Hair Transplantation Top of The Head

Hair Transplantation Top of The Head

Hair Transplantation Top of The Head A crown of hair transplantation on top of the head, in particular, started to bend down to the scalp, baldness is done to correct problems in the crown on the back of the scalp. The crown ends where the occipital bone begins (Hair transplantation is usually in the occipital hair from the skin, especially when using getting their hair grafts FUT). Sometimes the head is the highest point of this “hill” call.

Blood circulation in the crown area

Arteries run into smaller arteries and then branch again to form blood capillaries. It is responsible for providing the blood and nutrients the hair needs for the growth process to the follicles. Obviously, blood pressure and flow rate will be much higher inside large blood vessels compared to small blood capillaries.

The large blood vessels are located next to the follicles on the sides of the head but further away from the follicles we find at the apex. As a result, blood pressure in the head side and the flow velocity of the capillaries with, we will find will be slightly higher than the capillaries in the crown.

Hair features in the crown area (spiral)

A spiral is a point in the crown area he grew up in a circular pattern hair clockwise or counterclockwise. This spiral shape, how we do in the crown of the plantation is responsible in some way necessary. In some cases you may have more than one tour and this will increase the difficulties we encountered during hair transplantation surgery.

How does angular baldness develop?

Corner hair loss is a part of general baldness. This baldness occurs after it occurs in the anterior or middle area of the scalp. The importance of hair loss in the vertex area varies according to the age of the patient.

Sometimes hair loss occurs at substantially peak: starting from the center of the peak, and then spreads to surrounding area. Then take a circular shape and develop gradually grow outward. The circular surface, the diameter circle develops in a striking way growing up.

As a result, the decision should be careful while missing hair loss. Approximately 10 cm in diameter in this region will continue to occur until an apartment balding hair loss.

Crown of plantation: What results can I expect?

plantation in this area represents one of the most technically challenging area for many reasons.The cost of hair transplantation at a clinic in Istanbul, Turkey ranges from 600 to 2,000 Euros depending on each situation.The main challenges of such surgeries are:

First: the presence of a spiral point causes the elongation of hair from different angles, so the transplanted hair in the crown pattern must be created to ensure compliance with the terms of the angle of the hair’s natural hair.

Secondly, to obtain the maximum amount of the hair density of hair, in particular hair should be firmly clamped against the upper chip overlaps with the hair in the crown rest of the hair. A wise selection and placement of grafts for hair transplantation in this area will get the best results.

Third: There are a limited number of follicles in the donor area. On the other hand, the crown area is quite large and should be closed about 6,500 grafts.; This number is much larger number than in the donor area. In this case, a large number of hair loss or head to the front line means that there is no chance of recovery.

Previous because of these three reasons, before starting any treatment for a crown transplantation, we must first discuss the following points between patient and doctor.

Is there any hair loss in other areas of the scalp?

Although the crown area is considered important for many patients, it is generally “cosmetically less important” compared to the frontal line and anterior scalp. Fortunately, the crown is located on the upper part of the scalp, near the tip of the head, so while most people cannot see it, the front line is visible to all.

As a result, if you have hair loss in the front line, you should first treat this area and then start with the crown area. Female Hair Loss At The Crown

How much donor area do you have for transplant surgery?

The donor area is limited, and if the patient suffers from extensive hair loss, this means that the patient may not be able to get enough grafts to cover the entire scalp.

If you are planning to have crown transplantation and your donor area is limit , you should ask yourself the following question: “How will I look if I use all the grafts I have in my donor area for crown transplantation, and then I started to suffer from the hair falling on the front of the scalp.” The answer will of course “my hair will not look natural” .

Having a lot of hair in the crown area and suffering from a lack of hair on the front of the scalp will give us an abnormal and rare look. On the other hand, we can see that men have a heavy front line but suffer from some gaps in the crown area, and this is consider  normal and we see a lot. Therefore, if you have a limit donor area and can only transplant in one area of ​​the scalp, we recommend that you focus on the front line.

If the patient has gaps in the crown area of ​​the scalp and full hair density in the anterior area, we can evaluate the donor area differently here. Hair transplantation on top of the head is so important .

How old are you?

When we have young patients, we must be more accurate in assessing their condition before making any decision about a crown transplant. Although a “bald spot” for a young man is psychologically difficult, patients who experience thinning in this area may have more hair loss.

If we use all the grafts in the donor area and then the hair starts to fall out in other parts of the head. The patient will find himself with a dense hair in the crown area and baldness around the crown.

Based on what we talked about earlier, we therefore come to the following conclusion:

When we have patients suffering from constant hair loss and have a limited number of grafts. We must handle these grafts wisely.

If the hair starts to fall out in the crown area, it is possible that it will begin to fall out in the front area. For this reason, we prefer to use grafts for the anterior region and wait to see what will happen in the frontal area after hair transplantation on top of the head surgery. FUE Hair Transplant Results
