Important Part Of Your Scalp Anatomy
New Jersey Hair Transplant
L is the loose areolar connective tissue that provides a layer of separation between the upper three layers of the scalp and the pericranium. It is this layer that also provides an area of entry for craniofacial surgery or neurosurgery. In part of that, the loose areola connective tissue can sometimes be referred to as the “danger zone” because infections can occur throughout this layer, onto emissary veins and spread into the cranium. With proper surgical sterility though, the risk of infection can be minimized.
The loose areolar connective tissue is composed of bundles of collagen type 1 and collagen type 3. It is also rich in glycosaminoglycans, which is predominantly found in its matrix form. This layer also allows for the superficial layers of the scalp to be mobile relative to the pericranium.
P represents the pericranium, which is the fifth and last layer of the scalp. It is a dense layer of connective tissue that lies over the skull and is heavily vascularized. It provides the bones of your skull with nutrients and the capacity for cellular repair.
In addition to the scalp, hair follicles are an important part of your scalp anatomy and especially crucial for a New Jersey hair transplant. As mentioned, the layer of skin on the scalp is where the hair follicles reside and extend into the subcutaneous connective tissue layer. When an individual experiences hair loss in a particular area of the scalp, there is also thinning of the skin and connective tissue layers.
