Galeatomy | Prevents hair loss

Galeatomy prevents baldness among men & women:

A galeatomy is an operation that loosens the scalp (galea aponeurotica) and therefore promotes blood flow to the scalp and the working of the sebaceous glands. This prevents excessive hair loss. Wellness Kliniek Belgium has been performing this operation for over ten years. The results have been assessed according to ISO 9001 quality standards and are extremely successful!

More than 98% of patients are absolutely satisfied and would recommend this treatment.

What is a galeatomy?

It prevents baldness

Hormones and stress can cause hair loss. 
Fortunately there is a solution!

Hormones and stress can make your scalp (galea aponeurotica) tense and taut.
The surgeon makes a small incision (in the hair) above the temples to loosen the scalp membrane (galea).
Your scalp will then move flexibly over the epicranium once more.
The treatment stimulates the circulation in the scalp.
 This improves blood flow (oxygen, vitamins and minerals) to the hair follicles and sebaceous glands, which means that your hair becomes healthy again and excessive hair loss is prevented.

Procedure: 45 minutes under local anaesthetic
