Frequently Asked Questions

How much does hair grafting cost in your clinic?

Cost of hair grafting depends on the number of transplanted grafts (follicular units). In our clinic price of one follicular unit is 1.5 USD. Any consultation in our clinic is free of charge and anonymous.

Can the clinic guarantee satisfactory results?

This question can be divided into two sub-questions:

1)      Will hair definitely grow from transplanted follicles?

2)      How long the hair grown from the transplant will stay in place? Will it fall out in the future?

In general, survival of transplanted follicles is one of the most topical issues of hair transplantology and is determined by the number of factors. In the beginning of 1990ies B. Limmer concluded by his pioneering research that transplanted micrografts have high potential of survival – 80 to 90%, depending on time interval from taking to implanting. D. Seager in 1997 proved that follicular units have higher potential for survival than micrografts. Today it is out of the question, that if hair grafting is performed by qualified personnel using modern methods, hair grows from nearly every transplanted follicle. Our investigations demonstrated that even in unfavourable conditions, when hair has to be implanted into the scars or extremely close to each other, survivability of follicles is close to 100% (see “Scientific Publications”).

As for the hair grown out of transplanted follicles, it is virtually permanent (principle of “genetic dominance” by N. Orentreich, see above). In the course of years transplanted hair can turn grey (just as on the back of the head), but it will never fall out, like eye-brows or beard. If one plucks transplanted hair out with forceps, new hair will grow in its place.

Why hair transplantation is so inexpensive in your clinic?

Throughout the world, hair transplantation is one of the most expensive types of plastic surgery. In the leading clinics of the world, price for one transplanted follicular unit can be as high as 4.0 USD. In TALIZI the procedure is much inexpensive. The question comes naturally, why is it so cheap and whether low price is associated with poor quality. You had a chance to get sure that it is not true. We employ all modern methods and instruments for hair grafting. From the day of its founding in 1998 TALIZI aimed to make hair transplantation easy and affordable for the patients. All scientific and practical activities of the clinic were directed towards this aim. TALIZI never invested in expensive advertising campaigns. Best advertisement for us is our practical result. Our goal is to have as many people transplanting hair as possible. Although, we are aware that even this low cost is not affordable for many Georgians.

How many follicular units will I need? Do I have sufficient donor supply?

Even with the highest degree of male pattern alopecia (VII degree), there are 10 to 12 thousand follicular units left on the back of the head and behind the ears. Out of them, 6000 follicular units can be taken for transplantation during one or several procedures. This amount of follicular units (approximately 12000 hairs) is perfectly sufficient for coverage of bald area of any size. Amount needed for achievement of certain cosmetic effect in individual patient is being determined during face-to-face consult which is free and anonymous. The result depends on the structure of hair (diameter, colour, straightness etc.) rather than on the number of follicular units. Patients can determine approximate number of grafts they  need to achive good results according to the scheme:

I     500-800

II    800-1500

III  1500-2500

IV   2500-3000

V    3000-4000

VI   4000-6000

VII  6000-7000

You can send your picture and our physicians will provide you with more precise information about the number of follicular units to be transplanted.

How painful the transplantation process is?

Owing to original method of local anesthesia invented by A. Tsilosani in our clinic the entire procedure of hair grafting is virtually painless. Furthermore, the process of local administration of anesthetic solution and postoperative period are painless as well.

What are the complications and side effects of hair grafting?

In general, complications are very rare. The procedure is conducted under local anesthesia, general anesthesia is never used. Original anesthetic solution and method used in TALIZI are not accompanied with allergic and anaphylactic reactions. Refined process excludes infectious complications and scarring. Our concept of creating recipient sites minimizes probability of irritation of donor area and development of folliculitis. There are no side effects associated with this operation.

Are there any age limits for hair transplantation?

In case of young (17-25 year old) patients one must consider the scale of continuing hair loss and select surgical tactics according to that.

In general, there are no age limits for hair transplantation. We have performed successful operations on 5-6 year old children (following scarring caused by burns) as well as on 70-75 year old elderly patients.

Are there any contraindications for hair grafting?

Since anesthetic solution used in our clinic is not accompanied with any allergic reactions, it can be said for sure that hair transplantation has no absolute contraindications. Relative contraindications are disturbances of blood clotting and exacerbations of skin diseases. Some surgeons consider diabetes mellitus relative contraindication but we have performed many successful operations on diabetic patients.

How long does rehabilitation after hair grafting last? When can the patient go back to work?

Owing to original methods of hair transplantation used in TALIZI postoperative period is particularly easy. Patients can go back to work the next day after the surgery, unless this is hard physical work. They can wash hair on the second day. Any kind of physical activity is permitted one week after the surgery.

Is there need for special preparation or cutting hair before the surgery?

There are no limitations for hair transplantation in terms of hair length or style. This means that before the procedure patient does not need to go through any kind of preparation process or cut one’s hair. Hair will stay untouched during the transplantation, only the hairs grown from the follicles prepared for the transplantation will be cut.

Is there special treatment needed after hair grafting? How does one care for transplanted hair?

In our opinion, one of the most remarkable benefits of transplanting one’s own hair is that new hair needs no special care: one can wash it with any kind of shampoo, dye it, grow it long or cut it short, wear hat or go without it in hot or cold weather.

Is hair transplantation possible in women?

Hair transplantation is possible in women (see pic.). Besides, in women, as well as in men hair transplantation is indicated to cover scars formed after traumas or burns (see pic.).
