This procedure was developed in the plastic surgery field for the purpose of achieving aesthetic results, virtually without visible scars.*
A Gardel, the Trichophytic Closure Technique is used strictly when follicular units are harvested through the removal of a thin strip of skin from the sides and/or back of the head.
Each individual hair – along with its roots and follicles – is then processed under a microscope and transplanted to the receiving area using Gardel Transplant Techniques, where they will soon begin their new and permanent growth.
*NOTE: Not all people heal the same, and sometimes, due to genetic traits, undesirable scars may form, even when the surgical procedure is perfectly performed.
1. The donor area is removed
There you can see where the incision was made.
2. Area where the incision was made
We locate the cutting area where it was taken the donor area.
3. Diagonal Cut
A diagonal cut of 1mm is made on the lower edge.
4. The surplus is removed
5. Joining the edges
The edges of the scalp are joined with a special suture without tensioning.
6. Hair growth
In a period of 3 months the follicles that remained in the lower part of the scalp will form hair that will remain on the scar making it practically invisible.
