Everybody wants thick and healthy hair, right? But, what if there is hair loss, coupled with the thinning of the hair remaining?
It would be disastrous.
There is one key term here which needs to be understood and kept in mind – hair density – which is very important in the procedure for hair transplantation if one needs to cure or treat hair loss.
What is Hair density?
Hair density is the ratio of follicular units on the head per square centimetre. Hair density can vary for different people from different countries, belonging to different races as well. People from Africa have the lowest hair density while Caucasians have the highest hair density.
Why is hair density important for hair transplantation?
There are two main things to keep in mind while getting a hair transplantation done to cure hair loss. One is the surgeon who should be skilled and knowledgeable and from a well known hair transplantation clinic. The other is hair density.
Hence it is of utmost importance to keep hair density in mind to place the follicle units together so that the natural pattern of the hair is retained. Also the direction of the placed hair follicle and patterned placement based on individual combing has equal importance. So when you are getting a hair transplant done please enquire of the design and the directions and angulations of the hair that will be placed. In wrong hands hair transplant would become a disaster.
One more important thing you need to understand is the hair fall pattern that you are currently undergoing. We all know that baldness is a genetic character that will be transmitted from one generation to another, so when you are planning for a hair transplant at a younger age i.e; before complete baldness is evident, keep in mind that your natural hair which are programmed to fall will fall out. so if a density improvement is done for a younger patient with reasonable thinning, his result may look excellent for the next few years but one has to understand that as the character has not yet settled and some of those natural hair will fall out in the future the result is going to appear a little bit thin as only the transplanted hair will remain. so in such cases you may have to go for another session of HT in the future. Failing to understand this concept will result in misunderstanding between doctor and patient, as the latter feels he was not treated properly or the the done HT was a failure.
To explore the hair density of your hair, visiting a hair transplant clinic is important as trichologists can mould the hair transplantation procedure in such a way and use the tools to increase the survival rate of the follicles which in turn makes the hair transplantation last forever.
