The problems of partial or total alopecia occur in both men and women and there are various causes for which they can occur. However, the most common are aging, inheritance, hormonal changes and stress.
Our medical team works with two of the main techniques tested to combat alopecia, such as follicular micrografting and strip micrografting. Both are based on the principle of extracting follicles and their subsequent transplant to the affected area.
In follicular micrograft we will extract one follicular unit at a time. Depending on the number of hair transplanted, this surgery can take between 12 to 14 hours, which is why it is usually practiced within two consecutive days.
In the strip micrograft we take a strip of follicles from the scalp, and this is the complete transplant to the affected area. The size of the strip is a decision of the medical body and depends on the conditions of each patient. The duration of this procedure is usually between 6 to 7 hours, and local anesthesia is used.
These procedures require a pre-surgical assessment to be able to know if you are a good candidate for surgery. In this assessment you will inform our specialists what your expectations are so we can clarify all your doubts and in turn we will notify you in more detail what the limits of your treatment will be, depending on your hair type and the selected surgery.
