Sunday, 16 March 2014 01:06 AM EDT

People with partial or total baldness try various means to escape notice. Thinning or balding makes people shy and self-conscious. It is advisable to take care of your hair lest they be lost. However, if you have already lost hair or developed baldness, you can undergo restoration to help you regain lost hair and counter baldness. Hair transplant is an aesthetic surgical procedure that is increasing its effectiveness with recent advancements. It helps in lost hair restoration for people suffering from baldness by moving live hair follicles from the donor site to the recipient site under local anesthesia. Let us discuss hair restoration or follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and the cost of this exclusive hair restoration technique.
Restoration Using Follicular Unit Transplantation and Recovery

In follicular unit transplantation, the patient’s scalp is cleared and a local anesthetic injected to numb the area from where a three- to four-inch strip of healthy follicles containing scalp graft is cleared and removed. The donor site’s scalp is sewn to close the area. The prepared graft is transplanted in the recipient site for covering the bald patch from where hair is lost. About 500 to 2,000 tiny grafts are prepared, each holding individual hair. For restoring lost hair, a tiny needle punctures the numbed recipient site and creates holes into which the surgeon fixes the tiny grafts to restore lost hair.
After the procedure is over, the patient needs a long recovery period. The procedure is painful and needs painkillers and antibiotics after the surgery. A new hair grows after the transplanted hair falls out in about 2-3 weeks following the transplant. This completes the transplant process of restoration of lost hair.
Cost Involved in Lost Hair Restoration

The total cost of FUT surgery is based on the technique of hair transplant. It is extremely expensive with the total cost ranging from $4,000 to $15,000. However, one definite thing about this transplant surgery is that the restoration is a lifetime investment to restore lost hair. Its effects remain long after and unaffected. Therefore, for gaining something this certain, the cost involved is bearable.
Maintenance After a Restoration

The maintenance of new hair grown using the transplant surgery is simple, with no special principles to be followed. The care after a transplant is the same as the natural hair care process.

Restoration of lost hair or the hair transplant procedure is effective in the long run. A patient suffering from baldness can get back natural hair after a transplant surgery.
