Like good health and youth, most of us take a thick head of hair for granted — that is, until it is gone. Hair loss can really affect the lives of both men and women. It may result from various factors such as stress or genetics, but regardless as to what is the cause behind the hair loss many sufferers are affected in a similar way. Self-consciousness and lack of self-esteem are common with many who have lose their hair, especially if they were not expecting it – a common case for women and very young men.
What is Trichology
Trichology is the medical term for the study of the hair (and scalp) and all problems related to them. A ‘trichologist’ is someone who specialises in hair loss problems such as baldness, hair breakage and itchy/flaking scalp. He or she will also treat all forms of alopecia.
Think of a Trichologist as a ‘hair doctor’, as someone you may wish to consult instead of visiting your general practitioner doctor. Although the hair and scalp are viewed as external structures, they actually reflect the status of the complex body systems that keep the body functioning. For that reason, trichologists study the body systems, nutrition, chemistry of the hair, and the physiology of the hair and skin. Trichology focuses on treating the hair from the inside-out. A healthy scalp begins with a healthy body.

Surgical Hair Transplantation
Hair transplantation involves removing small pieces of hair-bearing scalp grafts from a donor site and relocating them to a bald or thinning area. There are different methods of Surgical Hair Transplantation, such as scalp reduction, tissue expansion, strip grafts, scalp flaps or clusters of punch grafts.
Hair Transplant By Strip Method
The Strip Harvesting technique is a hair transplantation method that involves removing the follicular units from the donor area as one group. This hair transplant technique allows the follicular units to be extracted intact in their genetic form. Each follicular unit contains one to four hair, the average being 2.2 hair per follicular unit. An integral part of the process is to receive follicular unit grafts that have not been damaged. The harvested follicular units are then dissected with great care under fibre optic equipped microscopes to avoid the application of heat that may harm the hair follicles. Once separated, these follicular units are preserved in a special saline solution at the correct temperature waiting to be placed in the recipient area, which is the bald or thinning area on the scalp. Continuing the process, the surgeon first prepares recipient sites on the patient. The final step of the surgery is the follicular unit placement.
Follicular Unit Extraction
Hair Transplantation by the Follicular Unit Extraction method (FUE) was considered to be a breakthrough in the hair transplant industry when it was commercially introduced in the western world in 2002. In FUE, the extraction of intact follicular unit is dependent on the principle that the area of attachment of arrector muscle to the follicular unit is the tightest zone. In this transplant procedure the donor area is required to be fully exposed by shaving it down to zero.
If the patient however needs up to 1500 grafts, then the donor area does not need to be fully shaved and sufficient harvesting area can be exposed by a marine “crew” cut. The surgical procedure starts with administration of the local anesthesia to the donor area and the extraction of the follicular units. A simple way of presenting how FUE follicular units are extracted is shown in the figure below. FUE has one main advantage- the absence of any linear donor site scar, thus permitting the patient to shave his head if desired. Moreover there is almost limitless donor, especially if body hair can be used. The extracted FUE follicular units are passed to the technicians of the medical team to check that the quality is of the highest standards under the microscope and immediately after group them into single, double, triple and quadruple follicular units. The final stages of the FUE procedure are the creation of the recipient sites by the doctor and the placing of the follicular units by the rest of the medical team.
Which method is best for you?
Both the FUE and the Strip Excision procedures have advantages and disadvantages. The FUE procedure, given its minimally invasive nature, does not produce one long linear scar but rather hundreds of tiny scars in the donor area that are often hard to detect. This has fueled interest in the FUE procedure with patients who are highly concerned about potential visible scarring in the donor area.
