A hair transplant, hair transplant, or hair implant, is one of the most used minimally invasive surgeries and in turn more effective in treating alopecia. The surgery involves removing hairs (hair follicles) from a part of the head that has not suffered alopecia and is implanted to another part of the head where there is baldness.
This is a very effective surgical procedure, it is permanent for a lifetime. There is no risk of the implanted follicles falling off.But it is a long process since all the hairs must be implanted one by one.
Therefore, we recommend all our patients with baldness (alopecia) that needs a definitive solution. To them, we recommend that you get a hair implant.
The hair implant is the last line of treatment for alopecia.
It has benefits as it is a definitive implant, your hair will never fall again.
The treatment with creams, lotions and pills is more expensive in the long term. That’s why a definitive solution like the implant is better.
The transplant of hair is very natural, hair is harvested equal to those you already had.
There are 2 techniques : the technique in STRIP that pulls out a long strip of skin with hair leaving a scar on the back of the neck or the FUE technique that removes the hairs one by one and leaves no scar.
After performing the capillary micrografting, this can last according to the extent of baldness in the patient.
|Front entrances||6 to 12 hours|
|Frontal entries plus parietal region||12 to 24 hours. This procedure must be done in 2 days.|
|Frontal entries plus parietal region and crown||24 to 48. It is advised to perform the procedure in 4 different sessions.|
It is a long surgery, because it is possible that it is necessary to implant 1000, 2000, 3000 up to 4000 hair follicles in a single day, so it requires several professionals to make this procedure efficient. During the procedure you will see a movie or you can talk with the surgical team to make your stay more enjoyable.
We performed the TIRA technique and the FUE technique.
Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon César Fernández removes the hair follicles from your donor area without baldness.
Then a surgical instrumenter separates the hair follicles according to the number of hairs that each hair follicle has, that is to say of 1, 2 or 3 hairs.
After the Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon César Fernández with the help of the instrumentadoras implanted each hair follicle in the alopecia zone one by one. That’s why it’s a delayed surgery.
When you go to your house, you should rest and rest with the headboard raised.
The FUE hair transplant (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a technique whose function is to transplant follicular units from the donor area to the recipient area. These areas are those that suffer alopecia and need to be covered by new hair. The FUE technique is carried out with a micrografting procedure of the hair follicle. The FUE technique allows treating the problem of alopecia in both men and women, and is also designed for patients of all ages as long as they meet the requirements.
The FUE technique consists in removing follicular units that can contain between 1 to 3 hairs per follicle.
The anesthesia performed is local anesthesia.
The FUE method of hair transplantation is an option superior to others for no other scar, although it could be a little longer since it is necessary to know the follicles one by one.
The effects of permanent hair grafting will never fall again. The body will not reject the capillary implant because it was taken from the patient.
The first 2 to 3 days you will feel pain in the implanted area of the scalp.
The implanted hair graft technique takes several months to integrate. After 6 to 9 months the new hairs will appear. After the ninth month all hairs will be completely implanted, at this moment, the final form of our successful surgery will be seen.
No one will notice your hair implant. The growth is progressive. They will grow that your hair appeared beautifully.
