Can a Hair Transplant Really Look Natural?
One of the main things people worry about when choosing a hair transplant is whether the final results will look as natural as they would like.
A natural looking hair transplant relies on a number of different factors, from the quality of the procedure to the quality of the donor area. Nobody wants to pay out for a life-changing hair transplant, only to be left disappointed with their long-awaited results.
We take a look at some of the ways you can ensure you get the most natural looking hair transplant and what questions to ask to make sure you’re getting the highest quality care.
Choosing the Very Best Clinic and Surgeon
Your hair transplant results will depend on the quality of the procedure and the surgeon. We’ve seen many procedures that have been done by unqualified surgeons or done at ‘budget’ clinics overseas, that have given unnatural looking results because of the quality of the service.
To get high-quality results and see the most natural results from your hair transplant, make sure you thoroughly research your clinic and surgeon. Read patient reviews and real world testimonials to get a well-rounded idea of the quality of service.
Making Sure You Have a Good Donor Area
It should be up to your surgeon to tell you whether your donor area is of good enough quality and to advise you within your consultation, on what results you can expect.
Make sure when you attend your consultation, that you ask questions about realistic goals and what you can expect given the condition of your donor area. Ask questions around the condition of the donor follicles and how well they can be expected to take when transplanted.
Your surgeon won’t be able to give you a definite answer on the exact results you can expect, but they will be able to tell you what your chances are of getting the final hairline you desire.
Aftercare and Styling
Aftercare is very important when trying to get the most natural result. Your new hair will be more delicate than you may be used to, so making sure you have the right products and don’t over-process the hair is very important.
Using gentle and organic shampoo and styling products are a great way to ensure you aren’t exposing your hair to damaging chemicals. They are also kinder on the scalp, which may be a little sensitive after your procedure.
