Hair Transplant a solution for hair loss? Be aware of the side effects!!

Hair Transplant and Side Effects
The number of hair loss sufferers are increasing every year with the number of hair loss sufferers reaching 10,000,000 in Korea.
This means that 1 in 5 Koreans are suffering from some type of hair loss.
Hair loss, a condition believed to affect only the middle aged population in the past is being found among populations as young as in their early 20's.
As the hair loss suffering population increases, many clinics claiming to provide hair restoration solutions (hair transplant surgery) is popping up everywhere around Korea. As a consequence clinics with lack of hair transplant knowledge and experience are performing the surgery resulting in a great increase in cases where patients experience irreversible side effects.
Patients thinking about hair transplant surgery should choose their clinics and surgeons wisely after doing thorough research.

STRIP vs Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

STRIP Hair Transplant Surgery
A strip of skin containing many follicular units is removed from the back of the scalp for transplantation to areas of hair loss.  As an example, a strip may be 2.5 cm wide (one inch) and 30 cm long (12 inches).  The margins of the wound are sutured to close the gap caused by removing the skin. This often results in a scar of unpredictable width disheartening patients and reducing the aesthetic result of the surgery.  

CIT® (FUE) Hair Transplant SurgeryIn FUE harvesting, individual follicular units are extracted directly from the hair restoration patient's donor area, ideally one at a time. This differs from strip-harvesting because, in strip harvesting, a strip of skin is removed from the patient and then dissected into many individual follicular units. The follicular units obtained by either method are the basic building blocks of follicular unit transplantation (FUT) [Sourced from Wikipedia].
