Reconstructive hair transplantation

The outcome of a hair transplantation is not always to the client’s satisfaction. This could be because scars are visible in the donor area or receptor area, or because the hairline looks unnatural.


Hair Science Institute specializes in correcting previous unsatisfactory or failed hair transplantations performed by other clinics – also known as reconstructive hair surgery. Together with one of our doctors, you can explore the option of reconstruction to achieve the desired result.   One of the major drawbacks of conventional hair transplantation techniques – the FUT and FUE method – is that visible scar tissue forms in the donor area. The seriousness and extent of the damage may have an impact on recovery. However, the area of application and the scars can be successfully treated with the HST method. 

Hair transplantation techniques

THE FUT METHOD

This hair transplantation technique has been around for more than 30 years. In this method, a strip is taken from the donor area on the scalp. The skin is then attached, so a large scar always remains visible. This means fewer and fewer FUT hair transplantations are carried out these days. This method of hair transplantation is often seen as outdated.

THE FUE METHOD

Since the FUT method leaves a scar behind, a new technique has been developed – the FUE method. This involves removing grafts with a hollow needle one at a time from the donor area. There is no scar formation, because the grafts are removed from all over the donor area. However, it does leave white dots visible. In addition, the treatment takes a long time. Often, there are multiple treatments needed to achieve a good result.

HAIR STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION

With Hair Stem Cell Transplantation – the HST method – parts of hair follicles are removed from the donor area with a very small needle. These small pieces of skin (tissue) are then transplanted to the receptor area (bald skin). Because the hair follicles are not completely removed, a number of stem cells are left behind in the donor area. This is where the hair also regrows. So, thicker hair can be achieved almost without any kind of scars.
