HAIR STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION
The patient who undergoes a hair transplant wants that his own must be a superlative transplant. He wants to be grafted with the best exclusive technique. This type of patient demands to be transplanted in the best clinic.
He informs himself to find a place with correct characteristics, because marketing promises are not enough, he needs concrete and proven facts. The choice of the clinic and of the surgeon are important.
The offers on the market are numerous:
This type of patient seeks the most exclusive regenerative medicine transplant techniques. These techniques provide the most satisfactory results to solve the most difficult and complicated situations when traditional techniques fail to be the solution. In addition, this type of patient also seeks to obtain the most natural results possible.
In Switzerland, the HST Hair Stem cell Transplantation technique is the best technique in the field of regenerative medicine : through partial samples of follicular units it generates the multiplication of hair by clonation in vivo. The donor area is also regenerated as it was before the procedure.
This HST technique is practiced exclusively in Hair Science Clinics, in the most important European towns.
In Lausanne, the Hair Science clinic that practices the exceptional HST transplantation technique is located inside one of the best and prestigious clinics: Clinique de la Source. To have a superlative result of transplantation, it is necessary that the patient in the post-operative period strictly applies the instructions given to him by the surgeon.
The best hair transplant
The patient must first have a perfect knowledge of his situation, through a consultation with the medical team which is fundamental to define a hair restoration project. The patient must make a choice by ruling out having surgery with techniques that cannot achieve a complete restoration due to the insufficient capital of follicular units present in the donor area.
The hair transplant clinic
Choosing the clinic is the first thing to do when you want to get an outstanding hair transplant. The number of transplant clinics is huge worldwide. But clinics are not equivalent. Every clinic must guarantee high standards of hygiene and quality.
It is also necessary to assess whether the clinic is applying ISO certification procedures. If the choice concerns a clinic abroad, it must be ensured that patient’s native speaking staff are able to assist him. It is necessary to check with the clinic all these points.
Who performs hair transplantation?
Do not neglect the information concerning who will perform the transplant. A doctor must always be present at the clinic and in the block. Ensure that the physician is medically qualified and specialized in microsurgery. Some clinics use terms like “trichologist”, “trichologist technician” or “hair transplant expert” to refer to nurses and technicians who perform hair transplantation. This can mask the absence at the clinic of a real doctor, able to treat possible emergencies. This doctor must perform the opening of channels that will receive the grafts during the operation to obtain the best hair transplant possible.
Hair transplant techniques
The techniques generally used are mainly two. The FUT (also called: Strip) is less and less used today for the risks it can run to the patient (it is a real invasive surgical procedure), and especially because of the large scar it leaves in the donor area.
The FUE, which has improved over FUT, consists of the individual collection of whole follicular units that are moved into the recipient area. Shaving the head before the operation is advisable to achieve a good transplant. However, not everyone wants to shave completely and the graft without shaving allows the use of only about 1500 follicular units. FUE is often performed in foreign countries, at the extreme of removing up to 5000 follicular units during the operation, which is risky due to the too large number of injuries on the scalp that could lead to fibrosis or necrosis.
Each patient’s situation is unique
Before undergoing hair transplantation, it is important to be thoroughly examined by a specialist to define the causes that caused alopecia.
- The cause of the fall: to be able to undergo a hair transplant, the patient’s alopecia must be stabilized. This excludes Alopecia Areata. However, grafting is indicated for Androgenic Alopecia, in the case of hair loss caused by burns and when there are scars, without performing reconstructive cosmetic surgery.
- The type of hair loss: should be analysed prior to the procedure to determine if the hair loss is permanent or in remission or is progressing. If hair transplantation takes place during hair loss, as hair continues to fall out, further intervention may be necessary.
The post-operative period
For hair transplantation to give an excellent result, the operation is not the only factor. The post-operative period has a significant impact on the success of the transplant.
One should strictly follow the doctor’s instructions during the period after hair transplantation. Shocks, bruising and loss of transplanted follicular units should be avoided. Avoid sun exposure, physical activity, use prescribed medications, sleep properly for the first 5 days and cut hair carefully for the first few months.
