A hair transplant is the best solution for every individual struggling with hair loss. Moreover, many questions come into the mind of individuals while planning for the treatment like what to expect, how the treatment will be done, and much more. One of the common concerns among the patients planning to get the hair transplant in Vizag is, ‘Can other people’s hair be used for the hair transplant?’ Let me put this in a better manner for you, like the Hair transplant cost is different for every individual, and you will get to know about the same only after consulting the doctor. In the same manner, when you choose to undergo a hair transplant your hair grafts will be used for the treatment. Let’s dig deep into the same.
What is the procedure for a hair transplant?
During the FUE hair transplant, the doctor will administer your local anesthesia. The hair grafts are extracted by using a microsurgical extraction instrument to take out the follicles. The best part about hair restoration is that it leaves minimal scarring on the scalp because of the technique and tool used for the surgery. The hair follicles are checked under the microscope and after that, the transplantation is done. A small microsurgical needle is used to receive that for the hair grafts.
Is it okay or possible to use someone else’s hair for the hair transplant?
It’s okay to have this concern in your mind, because when a kidney or heart transplant can be done, then why not the hair transplant. But, for the hair transplant that is not possible at all. During the hair transplant, only the hair grafts extracted from your scalp or body part will be used. No 2 person’s hair is the same in terms of features or you can say it won’t be compatible. So, your hair doctor will not use the hair grafts from any other person during your hair transplant treatment.
To add to the above point:
When hair follicles from other people are used, your body will develop an immune response and consider it as a foreign substance. It means they reject the hair that will lead to infection. Moreover, you won’t see the results as the hair will not grow. So, using someone else’s hair for a hair transplant is not possible.
Can body hair be used for hair transplant treatment?
The body and scalp hair is different. In some cases, a body hair transplant is possible when the scalp does not have enough hair grafts. To understand the same and whether you are a suitable candidate for a body hair transplant or not, you need to consult the doctor.
How should an FUE hair transplant be done?
The FUE hair transplant is performed by extracting the hair grafts from one place to another, one by one. Due to this, some patients can have hair transplant due to not having enough donor’s hair. The best part is that with a hair transplant you will get natural-looking hair. If you are looking to get a hair transplant, then get in touch with our doctor.
