Hair transplant surgery is the light in the darkness for the people suffering from hair loss and baldness. This treatment enables bald people to regain the natural hairline that they once had. While hair transplant is a life-changing procedure for most of the individuals, it may leave tiny prominent scars on your scalp, which is the reason most of us may avoid undergoing a hair transplantation procedure. However, with the advent of new techniques, having a scar less transplantation is quite possible.
Scars from different hair transplantation techniques
Follicular Unit Transplant and Follicular unit Extraction are the two most used techniques for hair transplant. Here is how these methods may leave scars.
Follicular unit transplant
Follicular unit transplant includes the removal of a strip of flesh containing grafts from the non-balding parts of the scalp- usually the back or sides of the head. The strip is placed in a special apparatus to separate the grafts and the wounded skin is sutured. The cutting and stitching of the skin leave a linear scar that will be there forever. Such scars can be hidden by adopting a supportive hairstyle or by trichophytic closure technique.
Follicular Unit Extraction
Follicular unit extraction is a more advanced and minimally invasive technique as compared to the FUT hair transplant. This method does not include cutting or stitching of the skin as the singular follicular units are extracted from the baldness resistant area of the scalp. A small punching tool is used to extract the hair follicles one by one. After the follicular extraction is completed, the hair transplant surgeon moves on to the next phase called as transplantation.
Since FUE does not include the cutting or stitching of any part of the skin, it does not leave tiny linear scars. However, it is still not a scar-free procedure as it does leave tiny pinhole scars at the donor parts of the scalp. These scars can easily be hidden with an appropriate hairstyle.
Scar-free hair transplant
If you are looking for a hair transplant that is completely scar free, stem cell hair transplant in Dubai may be the procedure that you should opt for.
Stem cell hair transplant is an advancement of the already existing FUE hair transplant methodology. In this procedure, when the follicular units are extracted, some parts of them are left behind on the scalp, so that they can encourage the new hair productions from the remaining parts. In this way, stem cell hair transplant does not only guarantee a scar-free transplant but also also help to regrow the hair at the donor parts of the scalp.
