Hair Camouflage And Strategic Ways Of A Hair Transplant Surgery-97179

Hair-Loss Hair Transplant surgeries have evolved from traditional strip harvesting wherein the head looked like a patch of hair has been glued to the area and it was obvious and artificial that the patient would soon consider baldness to it. That has changed to a whole new option with follicular graft dissection techniques wherein fine hair can be transplanted which is hard to distinguish from natural hair. The transplanted hair grows normally as it should be and sometimes peers of the patient could not even notice when the hair has emerged. Corrective Hair Transplant surgeries are even a more satisfactory service when it .es to correcting old transplants which are referred as pluggy transplants. There are some intelligent strategies which cover the old transplants and surfaces to a more lustrous natural looking hairline and density. Surgical Hair Camouflage covers up unsightly grafts with more natural looking ones, is the most basic of the hair transplant repair techniques. It can be used alone, or in conjunction with other methods of repair such as graft excision. It can be used as a stand-alone technique if the grafts to be camouflaged are centrally located (i.e. not too close to the hairline), are not too large, and have hair pointing in the proper (forward) direction. If grafts need to be excised, it is best to perform camouflage as the final step, i.e. after all the problem grafts from the bad hair transplant have been removed and the hair from those grafts redistributed. Although most grafts that need to be camouflaged were made using the old plug technique, almost all grafts that are larger than naturally occurring follicular units (of 1-4 hairs) will need to be camouflaged to achieve the most natural hair restoration results. Besides plugs, grafts that cause cosmetic problems include punch-grafts, slit grafts, and minigrafts. It is important to realize, however, that even very small grafts, if placed in the wrong location or at improper angles will look unnatural and must be corrected. It is important to note that camouflage alone can rarely correct grafts that are in the wrong location or pointing in the wrong direction. These grafts must invariably be removed. In the past, camouflage had been performed using either small minigrafts or micro-grafts. With the development of FUE and FUT all camouflage should now be performed using only naturally occurring individual follicular units to achieve the best cosmetic results. When using follicular units for camouflage, single-hair units are placed at the front of the hairline, followed by 2- and, if appropriate, 3-hair units behind them. The 2- and 3-hair follicular units are placed both immediately in front of the larger grafts and between them to fill in any gaps that were created with the old technique. The extent of the correction will depend, to a large part, on the availability of adequate donor hair reserves. Camouflage can be useful by itself if the abnormal grafts are far enough away from the hairline that a zone of follicular units can be placed in front of them (to mask their appearance) without having to bring the new hairline too far forward. In general, the larger the grafts, the deeper the zone of camouflage needs to be. This zone of camouflage can range anywhere from as little as a quarter of an inch to as much as 1 inches, depending on how unsightly the old grafts are. If large grafts were placed close to the natural hairline, there may not be enough room to create this band of camouflage and the abnormal grafts would, therefore, need to be removed. The following patient is an excellent example of using camouflage as the sole hair transplant repair technique. He had rows of plugs placed on the front part of his scalp by an aggressive hair restoration surgeon when he still had a lot of hair. Initially, the plugs were hidden by this existing hair. Over time, the hair around these plugs began to thin and the large grafts became more prominent. Because the two rows of plugs were situated away from the hairline, there was room to transplant a wide zone of follicular units in front of the plugs. The correction was achieved in just one session of follicular unit hair transplantation. The hair for the camouflage was obtained from the remaining supply in the back of his scalp.
