Hair loss is very common. For both men and women hair loss can be a major concern. Finding the correct treatment can take time and research. Before starting any treatment you should discuss your options with a hair loss specialist. Often an online hair consultation can answer many questions. Research must start by isolating your hair loss condition and cause. As a result, the correct treatment can be advised. From medical to therapy sessions to possibly a surgical hair transplant option.

Planning Your Hair Transplant

There are many aspects a hair restoration specialist will take into consideration when considering a hair transplant candidate. Your current and future hair loss stage is one aspect to be diagnosed. Another is less medical and more personal. That being your personal goals and expectations from your hair transplant. An ethical hair restoration specialist will also look at other key areas before making their diagnosis. These areas will include the following:

  • Your Age
  • Family Hair Loss History
  • Potential Future Hair Loss Stage
  • The Use Of Hair Loss Treatments
  • Your Natural Hair Characteristics

When designing a hair transplant the focus needs to not only be on the present but also the potential future result. To ensure a natural look can be maintained if hair loss progresses. As a result a hair transplant is often a compromise between the patient and Doctor. This is especially true with designing the new hairline.

On occasions it is quite common a candidate will have a tendency to want the hairline too high or  too low. This needs to be addressed for the long term natural looking hair restoration. The younger candidate with minor hair loss for example. A rounded adolescent hairline will look fine. But not match the age and facial features of an older man. The younger man still has vivid memories of his original hairline. May want to create the same appearance. Whereas at the opposite end of the scale. An older man with more advanced hair loss over many years. They may fear that a hairline that is not adequately receded may seem unnaturally low. Positioning the hairline too high can also result in an unnatural pattern of hair growth.

A responsible ethical hair restoration specialist will take all these and more points into consideration. If they feel expectations are unrealistic they have a responsibility to inform the candidate. In some cases refuse to perform the hair transplant. If they feel the result will be unnatural over the short or long-term.

The Art Of Illusion and Hair Transplant Results

A hair transplant is possible because some of our hair is immune from the male pattern baldness gene. Even high Norwood Scale stages a man keeps a band of hair around the back and sides of his head. This hair is unaffected by hair loss. As a result can be used for a hair transplant. Of course there is a limit to what can be removed. It is impossible to use all the hair. So a hair transplant has to create the illusion of a good head of hair from much less hair than originally was growing.

As it is not possible to replace like for like hair lost, the distribution of hair is vital to attaining a natural looking result. With either minor or advanced hair loss patterns. Typically, approximately 30% of scalp hair follicles have one hair,  40% have two hairs and 30% of follicles have three to four hairs, but this varies from person to person and ethnic background. When designing a hair transplant it is important for a varied mix of each hair grouping. For example single hair units for the hairline and larger groupings to add the thickness behind.

As it is impossible to place like for like hair density. When the man had a full  head of hair. The effects of trying to reach the same density can  result in trauma to the skin and a poor hair growth. Or an unnatural pattern of hair growing from the head. Therefore some of the art is to give the cosmetic effect that the density is the same, this is most obvious when the hair is longer because it blocks the reflection of light on to the scalp. But when the hair is  short or shaved this effect is lessened because there appears to be less density; although this is obviously not true.

Best Way To Start Your Hair Restoration

The best hair loss stage for a hair transplant therefore is not a simple question to answer. With many aspects to be considered. Some technical, medical and personal. As a hair transplant can successfully treat minor to advanced hair loss. Planning your hair restoration should be the first priority.

First research potential hair loss Clinics that appeal to you. Ideally search Doctors that can offer all forms of surgical hair restoration. This should give you a balanced view of all your options. Between the FUE, FUT as well as Body Hair transplant techniques. A convenient first step to approaching a Clinic is a call back or online consultation.

A call-back gives you the opportunity to ask general questions before making any further commitment. An online consultation will provide your initial hair assessment. From submitting your pictures and details to the Doctor.
