One of the most common questions we are asked at Plasma Medica is “am I a good candidate for hair transplant surgery?”
Most men with significant thinning or baldness, and in good general health, are individual for hair transplant. That said, only about one in three patients who visit Plasma Medica proceed to surgery. Surgery, though possible, may not always be the best immediate method. It is not uncommon for Plasma Medica patients who want hair transplant California residents are advised to visit us and check out the options available.
Younger candidates for hair restoration
Younger men in their 20s may not be suitable to undergo hair transplant surgery as their hair loss pattern may not yet be fully established. If surgery for hair transplant California is carried out before someone’s hair loss is fully established, an island of the transplanted hair will appear at the front side of the head as the hairline on the crown and hair continue to decrease over time. Even women who have been suffering from pattern baldness are also suitable to undergo the surgery.
During the consultation, the doctor will find out whether the patient is suitable to undergo the transplant by checking the density of the donor’s hair and the laxity of their scalp. When an individual has high donor density, it means they have multiple hairs contained in the follicular units. Low donor density means they have only one hair present in the follicular units. If a patient has loose scalp then a larger donor strip of hair-bearing skin can be eradicated, whereas a tight scalp means only a thin donor strip is possible.
Then your surgeon will find out the best possible hair restoration for the patient, taking into consideration balding pattern, donor hair and number of grafts they can afford. The plan may call for one or many hair transplant surgeries or a combination of surgery and pharmacological treatments.
