This hair loss sufferer came to our hair restoration forum seeking hair loss help and posted the below hair loss question. Many of our hair restoration forum members gave this seeking hair transplant patient some excellent information.
How much hair density do I need to achieve a natural looking hair transplant with no signs of hair thinning?
You have been given some excellent information from our hair restoration forum community members.
The illusion of hair density is determined by a number of factors including the number of follicular unit grafts per square centimeter, the number of hairs per follicular unit graft, and hair characteristics (hair shaft thickness, and hair color).
To create an adequate illusion of hair density with hair transplantation, typically 50% of the natural hair density must be achieved between natural hair and transplanted hair - though this will also depend on hair characteristics.
Other key factors in ensuring a natural hair transplant include, the artistic design of the hairline, the strategic placement of the transplanted hair grafts, and the direction and angle of the hair implants.
