Frequently Asked Question
Autologous Transplant This Technique transplants sample of hair genetically programmed not to fall from a donor site (generally the back of the head) & artfully transplant them on the balding recipient site (generally the areas around the temples and the top of the head). There, the transplants permanently retain the growth characteristics they had at the donor site. Since the donor and the recipient are the same person, there is no risk of rejection. The process in thus just a straightforward hair redistribution. The doctor will have a short-and-long term operating strategy designed to optimize the transplant as far as possible, based on the condition of the hair and the age of transplant patients.
Advantage of the Automated Technique:
Less Operative Tine
No Scar, No Stiches
Less Post Operative Pain
Excellent Quality Hair Graft with higher success rate
