Frequent Asked Questions about Hair Transplant in Colombia.
HAIR TRANSPLANT SURGERY
Someone who has one of the following characteristics in the donor area:
- Very small donor area.
- Very low capillary density.
- Very thin and fragile hair.
A maximum of 50% of the hair from the donor area can be drawn throughout life with the manual FUE or robotic FUE technique. However, a maximum of 20% of the hairs are removed in one session.
That depends on the degree of baldness. The higher the degree of baldness, the higher number of follicular units are necessary to correct the problem. Therefore, the lesser the chance that the alopecia (bald) area can be completely covered in one session.
On average, robotic FUE delivers twice as much follicular units than manual FUE or FUS in the same amount of time.
After the operation, you will receive analgesics, antibiotics, ice and be prescribed rest for the first 24 hours. You may feel itchy or have some redness on the skin of the donor area and the receiving area for a few days after surgery. With the strip technique (FUT or FUS) you will have a feeling of tightness in the back of the head, reduced movement for 3 to 7 days, removal of stitches after 10 days, be able to start intense physical activity or swimming after 1 month and varying degrees of numbness in the skin of the scalp which will run for several months. With the manual FUE technique or with robotic FUE you may resume normal activities 24 to 48 hours after the procedure. There are no stitches to remove. You may start an intense physical activity or swimming after 15 days.
ARTAS ROBOTIC SURGERY
The ARTAS robotic procedure is a minimally invasive hair transplant solution, which uses digital images and robotic precision to extract grafts for transplantation. Unlike previous methods of hair transplantation, there is no need for surgical removal of a strip of scalp from the back and sides of the head. No linear scar remains after the procedure and there is no need for stitches or staples to close the wound. This results in quick recovery time and the ability to return to normal activities and work in a short time.
