Talizi at the International Seminar of transplantologist, Seoul, South Korea, May 2008
The international seminar sought to provide a forum for the exchange of practice between surgeon-transplantologists from Europe, Asia and America. Owing to fact that the seminar took place on the Asian continent, and that the issue is yet to receive adequate attention, We presented a report on “The specifications of hair transplantation in Asian patients”, based on observations made in Talizi in recent years.
Over the course of the seminar, a few demonstrative surgeries were conducted, with surgeons putting a number of techniques for follicular unit extraction, and increasing the plasticity of the donor zone.
Akaki Tsilosani had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with Korean transplantology’s spokesman, Jung-Chul Kim, and with representatives from Japanese, Canadian, and Israeli schools. He was proud to discover that many of them had heard of our center, as well as our achievements in follicular extraction and grafts processing, both having gained us reputation as a leader in our field. We were once again convinced that in hair transplantology – as in any other medical field – there cannot be any absolute, unequivocal decisions. One cannot say unequivocally that the FUE method is more effective than the strip method, that horizontal notches are preferable to vertical and so on.
We even discussed the optimum age for hair transplant surgery with MD Alex Gizburg shedding some fascinating light on the subject.
We can say with pride that our technique for preparing graft as well as our anesthesia procedures appeared much more effective than many of the others presented at the seminar.
We also finally received an explanation to why in the overwhelming majority of clinics, surgeons don't make large scale (3,000+) graft transplants. The basic problem is the processing of the grafts, which should take place both quickly and carefully. The quality and speed with which Talizi’s assistants carry out processing has received much praise from others in the field.
