Hair transplants are a viable solution for many people regardless of their ethnicity, however African American clients may need special understanding of their particular hair growth features to achieve the best results.
The hair follicles of African American patients are curved below the surface of the scalp, requiring slightly larger grafts. Tests prior to surgery will also determine the possibility for keloidal scarring following surgery.
American patients achieve the best hair transplant outcomes from follicular unit micrografts, placed with special techniques to protect the base of the hair follicles. These techniques also help avoid keloidal scarring, even among patients who have a history of such scarring.
