Patients may experience mild swelling to the forehead area for a few days following surgery and on rare occasions may actually experience a black eye if the frontal scalp is transplanted
The transplanted hair seen above the scalp will initially be shed, however the roots will remain dormant for 12 – 20 weeks, at which time the new hairs will begin to grow.
There crusts will flake-off in 10 – 14 days after the surgery.
Can be combed over the recipient area.
*After surgery *: Patients may be asked to use moist compression and to sleep in a semi-upright position for 2 – 3 days following the procedure to minimize swelling and bruising.
*Length of procedure* : Can take from 3 – 8 hours and are performed using local or twilight anesthesia on an out-patient basis. Patients are often awake but feel relaxed as they are given a mild sedative drug. There is usually little or no pain during the surgical procedure.
Within 24 hours, small crusts will from on each graft, which are shed in approximately 7-10 days. The grafted hair will often start to grow in 12-20 weeks after the procedure and will continue to grow for a lifetime.
*Nowadays, the technique used in hair clinics is megasession follicular unit grafts which prepared under binocular stereoscopic dissecting microscope in order to minimized hair follicle transection and give natural result.*
The creation of very small micrografts (Follicular units) has allowed very natural, feathered hairlines to be grafted, and avoids an abrupt “pluggy look” that was typical many years ago. A minigraft can be used behind the hairline for added density. Depending on the degree of balding for the frontal area and similarly for the crown area , 2-4 procedures involving several hundred or perhaps 1,500 or more grafts may be required to achieve the desired density.
Hair Transplantation involves removing a strip of permanent hair-bearing skin from the back or sides of the scalp (donor area) by using various techniques. The strip is usually dissected into micrografts and minigrafts.
