Palmieri B., Griselli G., D’ugo A., Palmieri G., Salti G.
From the Department of Surgery University of Modena, Italy
Background. Different methods of hair restoration surgery exist: expanders, rotation flaps, autotransplantation and artificial hair implant.
Methods. The authors reviewed 196 patients who underwent hair implantation 2 years before with a highly biocompatible polyamide fiber. Indications, contraindications and complications of the procedure are outlined.
Results. Clinical subjective and photographic objective judgement, evaluation of Hamilton scale grading and covered area rate show very satisfactory improvements. Relevant adverse events were limited to 1.02%.
Conclusions. A careful medical follow-up with regular scalp check-up minimizes complications to a very acceptable rate and overall results are definitely satisfying.
