How Hair Replacement In London Has Become The Force It Is Today

Mar 26, 2008
The latest technology and techniques utilised by the modern hair replacement surgeons are much more effective that those used by people that were practicing this form of surgery fifty years ago. The level of sophistication has increased a great deal in this relatively short time period and the results that can be achieved with this type of surgery are now, finally, reaching levels that are not noticeable to the naked eye.

This is obviously a great improvement for people that want to utilise this type of surgery as in the past some people received entirely unsatisfactorily poor results and were forced to live not only with the perceived embarrassment of experiencing hair loss but also with the embarrassment of poorly conducted surgery blazoned across their heads. People came off the surgeons table with unsightly clumps of hair positioned strategically across their heads. These unsightly results became known as 'corn rows' in recognition of the similar appearance of cultivated corn fields.

In London there are numerous surgeons that perform hair replacement surgery. These surgeons have developed their techniques with the aim of providing the best service to their customers. The modern day hair transplant surgeon is able to extract, transport and replant hairs in groups of four hair follicles - as they grow naturally in nature. This means that the surgeon can go to an area of the head where hair grows well and extract a tiny group of hairs for use elsewhere. This means that the donor site (where the hair is taken from) does not experience serious loss of hair and as a result the area where it is taken from does not look any worse off after the hair has been taken.

The surgeon can carefully select donor hair from dense areas of growth and make sure that he does not leave any severe patches or spaces in the donor area and subsequently replants them carefully in the thinner areas of the head. This can be done in such a way that it emulates real, natural growth and as a result the results that these surgeons achieve have been very effective. And after all the natural look is what people that undertake this surgery are after.

This was not always the case. Early examples of this surgery began in the 19th century when surgeons pioneered the use of skin grafts or, more particularly, scalp grafts and took them from areas that had dense hair and attached them to areas that lacked hair. The main use of this early technology was to transplant hair for eyebrows. Natural baldness was not really an issue that surgeons thought about addressing. Surgeons did however begin to treat baldness that occurred unnaturally. The Second World War prevented any meaningful advances from occurring.

But this gives us an indication of how recent all of the developments in the industry have taken place. It is conceivable that there are people alive that are walking around with some of this early restoration surgery. So bearing in mind that we are only a lifetime away from when the surgery was first developed the techniques have reached a phenomenal level of sophistication over a very short period of time. The techniques are also constantly improving and as a result the more experienced the surgeon and the better he or she is at keeping up to the date with the latest developments the better the level of treatment you receive will be.
