Hair restoration surgery is worth doing only if the naturalness of hair distribution is preserved.
Among other factors, the “placement of appropriate size grafts” is a key factor for creating a natural look to the hairline.
In general, a hair graft may contain one hair/ two hairs/ three or more hairs. A single follicle hair grafts in front plays a significant role in the creation of a natural hairline. It softens the hairline margins and thus mimics as a non-transplant hairline pattern.
On the other hand, a Multi follicle unit graft retains more than one hair which creates a visual heaviness. It is easily noticeable if placed in the front part of hairline
Here are a few cases where you may find unnatural results just by observing the front of hairline.
(1) As it is easily noticed he has multi follicle unit grafts in front which creates heaviness and unnatural appearance. Also, hairline achieved is straight. Both these factors together give this patient an un-natural looking hairline.
(2) Similar to other patient, he received double and more follicular grafts along with “straight looking” appearance of hair line.
A good hair restoration surgeon will correct this by removing multi-unit grafts from your transplanted hair line. The process is very less time consuming and highly effective.
