Is receding hair line bothering you? Is slight recession in your hairline making you conscious about your looks? Wondering if you can have a small surgery to fix your hairline? If your answer is yes then rejoice! You have come to the right place. Here we will share with you what exactly is a hair transplant and who is a candidate for the surgery.
What Is A Hair Transplant Surgery?
Starting off with the hair transplant surgery, as the name suggests it is a surgical procedure that involves redistribution of existing healthy hair on the scalp to make your head look fuller and denser. Hairs on different areas of your scalp react differently to the balding genes. While the hairs at the temples, hairline and the crow area are predisposed to Androgenic Alopecia, the hairs at the back and sides of the scalp are balding resistant and some of them remain intact even in the worst form of male pattern baldness. So, hair transplant surgeons extract healthy hair follicles from the balding resistant areas of the scalp and transplants them in the thinning or bald areas in the frontal region.
Are You A Candidate For Hair Transplant Surgery?
That said, a hair transplant surgery does not trigger new hair regrowth, nor does it stop progression of baldness. Your age and extent of baldness also plays a key role in determining your candidacy for surgical hair restoration. Based on these factors, your doctor will determine how good a candidate you can be for the procedure, but only after physical examination. For example, hair transplant surgery is not recommended to patients under 25, or those whose hair loss is still progressing.
Hair Transplant on a Small Patch:
As far as surgery to cover a small patch is concerned, there is no limitation for the size of balding area to perform surgery. You can get a hair transplant only on your temple even. Hair transplants don’t have to be large. Size of hairless patch will only be used to determine number of grafts required for the surgery. Some people get a transplant that needs just a few hundred grafts while other go for up to 4000 grafts as well. However, it is always a good idea to schedule an in person consultation with some experienced hair transplant surgeon and let him decide how good a candidate you are with realistic goals and expectations.
