Not too long ago, people used to consider hair loss as a permanent problem with no solution existing on planet earth.There were several speculations about the reasons for hair fall along with a variety of solutions but hardly any of those proved to be handy.
Many people used to put on wigs but that was rather next to making fun of yourself because one could easily judge something artificial being put over the head. For this reason, this never proved to be a solution to baldness and would often result in embarrassment. Besides, there were some who used to keep head hairs shaved off.
Keeping in view that need is the mother of invention, so the very thought of restoring hairs carried on to the invention of hair pieces. These were natural hairs that were attached to a very thin artificial scalp. According to the bald area, the piece used to be attached to the scalp with the help of special glue which would keep it fix for about 4 to 6 weeks. However, after a period of 3 to 4 years, the hair piece would start losing its grip.
Although the invention of hair pieces did prove to make some impression for people who had fallen victims of hair loss but there was nothing like regrowth unless the surgical hair transplant made its way to the world of cosmetic surgery. This was actually transplantation hair that focused on removal of hairs from that area of the scalp which remains unaffected despite complete hair loss. The hairs removed are grafted into the hairless area of the scalp, which start growing naturally later on.
The conventional method of transplantation hair chiefly involved removal of hairs from the back of the head in the form of a strip from the scalp. Although this method yielded very good results but it would often leave a permanent scar on the scalp. With the passage of time there was more improvement in this type of surgery leading to invention of Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE transplant. This technique involved hair removal from the scalp one by one without any cuts or stitches.
Nowadays, it may not be wrong to say that hair transplant is certainly one of the most performed surgeries in the world and FUE transplant getting remarkable popularity. Nevertheless, the miracles of cosmetic surgery are not restricted to transplantation hair but there are many improvements that can be made. Those teenagers and young adults, who have been desperately looking for treatments acne scars can now get a spotless smooth skin through laser skin treatment and several other effective cosmetic surgery procedures.
