Restauración de trasplante capilar en Madrid
Here at Instituto Médico del Prado we receive all kind of patients. Men and female of all ages that get in Dr. Espinosa Custodio’s hands to improve their hair situation. There are cases the patient has a hair transplant previously carried out in other clinics. The result obtained by the patient is not the desired one and he wants to improve it. At this moment, we can perform a hair transplant restoration.
In these cases, Dr. Espinosa Custodio receives the patient in the assessment and diagnosis consultation to help him as much as he can to improve the situation. And even if the patient has already had a hair transplant, different solutions can be offered.
Diagnosis with the Doctor
During the first diagnosis and assessment visit, the doctor will carry out a complete hair situation study. With the help of a smart dermatoscope, Hairmetrix by Canfield, he will analyze the density on each area of the head. In addition, he can also check the phase the follicles are at or if they are miniaturized.
Thanks to the report this tool creates, we can find out if the patient is a good candidate for the hair transplant.
Medication y treatments
Because of the intake of the medication prescribed by the surgeon, the hair situation will improve. These drugs will not make new follicles grow where they were lost long time ago. However, the ones that are left will have their health strengthened. And, after a few months from the start of medication intake, the follicles will develop some thickness. With this we achieve to targets: the follicles in the donor area will have a higher survival rate and the follicles in the recipient area, since they are now thicker, will help to a higher density.
In the meantime, it is possible that intradermal hair treatments such as Mesotherapy or Platelet-Rich Plasma will be prescribed. The intention of these treatments is similar to that of pharmacological treatments.
Hair transplant restoration
If Dr. Espinosa Custodio diagnoses a positive situation for the hair transplant, it will be scheduled. In that case, the hair transplant will entail a higher difficulty for the surgeon. We need to consider the donor area already went through the stress of a previous intervention and we are now working on scarring tissue. In addition, the surgeon’s skill will become more important. Follicle selection is more limited and implantation, for that reason, must be done precisely so that the result is optimum.
In any case, after finishing the process, that will last around 18 months, hair situation will have improved as long as all recommendations and care the doctor explains are followed.
Hair restoration surgery’s price will be higher compared to the first hair transplant’s. As it happens with beard, scars, eyebrows and minisessions or small surgeries, it will start at 3€ per follicle unit.
Other alternative or complements to hair transplants is micropigmentation. This technique relates to injecting pigments under the skin, helping to achieve an effect of hair density like the one achieved by natural hair.
Micropigmentation must be carried out by a professional, performing tests to determine that no allergies are present. In addition, the used pigments must be high quality and certified, so their color is similar to the hair’s.
