What is Small Hair Transplant?

What is a small hair transplant? Does a mini hair transplant session produce good results? What should you do to ensure mini hair transplant results turn out to be good? Is it a good solution for baldness?

In this educational video, noted dermatologist & trichologist and one of the Best Hair Transplant Surgeons in Hyderabad Dr John Watts sheds light on mini hair transplants and who are eligible to get them done.

Surely, a small hair transplant is not suggested for all hair transplant patients as their effectiveness is limited to certain conditions only.

What is Small Hair Transplant

In his introductory note, Dr John Watts says that any hair transplant that uses hair grafts below 1000 can be classified in the category of Small Hair Transplant. 

“A Small Hair Transplant comes with a limited scope as it cannot meet the requirement of hair transplant patients with a large patch of baldness or those whose baldness is DHT influenced,” says Dr John Watts.

The people who qualify to undergo a Small Hair Transplant are those needing to cover a small patch of the bald spot without a family history of baldness or DHT influenced baldness. 

“For instance, if someone wants to lower the hairline a bit or cover their wide forehead or improve the sides, Small Hair Transplant can be recommended for such people,” adds Dr John Watts.

He warned that those facing an advanced stage of baldness should never opt for a small hair transplant. Such a step may result in disastrous consequences for those under the grip of DHT influenced hair loss or those with a family history of baldness, requiring to undergo a second hair transplant later on if the small hair transplant does not work.

Who Else May Need Small Hair Transplant?

Listing out others who may fit the criteria to undergo a Small Hair Transplant includes those who might have suffered from acid attacks or burn injuries resulting in the loss of a small patch of hair. It could be facial hair like a moustache or eyebrows. “Such people can benefit greatly from Small Hair Transplant procedure,” informs Dr John Watts.

A small Hair Transplant is also suggested for those facing hair loss on a small patch or area due to traction alopecia.

 “This condition may affect both males and females. Males, especially those in the Sikh community, tie their hair tight. This condition may also affect those women who keep a tight braid, leading to hair loss due to traction alopecia,” informed Dr John Watts.

How can you get better results?

Those desirous of achieving optimum results with a small hair transplant procedure need to ensure they do not cause any external injury to the hair grafts during the first 5-10 days of the procedure.

“The patients also need to strictly follow the instructions and advice of their hair transplant surgeon for good results,” suggested Dr John Watts, who has performed over 1900+ hair transplant surgeries successfully.
