Hair transplantation can be the permanent restoration procedure for the treatment of certain types of female hair loss.
Contrary to the results of former techniques, up-to-date hair transplantation can accomplish completely natural aesthetic results.
These are absolutely undetectable, provided they are performed by specialized, experienced doctor s who have all the necessary skills.
The Nature of Hair Transplantation
Hair transplantation can be implemented successfully to women. Prerequisite for that is a complete diagnosis has been made and the precise cause of hair loss is defined.
Hair grows in naturally occurring groups of 1-4 hairs that are called Follicular Units.
Those consisting of one hair are allocated along the frontal hairline. As we move towards the inner part of the scalp, hair follicles constitute groups of 2, 3 or 4 hairs.
Follicular units are complete biological units that are comprised of nerves, blood vessels, sebaceous glands, collagen and the small muscle arrectorpili. In hair transplantation we exploit the follicular units of the front and side of the scalp.
Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation. The extraction of hair follicular units from the Donor Area and their reimplantation to the area of hair loss.
The reimplanted follicular units remain intact to hair loss and continue to grow normally throughout a life time.
As Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation reproduces the exact way hair grows in nature, it can provide completely natural results.
New hair will start growing progressively and the first signs of growth will appear in 3 months.
Complete results can be accomplished in approximately 10 months. New hair accepts any kind of coiffure technique and does not need any special care. Besides, they will have no difference from the pre-existing hair.
The Medical Team
Hair transplantation at Bergmann Kord is a painless, safe medical practice of mild gravity, but demands special skills and evolved aesthetic ability by the doctor.
Hair transplantation should be an optimized combination of science and aesthetic perception.
Α successful hair transplantation should be absolutely undetectable, but have a completely detectable, beneficial impact on all aspects of the patients΄s lives.
Length of the Procedure
The procedure lasts a few hours, but time goes by pleasantly and smoothly, as you can have a conversation with the medical team, watch TV or simply relax.
After the end of the procedure you return home. Hair transplantation at Bergmann Kord is performed in fully equipped operating rooms, through local anesthesia.
Return to Usual Activities
In a few days you can take up again your usual activities and in many cases you are able to return to work even on the day following your procedure.
Hair Transplantation Techniques
Hair Transplantation should be as unique for each patient as his fingerprint.
So as there is not just one and only solution proper for everyone, Bergmann Kord medical teams are fully experienced in the most advanced hair transplant techniques and implement that or those that are suitable for each candidate.
In some cases there is a need for a combination of techniques in order to ensure a flawless result.
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation): follicular units are received through microscopic dissection of a single strip of hair removed from the donor area.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction): follicular units are extracted one by one from the donor area.
In order to provide a completely individualized hair transplantation to the patient, our doctors draw up and then implement a Personalized Hair Transplantation Plan that is unique for each patient and that therefore leads to a personalized aesthetic result.
Post Operative Care
At Bergmann Kord we create a personal medical record for each patient in order to closely monitor each case. Individualized care is also provided after the hair transplant procedure.
After the procedure, you will be given orally and in written all the necessary post operative instructions, and we are also providing you with round-the-clock medical care.
The day after the procedure you will come to our clinic for your first hair wash and examination by the doctor.
Then you will be given the schedule of follow–up appointments with the doctor (the appointments are set at the end of the 2nd week and in 3 and 10 months after the procedure) for the checking and recording of the post operative course.
Bergmann Kord continues to stand by all patients for any hair-related advice or information.
Hair transplantation does not create new hair and cannot stop hair loss; it redistributes the existing hair from areas of the scalp with adequate density to the areas affected by hair loss.
That means that it cannot provide a full head of hair and basic prerequisite for someone who wishes to have a hair transplant procedure is to have adequate donor hair supply.
The final result varies from person to person, as different parameters have to be considered in each case: the facial characteristics, number of transplanted follicular units, shaft diameter (fine hair provide less density), hair color and texture, skin color, etc.
Operation and Procedure
Hair transplantation is a predefined process that is performed through certain steps -but is always different according to the patients΄s needs- and Bergmann Kord medical teams observe the highest standards at every single stage of the process:
- Follicular units are carefully extracted and kept intact, either through microscopic dissection of the tissue in FUT or one by one in FUE.
- Follicular units are classified according to the number of hairs they consist of.
- Follicular units are protected until the time they will be reimplanted.
- The appropriate recipient sites are created.
- Follicular units are transplanted to the recipient sites.
During follicular units placement, Bergmann Kord doctors take into account all the necessary parameters that will define a natural result:
- Proper direction of follicular units so that they become fully harmonized with the growth conditions of the Recipient Area.
- Appropriate distribution of follicular units to the thinning area, in order to ensure maximum density.
- Effective combination of all factors that ensure a refined and natural frontal hairline. Hairline is seen at first sight and must be a mild frame for the face and the most natural link between forehead and hair.
Many skills are therefore required by the doctor, not only for the initial design of the hairline but for its creation as well.
