This 38 years old Arab patient underwent an FUE procedure 5 months back for his frontal hairline and crown areas. You can see that the growth is satisfactory. However, the midscalp region which had adequate cover at the time of the porcedure looks barren now.
The aim of posting this picture is to show that native hair within the defined balding area shall continue to get thinner and disappear.
In contrast, the planted hair, being from the permanent zone (safe zone) shall continue to grow are will never fall.
The hype of hair transplant is such that we get a lot of clients asking for a better definition of the hairline and also temple filling to give them a younger look.
They might not be otherwise called bald but the current Bollywood image of a male is one with a high definition hairline like that of Salman Khan and his ilk. Most such cases are those who want to look younger at their place of work, are in transition from one partner to another or suffer from body dysmorphia. Such cases are only going to increase in the days to come.
It can be a hard decicion amidst the media hype that money can beget. There are many centers the world over and theer are many good hair transplant surgeons. To every good hair transplant surgeon there are 10 outright BAD centers for hair transplant. So how does one choose if the center and doctor are right for you?
Forexample see these pictures. A type 6 male pattern baldness patient underwent a procedure using 3500 grafts from the scalp. A look at the pictures will show you how there has been dismal hair growth even after 10 months.
Most such centers get clients through aggressive marketing where the client has not seen a single patient who has had a good result at the particular center. This is a nightmarish result and all due to improper research in selecting where to go for the hair transplant. The only option now is a body hair transplant.
