Starting With Realistic Hair Goals

Starting With Realistic Hair Goals

Candidates for hair transplants are individuals with significant hair loss, thinning hair, or baldness in specific areas due to hereditary factors, hormonal imbalances, or medical conditions. The primary goal of a hair transplant is to restore natural-looking hair to an area of the scalp that has lost hair or has insufficient growth.

Hair transplant surgery can help patients achieve a more youthful, natural appearance that can help boost their confidence and improve their overall quality of life. It is important to work with an experienced hair transplant specialist who can assess individual needs and provide personalized advice on the most appropriate approach for achieving the goals of the patient.

Why you might opt for a hair transplant:

Genetic Hair Loss

Male-pattern baldness and female-pattern hair thinning are common conditions caused by genetics. Individuals experiencing hair loss due to androgenetic alopecia, a hereditary disorder in which hair follicles are sensitive to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), may be good candidates for hair transplant surgery. A hair transplant can help restore hair growth in the bald or thinning areas of the scalp.

Trauma-Related Hair Loss

Burns or injuries to the scalp can cause hair loss. A hair transplant can help restore hair growth in these areas. Alopecia due to scarring, such as those arising from skin conditions, burns or injury, can also be helped with hair transplant surgery.

Traction Alopecia

Hair loss due to tight hairstyles such as braids and weaves can sometimes damage hair follicles beyond repair. A hair transplant can replace lost hair.

Prior Surgical Procedures

Prior surgeries such as facelifts or brow lifts can cause hair loss or thinness in the scalp area. Hair transplant surgery can help restore lost hair. Patients who previously tried standard medical treatments or hair restoration techniques like scalp micropigmentation can benefit from a hair transplant.

Aesthetic Reasons

Some people may have naturally thin hair or may want fuller, thicker hair for aesthetic reasons. Hair transplant surgery can help achieve these goals.

Overall, the decision to opt for a hair transplant is a personal one and should be made after consulting with a qualified hair transplant surgeon who can provide recommendations based on individual hair loss patterns and goals. Our Board-Certified surgeons will assess your overall health and hair density to determine if you are suitable for the procedure.
