Natural Hairline – Mature and Receding Hairline Issues

Anyone with substantial hair loss undoubtedly wishes to obtain a natural hairline. The front hairline is the most critical aspect of any hair transplant. Previously, the front hairline was made to look like ‘dolls hair’ but modern surgical methods have allows us to create a natural looking hairline.

Today, the best hair implant for patients is one that uses follicular units. These units are placed close together in the front hairline, achieving a high density. The natural hairline is an irregular area with soft transition. Sparse, fine hairs are at the forehead and thicker, denser hairs sit behind the front. For many patients, the success of the front hairline determines if the procedure was the best hair transplant on offer.

FUE hair loss surgery 2023

FUE method - hair transplant techniqueIn the FUE hair transplant technique the donor hair extraction is carried out one by one the procedure is very different from the older strip technique the so-called Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT). The traditional FUT is a classical mechanism of hair replacement in which the donor hairs are taken out of the scalp in single, thin and long foil (forming a strip). Afterwards the cutting of hair in the separate follicular units is performed through a specialized microscope.

The surgeons prepare the little receiver holes in the bald region through a sterilized and fine needle equipment. The receiver sites are prepared prior to the extraction of follicular units. The grafts are then implanted on the receiving places on which the grafted units grow up just like the natural hair producing new follicles. The process of preparing the receiving areas and implantation of the follicular units is basically same in the both FUE and FUT techniques; however both are different in the graft extraction.

FUE is a better technique for those who obtained the poor results from the classical strip transplanting or people with tight scalp. In this technique the hairs are removed from the various parts of the body besides of donor scalp like trunk, beard and it is a highly confined method.
