WHAT IS HAIR TRANSPLANT?

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves hair follicles from a part of the body called the ‘donor site’ to a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding are transplanted to the bald scalp.

Hair transplantation can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair and chest hair to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.

The process involving follicular hair transplants is considered to be the most effective among hair restoration methods. In follicular hair transplant, the surgeon transplants hair from the permanent zone in the back of the scalp onto the affected areas.

Follicular hair transplant procedure

During follicular hair transplant the surgeon scans the follicular units to be removed from the donor tissue. This stereo microscopic dissection helps in protecting the follicular units. It also ensures a rich yield of both the follicular units and the total amount of hair that is restored.

Donor strip – In follicular hair transplants, the donor strip is the hair strip that is taken from one part of the body and transplanted to the bald region of the scalp. In this technique, the donor tissue is removed in one piece. This ensures that the follicular units being removed from the back of the scalp do not suffer from any damage.

Donor strip extraction – The donor strip is first taken out from the permanent zone in the back of the scalp. Then it is transplanted onto the areas of the scalp where there is no growth of hair. The single-strip harvesting in follicular hair transplants ensures preservation of the follicular units and protection of individual hair follicles from possible damage.

Advantages of hair transplant

Hair transplants are completely safe and natural. No special chemicals or medicines are used in this process that might damage your hair. Amongst all the hair growing methods hair transplant surgery is the most natural.

If you want a long term and permanent solution for your baldness then consider hair transplant surgery. There is no hassle in handling the transplanted hair. The person can maintain it as per his wish. He can color it oil it, wash it and can do hair style also.

A brief history of liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the world. This relatively simple procedure has a long history that went through multiple iterations and was assisted by technological innovations to reach a point where it is today.

Liposuction was first invented by two Italian gynaecologists, Dr. Georgio Fister and Dr. Arpad Fischer in the year 1976. Their technique of blunt closed liposuction was published in the year 1978. Here the suction cannulas were quite large and sharp, but they were able to offer satisfactory improvements to the patient’s aesthetics.

This innovation became extremely popular in Europe, however, it wasn’t until the 1980’s that liposuction became popular in the USA. However, technicians still used primitive technology that used large suction cannulas, thus limiting the results one could achieve.

This method was greatly improved when Dr. Jeffery Klein developed and studied the uses of tumescent local anaesthesia. He developed small, non-sharp cannulas which reduced blood loss and thus enabled for a much better fat removal.

This technique has been greatly improved since then and it undergoes constant technological improvements, thus ensuring betterment in liposuction.

Neck lifts are now less invasive

         Do you have rounded jaws? This might be because of the excessive fatty tissues in your jaw that contributes to the lacking definition between your neck and your jaw. This rounded shape can give you a chubby face, thus making you look older than you actually are.  The best way of getting rid of the excess tissues and regaining a well defined jaw is by a procedure called a neck lift.

          Neck lift procedures have gotten less invasive these days, thanks to the excellent advancement in medical technologies. Here, a small incision is made underneath the chin, and excess fat is removed via liposuction. Then two more incisions are made behind each ear, which is then used to tighten the platysma muscle, which helps to achieve a tight, firm appearance.

      This method is extremely safe and leaves virtually no scars. Smaller incisions mean shorter recovery time and less discomfort as well. With the incisions being made at dedicated locations, it reduces the risk of damaging facial nerves. Ultimately, it offers you natural looking results over longer periods of time.

         At Asian Hair and Skin Clinic, we offer exquisite neck lifts and other forms of facial correction procedures that makes your skin look younger and better. For more information about our services, do visit our website at www.asianhairnskinclinic.com

5 tips to take better care of your skin

With the increasing pollution around us, it is imperative for us to take good care of our skin in order to avoid pigmentation, premature ageing, acne out break and a number of other problems. Here are five tips from our specialists at Asian hair and skin clinic, to help you take better care of your skin on a daily basis-

  1. Use sunscreen: Although exposure to soft sun-rays during the early mornings or evenings is beneficial and necessary part of a healthy lifestyle, exposing your skin to the harmful rays of the afternoon sun can turn out to be disadvantageous in the long run. Always remember to wear a good broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15.
  2. Smoking is injurious to skin: Smoking is not only harmful to your respiratory tract, but also affects your skin. When the contaminated blood transverses beneath your skin cells, it narrows the blood vessels underneath your skin and accelerates wrinkles. Insufficient supply of required nutrients and oxygenated blood robs your skin of the natural ‘glow’ and makes your skin look clammy.
  3. Be gentle: Easy does it. Use a mild soap, and avoid vigorously scrubbing your skin with heavy abrasives. If required, us a soft loofah to remove any grime that won’t go away. Make sure to use face wash for your face, and not the regular soap. Use a moisturiser that suits your skin to keep it from drying out throughout the day.
  4. Drink water. Lots of it: Doctors prescribe drinking up to 8 glasses of water a day. Water is a great detoxifier and also helps keep your skin well hydrated.

Eat a well balanced meal: Including vitamin C rich meals such as oranges and lemons into your diet will help you keep your skin healthy. This diet should also contain copious amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables as well.
