Having a hair transplant surgery increases your self-confidence and makes you look younger. However, not everyone may be a suitable candidate for hair transplantation. Well, who is suitable for a hair transplant? Am I suitable for hair transplant treatment?


Is Everyone Suitable For Hair Transplant?

There are more than one criteria for eligibility for hair transplantation. The criteria considered to determine the eligibility for hair transplantation:

• Donor Area

• Hair Loss Type

• Health situation

• Age Factor


Donor Area

Hair follicles to be transplanted to hairless areas are taken from the donor area. The most used area as a donor area is the neck. This area between the two ears is the ideal area for hair transplantation. Some people may not have enough hair follicles in this area. In cases where the hair structure in the neck is insufficient for hair transplantation, other areas can be used. Legs, arms, shoulders, and chin are some of them.

Can a bald person get a hair transplant? If you have lost almost all of your hair, there may not be enough hair follicles in your donor area to cover the balding areas. In this case, you may not be a suitable candidate for hair transplantation. This can be understood by examining the donor area by a specialist. For this, you can contact our specialist patient coordinator and doctor by filling out this form.


 Hair Loss Type

Your hair loss type is also a determining factor for the operation. The best candidates for hair transplantation are those with male pattern hair loss.

Hair loss can have many different causes. Male pattern hair loss, genetics, stress, diseases, accidents, seasonal changes and malnutrition are some of the causes of hair loss. Treatment of all types of hair loss is not the same. If you are experiencing a temporary hair loss, you can regain your old hair with the appropriate treatment method. However, if new hair does not grow instead of your shedding hair and your hair is getting thinner day by day, hair transplantation is the only solution for you.


Health Situation

A hair transplant is a surgical operation. Whether you are eligible for hair transplantation is directly influenced by your health history. To have an operation, your health condition must be appropriate. If you have a serious illness that weakens the immune system, you may not be a suitable candidate for surgery. Some medications used regularly can increase the risk of complications in hair transplantation operations.
