How many follicles do I need for hair transplant ?


This is one of the most frequent questions posed by potential candidates for a Hair transplant in Lahore.
 To answer this question we will have to consider several aspects:
  • Be realistic with the work to be done: And transfer that vision to the patient, since it is the surgeon who, from his experience, knows what his appearance will look like in the future. For example, an extremely bald person (Norwood 6 or 7) and fine hair can never expect a high density transplant.  If those expectations were given, dissatisfaction would be inevitable. When one has lost 65-75% of their hair (the usual loss of class 6 and 7 patients) a part of the depopulated area could be covered with a good design, and this could surelygreatly improve the appearance of the patient. If we tried to achieve the original density we would not have hair in the donor area to complete the process.
 Evaluate hair loss, the donor area and what are the characteristics of the hair:
  • Working with real expectations, the total number of grafts  required for each patient will depend on the contrast between hair color and skin, the density of the donor area , the laxity of the scalp , the number of hairs per follicular unit and the character of the hair itself (color, texture, thickness ..). The surgeon will consider these factors and combine it with the patient's expectations and calculate the amount of work required.Still, satisfying a patient is sometimes very difficult to predict.
  • Take into account the age of the patient and the possible subsequent evolution of alopecia: We have already commented.
  • Consider if it can be carried out in a single procedure  or we need to schedule consecutive sessions: For the technique of the strip, it is usually done megasesiones of 3000 - 4000 UF, s in a day. For the FUE technique, as the hair harvest is slower , they are usually performed on several consecutive or alternate days.
  • And finally, take into account the total  short and long term cost for the patient.
 
 The incapacity of the doctor seems to be more common than is admitted. The failure of the professional that offers unrealistic expectations always brings us to a dissatisfied patient. And this can only be prevented with very clear explanations of the process that is going to be carried out, specifically defining the benefits that the patient can hope to achieve.  For Fue hair transplant surgeon in Lahore Pakistan visit our clinic
