Hello Dr. Rassman (and contributing doctors),
I have a question that I believe is something most of your readers might wonder:
For us hopeless (hair) romantics, what would you say is the best possible scenario for someone undergoing a HT procedure? Put another way, is it possible for someone with limited (or even moderate) balding to realistically expect to repair their hair loss to the point of zero detectability? …Hypothetically of course
Absolutely! Non-detection for a hair transplant is a reality on most patients who get them, provided that the densities are brought up to enough of a level to produce the fullness that normal densities will have. Without knowing more about your hair loss pattern, hair characteristics, color, skin, etc, it would be difficult to give you realistic expectations. If you visit me in my office in Los Angeles, I’ve got plenty of patients (and some on my staff) that have the type of transplant which is completely undetectable. I mean, who wants their hair to look transplanted? Nobody! As I always say, seeing is believing and our Open House events show this on many of the patient models who visit us from time to time.
