This is a basic article on how modern hair transplantation works with a brief review of the history of hair regeneration to understand how far we have come today. When many of my patients see me, they are simply confused about how a hair transplant works and what to do to maintain their results over time.

Let's go back to the beginning. In 1939 and 1942, Okuda and Tamura in Japan discovered that hair transplanted from the back of the head to restore the loss of skin hair would survive and grow. Due to public bath rituals in Japan and the disease state of young Asian women suffering from pubic hair loss, this type of transplantation proved to be an important step to know that hair transplanted from one area of ​​the body to another would thrive and they would stay alive. It was only until the famous New York dermatologist, Norman Orentreich, in the 1950s knew that the hairs moved from the head to the front of the head, where there is baldness that does not do I would lose over time as the original hair. He called this the phenomenon of "donordominance", which means that hair that moves from the back of the head to an area of ​​genetic susceptibility to hair loss retains the characteristics of the donor's hair and will not be lost with time. This was the excellent progress we needed to know that the results would continue to survive despite being transplanted to a hair loss area.

Why are hairs on the back of the head not exposed to hair loss if asked? Well, only God knows. However, this is the case. Think of the baldest man you know (who has not shaved the hair on the back of the head). He still has a hair patch there. Even the scaly man has a horseshoe preserved with hair on the back of the head. The only trick in performing a hair transplant is knowing which area is "safe" for the transplant, that is, which area will not be lost when the person grows over time. This is one of the main reasons why transplantation of a person at 20 years of age can be problematic. We just don't know how much hair on the back of the head doesn't fall over time. In addition, we can simply run out of donor hair to transplant the front of the head and maintain a natural result as more hair (which was not transplanted) falls off with age.

This judgment is really one of the most important features that distinguishes a surgeon who has experience in hair transplantation from a beginner. Knowing who to operate with (ie, who is safe and who is not) is a basic prerequisite for performing a safe hair transplant job. With the supply and demand legislation, a person who has a huge density of donor hair, that is, there are many hair follicles per. Square centimeter in the donor area that can cover a huge degree of baldness in a natural way. impressive in many cases. The use of the surgeon's grafts in a good pattern distribution with good angulation will help ensure that the result is both natural and dense, given the degree of hair loss of a particular person and the supply of useful donor hair.

The second issue that often arises is, "Will the hair be transplanted like the other hairs, I have that not transplanted? Should I cut it like my other hair?" The answer is a resounding yes. I also explain that a hair transplant procedure simply moves the hair from one side of the head to the other, such as taking a flower out of a pot and moving it to another. It will grow in its new environment as in the previous one. Although the number of transplanted hairs will not be exactly the same as lost hair, the surgeon's use of a good technique can make 5000 transplanted hairs (a typical large session) resemble 50,000 lost hair (the beginning of hair loss). hair to the point where baldness becomes apparent.)
