Everything you need to know about hair implant - frequently asked questions
What is hair transplantation?
It is a surgical procedure that aims to provide a fuller and denser scalp, correcting bald areas, which causes a more youthful appearance, and mainly restores self-confidence and improves patients' self-esteem both in their social life and at work.
What are the main indications and prerequisites for hair implant surgery?
The indications for surgery are based on the classification of baldness proposed by NORWOOD (see figure) which classifies the degree of baldness of the patient, so the surgeon can make an individual planning for each patient, which may require only one intervention or some to obtain the proper and natural capillary density.
How is hair implant surgery performed?
The technique consists of removing hair from the nape of the neck and transplanting it to the bald area. It is an artisanal work where the threads are placed practically one by one and distributed in order to look natural, and it is not possible to notice that the patient has undergone surgery.
How is the post-operative period of hair implant surgery?
The patient undergoing hair transplantation is discharged at home on the same day, with no need to stay overnight. This is due to the fact that the surgery is performed with local anesthesia and sedation. The return to activities at work can be done after the first week and the stitches are removed around 10 to 14 days.
