Ethnic hair restoration involves techniques specifically designed to effectively treat hair loss in patients of Asian, African-American, or Indian descent. These treatments are customized to maximize the individual outcomes for patients who have traits that are unique to their particular ethnic groups. Dr. Bernardino Arocha is an experienced hair restoration surgeon who utilizes some of the most advanced procedures available to replace lost hair with natural-looking results. During your initial hair restoration consultation, he will talk with you about your options and create a treatment plan that is custom-designed to meet your needs and goals.

Asian Hair Restoration

Asian Hair restorationPeople of Asian heritage generally have straighter, darker, and coarser hair when compared with Caucasian individuals. In many cases, the hair is less dense; however, its coarseness can create a fuller appearance. The unique nature of an Asian patient’s hair requires extraordinarily precise follicular placement during hair replacement surgery. Male patients typically prefer a hairline that is straight across and angled at nearly 90 degrees in the area of the temples.

Dr. Arocha has found that Follicular Unit Extraction is often a suitable option for Asian individuals who are appropriate candidates for that procedure.

African-American Hair Restoration

African-American Hair Restoration before and afterAfrican-Americans often have very curly hair, which can be very beneficial for hair transplantation. Although there is typically a lower density of follicular units in the area from which hair will be removed in order to transfer it to the regions of hair loss, the texture and curliness of the hair can ultimately enhance coverage and occupy a larger area of the scalp.

Advanced hair restoration surgery such as Follicular Unit Extraction, combined with the skills of our experienced hair replacement surgeon, can be very effective solutions for patients of African-American descent who are experiencing hair loss. There are unique features of the follicles that require experience and a specialized approach to donor harvesting in both FUT and FUE surgeries. However, employing these techniques results in equally good growth and, of course, results that are as natural as nature itself.

Indian Hair Restoration

Indian Hair Restoration before and after imageThick, dark, and straight hair is a common trait among individuals of Indian heritage. These are very favorable hair characteristics, and often yield fantastic results after hair restoration surgery; however, it is important to note that diets popular among many patients of Indian descent can cause them to have thin blood, which may lead to increased bleeding during and after the procedure. It is recommended that foods and spices such as onions, garlic, curry, and turmeric be avoided in order to improve blood coagulation.

Keloid Scarring

It is also important to advise patients of Asian, African-American, and Indian heritage who are considering hair transplant surgery that there is a small but increased risk of keloid scar formation among these particular ethnic groups; however, this is a very rare complication. During the initial consultation, Dr. Arocha will answer all of your questions and go over all of the risks and benefits of procedures being considered. Together, you and Dr. Arocha will decide on the treatment that is best for your needs.
