Medical Consultations via the Internet
Obtaining medical Consultations via the internet regarding the number of follicles to planted
Hair fall and baldness are the most two common problems that most men suffer from and worry about. As soon as a person sees that the amount of hair residing on the comb has increased over the usual amount, the phobia of hair loss starts to haunt them every time they stood in front of the mirror. You find them running to drug stores, doctors, and sometimes barbers to find a cure. When hope is lost to find a medication all eyes turns to the hair transplant procedure. Patients usually head to the internet in order to calculate the number of follicles they need and the consultations about the needed numbers start all via the internet.
Sending Photos to Get an Estimated Number of Grafts to be Planted
As soon as a patient visits one of the websites for specialized doctors in the field of hair transplant the first question they look for an answer to is: what is the number of follicles needed for a hair transplant?
Without sending pictures neither the doctor nor the mediator would be able to examine the case, calculate follicles or even to decide whether the case is operable or not.
Even after sending pictures to the doctor the final diagnosis is not going to be as exact as it is when the patient visits the clinic in person and make a face to face interview with the doctor. Hence calculating the number of follicles through pictures is only a guess.
Pictures do not Show What is under the Skin
As said earlier the pictures that are sent to the doctor or to the mediator help in making only a guess about the needed number of follicles, these numbers are not accurate. So the diagnosis is an initial one made according to what the pictures show. The exact number of follicles to be planted is determined in the advisory session with the doctor and after a thorough medical examination for the scalp using all the necessary tools. Patients are asked to send the pictures in order to determine which case is operable and which case is not.
The Thicker the Hair the Better
The nature of human hair differs from one person to another, some have straight hair some have curly hair, others may have thick hair others may have it thin. But what role do hair quality and type plays when it comes to the number of follicles and the density of the transplant?
Usually the doctor chooses the healthy grafts that contain 2-4 hairs in one root; generally speaking the thicker the hair; the better the density using a smaller number of follicles which also reduces the lost numbers of roots in the donor site.
Degrees of Baldness and the Qualified Cases for Hair Transplant:
After the doctor takes the medical condition for the patient under consideration along with making sure that the patient is physically fit to go under the hair transplant procedure and confirming that he/she doesn’t suffer from any chronic diseases or any other diseases that may have negative effects on the hair transplantation, here comes the expected results of the hair transplant procedure and of course with regards to the degree of baldness the patient suffers from.
Here are the seven degrees of baldness:
First degree: the possibility of 100% coverage of the bald area.
Second degree: the possibility of 100% coverage of the bald area.
Third degree: the possibility of 100% coverage of the bald area.
Fourth degree: the possibility of 100% coverage of the bald area.
Fifth degree: the possibility of 100% coverage of the frontal area, 30% coverage of the back area with the possibility of covering the remaining area while combing the hair.
Sixth degree: the possibility of only 60% coverage. Not recommended.
Seventh degree: the procedure is not recommended and the patient should accept this reality with hopes for progress in the field of hair cloning.
