Hair transplant is a method that is effective in treating alopecia, which is why thousands of people every year undergo this intervention that is not very invasive and quickly recovering.
In Latin America, this method reached popularity in recent decades, which generated a “boom” of centers and clinics designed to meet the needs of patients.
Mexico is one of the countries that leads the Latin American hair transplant market.
But this does not mean that it is the only option. Colombia and Brazil have begun to make their way into this market.
In Medellín, there are clinics that offer hair transplants with the help of the Artas robot, a tool used in the United States, Peru and Brazil, which simplifies and improves the hair transplant process.
In addition, the centers offer lifetime follow-up, that is, the patient will receive consultations before and after life-long treatment.
In Brazil, the treatment has become popular in both men and women, although prices are not usually as competitive as in Mexico.
Here, a transplant can cost up to 20 thousand dollars, depending on how many grafts the patient needs to cure alopecia.
In other countries such as Peru, Chile, Ecuador and Argentina, there are specialized clinics in hair grafting, some with more experience and infrastructure than others, but they still do not reach the level of large corporations such as those we see in Mexican territory.
Points to consider
To choose which clinic in Latin America you can opt for a hair transplant, the first thing you should take into account is your geographical position.
If you live in a country in the hemisphere, it is advisable to go to a clinic you have right there. As we already mentioned, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile and Peru, offer good options in terms of hair graft treatments.
The results are based on the compliance of their patients, and apply the techniques known so far, the FUSS, the FUE and the DHI.
This is another point to consider. Not all clinics work with all three methods.
The FUSS technique could be said to be the oldest, but just as effective. With it the specialist removes a scalp strip with everything and hair.
The grafts will be removed thoroughly and then implanted in areas with alopecia.
This technique is the most economical, but the postoperative is more extensive.
Some clinics have already stopped using it, because there are other methods such as FUE or DHI that are less invasive and give equally rewarding results.
The FUE technique consists in using a special tool to extract the capillary grafts, which will then be implanted in the donor area when opening microchannels with a metal or sapphire blade.
Your recovery is less late.
This technique is so far, the most popular in the market. In Mexico, for example, it is the most demanded.
But the most avant-garde clinics are using the DHI method, which allows hair follicles to be removed and grafting almost simultaneously.
This is thanks to a tool called Implanter Choi, which is like a spice of pencil that does the job.
The DHI technique is very popular in women, since, unlike the other two, you do not need to shave the donor area to remove the hair follicles.
Latin America is a relatively new market, but that is not why its work is not of quality and professionalism.
Thousands of people each year travel to this part of the continent to undergo treatment, since in countries like the United States, Spain and others in Europe, a hair transplant is usually much more expensive.
