The say­ing “less is more” is true for some things, but not when it comes to your hair. When you decide to get hair trans­plant surgery, your main goal is to achieve a full head of hair. One ques­tion we often get asked by our patients dur­ing their con­sul­ta­tion is “Will the hair restora­tion surgery change the tex­ture of my hair?”

The answer to this ques­tion is: it depends. The donor hair on the back of the scalp is a great indi­ca­tion of what the hair growth will look like in the recip­i­ent area a few months after the pro­ce­dure. So gen­er­ally, the tex­ture will be like that of the donor hair. So, the tex­ture of your hair won’t change much from what you already have, since the trans­planted hairs are from your own scalp.

What will change is the den­sity of the hair in the bald­ing area — and peo­ple some­times get this con­fused with the tex­ture. Den­sity is extremely impor­tant in a hair trans­plant pro­ce­dure. If you ever look at a full head of hair, you’ll notice that you can’t see through the hair. The hair is very dense — this is the desired look in a hair trans­plant surgery in order to achieve nat­ural results. Den­sity is crucial.

Tech­ni­cally, a hair trans­plant pro­ce­dure will not change the tex­ture of your hair. Den­sity will make it much fuller and insure an unde­tectable hair trans­plant. So when you do go in for a con­sul­ta­tion, whether it’s at our Los Ange­les hair trans­plant clinic or any­where, make cer­tain that you ask about hair texture.
