How hair transplant methods work?

Hair Transplant Procedure is More Accessible and Desirable Than Ever

You have a limited number of hairs on your head. A hair transplant surgery in New York will essentially relocate your hairs from one place to another to cover thin or bald areas. It’s reasonable to wonder if you’ll wind up with noticeably thinner hair all over after your procedure. We’ll explain how the various transplant methods work and what you can expect from results.

How do hair transplants in New York work?

There are two primary methods used today for surgical hair restoration. FUT stands for follicular unit transplant. Also called the strip method, it’s performed by taking a thin strip of scalp from the back of the hair and dissecting it into individual hair grafts. Though it does result in a linear scar, it can be an effective way to gather a high number of hair grafts in one session. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) uses a small punch tool to extract individual hair grafts. For either method, hair grafts are implanted into tiny slits created in the recipient sites. The angle, density and direction of hairs is carefully planned for realistic and even results.

Why doesn’t hair appear thinner after a transplant?

You’ll technically have about the same amount of hair after your procedure. The hair that grows densely, close together at the back and sides will be thinned out slightly to create grafts. However, when this is done skillfully, the extraction sites won’t be visible, and the area will still appear full and normal. The hairs which are implanted will be spread as uniformly as possible. It won’t be realistic to expect the thick, full hair that you had as a teenager, but good coverage can usually be achieved.

Is the process more difficult for women?

It can be. One of the reasons is the pattern of progressive baldness that men experience isn’t the same in women. Females suffer with androgenic alopecia too, but their pattern of shedding tends to be diffused all over the head. When the hair is thin everywhere and there’s no DHT resistant, dense areas left, extracting grafts for transplant requires widespread harvesting and great care not to deplete any donor area. The process can take longer, and it may not be possible to extract as many grafts.

Hair restoration isn’t just about thicker hair

If the average healthy follicle density for a square inch of scalp is roughly 200 hairs, you can expect to achieve roughly half of that through a hair transplant in New York. The illusion of fullness and even coverage are part of the result. Strategic placement of hairlines and maximizing each and every graft is critical. That’s why you should only select an experienced, reputable hair transplant surgeon to restore your hair. Each precious graft counts and a skilled surgeon is like an artist- knowing just where to place each one for maximum effect.
