Hair transplant surgery is very common these days all over the world. It helps majority males and less commonly females who have suffered from hair loss. Hair transplant surgery hels to redistribute hair from back side of scalp as well as sides of scalp, beard area and other body areas too in some cases.
The history of hair transplant surgery has many phases and developments mainly by dermatologists.
Dermatologists are specialists of hair, skin and nails so they are expert of hair diseases and all available hair treatment options. Hair transplant surgery is the sub speciality of dermatology and dermatologists has evolved it over the years. Currently, hair transplant surgery is being performed by many other medical specialties.
Initially, strip harvesting or follicular unit transplantation (FUT) was the only option but now a days new techniques have evolved like follicular unit extraction (FUE) in which there is no linear cut, stitches & linear scar are involved.
Hair transplant surgery is a very safe surgery if performed by a qualified as well as well trained doctor. It is an office based surgery of few hours and there is no indoor hospital admission needed. Whole procedure is performed under local anesthesia involving the scalp area only. There is no major after care involved after the surgery.
FUE (FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION):
We take single hair grafts from donor areas with motorized powered micro punch and then transplant these micrografts on the recipient areas.There is NO LINEAR SCAR, NO STITICHES & NO LINEAR CUT involved in FUE hair transplant surgery.
FUT ( Follicular Unit Transplantation or Strip Hair Transplant Surgery)
Around a finger width sized skin along with hair is removed surgically from back of the scalp.
There used to be a linear scar generally on the back of scalp but with new TRICOPHYTIC CLOSURE at Boston Aesthetics that scar is tried to be almost invisible as hair grow from within the scars. FUT is better regarding total number of grafts and survival of grafts as compared to FUE.
Combination of FUE & FUT
We also offer combination of both FUE & FUT at Boston Aesthetics for increased number of hair grafts.
BEARD HAIR TRANSPLANT
We offer most natural looking beard hair transplant. If there is no beard or small beard or beard is lost due to some trauma or any other factors, beard hair transplant is very good option to go for at Boston Aesthetics.
BODY Hair Transplant
If donor area on scalp is not good or not sufficient enough then we can take hair from other parts of body like beard, chest, underarms, pubic areas etc. At Boston Aesthetics, we offer most natural looking results after body hair transplant.
PRP injection helps to improve hair loss and hair growth. Although PRP is not the alternate of Hair Transplant Surgery, it can help to improve hair quality in regards of hair loss & hair growth.
Medical Treatment for Hair Loss:
Medical treatment is important for existing hair to stay for longer time.
Minoxidil: Topical spray which helps in hair loss
Finasteride: Oral pill, which helps to stop hair loss
FUE hair transplant leads to harvesting or pulling out hair grafts with micro punches from back & sides of scalp taking care of safe donor area.
FUT (or strip) hair transplant leads to cutting out around finger sized strip from safe donor area rom back of the scalp and then hair grafts are cut apart from that strip and transplanted on the frontal recipient area.
Dr. M. Khawar Nazir offers both FUE and FUT (Strip) hair transplant surgeries. In addition to FUE & FUT hair trabsplant, Dr M Khawar Nazir offers combination of FUE & FUT (Strip) hair transplant surgery as a mega session if patient needs higher /maximum number of hair grafts.
Here are few pictures with marking of both FUE and strip method of hair transplant of a patient who needed both cron area as well as fontal area in one mega session.
Mega session is our priority to give the maximum number of hair grafts in single session during FUE hair transplant.
Dr. M. Khawar Nazir tries his best and put his all efforts to harvest maximum number of grafts in single session. His every hair transplant session is basically a Mega session as he gives maximum number of hair in one session.
Dr M Khawar Nazir believes that multiple session can lead to micro scarring which can lead to bad vascularity and bad healing in the upcoming sessions. This is the reason that Dr M Khawar Nazir makes his all hair transplant sessions as mega session so that there will not be any need of further hair transplant sessions in future.
Here are few pictures of mega session and we can see that how much area was covered in single session. We try to cover whole bald area from front to vertex to crown in single mega session.
Hair line design is very important in the natural appearance. Dr M Khawar Nazir pay speciall attention in drawing the hair line so that it looks very normal even in late ages like in 60s and 70s of age.
Lower hair line looks good while in youth but same hair line may not look good at old age. So hair line should be designed in such a way that it should not feel odd at any age.
Also in addition to hair line design, the angles of hair in front line , specially at the temple areas are very crucial.
