WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A CAPILLARY IMPLANT?
Start with realistic expectations
A consultation with the surgeon can help you set realistic goals for the treatment of your hair loss. The only way to achieve the best outcome is discuss, be well informed, and establish a personalized plan.
It is important to know that loss of hair follicles due to alopecia is permanent. A successful transplant depends on quality of the donor hair, but also on the amount of hair to be restored. With both techniques, FUE and FUT, hair is “moved” however this means that no new follicles are produced, they are merely reassigned to a different place.
It is with the dexterity of the surgeon, that the transplanted hair can bring the appearance of density to bolding areas. It is a matter of mixing the old and the new, transplanted hair to give it a natural look. However it is important to note that the new density cannot be as it was before the hair loss.
Along those lines, it is imperative for a patient to understand this, depending on the donor area sometimes compromises have to be made in order for the transplant to have a natural look. For example, some areas may be left alone so that others may receive new hair. These compromises imply, that patients with massive hair loss will not have a full head of hair, but it is the job of the surgeon to create the best possible configuration working with the existing materials and conditions; and these are unique for each patient.
While it is the job of the surgeon to advice and perform in the most integral and ethical way, it is very important for the patient to inform him/herself well of the limitations and possibilities of the different hair loss solution procedures. A well informed patient can set realistic goals, and therefore will be a more satisfied client.
