Our Hair Transplant Team
We believe proper training is important to build a world standard hair transplant team. Our staff were sent overseas to be personally trained by Dr Pathomvanich for up to one whole year. On completin of training they were assigned to a role most suited to their abilities. Regular meetings are held to discuss cases and the latest development. Frequent visits were made to hair transplant clinics overseas to exchange ideas and techniques. Since 2007 we have been attending international medical conferences and workshop to update our skill and knowledge. Staff were selected carefully to provide you with the best medical care and service. Our surgical team has at present expanded to 13 members . This should be the largest teams in Hong Kong.
The Advantage of a Large Team
Once hair follicles are removed from the body, they have a limited survival time. The final result depends largely on how many grafts will live to grow. More people working means less preparation time and more graft survival. The FUT-X hair transplant technique has the potential to improve the appearance of a Class V patient just in one session. Man power is mandatory for FUT-X! A large surgical team makes it possible to transplant more than 4,000 grafts (or 7,000 - 8,000 hair) in just one session.

Postop Hair wash
We strive to get the best possible result for you, taking care of every single step. A transplanted hair needs 7 days to re-establish blood supply. It is very fragile in this 7 days, easily damaged. Improper hair wash will have an adverse effect on the graft survival and final outcome.
First Hair Cut
