Important Note for Natural Hair Transplant Applicants
Due to the very high sensitivity of natural hair transplants and the issues and problems that may arise later, it is recommended that this be done by a dermatologist because the dermatologist has the necessary scientific and practical competencies to perform natural hair transplants.
Due to the fact that the results of natural hair transplants are irreversible and their repair is very difficult, the applicants are advised to be extremely careful and obsessive in choosing their doctor so that they later have no problem in this regard.
Given that some people claim to be hair transplant specialists and often have acquired this specialization from foreign countries, especially Canada and the United States, it should be noted that there is no foreign university called “Hair Transplant Specialty”. The fact is that there is only one university field called skin and hair diseases that specialists in this field can practice natural hair transplantation in their field of specialization.
Due to the many advertisements for natural hair transplants in the press, television, and especially satellite channels, and the fact that many of these advertisements are extremely tempting and deceptive, it is requested that you be completely sure of your doctor’s expertise and experience before doing the work. This is because there is no way back later.
Put aside any embarrassment as this is important and vital field and remember that choosing a doctor and researching his competence and expertise is your natural and legal right.
A person’s expectations regarding hair transplantation should be realistic and tailored to his or her circumstances. The most natural result of hair transplantation is obtained by micrografting technique, ie after a period of 6-9 months, no one notices the hair transplantation in the person and the place of hair transplantation looks completely natural, but due to the inherent limitations, there are hair transplant techniques. You can never create a density completely similar to natural hair.
Often patients, under the influence of false media advertisements that you get a certain amount of hair for every thousand hairs or 15,000 hairs in one session, ask the doctor how many hairs do you plant for me? Or they request to plant a large number of taro. The fact is that the result of hair transplantation depends not only on the number of hair transplants, but also on the type of hair arrangement, and it can even be said that the second factor is far more important than the first.
For example, if for one person 3,000 hairs are planted with 1000 grafts of three hairs and for another 3000 hairs with 1,500 grafts of one hairs and 750 grafts of two hairs are planted, the result of planting in the second person will be much better and more beautiful, if the number of hairs planted in both are the same.
Sometimes a large number of hairs may be implanted for a person, but the principle of irregularity and the angle of entry of the grafts into the skin is not observed in hair transplantation. In this case, although the number of hair transplants is sufficient, the result of hair transplantation will not be satisfied by the patient due to non-observance of beauty principles.
The best person for a natural hair transplant is someone who has thick hair in the hair donor area with sufficient density and his baldness is noticeable but limited (small). If the patient’s previous hair density is high in the recipient area, he may not notice a further increase in the number of hairs after hair transplantation and may not be satisfied enough.
Hair transplantation is permanent and especially in the case of the hairline on the front of the head, the patient must be fully justified and fully satisfied. Otherwise, there will be problems in the future. Before hair transplantation, this line should be precisely defined and because this line remains for the rest of the patient’s life, so it should be designed with extreme care.
The design of this line has a number of calculations that are very important to observe to get a good and natural result. In general, the most important part of the hair in terms of facial aesthetics is the hairline in front of the head.
This line is the first part of the face that appears in front of the viewer’s eyes and can be a symbol of his age, beauty, youth and good looks. This line forms the face frame, so the reconstruction of the above line as natural as possible and appropriate to the patient’s age and considering his future, is the most important part of natural hair transplantation and should spend a lot of time and energy for it.
The hairline on the front of the head is actually a strip a few millimeters wide, which naturally has several characteristics:
- The general shape of this line is similar to the letter M, which means that it has some indentation on both sides and is inclined forward in the middle.
- This line has an irregular and zigzag view in each part, ie it is not a straight line and one hand.
- The hairs of this band are in the form of thin, single-haired follicles.
- The angle of hair exit from the skin is 30 degrees forward everywhere in this strip, but in the side parts, while maintaining this angle, the hair is also inclined to the sides.
- In each part of this strip, all hairs have an angle and are in the same direction. All of these should be considered in hair transplants in this sensitive area
Limitations of hair transplantation
Natural hair transplantation, like all human handiwork, has a number of potential limitations. These restrictions are of two types:
- Hair bank: The number of hairs that can be removed from the hair donor area is clear that the smaller and more limited the hair donor area in a person, the less the number of hairs and as a result, the hair transplant will be weaker.
- Quality of hair that can be removed from the hair donor area: The thinner the hair and the lighter its color, the less coverage it has compared to thick and black hair and the less density they create. In addition, curly hair creates more coverage than straight hair.
- The area of the bald area: It is clear that with increasing the area of the bald area (and because the number of hairs removed is limited) the amount of density of implanted hair (ie the number of hairs per square centimeter) also decreases.
B) Limitations that currently exist with regard to the natural hair transplant technique
Misconceptions about natural hair transplants and their consequences: When a person applies for natural hair transplants, he has a series of misconceptions about natural hair transplants and their consequences that are usually far removed from reality. With proper examination and consultation, the person’s mind becomes clear and realizes the facts of hair transplantation.
Some of the most common misconceptions about natural hair transplants
Can hair that has become a little thinner be thickened by hair transplantation?
In hair transplantation, a graft is inserted into the skin by creating a very fine slit. This hole, although very thin, takes up space anyway. If the area where we want to do the hair transplant is completely bald, there will be no problem. But if we want to do hair transplants side by side with existing hair (especially if these hairs are thick and of good quality), it is necessary that there is enough space side by side with the hair to create that gap.
As long as more than 50% of the hair density is not reduced, due to insufficient space between the existing hairs, it is not possible to create a gap between them, and if we do it by force, first it may be at the root. The surrounding hair is damaged, and secondly, even if the roots of the surrounding hair are not damaged, these roots will interfere with the root of the implanted hair.
Therefore, when the implanted hair comes out, hair cysts and bad pus will most likely occur. These lesions interfere with the protrusion of the implanted hair and ruin the results of the hair transplant.
With natural hair transplantation, can a density similar to the density of completely natural hair be created?
In natural hair transplants, very fine incisions are made to place the grafts in the bald area. If these gaps are too close to each other, the skin between them will be torn and the two small gaps will become a large gap, which is not desirable. Therefore, we have to observe a minimum distance. The distance is about 2-3 times the distance between hairs with normal density and therefore the density of hair implanted in the first session is always less than the density of normal hair.
In the next sessions, this distance can be reduced and reduced. (Of course, due to the limited number of hairs that can be removed from the back of the head) In any case, in terms of distance between hairs, it will never be like natural hair, and of course, density will not be quite similar to natural hair. The density that can normally be created in the first session of hair transplantation is 20-35 grafts per square centimeter, which can be increased to 40-50 in subsequent sessions.
Can a bald person have a hair transplant for as many sessions as he wants?
Natural hair transplants have a number of limitations, one of the most important of which is the limited number of hair transplant sessions per person. The reason for this limitation is that the number of hairs that can be removed from the hair donor (hair bank) is not more than a certain limit (about 10-12 thousand hairs).
As a general principle, it is possible to remove hair from the hair donor area only to the extent that no damage is done to the hair removal area, the skin can withstand the hair removal, and at the same time, its appearance is not deformed and deformed. Therefore, the number of hairs that can be removed is limited and not all of these hairs can be removed.
In the FUT method, usually 3-4 thousand hairs cannot be harvested in one session more, and in the FIT method, depending on the characteristics of the individual’s skin and hair, this number reaches 5-6 thousand hairs in one session.
