FAQs For Crown Hair Transplant
The crown is the posterior part of the scalp. It is one of the most affected areas in terms of hair loss. However, with the help of crown hair transplant baldness and hair loss in the crown region can be treated. Usually, experts recommend about 800 to 1200 healthy grafts for crown hair transplant. It is important to keep this number minimal because there is only a limited number of grafts available in one individual. In a crown hair transplant, the density means a balanced distribution of grafts across the crown. When grafts are transplanted carefully, they provide the maximum density and aesthetic appeal. Moreover, it's important to use grafts efficiently because they are finite.

The procedure is similar to a typical hair transplant. The treatment can be divided into different steps but these steps can be different for different hair transplant techniques such as follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT).
According to WebMD, the procedure can take four to eight hours to finish. Let’s see how FUE hair transplant is normally performed:
Step 1 – Donor Area Preparation: The professional will clean the donor area before shaving it. Now local anesthesia will be administered to avoid pain and discomfort during the procedure.
Step 2 – Hair Graft Extraction: Now the actual treatment will start and the surgeon will extract hair grafts from the donor area to start the procedure. Unlike FUT, a strip of hair is not removed.
Step 3 – Hair Grafts Preparation: Now hair grafts that were extracted in the previous step, will be prepared to enable them to be inserted into the destination area.
Step 4 – Recipient Site Preparation: It is now time to prepare the site that needs to regrow hair. The surgeon will first administer local anesthesia (to numb the area) and then make tiny incisions.
Step 5 – Hair Graft Transplantation: In the last step, the surgeon will insert hair grafts in tiny incision made at the crown area or any other recipient site. Now doctor concludes the treatment.
