It is very safe and unbelievably just one day procedure. You just have to visit us once, it will change you forever.
This can be done either online or in the clinic. Here we assess the grade of baldness. We evaluate the number of grafts & the method depending upon the expected hairline, density and the donor hair character. Future thinning is also taken into consideration as hair transplant has permanent results.
Hairline, density, hair style and future goals are discussed in details with the patient. You & the surgeon then mutually decide the hairline. Photographs are taken to document the grade of baldness.
Hairline designing “Mimic nature hairline”: This is the most artistic part of the entire procedure, which will determine how natural your results look. We believe simply growing hair is not enough, it should be done in a manner as if “You never lost them before”. “Satya hairline” is absolutely natural and undetectable. Actually, hairline is not a line. It is a transition zone, where the density gradually increases as we move inwards. It is irregular, never a straight line. Single follicle grafts are implanted in the frontal hairline followed immediately by 2 of 3 follicle grafts to make it more natural. While designing the hairline we have to consider the possible future hair loss and the donor area limitations. Frontal area just behind the hairline is very important & should have more density of hair. This area plays a key role, as it is visible when you see in mirror or when somebody looks at you from front. As we move little backwards, we can place here less densely, to give your more coverage. It is very important to utilize the available grafts in the best possible way to give you maximum coverage.
A very important part of designing is to create holes for the grafts. It has to follow the direction of existing hair, if it is there. In the areas where no thinned out hair are present, especially in the crown area it requires a lot of skill and experience to mimic the natural hair growth. At satya you don’t have to think about these things, it will be taken care of very well by us. We plant each and every graft in the best possible way to enhance your looks.
Hair in the donor area are trimmed carefully so that the stitch line remains hidden from day one. Local anesthesia is administered in the donor area by a special Satya technique of no pain anesthesia. This is an absolutely painless procedure. When the area becomes numb, a strip having desired number of grafts is dissected out of the scalp, taking all the precautions not to dissect roots.
We at Satya, follow trichophytic closure technique to stitch the wound in all our patients. It is a special technique, carefully done to ensure that hair grow through the scar line also. Using this technique we are able to give you such thin and fine scars, which are hardly visible.
Preparation of follicular unit grafts:
The strip is then handed over to the experienced team of technicians and nurses for dissection. The dissection is done under high end microscopes having 10 to 20 times magnification. This step is very important to avoid wastage and to get maximum yield of follicular units.
The donor area is shaved off with a razor. Usually, it is shaved off completely but on patient’s request we can do it in layers. By doing so, the unshaved hair from above cover the shaved off area well, so nothing is visible from day one in the donor area. Fue procedure is no stitch procedure, individual follicular units are extracted from the donor site under local anesthesia. This is done using small titanium punches around 0.8 to 1.0 cm in size. This is a very crucial step, which determines the final outcome of the surgery. Every precaution is taken to extract non transected grafts, as it is going to give you best hair transplant results and excellent density. The donor area is shaved in such a manner that enough hair are left behind.
Generally, injections at the recipient site hurt a lot but with “Satya zero pain anesthesia”, it is absolutely painless. Once the area is numb, the surgeon will create holes for graft placement. This is a very crucial step and will decide the final outcome of the surgery. Every possible care is taken to give you the best possible looks. Once the holes are complete, grafts are planted in those holes very carefully without touching the roots by “Satya no touch technique”. This is very important to get maximum growth out of transplanted hair.
After completion of surgery, you will be provided with instructions regarding care of the transplanted site, donor area, about washing head and general medicines to be taken after the surgery. You can go back to your home the same day. Outstation patients, who want to leave, can go back the same day after the surgery. When the hair restoration surgery is complete, our clinical team will provide written and oral post-operative instructions. To avoid any kind of swelling on the forehead, you are given a headband, to wear for next 3 to 4 days.
You can start washing your head from the 3rd day. For 1 or 2 days, you can have little discomfort at the stitch site but it is taken care off well by the medicines. In some patients, some stretch kind of a feel or some numbness can persist for a week or so. Most of the patients can resume their office from the very next day. The scabs in the transplanted area take around a week to fall.
In case of FUT, stitches are removed after 2 weeks. We prefer using non absorbable sutures for wound closure, but on patient’s request absorbable sutures can also be used
