Severe hair loss can have a negative impact on the way that you look and feel. Strip grafting is an awesome procedure to help men and women who are dealing with serious hair loss. The idea is that you take a strip of follicles from a part of your scalp that is growing hair well and transplant it to a different part of your scalp where more hair is needed.
The follicles that are going to be used are pre-selected. One of the best reasons to consider this form of hair transplant is that it allows the practitioner to remove follicle units in their genetic form.
Did you know that your hair follicles might have up to four hairs? In some instances, it might only have two. For this reason, it is imperative that follicle units stay intact and that they are not damaged. To accomplish this goal, specialized microscopes are used during the procedure. Then the units are separated and stored inside of a solution designed to give them the best chance at surviving the transplant process.
With the strip grafting process, live roots are moved from one part of your head and transplanted to another area. This procedure is popular simply because it works. It leaves you with a natural hairline. The transplanted hair can be shampooed; you can shave it, you can cut it or you can style it. It’s going to grow back like any of your other natural hair.
The roots of your hair are very resilient. When they are transplanted properly, they usually don’t fall out. This procedure allows you to recoup the hair density that you lost. Depending on the size of the bald area, it is possible that the entire area can be covered with transplanted hair.
While this procedure is amazing, not everyone is a candidate for it. To be an ideal candidate, you need to have good overall health. The healthier you are, the more likely it is that your body is going to take to the transplant. Other things that will be factored in when determining whether you are a candidate for this procedure are the severity of your hair loss, your age and the quantity of the donor hair.
The results that each person gets from this procedure are different. For you to get the most out of this procedure, you need to have realistic expectations for what it can do.
