The Importance Of Manchester Hair Transplant

This is a brief article about how modern hair transplantation works to explain how far we have come today, with a small overview of the history of hair restoration. They are simply uncertain about how a hair transplant works and what they would need to do to sustain their impact over time as several of my patients come to see me. Have a look at Manchester Hair Transplant.

Let’s go to the beginning again. Okuda and Tamura found out in Japan back in 1939 and 1942 that hair transplanted from the back of the head to recreate pubic hair loss would survive and grow. This method of transplantation proved to be a significant step in understanding that hair transplanted from one region of the body to another can flourish and thrive due to public bathing practises in Japan and a disease condition in young Asian women who suffered from pubic hair loss. It was not until the renowned New York dermatologist Norman Orentreich in the 1950s, however that we learned that hairs migrated from the back of the head to the front of the head where like the initial hairs there, baldness would not be lost over time. He called this “donor dominance” phenomenon, suggesting that the hair transferred from the back of the head to a region of genetic susceptibility to hair loss would maintain the donor hair characteristics and not be lost over time. This was the brilliant discovery that we needed to realise that while being transplanted into an environment predisposed to hair loss, outcomes would continue to thrive.

If you wonder why hair is not prone to hair loss in the back of the head? Ok only God knows that. However this is the situation. Think of the baldest guy you meet (who has not shaved off the hair on the back of his head). Back there, he still has a patch of hair. Even the baldest guy on the back of his head has a preserved horseshoe of hair. The only trick then is to know what area is safe” for transplantation when conducting a hair transplant, i.e. what area will not be lost over time when the person gets older. That is one big reason why it can be troublesome to transplant a person at 20 years of age. We actually do not know how much hair would not fall out over time at the back of the head. Plus, as more hairs (that have not been transplanted) fall out as one ages, we may simply run out of donor hair to transplant the front of the head and retain a natural outcome.

This decision is really one of the key characteristics that distinguish a beginner from an accomplished hair transplant surgeon. A cardinal requirement for carrying out healthy hair transplant work is knowing who to operate on (that is who is safe and who is not). With the supply and demand rules, someone with tremendous donor hair density, i.e., there are a lot of hair follicles per square centimetre in the donor region, will naturally and impressively cover a tremendous degree of baldness in many cases. Using grafts carefully in a good pattern distribution with good angulation by a surgeon would help ensure that the outcome is both normal and dense given the degree of hair loss of a specific individual and the availability of available donor hair.
