View Full Version : graft direction

how a surgeon chooses the direction of a graft around our spirals and at the temple closings?..
i saw a body hair transplant where the direction of the grafts is somehow weird
take a look at the back of the head, is this just styling? shouldnt these grafts back there be aligned to point downwards? http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb401/dermhair/bodyhairtransplant6a.jpg

Traditionally, the whorl pattern is closer to the middle of the crown, maybe slightly off center to one side. Sometimes it is higher toward the vertex. This crown looks like there is not a whorl pattern but the beginnings of one were begun at the very bottom right of the balding area. The rotation looks to have been cut short as the direction moves up the crown so that the hair can be brushed up and forward toward the vertex for what could be described as a vertical comb over, or comb "up".
