Is it true that hair loss is hereditary?
Will I go bald like my father?

If you have these questions doing the rounds in your head then you must know that it is quite true!

We often inherit a similar amount of genetic information from our parents and our parents’ genes are responsible for our likelihood, and these inherited hereditary factors affect us throughout our lives. About 95 genes present in our DNA are called imprinted genes and have a parent-of-origin effect. If a mutation occurs in these genes, it causes several diseases and autoimmune disorders.

A full head of hair represents youth, virility and self-confidence in an individual. As ageing occurs, we often suffer from progressive hair loss. Advanced studies have concluded that hair loss is caused by various factors such as genetics, altering skin and scalp conditions, hormonal imbalance, lifestyle factors, stress and ageing. Millions of people around the globe experience the problem of baldness, falling and thinning of hair as they age. Hair loss generally initiates from the 20s and 30s, and in ladies, the progression of hair loss is most recognisable after menopause. The ailment is known as androgenetic alopecia and, in men, male-pattern baldness.

Male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia), causes “U-shape” balding like patch in men which is one of the most common types of hair loss. The primary cause of this condition is the change in genes and genetic factors. Apart from genetics, if you maintain poor lifestyle habits like poor diet (lacks protein, zinc and biotin), low iron levels, smoking, alcohol intake and stress, can also cause early onset of such hair loss problems. Genetic variation in father genes can affect the child more as humans inherit more genetic information from their father.

In some rare cases, mutation and variation in Androgen Receptor gene located on the X chromosomes that is carried out by mother to son, also cause early baldness in man.

Hair loss is a distressing condition as it can affect your personality. It also affects your level of self- confidence, develops a fear of being rejected and also triggers stress which can create a negative impact on your life.

What you must know is that hair loss can be treated effectively with hair transplant surgeries even when it’s caused by genetic factors.

Giga sessions hair transplant using Body hair transplant

By | Blog | No Comments

There has been a gradual evolution in the technique of hair transplantation from strip technique (FUT) to Follicular unit extraction (FUE). Presently both techniques are prevalent but there is a definite trend towards the acceptance of Follicular unit extraction as the method of choice for graft harvest technique. In FUE technique, the hair transplant surgeon extracts the hair grafts from the back of the scalp using punches without any linear cut and stitches.

The need for Giga Sessions
At Orange Tree, one of the best hair transplant clinics in Delhi, we perform hair transplant in ‘Giga Sessions’ which is a preferable technique for severe grades of baldness. A large number of grafts is required to fill the bald areas. In such cases, the number of grafts available from the back of the scalp is insufficient to provide the required number of grafts to cover the entire scalp.

The next level of advancement in hair transplant surgery came from the idea that body hair follicles can be used to add the number of hair follicles. So, whenever the patient requires a Giga session (more than 4000 hair follicles) in one go, an expert body hair transplant surgeon finds it pretty easy as there is no limitation of hair grafts.
Dr. Sajal Halder who performs body hair transplant in Delhi, utilizes the hair follicles from beard, chest, back of torso, axilla, pubic area and the limbs. Body hair extraction requires highest level surgical skills he started this technique only after mastering the scalp FUE harvesting technique. Body hair transplant requires a lot of technical modifications and specialized punches. The procedure takes a longer time to complete and the cost of body hair transplant is a little higher than the cost of scalp hair FUE.

Who needs Giga Sessions?

The other group of patients (apart from the severe baldness) requiring body hair transplant are scarring alopecia and donor depletion.

Planning is crucial
The texture and growth of body hair is a little different form of scalp hair. So, the body hair has to be nicely mixed with scalp hair while implanting the follicles in the bald area. The planning of body hair transplant has to be done in the beginning so that we achieve the best hair transplant. Best hair restoration surgeon will be able to deliver excellent hair transplant result by a good density of hair and proper mixing of different follicles. At Orange Tree, we are routinely covering entire scalp baldness (front and crown) using 6000-10000 grafts in multiple sessions.

Beard Hair can be the best choice
Beard area which often extends onto the neck is a rich source of the hair. We often observe strong body hair in severe androgenetic alopecia. Commonly, we can harvest around 1500-2500 from beard region below the jawline. Sometimes the beard hair extractions can reach up to 6000 in multiple sessions. Beard transplantation into scalp is very common in advanced baldness treatment and the result speaks for itself.
