Hair transplants

Around 70% of the male population is affected by hair loss, and women now increasingly suffer from it too. A hair transplant is the most effective way to solve this problem.

Purpose of a hair transplant

Hair micrografts: FUE (follicular unit extraction).
Hair is taken from the posterior area of the scalp – where it is genetically programmed not to fall – and transplanted into the anterior area, where hair loss is occurring.
FUE uses a circular scalpel to take follicular units from one or two hairs. After checking the quality of the grafts, they are transplanted one by one into the specified area.

Tip
Adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP) when hair is transplanted is the best way to considerably improve graft regrowth and limit temporary loss of transplanted hair. PRP also increases the diameter and quality of transplanted hair.
In addition, PRP promotes healing, especially regeneration of the donor area. This is essential since it preserves your most valuable asset: your donor area.

Furthermore, the injections are completely painless since the area is anaesthetised.

Benefits of a hair transplant

The advantage of this technique is that it is natural and does not cause scarring.
Current finishing off procedures give an aesthetic, natural and above all definitive result.

Expected outcome of a hair transplant

That no one can tell one of our patients has had a hair transplant.
No scarring; regrowth of thick, natural-looking hair that will not fall.

EXTRA

Crisalix is 3D simulation software that shows the results of aesthetic surgery. This tool helps patients better express their request and enables surgeons to give clear, reasoned explanations. Patients are therefore better informed when they decide to have an operation.

Before the intervention

  • An initial medico-surgical consultation is first arranged to:
    • Establish the quality of your hair for a transplant
    • Specify the transplant area; take pre-operative photographs
    • Draw up a quote specifying the price and how long the intervention will last
  • 15-day medico-legal reflection period between the consultation and the intervention
  • Biological tests are carried out 15 days before the intervention
  • Inform us of any medication you are taking
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory drugs and aspirin (except for cardiovascular indications) for 10 days before the intervention
  • Specify any change to your health status
  • Carry out all hair care (cutting, dying, perm, etc.) 7 days before the transplant
  • Start taking antibiotics as prescribed by the surgeon
  • Stop smoking 1 month before the operation

Day of the intervention

  • Shampoo your hair with Septivon® on the morning of the intervention and do not apply gel, lotion or hairspray to your hair

  • Avoid stimulants (coffee, alcohol, tea, etc.) the day before and the morning of the intervention
  • Your scalp is shaved
  • Intervention under local anaesthetic
  • 1st intervention period: you will be lying on your stomach for 1-2 hours while the follicular units are taken

  • The intervention lasts 4-8 hours, depending on how much hair is transplanted during the session

  • Consultations after 2 and 15 days, then after 6 months and 1 year for a check-up and to take post-operative photographs
  • Oedemata may occur on your forehead and eyelids but disappear in 3 days on average
  • Small scabs on the micrografts disappear in 10 days on average
  • Stop smoking for 1 month after the intervention
  • Return to work: after 7-8 days, depending on your work environment
