The Positive Impact Of Hair Transplant Graft Placement


An important aspect is to blend the newly placed transplanted hair with the surrounding native hair; the angle and orientation of the hair shaft as it exits the scalp to match and ensure all angles match, styling options are easier and maximum coverage achieved

As the donor resource is finite it is important to get as much out of each individual follicular unit or hair as possible, especially with advanced hair loss stages that can require over 7000 grafts to achieve restoration

Continuity between the hair angles can reduce the number of grafts needed whilst still maintaining a naturally looking density; this can also be aided by the natural curvature of each hair

Recipient sites are made, generally between 0.6-1.0mm; even though the incision is micro, scarring will still occur between the graft placed and the sides of the tissue; combined with the varying growth cycles the follicular units are removed in will contribute to the growth rate of the hairs

With the use of custom-made blades as small custom sites can be made to take into consideration the varying sizes of the follicular units, depth control and being able to place safely a high density if required

It is not uncommon for the hairs to grow with a different calibre, can be overtly coarse, sometimes with a kink and even pigmentation changes to the native growing hairs in the donor and recipient

Controlling the curvature at the point of placement can maintain the link between the native hairs and transplanted hairs; allows for greater coverage from one hair to another that increases the shadow created and blocking the light reflection allowing for greater coverage with fewer graft numbers

With a higher Norwood scale there is less native hair to blend with but care still needs to be taken when designing the hair line and crown; the temporal recession angles must meet the sides naturally with gentle orientation changes as well as finer calibre hairs

Matching the pattern of the crown as it can move down the sides and back; the angles can vary greatly due to the spiral nature of the crown and the way the hair drops down the back of the scalp

Over the following months more hairs starts to regrow, with stages of progression generally seen at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months and at the same time the hair matures to resemble the native hair and blends perfectly
