WHAT METHODS ARE USED FOR TRANSPLANTATION?


There are two parts to the transplantation procedure - extraction and implantation. Hair is extracted from the donor area and transplanted into the recipient area. There are two different methods of extracting the hair which will be transplanted. Each method has its own particular advantages and the Plastic Surgeon will advise you which method or what combination of methods are most suitable for your situation. One method extracts a piece of hair-bearing skin from which follicles are isolated (multiple follicular extraction), the other method extracts follicles one by one (follicular unit extraction). Both methods of extraction result in tiny grafts of follicles which are ready to be implanted.


CAN I CONTINUE TO WEAR A WIG AFTER A HAIR TRANSPLANT?


Of course. The transplanted hair will grow beneath a wig as does normal hair. Some people prefer to continue wearing a wig until the transplanted hair has grown to a decent length.
Your Procedure - the actual transplantation of hair - will
follow your Personal Consultation, usually the next day.

You will have discussed with your Plastic Surgeon the details of your procedure and he will have explained what happens next.

The procedure is not painful, the donor areas and the areas of implantation are treated first with topic anaesthesia - just like a dentist uses. You will have been advised to have stopped taking vitamin E or any other vitamin-supplementary pills 3 weeks before hair transplantation. You should also not drink alcohol, take any aspirin or any kind of steroids in the week before the procedure. If you are receiving medication you should advise your personal doctor
about your plans to make hair transplantation and specifically
about the imminent use of topic anaesthetic.

We will arrange for you to be collected from your hotel so you will have no worries about transportation. Depending on the methods you have agreed with your Plastic Surgeon, the procedure might take place in a surgery or a clinic or private hospital. Whichever location is used, you will be treated in private and in a pleasant, comfortable environment. Different transplantation methods require slightly different preparation. The surgeon will wash your head and prepare your hair for whichever transplantation method(s) will be used. He will use the assistance of nurses and anaesthetists depending on the transplantation methods used. Transplanting thousands of single hairs or tiny hair groups one by one is a delicate process. You can be sure that every single hair removed will be implanted, you won't lose a single hair in the process. The whole procedure can take several hours but you will be comfortable all of that time with TV/music/DVD available for your entertainment and with frequent breaks for refreshments. Afterwards, the Plastic Surgeon will give you a certificate confirming and guaranteeing the exact number of hairs you have had transplanted.

When the procedure is finished, you will be taken back to your hotel where it is advisable to relax and rest for the evening.

The next day you will see the Plastic Surgeon again for final advice and for him to give your hair its first wash.

If you are planning to combine treatment with a vacation in Greece, you will be able to set out to explore the ancient monuments, enjoy the beautiful scenery, visit some islands and relax before returning home with your new persona.

If you have any questions or worries in the following months your doctor will always be available. It takes time for hair to grow and the full effect of transplantation can only be fully appreciated after a year or so. The doctors are always glad to see the final result either in photographs or in person.
