Am I a good hair transplant candidate? what should I know before a hair transplant
Many bald men want to undergo a hair transplant to get their natural hair looks once again but is everyone a good hair transplant candidate? let’s see!
First of all, do you have enough healthy hair?
If you have enough healthy hair on the back of your scalp (which we call it in hair bank or reserve) and your skin is good and healthy enough for a hair transplant and of course, if you want a natural-looking hair, consider a hair transplant surgery. All men and women whose hair loss is not temporary and a good hair reserve in the back of their scalp are good candidates for a hair transplant.
What about age? The best time to have a hair transplant
If you are in your early 20s and experiencing hair loss, for the best results, it is better to wait for a hair transplant till the late 20s or early 30s; so, start to treat your hair loss problems with hair loss medicines and wait till 30s. if you wait for longer, you may lose your hair reserve till then, so do not hurry for a hair transplant while you are too young. If summery hair transplant specialists in Iran say the best time for a hair transplant is between 25 to 55 years old.
Dermatologists’ specialty is skin, hair, and nail so they could give the best advice whether you are a good candidate for hair transplant or not. All men and women whose hair loss is not temporary and a good hair reserve in the back of their scalp are good candidates for a hair transplant.
A good dermatologist will consult you about these during the scalp exam. To better understanding your hair loss reasons, usually, you may need a blood test to check for things causing your hair loss. Sometimes a scalp biopsy is performed during your session with the dermatologist, too.
