How do we make a natural hairline?

The problem of excessive hair fall, thinning hair, and balding has been bothering most of the people, regardless of their gender. They will try to find the best treatment for their hair and some end up with a hair transplant. Of course, hair transplant is the only way to get that hair back on the area that is already bald. However, the result of a hair transplant from each clinic/hospital is different. If you are unlucky, you might end up getting a bad hair transplant result from an inexperienced surgeon. The unnatural look, hairline that is TOO straight, hairline that is too high or too low, hair that grows in a wrong direction can happen, and it is uneasy to fix.

A natural hairline is what most clients want, but not every clinic/hospital can do it. Creating new hairline to mimic a natural hairline needs good practice and technique. Our surgeon, Dr Pukpinya Jangjetriew, has described as following;

On the recipient area, the surgeon will create a density of 40-50 grafts/sq.cm, which is a worldwide standard for a hair transplant. However, the surgeon will also have to consider other factors before selecting the ideal density for the client. Some people walked in with very severe alopecia. In this case, the donor will not be enough to place to the whole area with the standard density. The surgeon will have to adjust the density of the hair and manage the donor area for the best and balanced outcome.

Apart from the density, the surgeon will also have to create a natural hairline for the client. The surgeon does this by placing the one-hair graft in the few front rows and placing the two-hair or three-hair graft further to the back. This will create a gradient of the thickness of the transplanted hair. If the hairline starts thick, it will look too rigid and unnatural. You can have a look at your hairline before a transplant. You can see that the hairline starts off being thin, then gradually gets thicker.

If you look at your hairline closely, you will see that your hairline is not exactly straight. When the surgeon draws the hairline, she will also try to make it irregular to mimic the natural hairline. If we make it too straight, it will look like you are wearing a wig, which looks fake.

The height of the hairline is also important to frame your face. Too high, your forehead will look big, and your face will look longer. Too low, your hairline will move when you lift your eyebrows, and your face will look shorter. The height from your chin to the tip of your nose and the height of your forehead should be a 1:1 proportion.

The direction of the hair is the hardest thing to correct once the transplant is complete because the surgeon will have to extract the hair follicle out and place it back in again one by one. It could make a permanent scar on the recipient area and create thick fibrosis under the skin and lead to a decrease in the survival rate of the transplanted hair. At Hairtran Clinic the doctor will follow the direction and angle of the pre-existing hair. This is a critical step, and the doctor will be doing this step alone to make sure that everything will be as planned. If the bald area is on the crown area, the doctor will recreate the whirls for the client as well.

The donor area (the back of your head) is another area that the doctor has to be careful and aware of the natural look. This is because the hair will not grow back on the area that the doctor extracts the follicle out. If the doctor harvests the follicle too close to each other, it will create a bald spot or uneven thinning area. At Hairtran Clinic, the doctor will leave some hair around the wound to cover the small (0.8mm) scar from harvesting. Having a larger donor area means those scars can spread out better and will not create any thinning area.

After reading all this, you will see that creating a natural look is not easy, and there are many factors to consider and need a lot of training. Hairtran Clinic can do everything for a natural look. You will never have to guess if you will get a good or bad hair result. IT WILL ALWAYS BE GOOD AND WORTH THE MONEY! You can see our work via this link. (Gallery)
