Customized Design in Hair Transplantation
The target to be achieved in patients to have hair transplant is thick and natural hair. Customization is made in line with the needs and demands of people depending on the age, type of hair, health status and amount of hair loss.
AGE OF THE PATIENT
It is very important at what age a hair transplantation operation should be performed. The most ideal age to start it would be 30ish because hair transplantation at early ages might be the beginning of a long and expensive journey since your original hair may keep falling off. People at 20-24 suffer hair loss with a regressive hairline and thinning of the hair at temporal sides. If the patient at these ages does not want to wait, fewer grafts can be used and thinner transplants can be made. If the patient wants to completely regain the former hairline and density of hair, thousands of grafts, tens of sessions and high amounts of money are needed to get this result on top of the grafts that may keep falling off as the patient ages.
The style and the shape of the hair is crucial when it comes to a hair transplant procedure. Hair transplantation is made considering the color, form and thickness of the hair harvested from the donor area. For instance, while curly hair grows above the ears, the frontal part of hair can be wavy. The surgeon to perform the operation should ensure the natural look by adding the appropriate hair to the appropriate area.
Before even considering performing a hair transplant operation, first thing to do is to ask our patients about their medical conditions. People having chronic diseases such as heart, veins, kidneys, clotting disorder, hemophilia and those having a dermatological disease in the recipient area may not be suitable for hair transplantation. Before making a decision, you should seek medical advice. If the person does not have the said diseases and does not smoke or drink alcohol, then the success ratio of the hair transplantation will be higher.
AMOUNT OF HAIR LOSS
Since it is essential to have a natural look, the amount of hair to be transplanted is set according to the patient. The thinness of hair is important because the hair to be transplanted is extracted from the head of the patient. The number of grafts needed for restoring the baldness of the recipient area and ensuring a natural look are calculated by the computer. As a result of this calculation, if there are not sufficient donor areas at the back of the neck, the hair extracted from the remaining parts of the body can also be used.
