In certain respects between African American patients and Caucasian patients, there is a difference in hair transplantation.  Just as the rest of the patients from races of other kinds African Americans also can take advantage of the benefits of hair transplant.

It does not matter from which race you are, one thing is certain and that is the procedure of surgery for restoring hair is the same for all races and as successful and effective as well as declared by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. Regardless of which background the patient comes from ethnically, there could be just a few variations in hair transplantation from one patient to another.

The scar is minimal since the donor site is closed with sutures in a very thin line. The donor scalp that is taken is separated into a number of plugs or grafts and transplantation is done in the receiver's bald area on the scalp.

What is the result after the hair transplantation process? The hair that has been transplanted starts shedding once the hair transplant is done. Hair growth is seen after about sixty days after the hair transplantation procedure is done. The hair starts attaining an appearance that is natural after about six months.

Benefits of Hair Transplantation

After this, the growth of hair remains quite steady. African Americans can enjoy lots of benefits of hair transplantation.  Since the hair is curly, it appears thick and dense. A patient who is a Caucasian and suffering from hair loss is not able to take advantage of this as compared to hair transplantation in African Americans suffering from advanced loss of hair.

In other ethnic groups, lots of donor hair is needed in a surgery for hair restoration in comparison to hair restoration in African Americans. It is the thick and curly texture of hair in African American individuals that proves to be very advantageous. However there are certain disadvantages to hair transplantation in people who are African American.

Complications Experienced
