The hair transplantation is a relatively new sector of aesthetic surgery. The most modern technologies in this field are being applied in our clinic giving excellent results and a high percentage of survival of the transplants.
In 1941, Hamilton described the patterns of male baldness defining 8 most wide spread types of hair loss using a standard line of simple drawings. In 1975 it was improved by Norwood, who added 4 more stages. Scheme 1 presents one of the most popular baldness classifications, where the patient can recognize his type of hair loss.
Scheme 1. Classification of baldness, according to Hamilton-Norwood
Following is a description of each stage of baldness, according to the classification of Hamilton-Norwood:
In Scheme 1 all stages, designated with „А“ in accordance with the Hamilton-Norwood scale, have two important peculiarities. First, the backward recession is usually along the whole line of the forehead covering its middle section as well. Second, there is no baldness of the crown parallel to the above described change. The hair loss at the crown emerges at the expense of the continuous backward recession.
The transplantation method is a semi-automatic FUE technique, involving extracting of implants (hair bulbs) by a special device from the donor zone – over the ears and under the nape. Then they are processed and transplanted in the desired area. The transplanted hair grows. It can be cut and dyed. After a period of six months the aesthetic effect is excellent.
PRP in hair implantation
The Platelet - Rich Plasma (PRP) is a revolutionary system for renewal and nourishing of the skin through application of own plasma. After relevant processing, the blood plasma is injected in the scalp derma in order to improve the hydration and the blood supply of the respective area.
The plasma is applied in the medium or deeper skin layers, where the thrombocytes release their growth factors. There is no danger of allergies or hypersensitivity because only a biological product from the patient is used in this method. PRP combines successfully with hair transplantation as a preliminary preparation for the procedure
