Getting the best hair transplant
When hair loss starts. For many, it can be a stressful time. Whereas for others, it has no impact. For those that do care about losing hair. A hair transplant is one available option available. But, getting the best hair transplant is not always simple. As there are many options. Many claims of new techniques. As a result, it can take time to research. Making the correct decision. This will result in getting the best hair transplant. Consequently, restoring any lost self-confidence and self-esteem. All can affect aspects of our lives, business and personal. There are no barriers, age, gender, or genre.
Good Goals and Expectations
An important aspect of getting the best hair transplant. Is to ensure the goals and expectations can be achieved. It is common when younger. Suffering from hair loss. To opt for a fast and permanent option. As a result, many look directly at a hair transplant. Whereas a hair loss treatment is likely to be a better option. Especially if hair loss is minimal. When a hair transplant is suitable. Aspects such as hairline design, hair coverage, and natural-looking hair density need to be planned. Especially, if hair loss is potentially still active. As a result goals and expectations must be measured and realistic.
The same can be said for more advanced hair loss stages. Normally associated with an older candidate. But a higher Norwood stage is possible even in the 20s. Due to the hair loss pattern. Treating advanced hair loss has a few concerns. Firstly the surface area to treat. Expanding from the temples to the crown. Secondly the quality of the donor hair. Whether there is enough hair. As a result, if the donor hair is limited. Creating a balanced natural hair coverage becomes important.
The same applies to technical aspects of a hair transplant. For instance, hair density. A hair transplant is partially an illusion of hair density. As it is typically not possible or impractical. To match the hair density of the existing hair. In fact, if this was required. A hair transplant would only work for minor hair loss stages. For example a hairline. Because the donor hair is finite. Consequently, there would not be enough hair to treat advanced hair loss stages. Even medium hair loss would not be treatable. Hair characteristics help to make up for the lack of hair. As a result, when the hair transplant has matured. The hair blends naturally with the existing hair. Creating the look of fullness and density. Subsequently underlines the importance to have an open dialogue with the doctor. Hair characteristics are often an underrated aspect of a hair transplant result.
Graft numbers vs hair coverage
Going back to the hair characteristics. As they can alter the number of grafts required by as much as 30% in some cases. As a result the better the hair characteristics will reduce the number of grafts required. Consequently fewer grafts to treat advanced hair loss stages. Therefore the graft number, or graft count. Is only the conclusion of the calculation. Rather than fixing the hair transplant procedure on a fixed number to be achieved.
Aspects such as hair calibre. Thick or fine hair shafts. The curl or wave to the hair shaft. Compared to straight hair. Also the contrast between the hair colour and the skin complexion. All these and more create a hair transplant result. With a relatively small number of hairs. Compared to the original number covering the scalp. As a result, only take the number of grafts used as a guide. Always consider natural hair characteristics. As a result, when comparing try to compare like for like. Similar hair qualities.
Artistic and surgical skills
A hair transplant is a surgical procedure. Both FUT and FUE techniques. The doctor has to perform specific areas of the procedure. Usually aided by a well-trained. In-house technician team. All work as one to ensure the patient is the number one priority. With the procedure performed in an efficient manner. Notwithstanding the attention to detail and quality.
The hairline is generally considered the most important aspect of hair restoration. Largely because the hairline frames the face. Complements the bone structure. Hairline planning can be a compromise between the patient and the doctor. As it is important everyone is happy. The individual feels the hairline is their choice. As well as the doctor feeling they have created a natural look. Largely because a hair transplant is permanent. As a result, will not move. An adolescent hairline looks fine on a younger man. But not mature over time. To complement the changes over time. to match the age and facial features of a more mature individual.
The face is not symmetrical. Although it may seem that way. With minor changes, lumps, and bumps that alter one side to the other. Even the temple points of a hairline. Can be slightly different heights. But that is what makes a hairline look natural. Creating a hairline is an artistic skill first and foremost. Followed by the surgical skill to position the hair units. The angle and orientation of the hair. The lay of the hair. Including the density. Altering the density as the hairline moves from one side to the next. Creating a feathered hair placement. As a result, when grown out a soft natural hairline is the result. Along with only using single hair units over the first few mm´s. Behind using multiple hair units. To increase the density and fullness.
Starting the hair consultation process
Everyone has a finite supply of donor hair. That being the hair around the back and sides of one’s head. Although more recently body hair has been used. But, this also is finite. As well as needing to be suitable. As a result, having a thorough hair assessment is important. Firstly to assess the hair characteristics. Along with age, and the hair loss pattern. Any assessment should be realistic about the results. Otherwise, an individual’s expectations may be too high.
The consultation can start online. especially if you are a distance from the Clinic. Or simply have limited time to spare. It should include sending your personal and hair loss detail.
