Can A Hair Transplant Produce Natural Density?

7/6/2018 4:23:21 PM

We have all seen the pluggy "barbie doll" and "corn row" hair transplants of the past.  But today, most hair transplants go unnoticed because of state of the art surgical techniques employed by world renowned hair transplant surgeons around the world. In this article, we will discuss how density is achieved through hair transplantation and how it grows as natural as the hair one was born with.

Natural Density: The 90's saw a gradual introduction of a very refined surgical technique now known as Follicular Unit Transplantation otherwise known as "FUT". This ultra refined procedure transplants hairs in their naturally occuring one, two, three, and four hair "follicular unit groupings" in which they grow naturally. This surgical procedure enables surgeons to safely make more tiny graft incisions in a given area than ever before.

Hair transplant surgeons are now able to "dense pack" balding areas with as many as 40 to 60 follicular units per square centimeter and even more when appropriate for the patient. This high density of transplanted hair typically produces the appearance of fullness and patients generally do not experience any visibile skin distortions or scarring due to the tiny size of these incisions. Furthermore, these high density procedures that qualified hair transplant surgeons carry out today can restore the appearance of fullness without any obvious signs of surgery in the donor and receipient zones alike.

Conclusion

This ultra refined procedure is difficult to perform at the highest quality level  and only a select few of all hair restoration surgeons perform it with consistent succesful outcomes. It is important to select a surgeon with a track record of producing high quality results that are ultra refined and undetectable to the general public. Consult with a pre-screened qualifed hair restoration surgeon and discuss your surgical and non-surgical options today.
