What is hair transplant?

Pick hair from the back pillow for transplant

The sides of the ear and the back of the head are different from the top of the head. The forehead and top of the head will be bald over time, but the hair of the back pillow will not lose hair. Follow us with strong vitality; therefore, we can transplant the hair of the back pillow to the forehead to relieve baldness.

Hair transplants should vary from patient to patient

Should be based on the patient's age, degree of hair loss, speed of hair loss, social stressful state, facial contours, pattern of the brain, thickness of the scalp, thickness of hair, depth of hair follicles, response to drug therapy, expected progress of baldness. Wait for a thorough consideration before undergoing surgery. Patients' methods differ slightly from those of hair transplant designers. Just like tailoring, the corresponding surgery should be performed according to different patients for better results.

Types of hair transplant

FUT Hair Technology

IPS 'Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) is a high beam number hair transplant technology, also known as STRIP. The doctor first removed a 0.5-cm-thick epidermal layer of healthy hair follicles from the posterior pillow, and then sutured the wound tightly. The removed cortical tissue was divided into a graft under a high-power microscope, and then a small hole with a depth of 0.5 cm was punched with a young needle at the site to be implanted. Hair follicle was placed into the small hole. The advantage of FUT is that the damage rate of the hair follicle is low, which is suitable for transplantation with a large area of hair loss. It can easily cope with more than 3,500 bundles of hair follicles. It starts to grow new hair in four months, and the result is ideal.

  • There is no need to shave your head for planting hairpins, you can quickly go to work or exercise, even if you do hair transplantation in the morning, you can directly return to work in the afternoon.
  • Our hospital has male hair loss and female hairline.

Transplant only healthy permanent scalp

Choose healthy, permanent hair follicles only within specific safety limits to ensure long-lasting results.

Natural effect

Hair does not grow in a single direction, especially when it is turned near the top of the head, it will become a vortex. Some people have two turns on the top. FUT requires that implanted hair follicles conform to the direction of the original hair. Because of manual operation, the direction, depth, and angle of the implant should be flexibly adjusted according to the individual's hair characteristics, it makes the effect natural.

Reduce surgery costs

The cost of implantation depends on the number of hair follicles. In conjunction with Dr. Scalp's AGA treatment, the survival rate of the head hairpin can be increased. Which the number of transplanted beams can be reduced, the cost of surgery is relatively reduced. The best results are achieved with the least hair follicles.

FUE Follicular Unit Extraction

Follicular Unit Extraction, referred to as FUE was introduced as an alternative to strip harvesting in FUT. The birth of FUE hair transplant technology is to provide another method for extracting hair follicles for patients who cannot accept scars on the posterior pillow. Due to easy operation, it has become one of the mainstream technologies in just ten years.

Minimal scar, it is suitable for small hair transplants.

  • No stitching is required, no stitches are needed. (The anaesthesia method is the same as the incision method.)
  • Select the hair follicles one by one, only left the size of millet grains scars. (A few of small white scars will remain after the operation.)
  • Compared with the eyes which can directly look at the hair follicles, the incision method of separating the hair follicles one by one has a higher damage rate.

Who Suitable for FUE

  • Donation region cannot tolerate long and young scared
  • Cannot tolerate any discomfort after surgery
  • Stick to short hair less than a half of inch after hair transplantation
  • Just transplant hundreds of hair follicles
  • Had several hair transplants, the scalp is too tight and the skin cannot be removed by the STRIP method
  • Extreme hair density in the donation area

FOX Test before the operation

FUE authority Dr Rassman insisted that first try to extract the hair follicles from the posterior pillow (this is called the FOX Test) before the operation. According to the difficulty to decide whether the bald patient is suitable for FUE. This is a good way, using local anaesthesia during the diagnosis and making a few holes in the patient's head is actually difficult to perform. Therefore, most hair transplant centres do not perform this test.

Not suitable or needed for FUE

  • Like Female -Most people would not consider shaving their hair, and it takes years for the hair removed from the FUE back pillow to grow back to its original length.
  • Do not care or mind about scars in the donation area
  • Unintentional scraping or extremely short hair
  • Cannot shave hair to work after surgery
  • Hope to achieve the best results in the shortest time at the lowest price
  • Cannot prone for more than two hours
  • There will have opportunity to do the hair transplants again in future

The difference between Easterners and Westerners in FUE

FUE hair transplantation must consider the characteristics of the patient's hair. Westerners have thick hair and hair follicles that are short and easy to pull out. It is suitable for FUE, but not necessarily for Easterners.

Each customer's scalp is different. Which method is most suitable for customers requires actual confirmation of the scalp condition in order to provide professional advice to the customer.

Visit the hospital for consultation

In order to diagnose hair loss correctly, you should go to the hospital for consultation. This will determine whether a hair transplant or a medical treatment is more effective, based on the patient's comprehensive conclusions.

If it is inconvenient to go to the hospital from a long distance

Send the photograph including the front of face, the top of scalp and the back to the hospital. Through the photos, it can discuss whether to perform a hair transplant and then decide to come to the hospital. However, photos alone cannot diagnose correctly, so it is better to go to the hospital to confirm the diagnosis in the most scientific way.

The transplanted hair follicle is cut with the scalp and sutured in the operating room. Although there are methods for sutures using iron warp threads, Koreans are different from Westerners in that they are prone to scarring. Therefore, even if it takes a long time, it is better to use for sutures. It doesn't bleed and there is no need to bandage.

5.Separation of hair follicle units

According to the hair follicle unit to separate the cut scalp tissue one by one. Non-damaging the hair follicle is an important part of the incidence of hair generation, so it must be handed over to a skilled surgical team for separation. Hair follicle units are not well separated or the method of separating 5-9 hair masses at once like a rare transplant operation is not suitable for Koreans.

6.Hairstyle design

Design hair transplantation of hair follicles. Hair transplantation is not simply a process of hair transplantation to the bald apex, but should be considered from a cosmetic perspective and in the future. This is from the designer of the hairstyle. In particular, the hairstyle on the forehead determines the contour of the face, which is a sensitive part for the patient. Therefore, other signs should not appear after transplantation, it must have a good effect from a cosmetic point of view. Designing hairstyles requires art and technology. The design should be based on the patient's age, face shape, hair colour, density, requirements and expectations.

7.Hair transplant

After local anesthesia at the transplant site, the hair follicles were transplanted with a hair transplanted. In order not to damage the hair follicles, the transplantation takes care, and the transplantation time takes about 2 hours. In order to maintain the original natural hairstyle, the direction and angle of the transplantation are the same as the original detachment. During the operation, the ECG, oxygen concentration, pulse, etc. are automatically displayed by the monitor. Therefore, the operation is safe. There is no pain during transplantation, and you even can watch movies or TV.

Gauze was used to fix the backrest after the operation. Except in special cases, do not use a bandage on the transplant site.

The process of hair regrowth and shedding after surgery

The transplanted hair begins to fall off after the second week of surgery, and 70-90% of it may fall off within one month. The hair lost gradually and begins to grow after 3-4 months after surgery.
