The crown, also known as the vertex, is an area of the scalp that can begin losing hair in isolation or in conjunction with other areas of the scalp. Procedures involving the crown are some of the most technically demanding hair restorative procedures. This is due mostly to the various angles the hair grows from in this region. Recreating the natural angles of the crown requires the meticulous hand and creative eye of an experienced hair transplant surgeon like Dr. Scott Darling.

Crown Hair Transplant Procedure
There are a few basic facts about crown hair restoration that every individual should know before contemplating having a crown hair replacement procedure. These include the following:
The crown region continues to recede over time. This is especially problematic for those experiencing male pattern baldness. This means that additional hair restoration sessions may be required in the future to cover additional balding that may occur in this area.
Due to the complexity of the crown region, two sessions may be required depending on the extent of the baldness.
Someone contemplating crown hair restoration is advised to be on medical management (finasteride and/or minoxidil) to retard further hair loss in the crown area and minimize the need for further transplant sessions in the future.
