How to Get Natural-Looking Hair Restoration Surgery: 6 Tips

hair lossThe only permanent form of hair restoration is hair transplant surgery. Everyone wants the most natural-looking hair from a hair transplant. Follow these 6 tips for the best results:

Tip 1.    Evaluate the hair transplant surgeon’s artistic ability in designing a hairline.
The hairline is where the hair meets the forehead and it’s one of the first features people glance at when scanning your face. The hairline helps define the borders of the face. Ask to see photographs of the surgeon’s hair transplant patients after the hair transplants have grown in. Ask to meet some of them. Evaluate for yourself whether the hairlines look like they are the right shape to define the face, and whether they look natural to you.>Continue reading How to Get Natural-Looking Hair Restoration Surgery – 6 Tips” />

Tip 2.    Don’t start the hairline start too low.

One money-maker for the unscrupulous hair transplant surgeon is to start the hairline too low. This looks artificial and the hair will be too thin in the transplanted area. So, guess what, you’ll need a second “sitting” (hair transplant) to fill in. If you notice a lot of low hairlines in the photos or the surgeon is pressuring you to start your hair line too low, move on to the next surgeon!

Tip 3.    Insist on Follicular Unit Graphs.
In the past, hair transplants involved using round plugs of hair with 5-8 hairs, which looks fake, like doll’s hair. Shockingly, some hair transplant surgeon still use plugs. Follicular units are state-of-the-art and they create a natural look. Follicular units are small bundles of hair follicles (1-3 hairs). Almost 20 years ago, hair transplant doctor Lawrence Shapiro developed special techniques and specific blades for inserting these small follicular units into the scalp’s balding areas. Follicular unit graphs create a much more natural look that is often indistinguishable from the original hair.

Tip 4.    Look for lots and lots of photos of thousands of hair transplant patients.
It’s logical: The more someone practices a skill, the better they get at it. Some hair transplant surgeons are busy with other activities most of the time, and might do only a few hair transplants a month. These hair transplant surgeons will not have as high a skill level as a hair transplant doctor who does transplants every day. They should have thick albums or a computerized photo album filled with photos of hair transplant patients (before and after). They should be able to show you photos of their patients who have hair loss similar to yours, and you should have the opportunity to meet some of these patients. You should be able to meet with the surgeon, without going through a salesperson first.

Tip 5.    Follow pre- and post-transplant instructions.
Follow the directions before and after a hair transplant to help prevent problems. You will generally heal faster and get better results. For example, you will need to report all the medications you are taking, and avoid spicy foods for a short time.

Tip 6.    Take Help Hair™ Shake for faster results and better-looking hair.
