Am I a Candidate for Hair Transplant Surgery?

Hair transplantation is one of the most popular techniques for hair restoration. The approach behind the treatment is simple: by carefully transplanting hair follicles from fuller areas of the head, natural hair can be restored to the hairline, the crown or other areas of the head where hair thinning is occurring. For many patients, this is the ideal hair restoration solution. But are you a good candidate?

Are you experiencing hair thinning or hair loss?

If you are experiencing thinning hair or balding, you may be a good candidate for hair transplant surgery. The purpose of hair transplantation is to move healthy hair follicles to the areas that are being affected by hair loss. So, patients who are beginning to experience the early signs of hair thinning and hair loss – particularly in the crown and along the hairline – are often good candidates for a hair transplant.

Are you in good health?

As a surgical procedure, hair transplant surgery requires that patients be in good health to receive treatment. Being a healthy candidate requires that patients meet certain qualifications in terms of their lifestyle and health conditions. For example, smoking and alcohol consumption can complicate your treatment, and could make you inelibigle for treatment. Furthermore, we may ask that you abstain from using certain medications around the time of your hair transplant surgery.

Are you committed to post-treatment care?

While the hair transplant surgery itself is the essential component of achieving results, there are still special requirements throughout the healing process. You will have to take care when cleansing the scalp and your hair, which may come with an adjustment to hygiene habits, lifestyle habits and other routines. In order to be a good candidate and enjoy a successful treatment, you need to be able to commit to these requirements prior to treatment.

Do you have realistic expectations?

Hair transplant surgery can be incredibly effective, and for many patients, produces life-changing results. However, this treatment is not a perfect overnight solution. It is important that you discuss your goals with your doctor and ensure that you fully understand the possibilities of what hair transplant treatment can do for you.
