  1. MYTHS AND FACTS ON HAIR TRANSPLANT Hair plays an important role in beautifying the personality of a person. With the advancement in the cosmetic industry, several innovations have been introduced in the hair transplant treatment. However, even today, several misconceptions are surrounding the mind of the general population. A common person would be having more myths in his mind as compared to talking about facts when asked about hair transplantation. This article aims to explore such common myths related to hair transplant and dismiss them with the corresponding facts by Dr. Swetha Ravi Penmetsa, MBBS MD from Aakrithi Skin and Hair Clinic. Myth 1: Is Hair Transplant only for younger people? Many people think that hair transplant is only for young people and it is not safe for people of older age. Therefore, people in their 40s and 50s try to avoid hair transplant treatment and try other temporary alternatives to cover their hair loss. However, the truth is that age has no relation with the procedure and people with all ages from the 20s to 70s can undergo the treatment. Moreover, people in 30s and 40s are the most ideal one as their hair loss has stabilized by then. Myth 2: Is hair transplant treatment unsafe and affects the brain and eyes? Many people may warn you that hair transplant is an unsafe method and can affect your brain and eyes. On the contrary, the treatment is very much safe as we work on the first layer of the scalp which does not affect the brain in any way. Moreover, the experienced doctor at Aakrithi Skin and Hair Clinic takes all precautions to ensure that the treatment is performed safely. Myth 3: Will the transplanted hair fall off? There is a misconception that the transplanted hair will fall off after growing for some time. But, you should know that the transplanted hair last for a lifetime and do not fall off. But, there is a natural life cycle of transplanted hair that you need to understand. The transplanted hair will fall off after 2-3 weeks of implantation and then they will start growing back, 10% every month. One may achieve the best results in 9- 12 months. Myth 4: Do transplanted hair grow? The transplanted hair is implanted along with its root because of which tends to grow. Properly implanted hair grows in the same way like natural hair and you will not be able to distinguish between the transplanted and natural hair. Myth 5: Will the hair extracted from the donor area grow back? Many people believe that the donor area from where the hairs are extracted will regrow. However, this is not at all correct. When a hair is extracted from the donor area, it is taken out along with its root, which means that it will not grow back and will leave a space there. An experienced doctor takes out the hair in such a way that space gets covered by overlapping hair.

  2. Myth 6: Is hair transplant only for men? Since hair loss is related to male pattern baldness, many women think that hair transplant is meant only for men and they cannot undergo the treatment. However, women are also suitable candidates for the procedure, though their baldness pattern and possible extraction of grafts can be different from men. The results of hair transplant are encouraging in women too and they should consider getting it done. Myth 7: Won’t I require any further medical treatment after hair treatment? This is again a misconception. Many people think that they won’t need any medical treatment after hair transplant. But, hair fall continues to occur in the area other than the transplanted one for which they might require appropriate medical intervention to stop hair fall. Myth 8: Will I get immediate results after a Hair Transplant? The transplanted hair will fall off after 2-3 weeks of implantation and will start regrowing after blood supply is established to the root. You should wait for around 9-12 months to see the utmost growth and complete results. Myth 9: Can I use the hair of another person for my transplant? Hair transplantation is not like organ transplantation where one can use somebody else hair. Hair transplant treatment can be done only with hair from your body. Your body will not accept hair from another person. Myth 10: Is surgery painful? Mostly people fear that the hair transplant procedure is very painful. However, the procedure is carried out under the influence of local anesthesia. So, there will not be any pain. Myth 11: Do I need to take any extra care of transplanted hair? This is not true at all. You do not need to take any extra care. You can wash, brush or style your transplanted hair just like the existing one. Myth 12: Will I get safe results from anywhere? The results of hair transplant are dependent upon from where you get it done and who performs it. If you get your hair transplant done from a clinic with no experienced doctors, you might become susceptible to infections and high wastage. On the contrary, if you choose a reputed clinic like Aakrithi Skin and Hair Clinic with Dr. Swetha Ravi Penmetsa as the experienced doctor, you can be assured of safe and happy results. Myth 13: Is Hair Transplant a highly expensive treatment? The cost of a hair transplant depends upon the number of grafts implanted and other factors. Therefore, its price varies. The cost of surgery has decreased today due to many innovations. Though the procedure is a little costly, it is affordable. To get the best result, do proper research on your own, visit a few clinics and talk to people who had undergone hair transplant to understand how the place functions before reaching a final decision.
