Combined hair transplant

In this article, we intend to introduce you to the method of combined hair transplantation, but before that, we will discuss the causes of hair loss, the pattern of hair loss, the ways to treat hair loss, and finally hair transplantation, and provide you with information. Stay with us until the end of the article.

According to extensive research conducted by experts on the causes of hair loss in people, they have come to the conclusion that the common causes of hair loss in men are genetic hair loss. The genetic factor can be inherited by a person from either family, father or mother. Genetic hair loss is a disease called DHT (dihydrotestosterone). This shortening of the follicles causes thinning of the hair until it causes hair loss and as a result leads to the baldness of a part of the head.

The important point here is that most men do not recognize their hair loss at the beginning and they realize it when it is too late and they have lost part of their hair. Sometimes people go to the doctor to treat hair loss and stop it They remove the hair (of course, if it is not genetic and can be controlled), but most of the time, due to late action, a part of the head becomes bald or low back  .In this case, the best action is hair transplantation. Hair transplantation has different stages and conditions, but all hair transplantation methods are the same in the type of follicle transplantation.

In general, there are two types of hair transplant methods:

  1. Hair transplant by FUT method (strip hair transplant)
  2. Hair transplantation by FIT method (follicular harvesting). The main difference in these two planting methods is the difference in the method of harvesting hair from the hair bank area.

In the FUT method, a narrow strip 2 cm wide is removed from the back of the head between the two ears, which has the maximum number of hair follicles, and after the follicle is separated under the microscope and prepared, it is implanted in the desired area. Finally, the donor area is sutured. In the FIT method, after selecting the hair bank, which is usually at the back of the patient’s head, the follicles are removed one by one from the donor area and implanted in the bald or sparse part of the head.

Combined hair transplant:

We mentioned earlier that the difference in hair transplantation with different methods is in the way of harvesting the follicle from the donor area. In the combined method of hair transplantation, according to its name, both FIT and FUT methods will be used simultaneously in hair transplantation, and considering that it uses a new method, it can cover a large part of the bald or low back area of the patient’s head cover. One of the good advantages of this method is the removal of a large number of hair grafts in one session compared to other methods. In this method, about 5000 thousand hair grafts can be implanted in the desired area.

Combined hair transplant candidate:

Now the question arises, who is suitable for hair transplantation in a combined method? In answer to this question, it should be said that those who have a lot of baldness due to hair loss and need a lot of grafts to cover the existing bald area. Also, if it is not possible to cover the desired area with any of the methods, the combined planting method is used.

In this method, as mentioned, both fit and FUT methods are used and many grafts are harvested. As a result, the planting density in this method will be very high and natural. In this planting method, the FUT method is first used (the same strip method) and then the FIT method is used according to the remaining points.

In short, we can say:

– If more than 4,000 hair grafts are needed to cover the bald or bald area. Experts use this method because the number of grafts obtained is more than FIT and FUT methods. The combined planting method is suggested to Zibo Jo.

– For combined implantation, the applicant must not be ignorant or dissatisfied with any of the FIT and FUT methods and must agree to strip implantation or head shaving.

– At least the hair bank should be 7 to 10 cm so that 2 cm can be used for strip removal and the rest for the procedure.

– Those who cannot sleep on their stomach for a long time and suffer from asthma are not a suitable option for combined implantation.

– Those who have a small area of ​​their head falling or balding, are not good candidates for this method, because each of the FIT and FUT methods alone will be the answer to their problem.

– Those whose hair bank is 5 cm are usually not good candidates, because by doing this, they lose the chance of double transplantation by FUT method with a gap of one year.

In short, we can say:

– If more than 4,000 hair grafts are needed to cover the bald or bald area. Experts use this method because the number of grafts obtained is more than FIT and FUT methods. The combined planting method is suggested to Applicant.

– For combined implantation, the applicant must not be ignorant or dissatisfied with any of the FIT and FUT methods and must agree to strip implantation or head shaving.

– At least the hair bank should be 7 to 10 cm so that 2 cm can be used for strip removal and the rest for the procedure.

– Those who cannot sleep on their stomach for a long time and suffer from asthma are not a suitable option for combined implantation.

– Those who have a small area of ​​their head falling or balding, are not good candidates for this method, because each of the FIT and FUT methods alone will be the answer to their problem.

– Those whose hair bank is 5 cm are usually not good candidates, because by doing this, they lose the chance of double transplantation by FUT method with a gap of one year.

The benefit of hair transplantation in a combined method:

The following can be mentioned from The benefit of hair transplantation in a combined method:

1- This method is very useful for those who have a lot of baldness

2- Due to the fact that they take the least amount of time for the operation, the best result is achieved.

3- Receiving more than the size of the graft for planting, which will be about 3000 to 9000 follicles or strands of hair.

4- Having a more natural appearance than other planting methods

Disadvantages of mod in combined hair transplant method:

One of the disadvantages of implanting with the combined method is the same problem with FUT method. That is, the scar remains due to the strip removal of the graft and wound healing in this way. But there is nothing to worry about because the wounds heal very quickly and so does the scar. If it remains, it will be covered by the hair around the scar, or some strands of hair can be planted on the scar to solve this problem.

Hair transplant cost:

In the combined hair transplant method, the costs will vary depending on the number of grafts used for transplanting in the bald area. That is, the higher the number of grafts required, the higher the cost of hair transplant. Determining the amount of the cost is determined by a consultation made by a specialist doctor. In addition to the cost of implantation, it includes pre-implantation costs such as required tests as well as post-implantation costs such as the cost of drugs prescribed by the doctor.

Finally, it is better to know which doctor is suitable for combined hair transplantation:

The doctor who is chosen for combined hair transplantation must have full skill and expertise in both FUT and FIT implantation methods and be familiar with their possible complications in order to perform this method in the best possible way.

It is very important to have a history of implantation in this method because one must have seen the results of previous FUT and FIT implantations in order to be able to combine these two methods together. It is very important that the doctor has complete expertise in the FUT method. The remaining scar resulting from the FUT cut should not be widened, because the scar will be more visible due to hair removal by the FIT method.

Also, it is very important to be delicate so as not to damage the follicles or change their direction during implantation.
