A Hair Transplant Right For Me?
Anyone Have A Hair Transplant?
H/T is generally used to treat MPB & FPB, but not alopecia
Areata or trichotillamania cases. The fact that every person
keeps hair around the sides and back of their head does not
mean they are suitable for a H/T. Extensive education has
to take place to ensure that the person is aware what can
be achieved and the doctor is aware of the goals of the patient.
Very often, a H/T is a compromise between doctor and patient
after extensive education.
I Get A Full Head Of Hair Again?
art of H/T is all about the illusion of a full head of hair;
logic says you cannot replace every lost hair but you can
mask the baldness to give the illusion of a head of hair.
It is fact that most men do not realise they are thinning
until they have lost 40% of their hair; and because of this
we do not have to mimic nature to give the appearance of a
full head of hair.
Is Donor Management?
is vital to the long-term happiness of the patient; we have
a finite amount of hair to transplant so it is important it
is used wisely. The patient must be educated into the limitations
and the potential for future hair loss, their age, their hair
loss classification and the goals they wish to achieve. Some
men may have home run hair, meaning they can treat any degree
of hair loss whereas others maybe limited to the coverage
that can be achieved.
Are Hair Characteristics?
with better characteristics will have a better potential to
achieve a better result with fewer grafts. Examples such as
course hair, curl, density, skin colour in relation to hair
colour will all lend themselves to a better result.
It Look Natural?
art of a H/T is not just the technical ability of the doctor
but very importantly their flare for design, especially when
creating the front hair line. The doctor who has this ability
to design will create the most natural looking head of hair,
totally undetectable from natural growing hair. This will
make the difference between a good H/T and a great H/T.
