Hair transplantation

Hair transplantation returns not only your hair, but also what you have lost - the first and foremost - your self-esteem.

It is estimated that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 4 women show significant hair thinning up to 50 years of age. Hair begins to fall due to hereditary predisposition (androgenic type of alopecia), which leads to thinning of the scalp hair. Very often, the phenomenon begins at the end of puberty and develops very quickly, greatly influencing the fragile self-esteem, as the hair loss has a strong psychological impact.

Hair transplantation is the only medical solution for re-thickening hair in the zones of thinning. The result is obtained by taking the hair follicles from the back of the head and implanting in the diluted areas. This is the only treatment that with a sophisticated method of follicular unit extraction (FUE) can provide a consistent and natural result, painless, without scars, without side effects.

Methods for Hair Transplantation


Hair transplant with Trichoscopically controlled method


Bellissimo hair clinic offers the most advanced method "Trichoscopically controlled FUE", which is based on the study of trichoscopy and provides:

• maximum utilization of the donor area (extraction zone of hair follicles)

• optimal coverage of the thinned areas

• excellent planning of the front hairline

• increasing the vitality and quality of the grafts (transported hair follicles)

• reviving all grafts

Stages of the Trichoscopically controlled FUE method

Trichoscopic study

Trichoscopy is the first necessary step in assessing the characteristics of the scalp. An assessment is made of the extent of the donor area that can be used and of the coverage needs in the diluted areas.

Hair transplant planning

Based on the trichoscopic study and after determining the number of hair follicles available for transplantation, their distribution is planned in the thinned areas to achieve the best aesthetic result.

Performing the hair transplant

The transplantation process begins with the preparation of individual hair follicles from the donor area. The instruments used have a diameter of less than one millimeter (about 0.6 millimeters). It is exactly as much as necessary to remove the hair follicles from the surrounding tissues without harming the donor area or endangering the survival of the hair follicles themselves. The vitality of the hair follicles is further enhanced by the modern PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) method as grafts are kept in an enriched plasma solution until implanted in the diluted areas. Through this method they are strengthened for the purpose of their implantation and enrichment. Once removed from the hair follicles, they are to be implanted in the thinned areas, always at the correct depth and with the right angle and direction so that the end result is absolutely natural.

Comparative trichoscopic study

Upon completion of the hair transplantation, periodic repetition of the scan is performed, allowing detailed examination and detection of changes in treated areas with statistical measurements and comparative imaging "before" and "after". It is also possible to reassess the number and density of hairs and hair follicles in the diluted areas. The result of the hair transplant looks complete after 12 months.

FUE Method


Today, in our clinic, we apply the Automatic F.U.E. Technique, without incision and stitching. The use of the latest automated micro-engine allows more transplants to be extracted for less time and especially with zero loss of follicular injury!

Using a microscope, we always remove each hairy stable growth follicle from the donor area one after the other, and then transfer it and place it intact in the cured zone. With this method we avoid surgical removal of the graft from the back of the head. This technique is applied in appropriate circumstances after detailed information. It is indicated as a basic method for hair transplantation, as well as in case of additional thickening or covering of small traumatic areas.

FUT Method and Micro Strip Tech


This is the oldest hair transplant procedure, but it is developed with the latest technical applications.
In the FUT (strip) method, the doctor removes a strip of tissue from the donor area (permanent hair area) located at the back and on the sides of the scalp. This strip is split into separate hair follicles. At the same time, the plastic surgeon places each hair follicle individually depending on past and future hair loss. The result will be completely natural and the aesthetic appearance of the visitor - impressive. The advantage of this technique is the large number of hair follicles that provides us with the donor area so that a large portion of the thinned area is covered.

Micro Strip Technique


This is the latest and most impressive evolution of the Mega Strip as it caters to all those who are undergoing hair transplantation, because with this technique we can place 10,000 hairs with even a single plan, a number that gives remarkable results even for advanced hair loss. The great advantage of the Micro Strip technique compared to the classic Strip is the invisible incision after grafting.

Stages of Hair Transplantation

Extraction

The hair follicles are selected and extracted one by one from the back of the head using a specially designed disposable instrument with a diameter of 1 mm or less. These hair follicles are genetically engineered so that they do not fall apart and grow throughout their lives. These properties are preserved after implantation.
Storage

The extracted hair follicles are stored at a specific temperature and in a special solution that increases their growth after insertion. We do not separate, cut, or generally do not process grafts to avoid any risk.
Placement

The hair follicles are implanted directly into the area suffering from hair loss using DHI Implanter, without the need for the creation of holes or slits to provide a completely natural effect.

Frequently Asked Questions



1. What do we mean by hair loss?

The normal number of hair that can be lost every day is 50 to 100 hairs. Any loss of hair above this number is considered pathological and is usually called "hair loss."

2. What are the causes of hair loss?

The factors determining the development of the scalp during human life are mainly heredity (parental and maternal genes), external causes (excessive friction, use of chemicals such as paint, excessive heat on hair drying, use of inappropriate hygiene products and maintenance) , disorders (e.g., thyroid abnormalities), scalp skin diseases, medication, poor diet, stress.

3. What is androgenic alopecia?

Androgenic alopecia - generally accepted as baldness - affects mainly men and secondly women. It occurs only in people with genetic predisposition and has a hormonal substrate. It is due to the production of 5α-dihydrotestosterone by testosterone mediated by the enzyme 5α-reductase. Increasing 5α-dihydrotestosterone in hair follicles causes inhibition of their metabolism leading to hair loss.

4. What is hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation is the transfer of healthy hair follicles from one area of the scalp to another showing some degree of hair thinning. The hair can be carried along the head and other parts of the body (e.g. eyebrows).

5. How is the area from which the follicles are taken?

To understand the principle of hair transplantation, we need to explain the concept of stable and changing hair growth. People who are genetically predisposed to developing androgenetic alopecia have a hair growth zone (back and side of the head) that will always be covered with hairs, and a zone of varying hair growth that at some point will showed a different degree of hair thinning. The area from which the transplant follicle (donor area) will be obtained is the area of stable hair growth which is assessed as good, moderate or poor according to the area, the frequency of the hairs found there and the elasticity of the skin. The link between the donor and the receiving area is the one that determines the end result.

6. Can anyone undergo a hair transplant?

Based on the above, it is understood that not all candidates meet the requirements for successful hair transplantation. Statistically, this figure reaches 20% and is due to the disproportionate large balding area that cannot be covered by the existing donor area.

7. Does hair transplantation also apply to women?

Naturally, the results are excellent for both sexes.

8. What will be the new hair after the transplant?

New hairs do not fall and retain the properties they had in their original place. They can also be subjected to any kind of treatment (trimming, washing, dyeing), just like the rest of the hair.

9. Is the transplant process painful?

The process is done with a local anesthetic (or full, if deemed necessary) and is completely painless.

10. Is there a season of the year that is more suitable for hair transplantation?

No. There is no limit to this.

11. How many hairs can be placed per session?

From 3,000 to 10,000 hairs depending on the density of the donor area and the size of the surface we want to cover.

12. How long does the procedure continue?

The usual duration is from 4 to 8 hours.

13. When can I return to my usual post-transplant activities?

The next day, one can return to his or her activity, following, of course, the advice of his doctor.

14. Are there visible traces or scars after the transplant?

No. This is guaranteed by the skills of a specialist who performs aesthetic intervention without leaving any scars.

15. Is it possible to re-intervene in a patient who has had a hair transplant in the past?

Yes, provided there is still enough donor area.

16. What is the best technique for hair transplantation?

The choice of the best technique is tailored to the needs and needs of the individual applicant and depends on the judgment and experience of the specialist in order to achieve the best possible result. At this point, it is important to emphasize the importance of anticipating further dilution in areas that are not diluted during the intervention phase.
