Many hair transplant patients are looking to focus on their hairline and crown area for their procedures. Restoring the crown is one of the more complicated hair transplant procedures and requires extensive grafts and expert precision.
Hair loss in the crown area can be experienced by both men and women, but is most common in men with male pattern baldness. Crown hair loss can be caused by different forms of alopecia, anagen hair loss, inflammatory scalp, tinea capitis, trichotillomania and many others. Not all forms of hair loss can be treated surgically, so it’s important to have a consultation to decide on the best treatment for your specific concerns.
FUE (follicular unit extraction) is one of the best methods for tackling hair loss in the crown area. The robot-assisted hair transplant procedure is the most advanced and modern hair transplant procedure in the world. You can learn more about the FUE procedure by visiting the FUE section of our site.
After your surgical procedure, you should be able to resume your normal activities within 24 hours, but avoid anything strenuous to reduce the risk of injury. You can expect to see some small scabbing following the surgery as well. Your surgeon may recommend hair loss medications following surgery to ensure the best results.
The cost of crown hair transplants varies widely, based primarily on the cost of covering hair loss and hair density, which is necessary for natural results. Since the crown area requires expert precision, there are fewer doctors experienced in this form of hair restoration, which can increase the overall cost of the procedure.
