hair-transplant-image

After undergoing a hair transplant surgery, you will notice that a crust has started to form over each graft. The crust stays for almost between one to two weeks and falls off once the area has healed. It leaves the skin pink, which takes its original color within few days.

Hair in the area where grafting has been done usually shed about two to eight weeks after undergoing the treatment. Mostly, hair fall takes place with the crust and in some cases, it may take little longer to fall off. With few exceptions, usually, hair does not grow in the grafts for about eight to fourteen weeks after the surgery. During this time, the hair shed and new hair start to form.

When does hair start to grow to post the treatment?

Hair usually starts to grow after the twelfth week of the transplant. In some cases, they may grow as early in the eighth week. The growth of this hair is normal about half an inch per month. If hair transplantation has been done in a large area, then you can experience swelling on the forehead. This swelling typically lasts for a few days, but in few cases, it can be severe and cause puffiness around eyes. You will not feel the swelling immediately after the treatment and it will begin to rise after two to three days of undergoing the treatment. Usually, one will feel swelling after the first session and it does not reappear after the first session. Do not be worried about swelling as it is normal and temporary. It does not have any implications and does not hinder the healing process.

After a hair transplant, the patient may feel a temporary decrease in the sensitivity of the scalp.

Aftercare:

Your specialist will give advice about shampooing your scalp, use of antibiotics and return to the clinic to remove any stitches that have been applied during the procedure.

For the first night after undergoing this procedure, sleep in a semi-upright position. Use a pillow to elevate your head, it is advised to sleep in this posture for at least three days after the surgery.

Do not touch the newly grafted areas, you may experience some soreness or itchiness but touching may lead to falling out.

Avoid alcohol for at least forty-eight hours after this procedure, avoid smoking for one month. Smoking can interrupt the blood flow which is important for the growth of new hair.

Avoid sun exposure until your scalp is swollen or pink, in case you have to go out wear a hat.

If the pain is severe and you find out bleeding or infection, then contact your doctor immediately. It usually takes three to four month’s time for new hair to grow, in some cases, it can be six months also.

Male Breast Reduction Surgery – An Overview

We’ve all observed the names; “moobs,” “moobies” or “man boobs.” Regardless of what you identify them, they can be a resource of lessening self-esteem and inadequate body impression to the people who undergo from them. They genuinely are no having a laugh issue. But male breast (gynecomastia) (the scientific name for moobs) does not have to be something you have to undergo through.

Reasons of gynecomastia vary from genetics, significant weight loss, hormone changes or even the use of Cannabis.

Pubescent men may experience short-term breast augmentation due to their raging hormones, but those who take Cannabis through adolescence are at possibility of making short-term breast long lasting. Cannabis changes levels of androgenic hormone or testosterone, and taking the drugs during this developing stage can intervene with regular growth.

Though, gynecomastia in youngsters may be hormonal, specifically if the impact is unilateral, or only existing on one side. This kind of gynecomastia  will probably go away on its own.

There are some non-surgical solutions that might decrease male breast. Chest area press workouts and the slant cable fly put a higher load across the stomach than other exercises, and can help get rid of off some of that unwanted cells.
