Hair transplants, also referred to as hair implants of 1 to 4 hair follicular units, are prepared either by follicular extractions from the shaved scalp and grafting hair grafts with a hand or motor micropunch of less than one millimeter (FUE) or by follicular segmentation of a strip of the scalp under a microscope using long hair implants without prior shaving (FUL).
The grafting of follicular units makes it possible to bring an aesthetic and definitive solution to the majority of the hair fading or the patchiness of certain hair regions. The main motivations behind seeking treatment are androgenetic alopecia in men and in women, permanent and residual side effects of traction alopecia (braids, chemical relaxers, etc.), scarring of the scalp, beard, mustache or eyebrows, and permanent defects of the eyebrows or pubic hair.
What is a hair transplant?
Hair transplants use tiny scalp fragments of the hair transplant type (or follicular units of 1 to 3 hairs per transplant). It can be implanted in a session up to 5000 hairs in 3 to 5 hours. In this time, it is possible to finish a hair line or densify a bald surface of variable size.
Prior to undergoing a hair implant, it is necessary to undertake a pre-operative medical assessment, some preliminary medication, and a painless local anesthesia following the prior application of anesthetic cream. The hair transplantation is almost painless and the procedure is simple enough to allow the patient to leave the clinic after a rest of one to two hours. Depending on the hair graft technique used and the size of the surface to be treated, the patient will be able to resume his / her professional activity within 1 to 2 days.
