Hair transplantation surgery is varieties with many variations, that consideration of what your genetical ethnic is, the variations in the success of the operation. In addition to technical aspects, Dr. Robert M. Bernstein MD, FAAD, clinical professor of dermatology at Columbia University, New York, and a hair transplantation surgeon and director of Bernstein Medical Hair Restoration in New York, explained that racial variations influential at all stages of production , including the initial diagnosis there are complications, rounded design, and aesthetic considerations for the future that may arise as a result of racial variations in hair follicles and growth patterns, probability, and its diameter.
Dr. Bernstein explains that the hair probability - the number of hairs per square centimeter - differ between ethnic groups. Caucasians, high, and then in Asia and Africa with the lowest probability. Africans and whites have a diameter of thin hair, while Asia has a diameter, thick coarse wool, which occupies more space. The average amount of hair that is included in each follicular unit also varies, since it grows mostly in groups of 1-4 per follicle. Asia group is ranged from 1 to 2 percent of the follicle, while Africa 3 and Caucasians place on 2-4 of the follicle. In addition, the correctness or inflection makes a big variation in the results. Her hair is better bend stenosis and in Africa, Asia, whereas the direct and tough with Caucasians fall somewhere in between depending on the client. Asia, it seems that there are more because of its thickness and bend Africa is also reminiscent of a thick layer, but it is very good. Here, Bernstein explains how these changes affect the solution phase and is involved in hair transplantation.
Diagnosis: The main variation in the diagnosis of diseases causing hair loss occurs between men and women for hair loss. But beyond these variations, the diagnosis of certain races only traction alopecia is defined as the observed primarily among African-American women who wear tight braids hair loss side between the braided hair, or around the root causes of hair may depart. Another form of traumatic loss, hair in women is dominated by the black comes from the constant heat style close to the scalp and harsh chemical process known as central centrifugal scarring alopecia (CCCA). The next time the disease is usually reversible if the woman is the practice of destroying the hair and not to arrest, as well as a permanent loss of hair in these areas (as determined by biopsy of the scalp), they become very good candidate for hair transplantation because of health of the donor does not depend on injuries. Bernstein noted that the diagnosis is an important first step in identifying your operating strategy, because it is a factor that depends on whether you have a hair donor is healthy enough for the desired results.
PROCEDURE: With regard to technical aspects of the procedure, hair transplantation, Bernstein explained that there are two ways to collect vaccination. One long, thin strips decomposed follicular and other ways to extract the follicular units under a microscope, called a follicular extraction. Among Caucasians, 2 procedures are clear. But in Africa there is a big variation, because the device is curved follicles in the skin, in contrast to white or Asian. Collection of follicular easier in Asia, because his hair thick and tough. Strip collection usually get better results, regardless of what your genetical ethnic is. However, the process, regardless of race, should always be done by the team doctor.
DESIGN: There are many variations, cultural and physical impact on the final draft of hair transplantation. Asia, in contrast to the white and Indian, in particular, the hair line of large wild game dishes, because they are very concerned about the frontal hair hair and wedding hair requires more extensive. "Often, we are more or less weight in the front and rear, which is especially important in a number of donor hair is healthy," says Bernstein. In the Caucasus, on the other hand, the decline in the temple is small, it is quite acceptable, then you can transplantation a little more, depending, again, a good amount of donor hair on the back and sides. Africa can not use any method over a comb, because it does not and curly and smooth and the designs are much less forgiving. "Africa is usually a good candidate for hair transplantation surgery, compared with Asian Donors and white, if you have a good probability for all bare spots or thin blanket," said Bernstein.
Complications: There were some variations in other races, which can cause complications after surgery, which the customer must be aware, Bernstein suggested, and personal history and development of scarring of the skin is always possible to discuss. In Africa, there is an increased incidence and increased thickening of keloid scar. In addition, they have little flexibility in the excise of the hair on his scalp and donors face a higher risk of scarring compared with Caucasians. Asia is not usually thicker, but the wound may be harmed or visible incision scars because their hair grow perpendicular to the scalp, so if your shortcut actually see over your scalp - and not transparent not hide the scars. Fortunately, says Bernstein, recipient area usually has no scars at all, regardless of what your genetical ethnic is.
The final aesthetic: "In the last edition styles hair transplantation recipients must all be aware that you generally will not be able to wear his new haircut is close to the scalp, to avoid visible scars - and this applies to all races," warned Dr. Bernstein. "In addition, we try not to judge the future of hair loss in humans when the patient is too young - we try to wait at least 30 years old pattern of baldness is determined. We want to be sure that a great opportunity for future hair loss should be limited and that this region is stable and healthy donor, usually on the sides and back of his scalp. "
The fact that patients should be aware of ethnic and racial variations and provide a team of qualified hair transplantation surgeon to choose who has experience in your type of hair really. Ask questions, ask for references and questions before and after photos to be confident.
