Hair Transplant Surgery – The Pros and Cons
Among the options many people consider when they experience hair loss is getting a hair transplant. This type of procedure can reduce the appearance of hair loss when done properly, by a skilled and qualified surgeon, though a certain amount of training in aesthetics is required in addition to the medical knowledge needed to perform this type of procedure correctly.
There are several differences between having this type of surgery versus obtaining a hair system. First of all, the surgery in question must be performed by a physician trained in this type of procedure. However, that physician is not required to undergo any type of aesthetic or artistic training prior to performing this procedure, even though the results will likely end up being permanent. A stylist providing a hair system often has extensive experience not only in applying the hair system, but also in styling it appropriately so it fits well on the scalp and blends with the existing hair.
Second of all, this type of surgery does involve an incision, anesthesia, and skin grafting, as well as recovery time. A piece of hair-bearing skin is removed from the back, lower portion of the scalp. When done properly, the removal scar should be adequately covered by the remaining hair. A hair system does not require an incision, and in fact can be performed without a doctor, anesthesia, or medication.
A third difference between hair transplant surgery and a natural hair system is that surgery typically requires several hours to complete. Upon removal of the hair-bearing skin, that patch must then be carefully processed and cut into hundreds, or even thousands, of individual pieces. This is done so that one hair at a time may be installed into the incisions made on the balding areas. By comparison, a hair system takes several minutes to apply, and another several minutes to style correctly. Clients can then come in for periodic maintenance visits to ensure the system is holding up appropriately until the next time it needs to be replaced.
