The principal behind hair transplant surgery stems from the permanency of some hair. While some hair on your scalp has a transient life span, other hair tends to endure for a lifetime. It was found that permanent hair could be moved to any part of the body where it can continue to grow and behave as if it were still in its original site. So this means that by transplanting hair from the back of our head to the front, this hair will continue to behave the same way as if it were in its original position and will not fall. This is the main reason why the result of a hair transplant is considered permanent.
A hair transplant is a safe, minor surgical procedure that involves removing donor hair from the back or sides of the scalp (donor area) and placing them into the bald or thinning areas of the scalp (recipient area). In order that a hair transplant procedure is performed in a state of the art way, involves numerous variables that need to be in place.
To start with, you need an expert team that can ensure that hair is placed in the recipient area with the correct pattern, distribution, angulation and density. During this process, the hair follicles must be handled in a very special way and stored in the proper solution so that they remain healthy and ready to be placed in the recipient area. The HDC hair transplant team has all the above qualifications and this is proven by the excellent sustainable Hair Transplant Results over the last years.
The “Follicular Unit Extraction” (FUE) Method" involves removing one follicular unit at a time directly from the donor area. This is achieved by the use of a specialized punch of less than a 1mm diameter. HDC was the first hair transplant clinic that offered the FUE method in Europe as early as 2003.
This gives us a head start, over other clinics, and a vast experience on this hair transplant technique, proved by our excellent FUE hair transplant results. In addition we respect the donor site without wasting the extracted follicular units and without damaging adjacent grafts. See more details about Avoiding scarring and depletion on this article.
