Hair Transplant Surgery
The front hairline is a challenge in hair restoration, involving a large investment of time, regardless of the area to be covered in the entries.
This technique involves removing hairs in the form of follicular units from the occipital region of the head (the center point behind ears) for subsequent transplantation. The advantage of this technique is that the selected hair is your own, is healthy, and will grow naturally for life in the region where they have been implanted.
Thanks to modern approaches and surgical techniques employed for FFS, it is now possible to include microcapillary transplant surgery in the same week as FFS, permitting a more complete result of the upper third of the face in a short period of time.
The technique is performed in about 4 hours, under local anesthesia, completely painless and without hospitalization. The amount of transplanted hair naturally depends on the density of the donor, but in general we may transplant over 5,000 hairs per session.
Obtaining follicular units, which are the natural groupings of hair in humans (each follicular unit may contain from 1 to 4 hairs), is done with the FUS technique, which ensures maximum use of hair, with an approximate yield of 98% of the roots removed and minimal aggression to the donor. This technique is complemented with a specialized trichophytic Rose suture, which allows native hair growth through scar tissue, meaning the final scar in the donor area is virtually undetectable.
By meticulously selecting each follicular unit, micro and minigrafts are obtained which will be subsequently implemented in the target areas with the same depth, pitch and direction as the native natural hair, permitting a duplication of the natural growth pattern of each treated area. The follicular unit concept was a major advance in the field because it avoids the unpleasant effect of “doll hair” traditionally associated with former techniques. Therefore, advancing the front hairline or closing entries is obtained by a careful selection of the delicate follicular units from a single hair, accurately prepared and then transplanted with a random placement technique to achieve a more dense hairline , indistinguishable from a natural hairline at first glance.
The transplanted hair begins to grow at 3 months gradually, producing a gradual and quite natural change. The final results can be seen after one year and require no special care for subsequent maintenance.
