Right Candidates for the Hair Transplant:

  • Does Age Matter?

If you want to get a hair transplant then it’s not really about the patient’s age but the stage of hair loss, development and maturity of hair.

It’s possible for young people to get a hair transplant under the age of 18. But there are many complications. There’s an ambiguity that how the hair loss, baldness is going to evolve so it’s very difficult to predict the severity of the patient’s future hair loss.

  • Hairline:

Another important issue is about the expectations of the hairline. The younger patient usually wants a lower hairline like a child.  But younger patients are not the right candidates. And lower hairline isn’t suitable for a more mature person.

The recommended, suggested age to get a hair transplant is over 30 because until that age the pattern of hair loss is visible.

  • Does Gender matters?

Hair loss in men is different as compared to hair loss in women. Women have a diffused hair thinning throughout the whole scalp, while men mostly have limited, isolated areas of thinning. So both genders can get a hair transplant.

  • Conditions of Hair loss:

Those who have a pattern of baldness, decline of hairline or low hairline and a donor area that is not affected by androgenetic alopecia, are the good candidates to get the hair transplant.

Patients who want to get a transplant, shouldn’t have an alopecia areata. Because of their unpredictable condition of their scalp because one never knows the level, stage of the future hair loss.

  • Do you have enough donor hair?

People having a stable supply of donor hair are the right candidates to get a hair transplant.

Every person’s hair thickness is different. The amount of hair for the hair transplantation is restricted due to the amount, the number of hair you already exist at the back or sides of the scalp in the donor area.

If you have denser hair, then you are easily able to get more hair from your donor regions for the hair transplantation.  And the goal of the better coverage of the bald areas will be achieved easily.

Before the procedure, the surgeon will carefully examine your scalp, to find out whether your hair donor sites can cover the bald areas or not.

  • Tight/ loose Scalp?

The looser the scalp, the more donor hairs can be extracted from the donor area, from the back side or from both sides of the head. And then implanted in the recipient areas, where the treatment is required. Then there will be minor chances of scarring.

A patient with a tight scalp may not be a right candidate to get a hair transplant because it may result in a painful experience.

  • Health:

A hair transplant patient should be healthy enough to undergo the procedure.

Wrong candidates may suffer from:

If you are not a right candidate then you may suffer from many uncomfortable situations like:

  • Numbness
  • Excessive pain
  • Thinning of the pre-existed hair
  • Excessive bleeding

  • Swelling

  • Cysts

Hair Transplants are Expensive:

Some people are inclined towards the non-surgical hair transplants because they think it might be an affordable procedure. Because many clinics offer expensive surgical hair transplants. So most of the people avoid wasting their money on expensive hair transplant treatments. But now, you can get an affordable surgical and non-surgical hair transplant treatments with no side effects, complications and infections via hair transplant in Sharjah.
