The number of grafts vary from patient to patient, depending on the size of the area to be transplanted as well as the intended density. mYou may need anything between 500 – 2000 grafts up to 3000 grafts for the typical balding male. While many patients require only one hair transplant session, some may require 2 – 3 sessions to achieve good density.
Although it is minimally invasive compared to other elective procedures, a hair transplant also demands a certain level of expertise.
In Malaysia, hair transplant doctors must fulfil specific criteria issued by the Ministry of Health (MOH). These serve to safeguard the quality of hair transplant services in the country. So, when you go for a consultation, make it a point to ask if your hair doctor is MOH certified to conduct hair transplantation treatment. In addition our hair transplant surgeon – Dr.Ruban is also a member of the LCP Committee of the Ministry of Health Malaysia – for licencing aesthetic medical practice doctors and various international bodies for hair transplant surgeons worldwide.
Since the process is not just merely transplanting hairs and arranging them on a whim, it means that the level of expertise to achieve natural-looking results will come at a price. However, when you make an effort to prepare for it thoroughly, you can make it worth every penny!
Hair Transplant should be a last resort (i.e. tried other available medical options) but in terms of results, the majority of patients find it more rewarding/worth it when done by a good hair transplant surgeon. This is especially so if the transplanted area has receded/bald, as no herbal/medical options would restore it otherwise.
Yes, a hair transplant is an effective surgical treatment that restores hair growth in areas where there is limited or absent growth permanently. With good patient selection, it can provide natural-looking and long-lasting results. Donor grafts will retain their DHT-resistant characteristic even if surrounding hairs continue to shed.
When you are not actively undergoing a period of active hair shedding (telogen effluvium), chemo-induced shedding, (anagen effluvium), in the absence of certain scalp conditions like active alopecia areata, active lichen planopilaris, active frontal fibrosing alopecia or other scarring alopecias, to name a few.
The right patients for FUE should be in good health and with adequate donor density. This means that there should be enough hair from the donor area because the backsides of the scalp can provide very little hair for FUE.
Age is also a big factor, which means the patient has to get this procedure when the hair loss pattern has been stabilized. Young people are advised to follow other treatments for the meantime.
