Baldness is present in over 64% males in India. Our forefathers too developed baldness but when
they did, it was at a later age than us. It is common to see baldness today in the early 20s and
this ia achieving alarming proportions
and is almost akin to an epidemic. With underlying genetic prediliction coupled with
environmental factors like growing pollution and changing lifestyle, hairloss takes a heavy toll
on our minds The hair loss pattern starts
showing up and becomes prominent within no time. Under such a scenario, it becomes very
important for people to go for hair treatment or simply have a transplant to look natural.
In so doing many fall prey to fly by night operators or technicians who have opened shop all over
the world. These unethical for profit only clinics make it absolutely important for a bald
individual to do his research well. The
most important question and the foremost is- Are you a good candidate for a hair transplant?
This article will answer this question as best as any can-
1. What factors do you need to consider?
In order to get the right answer to the question “ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR A HAIR
TRANSPLANT!”, you need first look inwards and see if you have the mindset
for a hair transplant. Do you have realistic expectations? After all hair transplant does not
compete with God’s creation. We do mimic
it closely but can never give full density which some may expect. Also baldness being a
continuous process, this may not be your last procedure.
2. Is there anything that may worsen your predilection for genetic hair
Many things play important roles behind the salubrious hair. These include:
i. Your health
You must be at the best of their health before undergoing any surgical process. Good health
includes a great immunity system too. So before making up your mind about undergoing a surgical
process of hair transplant, it is wise
to inform the surgeon about your medical history in order to avoid complications.
ii. Your food habits
Good Food habits and lifestyle have a direct say in the quality of hair you have. A balanced
diet, regular exercises and stress-free life could enhance your health and help you maintain
good hair appreciably. However, in
the adverse situation, where you fail to attain these necessities, the hair starts losing its
shape and breaks right from the roots.
3. What you want matters?
When it comes to hair transplant, age is just a number. It really does not matter how old you are
or whether are you a good candidate for hair transplant even at middle age or more. It only
depends on what you want and
what suits the best as per your personality. At Darling buds Clinic, Dr Bhatti has operated on
several patients above 80 years of age!
When you are a candidate for a procedure, here is
what we can do after exaning
and assessing your pattern-
- Complete hair restoration for extensive baldness Grade 5 and 6
- Receding hairline correction in Grades 2 and 3
- Bald spot filling in the crown area alone for Grade 4
- Filling up of thinning areas along important zones like hairline and temples, etc.
So you don’t need to wait for your head to go completely bald, instead, you can opt for
hair transplant right the time you
observe the first signs of hair loss. Provided the density has fallen to less than 50%.
4. Types of hair treatment you can expect
You can always take care of minor or temporary hair fall issues by natural remedies. However,
there is a very fine line between minor hair fall and permanent hair fall, as the latter extends
for a longer period of time
and seems irreversible.
- Generally, hair fall occurs in a pattern and this is the case with most people. The
hairline starts to recede, especially on the sides, exposing a very broad forehead.
- Simultaneously, the crown of the head starts to lose a lot of hair, exposing the bald
- The hair keeps thinning, especially from the front and the crown until the front portion
of the head does not have any hair.
Thankfully, hair transplant can restore all the
hair back and you can start looking
young again.Since baldness is progressive, you may continue to gt touch ups for newer
areas of baldness that may appear over the years.
5. Your patience and commitment is the key
While you research and make up your mind to undergo a hair transplant, you need to patiently
consider the following-
- Hair transplant requires pre and post-surgery care. Make sure you follow the surgeon’s
instructions for a speedy recovery.
- Have realistic expectations. You won’t just walk in with thin hair and walk out with a
head full of hair. It takes time.
- In respect to the hair fall and extent of baldness, the surgeon might prescribe more
than one implant procedure sessions so that hair restores back to its full potential.
