The surgery is performed using a local anesthetic plus a mild sedative. The procedure usually takes five hours to transplant 5,000 hairs to their new location. No bleeding, pain or discomfort is experienced from clients during the surgery. The patient sleeps during the surgery but may wake from time to time to stretch or have a glass of water.
Most clients say the hair transplant experience feels like taking a twenty-minute nap and waking up refreshed. After the surgery, the client is free to go home without a need for further medical assistance. Because the client may still feel a little sleepy from the sedative it is the Medical Group’s policy to insist the client does not operate a car or machinery until the next day though.
All surgery is performed using a binocular magnifying lens,
which allow better visualization of the delicate follicular units. The hairs are
placed as close together as possible. Only state of the art equipment and the
follicular technique are used.
Advantages of using the follicular hair transplantation technique:
Soon, signs of new hair growth will occur. Once the grows starts (in about ninety days) clients report that everyday thereafter is like Christmas as they awake to see their new hair growth start cover areas that once took away their self esteem, confidence and visual appearance.
Many say that they feel young again because the vision they see in the mirror is a reinforcement that they are. Many also say that they are treated with more respect and are taken more seriously then they were before their surgery.
