How is a natural hairline created?
Some of the key points to creating a natural hairline include the following:
Orienting the grafts in the same direction as the native hair.
Utilizing only one haired follicular units in the frontal hairline area.
Using finer hairs in the anterior (frontal) most hairline.
Choosing a density that appears natural. Dr. Keene will help you make choices based on the extent of your hair loss, available donor, and personal preferences.
Placing the hairline appropriately on the forehead. There are no set rules that apply. You won’t want the same hairline that you had when you were 18, because that may appear unnatural as you age. But placing the hairline too high will also be a detriment to the outcome. Dr. Keene will give you recommendations and work with your preferences.
Creating a nonlinear frontal hairline. If you look closely at anyone’s hairline, you will see that that it is actually irregular in most cases. Rather than a line, it undulates, and peaks. (But even this “rule is variable -Dr. Keene has seen shaved hairlines on a full head of hair in both women and men that show very little irregularity. Variations in preferences and natural characteristics are considered when doctor Keene fills in your new hairline.)
Will I have a natural hairline and will scarring result?
The procedure at Physician’s Hair Institute is done in megasession hair transpants of up to 3000 grafts in one day, or up to 5000 grafts in a consecutive day hair transplant surgery, depending on factors such as donor density and scalp laxity. In general, unless we aimed to do more ones and two haired grafts, we would not be able to take enough donor to do more than 5000 grafts in a consecutive day hair transplant session due to scalp elasticity. However, it is the number of hairs moved rather than the number of grafts that yields better density. Since moving more hair will provide more density, what matters is the number of hairs that are moved, not just the number of grafts.
So you can start enjoying your new, permanent hair faster than ever. Your hair transplants will be virtually undetectable by friends and family, once they have healed, leaving a natural hairline with virtually no scarring in grafted areas. A fine linear scar in the donor area is covered by overlying hair, and is typically undetectable. Or with the FUE donor removal technique, you will have small 1 mm excisions that will heal and leave fill in with scar tissue but can be undectable, even when hair is virtually shaved However, if you do want to wear your hair very short to the point of almost shaved, it is important to note that there is not a hair restoration procedure that is completely scarless.
