In the simplest terms, Hair Transplant is the surgery in which hair is removed from the donor zone in the back of your head, where your hair is genetically programmed to grow for life and is transplanted into the balding and thinning areas of your scalp. Advanced Hair Transplant is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia. Our doctors plan the surgery in advance, by carefully considering the stage of your hair loss, your goals and expectations. There is a step-by-step process for Hair Transplants, with the biggest difference being the choice of the donor hair harvesting technique. At Clinic Dermatech, we offer both FUT Strip Harvest and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedures. Our doctors suggest and perform the technique that is best suited to you, based on factors such as your age and the hair density in the donor area.
FUT Strip Harvesting in which a strip of tissue is removed from your donor zone and then dissected into follicular units of 1 – 4 hair.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) in which grafts are harvested individually from the donor area and then trimmed under the microscope.
The decision to have cosmetic surgery is a very personal one. A person can go through a varied gamut of emotions from pre-consultation jitters to post-surgery blues to elation. If you have a ‘big appearance’ date in mind, schedule your visit to Clinic Dermatech six months or a year in advance. Depending on the procedure/s chosen, results can either be immediate or take up to a year to fully show.
Disclaimer : Results may vary from person to person depending on factors, such as; skin type, skin sensitivity, complexion and follow up of treatment and precautions taken before and after treatment.
