Searching and deciding on the right hair restoration clinic for you can take a long time and a great deal of research; although this maybe tiresome on occasions it is crucial to your short and long term happiness. Invariably we initially think of looking locally, certainly in our own country but it is increasingly popular that we widen our search abroad for many different surgical procedures, not only surgical hair restoration.
A hair transplant relies on a genetically strong band of hair around the sides and back of the scalp and moving some of the hair to the top of the scalp where hair loss has occurred, today the FUT and FUE techniques are used. Hattingen Hair Transplantation are based in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, they have practised in North America and Europe, in the past worked closely with Walter Unger MD, credited with defining the parameters of the “Safe Donor Zone”.
The hair is moved in follicular units (FU´s); naturally occurring bunches of hair, normally from 1 to 4 hairs per group. The grafts placed in the recipient area and around 12 months the hair regrows and matures to cover the area treated. Hattingen Hair believes in a Master Plan, looking long term as this is believed to be in the best interests and well-being of the patient. Understanding that the first procedure is vital to donor management.
Regardless of technique, Follicular Unit Extraction, FUE or Follicular Unit Transplant, FUT, Hattingen Hair Transplantation puts the well-being of our patient as the paramount key to the success of the hair transplant.
Aspects such as hair line placement play an important role, donor hair management; graft distribution, medical proficiency and artistic ability to understand the scalp physiology are crucial aspects to successful hair restoration. It is important to research thoroughly before making any decision; ask questions and arrange a consultation with the clinic to discuss your case in greater detail.
