What Are Personalized Approaches in Hair Transplantation?

Thanks to recent technological developments in the field of hair transplantation, anyone with thinning or balding issues can resolve their hair related problems without sacrificing much time. Today, FUT and FUE methods are used as remedies for such problems.

FUE technique and its subgroups can be subsumed under the personalized hair transplantation techniques. These subgroups of FUE can offer people a wide range of hair transplantation methods.

Personalized Approaches in Hair Transplantation

Micromotor Technique, Gold Technique, Manual and Pen Techniques are among these personalized approaches in hair transplantation. Which technique to be used is determined according to both the patient’s physical conditions and his or her desires. For example, the Gold FUE technique is preferred if or when the skin on the patient’s head is oversensitive. This technique decreases the chance of any wounds which may occur on the scalp during the transplantation.

Besides physical conditions, patients who don’t want their hair to be shaved due to the operation prefer the Manual or Pen techniques. Each one of these techniques mentioned above offers something that the others don’t.

Factors Influencing the Determination of Personalized Techniques in Hair Transplantation

There are a number of factors at play that determines which personalized approach of hair transplantation should be preferred. Patient’s common characteristics, the time the patient is willing to devote to the transplantation operation and beyond as well as the amount of money patient can spend for this operation are among these factors. However, it is safe to say that among the most effective factors on determining which approach to be used come the patient’s characteristics and preferences.

The first step to take in determining which personal approach should be preferred is to open a file exclusive to the patient who wants to have a hair transplant. In this file are found several photographs of the thinning and/or balding area as well as the area where the hair follicles are intended to be harvested from. Taking these photographs with detail and caution proves importance on determining which personalized approach.

After preparing this file, experts identify the important factors such as classification of the hair follicle, the suitability of the donor area, characteristics of the hair and scalp, and then decide on which personalized hair transplantation approach to use under the guidance of these data. Since so much time and effort goes into this process, it is obvious that these studies positively affect the outcome of the transplantation operation compared to ones that don’t bother with this process.
