A hair follicle can contain one, two or three hairs. During surgery the hairs will be separated and the single hairs will be used to enhance the front hairline (single hairs are used so that the procedure produces an undetectable appearance). The double and treble hairs are used behind the front hairline and around the crown to give the maximum density possible.
FUT and hair root micro grafting require only the smallest incisions in the scalp and are performed under local anaesthetic. This means that the pain, bleeding and swelling is reduced to an absolute minimum. Many of our patients in fact report no pain after surgery and go about their lives as normal shortly after the procedure.
This technique has brought about a revolution in hair transplant surgery and earned an impressive reputation for the team at the clinic where innovative treatments go hand in hand with the highest level of care. For most people with significant hair loss, 1-2 operations per bald area can give a natural looking head of hair of good density.
This method of surgery involves removing individual follicles from the donor area, this reduces any scarring in the donor site.
Please note this procedure will take more sessions to achieve the same hair density as strip surgery.
A consultation with the surgeon will be necessary to determine the most appropriate procedure for the patient.
Androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness (MPB) is responsible for 94% of hair loss in men. Whilst there are many possible reasons people lose hair, most hair loss in men can be blamed on heredity.
When your body goes through something traumatic like child birth, malnutrition, a severe infection, major surgery, or extreme stress, 90 % of the hair in the growing phase or resting phase can shift all at once into the shedding phase.
But this Is just one of the many causes of hair loss in women.
