Does a Hair Transplant Look Natural?

Thursday, January 24, 2008

The days of old hair transplant "plugs" and "corn rows" are long gone and over. Those hair transplant surgeons who are performing state of the art ultra refined follicular unit hair restoration surgery are producing very natural looking results. Be aware however, that not all hair replacement surgeons are not equal in their ability to perform hair transplant surgery. Unfortunately, some physicians still use outdated techniques because they have not yet risen to the challenge of providing state of the art hair transplant patient results. This is a huge issue of which all potential hair restoration patients should be aware. Therefore, it is vital to research thoroughly all hair transplant surgeons you are considering. I encourage you to use our online resources as a tool for research which includes, the Hair Transplant Network, the Hair Loss Learning Center, and the Hair Loss Q&A Blog. Be sure to research adn ask questions on our open hair restoration forum community.

How many hairs can be transplanted with Follicular Unit Excision (formerly Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplantation?

Friday, January 4, 2008

The amount of available donor hair via follicular unit hair transplantation (FUT / Strip Surgery) is dependent both on the hair loss patient's donor hair density and scalp elasticity. The amount of available donor hair via follicular unit extraction (FUE) / follicular isolation technique (FIT) is dependent on solely on the balding patient's donor hair density. On the average, one should have approximately as much donor hair available for either hair transplant procedure. In other words, if a strip patient has approximately 6000 follicular unit grafts available for transplanting, the number will most likely be close for follicular unit extraction (FUE). For those with extremely poor scalp elasticity, they may have more available donor hair via FUE.

Does Propecia and Rogaine Work Only For Hair Loss in the Crown?

Thursday, December 6, 2007

The whole issue of Propecia (finasteride) or Rogaine (minoxodil) only working in the crown/vertex region of the scalp is totally false. The reason the two companies have to say that in their advertizing is that the clinical studies they conducted on these hair loss drugs were done in those areas, and, because of the strict rules of the FDA, one can only say a drug works in the area in which you studied it.
