Restoring Your Crown with Hair Transplant
Have you heard about the thinning crown? It’s a term usually used to mention a certain stage of hair loss problem. It may refer to the top point of your head while in many cases, it indicates a larger balding area which represents severe hair loss problem. Hair growth of the crown is centrifugal where the hair grows in a spiral direction. It means the crown thinning will start from that area expanding to the surrounded area including temple and forehead.
It’s very important for a surgeon to identify your crown as it determines how the cosmetic procedure or crown hair transplant provides a natural look. It’s due to the fact that the crown is the center of diverse hair angles and directions. At this point, a reputable surgeon will identify how the crown hair transplant is conducted following your former crown to achieve a natural aesthetic. The skill and experience of the surgeon will determine how the result will be.
The surgeon uses the Norwood scale to classify hair loss pattern in your crown as well as the Ludwig presentation. Starting from Norwood Class IV, it can be ensured that the pattern baldness affects the crown. There are also cases where people experience the isolated bald spot where there is no baldness in anywhere of their head except in their crown.
The crown hair transplant is actually challenging due to technical and aesthetic difficulties. However, hair transplant is actually the only permanent solution to restore your crown. The surgeon should be able to manage a natural placement following the circular direction and angle as well as determine the correct graft size in each position of your crown. That’s why hair transplant can only be conducted by certified and experienced surgeons. Any procedure takes place outside the clinics or hospital may lead to poor appearance or even worse, health problems including infection.

In other hands, it’s also difficult to completely fulfill the hair demand of the crown with the existing donor hair. It’s possible that the donor area doesn’t have sufficient hair donor based on variants required by the balding crown. That’s why crown hair transplant conducted with FUT method may result in unsatisfying or less natural result due to the stripped technique which doesn’t allow the surgeon to select the hair follicles. In other hands, FUE method may provide a more natural and aesthetic result as the surgeon can selectively harvest the hair follicles from donor area one by one.
