Hello and Welcome to Capital Hair Center

Since hair transplantation is a surgical procedure performed by specialist doctors and clinics, patients want to know whether they are ideal candidates for hair transplantation. Suitable candidates are ready for hair transplantation after making the necessary preparations. In order for hair transplantation to be successful and to avoid complications afterward, the convenience of the person for hair transplantation is an essential issue. So, who is suitable for hair transplant, and what are the minimum requirements for hair transplantation?

Patients would be over 18 years old

For hair transplantation, patients must be at least 18 years old, that is, of legal age.  Hair loss varies according to the age of the person. Some patients experience hair loss at an early age, while others may experience it later. Waiting for the person’s hair loss to stop completely for hair transplantation may be good to get more permanent results. For men, hair loss usually stops completely at the age of 40. However, depending on the patient’s hair structure and genetic characteristics, this may also happen at an earlier age.

The patient must experience male pattern hair loss

Almost every patient with male pattern hair loss is suitable for hair transplantation. What is meant by male pattern hair loss here is the effect of male hormone (DHT) in people who are genetically predisposed to hair loss. In addition, the cells that produce hair around the hair follicle die over time under the influence of this hormone. Thus, the hair first becomes thinner, then begins not to grow, and finally falls out completely. Patients with this are appropriate for hair transplantation.

There should be enough grafts in the donor area

One of the most common problems faced by patients in hair transplantation is the lack of sufficient grafts in the donor area. The donor region covers the area between the nape of the neck and the ear. In addition to having enough grafts in the donor area, the quality of the grafts you find is also important. The quality of the grafts varies according to the hair color, the thickness of the hair strand, and the shape of the hair strand.

The character of your hair affects your suitability for hair transplantation and the success of your hair transplantation

There are several hair characteristics that may or may not qualify you for a hair transplant. Hair color, texture, and waviness or curliness will all have an impact on the success of a hair transplant.

Hair Type

After determining the extent of your hair loss, your hair type is assessed. Different hair types produce different results. Thick, coarse hair covers more ground than fine hair. Wavy and curly hair also has advantages when it comes to coverage.

Hair Density

The density of the hair in the donor area is important in determining whether you are suitable for hair transplantation. The more hair there is in your donor area, the greater the chance of success.

Hair Color

Hair color is one of the most important factors in determining how effective the result is. This is due to the color contrast between the hair and the scalp. Those with similar hair and skin color are less bald than those with a large difference between the hair and scalp.

Hair Texture

Hair thickness can influence whether a hair transplant is successful. Thicker hair requires fewer drafts to achieve a successful cosmetic effect. Those with thicker hair will be able to prevent more light from reflecting off the scalp, resulting in a more cosmetic effect.

It is necessary not to have some chronic diseases for hair transplantation

Some chronic diseases are obstacles to hair transplantation. Ultimately, since hair transplantation is a surgical procedure, it should not trigger other diseases in order to be performed. Those with heart, kidney, and liver failure and diabetes patients cannot have hair transplantation. In addition, if the anesthesia given to the person creates a reaction, hair transplantation does not occur.

Those with flexible scalp are more suitable for hair transplantation

In general, the chance of success increases in transplantation as the hair will be transplanted more easily into the follicles of patients whose scalp is flexible. In addition, the elasticity of the skin makes the healing process more comfortable because the stretching of the elastic skin is less. After all, the skin will bind the crust during the healing process. Thus, a less painful healing process is passed.

What can patients who are not suitable for hair transplantation do?

For patients who are not suitable for operation, intensive hair care programs are applied. These restorative treatments, it is aimed to strengthen the hair a little more. Progress is observed with periodic checks by the doctor. Based on these results, hair care tools are changed or resumed. Patient expectations should not be high in this regard. It may be the most logical way to protect the existing hair follicles by staying away from stress, doing sports, and eating healthy.
