No procedure is better than the other and the choice solely depends on the needs and preferences of the individual and therefore the option between implant and transplant must be discussed with your surgeon.
The main differences between implants and transplants are:
All patients should be in good health and have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with biofibre hair transplant.
We do not treat patients below the age of 18 years of age.
Healing is better if patients refrain from or quit smoking.
Biofibre hair transplant is performed purely for cosmetic purposes, to help improve one’s image and self-esteem.
Biofibre hair implant is a safe and simple procedure carried out under local anaesthesia, which means the patient will be very relaxed and comfortable throughout. The procedure is performed with a specific implant tool that is used to hook the biofibre and inserted to the scalp one by one.
Benefits Of Biofibre Hair Implant
Drawbacks Of Biofibre Hair Implant
After your implant insertion, you can almost immediately go back to your normal activities. However, the final implantation of biofibre hair will be completed after 20-30 days following the initial session. In most cases, only about 800-1500 biofibre hair implant can be done per session. If you desire more density then you will have to go back for another session, which can be done after 8-15 days. Generally, 2500 biofibre hair is known to give the most desirable result.
The amount of time the results lasts depends on many factors, but in most cases, people experience 10% of the loss of implanted fibres.
Biofibre hair implant is a simple and quick procedure, biofibre is inserted on the scalp one at a time until the desired density of hair is obtained.
Biofibre are undetectable and can meet any hair colour, length and shape requirements giving you a fuller and natural looking head of hair.
The procedure has zero downtime and you can go back to normal activities almost immediately after your session.
No procedure is better than the other and the ideal option solely depends on an individual’s needs and preferences. Hair transplant surgery options such as FUE, FUT and PRP Therapy gives natural-looking but gradual results and the recovery period is also much longer, whereas, biofibre hair implant gives natural-looking and instant results.
