How Is the Natural Appearance Achieved in Hair Transplantation?

If you’re considering a hair transplant, you might be put off by the idea of an unnatural, uneven finish that doesn’t quite resemble the look you were going for. It’s understandable – your hair isn’t something you can easily cover up or hide in your day-to-day life, which is why it’s important for your surgeon to get it right the first time.

In this blog post, we’re going to take a look at how surgeons achieve a natural appearance when performing hair transplants, while also giving you some tips on how to best care for yours following your procedure. Let’s take a look!

What is a hair transplant?

Hair transplantation is a form of surgery used to restore hair growth in areas where natural hair loss has occurred. The process itself involves taking healthy hair follicles from one area of the scalp (often referred to as the donor site) and transplanting them into balding or thinning areas (often referred to as the recipient site).

Hair transplants can be performed using either a strip method (known as an FUT hair transplant) where a strip of skin containing hair follicles is removed from the donor area and transplanted into the recipient site, or a FUE hair transplant in which individual hair follicles are harvested from the donor area and then implanted into the recipient site. Another option is the DHI hair transplant, which uses a special device to implant the hair follicles directly into the scalp, without the need for stitches or staples.

How do surgeons achieve a natural-looking hair transplant?

Achieving a natural-looking hair transplant requires skill, experience, and artistry, so your surgeon must be able to expertly design and execute a personalised plan that accurately mimics your existing hair pattern and density – this is going to be the most important factor in creating a natural finish.

Secondly, method matters: when it comes to picking the most natural-looking hair transplant, a DHI hair transplant in Turkey is most likely going to be your best option. DHI transplants are performed using a custom tool that gives the surgeon full control over the placement, depth, and angle of the transplanted hair follicle, making it easier for them to achieve the most natural-looking finish.

How to ensure a natural-looking hair transplant

Aside from opting for a DHI hair transplant, here are a couple of other ways you can ensure the best results from your procedure:

Respect the recovery period

The recovery period of your hair transplant is perhaps one of the most key parts of the process; this is where the new hair will start to settle into place, and if any hair grafts are dislodged, this can create an uneven finish. To ensure that you don’t end up with any patchiness or an uneven finish, respect the full recovery period: this means avoiding direct sunlight, heavy exercise, headwear, and certain hair care products for the first few weeks.

Choose an experienced surgeon

It’s absolutely essential that you opt for a highly reputable and qualified surgeon to carry out your hair transplant. A poorly qualified surgeon could end up botching the procedure, leaving you with substantial scarring, while also increasing pain and discomfort during the procedure itself. Always read customer reviews online before opting for a surgeon, or ask around for recommendations from friends and family members.

Consult first

In order to ensure that your surgeon fully understands your aims and intended outcome for your hair, it’s a good idea to have a consultation first. Not only will this give you an idea of their expertise and skills, but the surgeon will also be able to examine your hair and advise you on the best course of action.

Do hair transplants look natural?

When performed by an experienced and trained professional, a hair transplant will look just as good – or even better! – than your natural hair. This is because surgeons will explicitly use hair from the side of your head and the back of your neck when grafting the donor follicles; hair on this area of the body is almost identical to the hair on your head, so it’s much easier to replicate a natural look.

Can someone tell if I’ve had a hair transplant?

If your hair transplant is carried out by a skilled surgeon, there’s no reason why someone should be able to tell that you have anything done. The key to achieving a natural-looking result is to make sure that your surgeon has the necessary experience and skill to accurately recreate your existing hair pattern and density effectively.

What’s the most natural looking hair transplant?

A DHI hair transplant is likely the hair transplant that’s going to give you the most natural looking results; the precision of the tool used for this method allows the surgeon total control of the placement of hair follicles.

What is the success rate of DHI hair transplant?

The success rate of a DHI hair transplant is incredibly high, at 97%. Those with failed DHI hair transplants typically either failed to respect the recovery period, or didn’t have enough hair grafts to ensure a fully comprehensive treatment.
