At the Groot DermaSurgery Centre, Dr. Nakatsui uses the current gold standard technique of hair transplantation, which is known as Follicular Unit Transplantation. This can be accomplished via the strip technique, which involves the use of microscopes to dissect out very large numbers of small grafts each containing no more than one to three hairs (follicular units). These follicular units are removed from the back and sides of the scalp in a strip (where they genetically have a longer life than those that were lost in the thinning or bald areas). It can also be done using the FUE technique (follicular unit extraction), which involves the use of a tiny sharp or dull punch to extract the follicular units one at a time from the scalp.
Getting a hair transplant was one of the best decisions that I made. For me it definitely improved my appearance, and my level of confidence. I would highly recommend to anyone who is concerned with baldness. It is painless and very affordable. I have an older brother, who is two years older than I am and unfortunately has the same hairline. After my hair transplant, I look ten years younger than he does. – A.K.
