Finding A Hair Transplant Clinic

Hair is moved in follicular units (FU´s); naturally occurring bunches of hair, normally from 1 to 4 hairs per group. The donor area is either sutured or the punch holes naturally heal dependent on the technique used

Small slits are made in the recipient area for the follicular units to be placed in and post operation over a period of around 12 months the hair regrows and matures to cover the area treated

The recipient area, making the most from the hair available to give coverage and a naturally looking density even over high Norwood stage candidates; allowing for a result to be achieved in one pass

Utilising techniques such as custom-made blades for making the recipient sites and following the natural lay of the hair allows for a greater density to be placed and more fullness, allowing for a greater coverage with fewer grafts

Hair transplant in modern times was thought to originate from Japan in the 1930´s and later in New York in the 1950´s; now hair transplants are being performed all over the world. 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”

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

Hair line placement also plays an important role, the lower or more aggressive the design will increase the surface area to be treated, the design must then be largely determined by the donor hair characteristics.

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.
