Hair transplant on crown area of head: is it viable?
Maybe you are already looking for the hair transplant cost in Mexico, but still do not know if the procedure will be successful in your type of hair loss. Crown hair loss, accompanied by receding hair, is the most common type of baldness in men, but it can also occur in women. Thinning of the hair on the crown will eventually lead to baldness in this area. But is the hair transplant viable in the crown area of head?
Causes of hair loss at the crown of head
In 95% of men’s cases, baldness on the crown is due to genetics. In the case of women, it is usually caused in part by a hormonal disorder and also by genetics, although hair loss is usually more dispersed than in men.
Some of the causes of hair loss in this area are:
- Alopecia areata
- Anagen hair loss
- Scarring alopecia
- Disorders of hair growth
- Inflammatory scalp
- Telogen hair loss
- Traction alopecia
Depending on the type of hair loss and the progress of hair loss, drug treatment or surgical procedure may be considered. It is important to note that the transplant must be performed by an expert to ensure safe and successful treatment.
How do you know that hair transplantation is the best option?
Having a hair restoration procedure is not a decision that should be made lightly and without information, so several factors need to be considered, including:
- Degree of hair loss.
- If there is a possibility that the scalp will self-regulate and hair loss will decrease naturally.
- The ability to create natural looking hair patterns in the crown area.
Crown Transplant Technique
To get the best results during hair transplantation in the crown area, technical skill and artistic vision are required to give the transplant a natural appearance and texture, avoiding at all costs an artificial appearance.
The procedure of this type of transplant consists of extracting capillary roots from the donor site from the back of the scalp, using the method of extracting follicular units, also known as FUE. The extracted follicles are placed precisely in the receiving area, which is the one that presents thinning hair or baldness.
Implants are performed under enlarged vision, so that the existing follicles are not damaged, resulting in a crown full of hair distributed at perfect angles, direction, pattern and, in addition, with graft-to-site adjustment.
Recovery of crown area hair transplant
The recovery process is generally similar to that of other types of hair transplant procedures. That is, the patient usually recovers in just 24 hours from the process, being able to resume most of his daily activities the day after the transplant, but it is recommended to avoid strenuous activities for a week.
While some people often return to work the next day, many people choose to take a few days off. This will depend on each case, as there will be some small crusts on the transplanted area for up to 2 weeks, which will eventually fall off.
You can wear a sports cap after the procedure to hide visible scabs. And, although no stitches or bandages are required and you can wash your hair with shampoo yourself following the doctor’s instructions, recovering in a heavenly place like Cancun is an unforgettable experience.
