Hair restoration is one of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery procedures. Many men and women seek hair restoration surgery because hair loss can have a negative impact on self-esteem and confidence. If you’re suffering from male or female-pattern baldness or want to change the position of your hair line, you could be a candidate for hair restoration surgery.
- A Healthy Patient
Before your cosmetic surgeon can determine whether you are a good candidate for surgery, he or she must evaluate your health. During your consultation, the surgeon will ask for information about your lifestyle, genetic history, and current health status. He or she will also try to determine the cause of your hair loss. Hair loss can result from stress, hormonal imbalances, and nutrient deficiencies. In these cases, hair loss can be reversed without hair restoration surgery.
- Hair Texture
Hair texture won’t disqualify you for the procedure, but it could affect the cosmetic result. Your surgeon may need to rely on multiple techniques during your hair restoration surgery to achieve your desired look. The color of your hair and scalp, along with its waviness or curliness, will also affect the surgery and cosmetic results.
- Number of Hair Follicles
The hair that isn’t affected by hair loss is referred to as donor hair. Many hair restoration surgeries involve transplanting the donor hair to the areas where hair has stopped growing. During your consultation, your surgeon may measure the amount of donor hair you have. This will help the surgeon determine which hair restoration procedure will give you the best cosmetic results.
- Patient’s Goals and Expectations
Finally, your surgeon will ask about your goals and expectations for hair restoration surgery. Several factors determine whether you can achieve full hair re-growth and how long re-growth can take. Your surgeon will want to make sure you have realistic goals and expectations before scheduling your surgery.
