Techniques of hair transplantation today

Hair transplantation is an operation that takes hair from the back of the head and moves it to the area of hair loss. The fringe (back and sides) of hair on a balding scalp is known as donor dominant hair which is the hair that will continue to grow throughout the life of most men. The transplantation of this hair to a bald area does not change its ability to grow. Donor dominance is the scientific basis for the success of hair transplantation. Dr. Okuda of Japan first described the use of transplanted hair to repair scarred eyelashes and eyebrows. Unfortunately, the outbreak of World War II prevented his valuable discovery from reaching the rest of the world for two decades. Dr. Norman Orentreich published the first widely read report on hair transplantation surgery in 1959 and the field of hair transplant surgery was born. Candidates for hair transplant surgery are those individuals with hair loss that have sufficient donor hair from the fringe of the scalp to transplant to the balding area. In the past, many bald patients were not suitable candidates for hair transplant surgery but modern techniques have advanced the art of hair transplant surgery so that many more men are candidates. Hair transplantation surgery has improved in leaps and bounds over the past decade. The days of the “plugs and corn rows” which were a consequence of punch grafting of yesteryears are gone and the age of single hair-, micro-, and mini- grafting has arrived. Perhaps the most common thing to watch out for is the doctor who uses plugs to refurbish the hair on scalp. This is an outdated procedure that leaves the client with a scalp that sprouts the same kind of hair that you see on a plastic doll’s head. (Beware!! since some physicians still have not done away with the old and ugly technique of punch grafting. Therefore the importance of asking the doctor in detail about the procedure as advised by our website) With each passing day, international consensus is shifting from single hair transplants to “Follicular Unit” Hair Transplants due to better results. Through the use of these variable sized hair grafts along with new and improved instrumentation, the accomplished hair transplantation surgeons can create a natural hair appearance that is appropriate for each individual patient. Single hair-grafts have the finest and softest appearance. Although they do not provide much density, they do provide the critical soft hairline that is the transition to thicker hair. Reconstructing a new hairline is a skill requiring surgical as well as artistic skill. Continue reading Techniques of hair transplantation today
