Hair Transplants in Poland
Poland’s culture is diverse, combining elements from both Eastern and Western Europe. This diversity is echoed in Poland’s literature, music, cuisine and architecture. Some famous Poles include Marie Curie, Frederick Chopin, Nicolaus Copernicus and the most recent Pope John Paul II.
How to get to Poland
Flights to Poland take roughly 3 hours. The national airline is LOT Polish Airlines, although you will probably find cheaper fares elsewhere.
Going by car will work out more expensive when you add up petrol, food, accommodation. It is also a hassle when you are also going to have surgery. Going by train, for example using an Interrail pass travelling through countries, is also time-consuming and potentially expensive. However, it does make for an interesting and exciting way to travel around Europe.
Accommodation in Poland
Accommodation in Poland tends to be very cheap, especially if you opt for a hostel or budget hotel. Book your accommodation in advance to get the best deals.
It is also possible to book accommodation on a farm. The cost of this and facilities available vary depending upon the individual place. It is a nice way to have a different type of holiday and the owners may well help you with any language barrier problems and/or local advice.
Travelling around Poland
There is a good bus (or autobus) network in Poland and timetables are available online or outside of the PKS terminal buildings there will be boards showing these. Most cities will also have a tram (or tramwaj) and sometimes a trolleybus (trolejbus) too. Timetables are usually up in local shops although these are not always accurate. Tickets should be bought before travelling rather than onboard and these tend to be a flat rate, irrespective of duration or length of the journey.
Trains are a better way of getting around, particularly over long distances. Over the summer months it is probably a good idea to reserve a seat to make sure. Timetables and other details can be found online. The company which manage the Polish train system is the Polish State Railways or Polskie Koleje Państwowe (PKP). The fastest and most comfortable form of train is the express (ekspres) which runs intercity and stops at major cities. If you are travelling on this train then it is necessary to book tickets and seats in advance. There is also a fast train (pociąg pospieszny) and the slower, local train (pociąg osobowy) which stops at all of the stations along the way.
A miejsca sypialne is a sleeper train which tends to travel between cities, or sometimes countries, and if you are travelling around a bit then this can save you some money on one night’s accommodation.
With the recent influx of Polish migrants to the UK, many Poles speak excellent English. This is particularly as, as a result of the recent economic crisis, many of those who had moved to Britain have returned to Poland. Finding a specialist who is fluent in English should therefore not prove to be a problem.
Hair Transplant Techniques used in Poland
Strip treatment, or FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant), has been the most common technique for the treatment of hair loss for a long time, and continues to be a popular choice. It is particularly good for those who suffer from advanced thinning. This is because it can be done with comparatively little inconvenience and it allows maximum hair coverage, although you will be left with a subtle scar line. A strip of hair is removed from the back and side of your head, leaving this scar covered by existing hair unless your hair is shaved very close. The follicles removed are then transplanted subtly onto the areas you want treated.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a good technique for those who have minimal thinning, or if you have undergone procedures previously and your donor is damaged or impaired. FUE facilitates the removal of hair in areas that Strip treatment does not. FUE involves small clusters of hair (approximately 1-4 hairs) being very slowly and precisely removed. In this way it is often possible to complete this procedure without causing any scarring, although it cannot be guaranteed. For this treatment to be effective, you will usually have to have your head completely shaved. This facilitates the precision required for the extractions to take place.
If you require either a repair procedure (from a previous treatment that was done badly) or Body Hair Follicular Unit Extraction (BHFUE) then a combination of these treatments may be used. The time taken and potential scarring caused would vary depending upon your individual case.
In the case of all of these techniques, it is important that you speak to your specialist about the necessary after-care to ensure you are pleased with the results of your surgical procedure.
