Excellent results can be achieved for African American patients. Since the hair can be so curly, certain techniques are used to prepare and transplant the grafts. African American Hair Follicles are curved under the skin and require slightly larger grafts. Additional testing is performed to check for the possibility of keloidal scarring. And fortunately, even in those with a history of forming them, keloid scarring rarely occurs in the scalp with proper surgical technique.If you have any questions about African American hair transplants, as well as follicular units, hair replacement, or anything else, please contact us.
