But before investing into any medical procedure, it’s crucial to study and know about myths and misconceptions, benefits, and long-term implications of hair transplantation. 

Myths and Misconceptions with Hair Transplant 

While many people have fears looping in their minds about the side effects of hair transplants, we came to clear your myths and misconceptions after observing, studying, and experimenting all these years. Here are our insights and facts about hair transplantation: 

Myth #1: Hair Transplants are Painful 

Fact: You can expect a few discomforts during the procedure but modern hair transplant procedures such as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) are minimally invasive and well-tolerated by most patients. However, local anesthesia numbs the scalp while transplanting hair to ensure minimal pain during the surgery. Post surgery pains are managed with proper medication and care.  

Myth #2: Transplanted Hair will Fallout 

Fact: Worry less because it’s a natural phenomenon to lose some transplanted hair in the first few weeks after the procedure. This type of shedding, also referred to as “shock loss” is a temporary phase because hair follicles need to adapt to a new environment. It doesn’t take long for the transplanted hair to grow back in a few months and it’s clearly visible as well.  

Myth #3: Hair Transplantation Leaves Scars 

Fact: In our excellence towards different types of hair transplant, we observed that there’s minimal to no visible scars exist after the procedure, especially when it is FUE. If you consider FUT, thin linear scars may present but they are typically concealed by your hair. Experienced surgeons at Layers Clinics use meticulous techniques to minimize scars and ensure natural-looking results.  

Myth #4: It’s a One Time Procedure 

Fact: There are a lot of influencing factors depending on the intensity of transplantation and types of hair transplant techniques that may take additional sessions than expected. The number of sessions needed are influenced by the extent of hair loss, donor hair availability, and desired outcome of an individual.  

Myth #5: Transplanted Hair Doesn’t Grow Naturally 

Fact: When experts are involved, transplanted hair follicles have the natural ability to grow again. The direction, texture, and growth patterns of the transplanted hair will match the surrounding hair, resulting in a seamless and natural-looking appearance. 

Myth #6: Hair Transplantation is Expensive 

Fact: Preferring over long-term investment is better than heavy loss in short times. There are cost-effective and affordable hair transplantation treatments with exclusive offers. And with proven expertise and success in this procedure, Layers Clinics is the go-to place for regrowth of your hair.  

 So, understand these myths and misconceptions before being conclusive on something you are not aware of. The greater the expertise and professionalism, the better you’ll understand perceptions associated with these kinds of medical procedures.  

Types of Hair Transplantation 

There are four types of hair transplant techniques that make you feel shiny and youthful. These include: 

1.Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) – In this process, a trichologist cuts a strip of scalp from the rear part of the head and dissects it into multiple grafts. This helps to achieve a set for the bald area. FUT is recommended for the people who have larger areas of emptiness on their head and who want to see massive results in less time. Also, one more concern with this treatment is it leaves scars and stitches on the head, taking longer time to heal and recover.  

2. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) – The FUE treatment extracts individual follicular units by series from the back with the help of a tiny, specialized machine. It takes a few hours to complete with zero pain during or after the procedure. People who have less baldness or who like to go for shorter hair styles post-surgery can sign up for this. As the process is less invasive and minimum time is required, faster recovery is promised in addition to cost-effectiveness.  

3. Direct Hair Transfer (DHT) – It’s a premium version of FUE where follicular units are extracted from donor area and a manual extractor is used to implant the hair at empty areas. A device called Transplanter is used to insert hair follicles into the recipient area without creating any reception holes. At Layers, DHT is proven to be 100% accurate, giving most splendid results as it’s done considering graft’s angle, depth, and direction.  

4. Body Hair Transplantation (BHT) – In parallel to FUE, Body Hair Transplant deals with other parts of the body including beard, chest, stomach, arms, and legs. Once grafts are collected from these body areas, the follicles are transplanted onto the bald areas. It’s for people who suffer from extreme baldness or who have fragile hair at the back of their head.
