7 things you should know before getting a hair transplantation if you don’t want to get hurt for free

What should you know before getting a hair transplantation?

Because of the high cost of a procedure from thousands to hundreds of thousands of baht, if you plan on spending such an amount of money, let’s get you to know more about the proper information and what are things people still misunderstand. I’ll tell you all about it today.

  • Don’t believe the numbers used in the ads.

What is often found is to claim a hair survival rate of 95% or even up to 99%. In fact, advertising with numbers like this is something that is easy to say, but very difficult to verify because no one is going to sit and count it all though, right?

In fact, according to research, if every step of the hair transplant is done correctly, the chances of survival rate of the hair will be higher than 90%, which is enough to make it look better with a good density of hair. What you should pay attention to is not these numbers, but rather the actual results. Does the hair grow as thick as you want? If the reviews they show off still look thin, even if the clinic says that the chance of survival is as high as 100%, we probably don’t want to get it done there anyway, right?

  • A hair transplant is not the only answer

A hair transplant surgery is often a solution for people who have severe hair thinning problems and there are no hair roots left. However, if there are still hair roots left but the hairs are just getting thinner, there are still other treatment options i.g. Taking medicines, PRP treatment or LLT treatment etc. These options might be suitable and also cheaper, more importantly it helps to reduce a number of grafts if you really need a surgery in the future.

  • The more grafts, the better value, for real?

This is a very frightening one because you first need to understand that the hair from the back of the head (Donor site) is limited, if it’s used up, it’s used up. Therefore, a good surgeon will help you to plan for the long run. If the patient has a tendency to need multiple sessions, the doctor must be more careful in planning and considering other treatment options to help prevent donor area from being used up. The good principle is to use as little hair at the back as possible but the density is close to natural hair.

  • The DHI technique can grow more hair density than the FUE technique … Really?

This is considered an inaccurate advertisement, so it must be reiterated again that the DHI technique is the FUE that uses Implanter Pen, and how much is a density depends on the size of the implanter Pen’s needles. If some places are still using Forceps, the density will depend on the size of the slit needles for preparing the implanting area. Therefore, if the implanter needles and the slit needles are the same sizes, they can be implanted the same density. Thus, using DHI technique is not an excuse for a higher number of grafts tehn charging the patients more money.

 

  • Long-hair Hair Transplant technique doesn’t make transplanted hair immediately long!

There are many girls who want to get a Long-hair Hair Transplant technique done because they thought the hair would be immediately long right after a procedure, but this is one of the “wrong” misconceptions. In fact, a Long-hair Hair Transplant concept is to move the hair that is long without having to shave the back of the head and when implanting the hair, the long hair will be implanted. But the point is that in the end it has to fall off first like a normal hair transplant technique anyway. AGAIN, the hair won’t continue to be long immediately after a procedure.

  • Getting hair transplant surgery at any clinics the hair would grow the same

Trust me, it’s not the same. There are such clinics where procedures failed and the hair didn’t grow because I have “fixed” it in many cases. I’ve also seen it all from the kinds that grew sparsely to the ones that grew in the wrong direction looking like Fido Dido without having to gel the hair or even with the cases that look like wearing a wig at all times that everyone asks you about it … We wouldn’t want this to happen to us though right. Therefore, if you want to get a hair transplant done, ask to see a lot of their work until you are more confident that the results are consistent and not that some are good, and some are bad because alternately we wouldn’t want to have to pray for the result to be good, right?

It’s such a long article I’m writing here as I hadn’t got the time to write as much but hopefully, this information will help clear up any misunderstandings and help anyone who is interested in getting a hair transplantation make better decisions. For the next article, what I’m going to talk about, please stay tuned!
