The Hair Transplant Procedure
Hair Replacement Procedure
The hair replacement technique is performed with local anaesthetic. There is NO intravenous sedation (as is required in other hair transplant procedures), simply because it is such a gentle microsurgical procedure. Oral analgesics are available and usually only small doses are required
You can observe, direct, discuss and be totally informed and involved in the hair replacement here in Australia.
The overhead Carl Zeiss Ophthalmic microscope providing up to 25 power magnification is connected to a large monitor, so unprecedented , and till now still unequalled, patient interaction , understanding and supervision is allowed.
In yet another world first, and still exclusive service, patients, upon request can observe the removal of follicles from the donor or body, using “Hair Replacement Australia”, or M.O.D.E . Monitoring of Donor Extraction. Watch the video link to find out more. These exclusive services provide absolute reassurance that transection rates are absolutely minimal, placement is correct and without trauma, and that the best hair transplant world wide is being offered and openly VERIFIED to the patient.
Absolutely NO need for a ‘Biopsy Test’, ‘Trial’ or ‘Test Patch’ prior to our procedure. It is available for everyone worldwide.
The ‘STRIP-EXCISION’ as used in other transplant procedures is DEFINITELY NOT DONE.
With our unique Hair Replacement Procedure we remove the individual follicle ‘cylinder’ units from the back of the head, one by one, through ‘micro-incisions’ of approximately 0.5mm to 1mm diameter. Each follicular unit contains only 1, 2, or 3 hair. We can transplant usually 500 of these individual follicular unit ‘cylinders’ (also called ‘grafts’) in one ‘TOP-UP’ session. 500 grafts contain approximately 1000 to 1,200 hairs. Commonly up to 4 sessions can be performed within a 4-7 day period, (approx. 5,000 hair). Also 8 procedures can be performed in 8 to 14 days (approx. 10,000 hair).
These ‘micro-incisions’ shrink to approximately 0.5 to 1mm within hours of the procedure and form tiny crusts that disappear in 7 to 12 days. There are no restrictions regarding straining or lifting.
Clients can often drive themselves home after each procedure. Interstate and International clients can travel by air the next day ,or soon after, if they wish.
The back and sides of the head can have 50,000 to 100,000 hair, so there is NO visible difference to this ‘donor area’, even after multiple ‘TOP-UP’ sessions. However, if one chooses to shave the head completely to a “skin head” style, tiny white dot scars may be visible. If this on your agenda, then a hair transplant is not necessary for you. If the area of baldness requires a great many follicles removed, then hair length of 1 to 3 cm in may be required. This is still very short without seeing the dots and even military style cuts can be acceptable
No Legal Disclaimer Required – Hair Replacement Australia
To our knowledge we are the only Hair Transplantation Clinic in the world where legal disclaimers and waivers are not required. This is your guarantee of our ethical approach, confidence in our procedure and commitment that we are providing the safest and most perfect hair transplantation method possible.
Please note that today, clinics around the world are offering much larger sessions in a single day.
Dr Woods is fully aware of what they are doing and is horrified at the trauma and irreversible damage caused. Can Dr Woods match these numbers ? Absolutely, BUT, they are just NUMBERS and can only be achieved in a robotic, hand drill, production line setting, where a large percentage of the follicles have been “transected” and destroyed. They are then implanted by techs and instruments where no one can tell if it is a viable follicle or not. Dr Woods regards these approaches as wrong, unethical, immoral and fraudulent, and will never be part of this , regardless of the quick and easy profits made.
In these procedures, a water tight legal disclaimer and gag order is imposed and is globally effective. This literally scares any victim from coming forth and exposing what is going on. If they do, they will be identified and sued for damages up to several hundred thousand dollars US. The internet forums were once private, sacred and democratic free speech media. That has changed.
Before going for ANY procedure, PLEASE READ WELL IN ADVANCE, the legal disclaimer.
