Hair loss is caused by a combination of ageing, hormonal changes and a genetic history of baldness.  The earlier hair loss begins, the more severe the baldness.  It can also be caused by trauma, or burns, whereas this surgery is considered reconstructive.

Procedure Types

Hair Transplantation - The procedure consists of resurfacing bald areas of scalp with hair.  Plugs of bald scalp are removed and then filled with plugs of scalp containing several hair roots taken from hair-bearing areas.  Those grafts root themselves into their new locations and hair follicles start to grow eventually. 

Depending on the degree of baldness, the number of grafts needed and the length of treatment sessions vary.  Several operations may be necessary.  The technique may leave many small scars on the site used (donor sites) but are usually not noticeable.

Planing on having hair transplant procedure in Kobe JP?
Here is some General Information about Kobe JP:

Kobe See German house, Ijinkan
Kobe's main attraction for the Japanese is its concentration of Western-style houses, some dating back to the days when Kobe was opened for foreign trade in 1868. Europeans who grew up in similar scenery may find them less fascinating.

Scalp Flap Transfer – This is done when the sides of the scalp (above the ears) and the back of the scalp is hair-bearing.  A long thin "flap" of scalp that is hair-bearing is removed and placed across a bald section to create a band of normal hair growth.  As part of the treatment, parts of the bald scalp may be removed.  The donor site is closed by stretching the opposite side of the scalp. 
This procedure replaces hair across a large area of bald scalp.  The hair growth looks normal, and the narrow scars are hidden between the hair follicles.

Scalp Reduction (Serial Excision) – This is the removal of as much of the bald section as possible and done in the first operation.  The adjacent hair bearing areas of scalp are pulled in close to the bald section, with the understanding that some bald areas will remain.  This technique is repeated one or more times at a later date to eventually reconstruct the bald area.

Kobe JP hair transplant - Tip of the day:
How long will it be before the desired result is achieved?
It will take about a full two years before a full-grown look is achieved through periodic implantation sessions done in Kobe,JP (Japan). Grafting, flapping and pulling cannot be done in just one session and hair growth from grafts usually takes time. However, the wait will be worth it after the last session in hair implant.

Tissue Expansion – A device called a tissue expander is placed under a hair growth area situated adjacent to a bald area.  After several weeks, the tissue expander causes skin to grow new skin cells.  Then another operation is necessary to place the newly expanded skin over the ajoining bald area.

Ideal candidates for hair replacement must have a healthy growth of hair at the back and sides of the head.  The hair on the back and sides of the head will be the donor sites where the flaps and grafts will be surgically removed.

The procedure  location options may include the surgeon`s office-based surgical facility, outpatient surgery center, hospital outpatient, or hospital in patient.

The anesthetic options are either general, or local (combined with a sedative)which allows the patient to remain awake but relaxed.

To achieve desired fullness, several surgical sessions are needed.  There is a healing period of several months  recommended between each session. The final result with a full transplant series may take up to 2 years.

Kobe JP hair transplant - News update:
BMJ news reports on the results of a Welsh survey presented at the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency conference in Birmingham. The survey found that nearly two-thirds of GPs don’t report adverse reactions to drugs under the yellow card scheme. The survey collected data from 22 local health boards (1700 GPs) from 2004 to 2007- 63% of the GPs did not submit a yellow card. A sample of 224 GPs was looked at in more detail, half of the GPs had submitted four or more yellow cards and half had made no reports. It was found that good reporters tended to be GPs who know about the scheme, undertook postgraduate medical education, were involved in training, and made time to report. A pharmacist from the West Midlands Centre for Adverse Drug Reactions also presented results of a qualitative study from 2006 (involving 27 GPs) investigating what motivates a GP to report. Ten regular reporters, 10 lapsed reporters, and seven non-reporters were interviewed over a 12 month period. The regular reporters were more conscious of the burden of adverse drug reactions and provided anecdotes from their own experience, the non-reporters were less aware. It was found that the non-reporters were worried about submitting incomplete cards and receiving requests for more information. They also raised the issue of time and all complained that increased pressure of work meant that there was less time to fill in yellow cards. According to BMJ news, a UK-wide campaign to raise public awareness will begin on 18th February. The campaign will involve community pharmacists and run for six weeks. Simpler and clearer forms are also being introduced together with inclusion of messages on reporting in patient information leaflets. More...

A month or 2 after surgery, the grafted hair falls out (which is normal and temporary).  It takes another month or more before hair growth starts.  To create more natural-looking results, a surgical touch-up procedure may be necessary.  This may consist of using a combination of mini grafts or slit grafts to fill and blend in the hairline.
