There are two common types of hair transplant surgery available on the market: “FUT” and “FUE”. Yes, the latest transplantation is the combination of Stem Cells. At Glojas, we own the trademark of SMART FUE, SMART FUT & SMART PRP which is a combination of formulas invented by our Founding CEO, Dato’ Dr.Jasvinder Singh (Dr.JasG).
FUT stands for follicular unit transplantation and is otherwise known as “strip surgery”. This involves removing a piece of skin, dividing it under a microscope into individual groupings of follicular units and then those are transplanted into the recipient area.
FUE stands for follicular unit excision. It used to stand for extraction, except excision sounds more like the sort of thing only a doctor should do and so it was changed. Rather than a strip, FUE involves “individual follicular extraction in which follicles are removed within a small circular punch that is less than a millimetre in diameter,” both types have merit and both should be considered as both options have long been tested and proven.
There is, realistically, only a handful of surgeons who perform very good, state of the art transplantation surgery and who utilise the right hairs in the right place. A lot of clinics are trying to open up, cutting corners and quality in an attempt to profit off the increased interest in surgery thanks to celebrity examples.
The cost for a Hair Transplantation by doctors of proper credentials and experience is anything between RM10,000 and RM25,000 (USD3,000 to USD6,000) depending on the severity of the hair loss issue, the donor area and the option chosen for transplantation. Anything cheaper is a warning sign. Many deaths and permanent damage have occurred in cheap transplantations, they are cheap for many unscrupulous reasons.
Always be reminded that the doctor’s credentials and experience should be of top importance as you place your life and safety in their hands. You need to be prepared to pay for quality and assurance to life, safety and hygiene.
Follicular Hair Transplant
Considered as gold standard, Follicular Hair Transplant can be considered as one of well-known hair restoration surgery. Hair grows from the scalp in groupings called follicular units which contain sebaceous unit, supporting structures while containing 1 to 4 terminal hairs. The hair transplant surgeon utilizes the follicular unit for faster healing, for greater density and fewer traumas to existing hairs in the recipient area. The redistribution gives the appearance of fuller look while the number of hair may not change.
Follicular Unit Extraction
With small punch excisions ranging from 0.8 to 1.5mm, in FUE method follicular units are harvested separately and then manually removed with forceps. Due to the difficulty in determining the angle and depth of hair follicles, the hair transplant surgeon’s initial experience yielded approximately 30% transaction rate.
The transaction rate at this stage is as low as 6% with improved instrumentation and better understanding of follicular unit. Where grafts are removed and thinning of donor area can be seen, if too many grafts are detached, hyper pigmentation can occur.
Patients who are prone to hypertrophic scarring or those who have undergone strip method, FUE method can be perfect for patients who have little scalp laxity. For a more natural appearance the hair can be placed in the scalp after extracting from the donor site. While the strip method is generally reserved for the posterior part of the scalp, FUE can also be used to harvest hair follicles from other parts of the body.
According to the number of terminal hairs, the assistant then takes grafts and separates them before placing them in the bald area of the scalp, while trimming is rarely required.
Platelet Rich Plasma
In order to increase hair yield rate, diameter and hair density, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) can be described as an emerging trend in restoration of hair.
This therapy takes the blood from the arm of the patient while putting the blood into the centrifuge and while spinning them to separate out red blood cells from the plasma. Then this plasma is injected directly in the scalp at the level of hair follicles.
We at Glojas offer both FUE & FUT Hair Transplant for head hair, facial hair and body hair. We also have the option for Stem Cell Transplantation procedures.
