First of all, it is important to seek the advice of your doctor before taking any action. It is also important to hire a reputable, qualified hair loss expert who can provide careful assessment and facilitate transplant surgery through an experienced surgeon.

To be considered for transplant surgery, you need to have a significant amount of existing or 'donor' hair of good quality. Thinning of hair that occurs in an area, e.g. the crown is more likely to be suitable for hair transplantation. Unfortunately, large areas with total hair loss are not considered suitable for transplantation, as the success rate for regrowth is minimal.

You must also generally be in good health. Hair transplantation is a major operation performed under local anesthesia with an associated recovery period. For the surgery to be successful, you need to be fit and healthy and ideally you will not like other major medical conditions.

There are also age restrictions associated with hair transplant surgery. Graduates must be over 18, but many experienced surgeons do not perform hair transplants on young adults. This is because genetic or natural hair loss is yet to occur and will affect the transplanted hair. Even if you are in your late 20s or early 30s, hair loss can still occur. This means that if you undergo surgery, the new hair may fall out and it is a waste of your investment! Visit:

It is worth noting that there are new surgical techniques involved in hair transplants. One option is FUE - Follicular Unit Extraction - which means that hair is extracted individually from the back of the head and replanted across the area. This is a lengthy, pain-promoting process, but the result is minimal scarring and a very natural hairline. The other main technique used in hair transplantation is FUT - follicular unit transplantation. This technique involves taking a larger area or 'strip' of hair from the back of the head, dividing it into smaller units and then replanting these units in the desired area of ​​hair loss. Scarring may be a little more noticeable on the back of the head as a larger area has been removed, but an expert surgeon will minimize incision marks to ensure quick healing.
