Artistry in hair restoration is one of the key differentiating points between an average result and an excellent one — one that is both natural and maximizes the appearance of fullness.
It is not difficult to take hair from the back of the head and move it to a bald or thinning area on the scalp. However, an artistic hair restoration surgeon is not simply in the “moving business”.
Since the surgeon is only able to use a small number of hair grafts relative to what was once there, the importance of angle, direction and orientation of the grafts becomes critical for greater hair density and for achieving the most natural, aesthetically-pleasing result. When I look at a patient, I take into consideration the anatomy of my patient’s face, the shape of their head as well as their facial features. Recognizing that hair restoration is constructed on a three dimensional canvas, is key. I design a hair line that takes all of these factors into consideration along with the age of the patient, degree of loss, availability of donor hair, family history and hair quality as well as the patient’s desired goals.
My patients don’t come to me for just surgery; they come to me for results that are life changing, changes that you have to live with — today, tomorrow and for the rest of their lives.
Surgery itself is not the challenge, rather the challenge is finding an artistic surgeon with an eye for the subtleties that create an undetectable result. Ask yourself, what look is important to you: Cosmetic or natural? That answer should guide your search for your personal hair restoration surgeon.
