How does hair transplant work?
A hair transplant is a procedure in which a plastic or dermatological surgeon moves hair to a bald area of the head. The surgeon usually moves hair from the back or side of the head to the front or top of the head.
Hair transplants typically occur in a medical office under local. anesthesia and is between 4 and 8 hours.
A hair transplant takes hair you have and transfers it to an area where you don’t have hair. It’s typically taken from the back of your head, but can also be taken from other parts of your body.
Before starting a transplant, your surgeon sterilizes the area where the hair will be removed and numbs it with a local anesthetic. You can also request sedation in order to stay asleep for the procedure.
Receiving a hair transplant can improve your appearance and self-confidence. Good candidates for a hair transplant include:
men with male pattern baldness
women with thinning hair
anyone who has lost some hair from a burn or scalp injury
Hair replacement isn’t a good option for:
women with a widespread pattern of hair loss throughout the scalp
people who don’t have enough “donor” hair sites from which to remove hair for transplant
people who form keloid scars (thick, fibrous scars) after injury or surgery
people whose hair loss is due to medication such as chemotherapy
Planning: At this stage, the doctor conducts an examination. Examines a photo of the patient before hair loss. Draws a line of hair. Determines from which donor areas to take grafts and in what quantity.
Extraction of donor hair: Donor hair is extracted with a special FUE tool. His task is to make a U-shaped incision around the hair so that it can be easily removed without damaging the follicles.
Preparation of grafts: Clinic specialists clean the hair follicles under. microscope. Parts of the skin are removed so that the follicle is clean and ready for transplantation.
Opening channels: To insert grafts into the scalp, you need to open the channels - make microscopic funnels the size of the hair itself. The channels are opened with sapphire micro blades.
Implantation of grafts into the skin: The final stage is the implantation of hair into the skin of the patient. This is done in two possible ways: using tweezers or using an implanter pen (DHI method).
