Australia – Patients who opt for hair transplant procedure are not only set on having hair volume restored but a scar less result. These patients want to sport a fuller head of hair with more confidence in any hair style, which is what the — Australian Institute of Hair Restoration (AIHR) aims to produce.
The clinic focuses mainly on the traditional approach of hair restoration which is the Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). This is infamously dubbed as the strip method because the surgeon removes a piece of the scalp at the posterior portion and leaves the patient a longitudinal scar that runs horizontally at the back of the head.
Since majority of men want to have the freedom to wear shorter hairstyles, they are demanding for a scar less procedure. In meeting the aesthetic need of the patients, AIHR introduce the Tricophytic Closure Technique, a hair transplant repair method that is used to address the problem of hair transplant scars.
A tricophytic closure has long been used to repair hairlines in widely exposed areas such as the brows or the hairline during face lift surgery. With scalp hair transplant, this type of closure improves FUT results because it promotes the growth of hair through a healing wound.
However, to create a successful result this procedure requires surgeon’s comprehensive understanding on patient’s hair growth pattern. Dr. Andrew Kim who is the head surgeon at AIHR pointed out that considering the patient’s needs is important in reaching a successful and natural-looking result. He also believes that this can be best achieved through a complete evaluation process coupled with outstanding medical care.
FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction may be a good alternative when it comes on creating a scar less outcome, but in the expense of graft survivability. And with very little resources at the disposal of patients, FUT serves as to be a better option.
Dr. Kim aims to give a scar less outcome, even with FUT, using the tricophytic closure technique. Backed by his skills in manipulating the fragile hair structures and his expertise in personalizing hair transplant results, patients are at a better position on getting the clean and successful results they are pining for.
