The Live Event in Florence

Thanks to the work of Dr. Chiara Insalaco, a live event was organized in whichthe various techniques of hair autotransplantation were demonstrated. During the workshop, three operating rooms were set up in which three different types of procedures were performed on patients suffering from alopecia androgenetics.

 

Operating room 1: Strip+FUE technique for long hair

In the first operating room, the applicability of the combined Strip and techniques was demonstrated Strip and FUE to long hair. One thousand follicular units were transplanted for gulf reconstruction (u.f.) on a 37-year-old patient suffering from androgenetic alopecia and treated with minoxidil and finasteride for one and a half years.

The group was led by Dr. Vincenzo Gambino of Milan who demonstrated the Strip technique. , Along with him was Dr. Otavio Boaventura from Belo Horizonte, Brazil who, demonstrated the long hair FUE technique using a device, known as “Trivellini Mamba.” The peculiarity of this device is the presence of a punch with a ring suitable for long hair, also known as “Ring Long Hair Punch.”  Follicular units were implanted with “Lion Implanters “.

 

Operating room 2: FUE technique with partially shaved hair

The goal of the team in the second operating room was to demonstrate the FUE Technique on a 54-year-old patient for reconstruction of the crown area. The technique, also known as “Partial shaven FUE,” shaving only the donor area, had a target of 1000 f.u. to be implanted in the crown area.

The group in this room was led by Dr. Piero Tesauro of Milan, president of SITRI. Along with him were Dr. Mauro Speranzini of São Paulo, Brazil, who demonstrated the use of the “Brazilian Beltec” device by means of the Waw punch or Mamba punch, inserting u.f.’s with “Rainbow blunt” implanters into pre-created recipient sites; Dr. Nilofer Farjo, ISHRS president, who highlighted the use of the latest version of Dr. Devroye’s “WAW” tool with trumpet punch; Dr. Moonkyu Kim, of South Korea, who demonstrated the use of his multi-graft sharp implanter known as “INRUT.”

 

Operative room 3: FUE technique with shaved hair

The team, led by Dr. Marco Toscani of Rome, performed the operation on a 28-year-old patient with androgenetic alopecia. Joining Dr. Toscani were Dr. Tayfun Oguzoglu from Istanbul, Turkey, and Dr. Georgios Zontos from Denmark. Dr. Oguzoglu used Dr. Umar’s “Zeus” instrument by means of a blunt flared punch and classical forceps to insert u.f.’s, also demonstrating a customized method with Implanters.

In contrast, Dr. Georgios Zontos demonstrated the use of the new Flared punch using the “Ertip” device to remove follicular units. The insertion was done through Sharp Implanters.
