In recent years, hair transplants have gained in popularity among patients suffering from balding. This should not come as a surprise. After all, hair loss negatively influences psychological health: starting with undermined self-confidence and ending even with depression. Contrary to all appearances, a hair transplant procedure is quite complex and just as with any other surgery it bears the risk of complications. In this post you’ll learn what are the consequences of an incorrectly performed hair transplant.
Incorrect follicle harvesting
The development of modern technologies plays a crucial role in medicine and contemporary doctors have at their disposal robots capable of cutting the epidermis around the follicle. Does this modern solution turn out well in hair transplants? Not necessarily. The world’s top specialists continue to harvest follicles manually. Contrary to an experienced surgeon, a robot cannot account for the individual needs of a given patient. It runs the same way in any part of the head, which means that it fails to see changes in the hair growth direction or changing skin tension. Major faults in harvesting follicles by robots also include a failure to select the right blades. Let me stress again that each patient and each balding case necessitates an individual approach, and thus if you decide to go for a hair transplant, learn first whether the follicles will be harvested by a doctor or by a robot.
An unnatural look of the growing hair
Your transplanted hair will accompany you for long years, thus the surgeon needs to pay attention to every small detail during the transplant. After a correctly performed transplant, not only should the hair grow, but it should look very natural and nice. An experienced surgeon reconstructs the natural shape of your hairline. If the hairline is too sharp and straight, the procedure should be deemed incorrectly performed. Please note that after a well-done hair transplant the hairline always preserves the natural curve adequate for the patient’s age. Moreover, it is not “sharp” and fades delicately. The angle at which the hair grows also constitutes a challenge for doctors. If follicles are implanted at a wrong angle, the hair growing back will protrude and be difficult to style.
How can I thus be sure that the transplant will be performed correctly? The answer is very simple… the procedure should be performed by an experienced doctor, who can foresee its course and consequences. You should be able to rest assured and avoid any unfavourable consequences if you go for a transplant with a doctor with many years of experience.
