WHAT IS HAIR TRANSPLANT
Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that involves moving individual hair follicles from one part of the body (the donor site) to bald or balding parts (the recipient site).
Whatever the causes, hair loss is a painful experience.
The process of hair transplantation is done under local anaesthesia in an outpatient visit.
HAIR TRANSPLANT BY F.U.E TECHNIQUE
FUE (follicular unit extraction) this micro removal uses tiny punches of between 0.6mm and 1.25mm in diameter. Each follicle is then reinserted back in to the scalp in the thinning area using a micro blade. Because individual follicles are removed, only small, punctuate scars remain and any post-surgical pain is minimized. As no suture removal is required, recovery from FUE is within 7 days.
- Short recovery time of less than one week
- Minimal discomfort, pain or swelling
- For both women and men
AFTER THE PROCEDURE
The vulnerable recipient area must be shielded from the sun, and shampooing is started two days after the surgery. Shampooing is important to prevent scabs from occurring around the hair shaft. Scabs adhere to the hair shaft and increase the risk of losing newly transplanted hair follicles during the first 7 to 10 days post-op.
During the first ten days, virtually all of the transplanted hairs, inevitably traumatized by their relocation, will fall out. New hair will begin to grow between nine to fifteen months from the moved follicles. Any subsequent hair loss is likely to be only from untreated areas.
The result of the hair transplant is permanent on the treated area.
