Hair Transplantation

The hair restoration techniques of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) are performed at Klinik Esthetika's Hair Transplantation Facility under local anesthesia. Hair transplant sessions that involve the movement of thousands of tiny follicular unit grafts may take some hours, but the time goes by quickly as patients rest comfortably during the hair loss surgery; either watching TV, taking a nap, or chatting with the staff.

The perception that people may have of a hair transplant, where patients leave the office with their heads wrapped in bandages and have significant bleeding and pain, is from the older, plug techniques. In modern follicular unit hair transplantation, hair surgery patients leave the office with only a hat and headband and are able to shower and shampoo their hair the day after hair restoration surgery. After the procedure there is only some discomfort that is treated with oral medications, and there is literally no bleeding.

In Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) a relatively large area in the back and sides of the scalp is shaved to approximately 1-mm in length. Instead of removing a single strip, as in FUT, a tiny circular incision is made around each follicular unit. The follicular units are then extracted, one-by-one, directly from the scalp. The tiny wounds are small enough to be left open and heal on their own. The remainder of this type of hair loss surgery is similar to Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation.

The hair transplant procedure is visible for about a week. Some patients cover the area with their existing hair and others choose to wear a hat when they are in public. Patients can resume normal daily activities the second day following their hair restoration surgery, although there are some restrictions on strenuous exercise, smoking and drinking.

New hair growth starts to appear 2 to 3 months after hair surgery and is generally complete in 10 to 12 months.

At Klinik Esthetika we use both the manual and the most advanced Robotic System (NeoGraft) for hair transplantation..
