Who is a Good Candidate for Hair Transplant?
Although the suitability for hair transplantation varies from person to person, there are some general rules that must be followed carefully. Compliance with these rules is the key to a healthy and successful hair transplant.
The main requirement for hair transplantation is the availability of sufficient number and frequency of hair in the donor area and the suitability of the opening in the area where hair loss is experienced. It is possible to have a successful hair transplant operation for almost anyone who meets this basic requirement.
The fact that the hair in the donor area is sparse or the area to be transplanted is too large compared to the donor area reduces the success rate in hair transplantation. Because the hair transplant operation is based on replacing existing hair. In the hair transplant operation, no new hair is added to the head.
According to researchs, two-thirds of men face hair loss problem until the age of 35. Baldness problem, called premature hair loss, can begin at the age of 18. The hairline continues to form between the ages of 18 and 29.
Before the hair transplant operation, the clinic and patient relationship should be built on honesty and realistic expectations. If you are considering to have a hair transplant operation, you should have realistic expectations regarding hairline alignment, number of grafts, coverage percentage and density. During your consultation the hair transplant clinic should provide you with an honest assessment to avoid excessive extraction in donor area and its limitations for an accurate treatment plan.
