Some of the key points to creating a natural hairline include 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, creating a nonlinear frontal hairline, and placing the hairline appropriately on the forehead.
The procedure at Physician’s Hair Institute is done in megasession hair transplants 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 undetectable, 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 scar-less.
