Am I A Suitable Candidate for a Hair Transplant Surgery?


December 6, 2023

Now, more than ever, an increasing number of men and women are embracing hair transplants as a powerful solution to halt and manage their hair loss. Long gone are the days when men had to resort to using a toupée or the dreaded comb-over; the same for women, as female hair transplants are much more common now, and can accommodate women who would prefer not to fully shave their heads for the procedure (see unshaven hair transplant).

What Is Required To Get Hair Transplant?

Almost anyone can have hair grafts or a hair transplant. However, there are some hair transplant candidate criteria that will be evaluated before any surgery.

For a female or male hair transplant, you need two things: enough healthy hair on your scalp to move to the thinning area, and the ability to grow hair in that spot. Being able to ‘harvest’ healthy hair follicles from the back or sides of the head, and manually move it to the treatment area (i.e., hairline, crown, temples…) is key when being assessed as a suitable candidate for a hair transplant procedure.

That said, if a candidate for hair grafts doesn’t have an abundance of scalp hair, then the hair transplant surgeon can use hair from other body parts, like the chest or arms. However, the quality of hair, its texture, and growth patterns might differ from scalp hair.

If a hair transplant candidate has chronic telogen effluvium or alopecia areata that will need to be assessed alongside the potential outcomes of any hair grafting surgery, some types of hair loss might be a barrier to transplant surgery. Best to speak to a hair transplant expert and have your type of hair loss professional diagnosed.

Good news! Men and women with defined baldness, thinning hair, or those experiencing hair loss due to scalp injuries or cosmetic procedures usually make excellent candidates for hair restoration surgery.

Even scarring is no longer an issue with sophisticated tools like the cutting-edge Sapphire hair transplant surgical blade, which allows for individual hair follicles (e.g., hair grafts) to be placed more naturally and with greater precision. Sapphire FUE is an ideal hair restoration method for people with limited donor hair on the scalp, as the donor hair follicles can be taken from other areas of the scalp or body.

Este Turkey hair transplant surgeons use the DHI and FUE Sapphire Technique, as the Sapphire tip blades, made from a special gemstone, are sharper, smoother, and tougher than regular steel blades. When used to make incisions during hair transplant surgery, these remarkable blades create smaller and more delicate incisions. With the Sapphire FUE method there is a higher degree of surgical control when it comes to hair harvesting and transplanting for example.
