Fat Grafting (Fat Transfer, Lipofilling) Therapy
The effectiveness of hair transplant is based on a number of factors. To get everything right, it is very important to plan the intervention precisely, and it is also essential to assist regeneration processes as much as possible.
The latter can be promoted considerably with a completely new breakthrough process, which is called Fat Grafting, Fat Transfer or Lipofilling. For many, these terms may be unfamiliar, so let’s take a closer look at what exactly this treatment is and how does it happen.
Since the highest concentrations of stem cells are found in the fatty tissues, these tissues are transplanted during the therapy. As adult stem cells are still able to divide and differentiate, they play a huge role in regenerating the human body. That’s exactly why it is a great help for post-transplantation regeneration when someone chooses this supplemental treatment.
During the procedure, the first step is to perform a liposuction, usually carried out in the abdomen. This process causes neither pain nor discomfort, and there is no need for large quantities of fat so it’s pretty quick. The extracted fat is then passed through a special cleansing and concentration process and then injected into the scalp.
At this point, stem cells derived from fat are able to activate existing but dormant hair follicles – so this treatment can be applied even separately against hair loss –, stimulating the growth of new hair fibres. In addition, they supplement the hair transplant to improve the condition of the transplanted hair follicles and contribute to faster hair growth. They help to overcome hair loss and increase the survival rate of transplanted hairs. Last but not least, they reduce the possibility of post-transplantation scarring. Thanks to fat grafting therapy, healing will be much faster and less inconvenient, and the perfect result will be guaranteed.
Dr. Greg Pataki, Head Physician of the Premium Hair Clinic gained a lot of experience in Hungary and abroad in using autologous fat transfer, so we can safely say that he is among the leaders in further developing and utilizing this kind of therapy – and the first who use it in Hungary.
