Hair surgery has been used since the 1950s to correct alopecia. There are several solutions available to normalize hair loss and stimulate hair growth.
Sometimes, however, alopecia may be too advanced or even irreversible, and a treatment may be ineffective. In these cases, hair transplants can redensify the scalp in a natural and permanent way.

The different hair transplant techniques

FUE grafts with partial shaving

This is the most recent hair transplant technique. It is recommended for small and medium alopecia. The surgeon uses a micro-punch rather than a scalpel to extract the hair follicles from the donor area. It is less invasive than other techniques. However, it requires shaving the donor area. 1,000 to 1,500 grafts can be extracted.

FUE grafts without shaving

This technique of hair transplantation is recommended for patients with mild baldness. As with other FUE techniques, the surgeon uses a micro-punch to extract hair follicles from the donor area. In this case, the patient does not shave his head. However, only 800 to 1,000 grafts can be extracted.

FUL grafts without shaving (FUT long hair)

This method, also known as strip harvesting, is particularly recommended for patients with medium hair density. It allows up to 1,500 to 2,000 grafts to be extracted in a single session and requires no prior shaving. The only drawback is that it can result in a fine, linear scar (one millimeter wide) that is often invisible to the naked eye.

FUE grafts with total shaving

If the patient suffers from more severe baldness, he or she may decide to undergo a full shave FUE transplant. This technique allows the extraction of between 2,000 and 2,500 hair follicles in a single session. The main constraint is that it requires a complete shaving of the hair – both the donor and recipient areas.

Hair transplants for frizzy hair

Frizzy hair has certain properties that distinguish it from wavy or straight hair. Consequently, the transplant of Afro hair involves using a special technique that involves preparing  grafts in follicular units of 2 to 4 hairs rather than in micrografts of a single hair. The curvature of the roots forces us to cut the grafts under microscope (FUT with long hair – without shaving).

Asian Hair Transplants

Some Asian patients also suffer from alopecia, and in more advanced cases, the only way to correct baldness is with a hair transplant.
