I am scheduled to go in for a consultation in two weeks for getting a procedure done. What I wanted to know, I have wavy hair but when it is short its not wavy. However, the wavy hair starts to come out on the top and front of my head first then the donor area follows a few week after. Wouldn’t that be a problem if I get a transplant b/c I will have straight hair in certain areas and then wavy hair?
Are most clinics required to develop a long term plan for future hair loss for a patient, and are they required to use devices to measure miniturization on the scalp for a patient?
You should always start off with a Master Plan, created by you and your doctor based upon his findings during your examination. If you have wavy hair in the donor area it will grow out as wavy hair in the transplanted area.
There are no requirements to measure miniaturization. It is something I stress in my practice and on this site, but many doctors do not do this, nor do they measure bulk of the hair in the various parts of the scalp in the initial examination.
