“If there is one single important event in the educational sense for us doctors who are doing hair loss treatments and performing hair transplantation, it is the Annual congress of International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS). This society brings together doctors from around the world who are engaged in this field of medicine, providing opportunities for education, setting out regulatory norms, determining current trends in the treatment of alopecia. It is a very interesting and colorful society because it gathers doctors of different specialties that perform hair transplant procedures. Most of them are plastic surgeons and dermatologists, followed by general practitioners, gynecologists, internists, ENTs, and there is even one urologist. It is interesting how we all entered this world of hair follicles some by choice, some by circumstances. Once a year, ISHRS has its Annual Congress and to me this is the fourth one I’ve attended. It has never been more participants from around the world, and congress took place in Chicago. Workshops on various topics were held every day, and in the meantime there were lectures in another room. The main topics this year were certainly FUE technique and comparison FUE technique with FUT technique, then side effects of finasteride in treating hair loss, and the increasingly important role received PRP therapy and stem cells as latest, possible therapies.

This year I had great honor to be part of Newcomers session. This session, that opened the Congress was designed so new members get acquainted with the old members to hear their experiences. My role was to present my own experience from the moment I observed my first hair transplant in life, until today when I addressed them as someone with experience, someone who was able in a relatively short time to accomplish a lot in Serbia, as well as in The United States. It was wonderful to talk about this special experience of learning, working, team building, relationships with the patient, to talk what I’ve learned from my patients, scientific work, and then on the development of an international career as an instructor for hair transplantation and hair loss researcher. After this lecture, I joined the audience. I think this was my favorite lecture that I have ever given.

Also, I presented a new technique of scar correction using adipose tissue and grafts, on which we are working intensively, which now provides exceptional results.

I learned a lot, I am very happy with the quality of work that we can offer to our patients, I saw my dear friends who are members of the ISHRS, and I had a little time to get to know Chicago, a beautiful city that I was impressed with its uniqueness.

 

Until the next Congress in Panama in 2016, we are eagerly working …

Discussions are very active, subjects are up-to-date and you can find plenty of information exchanged by physicians performing this technique. This is definitely the most popular, international network of its kind that can be found on the Internet.

Gorana Kuka, MD together with surgeons Jeffrey Epstein, MD and Anthony Bared, MD published paper in the prestigious expert magazine Facial Plastic Surgery Clinics of North America on the subject of hair transplantation in various ethnic groups. As hair transplantation differs depending on ethnicity, those differences were published in this expert article. Why it is difficult to perform FUE extraction in black people? Why it is particularly easy in Asian people? Is the implantation the same in different ethnic groups? Who heals fastest?

Due to the universal subject, this article became very interesting in North America where all ethnic groups are present.

NOVO- TERAPIJA PRP (PLATELET RICH PLASMA)

 

Plazma bogata trombocitima (PRP terapija) našla je uveliko svoju primenu u različitim granama medicine, a sve više se primenjuje u estetskoj medicini.
Jedna od važnih primena ove vrste terapije je I u borbi protiv opadanja kose.
Opadanje kose postaje sve češći problem muškaraca I žena, mladih I starih, onih sa I bez genetske predispozicije. Više nema tako jasnog pravila koga će ono pogoditi, a njegovu prognozu je vrlo nezahvalno dati.

 

Uveliko se u Hair Center Serbia javljaju jako mladi muškarci I žene koji se susreću sa uznapredovalom alopecijom. Kod žena je možda ovaj problem malo složeniji jer zahvata veliku površinu skalpa, pa je gotovo nemoguće razmišljati o transplantaciji kose kao rešenju, već se mora krenuti sa nekim drugim terapijama.

 

PRP terapija se zasniva na činjenici da se veliki broj stimulativnih faktora rasta nalazi u nasem organizmu – u krvi. Odredjenim procesima njihov broj se umnoži nekoliko desetina puta. Dobijena plazma obogaćena trombocitima I faktorima rasta se potom ubrizgava u derm kože glave. Stimulacija se vrši dvostruko- ubrizgavanjem direktno u derm ili prelaskom jednim mikroigličnim rolerom preko kože glave. Time dolazi I do nastanka novih krvnih sudova koji dopremaju više hranljivih elemenata prema folikulu dlake.
Vladana Kojadinović, 33 godine iz Beograda
vladana“Pre oko šest meseci sam uradila tretman u Hair Centru Serbia. Imala sam jako slabu kosu, koja se jako promenila nakon dva porodjaja koja sam imala. Dlaka je bila krta, lomljiva, a kosa toliko retka da sam znala sve moguće metode kamuflaže. Onda sam čula za PRP metodu I uradila sam tri tretmana kako je dr Gorana savetovala. Vec posle prvog tretmana, videla sam promenu. Kosa se manje mastila, dlaka je postala jaka I sjajna. Onda je počela I nova dlaka da se javlja, tako da se moja gustina poboljšala sigurno duplo. Sad imam ono sto sam oduvek htela-normalnu kosu I ne moram više da se sakrivam.”-kaze Vladana Kojadinović iz Beograda, jedna od upornih pacijentkinja u borbi protiv opadanja kose.
Intervencija se obavlja u operacionoj sali u kratkoj intravenskoj sedaciji zbog komfornosti samog pacijenta. Prvo se uzme uzorak krvi pacijenta, koji se uputi na pripremu. Koža glave se prvo predje mikro dermarollerom, dok se plazma priprema. Potom se učini ubrizgavanje plazme po svim regijama gde je kosa tanka ili nedostaje. Sam proces traje oko pola sata I istog dana pacijent odlazi kuci.
Kosa može da se pere vec idućeg jutra I nema nikakvog odstupanja od svakodnevnih obaveza.

 

plazma-prp

 

PRP metoda je savremen metod koji koristi sopstvene potencijale organizma u borbi protiv opadanja kose što je negde osnova regenerativne medicine u koju duboko verujemo.
