How do I know I need a hair transplant?

The first question that comes in mind while choosing a hair transplant: Is the process really needed? Am I a good candidate for hair transplant? It is obvious to have such dilemma in mind and you may not be able to make your mind to go for it. 

Though many people are good candidate for hair transplant surgery but you need to consider:

  • Your expectations
  • Age
  • Hair texture
  • Contrast between hair colour and skin

The important consideration to start with is being realistic about what this surgery can offer you. If there is only minor amount of hair loss then there are chances of best results. On the contrary, if your hair loss is at an advanced stage then you are unlikely to have sufficient donor hair to cover your bald areas that makes you a bad candidate for hair transplant.

No matter what, the ultimate aim is for a flattering and natural looking head of hair. Age is another factor as the baldness advances over time and hair loss occur. 

The texture of your hair is also important as thick hair covers the scalp better than fine hair. If your hair is fine then you will need transplant sessions in order to cover your bald area. For thick, curly hair the rate of coverage of your scalp will be double or even triple than with thin hair. 

Also, if your hair colour is a good match with the colour of your skin then your hair transplant will look natural. This is also a deciding factor between having surgery or not. The aesthetic side of things is just as important as other reasons. It is because hairs are the first thing we notice when we meet someone and everyone wants their hair to look healthy, natural and at its best.

If you have a ‘low hairline’ then you will require more grafts than someone with a‘high hairline’. Your genetics will play a part in the type of hairline you have. A positive aspect of a high hairline is that you will need less hair transplanted than someone with a lower hairline.

What Makes a Good Hair Transplant Candidate?

A best candidate for hair transplant is someone who is concerned about his or her appearance and wants to improve it. People who have thinning areas on the scalp and look out for a process to cover it, treating a bald spot on their head or restoring a receding hairline  as well as to restore hair on thinning eyebrows, beards, or mustaches. Scars on the scalp or face may also be helped with transplantation.

Hair Transplant and Age

Though you can have a hair transplant at any age but there are some conditions that are taken into consideration. Also, patient must have proper expectations about what his or her hair loss is going to be in the future.

Health Conditions

If you are suffering from any medical condition, you are not a candidate for hair transplant. If you want to go for it, it is good to consult a doctor before going any type of surgical procedure. Make sure that the serious medical conditions are treated and resolved before surgery. If you have a chronic health condition like diabetes, or if you’re taking prescribed medications that may adversely affect your results, discuss with your surgeon so a treatment plan can be customized for you.


Healthy lifestyle choices, such as eating a balanced diet, exercising, and avoiding stress, not only help you feel better but also are good for your skin, hair, and nails. It is important to avoid tobacco products such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. All these choices can affect the every aspect of our lives.
