FUE – Can A Hair Transplant Always Offer Full Coverage?
The decision to initiate a FUE hair transplant lahore procedure is an important one and it is understandable that our customers will have a number of questions and concerns about this.
The question that arises more is – do I get full coverage from a transplant? In other words, there is a natural and understandable desire to be able to run your fingers through a full head of hair again.
Transplantation, not generation
The first thing to remember is that this procedure – called Follicular Unit (Hair) Extraction – is technically a redistribution of hair. No matter how skilled a practitioner is, they cannot conjure up new hair or create new hair follicles; it must be transplanted from other parts of the scalp where the existing hair is thickest and carefully placed in the area to be covered.
How much hair can be harvested?
To answer the question of how much coverage you can expect from a transplant, we must first explain why donor hair is taken from the back or sides of the head. Simply put, it is because this area is resistant to the hormone Dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, the hormone responsible for male pattern baldness. It is therefore rare for men to lose hair from these parts of the head and why donor hairs are extracted therefrom to cover a bald area or increase hair density in receding areas.
Depending on the area to be covered, only so much hair is available for extraction from the donor area to prevent damage to this part of the hair.
A follicular unit, or graft, contains 1-5 strands of hair and on average there are 90-120 units, or 100-250 hairs, per square centimeter. About a third of all follicles in the donor area can be extracted.
With a FUE procedure, on average a maximum of 6,600 units can be available, which seems a lot, but if there is extensive baldness over a large area, it is unrealistic to expect 100% coverage of a transplant.
Plans for the best possible coverage
Not all 6,600 grafts can be extracted at the same time; you may need several sessions for this. Our experienced transplant surgeons will therefore carefully plan how the grafts are extracted to prevent bald spots in the donor area and take future hair loss possibilities into account. Rest assured, the result will be a pleasant result and an attractive head of hair.
