About the procedure
A patient who would like to undergo the treatment must first be qualified by the surgeon who will perform the procedure or a specially trained specialist trichologist cooperating with the surgeon.
At the beginning, a trichoscopic examination should be carried out to confirm that we are actually dealing with androgenetic alopecia, and not with another type of alopecia, e.g. alopecia areata, which at first glance may often be difficult to diagnose or may be mistaken for androgenetic alopecia. In the case of alopecia areata, the patient is not eligible for a transplant. The degree of alopecia and the condition of the scalp should also be assessed in terms of possible inflammation. And, of course, the hair density should be assessed in the donor zone, which is usually the back of the head. It is from there that hair follicles (grafts) are taken for transplantation.
After qualifying the patient, he or she receives a special protocol of preparation for the procedure, where all the recommendations are described in sections. In general, these recommendations relate to dietary guidelines, how to handle the scalp in the donor and recipient area before surgery, taking certain medications, etc.
