Hair restoration guide to hair transplant from Dallas Fort Worth Texas hair loss specialists: Medical progress in treating male hair loss has advanced in the past couple of years. Today many men and women can achieve hair fullness using new surgical hair restoration methods, where very small patches of skin with hair are moved from one part of the head to another. The new technology of using very small grafts enabled men & women to have surgical hair transplants as cosmetic procedure alternative.
What hair will be used for the hair transplant surgery?
In most men, with “male pattern hair loss”, hair all around the side and back of the scalp is more dense. For this reason, donor area for use as hair graft in a man's hair transplantation is generally available. The hair in the back of the scalp is most commonly used as the “donor hair” for the hair transplantation.
In most women, with “female pattern hair loss”, hair all around the scalp is thin. For this reason, donor area for use as hair graft in a woman's hair transplantation is generally smaller than is available on the head of a typical balding man.
Women's hair in the back of the scalp is more dense in most cases. This means that this hair on the back of the scalp will continue to grow well over the years, regardless of whether it is transplanted to the top or other thinning areas.
The hair in the back of the scalp is most commonly used as the “donor hair” for a woman undergoing hair transplantation. The cosmetic operation can recreate your hair pattern but the new hair pattern is not exactly the same as your hair was before it became thin.
