Hair loss has become an issue for an increased number of people all over the world. This has led to much scientific advancements and therefore methods of hair restoration have been introduced. Switzerland offers all these methods but the cost of these is very high. Hair plays an important part in a person’s outlook and therefore those suffering from baldness often feel a sense of inferiority. In order to correct this, the surgical method of hair transplantation in Switzerland has proved to be the most result yielding. In Switzerland the latest methods and techniques are used but the cost of this is extremely high. The procedure was done initially in the 1950s for the sole purpose of treating hair growth issues resulting from accidental scars and gaps resulting from burns or birth deformities. Since this kind of procedure became very successful and totally concealed abnormal gaps and covered burn and birth marks, the procedure became a cosmetic procedure that was used to treat people who suffered from baldness. There are two types of hair transplant in Switzerland procedures; the strip method and the follicular unit extraction (FUE). In Strip harvest method, sharp instruments are used to remove a strip from the back of the head or any other part which has good growth. This strip is then dissected into smaller unites and then planted on the bald patch. The wound from removing the strip is stapled together by the use of surgical staples. The FUE procedure involves extraction of individual follicles and then planting these follicles on the bald patch. Before the procedure it is advised that the candidate does some research and finds a good surgeon and clinic for this kind of a procedure. Hair transplant in Switzerland is a sensitive procedure since the whole outlook of a person depends on this and it is difficult to entrust your appearance to a total stranger. The past patients’ testimonies, experiences and results must be observed before engaging any surgeon. Once the surgeon is selected, consultation takes place. During this consultation all the aspects of the procedure are discussed. The surgeon takes his patient’s history of medication and in case of any medical conditions such as diabetes or blood pressure, it is necessary for the doctor to be aware. Apart from this the doctor talks to his patient about his expectations and prepares him about the result of the surgery. Once the cost and all other aspects are finalized, the doctor asks the candidate to cleanse his or her scalp properly before the surgery. Local anesthesia is given to the surgeon at the donor site as well as the recipient site. According to the method chosen, the surgeon removes either a strip or individual follicles. The patient is awake throughout the surgery. If the donor site is at the back of the head, the patient has to lie on his stomach in order to allow the surgeon to collect hair. Once this is done, a break is given and then the follicles or strip units are planted at the recipient site. All the while during plantation, the patient sits straight but in an inclined position. This time may be used to watch television or read a book. Once the follicles or strip units are planted the patient can go home. The surgeon gives a follow up care routine which must be followed to ensure everlasting results. This includes a few pain killers to relieve headache and antibiotics to avoid any infection. The patient is also allowed to use shampoo the day after the surgery to keep the recipient site clean. In Switzerland since the cost is high, may people go to other countries and get cheaper surgeries done while the results are almost the same. Hair transplantation in Switzerland is an expensive procedure, although the same steps and techniques of surgery are offered in Pakistan at a cheaper cost.
