HAIR TRANSPLANT

Surgery

Planning

During the planning stage these variables must be taken into account:
 

  • The receiver area (bald area) is analyzed as well as the capacity of the donor area (normal growing hair) to service this area. In pronounced bald areas, normally three steps (treatments) are necessary to provide a thickness equal to a non-balding area.

  • An analysis will be made to determine what the projected need for replacement surgeries could be in the future.
     

Example: If a thirty-five year old man may need a simple small amount of hair replacement today, great care is taken to ensure that if he will require an additional surgery when he if Fifty that this reserve is maintained.
The truth is that you can only replace hair that is already lost so hair that is genetically programmed to fall out at age Forty must be corrected after age Forty when the hair follicle is gone.

 

  • The donor’s area density in terms of number of hairs per square centimeter.

  • Type of donor hair (straight, curly) and how it matches the receiver area’s hair.

  • Diameter of hair : thick or thin.

  • Thickness of scalp.

  • Color of hair : black, brown, blond, gray or white.

  • Elasticity of the scalp.

  • Analysis of the normal hair growing cycle.

After studying the elements above, the team designs a plan that best fits the client. The transplanted hair starts to grow naturally after about ninety days. It will continue to grow about one centimeter a month for the rest of your life. After eight months from the initial surgery, a second surgery may then be scheduled in order to thicken up a once completely bald area if necessary.

Technique

The surgery is performed using a local anesthetic plus a mild sedative. The procedure usually takes 5-6 hours to transplant 6,000 hairs to their new location. No bleeding, pain or discomfort is experienced from clients during the surgery. The patient sleeps during the surgery but may wake from time to time to stretch or have a glass of water.

 

Most clients say the hair transplant experience feels like taking a twenty-minute nap and waking up refreshed. After the surgery, the client is free to go home without a need for further medical assistance. Because the client may still feel a little sleepy from the sedative it is the Medical Group’s policy to insist the client does not operate a car or machinery until the next day though.

All surgery is performed using a binocular magnifying lens, which allow better visualization of the delicate follicular units. The hairs are placed as close together as possible. Only state of the art equipment and the follicular technique are used.

Advantages

Advantages of using the follicular hair transplantation technique:

 

  • There is never a deformity of the skin surface.

  • The hair grows naturally on a smooth scalp. Other techniques produce a bumpy choppy surface, which will annoy the client every time he combs his hair.

  • Provides better hair follicle oxygenation that ensures healthy growing hair.

  • Can place hair follicles densely together with extreme precision to consistently produce a “NO EXCUSES” natural appearance.

  • Can place 6,000 hairs in one session.

  • Faster post-operative recovery. Many receive the surgery on a Friday and go back to work on Monday without anyone every knowing.

  • More natural hair distribution. If you didn’t tell a barber that you had transplant surgery, he would never know.

  • There is no bleeding due to the delicacy of the techniques employed.

  • The client can look forward to a tranquil recovery with no pain.

  • The hair can be washed the next day and the client can go back to work and resume a normal life.

Soon, signs of new hair growth will occur. Once the grows starts (in about ninety days) clients report that everyday thereafter is like Christmas as they awake to see their new hair growth start cover areas that once took away their self esteem, confidence and visual appearance.
 

Many say that they feel young again because the vision they see in the mirror is a reinforcement that they are. Many also say that they are treated with more respect and are taken more seriously then they were before their surgery.
