You need to have some hair
First things first, although we can restore a receding hair line and cover your bald patches, in order to have a hair transplant, you need to have donor hair. Sadly a hair transplant is not a viable option if you are completely or almost bald.
Hair replacement candidates need to have healthy hair growth at the back and sides of the head, as they will serve as donor areas. A donor area is the place on the head where hair grafts are taken from, and then inserted to the balding recipient area. In order to get the best results you must have sufficient hair in the donor area.
Your hair type
The different characteristics of your hair can also affect the success of a hair transplant. Factors such as hair colour, texture and waviness or curliness may affect the cosmetic result. The colour of your hair and how it relates to the underlying skin colour is important. During your consultation we will discuss how well a hair transplant will work on your colour and type of hair.
The cause of your hair loss
Hair loss can happen for different reasons and the cause of your hair loss will also determine if you’re suitable for a hair transplant. Stress-related hair loss is a good example of when we would not recommend a hair transplant, hair loss through stress is not permanent and a hair transplant would not be worthwhile for you.
Those who have been losing their hair due to male pattern baldness for a few years are the perfect hair transplant candidate. Our hair loss specialists will discuss the cause of your hair loss with you during a consultation to ensure a hair transplant is the correct treatment for you.
Age and severity of hair loss
A receding hair line is something men of a young age can start to form. This receding hair line can often knock your confidence and lead to you investigating the option of a hair transplant. In some cases men ages as young as 21 think they need a transplant for their receding hair line, when in actual fact they’re not ready.
During our consultation we will look at the severity of your hair loss, it could be that your hair has began to thin in which case we might recommend scalp micropigmentation, or maybe your receding hairline actually isn’t as bad as you think and we might advise you to come back to us in a couple of years.
