Why is hair transplantation performed?

Today, hair transplantation is one of the few solutions available for those suffering from androgenetic alopecia.

Medicines like finasteride and minoxidil can lead to improvement, but only in the presence of still vital follicles.

Since the transplanted bulbs retain the characteristics of the donor area, genetically resistant to alopecia, transplantation can be considered a definitive treatment. However it can not act on the primary causes of alopecia.

Planting techniques

Until a few years ago the operation consisted in the removal of a strip of scalp from the occipital area. This was then dissected under the microscope and transferred to the receiving area in the form of micro-grafts.

However, this technique had limitations: scars in the donor area, post-operative pains and loss of sensitivity.

Recently, new transplantation techniques have been developed, based on the picking and grafting of individual bulbs. This technique makes use of the aid of special instruments, which extract single follicular units, which can contain from one to four hair bulbs.

This technique, called FUE (“Follicular Unit Extraction”), has evolved over time in the “Micro FUE”, which uses even smaller instruments to make the transplant less invasive.

Today more attention is given to the hair’s direction and arrangement than in the past, in order to obtain a natural result.

Today the result of hair transplantation performed with the Micro FUE technique is extremely natural and is free from heavy postoperative problems or scars.

For these reasons today hair transplantation performed by experts is an effective and minimally invasive solution.

The surgery

Hair transplantation is performed under local anesthesia. Thanks to the techniques used it is not painful and the side effects are limited. The professionalism and experience of a qualified expert allow you to customize the result to the utmost, the quality of which also depends on an accurate pre-surgical visit.
