Hair loss is one of the most common aesthetic defects. Generally, when it comes to hair loss and baldness, people think of men. However, women can also experience hair loss. According to the scientific studies carried out today, an average of 50 – 100 hair strands fall out per day is a condition that is seen in every person. If a person has more hair loss than 100 hair strands, he/she will have baldness and hair sparseness day by day. The most effective and permanent solution for hair sparseness and baldness is hair transplant. However, hair transplant is not preferred only by individuals with baldness problems. It is also possible to hair transplant to burned and wounded areas. Hair transplant is frequently used to camouflage the wounds in the hair.
Hair Transplant to Burned and Injured Areas
It is possible to remove burns and scars that happened due to various reasons in the hair with aesthetic operations. However, after these operations, it is difficult for patients to have the natural and beautiful appearance they want. It is possible to hide the burned and injured areas completely with hair transplant. Hair transplant to the wounded area is performed just like normal hair transplant, by taking the hair follicles from the nape area of the patient with some methods and transplanting them to the recipient area. After this operation, the hair follicles, which were injured or burned for various reasons, will start to grow and they will grow in their natural direction. That is because the new and healthy hair follicles are transplanted to replace the burnt hair follicles of the patient.
How is Hair Transplant to Burned and Injured Areas Done?
When performing the hair transplant to the burned area, the number of required hair follicles for the patient is determined. Then, the area from which the healthy hair follicles will be extracted is determined. The patient is given detailed information about the operation. Then, he/she is taken to the operation room and local anesthesia is applied to him/her. When the patient is under the effect of local anesthesia, he/she is conscious but does not feel any pain during the operation. Then, the hair follicles are extracted with various methods from the donor area that are determined for the patient. The extracted hair follicles are separated and stored in special solutions. In the burned area, the necessary channels are opened for the hair transplant. Hair follicles are transplanted in these channels. That way, regional hair transplant to the burned and wounded areas is performed.
