Scalp Laxity Exercises
The FUT Hair Transplant technique relies on removing a linear strip from the donor area , the sides and back of the scalp. The size of the strip will be dependent on how many grafts are required, but also the hair density and skin laxity. A person with average characteristics will be able to achieve 3500-4000 graft in a single procedure
Scalp laxity exercises can help to improve the elasticity of the skin allowing for easier extraction and larger procedures; on the right candidate reaching 5-7000 grafts in one procedure.
Find the area that has the ridge running along the back of your head, occipital and clasp your hands and place on the back of your head, then the same with the sides, pull your hands toward your forehead and back down, while at the same time moving your scalp up and down.
Ensure enough pressure is applied to move your scalp, not just your hair; perform the exercise for 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes in the evening. Ideally for maximum effect start the exercises at least 6 months prior to your surgery.
Scalp laxity exercises on the right candidate with extensive hair loss can mean the difference between achieving total coverage and natural density in one procedure, opposed to multiple operations, saving you time & money.
