Everyday practices which are the main reasons behind the hair loss

Dr. C Vijay Kumar: Most of us found hair at the back of the shirt, entangled in the comb, on the collar, on the pillow, and maybe at the workplace. You have made countless efforts to make your hair look healthy and strong. 

Using the aggressive method of drying or to comb the hair

You need to know that the hair breaks easily when they are wet. Tying it tightly, brushing, and combing it when they are wet will make them weak from roots and eventually they will fall out. It is also possible that they can get rough. Let them dry naturally.

Using hot water for hair wash

Enjoying a hot bath can be fun, but not at the cost of hair fall. Hot water can make the hair extremely dry and brittle. Preferably use warm water and then move to cool water when you want to rinse then thoroughly. Also, it strips away the natural oil from the scalp.

In case, the problem of hair fall is increasing at a fast pace then you need to seek the help of the doctor. You can consult our doctor for Hair Transplant in Vizag as it permanent solution for the hair loss issue.

Enjoying tight hairstyles

Hairstyles change quite often and they also include tight braids. This can affect the hair follicles from the roots which are not ideal for the scalp. If you pull them very tightly they will get damaged. Also, make sure while sleeping you never tie them tightly.

Neglecting the oil massage

At times, people do not prefer applying oil on the scalp because of its smell or it seems tacky. Well, in that case, you need to work on your hair care regime as soon as possible. Use coconut, amla, or olive oil as they provide nourishment to the hair follicles. Do this at least twice a week as they improve blood circulation in the scalp.

Use of hair styling tools Regularly

When hair is exposed to heat in excess, then it can create a lot of problems. A blow dryer or other heat styling products should be limited. Keep them at the lowest settings to reduce hair damage.

Use of cheap hair products

No doubt, the market is filled with hair products and getting something at a reasonable price is liked by everyone. But, what if after its usage the hair get affected or damaged. Make sure you get the products of trusted brands only. Additionally, the styling gels and sprays should be used only when it is required, otherwise, they make the hair sticky and stiff.

Not taking your diet properly

At times, because of the hectic schedule, we even force ourselves to skip our meals. But, this is neither good for health nor for the hair. This is going to make even everything worse. The hair should get the right amount of protein and essential nutrients.

Common Hair Replacement Procedures

Hair Grafting

Hair grafting is an outpatient procedure. Micro grafts have only one to two hairs per graft, punch grafts have 10 to 15 hairs, and slit grafts contain 4 to 10. Other options are mini-grafts contain 2 to 4 hair and strip grafts (contain long thin grafts 30 to 40 hair). A local anesthetic is injected into the scalp which helps in relaxation and comfort.

Procedure of Hair Grafting

In this procedure, the part of the scalp which has hair is cut which is usually from the back of the scalp. Following that the removed strip of hair is cut into small parts that have grafts and then transplanted into the balding area. The scalp is bandaged properly once the grafts are transplanted. To get the desired results it needs several sessions. After each session, it takes around 2 to 4 months to heal.

Scalp reduction

In the scalp reduction, the scalp part does not have hair removed so that the part of the scalp which has hair is stretched which fills the bald part of the scalp. With this procedure, the bald area on the top and back of the scalp is filled, but not effective for the frontal hairline.
Procedure

On the scalp, local anesthesia is given and the bald part of the scalp is removed. Around the area, the skin is loosened and stretched which makes the hair-bearing part come together and with stitches, it is closed. This is usually done with hair Transplant grafting techniques.
Side effects

Case texture: Smooth or Rough

  • Smooth implants are filled with saline. These are placed surgically in the large breast pocket so that it can slide easily to give the feeling of the natural and soft breasts.
  • Rough implants are also referred to as textured and they are filled with silicone gel. The scarring made inside the chest is going to hold the implant in its place. This way it will be less wiggly as compared to the smooth implant option. Moreover, with this type, the risk of capsular contracture is reduced.

Filler material: Saline or Silicone

  • Saline breast implant has sterile saltwater and when it is inserted it will deflate. Once it is placed correctly it is filled with a solution of saltwater. This option is considered safe as they will be ruptured when they are being used, the implant solution will be absorbed by the body.
  • Silicone breast implant has silicone gel. When they are inserted into the breast area they have filled already. Therefore, before the procedure deciding the size is important. The filling material is so strong that it can give the feel of the natural breast.

Shape: Round or Anatomical

  • With these types of implants aim to achieve the desired results by improving and enhancing the breast size. Patients who want to get emphasized breast volume then can opt for the option of round-shaped implants. This way it will give breast cleavage which looks the best. Moreover, after the surgery, if the breast implants are rotated then the look and shape of the breast will not be affected.
  • Anatomical implant is also referred to as teardrop implants and these breasts are enhanced very subtly. This type of implant helps in giving a more natural look. Along with that, in this case, the important factor is positioning.

What is the reason for Gynecomastia and what is the way to treat it?

What is gynecomastia?

Dr. VJs Cosmetic Surgery & Hair Transplantation Centre: Breast tissue or mammary gland is present in both men and women. The glands are helpful in producing milk after the mother has given birth to the baby. Men’s mammary gland does not get to the point that they can produce milk. 

What are the reasons behind man boobs?

  • Overweight

It might be possible that you do not have gynecomastia but you are facing the problem in which there is a fat deposit which is known as pseudo gynecomastia. If your weight is excess then the body is going to store the fat in different parts of the body. Once you start losing weight, the chest fat will get lost.

If you are facing a problem then make sure you seek the help of the best surgeon. Not able to find the best surgeon then do consult us to get the best treatment plan of gynecomastia surgery in Vizag.

  • Testosterone level is low

Dealing with a low testosterone level is very difficult and pointing out that you are dealing with this problem is not easy. Some of its symptoms include weight gain, bedroom problems, fatigue, mood disorder, attention issues, and fertility issues. There are other issues also which can trigger mood disorder, bone density issues, and cardiovascular disease.

  • Estrogen level is high

If the testosterone level is low then it is possible that the estrogen level is going down. Some of its symptoms include loss of muscle, belly fat, bedroom problem, urinary tract infection, gynecomastia, diabetes, and fatigue.

 

Treatment option: Getting rid of man boobs

Liposuction

  • Liposuction is not going to be effective if gynecomastia reason is a hormonal imbalance. It might be possible after the procedure problem comes back again. This is because the hormonal issue is still there. If the estrogen level is very high then you might not be able to find that you have extra abdominal weight.
  • Liposuction Surgery is going to be effective, the problem is not occurring because of hormonal imbalance or there are just fat deposits in the breast area.

 

Can exercise solve the issue of gynecomastia?

It might be possible to add a few extra push-ups and bench presses. But, resistance training is the ideal choice because doubling down the chest is not what you want when you are already facing the issue of man boobs.

 

Are there are long-term solutions?

  • You need to eat a diet with low inflammation because it can hold onto the body fat and retain water.
  • In vegetables, like cabbage & broccoli Diindolylmethane compound is found which helps in protecting against breast cancer. It has the enzyme which helps in converting the testosterone to estrogen.
  • By reducing the weight the chest size is going to be reduced. Additionally, this is going to balance your hormones also.

 

Hair growth timeline after hair transplantation

Waiting long enough to get a transplant done is an exercise in patience. However, waiting for your crowning glory to be back is yet another challenge which has to be faced with patience and understanding.  We intend to introduce you to the timeline after the Hair Transplant procedure. If you are considering Hair Transplant in Visakhapatnam, you better visit Dr. VJs Cosmetic Surgery & Hair Transplantation Centre.

 

 

Immediately after the surgery

Right after the surgery, you will be able to see a new hairline on your scalp. You will also be able to predict the hair growth pattern. It might not be accurate in all the cases though. In any case, you will at least have a vague idea of what your new hair’s growth pattern is going to be like.

The rest of the scalp is not very pleasing to look at. It will be red, irritable and full of scabs. The scabs will be there for some time. They will be washed away as the head becomes clear after clinical shampooing services. The service is given a day after the surgery.

The fortnight after the surgery

During the fortnight after the surgery, the patient will witness the shedding of the newly transplanted hair. We would like to clarify that this is a completely normal procedure and it does not mean that the surgery was unsuccessful. It is essential to know that the part of hair falling out is only the strand, not the root. The follicle is very much there and new hair will grow out from it in the future. The hair which will grow later will be much stronger and thicker than the ones which have been shed.

 

Four months after the surgery

After four months, the patient will witness worrisome phenomena-hair acne. It usually happens in nearly all cases. It arises due to the newly transplanted hair trying to grow. As it is weak, the follicular units fail to generate strong hair. Due to this fact, the hair is unable to protrude through the scalp. This causes acne in the scalp. In medical terms, it is called folliculitis. The condition creates quite a confusion in the patient as to what it is. It is confused with an infection a lot of times. The difference between the two conditions can be worked out in the following way-if it is an infection, it will get worse with time and feel painful. If it is just acne, it will fade away by itself after 10 days.

 

8 months after the surgery

The hair will start growing but it will be thin and brittle. It will also be in an unpigmented form.

 

1 year after the surgery

The patient will experience prominent hair growth accompanied by a good growth rate. Not many drastic changes can be expected after this stage.

Which Nutrients may be lacking in your diet if you are experiencing Hair Loss?

Hair loss is a problem which many people have to tackle in the present times. Sometimes,  the hair loss is due to some deficiency in the diet. It may be corrected by reviewing our dietary habits. Although the hair loss which results due to deficiency can be turned around, the same can’t be said of pattern baldness. Thus it often requires Hair Transplant in India.

Some other nutrients are also needed to ensure that you sport a healthy, luscious mane.

Iron

Anemia is the condition in which you are deficient in iron. It’s physical signs show up as exhaustion, pale skin and frequent shortening of breath. But what follows after a few months of iron deficiency is the deterioration in the quality of hair. Due to the deficiency of iron, the hair follicles don’t receive enough oxygen. As a result, the hair follicles enter a dormant stage. Due to this, the hair strands start weakening and new strands fail to grow. The hair growth starts suffering as a result.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C plays a significant role in producing collagen. Collagen is the protein which is the primary constituent of the skin, blood vessels, and ligaments. It also plays a primary role in developing and repairing hair. If vitamin C is amiss from your diet,  it will not be possible for the body to reinforce the structures which propel healthy hair growth.

Vitamin B-complex

Vitamin B is an essential prerequisite for ensuring that the cellular stricture is healthy and the brain functions normally. It also plays a major role in eliminating free radicals from the blood. Vitamin B-complex comprises a variety of vitamins out of which vitamin B7 (biotin) is considered most important for hair growth. Biotin strengthens the keratin structure which is the primary constituent of the hair shaft. The presence of biotin helps in the growth of visual strands of hair. Not only this, but it is also vital for breaking down the food into glucose which is the form of energy which is used to produce hair, skin, and nails. A person with Vitamin B deficiency is most likely to have brittle nails and hair loss.

Zinc

Zinc is a micronutrient you need for the proper functioning of the immune system. It is also vital to ensure that the body absorbs other nutrients from the food that an individual eats. Deficiency of zinc leads to unstable thyroid which triggers an imbalance in hair growth. Hyperthyroidism may be experienced which may cause inexplicable rapid weight loss.

Omega-3 fatty acids

This is a nutrient that cannot be manufactured by the body. They are important for keeping the scalp and hair hydrated. To maintain good levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, one must include pumpkin seeds and walnuts in the diet. If one is a non-vegetarian, then one could opt for salmon and sardines to enrich their Omega 3 levels.

Vitamin A

It is an essential requirement for making sebum, the liquid substance which lubricates our scalp and keeps the hair naturally conditioned. A scalp devoid of sebum is likely to be itchy and dry. For the maintaining good flow of sebum, one must eat carrots, sweet potatoes, and pumpkins which are rich in vitamin A.

People tell stories in their lives regarding their achievements, health, parents, love matters, and so on. As we all know that hair loss is spreading at a faster rate today, some people have stories to tell regarding their hair transplant procedures.

A hair transplant procedure is a combination of many skills that a surgeon and his technicians have to deploy on your scalp from the beginning to the end. However, many have sad stories to tell about their hair transplant procedures because of a poor postoperative treatment, botched surgeries, and lack of artistry.

From here, we get to phrase the right story of your hair transplant in India. This should be the systematic flow of events or procedures to tell the best story.

Having selected the clinic, you will have a consultation where you have to give details like

  • I am or I am not a smoker

  • I am physically fit and healthy or not

  • I am on these medications or not

  • The surgeon will also examine your scalp and specify the number of hair follicles needed.

One week to your hair transplant

  • You will stop certain drugs like blood thinners and multivitamins, but you will automatically take other medications as the doctor would have allowed you

  • You won’t need to cut your hair at least for a month.

  • Avoid alcohol and smoking

The day of the procedure

In most cases, some patients are unaware of what goes on (on the scalp) since general anesthesia is at times used. Today’s procedures can also be conducted with just the numbing of your scalp and you won’t feel anything on your scalp. This is what the surgeon will be doing;

  • Extract hair follicles individually using a micropunch. He will use a magnifier to extract the grafts to properly remove them

  • He will make small incisions in the recipient region after which, he will aesthetically insert in the hair follicles in the right direction, angle and pattern

After the procedure

  • There will be itching, swelling at times, but they will all go away

  • Expect the transplanted hairs to fall out during the first month and this is completely normal
