In countries all over the World we have different ethnicities meaning that there is an existence of people belonging to different social groups that have a common national or cultural tradition. Just like how our culture and geographical area may be different, our hair quality of different as well.
We have patients coming from Latin America, the Middle East and Asia, North America, Europe and Canada, there is surely a clear difference in the hair quality of all our patients.
At our clinic we generally perform one common procedure which is hair grafting, this is a process in which hair is transplanted from the back or sides of the head into areas of hair loss, most commonly the frontal and mid scalp and crown regions, but sometimes, into other areas, including the beard and eyebrows.
In addition to these hair transplants, we perform several other procedures, including hairline lowering surgery surgical hairline advancement, in which the hairline is advanced and the forehead shortened, and the repair of previous plastic surgery procedures. With these procedures, ethnic considerations affect not only technique and patient candidacy but also the results.
When it comes to hair transplant, it is not rational to show the same approach to every hair type. Each type of hair requires its own approach due to the differing nature of various hair types; particularly Afro-textured hair type. Hair loss is very common in the African community, and it can be a sensitive subject for people who are losing hair in their early 20s.
Through the years human hair has been categorized into 3 ethnic groups according to distinguishable characteristics:
These ethnic groupings show distinct characteristics in hair density, diameter, shape, mechanical properties, and composition.
In Africans, the upper skin that surrounds the hair follicle externally is thicker and tighter compared to other ethnic groups. This may cause damage to the hair follicles, rupture and thus graft damage during extraction. For successful results, the surgery should be performed by an experienced hair transplantation specialist and a professional team.
This structural characteristic in white hair allows the grafts to be collected more easily, helping reduce the likelihood of damage to hair follicles and the risk of transection reduced to a minimum.
