Meet Dr. Patrick Mwamba, an esteemed expert in the realm of hair transplant surgery with a focus on the non-linear scar approach called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). With over two decades of experience refining this technique, he is often regarded as a co-creator of the popular FUE method used globally today.
State of the Art Surgeries
In Brussels, patients travel from all over the world to receive state-of-the-art surgeries from Dr. Mwamba. As a leading expert in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), he has developed a unique three-step Isolation procedure called Follicular Isolation Transplantation (FIT) that sets it apart from traditional FUE methods. The FIT technique utilizes specialized tools such as customized punches and requires patients to sit rather than lie down during the procedure. This allows multiple surgical actions to be performed concurrently and reduces the transection rate, making it suitable for more challenging hair types. Dr. Mwamba’s innovative approach is attracting patients worldwide, seeking optimal results and minimizing the risk of complications.
In Brussels, patients now have access to groundbreaking hair restoration techniques developed by Dr. Mwamba. Among the innovative methods he has created are the completely FIT and FUE farming options, which effectively address issues with damaged donor areas. Interested individuals can easily obtain online quotes and consultations by completing a patient request form on their website. Dr. Mwamba’s cutting-edge procedures are changing the landscape of hair restoration and bringing hope to those struggling with hair loss.
Recognition and Awards
In the realm of hair transplant surgery, Dr. Mwamba’s accomplishments have not gone unnoticed. He has been the recipient of multiple esteemed awards, recognizing his contributions to the field. One such accolade is the ABHRS Diplomate, an unique distinction given only to few physicians specialized in follicular grafting. Dr. Mwamba’s pioneering efforts in the field of FUE have earned him high regard and esteem from his peers, patients, and the greater medical community as a whole.
In 2006, Dr. Mwamba launched the WHTC in Brussels, Belgium. The WHTC provides patients with advanced and state-of-the-art hair restoration options. Responding to surging demand, a new facility was established in Atlanta, USA, in 2020. Dr. Mwamba personally conducts all surgeries at both clinics, commuting between the two cities every fortnight.
Research and Presentations
Throughout his professional trajectory, Dr. Mwamba has conducted numerous studies and presented various hair transplant topics at international scientific conferences. Among his presentations, he has tackled transection rates associated with multi-blade versus single-blade strip harvesting, hair angulations in diverse scalp regions, the use of stereoscopic microscopes in hair transplant marketing, and assistance for surgeons in hair transplantation procedures. In addition, he has also calculated density using the follicular isolation technique.
Dr. Mwamba has been a regular participant and speaker at the ISHRS since 2006, where he has delivered lectures on several hair transplant topics. In 2010, Dr. Mwamba became one of the pioneers of FUE hair surgeons in the world to provide unshaven FUE hair transplant, which avoids shaving the donor or recipient areas.
