Hair Transplantation

The hair falls out, a small bald patch forms at the back of the head, the forehead becomes higher and higher. There is no question about the fact that hair loss need not leave every head cold. For many men, hair transplantation has become a popular and accepted way to effectively combat premature hair loss. Although there are numerous drug therapies for hair loss, there are also many other ways to treat it. However, despite a large industrial sector specialising in such drugs and a number of naturopathic treatment options, there are still patients in whom any therapy is unsuccessful.

Hair Loss: What you need to know

What causes hair loss?

There are numerous causes for hair loss: A genetic predisposition is often responsible for the fact that the growth phases of the hair follicles become shorter and shorter, especially in areas on the front of the head and on the crown of the hair. Unfortunately, men can already show large, bright spots on the head in their mid-20s to early 30s. This process sometimes continues until a semi bald patch is formed. This is often an especially big problem for young men, because their self-confidence suffers from it and they age prematurely. Stress can of course also be a trigger. According to studies, stress can change the hair cycle and thus promote hair loss.

Hair Transplantation: Procedure and methods

Hair Transplantation : Procedure and anesthesia

The hair transplantation is performed under local anaesthesia and is therefore completely painless. Thanks to modern anaesthetics, only certain areas of the scalp need to be anaesthetised. The affected areas are cooled first, to ensure that patients do not feel any pain when the anaesthetic is injected. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can also be injected in the form of a syringe. The platelet-rich blood plasma obtained from the patient’s own blood significantly accelerates and improves hair growth by increasing the blood supply in the treatment area, so that the hair follicle environment is regenerated. Cell growth can therefore be increased, wound healing is accelerated and correspondingly faster hair growth is promoted after the procedure. Depending on the individual wishes and findings of the patient, different methods can be used for hair transplantation:

FUE Hair Transplantation

The FUE technique (abbreviation for Follicular Unit Extraction) is a particularly useful method of performing hair transplantation. The technique refers to the extraction of follicular units, which are implanted after extraction and interim storage. The hairs are therefore removed and transplanted individually. The FUE method is very time-consuming, but also leaves barely visible micro-scars.

Transplanting beard hairs

Beard transplantation is a special form of hair transplantation. With a facial hair transplantation it is possible to replace missing facial hairs, to compress the beard and to fill gaps naturally.

Eyebrow Transplantation

The causes of eyebrow hair loss can be different. In many cases, however, there is a loss due to plucking of the eyebrow hairs, which is why it is primarily a female phenomenon. In these cases, eyebrow transplantation offers a good opportunity to restore natural eyebrow hair growth.

Experiences / Results After the Operation

Hair Transplantation: Experiences and results

As a rule, our patients notice a visible and permanently satisfactory result after about 12 months after the operation. The speed of hair growth and the abundance of regrowing hair varies from patient to patient. In general, however, it can be said that the first growth phase after the hair transplantation starts about three to five months after the hair transplantation. New hair or hair follicles are formed. During this development phase, minimal unevenness may occur, as the new hair shaft is pushed through the skin during this growth phase. Step by step the treated area fills up with strong new hair six to ten months after the hair transplantation. About eleven months after the procedure, positive changes can be observed. The final result can be seen in the twelfth month after the operation.

Hair Transplantation: After the operation

Although the surgical procedure for hair transplantation is long and can take several hours depending on the extent and number of grafts transplanted, it is extremely low-risk due to the gentle method of execution. Nevertheless, even with this procedure, the specific instructions of the treating doctor must be followed after the hair transplantation. This applies in particular to the taking of prescribed medication, but also the use of hair shampoos and care ointments. In principle, the recovery time after a hair transplant is minimal and manageable. After the procedure, patients can return to work one or two days later. It is especially important to note that for the first ten days after the hair transplantation, one should avoid a major increase in blood pressure in the head, for example due to sports, physical work or stress. Direct contact with the head should also be avoided so that the transplanted follicles can grow into the scalp undisturbed. After the hair transplantation operation, scabs could develop on the affected area, but these should have completely receded after about twelve days. The same applies to redness and swelling after hair transplantation. These are possible in the first two weeks, but usually reside quickly.

Risks

Can hair loss occur after hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation is more than 95% successful. This also means that patients need not worry about hair loss after hair transplantation. Because transplanted hair does not fall out. The reason for this is simple. Since the transplanted hair, including the root, is taken from an area not affected by hair loss, the transplanted hair is not affected by genetic hair loss. After growing into the scalp and calming the operated area, the ‘new’ hairs will therefore not fall out, as they have less or no tendency to fall out due to their DNA in the hair root.

Further Risks After Hair Transplantation

In the case of hair transplantation, it is important to make sure that the surgeon performing the procedure has the appropriate special training and sufficient experience. From a medical point of view, no major risks are to be expected with a hair transplant, especially since the procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia or in a so-called twilight sleep. This means the transplantation of your own hair is time-consuming, but rather harmless and can even be carried out on an outpatient basis. However, as with any surgical procedure, minor complications, side effects and risks may occur, depending on the individual characteristics of the patient. For example, if you have an intolerance or allergy to painkillers, it is essential that this is stated in advance. In addition, the long time spent sitting or lying can lead to increased stress on the cardiovascular system.

Costs

Hair Transplantation: What are the costs?

At the Sinis Clinic Berlin, each of our patients is treated individually. This is because it is important to pay attention to the individual needs of each patient in order to ensure optimal treatment, especially with a sensitive subject like hair transplantation. Therefore, we do not offer all-inclusive prices. Instead, the costs can vary depending on personal needs. Costs for a hair transplant can be precisely determined in an individual consultation. The costs for a hair transplant are calculated according to the number of grafts (hair follicles) transplanted plus material. The costs for the first consultation are generally based on the scale of fees for doctors. Thereafter, patients pay 50 euros for the initial consultation with anamnesis, collection of previous findings, physical examination and preparation of a therapy and cost plan. This fee is payable once and will not be credited towards further treatment.
