Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the ‘donor site’, to a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’. The technique is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding, (like the back of the head) are transplanted to the bald scalp. Hair transplantation can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, and pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. Hair transplantation differs from grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.
Since hair naturally grows in groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, current techniques harvest and transplant hair “follicular units” in their natural groupings. Thus modern hair
What is Robotic Hair Transplant?
It’s a breakthrough technology introduced by Medicament, France by the name of S.A.F.E.R (Suction Assisted Follicular Extraction and Re-implantation) Robot and known as Neo Graft in the western world. This patented robot adds a new dimension to the conventional manual hair transplant techniques by increasing efficiency and promising better results. It provides dramatic improvements to conventional graft harvesting techniques by providing controlled suction so that the hair root is undamaged. It also uses controlled pressure re-implantation as compared to the manual direct hair transplantation.
Why is it important to get the surgery done from an experienced surgeon?
Hair Transplant, although a minimally invasive surgery with rare complications, can have adverse effects if proper hygiene is not maintained. Moreover, badly done surgery can lead to graft wastage and may result in a scenario where reconstructive hair transplant is also not possible.
