African American Hair Transplant at the Scandinavian Hair Institute

Knowledge. Compassion. Experience.

What is African American Hair Transplant?

African American hair transplant is a type of hair restoration procedure that is specifically designed to cater to the unique hair characteristics of people with different ethnic backgrounds. The experienced surgeons of the Scandinavian Hair Institute tailor each procedure to meet the hair restoration needs of individuals with thick, coiled, or tightly curled hair types, such as people of African, Latino, or Asian descent.

The hair transplant procedure involves the transfer of hair follicles from a donor area, typically from the back or sides of the head, to a recipient area. A skilled surgeon knows how to ensure that the transplanted hair follicles match the texture, curl pattern, and density of hair in the recipient area to provide authentic-looking results. Ethnic hair transplant requires a highly skilled and experienced surgeon who has expertise in working with various hair textures and types. The success of the procedure largely depends on your surgeon's ability to create a natural-looking hairline that complements your facial features and hair characteristics. We take the time to understand your unique needs and goals in order to deliver results you will love.

Your African American Hair Transplant Procedure

Your surgeon will evaluate your hair’s characteristics, facial features, and desired outcome to determine the best treatment plan for your African American Hair Transplant. Your input will be a vital part of this process. On the day of your procedure, the donor site and treatment area will be thoroughly numbed for your comfort. Then, your surgeon uses a specialized tool to remove hair follicles for transplant, most often from the back of the scalp, where hair growth is denser.

Additional Reading

Follicles may either be removed individually using a method called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or in a small strip in a process called Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) tailored for African American Hair Transplant. Extracted hair follicles are prepared for transplantation by separating them into individual grafts. Your surgeon makes small incisions in the recipient area of the scalp, and each graft is carefully placed into the recipient site, ensuring that the transplanted hair follicles match the texture, curl pattern, and density of your natural hair.
