Why Some People Do Not Want To Have Hair Transplant Surgery

Hair transplant surgery is not for everyone.  In fact, some people have been so disappointed and even angered about their results that they have filed class action lawsuits against hair transplant surgeons and clinics.  There are several reasons they give for their dissatisfaction. 

1.  Underestimating Procedures.  Certain surgeons and clinics underestimate the number of procedures necessary to achieve the desired effect.  This leads people to have a false hope of having a full head of hair in a very short time.  When this does not happen, they are understandably angry.  They did not get what they were promised. 

2.  Underestimating Price.  Surgeons usually do give some sort of estimate of the cost of the entire procedure of a hair transplant.  A reputable surgeon will emphasize that it is only an estimate and that things may change once the procedures are started.  Also, she will give an honest accounting of what she expects the procedure to cost. 

An unscrupulous surgeon, on the other hand, will distort the facts about his hair transplant procedures.  He will try to get the patient started by stating that the price will be very low.  He will know all along that the procedures will cost much more, but he will lowball the price anyway just to get the patient started so that they have to finish.

3.  Creating Scars.  All hair transplant surgery will create small scars.  Some people find them unacceptable.  They want to wear their hair short, and they see the scar peeking out from under their hair, even if no one else does.  Of course, there are also physicians with poor skills who create large scars and people who are prone to scarring.  Hair transplant scars are a sore subject for man people. 

4.  Uneven hairlines.  Some people who have hair transplant surgery end up with uneven hairlines.  This is caused by the oversight of negligent doctors.  If a person gets to work with a reputable surgeon, things like this just do not happen.  However, if someone has seen a person with this problem, it will likely turn them off to hair transplant surgery for good. 

5.  Old-Fashioned Plugs.  People with the large plugs that look like doll's hair or toothbrush bristles are still around.  While this type of hair transplant is rarely done anymore, the effects are still evident among people of a certain age.  If someone who knows one of these people has a balding problem, they are not likely to think of hair transplants.  The only way they would is if they have some other, good, experience with them. 

6.  Doctors Who Put Money above the Patients' Interest.  Any doctors who make decisions that are not based on the welfare of his patient are following their Hippocratic Oath in its intentions.  Doctors are held to a high standard and when a surgeon tries to convince a patient to get hair transplant surgery when it is not best for him, he is not really acting as a doctor should.   The horror stories are out there and many people are aware of them. 

There is a higher rate of suicide following hair transplant and other cosmetic surgeries.  This is partly because the patients are disappointed that their lives do not miraculously change overnight.  However, other reasons for their despair are poor results and unscrupulous doctors.  People who are afraid of this misery are likely to bow out. 


What Is Hair Transplant Micro Grafting?

Hair transplant procedures have changed in the decades since they were first done.  The earlier methods of using hair plugs were not satisfactory.  People looked like they had doll's heads, with hair sticking out of their hair in clumps.  Now hair transplants are more natural looking because of a procedure called micro grafting. 

Most hair transplant surgeries today involve micro grafting to some degree.  Micro grafts hold about three or four hair follicles.  Older style hair grafts often held more like a dozen hair roots.  These new micro grafts are only possible because skilled surgeons have refined the methods of extracting them. 

Micro grafts are useful in hair transplant surgery because they can give the hair a quite natural appearance.  The hair emerges from the scalp in the most natural way, with the same number of hairs that nature intended.  If the procedure is done correctly, no one can tell the difference. 

Natural looking hairlines have been difficult to achieve with hair transplant surgery.  Micro grafts make it possible for a brand-new hairline to be attained that does not call attention to itself in the least.  This is quite an accomplishment after the stares that many people endured in the past because of bad hair plugs. 

However unnoticeable and natural micro grafts appear, they do not give you a full, thick head of hair.  For that, many hair transplant surgeons will use micro grafts for the hairline and the front and edges of the hair.  Then, they will use mini grafts farther back on the scalp. 

These mini grafts used in hair transplant surgery contain three to eight shafts of hair.  They give the hair fullness in areas where they will not stand out as looking fake.  It is a common circumstance to have the mini grafts in the central and crown of the scalp and micro grafts at the hairline and around the edges. 

If a person had this arrangement after a hair transplant and then shaved the micro grafts, the mini grafts would look decidedly unnatural.  However, with the micro grafts on the leading edges, they blend in and give the hair fullness.  They serve an important function. 

Previously, when hair plugs were used, doctors did the hair transplant surgeries much differently.  They used an instrument called a trephine to cut circular grafts from 2mm to 5mm in diameter.  These plugs were inserted into the balding area. 

Now, a multi-bladed knife can be used to cut long thin strips of donor tissue.  The strip of scalp will be about an inch wide and five inches long.  Then, the hair transplant doctor pulls the skin together where this was taken out, and stitches it together. 

Finally, the micro grafts will be finished by being divided into individual grafts by using a stereomicroscope.  The surgical team will make a variety of grafts from eight-shaft mini grafts to one or two shaft micro grafts.  These will be moved during hair transplant to the recipient sites so that the hair will have a natural hairline with fullness on top. 

Hair transplant today would not be the same without the use of micro grafts.  They make for more natural-looking results.  Also, the pain factor goes down with the use of the smaller grafts.  They have proven to be an excellent discovery.
