When you lose your hair, you feel like you are losing a part of yourself. Your hair gives you confidence about your appearance. It’s one of the first things that you notice when you look in the mirror or at a photograph. You never thought you would be the victim of thinning hair. If things keep on the way they are, you will be bald. You can’t accept hair loss. You’ve tried remedies that are supposed to help, such as online products that are applied to your scalp and medication from your doctor. You’ve bought different kinds of shampoo in hopes of cleansing your scalp in such a way that the follicles will start producing again. None of these alternatives have been effective. Before you wonder if you will have to wear a hat for the rest of your life, consider strip grafting as a solution that could work for you.
Understanding Strip Grafting
Strip grafting is a popular option for hair restoration. It involves removing a small strip of skin from your scalp in areas where you have healthy hair growth. This usually takes place on the sides of the head or the back of the head in a discreet area where there is still plenty of hair to cover the area. Once the section of skin has been removed, our doctor will begin the process of dissecting healthy hair follicles from the skin. They will then be implanted in your scalp in any areas where your hair is thinning or you have already experienced balding. In time, new hair growth will begin in these areas until your hair is restored.
Why Choose Strip Grafting?
When patients choose hair grafts to restore their hair growth, they can choose strip grafting or have individual follicles removed one at a time to be transplanted. The strip grafting method can be performed quickly. And the results tend to look very natural.
