Predicting Advancing Hair Loss And Preparing For It

To create a natural result from surgical hair restoration requires understanding what can be achieved with the hair resources available and then distributing the hair over the surface area to maximum effect from the hair line to the crown if required

When initially planning to restore an area of hair loss the surrounding areas also need to be assessed, weak, miniaturised hair that may still be giving coverage will recede in the future; placing into miniaturised areas will help to ensure the first hair transplant achieves a solid result

As not all individuals will suffer from advanced hair loss some will require less restoration than others, but it is important that the donor supply, which is finite is not totally depleted to ensure restoration in the future can be carried out

Planning is vital from the first procedure, understanding hair loss for the majority of men is progressive; a genetic hair loss pattern can be a guide but not the rule and it is a gamble to just rely on this information

For the vast majority of men hair loss is progressive, only a small % of men will only recede to have a mature hair line; male pattern baldness follows stages of progressiveness, frontal third hair loss to total loss of hair over the top of the scalp

Only a very small % of men can ever achieve total restoration of a high NW scale hair loss pattern in a single operation; and normally the crown even if covered will have a lower density of hair placed

If total restoration cannot be achieved in a single procedure then it is important there is no demarcation line between the native hair and the transplanted area; as this will leave an unnatural pattern of hair growth

If hair loss progresses to an advanced level and too high a density has been placed over the hair line and frontal third it will become impossible to maintain the same density over the mid-section and sustain a balanced result

Correct donor hair management, understanding the power of hair characteristics and using the precise instruments will allow for a natural looking fullness to be achieved and treat progressive hair loss to sustain natural balanced hair coverage
