Follicular Unit Excision
Hair transplant is the BEST solution for patients with baldness. Not only that it is safe, it is natural and permanent. Hair transplant is a minor sugery which all critical steps will be performed by Dr. Pukpinya Jangjetriew and assists by her nurses and technicians.
The concept of hair transplant is to move hair follicles from the donor area (usually at the back of the head) and transplant back to the recipient site (bald or thinning area). The procedure will take around 7-10 hours depend on the difficulty of each case.
FUE hair transplant is currently a popular technique due to the minimal scars and recovery time. It is a technique where follicular units are extracted out one by one. Hair transplant can be used in various problems such as androgenetic alopecia, eyebrow loss, beard/mustache loss, and scars.
1.) The surgeon draws the recipient area, measures grafts required for hair transplant and shaves the donor area. The patients will take pain killer, antibiotics and mild sleeping pills before the surgery. Photos will be taken before and after the hairline is drawn. Recipient area(s) will then be injected with local anesthesia, this is the only painful step.
2.) The surgeon performs graft excisions with WAW FUE SYSTEM. This tool decreases the trauma that could happen to the hair follicles, and it is as good as ARTAS robotic system. The assistances will, then, harvest hair grafts and put them into the holding solution to preserve the quality of the hair grafts while they are outside the patient’s body.
3.) Hair grafts will be dissected and screened under the microscope for healthy and intact follicles. Only healthy grafts will be used for implantation. Unhealthy grafts will not be used as new hair will not grow in it and could result in bald patches.
4.) The surgeon implants healthy grafts on the recipient site that has been discussed with the patient. This will be done using Implanter Pen which is another device to help protect hair grafts from getting injured by the procedure. This will significantly increase the rate of survival to patient’s hair grafts.
Let’s see the transformation
After a hair transplant, hair follicles will be in a weak stage and should be taken care of very well. 2 weeks later, scabs will start to fall out and transplanted hair might fall out too. All transplanted hair will fall out before new hair grows. 1-2 months later new hair will start to grow out from the transplanted area. After 6 months, half of the transplanted hair will grow and will fully grow after a year.
