Am I a suitable candidate for hair transplant surgery?
The procedure is recommended for anyone who wants a permanent, natural-looking solution to partial baldness. Candidates with male pattern baldness, a receding hairline, traction alopecia or trauma to the hair could benefit from having hair transplant surgery. The procedure is not, however, recommended for diffuse female pattern balding, alopecia areata (spot baldness) or for those with insufficient hair at the donor site. Since it’s difficult to assess the long-term stability of donor hair and the extent of future hair loss when patients are young, it’s best to wait until you’re at least 25 to have a hair transplant.
