The most common type of hair loss in both men and women is androgenic alopecia. This is determined by genetic predisposition and leads to decrease in growth rate, hair shaft thickness and hair fall.
In men hair loss tend to affect the frontal and crown regions. However, in women hair fall is more diffuse.
At Aestiva, we aim at designing an age appropriate, natural looking hair line. We have a detailed discussion with our clients regarding their desired hairline in our pre operative counselling to give the remarkable results. The progressive nature of hair fall in the future is also kept in mind.
Technique: At our centre, we practice both FUT(strip technique) and FUE(follicular unit extraction) tailored to the individual needs of each client.
In this technique, the donor hair is harvested from the back of the scalp as a hair- bearing skin strip. The width of the strip varies from 1.5cm to 2cm and length varies from 12cm to 20cm. The donor area is then closed in layers. We utilise the trichophytic method of closure to ensure a barely visible scar post operatively.
In this technique, punches ranging from 0.7mm to 0.9mm in diameter are used to harvest individual follicles. The key to a good result in both techniques is training of the surgeons and proper handling of grafts. We at Aestiva, have achieved world class results by adhering to the basic principles of graft handling.
Duration: No admission required, approximately half-a-year for up to 2000 follicular units.
Types Of Anaesthesia: Local anaesthesia with sedation if needed.
Longevity Of Results: Long term results are expected after hair growth has occurred which takes approximately half-a-year.
