Low-Cost Hair Transplants – means low quality? Part 1

At some point during your research, the cost of hair restoration will become a factor. Low-cost hair transplants have become common in recent years. But what is the focus of a low-cost hair transplant? Is it possible to reproduce the technical standards of a bespoke hair transplant? Does the cost impact on the medical aspect of a hair transplant? Does it mean low-cost hair transplants mean low-quality?

A minor surgical procedure

A hair transplant is classed as a surgical procedure. Performed under local anaesthetic and a mild sedative. To help you relax. In the scheme of surgeries, it is a minor procedure. Although it does take time to perform. Often a full working day, occasionally over two-consecutive days. With any surgery, precautions need to be taken. To avoid incidents such as infection. This requires the minimum in medical protocols to maintain a safe surgical environment. As a result, unless the Clinic is not conforming to the medical regulations of their country. The medical standards should not be low quality or standard.

Therefore low-cost does not have to mean your general health is at risk. As long as all medical practices are followed. A hair transplant is a minor surgical procedure anyway. Any potential risk should easily be dealt with. So, if the low-cost hair transplant probably doesn´t mean cuts in health and safety what could relate low-cost, low-quality hair transplants results?

Bespoke Hair Transplant Protocols

What can possibly make the difference for your bespoke hair transplant result?

The devil is in the detail

Compared to other cosmetic procedure and hair transplant take s a great deal of time to perform. The Doctor´s time is taken up during the hair transplant procedure. Performing vital aspects for both the FUT and FUE techniques. When not physically being active in the hair transplant their will be checking and monitoring the technical team. Ensuring the graft quality is maintained. The graft placement is correct. It´s the details that make for the best hair transplant results. That and a good candidate with good hair characteristics. But, the detail in the execution of the hair transplant procedure. Maintaining strict protocols that are adhered to. Will ensure the best hair growth and donor hair management.

This comes at a cost. In respect to the time, a hair transplant can take. As there can be no cutting corners. Because from the Doctor to their technicians they all understand the need to watch every detail. Each team member having a duty. With each process checked and double checked.

Recipient Sites –

This is an area that can make or break a hair transplant result. Just because the hair grows does not make a hair transplant success story. The doctor is careful to assure that the grafts will grow out in a natural direction. Angle, orientation and pattern. In addition, attention is taken to avoid damage to surrounding hair, but at the same time place, a density when grown out will look natural and blend with the surrounding hair.

A carefully dissected graft and trimmed of excess tissue. Has the flexibility to be inserted into the tiny opening. Placed at an angle almost flush with the skin. The recipient sites are made in close proximity to each other. The angle and direction of the slit are dependent on the site position across the scalp.

Hair direction, angle and orientation and density

When the grafts are placed the angles can be so acute that the base of one follicle lies under the shaft of the next. This close proximity of placement must also be undertaken with magnification. To ensure correct direct, depth and graft care. Not to place the graft too deep or crush the bulb. The trimmed grafts have little volume. excess tissue. They are perfect for dense packing but are delicate and easily traumatised. So, both the length and the depth of the slit are important for the hair transplant. With precise placement, it is possible to create a higher density of hair. Compared to previous years and other hair graft placement methods.

The hairline has the highest hair density of placement per cm2. Due to needing so many single hair follicular units. With the need to give definition to the hairline. Without it being too see-through. Behind the single hairs, the larger groupings are placed.

With the placement of larger units. The density of placement can decrease as the number of hairs increases. With this increase in hairs the slit making changes. The slit size must be adjusted for more hairs. Without damaging or crushing the hair follicles. Whilst maintaining the correct angulation, direction and orientation of the hairs.

Creating custom-made recipient sites reduces the risk of shock-loss. Damaging the native hair. Being able to follow the natural growth pattern, angles and hair density.

So, why a Bespoke Hair Transplant Protocols

The old adage less is more can sometimes relate to the graft placement. It´s not always the most amount of hair. But the expertise of the surgeon. The benefits to a bespoke hair transplant. With tailor-made recipient sites.

Greater hair density possible to mimic nature

No need for a 2nd procedure or to use concealers

Custom designed slits to match the size of the follicular units

Improved skin healing

Less likely to cause damage to the skin

Natural orientation created to the existing hair

More natural hair styling possible

Better hair coverage with fewer hair grafts/follicular units

So, What advantages are there to faster hair placement methods?

The microcirculation is just beneath the hair follicle. If the incision is too deep this can be damaged. It is essential to minimise trauma to the skin tissue. Excessive trauma can create ridging or cobblestoning. Or, pitting, the opposite of ridging. As a result, an unnatural ripple or scars over the surface of your skin.

With less understanding of anatomy the slit making becomes nothing more than creating a cut to the skin. No skill. No understanding of depth control, orientation or angle of the slit. With the hair placed at the same time as the slit making is much faster.

The placed hair density is reduced. As a result, the look is less thick, see-through. Lower than natural looking hair density. This can be increased later but not ideal. Going back into the same area is dangerous and can damage the new and old hairs. The other option is to use cosmetic products like a concealer. But this almost defeats the object of a hair transplant.

The Doctor is not making the incisions or the placement. Angle and orientation is less flexible. There is no custom making of the slits so everyone can be different. This creates inconsistency in the hair angles. The hair unit size is less of an issue as the instruments have a less custom-made setup. There is a greater risk of creating skin imperfections with the placement. With the graft being placed either too high or too low. Opposed to custom-managed slits that cannot be altered.

Expectations of perfection or speed, but not both

Enough importance cannot be given to the recipient making and placement of the grafts. It´s a time consuming aspect of the hair transplant. Painfully slow. But the patience and care will show in the result. Improved cosmetic results that are permanent. Less risk or damage to the hair and skin. A superior result, in general, can be achieved from custom made recipient making and placement. A natural looking hairline that is undetectable even to those that know you well. A hair density that will stand the test of time.
