Hair transplant is not the development of hair; it is simply relocating of hair from the back side of head to the bald area. Most common area where baldness occurs is the crown area of the head. It mainly depends upon the supply and demand rule. For majority of the people, even those with severe hair loss, hair growth is present at the back of the head. Crown is the area behind the highest point of the head. It is also known as “VERTEX”. In many people, it is rather flattened region like the size of palm of the hand. The crown is the largest bald area with extreme hair loss, mostly common in men.In addition to its big size, crown region has some aspects like hair emerging from the scalp and spirals in an outward direction. The crown is involved in many hair loss patterns which we see, both common for males and females. At our clinic we design before hair transplant in crown area in a spiral like pattern.After latest research in Hair transplantation field, it is recommended that now day, there are three main factors determined for hair restoration surgery at crown area of head and these are:
- Your Donor area.
- The size of the crown.
- The hair line and frontal density.
First we will discuss about the donor area, before starting the process, one might want to consider donor area to cover the front area. It’s a necessary step to start the process.Next comes in this process is the size of crown. Crown size is a significant factor, if the area of the crown is bigger than the palm of your hand, completely bald, and you have very fine hair, you can get good average from your first surgery.Second surgery is needed to increase the density. It is important that First scar should be removed before the second surgery. Covering a crown is like carpeting a basketball. There are always some spaces underneath the curve. It all depends upon the efficiency of the surgeon who is doing this because the whole surgery depends on the well qualified Surgeon.
Finally consider that how dense and how low the hair in the front is miniaturized have throughout the frontal area is a sign that this area may need attention in future. If you don’t have to use grafts to lower the hair line, it is best to use on the crown area.However, Hair transplanting the crown is indeed a difficult decision that cannot be made lightly.If you have realistic expectations and reasonable density, you can get some fantastic results at the crown. The first and the most important step is to find a qualified and experienced Surgeon. Some people are satisfied to reestablish little thinner hair on the areas where once they were totally bald…however some people are never satisfied.
