Hair Transplant

Trust back

A hair transplant is a type of microsurgery that removes follicles from places where hair is abundant (donor zone) and places them where there is a lack of hair (recipient zone).

These are hair procedures made for over 50 years where several techniques have evolved over time.

The most used technique in hair transplants is the FUE technique. (Follicullar Unit Extraction). It is a minimally invasive, painless form of transplant that allows for a quick recovery with excellent results, as it does not leave linear or noticeable scars, thus allowing for the future use of very short hair.

With FUE technology, individual follicular units are transplanted, exactly as they are born in the scalp, from the donor area to the bald (receiver) area. Each follicular unit has, on average, two hairs, but it may have up to three or four hairs.

From 4 to 8 hours depending on the area to be worked and with local anaesthesia. If the area to be covered is large, two sessions are carried out a few weeks apart.

It is not necessary to completely shave all the hair, but when it is shaved, the transplant process is much faster and easier.

The follicle donor area is in most cases delimited by the occipital (area behind the neck), parietal (area above the back of the neck) and temporal (area behind the ear) areas, while the recipient area is located in the frontal, top or crown area. (common pattern in baldness).

With the FUE technique, the hair transplant does not leave any visible scar.

The side effects of a hair transplant can be manifest in the following ways:

  • Swelling in the head and eyes, due to drainage of anaesthesia. This type of effect can occur if adequate care is not taken after the procedure;
  • Reddish head, however, after 1 week the redness disappears;
  • The healing of the pores of the follicles will generate a crust that, after 1 week disappears with careful washing of the scalp.

In the 3 days following the transplant, extra care should be taken in relation to the following:

  • The hair cannot be washed, it must only be hydrated with saline solution;
  • The transplanted area must be uncovered, avoiding the use of scarves or hats;
  • Sun exposure should be avoided as much as possible.


Yes, there are 2 reassessment appointments already included in the price of the transplant.

In most cases, the transplanted hair falls out after 1 month, after which a new hair cycle begins and in which new follicles will be re-born.

The price of the FUE hair transplant varies depending on the complexity of the procedure and the area to be covered.

Many patients confuse transplant with hair implant, due to mere ignorance of the process, in which the latter consists of the simple placement of artificial hair, which will never grow.

If one of these synthetic hairs you have placed falls out or is pulled out, the only solution is to put new synthetic hair back in. There is also a chance that implanted artificial hairs are rejected or cause scalp infections.

In our clinic we DO NOT do hair implants. The safest process with lasting results is hair transplantation.
