Does a partial hair system blend well with a hair transplant? Is it undetectable?
This type of approach is reasonable for select hair loss patients. First, I have worked with several guys who were able to have a hair restoration procedure, slightly modify the way they wore or styled their hair system, and “pull off” the surgery without their friends/customers knowing. Then in a few months they can modify the system again to show the hair transplant result, and consider moving forward with a second procedure much later.
I posted a fellow on this hair loss forum a few months ago who had a limited donor hair supply, such as a hair plugs repair case. We could really improve the front, but this patient does not have sufficient resources to cover the top and balding crown. For a patient like this, a combination of hair restoration surgery to give a natural hairline, and hair system to cover the top; works extremely well.
