Unique Considerations for African American Hair Transplant Patients
The nature of people’s hair, scalp, and skin can vary based on genetics and ethnicity. Because of this, there are some unique considerations made when restoring the hairline of patients of different backgrounds.
African American men and women have naturally curly hair, with a hair root structure that is also curly, which must be taken into account when planning a successful hair transplant procedure. The curliness and brittleness of the hair increase the chance of ingrown hairs and are important considerations of overall hair density in the restored area.
Is Hair Transplant Surgery Different for African American Patients?
Even though specific consideration is given to all patients based on their ethnic background, whether it be Caucasian, Asian, or African, hair transplant surgery is basically the same for all patients: follicular hair units are harvested from the donor area – typically from the back of the head – and transplanted into the area where hair loss has occurred. An additional review of the medical history of the individual patient is typically undertaken to ensure that the risk of keloid scarring, and other types of visible scarring is avoided. Because African American men typically tend to wear short hairstyles, we almost always utilize an FUE follicular unit extraction hair transplant procedure to avoid an unsightly linear scar in the donor area.
Your Important Initial Hair Restoration Consultation
During your initial consultation, our medical team will help you understand fully and completely the benefits as well as the risks associated with surgical hair restoration. We want to make sure you make an informed, confident choice regarding all your hair restoration options.
If hair transplant surgery is not appropriate for you, we offer clinically proven non-surgical hair loss treatment and hair replacement options which we will be happy to help you explore and understand. Our ultimate goal is to help each patient or hair replacement client make the best decision possible regarding hair loss treatment and hair restoration and to help you restore not only your hair but your self-confidence and have great-looking hair again.
