    Toppik after a transplant

    Is Toppik available in Turkey?
  2. What is the least hair density to cover the scars with a hair length of 1-2 cm? 40-50 hairs/cm2, 30-40 hairs/cm2 or 20-30 hairs/cm2?
  3. Will the scars appear even if the punch size is 0.75-0.85mm rather than 1.0mm?
  4. I will undergo hair transplantation operation using the technique of FUE. Because I have the last pattern of baldness, NW7, only the frontline of my head, zone A, and zone B will be both transplanted with a density of 40-50 hairs/cm2 by grafts taken from the back of my head. I have been recommended not to perform both FUE and BHT at one operation. Therefore, the second operation applying BHT to cover my crown, zone D, with a hair taken from my chest will be performed one year later or may not be performed at all. My question if I shave my hair after the transplantation, will any scars appear? I used to follow a hairstyle shaving my hair at the sides and the back of my head to zero and growing my hair at the top. Because my hair at the top is very thin, it used to appear homogeneous with the shaved hairs at the sides. After I undergo the transplantation, I may sometimes continue to shave my hairs at the sides to zero and grow my hairs at the top to 1-2 cm. I may not be tied to prolong my hairs all the time. If I cut my hair to just 1-2cm long after the transplantation, will any scars appear as a result of the operation? If I shave my hairs at the sides and the back-bottom of my head (where the grafts are taken from) to zero, will any scars appear as a result of extraction of grafts?
  5. Will I inevitably need a second surgery to address my crown? My question is if my appearance will look permanently natural after this surgery as my crown will be excluded. What's your opinion?
  6. Dear Shera, Yes, you are right. I have received an offer from a clinic in Turkey that they will extract 2000 grafts from the back of my head and 1500 grafts from my chest and do the transplantation with a density of 40-50 hairs/cm2 in the front decreasing gradually backwards. How much does it look an efficient solution for me? Regards
  7. I just need an opinion about my case in general. I talked about emulating pattern of SW3 stage and it is a general topic. If any specialist wants to discuss my case in special, I will post my photos to her/his inbox directly.
  8. I haven't drawn this diagram myself. I downloaded it from the website, http://www.injertocapilar.com/English/density.htm, and uploaded it here for an illustrative purpose.
  9. I am looking to undergo hair transplantation. I have the last stage of baldness, the stage of NW7. Unfortunately, the donor area in the back of my head is weak so that extraction of grafts from my chest is a must. Therefore, I may not get full coverage for my head in the first session of transplantation. I will probably get a half coverage for the frontal half of my head similar to the pattern of baldness stage of NW3. I may undergo a second session to cover my crown of the head one year later or I may not take it at all. I want the result of my hair transplantation to look like a natural pattern of NW3 stage of baldness. I don't want the appearance of my hair after the surgery to seem transplanted and to be a mockery or a reason for criticism. I suggest that the hair is transplanted in the zones of the head in the attached figure in the following order so look like a natural pattern: Zone (A) Transplanted with a density of 40-50 hairs/cm2 Zone (B): Transplanted with a density of 30-40 hairs/cm2 Zone (C): Transplanted with a density of 20-30 hairs/cm2 Zone (D): Not Transplanted I appeal you please if you have any further suggestions or recommendations for my transplantation so that my hair will look natural and have a long-term acceptable appearance.
  10. I am looking to undergo hair transplantation. I have the last stage of baldness, the stage of NW7. Unfortunately, the donor area in the back of my head is weak so that extraction of grafts from my chest is a must. Therefore, I may not get full coverage for my head in the first session of transplantation. I will probably get a half coverage for the frontal half of my head similar to the pattern of baldness stage of NW3. I may undergo a second session to cover my crown of the head one year later or I may not take it at all. If I undergo the second session, the whorl of the crown of my head has to be designed by the surgeon. Where the crown usually contains a very large amount of hairs, more than 50% of the whole hairs in the head, it is a hard task to design and cover it properly with an available amount of grafts extracted from the chest, no more than 1500 grafts in my case. My question is about the role of hair transplant simulation software in designing the hair distribution in general and the crown whorl in special. How far does hair transplant simulator help the surgeon to transplant the frontal half of head to mimic the pattern of NW3 stage of baldness to look like a natural pattern so that further sessions may be performed? How far does that simulator help the surgeon to design the crown whorl later to look natural with the available grafts with a possibility to intensify its density later in a subsequent session? Should I agree with the surgeon to use a hair simulator to design the hair distribution of my hair and to design my crown later by using the 3D scan of my head based on the available amount of grafts? Or, otherwise, should I depend on the experience and skills of the surgeon to design my crown hair distribution manually without using a hair transplant simulator? How perfect is using a hair transplant simulator to design hair distribution based on 3D scanning and available grafts to mimic the natural appearance? As usual, the hair transplant simulator is a tool for the surgeon to design the hair distribution, to calculate the required amount of grafts and to conclude the hair appearance based on 3D scanning and available amount of grafts and, additionally, to show the patient the expected appearance of hairs after transplantation and to upload the robot, if used, with the target distribution of hairs to transplant it automatically. Anyway, do there exist add-ons for hair transplant simulators to auto-design the distribution based on 3D scanning and the available amount of grafts to mimic a natural appearance especially when the baldness area is large and the available amount of grafts is limited so that the team will perform the transplantation manually? If yes, what are the best hair transplant simulator/s that you advise to be used and what are these add-ons for this/these simulators?
  11. I don't think the concealer is a solution. If I look like the pattern of stage 3 of baldness after the transplantation, I will look natural. The most important thing is that my hairline will realize its aim not to distract the eye looking at me to something abnormal in my head.
  12. Surely because my forehead is wide so that it will look wider even with stage 3. The purpose of the hairline is motivating the eye to stare at the face rather than distracting above to the bald head. The most important aim for me is to realize this purpose with the designed hairline by the surgeon.
