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?
I want to undergo hair transplantation surgery. Unfortunately, the donor area in the back of my head is weak and the baldness area in my head is large where I have the baldness stage of NW7. Therefore, extraction of grafts from my chest is a must. Therefore, I have been informed by the most hair transplantation clinics and advisory websites that covering the whole of my head is not possible, especially in one session. In the first session, which may also be the only session for me, it will be only possible to cover my hairline and the frontal area of my head, so that the crown and the back of my head will continue to be empty. Some clinics have informed me that it may be possible to cover my crown in another session one year later by extracting grafts from my chest. Few Clinics are ready to cover all of my head by extracting grafts from the back of my head and my chest. I am really mystified whether to cover the frontal half of my head in the first surgery, which may be the only transplantation surgery for me or to cover the whole of my head in one surgery in a clinic ready to do so for me. If only the frontal half of my head will be covered on one session because it is reportedly and medically the typical solution for me, will it be acceptable for my appearance to be with a half-covered head and a bald spot in my head crown? Of course, it will be optimal for my personal photos and my video chatting to be with only a frontal coverage for my head. However, in real life and for youtubing, I am not sure if it will be optimal or not. How will my hair look like? How will I style my hair? Will I be obligated to a specified hairstyle? Will I have to lengthen my hair or shorten it? Will my head appearance (face and hair) be acceptable without any criticism or mockery? Will it be a distraction for the eye that looks at me to stare at my bald spot in the back of my head other than looking at my face and my frontal hair?
Hi All, I'm new to the forum after researching hair loss solutions for the last 5 or so years. I'm currently attending/booking/submitting some assessments with the doctors as I'd like to go ahead with surgery. One of my concerns is the resulting quality of the transplanted hair, and being able to style it the way I'd like. Alot of before and after pictures are impressive in many ways, but I don't often see guys with similar hair styles that I'd like to achieve. (Which is styled medium legnth and up at the front in a quiff). Alot of the pictures I see are guys who wear it short, or down at the front. I wanted to ask those who have had a HT whether it's difficult to style and manage the new hair, and whether longer hair styles are possible? It seems alot of it is to do with doner hair, and what's already in place on top. I'd say I'm around N3 (Receded hairline, particularly the temples, some thinning in mid scalp). The donor hair area is managable hair, fairly thick and straight. Also regarding hairlines, it seems a lot of the best looking results are built around existing hairlines, which is a concern as I'd like mine slightly lower than where it is now. I have so far been assessed by a nurse in a Harley street clinic as having a reasonable donor area density (although not great), and needing around 5000 hairs to the front & mid scalp (Achieving good density). The hair line she outined was conservative and was pretty much where my hairline is now, and ideally I'd like it 5-6mm lower down. In my opinion it would still be reasonably high and age appropriate for the future. Does anyone have experience in this situation? Is achieving slighlty lower hairline possible!? I'm waiting on some assements from Dr Reddy, Dr Bisanga, Dr Lorenzo, Dr Zioga so I shall soon have more of an idea of what is possible. Any advice would be much appreciated. I guess I'm trying to set expectations and figure out what the outcomes are most likley to be like! Cheers Bobbat68
Hey ALL.. I wanted to ask the board's opinion on a matter I discussed when sending an e-mail to the office I plan to have my transplant and ask their thoughts. I have attached it below and wanted to see what your input was. (I ADDED PICS OF MYSELF WITH THE FACE CUT OFF TO TELL YOU WHAT I DO WITH I USED TO DO WITH MY HAIR, STYLE-WISE, BEFORE IT FELL OUT EVEN MORE) ----------------------------E-MAIL---------------------------------------------- I didn’t want to swamp Dr. ------ with questions upon my arrival on the day of surgery, so I thought it would be best to ask now to have a solid idea out of what I want/expect from my particular transplant: 1)I wanted his (or your) opinion on adding hair to an area that currently has no hair (as opposed to making the current areas with hair fuller). For instance, for those who would like a lower hairline (many African-American patients and many 2x clients) have chosen to have hair placed further down on their forehead where there is currently no hair. As much as I would like to do this, is there anything to consider that I would be giving up in the process (ie. Hair density, fullness, etc). As much as I would like a lower hairline, I want to ensure setting myself up for the best results possible and if placing too many grafts on an area where there isn’t any hair there at all currently isn’t conducive to that, I can prepare prior to my transplant date. 2)I aspire to brush my hair forward after transplant to add length to my hairline currently, giving the appearance of a hairline that is lower. I currently do this with my hair now, and have been doing this every since my hair begin to thin out. (This is similar to what the scarred patient Rahim has done with brushing his hair forward, which I like). My question is, with my grade of hair being a little bit thicker, would this brushed forward effect be more effective in a situation where my hair was less dense? For instance, like dominoes (like hair follicles), if they are too close too each other, they will not lay flat, as opposed to if they are a little spaced out, allowing for them to lay flat (which is my desired look). Especially with sometimes transplanted hair becoming a little less manageable (kinkier, thicker, curlier) than the finer hair that is currently on the patients head (which is usually thinner). Your thoughts? ---------------------------------E-MAIL END------------------------------------------- ****Add'l Notes I added pictures below to explain what I meant by the "Domino Effect". I never really understand why guys who still didn't have the hairline they wanted (not low enough) didn't just grow their hair longer and brush it forward over their hairline, just like the scar victim did in the pic below. Unless they (1) wanted to brush their hair back for style purposes or to show off their hairline or (2) their hair was SO dense that they physical couldnt brush it forward like they could before their surgery (when their hair was finer, softer, and less coarse). Any answers? The Caucasian individual in the photo is what I mean about a hair being "more coarse". The advantage that the burn victim had, which I found out from asking the office that did the transplant was, he actually wasn't able to cover enough of his head with grafts because of limited bloody supply to certain areas of his head (which is why they actually had to give him less density than they wanted to), but doesnt it look better to you guys?? His transplant is arguably the best one I have EVER seen, and that is what I want them to do for me. But is it almost ridiculous to ask for less density to be able to give that same hairstyle effect? I would be happy with my hair like that, even though I'm African American and might have hair that might be a little more coarse. Your THOUGHTS?? (I ADDED PICS OF MYSELF WITH THE FACE CUT OFF TO TELL YOU WHAT I DO WITH I USED TO DO WITH MY HAIR, STYLE-WISE, BEFORE IT FELL OUT EVEN MORE) And I don't know if it seems like I am overthinking every aspect of the surgery but I am extremely serious about getting what I want out of the surgery. I know you can't dictate exactly how your transplant will come out, but I have seen some that are mind-boggling (as in ones where I would be extremely dissatisfied). I worked hard for the money for the transplant and it is ME who has to walk around with a potential botched hair transplant for the rest of my life so yes, I feel the need to be a little thorough with my questions/detail. Anybody who is like me and feels similar about overasking/inquiring prior to their surgery to ensure their best result is accomplished, feel free to reply with help. Thanks guys
