Common Q&A for Hair Transplant

1. How long do Hair transplants last ?

LIFETIME. When carried out correctly by a qualified, experienced board- certified doctor, a hair transplant should last permanently and forever.

2. What are success rates of hair transplant?

Hair transplants are effective procedures for restoring hair growth following many causes of hair loss. The success rate of hair transplant surgery depends on many factors, including the skill and experience of the surgeon and the thickness of the person’s donor hair.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), hair transplantation can provide a modest change in hair fullness. One studyTrusted Source found that the majority of people who underwent FUE using body or beard hair combined with scalp hair were satisfied with the results at an average follow-up of 2.9 years. Among 79 participants, the mean overall score of satisfaction was 8.3 out of 10.

3. Is hair transplant harmful?

Hair transplant surgery is normally safe when performed by a qualified, experienced board- certified surgeon. Still, individuals vary greatly in their physical reactions and healing abilities, and the outcome is never completely predictable.

4. Are there side effects after a hair transplant procedure?

Yes. As common with any medical procedures in the world, hair transplant does have side effects. Hundreds of tiny round white scars on the head caused by the incisions to extract the hair follicles, which will be typically invisible to the human eye after your hair has grown out. Numbness, bleeding, itching, swelling around the eyes and forehead, and temporary cyst formation on the areas where the hair is being transplanted. Risk of infection and inflammation, if proper care is not taken during and after the surgery.

6. Do I need a hair transplant? 

Consider these points to decide if you need a hair transplant. If you have been diagnosed with a condition which prevents natural hair growth. If you are above 25 years of age and have been balding for many years, and now your rashes on the scalp hair loss has stabilized. If you find do medically proven hair loss treatments do not work for you. If you have a stable supply of donor hair.

If you’re young and still experiencing hair loss, you may need to wait to get this procedure. That’s because even if you get a hair transplant, your thinning hair will continue, causing the end result to look uneven. With that, hair transplants are a permanent solution for baldness. Hair transplantation is the solution to treat hair loss. Always seek consultation before you choose this option so you’re sure it’s the right choice and the right time for you.

7. Scalp micropigmentation is a tattoo?

Scalp Micropigmentation goes by many names: SMP, scalp tattoo, hair tattoo, and hair pigmentation. The short answer is yes. Scalp micropigmentation is technically a tattoo.  Well, Some say it is, some say it isn’t. Scalp micropigmentation just a simple treatment that works in the combat against hair loss.

Scalp micro-pigmentation (SMP) is increasingly gaining in popularity as an alternative for or a complement to hair transplant in male or female pattern hair loss. SMP uses specialised needles to carefully and skillfully ‘tattoo’ or implant coloured pigments/inks into the scalp to create a natural closed hairline.

8. Is FUE available in Malaysia?

YES. Malaysia’s very own GLOJAS Hair Specialist Clinic offers Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE),  a hair transplant method in which the doctor extracts the follicular units of hair, from the donor area of your head, one by one.

The doctor uses a small microneedle, which punches a tiny incision around a hair follicle before extraction. Each unit contains one to four hairs. These one to four hair groupings (called follicular unit grafts) are then transplanted into the balding areas of your head. In this method thus, there is no need for the surgeon to make a long incision in the donor area.

Advantages of this method are:

  • No visible scar line at the back of head and no chance of gaping of scars
  • A more natural looking hair line
  • Less pain and downtime for patient
  • Although it is time consuming and labor intensive, it is a preferred method of transplantation these days and very much in vogue.

There’s NO reason to having a hair transplant abroad when Malaysia’s very own GLOJAS Hair Specialist Clinic offer world-class hair transplants to even patients from the USA, Australia, and beyond.

Guess what? you are fortunate enough to live near a proven hair transplant clinic that operates safely and can give you the results you desire.

10. How does hair transplant work?

There are actually two different hair transplant procedures and how it works. Both start with the surgeon cleaning your scalp, injecting some anesthesia, and choosing one of two methods: follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular unit transplantation (FUT).

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE Procedure)

Rather than cutting a strip of skin, the surgeon will extract individual hair follicles from the donor area. The surgeon uses a blade or needle in the area of your scalp that’s receiving the transplant and makes tiny holes to then delicately place the extracted hairs into these holes. The surgeon can transplant several strands of hair in one session. Gauze, grafts, or bandages will cover your scalp for a few days post-surgery.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT Procedure)

A surgeon will cut a strip of skin from the back of the head. The incision is several inches long. The surgeon then separates the removed area of the scalp into two sections. Follicular unit grafts are then transplanted. These sections will help the hair grow. The incision site is then stitched up.

11. Does hair transplant hurt?

Hair transplant surgery is much less painful now, than it was in earlier times when larger sections of scalp were excised. However, this does not mean there is no discomfort or whatsoever. It is a less invasive surgery with no visible scarring in the donor area. FUE hair transplant does not hurt at all, as we use a local anaesthetic to numb the scalp.Most patients report almost no pain in FUE surgery.

Overall, when it comes to hair transplants at GLOJAS Hair Specialist Clinic, the pain you might experience is minimal and relatively short-lived. The procedures and recovery times are generally quick, so you can get back to your daily life with minimal discomfort.

12. How long does it take to obtain best results?

As to how long you need to wait until you can appreciate the final results, the answer again varies, based on the fact that those results do not appear from one day to the next.

It won’t be until the third month when we’ll be able to see this new strong hair sprout from the grafts during what is medically known as the anagen phase. When we start noticing the growth of new hair, we can start appreciating a certain normality on the scalp and the final result. It won’t be until the third month that we begin to see the birth of those new strong hairs that have sprouted from the grafts in what is medically known as the anagen phase. It will be when we start to notice the growth of new hair that we can appreciate a certain normality on the scalp and the results we will end up having.

It should be noted that it will not be until around the fourth month when we see our new hair grow normally. Ten months after having undergone the surgery, we will more or less be able to see the definitive results. Between six and nine months after the surgery, the growth rate accelerates and, after one year, at last, we can appreciate the graft’s final result, once all the grafted hair has sprouted correctly.
