Dense packing hair transplant in Lahore is performed by Dr.Ahmad Chaudhry at Cosmoderma clinic. Patients of baldness can go for Dense Packing hair restoration which is slightly different from normal procedure. In this procedure, the hair follicles are placed closer together so that the final outcome is a dense growth on the head. So, more than 30 follicular units are placed in per square cm of the head area in a routine or an ordinary hair restoration surgery. In Dense Packing Hair Transplant, 50 follicular units are also grafted per square cm. As a result of this, the growth is thicker as hair is closer together and there are more hairs on the head.
Is Dense Packing Hair Transplant Better?
This debate has been going on for quite a while now. Some surgeons think that Dense Packing is better because the final result is much better in this case. On the other hand, some surgeons have said that 30 follicular units per square cm are quite okay for most patients. They argue that dense packing has lesser chance of successful grafts.
Poor Survival with Dense Packing procedure
In dense packing, there are chances of poor survival. It is likely that the growth will not be as expected. This is because in this case, grafts are thinner. Your surgeon has to cut the grafts thinner in order to be placed closer together. So, this can cause improper placement and poor thriving of the grafts in your scalp. A study was conducted in 2005 which showed the difference in survival rate between surgeries with 30 follicular units per square cm and 50FU per square cm. It was seen that when less grafts were done, the survival rate was 98.6% and in case of 50Fu per square cm, the survival rate dropped to 83%.
Who Can Get Dense Packing Hair Transplant?
If you want to get Dense Packing front hairline, it is important that you consult with your surgeon. He will advise you on whether you are the right candidate for the procedure. There are several factors that the surgeon keeps in consideration such as your age and the quality of existing hair. Other than that, he also has to see the amount of donor hair that is available. As you start to age, the chances of positive results on your head with dense packing decrease. Also, coarse and curly hair tends to have lower survival rate as compared to sleek and straight hair.
Hair Density after Dense Packing
The results of dense Packing hair transplant are different on everyone. The final density depends on the hair color and diameter of hair shaft. Also, texture of hair and skin color also has a role to play in the final outcome. Most surgeons hope to achieve higher density on the front region of your head because that is the most prominent part. For this, they use smaller instruments of up to 0.7 mm blades as thinner grafts are placed. Your surgeon would change the angle of the blade for your conditions. Lateral slits are made in the scalp, then hair is grafted there. This technique is available in Lahore and performed by an experienced hair restoration surgeon Dr.Ahmad Chaudhry.
