Treating Your Crown With A Hair Transplant

Treating Your Crown With A Hair Transplant

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

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.

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 sometimes 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
