FUT Hair Transplant in Vadodara
What is FUT Hair Transplant?
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT Hair Transplant ) is a surgical procedure where the hair is transplanted from the permanent zone, the area in the back and sides of the scalp where the hair is more resistant to balding, to the bald or balding areas of the scalp.
Procedure of FUT Hair Transplant
This is accomplished using naturally-occurring groups of 1, 2, 3, or 4 hairs, called follicular units. After the patient’s scalp is anesthetized, the doctor removes a strip of tissue from the donor area, an area within the permanent zone, and, once extracted, the donor strip is cut into many individual follicular units using microscopic dissection techniques. As these follicular unit grafts are being prepared, the doctor makes tiny holes in the scalp, called recipient sites, where the grafts are placed.
The arrangement and positioning of these follicular unit grafts determine the aesthetic qualities and FUT hair transplant results, and so this arrangement must be decided on a case-by-case basis, depending on the patients’ history of hair loss and the likelihood of future hair loss. Since follicular unit transplants mimic the way hair grows in nature, the results, in expert hands, will look completely natural and be indistinguishable from one’s original hair.
Surgery after care tips
Patients are prescribed with pain relievers after the surgery. Once reaching home don’t forget to take the medicines as soon as possible or as directed by the surgeon.
Wear protection on your head when you go outside in rain or sunlight for 3-4 weeks after the transplant. Direct prolonged sun exposure can harm newly transplanted follicles.
Do not smoke or drink alcohol
Do not smoke or drink alcohol for minimum of 48 hours following the procedure. Alcohol may thin the blood and cause bleeding, where as smoking hampers the healing process.
Limit all strenuous activity for next 2 weeks. This includes dancing, jogging, driving, lifting heavy objects and especially vigorous working out. Avoid bending over and excessive neck movements. Patient can resume yoga and brisk walk after few days.
Lie down and rest for 2-3 hours after the surgery. When sleeping or resting, use a travel pillow to avoid pressure on the stitch line.

Swelling, Numbness and Oozing

Numbness on top of head and at the stitch line is normal after the transplantation. It will gradually improve. Oozing of blood or fluid at the stitch line is normal for up to 48 hours after your procedure.
