What is Micro-graft surgery?

Micro-graft hair transplant surgery is a new method: The procedure itself is time consuming because of the expertise involved, but the results can be life changing.

Under visual magnification, the hair follicles are individually harvested from the donor area. This is performed by a team of well trained doctors and nurses.

Micro-surgical dissection of the donor strip must be performed in a professional manner, this is essential for successful transplantation.

The harvested donor strip is cut into small, single units made up of one or more follicles. Single follicle units are transplanted at the frontal hairline. Multiple follicle units (2 to 4 follicles) are used on the top of the scalp to provide a denser effect.

The hair surgeon implants each graft individually into the balding scalp. The procedure is extremely labour intensive. It requires 3 to 5 medical and paramedical specialists throughout the 2 to 6 hour surgical procedure.

The popularity of hair transplantation is definitely increasing as more men are taking pride in their appearance. Those designer outfits are just part of the final look, who was it who said that our “hair is our crowning glory”??
