HAIR TRANSPLANT TECHNIQUES
FUE Hair Transplant process
Follicular Unit Extraction is a procedure in which follicular unit grafts (hair follicles) are individually removed from the back of the head (donor area ) and restored to your bald spot (recipient areas). The surgeons we work with believe that FUE is the best and most effective hair transplant technique in terms of natural results.
However, its success rate is not high everywhere. Unfortunately, some clinics want to follow the trend of offering hair transplant services and open new business opportunities. Therefore, it is important for us to control the technique of the clinics to ensure our patient a safe and successful hair transplant.
No shave / partial shave Hair Transplant
No shave FUE
Many patients change their mind about a hair transplant surgery when they know that it is a must to have their hair cut.
No shave FUE requires shaving a small part of the donor area. The rest of the hair will cover the small shaved donor area. Therefore, this technique cannot exceed 1500 grafts implantation otherwise shaving is required.
Partial Shave FUE
Partial Shave FUE does not require to shave the whole hair. The donor area is fully shaved but the rest of the hair will remain unshaved to help the patient hide the scars of the hair transplant surgery.
Patients can implant up to 3000 Grafts per day with the Partial FUE Shave Method.
Classic FUE requires a full hair shave for the doctor to be able to extract and implant the grafts in the best way possible, patients can implant up to 4000 grafts per day.
Our surgeon recommends you to have the Classic FUE surgery for best results but the other techniques can be discussed on a case by case basis.
Beard transplant is a procedure which restores hair to areas where facial hair growth is thin or missing.
While this procedure is most commonly performed on the goatee and moustache areas, it can also be performed on beards, sideburns and cheeks. Facial hair transplants can also be used to conceal acne scars and other types of scars.
Loss of facial hair may occur for a number of reasons. It can be the result of genetics, laser hair removal, electrolysis, surgery, burns or injury.
Goals for this procedure can vary from a minor filling in or thin coverage of a limited area, to the full restoration of a thick, full goatee or beard. The procedure can be performed on areas where there is no hair or on areas where hair growth is thin and more fullness is desired.
The beard hair grafts come from the same donor area as for a hair transplant (back of the head).
DHI Hair Transplant
Direct Hair Implantation is made to minimize the period of time where the graft is extruded from the back side of the head until it is implanted to the baldness area for the extruded grafts from the donor area for transplantation. The channel opening and graft implantation (step 5 and 6) are done in one step thanks to the choi-implanter pen.
This technique appeared in year 2016 and most of our recommended surgeons prefer to use FUE method because of their long term experience and success with it.
