The Importance of Expert Design in a Hair Transplant

Dr. Amir Yazdan consulting Coutness Vaugn on The Doctors TV Show

It would not be an exaggeration to say that the success of a hair transplant procedure depends essentially on the artistic ability of the operating physician. By artistic ability we mean a careful eye married to a flawless surgical hand. Like a world-renowned painter or sculptor, a world-renowned hair restoration surgeon has a picturesque vision, fine instrumentation, and a masterful guiding hand.
Hair transplantation is an intensely delicate, laborious, and intricate affair, and as with any complex cosmetic procedure, transplantation of hair follicles is as much an exercise in aesthetic sense and design capability as it is in surgical skill.
Why highlight and stress the design aspect of hair transplantation? Because extraction of the hair follicles is only a small part of the job. The truly difficult part of the procedure – the part that distinguishes masters from merely competent practitioners – comes when the physician must assess hairline shape, angling, grouping design, and other key elements to finally design a totally dense and natural looking hairline.
The results from FUE and FUT hair transplantation procedures performed by board-certified physician Dr. Amir Yazdan always mimics the patient’s original hair growth pattern and natural hairline structure.
Dr. Yazdan’s Unique FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Method:

  • Micro incisions 0.8mm (Most clinics use 1.2mm)
  • Accurate Depth Control
  • Graft Survival Rate up to 99%
  • Gentle Graft Extraction
  • Recipient sites created with natural hair line design by Dr. Yazdan

It’s paramount to keep in mind that hair restoration is a medical ‘art’. Medical art combines medical knowledge, mastery of advanced surgical skills, as well as a keen eye enabling the accurate reproduction of what occurs naturally. Many consumers falsely assume that artistic ability is simply a given resulting from education and practice of established surgical techniques. Art and surgery are separate skills, and this must be taken into consideration when evaluating a doctor for your hair restoration surgery.
As you continue on your hair transplant journey, know what to look for and what questions to ask. Your hair, your appearance and your confidence deserve to be in the most capable of surgical hands.
