Therapy is based on the concept of using the stimulating & healing effect of human germinative cells (which have got the ability to regenerate various important structures in embryonic life). These cells can be used in various ways so as to cure diseases like blindness, polio, cancer, and spinal cord injuries etc. The treatment is done by taking out cells from the individual’s body itself, which are then injected to the scalp in order to activate the dead cells.
The therapy works on three dimensions:
- It stimulates the stem cells of the existing hair as a result of which the weak hair become strong.
- The new hair are provided nourishment which helps them to grow stronger
- The healing of the donor area
This method includes the improvisation of conventional FUE.
- Bio-DHT is a combination of Direct Hair Transplant and PRP Therapy in which the hair follicles are extracted
from the recipient area and implanted simultaneously in the recipient area
- PRP Therapy is also given where the injection of Platelet Rich Plasma in the patient’s scalp takes place
The method has been generating high rates of success
Is it painful?
Our special technique of providing local anesthesia makes sure that there is hardly any pain during the procedure. Even after the procedure, there is mild discomfort only. A simple Paracetamol tablet is good enough to take care it.
I am a very young patient (Late teens to early twenties), am I a good candidate?
We do not recommend Hair Transplant for very young candidates, especially those still in their teens. Ideally one must wait until their early 20’ s before undergoing hair transplantation. But in specific cases such as traction Alopecia, hair transplant is an option.
Can females undergo a hair transplant session?
Yes, but Female patients often would require investigation for other treatable causes of hair loss. After doing examinations and investigations, if indicated, hair transplantation can be considered. It is very effective in women.
What are the advantages of BIO HT over other types of transplants like FUE / FUT / DHT?
BIO FUE / DHT is the latest methodology in hair transplant. This combines growth factors which is the next level of treatment procedure leading to better success rates and hair growth. This method was developed by the renowned AK Clinics with whom Kosmoderma has a tie up.
What preparations does one need for the Hair Transplant?
BHair Transplant is relatively a simpler procedure does not require much preparation. There are some pre-op instructions to be followed that we share with the patient whence the surgery is planned. Further there are some routine blood tests required which are required for any surgery.
When can one expect to see results?
Typically 50% of the hair grows by 6 months post procedure and over a 1year period you will see the full results of the procedure (80-90% of the transplanted hair should come back).
Is any maintenance required post procedure?
At Kosmoderma we do recommend growth factor infusions post surgery to boost the hair growth and attain the best results
What is the cost of Hair Transplant?
