FUE in New Jersey : Zones of The Scalp And Why They Are Important

Getting a detailed assessment for your hair loss

FUE in New Jersey – Treatment Isn’t One Size Fits All

You might have noticed that hereditary baldness for men tends to follow familiar patterns. It’s a common misconception that male pattern baldness affects everyone the same way, but there are different scalp regions, pattern, and progression to understand and watch for. When you plan FUE in New Jersey, your first step will be meeting with a hair restoration expert in person to get a detailed assessment and plan for your unique hair loss.

It matters where you’ve lost your hair and where you still have it. Humans can have about 100,000 follicles on their head, but only a fraction will be available for transplantation. That’s because of the hormone DHT that contributes to genetic, androgenic alopecia. This permanent and progressive balding which affects men and women will be most notable where hair follicles succumb to the influence of DHT.

For most men, the hair at the back ( Occiput) and sides of their head are the most naturally resistant to hormones. They tend to stay put and will show little sign of thinning, even after the crown and hairline have lost considerable density. The resilience and strength these follicles carry with them is called donor dominance, and explains why they stay put once implanted.

3 Scalp Zones You Need To Know About

The three primary regions you’ll hear mentioned are the forelock, mid-scalp and crown. For many women who suffer from genetic balding, their thinning will be somewhat diffused and show evenly throughout the head. However, men out-represent women at hair loss clinics by far, and their patterns are more zone-specific. Male forelock, mid-scalp and crown are both prone to hair loss and more visible due to location. The forelock and hairline can be synonymous and represent the front and temporal regions of the hairline.

The mid-scalp refers to the middle of the top, reaching down to the sides. Hair thinning is typical here, but it often doesn’t go bald first. Crown/Vertex is often trickier for a patient to see because it is at the top of the head but slightly rear. This is the location for the classic “bald spot” to form.

Why Do Your Scalp Zones Matter?

Through careful analysis of your hair and questioning, your specialist can help determine your stage/rate of hair loss and predict where it will be in the future. It’s essential to plan a restoration procedure that doesn’t merely fill in hair but considers the long-term changes and adjustments you’ll experience.

The forelock is often the highest priority for our patients. Due to its very visible location and the way a hairline frames the face, the temptation is to focus all efforts at restoring youthful density there. While implanted hairs are DHT resistant, the native hairs could continue to diminish. Concentrating filling efforts too densely at the forelock at a young age will ensure a patient has to repeat with follow up surgery not too far in the future.

For those who have minimal remaining viable donor hairs, carefully selecting the most strategic places to put them is an art form. Hair transplant surgery is a matter of redistribution. You’ll have a limited about of hairs to redistribute and count on the expertise of your surgeon to place them where they’ll have the most dramatic effect.
