magnified minigrafting involves transplanting individual hair follicles
obtained from a donor site into small incisions made throughout the recipient
site. The hair follicles are dissected under magnification for optimal results.
Treated with Microscopically Magnified Minigrafting:
Microscopically magnified minigrafting may be
performed in cases of alopecia.
Non-surgical alternatives to microscopically
magnified minigrafting include finasteride and minoxidil. Hair grafting and
scalp reduction are surgical alternatives to the procedure.
with Microscopically Magnified Minigrafting:
Microscopically magnified minigrafting is performed
with a local anesthetic.
Complications from Microscopically Magnified Minigrafting:
Possible risks following microscopically magnified
minigrafting include swelling, numbness, itching and a negative reaction to the
anesthesia. It is also possible to experience temporary crusting.
after Microscopically Magnified Minigrafting:
The prognosis for a positive end result following
microscopically magnified minigrafting is good.
from Microscopically Magnified Minigrafting:
Total recovery from microscopically magnified
minigrafting takes two to four months.
