BHHR Textured Hair Restoration Surgery
BHHR performs hair transplant surgeries on all types of hair. But, hair texture can make a considerable difference, when it factors into your personal hair restoration treatment plan. A number of variables are involved in an individual’s hair restoration goals and significantly play a role in what you can expect to achieve. These factors include:
- Extent and stage of hair loss.
- Size of the balding area being treated.
- Hair thickness (fine, medium, course).
- Character of your hair (straight vs. curly).
Textured hair restoration requires a more complexly precise procedure compared to straight hair. The structure of the hair follicle differs significantly from straight hair, and often takes on a spiral shape from the tip to root. In order to keep the structure completely intact, we must handle these hairs with extreme care, during the extracting and implanting procedure. Sometimes, textured hair can be difficult to transplant and match perfectly, but textured hair has advantages in terms of hair transplantation.
Textured hair restoration yields voluminous results, due to the nature of textured hair, which automatically gives the appearance of thicker, fuller follicles.
Once the hair follicle is implanted into the recipient area, eventually it will take on the same characteristics. A large number of textured hair restoration patients experienced long-term, natural looking results with textured hair restoration surgery. There are many variations of textured hair, which come in various types with multiple factors that in the end will determine the optimal hair restoration results. The experience and superior skills of BHHR surgeon will aid you in your quest for quality textured hair restoration results.

How Textured Hair Restoration Surgeries Work
Modern hair restoration surgery involves the use of hair follicles, placed in the bald region of the scalp. Those follicles are carefully harvested from a donor area from the back of the scalp. The individual hair follicles are placed in order to achieve a natural density and thickness to your own hair. The result -- a full head of natural-looking hair. Both follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT) techniques may be considered.
How Textured Hair Graft Density is Determined
Proper hair thickness and density are important to achieve, during the hair restoration process. Using microsurgical techniques, textures hair restoration experts such as Dr. Kahen are able to achieve the most realistic natural results possible.
The individual hair follicles are blended in seamlessly, making them indistinguishable from the original hair follicle. Dr. Kahen uses his expertise to consider the proper angle and the best placement of the follicle along the scalp. Staggering the placement of the donor's hair is important for creating a natural hairline and ensuring a properly covered scalp for appealing results.
How Long Before Transplanted Hair Thickens and Blends?
As patients recover from their hair restoration surgery, they may notice some issues with the thinness of the hair in the donor area -- a few months into growth. This is completely natural. Ultimately, the transplanted hair follicles need to go through a full growth cycle, following the surgery in order to achieve the final results. Patients should see the results of optimal hair growth by the end of a year. By that time, the hair follicles will have all gone through a full growth cycle, and be producing thicker and healthy hair.
Concerns About Hair Texture: Can Surgery Change It?
A number of patients have asked if the textured hair restoration surgery will really improve or change their hair texture. The answer is no. Hair restoration surgery will not alter hair texture, because Amino acid determined the makeup of your hair. Surgical procedures will not alter that in a noticeable fashion, enough to change the texture of the hair follicles. Yet, Dr. Kahen can discuss proper hair care and ways to improve the health of your hair, moving forward with textured hair restoration surgery. This gives patients greater control of their appearance and results.
