The practitioner manually extract each graft (follicular unit = natural anatomical units of 1 to 4 hairs) from the donor area of the scalp using a cookie cylindrical part and reimplanted still manually directly at the recipient area of the leather scalp with an implanter or the clamp.
This is a much less surgical technique that Greffe de Cheveuxation technique other technique called strips which involves surgically removing strips of scalp and cut under a microscope in recent follicular units to be reimplanted in the same manner as before.
Performed manually, technical F.U.E. The main disadvantage to be more long and tiring for the practitioner that the technique of strips. Nevertheless she won more patient compliance because it is less surgery and leaves no scar.

This technique is suitable for men and women of all ages from the time the donor area is sufficient.

In this technique, a local anesthetic is sufficient.

This technique is not painful. Local anesthesia supplemented by premedication (mild sedative) makes perfectly painless session during and immediately after surgery.

The next morning the intervention, the patient can take a shower, go to work and resume all normal activities (excluding sport naturally for a few days or weeks for some Violent sport) .The wearing a motorcycle helmet not advised during this period.

Or all of the transplanted hair may fall within days of the operation, which is perfectly normal. Not pushing that about 1 cm per month as all the hair, the aesthetic result can only be truly satisfying only after 5-6 months.

Breast Implants


Using test breast implants and the comparison with other patients operated, the patient and the surgeon come to determine the desired volume of the prosthesis.

It is recommended to change breast implants only when those wear it. Regular monitoring is clinical and radiological necessary to monitor this wear.

Not unless malformation syndrome and special cases such as: Poland syndrome, agenesis, severe breast hypoplasia

All scientific studies (large-scale and long-term) have shown that women with breast implants do not develop more breast cancer than others.

The introduction of breast implants behind the mammary gland does not seem to impact on breastfeeding.

The prosthesis was behind the mammary gland, clinical monitoring is simple. The presence of an implant can modify the capacity of x-rays to detect breast cancer. The carrier of a breast implant patients should specify that the radiologist can use specific and appropriate methods (ultrasound, digital mammography).


Reductions Breast


If the reduction of breast volume is greater than 300 g per breast, there is support for Social Security; a work stoppage is possibly prescribed for 1 month.

Not if breast enlargement and sagging are moderate, we practice the "vertical" known method to remove the horizontal scar located in the crease under the breast.

By the end of growth and beyond, for the duration of life.

This procedure is not painful or little if no action is performed on the muscles.

Four to five weeks of sport provides are necessary and sometimes more if the correction of a diastasis was performed.

Not always. If stretch marks are located below the navel, surgery removes almost all vergetures.Si these are extended to supraumbilical region, it will not be possible to make all disappear.

This intervention is not made to handle the overweight problem. We can expect a correction of prominent abdomen (pendullum abdomen).
