Is there any role of medicines in baldness?

The role of medicine in hair loss has been said temporary because the hairs which have destiny to fall will fall ultimately because of their genetic programming. Though the drugs have been said useful to decrease the hair fall and increase the density but once the use is stopped, the effect vanishes. But the role of medicines has been established by promoting growth of the transplanted hair after hair transplant. This is said to be helpful in two ways.

  1. The transplanted hair are said to be permanent and once the medicine promote and expedite the growth of these hairs; the resultant growth is early and permanent.
  2. The existing hair will increase in density buy viagra generica with these medicines, thus supporting the density of transplanted hair and amply contributing to change, enhanced look after hair transplant.

There are 2 medicines whose role is established for this.

  1. Minoxidil – used as a local(topical) application works primarily by increasing blow flow. Nowadays combinationof  Minoxidil and Aminexil is being claimed to decrease fibrosis and maintain the growth potential.
  2. Finasteride– reduces hair loss, and is said to be more useful in younger population. Studies have shown that it requires at least 6 months to 1 year for some significant improvement to be seen from the use of finasteride.

With the advent of micro follicular hair transplant technique, these techniques  nowadays are being considered as of  historical interest. In these techniques the bald area is removed surgically and adjacent hair bearing area is moved using skin laxity. In some cases the hair bearing skin is increased in online canadian pharmacy size by putting tissue expanders (balloons) under it; and this is used to replace the bald areas.

These techniques though considered history, still are useful in select group like–

Localized bad/thin scar over head, where the transplanted hair will not grow due to lack of proper blood supply. In these cases the scar can be excised in one or multiple stages and can be replaced with adjacent hair bearing area giving instant natural results with practically insignificant scarring. This also involves skills of a cosmetic surgeon.

Classification of male pattern baldness?

The first attempts to classify patterns of baldness were described by Beck in 1950 in male white patients, canadian discount viagra online and in 1951 by Hamilton who analyzed hair loss patterns in both white and Chinese patients. Later Norwood in 1975 suggested modification of Hamilton’s classification, dividing the pattern into 7 groups as shown in figure

Why we become bald?

The most common type of hair loss in both men and women is referred to as “Androgenic alopecia” or Male Pattern Baldness (MPB).

Research has shown that it is hereditary/genetically predetermined process, which responds to external stimuli, essentially male hormones. Testosterone is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by an enzyme 5α reductase. It is DHT that acts on hair follicles in the regions which are susceptible to androgenic alopecia. It appears that androgenic alopecia is under the control of a single dominant sex linked autosomal gene.

Nowadays the onset of baldness occurs at much early age than in father. This probably suggests role of many other factors in addition to genetics. The stressful competitive life style and altered dietary habits have been blamed for this.

The follicles in the affected areas gradually shrink, resulting in fine and lighter growth, ultimately this leads to complete cessation of growth of hair.

For men, viagra tablet weight the baldness follows a specific pattern. Even in advanced cases of baldness, it is rare for most men to lose the area in back and sides of scalp (horseshoe hair bearing area) (figure 5). This is because the hair in these areas are genetically said to be resistant to the balding effect of male hormone that is they will remain unaffected permanently. This is called donor dominance

Donor dominance means the hairs retain the characteristic feature of being resistant to balding effect of male hormones even after they have been transplanted to the new (recipient) site.

Hair transplant has become now valid and established due to this trait of hair, giving permanent and natural results.

What is follicular unit/follicular graft/hair graft?

Owing to latest advances in microsurgery, whole of discussion of hair transplantation now revolves around micrografts, more specifically in current nomenclature, follicular grafts.

In the early years of Hair transplant, the graft was obtained with round large punches (often 3.5 to 5 mm or more in diameter). The obvious draw back was that this caused an unnatural appearance when these large plugs with multiple hairs were placed into recipient holes (appearance of bushes). On detailed evaluation it has been found that there is a natural clustering of two to three/four follicles together in units.  This naturally occuring clusters of one to four hair follicles is called follicular unit/follicular graft/hair graft. Micrografts contain 1-2 hairs and minigrafts contain 2-4 hair and both micro/mini grafts in current terminology are defined as follicular units.

By maintaining these follicular units during procedure, it is clear that we get maximum number of hairs developing from each graft, thus preserving the natural/normal structure and giving the best results. By use of magnification, it is possible for assistants preparing the grafts to meticulously define these follicular units.

Graft preparation is a key component for successful hair transplant. If the grafts are not properly prepared and well handled, the potential success of these grafts gets compromised. Successful hair transplant requires a team of assistants who meticulously cut grafts of high quality and of appropriate dimensions. viagra australia At ‘Olmec’ we have been able to develop a special hair transplant wing owing to this dedicated team which constantly thrives to achieve best results of international stand.

What is better Strip method or Follicular unit extraction?

Studies say that STRIP method is still the number one choice for hair transplant, because of excellent maximum density achieved that too with little compromise of a hair line scar which becomes practically invisible over the time in most of the patients. Weighing the benefits of strip method with almost 100 % success rate, the compromise of this very fine scar (that too becomes invisible due to growth of hairs through this line in most of the patients) is really negligible.

This method requires well equipped center with skilled plastic surgeon; who owing to the nature of plastic/micro surgical specialty can perform it with utmost care. In this method the highest number of follicles can be harvested (according to size of strip as per need, a strip as long as 20 cm and as wide as 3 cm can be harvested) and that too leaving the area adjacent to strip untouched thus maintaining normal density adjacent to the closure line. This uses the elastic/stretchable property of skin, and viagra sale usa after strip harvesting the wound is closed primarily giving natural look.

There is no wound or gap visible. The whole process is done under direct vision keeping the roots visible maintaining the highest quality of grafts ensuring complete success of grafts without any damage to the grafts (each and every graft is valuable in bald patient, it is hair bank).

In follicular unit extraction method inserting the punch is little blind technique and there are chances (though very low in experienced hands) of damage to follicles owing to vibration energy of punch and chance of transection of roots due to different angulations of hair roots. Moreover we need larger donor area and to get about 2500 follicles or so we need to span whole of back of head (to maintain sufficient left over density on donor site). In this way the highest number of available follicles is lesser as compared to STRIP method. Moreover second or subsequent stages lead to further decrease in density in the donor site in follicular unit extraction method as multiple punch holes lead to scarring over larger area (In strip method it is localized along a single line and adjacent hair density remains untouched).

But we cannot ignore the utility of follicular unit extraction method.

This is good choice for a certain group like–

For those who need smaller sessions; or need donor sites other than head (like moustaches, beard, chest, thighs, abdomen etc.). Moreover this is a very good supplement to strip method in subsequent stages. There are patients in which combined techniques can be done.

What is Negroid hair (ebony hair)?

In Pakistan population the visible density is viagra drug interactions much more owing to curly hair. The shaft and roots are curly (banana shaped roots)

Number of hair follicles is less per square cm, even then the density looks great owing to curliness.

So requirement of hair follicles is usually less to get good results.

The utmost care is mandatory during separation of hairs in this population. FUE technique leads to more damage to hair grafts (owing to curliness of hair, straight punches are more likely to cut the roots).

Still the recommended technique is strip method in Pakistan hairs.

Team has wide experience in negroid/ebony hair. Meticulous strip harvesting and meticulous root separation is required to save their curly roots.
