Reconstructive hair surgery
In the field of reconstructive hair surgery, major progress has been made over the last 15 years, with hair transplants looking increasingly natural. Hairless areas, the result of an accident, an operation, a burn (for example radiation damage caused by a tumour radiotherapy), or congenital asymmetry (bald patches), can be restored by hair transplantation using either the FUE or the FUT method.
"The important thing about any such treatment involves not just making the patient look better but also making him / her feel better."
It makes no difference what type of hair is involved here - head hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, beards or pubic hair. A precise treatment recommendation is dependent on the structure of the skin area affected, as transplanted hair does not grow on scarred tissue as well as elsewhere on the body. Where treatment is performed by an expert, it can be generally said that 60% of transplanted hairs have a good chance of long-term survival, though the nature of the scarring needs also to be taken into account.
