Keep in Mind Before Hair Transplant
All the hair transplant representatives or the sales person will make you believe that you are right candidate for hair transplantation as you have very good donor zone, which will aid you in achieving a natural result quickly. You must not blindly trust them as everybody has different type of hairs and not every hair is suitable for hair transplant. In this post we will be sharing the best type of hairs suitable for hair transplant. Hair type is one of the most important factors in hair transplantation than the density of the donor zone. The experts evaluate the hair type on the basis of Caliber, color and geometric property before a transplant.
Calerib: Thick hair is prominent choice
In general, the thickness of hair is between 50 and 60 microns. Experts consider a hair of 70 microns as very thick hair and a hair of 40 microns as thin hair texture. Since the surgeons have to consider a follicular unit as consisting of various hairs, hence they double the thickness while inserting the unit. At the time of insertion you can say that 3 hairs of 70 microns thickness that is equal to 210 microns and minimum 3 hairs of 40 microns thickness, which is equivalent to 120 microns. So the difference of coverage in between both types of hair is large. Hence surgeons believe that thick hair creates more coverage than fine hair. So it is suitable.
Geometric Property: Curly hair type
Curly hair is more preferable as it gives greater sensation of coverage than a straight hair. Curly hair has more spatial volume. However, there is one disadvantage of curly hair in this regard. Curly hair is technically more difficult to extract when compared to straight hair.
Skin laxness: Should have good elasticity
However, the test of skin laxness is only important in case of strip technique. The laxity of donor zone is required to be tested before operating. This is done in order to calculate the area that has to be extracted. This aids in avoiding problems when surgeons close the wound. Candidates having poor elasticity in the occipital zone can go for individual extraction of follicles that is FUE technique.
