Hair Transplant: Natural Hairlines, Density and Coverage

Working in the hair loss industry had made me realize that there is a huge gap in the quality of work. There are only a few clinics that produce top quality results. If you’re considering hair transplant surgery, there are some things you should know. In this article, we’ll talk about the factors to consider for hair transplants and why a perfectly symmetrical hairline is a bad idea.

The results that a hair transplant will produce are dependent on a few factors. These factors need to be considered when discussing surgery with a specialist.

  • Natural Appearance and Hairline. A really top quality hair transplant will have an undetectable appearance. A skilled surgeon will place grafts precisely to create a natural look. This ability comes with experience and training.
  • Coverage. The amount of area that can be covered is dependent on the amount of healthy hair available in the donor site. If someone is completely bald, there will not be enough hair to cover the entire head.
  • Density. We all want to have the densest hair possible. But, when dealing with finite amounts of available grafts, we are always balancing density and coverage. Usually, some type of compromise must be reached.

Hairline Symmetry

Many people who come to the clinic for consultations believe they want a perfectly angled and symmetrical hairline. The problem is that very few of us have perfectly symmetrical facial features.

The best hair transplants have hairlines that are asymmetrical and irregular. They are designed to match the imperfections of the facial features. A perfectly straight hairline is just not natural on most people.

Consulting a hair transplant surgeon that understands how to design and plant a hairline that mimics Mother Nature’s imperfections will give your results that are so natural looking, no one will be able to tell that you had a transplant. A truly undetectable transplant starts with a great hairline.
