FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS | HAIR TRANSPLANTS
What is s Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant is not the same as hair, or even “getting The words hair implant, hair graft, micro transplant, micro implant, etc., should actually refer only to the TYPE OF OPERATION, not to the amount of hair transplanted; although today this colloquial way of speaking has become commonly accepted. The words hair implant, hair graft, micro transplant, micro implant, etc., should actually refer only to the TYPE OF OPERATION, not to the amount of hair transplanted; although today this colloquial way of speaking has become commonly accepted. Even so, an important clarification needs to be made in this respect:
Human hair doesn’t always grow in isolation but in groups of 1, 2, 3 and 4 hairs at most, and this is what we call FOLICULAR UNITS. On average, each follicular unit can be assumed to be equivalent to about 2.2 hairs.
*So, in a hair implant operation what we actually transplant are follicular units.
What exactly does a hair graft operation consist of?
The first thing to bear in mind is that a hair implant operation will not increase the amount of hair you have but will redistribute it, that is, you will obtain it from your donor area (normally the occipital area) and implanted it in your recipient area.
These hairs (or rather follicles, as explained in the previous section) are genetically programmed to grow throughout life.
Who performs the hair transplant operation?
In CFS Hair Grouo it is surgeons who perform the intervention and not auxiliary as is the case in the vast majority of hair clinics, which is totally prohibited. The surgeons are responsible for extracting the follicles from the donor area and making all the incisions where the follicular units are implanted, taking into account the inclination, direction and appropriate density to obtain a completely natural aesthetic result.
Why do we call it follicular microtransplantation?
Because we implant follicular units and to do so one by one, we need the support of stereoscopic binocular glasses.
Without optical support, it is difficult to extract a single follicular unit and even more complicated to discern how many hairs form each one. In the past (and still today in some “hair clinics”), follicular units were obtained with the naked eye, which meant that they were often extracted all at once without any precision and many of them were also damaged.
When they were implanted in the receptor area there was a great loss of efficiency, since at the point where there should have been a single follicular unit, they ended up compressing several, some also in poor condition, and producing the infamous “Barbie” hair effect.
What hair transplant techniques are there?
Basically two, the FUSS technique and the FUE technique, the latter being more modern, and we can be divide it into the FUE SAV-Sapphire or DHI technique (without visible shaving) and the FUE New Dense-Sapphire or DHI technique. The FUE SAV can be used for small quantity implants, up to 1500 f.u. (i.e. 3.300 hairs, remember this is equivalent to 2,2 hairs per f.u.) and under certain conditions the quality of the donor area. The FUE New Dense, on the other hand, permits many more implants and is performed in a single day, but in return it’s necessary to shave the head. You can learn more about the main characteristics of these techniques on our page: Comparison between Hair Implant Techniques.
The Group CFS Clinics Hair Transplant Academy conducts three-week training sessions. Since the hair clinics perform operations every day (Monday to Friday) you can choose any month for the training (depending on availability). During the training, we teach professionals the different phases of the procedure. Once the course is finished, they will be perfectly capable of performing a transplant procedure from start to finish and will be able to work with their own clinic and branding.
