La greffe des cheveux et des sourcils
Both men and women who suffered from pathological or accidental traumatic event (burns, chemical attack..) are concerned by hair and eyebrows transplants. This procedure is also commonly used for cosmetic purposes for improving a sense of self-esteem. The surgery takes about four hours and is done under local anesthesia in the operating room under the supervision of a anesthesiologist . This procedure takes place in two steps and requires a well-trained team.
A hair transplant is a form of skin graft that rearranges the hair you have by taking hair and skin from one area of your head and moving it to another, hair is transplanted via micrografts, in which only one or two hairs are included in each graft. This achieves a more natural look.
The scalp strips are withdrawn in crown region for men, and in the median occiput for women. After he prepares the grafts, the surgeon cleans and numbs the area where the hair will go, creates holes or slits with a scalpel or needle, and delicately places each graft in one of the holes. The very next day, wearing a headcovering is sufficient to protect the transplants from weather condition (dust, sun, rain..). An edema/swelling around the forehead or the eyelids may appear and will be resorbed a few days after. cradle cap may appear but there is no need to worry about it. The withdrawn area will only require a twice-daily healing care and disinfectors. Sutures shall be removed after about 15 days, and the scars will be almost inconspicuous.
Despite an initial small growth of about two to three millimetres, the hair will fall out, after that, it takes about three weeks before the transplanted hair begins to grow again. It takes additional time (about three to four months) beyond that for the hair to get to an appropriate length to be able to style.
