Androgenic alopecia is one of the most common causes of permanent hair loss from the scalp. The condition is manifested by reduced hair regrowth, hair shaft thinning and excessive hair fall. In men, the genetic predisposition leads to hair loss from the top and frontal scalp. While in women, the hair thinning is most pronounced at the crown and the hairline is typically spared. The condition cannot be cured, but a hair transplant can help bring back a fuller head of hair in most patients.
At Clinic Dermatech, we provide both FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) techniques customized to fit individual needs and desires. We strive to create a natural-looking hairline after thorough pre-operative client counselling in alignment with realistic expectations and optimum results.
Follicular Unit Transplantation, also known as the ‘strip’ procedure, works by harvesting a linear strip bearing thousands of hair follicles in a single session. The strip is then dissected to separate the follicles. The area is closed in layers ensuring minimally visible scar.
In the Follicular Unit Extraction, follicles are collected using fine punches without removing the scalp tissue. Tiny slits or holes are created in the target area after it is cleaned, draped and numbed. Each graft is then delicately placed in these gaps. The transplanted follicles are boosted with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to ensure a 100% satisfactory outcome. FUE is an advanced technique with minimal scarring and zero-suturing.
Largely, the success of hair transplant depends upon the skill of the surgeon, graft extraction technique and post-operative care. Plastic surgeons at Clinic Dermatech adhere to the best principles of graft storage and handling. In addition, our clinic teams diligently follow up on each client to facilitate positive recovery.
The duration of a hair transplant depends on the number of hair grafted. The procedure can take between 4 to 5 hours, depending on the technique. The surgery is done under local anesthesia. The recovery time is usually less than seven days but may vary from patient to patient. Mild redness and crusting can be expected on the treated area, which generally resolves within a week or two. After approximately 6-9 months of surgery, natural looking hair transplant results can be expected.
