Are All Hair Transplants The Same?

Although there will obviously be similar hair characteristics, facial bone structure, hair colour and Norwood hair loss patterning a hair transplant is different for every person and planning needs to be tailored to the individual, not one design is suitable for everyone

The goals need to assessed against the hair characteristics of the individual and the potential pattern of hair loss in the future, especially if treating lower hair loss stages to ensure as hair loss progresses a balanced natural looking result can be sustained

Hair characteristics can be similar to other individuals but not necessarily the same, curly hair, hair colour; higher number of hairs to a follicular unit can alter from person to person and change the approach the doctor decides upon

Such details can be assessed at a hair loss/transplant consultation; under magnification the donor hair density can be measured, hair characteristics, skin laxity assessed and then the master plan made

Understanding theses aspects and more is important to appreciate why a specific number of grafts will be required, why a certain coverage may or may not be able to realised and what density of grafts is required to achieve a natural looking fullness
