In Derma Hair Clinic

Hair transplant in Greece  by Dermatologist Dr. Karalexis in Athens, specialized since 2002 in both surgical and medical treatments for hair loss after his fellowship  at Tulane University, New Orleans, USA. He has a great clinical experience in Dermatology for more than 20 years and he is the former  Director of Dermatology at the Naval Hospital of Athens, Greece. He obtained his medical degree from Thessaloniki, school of medicine and completed his residency at University of Athens, “Andreas Syggros” Hospital in 1999. He also trained in 2001 in the field of Dermatologic Surgery at “Andreas Syggros” Hospital and soon after at Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana,USA. He is the owner of Derma Hair Clinic  in Athens and he is well respected within the medical community for his technical skill  and surgical artistry.

Many people come from abroad just to have a hair transplantation at our clinic, from countries like the USA especially from California, Florida, Texas, New York, Chicago, Washington, and the United Kingdom. Also from Ireland, Canada, Australia, France, Switzerland, Italy and the UAE.

Hair Transplant with FUT Technique(Strip)

A ‘strip’ of grafts is taken from the back of the head and very carefully divided into smaller grafts. After taking this strip, however, a linear scar is formed that can be seen when the hair is cut short. The most experienced doctors internationally have completely abandoned this technique.

Hair Transplant with FUE Technique (Follicular unit extraction)

With a special tiny tool, one hair follicle (graft) is removed from the back of the head. Then very small holes remain which heal in a few days. I always try not to remove the entire hair follicle-graft and leave a bit of the “bulb” for the hair to grow back on the donor area, so I never have thinning. This technique requires real skill from the doctor, because he has to extract the follicles according to the direction of the hair.

Power FUE or Motorized FUE technique

It is the most modern method of Hair Transplant because we manage to place a greater number of hairs compared to the simple manual FUE technique. We use a special machine that helps remove grafts faster from the donor area, with lower transaction rate.

This is the technique applied by Dr. Karalexis.

    The cost of the procedure is determined by the extent of the area, the number of hair follicles and the chosen method. It is important to know that no doctor can set the cost of hair transplantation before the necessary examination, since it is different for each individual.

    It is a completely safe procedure. As with any surgical procedure, hair transplantation, the expertise and experience of the medical staff undertaking the procedure must be taken into account.
    The various stages of the whole operation require attention to detail so that we can have a perfect result.
    In our clinic, we perform only one procedure per day, exclusively under the supervision of the dermatologist Dr. Apostolos Karalexis, who is the first Greek doctor trained in the U.S. with an official international fellowship program in Hair Transplantation.

    The procedure is performed under local anesthesia only. This means that during the transplant, the patient does not feel any pain, and at the end of the procedure there may only be a slight discomfort or sensitivity.

    In most cases, one session is enough. In cases of severe receding hairline or further hair loss, a second procedure may be applied after a year.
    A hair transplantation with a large number of hair follicles is performed in just one day and takes about 6-8 hours.

    An important choice you are asked to make before the procedure is the choice of the hair transplant method.
    It is worth mentioning that with the Power FUE method, there are no scars or marks left after the procedure. This is because the hair follicles are removed one by one scattered throughout the area, unlike the FUT technique.

    When the procedure is performed by an experienced dermatologist, there is no doubt the result will seem natural.
    At Derma Hair Clinic we guarantee 100% natural results, thanks to our 20 years of experience in the field.

    Every patient and every case is different, depending on the severity and causes of thinning. Hair transplant can be performed at the time the doctor deems it appropriate.

    There is no restriction as to the time of year when the procedure can be performed.

    Usually, one session is enough to permanently cover the problem. However in some cases a second procedure may be required. In such cases it is important that there is an adequate donor area and that at least 6 months have passed since the first operation.

    Gender or age is not a criterion for undergoing the procedure. An examination by a qualified doctor will be required to determine if the donor area is adequate.

    Hair transplant from another part of the body is possible and is called: body hair transplantation. Transplantation of hair from the beard or chest to the scalp can be performed as well as enhancement of body hair from hair follicles of the hair.

    With the FUE technique there is no risk of thinning of the donor area. With his specialized technique, Dr. Karalexis, tries to leave part of the hair follicle “intact” (especially those containing 3-5 hairs) and not remove all of it, so as not to create a thinning in the area.

    No, as the results are permanent. The new hair come from an area where there is permanent hair growth.

    A patient who has undergone a hair transplant can return to his/her daily activities and work from the very next day of the operation. The only “prohibition” that exists concerns intense physical exercise, which is allowed after a few days.

    We have extensive experience in hair transplant in women. Before the procedure is required evaluation by Dr. Karalexis so that we have the right choice of the candidate patient.
