It is natural for the vultures to look bald, but it not natural in case of the human beings! In today’s world, ‘Beauty’ plays a vital role in everyone’s life, this makes people to spend enough money to look good, even through the artificial means.
Earlier, the hair loss treatments and hair transplantation surgeries were costlier, narrowing the benefits only to richer cadre of people. This is not the prevailing case at the present scenario; now, even a middle class people could benefit from such treatments at affordable costs. Especially in India, the treatment is really rendered at much reasonable costs, when comparing it with European countries, USA, etc. In USA the hair transplant treatment would roughly cost around $8000, but the same would cost around $3000 in India. Many renowned medical centers/hospitals in India are offering such treatments. It is always healthier choice to trust the popular medical centers; hospitals, especially government medical centers, such as All India Institute of Medical Sciences, or private hospitals/clinics like Apollo Hospitals, Dr. Bhatti’s Hair Transplant Clinic, etc…
Some popular private hospitals might provide very expensive treatments, but the point to ensure is that the effectiveness of the treatments; as long as the treatment would be effective, then it is worth spending money on the same. Since, such treatments have become prominent in India; many doctors from India are doing, much more specialty courses in the foreign universities and are automatically returning to India with a vision of pursuing such treatments and surgeries, as India has become the most comfortable hub for such treatments, in terms of surgical successes and cost of implementation. Such treatments would fall into the category of ‘Cosmetic Surgery’, as it is one of the surgical techniques, which does move the part of the skin, along with the hair follicles from one part of the body to the bald portion of the body (most probably, the head). The part of the body from which the hair follicles taken, are called as the donor site (within the body) and the part to which the hair follicles are transferred are called as the recipient site, more likely the destination site of the body. Such hair follicles that are transferred are generally resistant to the effects of baldness.
The hair transplantation is not focused only for hiding the baldness; it does have many usages, such as follows:
- It is done to hide the horrifying effects of accident scars and other marks in the body that would have caused by any kind of situations.
- It is majorly to hide scars due to baldness.
- It is done to restore the eyebrows, eyelashes, etc…
- It is even done in support of surgeries, such as face lifts, etc.
- It is also done to restore moustache; to remove burn scars, etc.
The hair transplantation in the present scenario is done through many types and methods; one such recent popular method is to replace the hair with natural occurring follicular units, thereby creating a mimicking effect. Such follicular units are said to consist of groups of 1 to 4 hairs and this method is called as Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). You could also seek the advices of doctors, who are in turn the members of the ‘Indian Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons’; you could also contact them, regarding any information/procedures/complaints, etc…
