Hair transplant on the crown is a difficult hair transplantation procedure in terms of both technical and success rates. The thickness of the scalp in the crown region is higher than the other regions, and it’s also a region with less blood supply. In the area with less blood supply, the growth rate of the transplanted hair usually decreases. Well, how is a hair transplant on the crown performed when these negativities exist?
How Does A Hair Transplant on the Crown Performed?
The first stage of a hair transplant on the crown procedure is anesthesia to the transplantation area. Anesthesia application is the same as traditional hair transplantation.
The second stage is the process of opening the channels and placing the hair follicles. This phase can be done as the classical FUE and DHI methods. Many patients prefer hair transplantation with the pencil method. This is the most essential part of the process, whether the DHI method or the classical method.
Crown hair has its unique angles and directions. Even this differs from person to person. If the channel is opened and planted without paying attention to these angle and direction rules, unnatural bad results may occur.
Opening angles should never be proper. Ideally, angles should be 20-25 degrees. The directions of the front and middle regions of the crown region should be forward. If the crown area of the person had completely spilled, the existing hair gives us an idea about the directions. The planting process should be done in parallel to their hair.
If planting is to be done in the lower and lower parts of the vertex, the patient should lie face down in the graft retrieval position. The reason for this is that the direction of the hair follicles in this region should face down. Angle determination can be made very easily in this position.
