The amount of hair that is available for transplantation depends on the flexibly and laxity of the scalp in the donor region. To increase the amount of donor hair that is available for transplantation, and to minimise scarring after surgery, we ask patients to carry out deep massage of the scalp for 10 minutes twice a day.
The following videos demonstrate the massage technique and if you have any questions regarding the video please do not hesitate to contact the clinic.
