The moment that Merrit, among others, I will separate these hairs occurred in loose hairs and plant individually excellent field was opened to make a cosmetic transplant without these round are noticed. Since then we've done variations on this technique and improvements to what Merrit and others promoted.

¿Who is the ideal to undergo this hair transplant candidate


A hair transplant is required as part of hair loss or alopecic importune the person enough to have a desire to repopulate this area. This happens in both men and women, what happens is that the need is greater in women because a woman with short hair in a worse condition in which a man where baldness is relatively acceptable it would look.

¿Treatment is more common in men or women


Twenty years ago almost only males trasplantabamos. At present 20% of the patients we treat are approximate women.

¿are the ideal conditions for realization of surgery


We must have Healthy Hair for transport to the area where hair is missing. If this condition is satisfied we can make a successful hair transplant frankly.

¿What results can be expected after surgery


The result should be excellent, to be understood as cover the affected area. To do this we rely on the quality of the hair of the donor site, ie, that there is sufficient and abundant hair, it is thin or thick to cover the affected area.

¿That hair transplant techniques currently exist


Today we use a single technique for hair transplantation, the more cosmetic, is the follicular unit. Where if there are two techniques is how to obtain these follicular units of the donor site. There is an area of the strip, which provides abundant hair, where a long line of a centimeter of scalp then sutured extracted, leaving an imperceptible scar. Or we can get hair with a small drill bit to a 0.7 millimeter diameter pulling hairs individually. The advantage of the first, or technique headband, is that it gets more than double hair with the technique of follicular unit and the person who is transplanted what you want and need is hirsutism.

¿What type of anesthesia is used for surgery


The surgery will do with the local anesthesia. This does not mean that some will be more anxious patient can apply some sedation but retaining consciousness. The time duration of the surgery will be a 4 or 5 hours because we have no hurry and we want a job well done, with comfort for the patient and the time required to make a work perfectly.

¿When we assess transplant outcomes


Once the surgery the patient will immediately appreciating home seeding very short hairs in a few days, about the time of a month will fall. Will fall because they lack the blood supply when it arrives and will return to play. The entire hair after transplantation appreciate about the eight months, and the absolute maturity of the transplant will see a year of doing.
