Will My Hair Transplant Results Look Natural and Realistic?
One of the major concerns of both men and women who are considering hair transplant surgery is whether the results will look natural. It is a legitimate concern, especially since surgical procedures that were popular in years past – such as “hair plugs” – did not always give patients the most satisfactory results. The good news is, state-of-the-art techniques that have been developed over the years have advanced the field of hair restoration to extraordinary new levels. With the skill and experience of our hair transplant surgeon, combined with some of the latest technologies, the results of hair restoration surgery can look so natural that it may appear as though you never lost your hair at all.
Older hair transplant techniques often removed large strips (grafts) of skin with healthy hair follicles from the back or sides of the head and relocated them to the areas of baldness and thinning hair. Because these strips had a high amount of individual hairs attached to them, outcomes could look less natural. With advanced techniques such as Follicular Unit Transplantation, you can remove much smaller hair grafts that contain as few as one to four follicles, leading to a more natural-looking result. The process essentially has become much more meticulous and precise, which can make the effects more realistic when performed by a skilled surgeon.
Going even further, recent years have seen the rise in popularity of hair transplant techniques such as Follicular Unit Extraction and the ARTAS® Robotic System. These hair restoration methods can remove individual hairs right from the donor site in a much less invasive way, minimizing the healing process as well as residual scarring in the donor area. The results can look exceptionally natural and patients can often wear their hair short because any scarring from the procedure should be barely noticeable.

With procedures that are customized to each patient’s needs and the level of care and precision applied by our hair transplant surgeon, the entire team here at Arocha Hair Restoration works together to provide patients with natural-looking outcomes and results that exceed expectations.
