The Preferable Hair Transplant Technique

There are two recognised techniques used by doctors today, Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE); the main variant between the techniques is the manner in which the hair is removed from the scalp

As hair loss can be hard to predict as to how advanced the pattern of hair loss will become a master plan must be made to ensure a balanced coverage can be sustained as well as a natural looking density achieved; even if this means a lower density over some areas, usually the crown

For many the option can be surgical hair restoration, a hair transplant procedure; this is the movement of genetically strong hair to areas of hair loss that will continue to permanently grow even when moved

Some candidates have the option to use either technique due to their hair characteristics and donor quality and achieve solid results; other are better suited one technique and others may benefit from combining both techniques either in a single procedure or multiple procedures over time

When calculating the quality of the donor area, hair density, hair characteristics, skin laxity and the average number of hairs per follicular unit; as well as measuring the surface area to be treated along with the potential surface area then a plan can be put together and the technique required determined

If the donor hair qualities are average or slightly below and the demand for hair is high then the likelihood is FUT will be a better option; this can remove the highest capacity of grafts in a single procedure from the area of the donor that has the highest concentration

When treating lower levels of hair loss the ultimate pattern is impossible to predict, especially with a younger individual; if the case it would be prudent to ensure the donor area can manage the demand for hair over a larger surface area due to fixing a permanent low hair line

Smaller hair loss patterns may benefit more from the FUE technique, although FUE will lower the hair density in the donor if the number of grafts required are relatively minimal the density change can be minor

With higher levels of hair loss or in some repair cases combing the techniques can be of great benefit in achieving the graft numbers and goals of the individual; as this opens the donor to achieve the maximum grafts in a single procedure

Crown Restoration And Progressive Hair Loss

Genetic hair loss can be unpredictable as to how far the pattern of hair loss will develop; a guide will be any hair loss pattern in your family but as genetic hair loss can skip generations and the pattern alter this is only a guide

The desire to “cure” the problem can lead to trying numerous products in an attempt stop hair loss and regrow the lost hair or in some case resort to surgical hair restoration as the cure, a quick fix

If thinking of a hair transplant managing the goals and expectations of the candidate is vital from the very first procedure be it minor hair restoration or advanced hair loss that is being treated

In respect of treatments, three are FDA approved to treat hair loss, laser therapy, an oral table and a topical lotion or foam; results will vary from person to person and sustained use is needed to continue a positive result

Be honest with yourself and with the doctor you ultimately decide upon; nature can only be cheated to a degree and miracles do not occur; not all individuals make a good hair transplant candidate and as frustrating as this may be it never good to start that which cannot be finished

A perfectly good hair transplant can be performed but if the individual is not happy or does not meet their goals in their eyes it will not be a success and this can lead to recriminations against the clinic and the feeling from the patient they have been let down

One area of hair loss that can create long term concerns is the crown or vertex when looking at hair restoration; deciding how and when to treat the area can have good and bad consequences

Treating the crown or vertex can be a technically demanding aspect of surgical hair restoration, largely due to the changing angles and orientation of hairs to recreate the natural spiral that occurs

It is common the crown is the last area to be treated, due to this the highest number of the safe donor has been used on the frontal and mid-sections, reducing the numbers available to maintain the same even density over the crown

The surface area of the crown can be extensive, equalling the frontal and mid-section combined, dropping on the sides as well as the back of the head, making restoration demanding and sometime not practical

If surgical restoration is chosen it is vital to take into consideration future potential hair loss, treating too early can leave an unnatural pattern of hair growth as hair loss progresses; a better initial alternative may be to stabilise the hair loss with a treatment programme, especially if in the early stages of hair loss

Time For Hair Meds Or Hair Transplant

It is important when researching to gain as much knowledge as possible, contact multiple clinics to gain varying opinions as to how they would approach hair restoration, short and long term

As genetic hair loss can be an emotive issue for many men and increasingly woman they can be many claims of cures, to be able to stop hair loss, regrow lost hair but if this was the case it could be assumed that no one would be bald

First, there is no miracle cure for hair loss be it a treatment, medication or surgical hair restoration; although no cure there are treatment and restoration techniques that can help to reduce hair loss and restore area of hair loss over the head; but it is important to know when and how is the best time and which product or technique best serves the individual´s needs

Choosing when to have a hair transplant is crucial to the long term success, too early and a balanced natural result may not be able to be sustained long term as the supply of hair needed will run out

Surgical hair restoration is a permanent solution to cover areas of hair loss over the head, some individuals make better candidates than others and both men and woman can undergo a hair transplant

Planning a hair transplant is different for all individuals; from technical perspective aspects such as hair characteristics, facial bone structure the pattern of hair loss will all be taken into consideration by the doctor as they make a plan how to approach hair restoration

The individual must understand the limitations of a hair transplant, the density required achieving natural fullness, and how hair characteristics can aid or hamper the results that can be achieved

A key to successful surgical hair restoration is open and honest dialogue between the individual and the doctor performing the hair transplant procedure; without this it is impossible to gauge how successful in the eyes of the individual will be

Hair retentions treatments and surgical hair restoration can be combined; this can reduce the number of grafts required from a hair transplant and keep your natural hair growing for much longer

Whichever option is chosen the decision should be taken after careful consideration and professional advice; do not allow yourself to be enticed by miracle cures or promises without qualifying with proof as to what can be achieved

Poor Hair Transplant Results Require Planning And Understanding

Often a hair transplant repair has to be planned over multiple procedures, especially if the donor area has been seriously impaired and restricts the graft numbers that can be safely harvested in each procedure

Dependent on the severity of the initial procedure is may be possible to repair many or all areas and achieve a totally natural looking result and improving the donor area if and when future hair transplants are required

An individual who has gone through a bad experience is understandable cautious before getting back into the chair; but they must also understand that a hair transplant has limitations and clear priorities need to be made

Prioritise areas of cosmetic importance in the recipient area to treat as it is unlikely all areas can be treated at once, so each hair transplant needs to focus on maximising how natural the hair growth, coverage and density appear

The individual needs to understand there are often limitations and as much as it may be hard to live with it is a reality and the end result may not be what the individual first visualised but the priority must be to create as natural look as possible with the limited resources available

In many repair cases the best results can be achieved combining both techniques, FUT and FUE. Combing the techniques opens the possibility to reduce visible scarring and increase the graft numbers attainable in a single procedure

A hair transplant repair requires added skills by the doctor; often there is scarring in the recipient area and this can impair the placement and regrowth of new hair; also poorly angled grafts will need to be removed or camouflaged

All due care must be taken as the trauma and anxiety of a repair patient is high; why a solid education, balanced expectations are required and dialogue between doctor and patient.

A hair transplant repair patient should take their time when researching, also to keep an open mind as to what can be achieved from the repair surgery and how long it may take. At this stage it is important no more mistakes are made

High Norwood Scale Treated In A Single Session

Surface Area = Supply & Demand

So called Mega and Giga Hair Transplants when performed to the highest standard allows the individual to achieve the maximum aesthetic result in the shortest time frame, less down-time away from work and excuses to friends, family and colleagues

The large movement of grafts in a single session; much is dependent on the quality of the donor zone characteristics on how many grafts can be removed safely and maintain the quality of the donor area as best as possible

Technical ability and planning is required to ensure the grafts can be harvested, divided into the natural follicular units, the recipient sites made and the placement of the grafts administered efficiently

The patient must also be prepared when undergoing a large hair transplant procedure; the day will be relatively long and the individual will need the virtue of patience to allow the medical team to perform the operation with efficiency but care

Prior to any surgery the donor and recipient area will have their best properties; the donor having the best density, laxity, no scarring and the recipient has also never been touched or impaired.

For individuals with a high Norwood pattern, Nw4 and above a normal goal is to cover as much of the balding surface area as possible and ideally in a single session to achieve a result in one pass

Individuals suffering from advanced Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) will require anything from 4000 to maybe as much as 8000 grafts or follicular units to achieve total restoration; some candidates will not be able to achieve these numbers due to deficiencies in the donor hair safe zone

There are often compromises that need to be made to achieve a balanced coverage and natural looking density; most common is the hair line position and design

Hair Loss And Donor Hair Miniaturisation

Hair loss can be slow and in the initial stages not recognised; the hair follicle goes through gradually stages before it stops producing hair. The first signs can be the hair shafts becoming finer and shorter

Hair loss is generally associated with the top of our heads, from the hair line to the mid-section and then the crown or vertex.

Certain hair loss types can make surgical hair restoration a bad option, especially when hair loss affects the traditional scalp donor area

Unlike MPB, Male Pattern Baldness or Androgenic Alopecia DUPA does not sustain a localised stable safe zone of hair to be able to harvest from via a hair transplant

MPB can be combined with DUPA hair loss sufferers, with a normal pattern of recession occurring over the top of the scalp and if the hair loss progresses to a high Norwood stage ending with the horseshoe pattern

With DUPA there is a general decrease in hair density of hair randomly but evenly over the scalp, sometimes combined with the miniaturisation of the hair shaft at the same time

Another sign of hair loss, more traditional MPB can sometimes be increased shedding of hair; it´s not uncommon for us to shed around 100 hairs per day, this is not a problem as long as 100 hairs regrow the same day, and then a balance is achieved

Because the initial changes can be subtle they can sometimes only be visible under magnification. Under magnification it is possible to compare various areas of the scalp and the hair calibre

An obvious sign of hair loss is loss of hair density, making the scalp more visible and the recession of the hair line and temples, enlarging the size and surface area of the forehead

When you have a consultation any miniaturisation can be assessed, not just over the top of the scalp but also the sides and back, known in hair transplantation as the donor area. It is usual to have a little miniaturisation in the donor

If a hair transplant is being considered too much hair miniaturisation in the donor area can make a hair transplant not credible. Miniaturised hairs should not be used as they are weaker and may not regrow when transplanted
