Who can have a hair transplant?

Hair transplantation is generally an application for people with balding areas. The formation of balding areas due to hair loss can be caused by various reasons. These;

  • Congenital regional hair loss
  • Male pattern hair loss
  • Hair loss due to burns
  • Female pattern hair loss
  • Regional hair loss due to any infection
  • Hair loss due to factors such as surgery and accident
  • Traction alopecia, i.e. hair loss caused by excessive stretching of the hair
  • It is appropriate to have hair transplantation for people who suffer from hair loss as a result of psychological diseases in which hair and hairs are constantly plucked.

For male type of hair loss: Hair transplantation can be applied to most people with male type of hair loss. Both genetic factors and male hormone are effective in this type of hair loss. Hair transplantation can be performed for people with male pattern hair loss due to androgenic type, hormones, genetic factors and hormones. These factors first thin the hair strands, then lengthen them and then fall out. In practice, hair transplantation is applied more to people in this group. People with such hair loss get a permanent solution thanks to hair transplantation.

In female type of hair loss: There is no risk of baldness in women genetically. However, they may encounter hair loss problems. In this type of hair loss, the hair on the front of the head does not fall out like men. The area affected by this is the crown of the head. The causes of this hair loss are genetics and hormones. Hair transplantation offers permanent solutions to those who have this problem.

About hair loss caused by factors such as burns, strokes, trauma: There are problems in regional blood flow due to such factors. Hairless areas occur in areas without blood circulation. People who are exposed to this can regain their hair with the help of hair transplantation.

Traction alopecia, ie hair loss caused by excessive stretching of the hair: This problem is more common in women. Collecting their hair with tight hairpins and making it a habit can cause hair loss. Hair follicles that are overstretched are weaken and then shedding occurs. This situation can lead to bald areas over time due to the fact that the hair is not replaced.

Hair loss caused by the rupture of hair strands due to psychological diseases: In this type of disorder, people unwittingly tear the hair follicles. This increases the risk of baldness in the area. The problem should be solved by both treating these patients and hair transplantation to the hairless area. When the hair plucked in this way grows out with its roots, there is no way for the hair to grow again.

It is the form of hair loss that determines the decision of hair transplantation. Hair transplantation is decided according to the type of hair loss rather than the age of the person. When viewed from the outside, if the skin in the hairy area is visible, it means that the density of the hair in the area has decreased by 50%. In this case, hair transplantation will be the best decision. There is no age limit for people to have a hair transplant. This application can be made to people of all ages.

In some cases, age may be a determinant in the decision of hair transplantation. However, the persistence of hair loss in these people is taken into account. Normally, in those with male pattern hair loss, the hair continues throughout life. However, the rate of hair loss begins to decrease with the age of 40. If hair transplantation is performed under this age, 1-2 more sessions may be required. People who have hair transplantation should be aware of this.

The person to be transplanted should have enough hair. People who will have hair transplantation should have enough hair in the areas where the hair follicles are taken, namely on the sides and back of the head. In addition, the presence of hair in areas such as chest and legs may be sufficient for hair transplantation. Hair transplantation is an application made with FUT and FUE technique. The FUE technique allows the hair strands and hairs to be removed individually with a micro motor. For this reason, hairs can be taken from any part of the body. Candidates can regain their hair. Therefore, developing techniques are great for people who can have hair transplantation.
