Hair loss can make everyone unhappy, and it could be an important factor of low self-confidence. This can unbalance many aspects of your life.
The baldness makes you look older and exaggerates the wrinkles and lines of the face. Self-esteem is essential for the quality of your life. The purpose of hair reconstruction is to create a contour around the face and diminish the effects of aging caused by hair loss.
Surgical techniques to resolve baldness has been used for over 30 years, and they have been continuously improved.
What is a hair transplant?
There are two types of hair transplants: follicular unit transplantation (FUT technique) or follicular unit extraction (FUE). Unitary follicular transplantation involves the extraction of hair follicles by removing a scalp strip around the back of the head, approximately 15-20 centimeters, which is then closed by seams.
Subsequently, the hair follicles are harvested and transplanted individually in the problem areas. The single follicular extraction consists of the extraction of 1-4 hairs using a micro-instrument, without incision, and relocating them to the problem region.
The procedure can be performed in a single long or several short sessions, depending on the desired outcome and the patient’s preferences. Although the execution time is longer, this method has fewer disadvantages: it does not leave visible scars, the recovery takes place faster (less than seven days), and the cost is lower than the FUT procedure.
Both hair transplant procedures are safe and offer the expected results if proficient doctors perform them.
The risks of the operation
No operation does not involve any risk. Usually, hair transplantation is a safe surgery if performed by a professional.
However, each patient reacts individually, so the outcome is never entirely predictable. In addition, complications, infection, excessive bleeding, scarring can occur.
There is also a risk that the graft will not catch. When hair loss progresses after surgery, an unnatural appearance of “patches” may occur if the transplanted hair (which usually does not fall) is near areas that continue to thicken.

How many sessions need to be done to get the results?
In general, a single session is sufficient for the hair transplant, but depending on the donor’s hair area, some patients may need more than one session. The number of sessions will be determined by our doctors, who will consider many factors and aspects of your lifestyle.
If a session is not sufficient, the next implant will be done after at least six months from the first one. In hair transplant operations, the cost is determined by factors such as the size of the hair loss area, the number of follicles to be transplanted, the doctor’s experience, the number of sessions needed, and the hair condition in the donor area.
