Hair Transplant

HAIR TRANSPLANT Consultation required

We have extensive experience in the field of hair restoration surgery and hair loss. Dr. Liliana Reina has been noted for her performance in the Shapiro Hair Institute, where she has performed more than two million micro-implants follicles. She has performed hair transplant for nearly two decades, in the city of New York, South Florida and Colombia. With sophisticated technology, Dr. Mario Stefan and Dr. Reina do hair transplantation using the latest methods from technical micro-implants to the latest system used today:

The system FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction (Hair transplantation is performed without scarring at the donor site).

She is Colombia’s only doctor to be a member of the International Association of Hair Restoration Surgery, and she has been since 1993. For 25 years, she has done hair surgery in US. She is the founder of Stefan’s Hair Transplant International Medical Group in Cali, Colombia.


How long will it take for the transplanted hair to grow back and what is the rate of growth?

Once transplanted, the hair starts growing and continues to grow for the rest of your life. After the procedure, the roots go into a resting phase for 3-8 months, and then the roots begin to sprout and transplanted hair emerges. It usually takes about 10-12 months for patients to see the overall improvement in density because hair continues to mature and thicken.

Is hair transplantation painful?

Hair transplant surgery is much less painful today than when it first started. Older methods involving scalp reduction have been replaced by hair transplant follicular units, which uses local anesthetics to make it painless. Patients can go home the same day. With the FUHT strip method, analgesics generally require 5 to 6 days to reduce pain in the stitches of the scalp. FUE eliminates the need for stitches, leaving the patient free from cuts and pain.

What are follicular units?

The hairs are grouped into follicular units. There are units of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 hairs. We always consider the follicular units and then calculate transplanted hairs.

Does the follicle transplant have the same characteristics as the normal hair?

Definitely! The transplanted follicle carries the same genetic information as a normal hair because the hair belongs to the patient, preserving the same texture and pattern of hair growth.

Can the transplant affect the rest of my hair?

The hair roots are strong enough to withstand any irritation to the scalp. One hair can be pulled hundreds of times and keep growing. The trauma applied to the scalp during surgery is temporary, and most of the lost hair will grow back in a few months.

Could I lose my transplanted hair after a while?

No, you don’t! The good news is that transplanted hair is removed from the donor area where hair is permanent—usually the back and side. This action resists DHT, which is what’s responsible for hair loss, so the hair will not fall except in cases of illness. You can trust that your transplanted hair will be long lasting.
