How To Continue Successful Surgical Hair Restoration?

The initial decision to undergo surgical hair restoration obviously focusses on the immediate problem, the hair loss pattern an individual suffers from at the time of the initial hair transplant session

As hair loss, in particular male pattern baldness is progressive the decision when to start restoration and the plan or design is crucial to the long term happiness of the candidate; as the ultimate pattern of hair loss can be hard to predict

The donor hair resource is a finite entity and after every hair transplant session, be it by FUE or FUT hair transplant techniques will alter and less and less hair or follicular units can be removed over time

A plan must be made from the outset how future hair loss will affect the result and how a successful, balanced and natural coverage can be achieved; individuals have different goals from a hair transplant, not all individuals are looking for the appearance of a full head of hair, but all individuals are looking for a natural result

An average donor density is around 75 follicular units per cm squared; the density of FU´s will differ around the sides to the back of the head with the highest concentration of hair being around the back, or the occipital area

If the starting donor hair density or general hair and scalp characteristics are substantially below average then surgical hair restoration is probably not the option an individual should take; although a weak donor can treat relatively minor hair loss it will not be able to sustain more aggressive hair loss patterns

As a hair transplant is not viable to reverse, leaving signs of a surgical procedure, planning with the future in mind and the individual being aware of the limitations a hair transplant has can go a long way to long term successful hair restoration

Considerations to be taken into account besides the donor area qualities are: age of the candidate, hair loss patterns on both sides of the family, the goals of the individual and hair line placement

On higher Norwood scale hair loss sufferers it can be easier to predict future hair loss, and at the same time achieve total coverage from hair line to crown in one procedure on the right candidate, reaching 6000 plus grafts with the FUT technique

Even if hair loss continues it is likely a much smaller procedure would be required in the future to sustain a natural pattern of hair growth. Minor hair loss will require repeatedly entering the donor area to repair smaller areas of hair loss

Constant entering of the donor impairs the skin healing over time, can increase miniaturisation of the hair, change the skin laxity and donor density; very likely reducing the potential number of grafts that can be safely removed

A hair transplant success can be measured on many levels, patient happiness being paramount, but also how the donor area is managed to ensure the minimum number of grafts are used but the maximum natural coverage is achieved
