At Salameh Plastic Surgery and Hair Transplant, we get a lot of potential clients that are interested in undergoing a hair transplant, but are worried that the shade or texture of their hair might not be ideal for the procedure. That’s why we’ve made this handy list of what kinds of hair our ARTAS device is capable of delivering transplants with.

Dispelling Some Myths

First off, it’s important to point out that some people might be under the impression that having fair colored or thinly textured hair will put you at greater risk for showing transplant scars. Nothing could be further from the truth: your natural hair has very little to do with how successful your hair transplant will be. It’s mostly down to the skill of the surgeon and the quality of the technology they’re using, and when you’re working with a system like ARTAS, hair of all kinds is essentially at the beck and call of you and your surgeon!

The Long and Short of It

When it comes to the different hair types that work best for a hair transplant, the length and style of your hair will have more to do with how it adapts to your body than its natural shape and color. While the ARTAS hair transplant system already leaves relatively few scars and blemishes to begin with, those marks will likely be more noticeable if you wear your hair in a buzzcut than if you let it grow a bit longer and looser, for just one example. That said, one of the great things about getting a hair transplant is that it tends to grow out to be as thick and full as it was when you were younger, so you should have no issue trying a different hairstyle if the first one you pick isn’t to your taste.
