The advantages of a hair transplant
- Conceal the scars of the scalp in a natural and permanent way
- Suitable for both men and women
- Works on all hair types
- Indicated in cases of scarring alopecia
YES – They come from areas of the scalp that are not sensitive to the hormone that causes alopecia. Therefore, the transplanted hair will last for the entire life of the patient.
NO – Simply because the transplanted hair comes from the patient’s own scalp.
NO – All hair transplants are done under local anesthesia, so the procedure is completely painless for the patient.
YES – Hair transplants require extracting hair follicles from the scalp and this necessarily leaves marks. However, the scars are very discreet, regardless of the technique used. For FUT grafts with long hair, the result is a one millimeter wide line, which will be covered by hair. FUE grafts, on the other hand, leave circular scars, of less than one millimeter in diameter, that are even less noticeable.
YES – Small scabs will form on the grafted area for about two weeks, but you will still be able to resume your social and professional activities the day after the procedure. However, you will have to wait three weeks before playing sports again.
YES AND NO – This will depend on the size of the scar. If your scarring alopecia affects most of your hair, you can always combine FUE and long hair FUT grafting to increase your donor area by 30%. If this is not enough, you can use reconstructive trichopigmentation to create more density. A hair system can also be considered for the most serious cases.
YES – Hair harmony is the priority of the surgeon who will choose a high hair density per square centimeter while recreating, through the orientation of the implants, the natural and aesthetic movement of the hair.
YES – Reconstructive grafting is not recommended for patients who have low hair density in the donor area.
