Capillary microsurgery

Capillary microsurgery is an outpatient procedure for alopecia by means of which a certain number of follicular units are autotransplanted from the donor area (occipital and lateral of the scalp) to the area affected by baldness.
Hair transplantation is a simple technique but to ensure its success it must be performed by a highly specialized surgical team trained in microsurgery.

The process is performed under local anesthesia, so the patient does not feel any pain during the procedure and can be discharged to his home at the end of the surgery.

According to the way of obtaining the follicles, we talk about 2 types of grafts:

  • FUSS technique or “the strip”: it consists in the extraction of a strip of skin from the occipital area of the scalp (donor) from which the follicular units will be separated and subsequently inserted in the area to be treated.
  • FUE technique: the extraction of the follicular units is done individually, one by one, manually or assisted with micromotor, to be subsequently inserted in the receiving area.

Recovery period

The postoperative period of the capillary surgery is marked by a slight frontal edema that will be reabsorbed in a few days, and is practically painless, only a slight discomfort is felt that calms down with mild analgesics.

The results begin to be visible from 4-6 months and are definitive around the year of evolution of the surgery, allowing to recover a younger image in a very natural way.
