Baldness And Hair Loss
Principle of hair micro-grafts against alopecia
In predisposed subjects, for reasons partly unknown but often linked to hereditary factors, the hair located in regions
of the skull enter a phase of very rapid acceleration of the hair cycle.
The latter, by shortening, exhausts its potential in a shorter period of time, which leads first to thinning of the hair , then to actual baldness , caused essentially by androgen hormones (testosterone and dihydrotestosterone) in the hair loss. early hair.
Hence the term androgenetic alopecia , used to designate this type of baldness responsible for 98% of cases of early hair loss in men and 30% in women.
Hair transplants have become the effective and fast treatment method for baldness and alopecia. The principle of transplantation is simple, and consists of taking hair from an area where it is found in large quantities to relocate it to the area(s) marked by hair loss.
Consultation before hair graft transplantation
During the first visit, a meticulous examination of the scalp , the type of baldness , its extent and the expectations of the patient is carried out by the doctor / cosmetic surgeon to establish his diagnosis and will recommend the type of treatment best suited.
If the baldness is of the androgenetic type and therefore lends itself to surgical therapy, the doctor will discuss with his patient the planning of the autograft intervention and the design of the reimplanted areas.
»» This phase represents an essential step in the operation: this design should not be the subject of a compromise between the patient and the surgeon but should be the result of a decision taken after careful consideration.
The results that the patient can expect vary greatly from one subject to another, the planning of the hair transplant must therefore also be carefully thought out on a case-by-case basis. The two main issues to raise are the design of the hairline and the extent of the area to be treated.
The front line
Bulbs transferred from the occipital region to the frontal region (from the forehead) retain the same life expectancy as in their original area where they are taken. The basis of a successful hair transplant, this also implies that the first line of hair, thus reconstituted in a natural way, will be permanent and must meet the aesthetic requirements of the patient, at all stages of his life.
Frontal lines that are too advanced or excessive filling of the gulfs at the level of the temples are errors which, over the years, force the patient to have forced retouching and/or complicated operations to eliminate grafts positioned too far forward.
The extent of the area to be treated
Not all patients can set the same goal – for some it will be densification , for others complete coverage of the balding area , for still others restoration of the area. anterior. The extent of the capillary area to be treated should be considered in conjunction with the surgical plan, the density of the donor site, the desires and the age of the patient.
Procedure of the hair implant transplant
Once the operative plan and the date of the intervention have been determined, a hematological assessment to be carried out before the operation is prescribed to the patient. He should not take any medication containing aspirin for at least ten days before the procedure.
The stages of the intervention of hair transplants are the following:
The evening before and the morning of the operation, the patient must shampoo himself with a medical soap, intended to destroy the bacterial fauna present on the scalp.
Once the preoperative drawing has been made, the surgeon will entrust the patient to his assistants, who will take him to the operating room and prepare him for the intervention.
The intervention takes place on an outpatient basis and under local anesthesia and lasts between 2 and 6 hours, depending on the number of areas treated: the patient remains completely conscious throughout the duration of the operation and returns home no later than the end of the day. afternoon.
The surgeon begins to remove the strips from the scalp containing the bulbs to be transplanted – note that the section of the edges of the strip follows a slightly oblique path.
This trick keeps a few bulbs under the suture line, so the hair grows back through the scar and makes it virtually invisible.
At each completed hair removal, the strip is immediately placed in sterile containers filled with ice-cold saline.
While the surgeon is busy suturing the edges of the wound, the assistants have already started cutting the strip into follicular units
Once the suture is complete, the surgeon completes the anesthesia of the recipient area and moves on to the most delicate phase: the implantation of the micro-grafts.
This consists of implanting multiple orifices in the scalp using a needle slightly larger than the one usually used for intramuscular injections, so as to leave no scar. The orientation of these holes respects that of the hair in the recipient area, so that the transplanted hair grows in the same direction.
The orifices then receive the micro-grafts, inserted using microsurgical forceps. Of course, only the follicular units of a hair will be placed at the front edge, so that the aesthetic result is as natural as possible. Conversely, the follicular units of two or three hairs will be placed in the posterior regions, so as to obtain, for the same quantity of grafts, a double or triple hair density. At the front edge, it will also be necessary to take care to distribute the grafts with naturalness, to avoid this aspect "in rows of leeks" which gives the graft a completely artificial appearance.
Traditional hair transplant by strips Vs FUE hair transplant
Technique called "strip"
Hair transplantation using the strip technique is based on the extraction at the nape of the neck (donor area) of strips 1 to 2 cm wide and 10 to 15 cm long which are cut into micro grafts of 1 to 8 hair. These micro grafts are then reimplanted one by one on the recipient area. The removed capillary area is then closed with staples or stitches with absorbable suture.
The main advantage of this technique is the speed of sampling, however, a visible scar may persist in the long term.
Faced with the demand of patients who do not want a visible scar, the FUE method has appeared. The principle is the same, except that the removal of micro grafts is practiced using punches (rotating cookie cutters) of different diameters. Indeed, the punch of 0.8 to 1 mm makes it possible to take grafts of 1 to 2 hairs while the punch of 1.5 to 2 mm makes it possible to take grafts of 4 to 8 hairs which are then reimplanted in the area. donor in the same way as with the strip technique.
The advantage of this FUE technique lies in the absence of scarsand is particularly suitable for men who wish to have a very short haircut without visible scars. On the other hand, this technique requires a longer intervention and operating protocol and is preferably aimed at small and medium-sized baldness .
The technique of hair transplants by strip or by FUE may require a second session depending on the importance of baldness – moreover treatments are carried out to facilitate regrowth and stimulate it such as carboxytherapy (injection of CO2) which increases the cellular exchanges in the scalp.
Result following a hair transplant
The regrowth of the transplanted hair will be done in several stages, namely that at 3 months all the transplanted hair will fall, leaving in the scalp only their bulb from which the regrowth will take place. It is between 6 and 12 months that the real regrowth will take place in a definitive way. In the majority of cases, a bandage, similar to a tennis player's headband, is placed to obtain uniform compression over the entire sampling area for a few days. No dressing is usually applied to the transplanted area.
In the absence of a bandage, the hair still present in the treated area and those around it can be styled so as to hide the transplanted area.
At home, the patient follows an extremely simple treatment, which consists of taking an antibiotic and a painkiller for a few days. The scar in the occipital region does not require special care; just apply a local disinfectant after each shower. It should be noted in this respect that the patient can shampoo the harvested area the day following the operation and will have to wait 3 days for the transplanted area.
Post-operative follow-up after transplantation of micro-grafts
Social life is only interrupted for a few days, mainly due to post-operative oedema: in practice swelling, sometimes impressive, but which reflects the body's normal reaction to the trauma caused by the operation.
Located in principle only on the skull, it can descend to the level of the forehead or, in some cases, the eyelids. Either way, the edema is completely reversible and will disappear within a few days without a trace.
The scabs formed at the base of each grafted site will fall off after about ten days, as will the stems of the transplanted bulbs.
Possible complications following a hair transplant
Anesthesia of the donor area, which comes from the fact that the removal always entails the section of a limited number of small subcutaneous nerves, ensuring the sensitivity of the neck region. This sensitivity will return to normal after a few months, while the nerves reform in the area concerned.
An enlargement of the scar which, instead of forming a line, will look like a band a few millimeters thick; the growth of new hair inside the scar will make it virtually invisible anyway. In any case, a touch-up is always possible, at the earliest six months after the intervention.
The regrowth of hair from the bulb, located inside the scalp, to the surface can in some cases cause the formation of epidermal microcysts, quite similar to the small pimples that appear on ingrown beard hairs. . These cysts will disappear without a trace as soon as the hair has found its way.
