I read your post on Aug 13, 2014 on how Asian men have low density of hair. How successful is hair transplant in Asian men who have low density of hair?
Asian men usually have dark black hair on fair skin giving them a high contrast that makes thinning stand out. Their hair is also straight and not wavy which does not cover the thinning as well. These factors are not as favorable when compared to blond, wavy hair on fair skin or dark curly hair on dark skin. Med with fine hair require more hair than men with medium of coarse hair. Asian men don’t have the high hair density of Caucasian males.
However, we work with what we have and we have great results. It is more about managing expectations and individual goals. The following photos are of a Norwood 3a/ 4a patient who was in his early 20’s who looked like he was in his late 30’s with his hair loss pattern. While he may not have the full density, his styling and 1700 grafts provided a permanent front hair line and a new frame to his face. He looks his age.
