Hair loss; male pattern hair loss, genetic hair loss, androgenetic alopecia (hereditary hair loss, male-type) are terms used to describe the same thing. Men consists of hair loss at the front and upper part of the head, the hair remains as the back and sides.
Often men loses 25% of their hair by the age 25, og loses 40% by the age 40 and 50% by the age 50. A balding young man, must first taking medical treatment to obstacle the hair loss. Then the person can think about the hair transplant will be the right approach. Hair loss can be seen in both in men and women. In women, the hair loss is often hereditary and hair were cast overall.

To close the space and openness that we want to gain a natural appearance to hair transplantation, how many follicular units needed is calculated with a special computer program. The amount of hair grafts to be received is determined. According to the assigned amount is determined to complete the planting in one’s few sessions. Each planting session, again according to the quality of the nape of hair 2000 – 3500 grafts so 3000 – 7000 hair follicles can be transplanted. If the amount of donor hair on the nape of not enough, considering the body hair transplantation can be performed.
Hair transplantation is performed by two methods, including FUT and FUE. Now abandoned FUT method is to remove the hair in the nape with a surgical incision, suture closure of the region and remain a permanent scar and a technique based on the principle that the results be made less hair transplants per session. This method replaced with the development of technology FUE (follicular unit extraction) has left the method.In FUE method, using special devices micromotor, hair follicles from 0.5 mm to 1 mm, taken from individual locations. The advantage of this method stands out during this operation, no trace of seams in the region received the most important result of the reduction of the scarring and hair density.
The plantation area, using special knives ” slit ” as we called it opens channels, sowing operation is performed under a microscope using micro-surgical instruments. Open channels of hair is one of the most important steps for a natural result. Transplantation process is performed in an operating room under sterile conditions. The long process of micro-surgical technique that requires experience and equipment. However, because the hair follicles are taken and planted the fields also is numbed with a local anesthetic and sedative drugs used orally and intravenously given pass this long is quite comfortable.
