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 Takamatsu JP?
Here is some General Information about Takamatsu JP:

Takamatsu By train
The most frequent train services from Honshu to Takamatsu are on the Marine Liner (???????), a rapid train service which runs from Okayama via the Seto-Ohashi Bridge about twice an hour. The one-way ride takes around 55 minutes and costs ¥1470. (Free with the Japan Rail Pass)

Connections to the Marine Liner can be made from the rest of the country via Shinkansen (Hiroshima, 1 hr 40 mins; Osaka, 2 hrs; Tokyo, 4 1/2 hrs).

An overnight sleeper train, the Sunrise Seto (???????), makes daily runs to Takamatsu out of Tokyo Station. The train ride lasts about 9 1/2 hours.

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.

Takamatsu 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 Takamatsu,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.

Takamatsu JP hair transplant - News update:
It is estimated that 80% or more of drugs used in Europe and the US to treat children with cancer do not have information for paediatric use in their product licence and are thus used off-label. The Paediatric Regulation, which came into effect on Jan 2007, aimed to provide better drugs for children by increasing the amount of high-quality ethical research done in children and by ensuring the availability of authorised paediatric drugs and proper information on their uses. The Task Force in Europe for Drug Development for the Young (TEDDY) project and societies, such as the International Society for Paediatric Oncology–Europe (SIOP–E), intend to aid this initiative. This paper deals with the issues encountered in the management of children with cancer, the barriers to overcome, and the potential solutions, specifically: • Central issue of clinical research • Role of paediatric pharmacovigilance • Current situation and future perspectives • Effects of the new Paediatric Regulation 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.
