About the procedure
Cosmetic surgery for treating baldness holds a special place in the field of aesthetic surgery and requires a well-practised and experienced team, for a maximally successful hair transplantation procedure. Our team has an experience of 15 years and we regularly follow and use the latest global trends in the field of hair transplantation.
Permanent hair roots from the back or the side of the head are transplanted onto the area of the head where the hair has fallen off – most commonly the front and top section. Hair transplantation is a very precise process nowadays; the transplanted hair grows permanently, it no longer falls off, and can be normally cut and washed.
There are multiple techniques of hair transplantation, such as STRIP grafting, FUE method, FUT method, FOLLICULAR splitting method, and the process of cloning hair roots is being researched extensively. During the first preoperative examination and scalp analysis, the surgeon will discuss and define with the patient the best method for the patient’s individual case, as well as the required number of operative phases for the best effect.
Since the hair transplantation procedure is generally performed under local anaesthesia, basic laboratory tests and a coagulogram are required, as well as stopping the acetylsalicylic therapy (aspirin etc. ) if the patient is taking it. Smokers are advised to quit smoking a couple of weeks before and after the procedure. On the day of the operation you should wash your hair. All other specific instructions will be given to you by the staff.
The hair transplantation procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, and patients can optionally be sedated for maximum comfort and relaxation during the procedure.
Depending on the applied method of HAIR TRANSPLANTATION, the surgeon and his staff will give you detailed instructions regarding the procedure at the preoperative examination.
You should avoid physical activity after the procedure, and a protective bandage can be placed on the part of the head where the transplantation was performed. After 24 hours, the bandage is removed, and the transplantation zone can be protected by wearing a cap. It is very important to avoid hitting the head for the period of 48 hours after the procedure to prevent any changes to the placed roots. Most patients return to their everyday activities 2 – 4 days after the procedure.
