Hair restoration clinic – transplant – implant – hair loss therapy in Patra, Greece
Centered on providing premium quality services in the field of Hair Loss treatment,
BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic was established in 1979 in Greece and is recognized as one of the most specialized hair clinics worldwide.
Starting from the first hair transplant procedure in Greece, our medical teams have ever since performed more than 60.000 hair transplant procedures, securing guaranteed and permanent result of high quality.
Pioneer in the field of research, BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic is active from 2011 in the field of Hair Cloning & Hair Multiplication using stem cells & mesenchymal cells from autologous hair follicles. This innovative technology secures a permanent, safe solution for hair loss either in men or women.
BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic is one of the most innovative clinics around the world. It performs hair transplantations with Growth Factors for an aided result (sooner outgrowth of the new hair, strengthening the old hair, limitation of the hair loss).
Hair Cloning & Hair Multiplication
A significant research on Hair Cloning & Hair Multiplication is conducted by BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic, in cooperation with HAIR APLENTY Ltd. The research is based on the utilization of mesenchymal cells & stem cells from autologous hair follicles.
In search of a pioneer & innovative technology in hair transplants, BERGMANN KORD΄s and HAIR APLENTY΄s research holds since 2011 and aims at establishing a minimal invasive process of hair regeneration.
This patented technology has been developed by a specialized team of scientists (principally molecular biologists, dermatologists, and surgeons) and the research aims at ensuring a permanent solution for hair loss in men & women.
The research involves the following steps:Stem cells.
1. Extraction of autologous hair follicles
2. Multiplication of the stem cells in vitro under specific laboratory conditions
3. Infusion of the ad-hoc cells in the thinning or balding areas of the scalp
A basic benefit of this technique is that we extract only a small number of hair follicles and the multiplied cells are then infused in the thinning or balding area of the scalp, while the expected result could be the growth of new hair follicles.
The main advantages of this revolutionary on research application could be the following:
1. The permanence of the results (in comparison to the temporary results of the pharmaceutical hair loss treatments)
2. The surpassing of the limitations in hair transplants (in cases of poor donor supply).
Today, through hair tranplants we are only able to redistribute the existing hair and since we cannot create new hair, patients who have limited donor supply are not suitable candidates for hair transplants.
Hair Cloning & Hair Multiplication are fields of intensive research by scientists through the world. The permanent character of the new treatment, along with the minimal invasive process and the fact that stem cells are a significant source of cells, all are parameters that can establish the new treatment as an exceptional alternative treatment for hair loss.
Hair Transplantation – Hair Transplants in BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic
Hair transplantation is the only permanent medical solution for the treatment of Androgenetic Alopecia. As opposed to former techniques, up-to-date hair transplantation techniques can accomplish completely natural aesthetic results that are absolutely undetectable, provided they are performed by specialized, experienced doctors who have all the necessary skills.
The nature of hair transplantation
In order to fully understand the process of hair transplantation, it is important to describe the natural way of hair growth:
Hair grows in naturally occurring groups of 1-4 hairs that are called Follicular Units. Those consisting of one hair are allocated along the frontal hairline and as we move towards the back of the scalp, hair follicles constitute groups of 2, 3 or 4 hairs.
Follicular units are complete biological units that comprise nerves, blood vessels, sebaceous glands, collagen and the small muscle arrector pili. Each follicular unit has a predetermined genetic definition.
In cases of hair loss, hair follicles on the front and top of the scalp are susceptible to the presence of the hormone Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), derivative of testosterone.
Testosterone, with the help of the enzyme 5-a reductase is converted into DHT, which due to its presence on hair follicles is responsible for hair miniaturization (gradual shrinking of hair follicles that leads to gradual shrinking of hair). Hair loss is the final stage of hair miniaturization. But hair follicles on the back and sides of the scalp – in what we call the stable hair growth donor area – preserve their genetic resistance to androgens and thus to hair loss.
Hair Transplantation is the receiving of follicular units from the donor area and their reimplantation to the area of hair loss.
The reimplanted hair follicles maintain their genetic resistance to hair loss and continue to grow normally throughout a life time. As Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation reproduces the exact way hair grows in nature, it can provide completely natural results.
New hair will start growing progressively and the first signs of growth will appear in 3 months. Complete results can be accomplished in approximately 10 months. New hair accepts any kind of coiffure technique and does not need any special care. Besides, it will have no difference from the pre-existing hair.
The medical teams
Each BERGMANN KORD medical team is comprised of a head doctor, 2 assistant doctors, an anaesthesiologist and a 4-membered specialized medical staff. Hair transplantation at BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic is a painless, safe medical practice of mild gravity, but demands special skills and a highly developed aesthetic perception by the doctor. Hair transplantation should be an optimized combination of science and aesthetic flair. Α successful hair transplantation should be absolutely undetectable, but have completely detectable, beneficial impact on all aspects of the patients΄s lives.
Length of the procedure
The procedure lasts a few hours, but time goes by pleasantly and calmly, as you can have a conversation with the medical team, watch TV or simply relax. After the end of the procedure you return home. Hair transplantation at BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic is performed in fully equipped operating rooms for surgery, through local anaesthesia.
Return to usual activities
In a few days you can take up again your usual activities and in many cases you are able to return to work even on the day following the procedure.
All hair transplantations at BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic are performed in state-of-the-art, privately-owned operating rooms equipped with the latest technology, where the strictest protocols of hygiene and safety are fully abided by.
Hair transplantation techniques
Hair transplantation should be as unique for each patient as his fingerprint.
Given the fact that there is not just one and only solution proper for everyone, BERGMANN KORD doctors are fully experienced in the most advanced hair transplant techniques and implement that or those that are suitable for each candidate.
In some cases there is a need for a combination of techniques in order to ensure a flawless result.
The main difference between the FUT and the FUE technique lies in the receiving of follicular units.
➢ FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation): follicular units are received through microscopic dissection of a single strip of hair removed from the donor area.
➢ FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction): follicular units are extracted one by one from the donor area.
In order to provide a completely individualized hair transplantation to the patient, our doctors draw up and then implement a Personalized Hair Transplantation Plan that is unique for each patient and that therefore leads to a personalized aesthetic result.
Post operative care
At BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic they create a personal medical record for each patient in order to closely monitor each case. Individualized care is also provided after the hair transplant procedure at BERGMANN KORD. After the procedure, you will be given orally and in written all the necessary post operative instructions, and we are also providing you with round-the-clock medical care.
The day after the procedure you will come to our clinic for your first hair wash and examination by the doctor. Then you will be given the schedule of follow–up appointments with the doctor (the appointments are set at the end of the 2nd week and in 3 and 10 months after the procedure) for the checking and recording of the post operative course. BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic continues to stand by all patients for any hair-related advice or information.
Basic parameters of hair transplantation at BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic
Hair transplantation does not create new hair and cannot stop hair loss; it redistributes the existing hair from areas of the scalp with adequate density to the areas affected by hair loss. That means that it cannot provide a full head of hair and basic prerequisite for someone who wishes to have a hair transplant procedure is to have adequate donor hair supply.Hair transplant doctors. Medical team.
The final result varies from person to person, as different parameters have to be considered in each case: the facial characteristics, number of transplanted follicular units, shaft diameter (fine hair provide less density), hair color and texture, skin color, etc. Thus, in the case of 2 different sessions involving the same number of follicular units in different persons, the result will be different for each.
The BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic doctors establish a Personalized Hair Transplantation Plan for each patient in order to provide an individualized hair transplantation that is completely aligned with the patient΄ s personal desires, characteristics, age and style.
Hair transplant procedure
BERGMANN KORD hair transplant procedures aim at the improvement of one΄s aesthetic appearance without any changes to the basic structures of his physiognomy.
After having a hair transplant procedure, one should have the best possible aesthetic appearance that is absolutely matched to his profile.
Hair transplantation is a predefined process that is performed through certain steps – but is always different according to the patient’s needs- and the BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic doctors observe the highest standards at every single stage of the process:
– Follicular units are carefully extracted and kept intact, either through microscopic dissection of the tissue in FUT or one by one in FUE
– Follicular units are classified according to the number of hairs they consist of
– Follicular units are protected until the time they will be reimplanted
– The appropriate recipient sites are created
– Follicular units are transplanted to the recipient sites
During follicular units placement, the BERGMANN KORD Hair Clinic doctors take into account all the necessary parameters that will define a natural result:
– Proper direction of follicular units so that they become fully harmonized with the growth conditions of the recipient area
– Appropriate distribution of follicular units to the thinning area, in order to ensure maximum density
– Effective combination of all factors that allow a refined and natural frontal hairline. Hairline is seen at first sight and must be a mild frame for the face and the most natural link between forehead and hair. Many skills are therefore required by the doctor, not only for the initial design of the hairline but for its creation as well.
