Hair transplantation rates and detailed information

The evolution of hair transplantation is defined by the new technique of separation of hair follicles and the transfer of pores as they grow from the donor area, differentiating from the techniques to date where the hair follicles were injected in a bald surface.

The loss of hair creates, both in men and in women, a mental burden, as it is perceived as a sign of aging.

The normal number of hair loss every day is 50-100. Losing hair beyond this number is considered pathological and is customary to be defined as “hair loss”.

Strip and Micro strip method
FUE method (Follicular Unit Extraction)
Difference between FUE and Strip methods.
Strip and Micro strip method

In this method the taking of hair follicles from the donor area is in the form of a skin flap strip, which is then separated into hair follicles with the help of special microscopes.

The basic prerequisites for achieving the desired result are:

• Proper extraction and separation of hair follicles from the donor strip

• Suture of the donor area

• Preservation of hair follicles in a special solution, which ensures adequate hydration

• Creation of admissions in the recipient area for correct direction, angle and arrangement of the hair follicles

• Determination of the front line of demarcation (frontline) with single hair follicles, to achieve a natural result

• Transport and placement of hair follicles with their seed in such a way as to avoid any destruction but also to ensure the time of exit.

• Instructions for proper postoperative care

FUE method (Follicular Unit Extraction)

The specificity of this method lies in the fact that the hair follicles can be taken from different parts of the body and not necessarily from the head. The main differences between body and head hair follicles to be taken into account are the following:

• Their origins

• Skin Type

• Their depth on the skin

• The type of hair in terms of diameter and form of the

Difference between FUE and Strip methods.

The FUE method uses a cylindrical exporter, less than 1mm in diameter, in which the hair follicles are extracted from one of the donor regions and placed in the recipient area. Therefore, this method is less invasive, since there is no incision with a scalpel and no sutures are placed. Main advantages of FUE:

• Enlargement of the donor area

• Ideal for eyebrow and moustache restoration

• Ideal for patients with low degree dilution

• Ideal for people who shave or maintain very short hair

What are the causes of hair loss?

The factors that determine the development of the scalp during human life are heredity, dyeing, excessive heat when drying hair, use of unsuitable care products, thyroid diseases, scalp diseases, taking drugs, poor nutrition, stress.

Androgenetic alopecia

Androgenetic alopecia – commonly, baldness mainly detected in men and secondarily women. It only happens to people with a genetic predisposition and has a hormonal substrate. It is due to the production of 5α-dihydrotestosterone from testosterone, mediated by the enzyme 5a-reductase. The increase of 5α-dihydrotestosterone in the trichoic follicles causes inhibition of their metabolism, resulting in hair loss.

Can anyone undergo a hair transplantation?

Based on the above, it is understood that not all candidates meet the conditions for a successful hair transplantation. Statistically, the percentage reaches 20%, which is due to a disproportionately large bald surface, which cannot be covered by the existing donor area.

How will the new hair be after the procedure?

New hair never falls and retains the properties they had in their original position. Like the rest of the hair, they can undergo any kind of grooming (trimming, shampooing, dying).

How many hair can be placed in a session?

From 3,000 to 10,000 hairs, depending on the density of the donor area and the surface area we want to cover.

When can I return to my daily activities after the procedure?

As early as the next day one can return to his activities, except if the doctor suggests otherwise.

Is it possible to operate a patient who has undergone a hair transplantation before?

Yes, provided that there is still sufficient donor area.

What is a hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation is the transfer of healthy hair pockets from one area of the scalp to another.

What are the donor area selection criteria?

The area from which to take the transplant follicles (donor area) is the area of fixed hair growth, which is evaluated in “good”, “moderate or bad”, depending on the extent, the density of hair bearing and the elasticity of the skin. The relationship between the donor and the recipient area is the one that determines the final result.

Can women undergo hair transplantation?

Of course, the results are excellent in both sexes.

Is it painful?

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and is completely painless.

How long does the surgery last?

The procedure duration is about 3-4 hours.

Are there any visible scars or scars after the procedure?

No. Therein lies the ability of the qualified doctor to perform aesthetic intervention without leaving any marks.

What is the best technique for hair transplantation?
What is the best technique for hair transplantation?

The choice of the best technique is individualized according to the capabilities and needs of each candidate, and it is up to the point of view and experience of the qualified doctor. At this point, it is important to emphasise the importance of predicting further dilution in areas which do not encounter such a problem during surgery.

Taking into account all of the above, it is concluded that the achievement of the desired result is ensured by the choice of qualified, experienced doctor, who will choose the appropriate method for each case, having discussed the pros and cons of each method. In some cases, in fact, the doctor must prevent the patient from undergoing hair transplantation. It is often better to compromise with the image of baldness than to undergo an intervention that will not satisfy.
