A gentleman had hair transplantation six months ago. The hair growth was good, but along with the new hairs growing, he is having a very high rate of hair fall from the transplanted area. He wants to know if this is a normal or serious issue.
Dr. Amiya Prasad explains that the procedure of hair transplantation where hair is placed in between existing hair can cause a situation called shock loss. The combination of swelling and trauma can put hairs in an advanced stage called the telogen phase where the follicles are not actively growing. Eventually, they fall out and after several months, they start to re-grow. In addition, genetically susceptible hairs or hairs that are easily affected by dihydrotestosterone (DHT) may also continue to fall out even after a transplant.
In Dr. Prasad’s practice, he uses a material called extracellular matrix (ECM) made by ACell and combines it with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to treat both male and female pattern hair loss. This material he calls Hair Regeneration has helped a lot of his patients around the world, particularly young people, not only treat the progression of hair loss, but reverse hair thinning. After the treatment, their hairs that looked almost gone because of the effects of DHT on hair thinning came back thicker and fuller.
A year after the treatment, if his patients want more hairs, he offers an option of hair transplantation. During the surgery, he uses the extracellular matrix treatment for advanced healing in the donor area. He also uses this material during the harvesting of the strip and the closure so that the incisions heal beautifully and so that the hair follicles that were transplanted flourish.
