Hair Transplant

 

At Hair Doctors we are proud to offer you the latest and most advanced hair transplant surgical techniques. We are one of the few clinics in Australia offering the implanter pen method which popularly known as Direct Hair Implantation (DHI). The main advantages of this method compared to the standard hair implantation method using forceps are:

- Better growth rates (DHI method 85-95% Vs Manual Implantation 65-75%)

- More natural results as the surgeon can control the depth, angle and direction of the hair follicles that are implanted.

- Better hair transplant density as the implanter pen method allows tighter packing of the grafts without compromising the blood supply of the scalp.

 

Procedure

 

Hair grafts are extracted in follicular units consisting of 1-4 hairs through a follicular unit extraction (FUE) method. These grafts are taken from very small 0.7 to 0.9mm extractions. This harvesting method compared to older Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT/strip surgery) leaves patients with significantly less visible scarring. These Follicular Units are then carefully inserted into implanter pens and implanted into the scalp.

 

Length of Procedure

8-10 Hours

 

Expected Recovery Time

1-2 Weeks

 

Expected Results

12-18 Months for full results

 

How often are treatments done?

This varies from patient to patient. Most patients will only require one transplant surgery in their lifetime provided their hair loss has been stabilised with prescription medications.

 

A small number of patients who decide to have a hair transplant at an early age may need an additional procedure later on in life to compensate for the natural progression of their non transplanted hair.

AFTERCARE

 

After your hair transplant you will require regular reviews to ensure your recovery and hair growth are progressing as expected. First visit will be 3 days after your transplant and will involve your first shampoo of the newly implanted hairs and a review to ensure there are no complications. The subsequent visits will be at 3, 6 and 12 months and will involve a detailed hair and scalp analysis.
