Hair Transplantation in African Americans

 

Dr. Singh performs hair transplantation in African Americans routinely.

 

African American Men:

When surgically restoring hair in African American males, there are special technical considerations that need to be made. When performing the strip excision, special care needs to be taken to not only prevent keloids or hypertrophic scars but also when dissecting the follicular units to account for the curled hairs.

 

Alternatively, many African American men wear their hair very short in the back; thus, strip excision to harvest the hairs would leave a noticeable scar. Therefore, follicular unit extraction (FUE) is the best technique for harvesting the hairs. Dr. Singh has published an article in the Dermatology Surgery journal detailing a specific technique of FUE in African Americans.

 

African American Women:

Many African American women seek consultation for traction alopecia, which is hair loss along the hairline due to tight hairstyling practices. In these individuals, Dr. Singh will reinforce, re-thicken, and re-establish the hairline.
