Short Hair After Hair Transplant Surgery
A common trend for male patients is the desire to wear their hair short after surgery. We have received many inquiries at our Sydney hair loss treatment clinic about whether its possible. The good news is that this can be achieved. The modern donor technique overlaps the donor area skin edges whilst stitching allows hair to grow back through the donor scar. This is called the trichophytic technique and almost always creates a great result that is almost undetectable, even with a very short number two haircut!
Some patients would like the ability to shave their head after the transplant. This is slightly unrealistic however, as no matter which technique is used for the hair transplant, all surgery creates scarring to a certain degree. The modern techniques that we currently use minimize the visibility in both the recipient hair area (the thinning/balding area) and the donor hair area. Our website has further information about Hair Transplant Surgery. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to visit our Sydney Hair Loss Clinic or call us on 1800 685 399.
