Hair loss affects both men and women and is said to impact 1 in 5 Americans. Over time we have developed ways to combat it, with the most effective being hair transplant surgery. Hair transplants are practiced by people all over the world and is one of the most common forms of cosmetic surgery for men.
A well-performed hair transplant will cause a lifelong change in the hairline and hair density of a patient and can make them feel more confident and happier with their overall appearance. The results of successful hair implantation are permanent, as the transplanted hair follicles will continue to grow for the lifetime of the patient.
The aesthetic appearance of a hair transplant depends on many different factors, such as the type of transplant, the form of hair loss, and the number of hair follicles. A wide range of different aesthetic designs are available for hair implantation and transplantation process to suit the varying needs of patients.
The ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration System is one of the newer tools for performing hair transplants. This form of hair restoration reduces the time and cost of assisting the surgeon in hair restoration, while providing precision, control, and reproducibility. ARTAS allows for no linear scarring or stitches, which creates a more natural looking result.
During a hair consultation, it is important for the surgeon to understand what the patient wants to achieve with the Hair Transplant Design & Aesthetics
Men who choose to have a hair transplant understand the need to be realistic and reasonable and give themselves the best chance of achieving the desired results. It is also necessary for the transplant surgeon to calculate the number of hairs that need to be devoted to the central scalp and hairline, which can also influence the possible shape of the hairline.
Most people have between 5,000-7,500 grafts that can be transplanted. In contrast to the strip method, the FUE hair transplant procedure requires that the hair from the donor area is cut very short. The hairs in the donor area are hidden in an area that grows in the back of the head and is bordered by the front and sides of a thin strip of skin on the left and right and cut off at the very front.
