Hair loss issues affect both men and women of all ages. Hair loss can be attributed to illnesses, genetics, stress, aging, and even psychological issues. However, it occurs, losing hair can leave a person feeling self-conscious and unhappy with the way they look. For this reason, many people seek professional help to restore their hair. There are many choices when it comes to hair loss treatment. However, one of the most effective ones is hair transplant surgery.
So, how do you know if you are a good candidate for hair transplant surgery? There are many factors in play.
First, you must deal with the cause of your hair loss. For example, if your hair loss is caused by stress or trauma, you need to have that issue handled. If your hair loss is caused by a specific medicine you are taking for an illness, you need to stop taking it to stop further hair loss. If you have a medical condition that is responsible for your hair loss, it needs to be addressed and gotten under control. Once this is done, you can proceed to hair transplant surgery. Otherwise, even after surgery, you will continue to lose hair.
Second, you need to have healthy hair follicles available on other parts of your scalp. Hair transplant surgery requires donor hair to be taken from other parts of your head. If you are completely hairless on your scalp, you may not be a good candidate for hair transplant surgery. Additionally, if your hair quality is poor, you may not qualify. Talk to a hair transplant surgeon to get an assessment on whether you have healthy donor hair and can consider hair transplant surgery as a treatment option.
Another factor that plays a role in whether you are a good candidate for hair transplant surgery is your end goal. Do you want extremely thick hair in the front of your head or do you want to simply fix a receding hairline? Depending on your goal, your treatment options may change. Some people want a thicker appearance while others want hair sparsely spread across the scalp. Your goal, combined with the amount of donor’s hair you have available, can determine if you are a good candidate for hair transplant surgery. You may or may not be able to achieve the look you want with hair transplant surgery. Therefore, talk to a hair transplant surgeon about your goals and what is the best way to achieve them.
