Hair Regrowth - Candidates

It is natural to wonder if you are a good candidate for hair regrowth procedure.

Ideal Hair Regrowth Candidates

When considering a hair transplant in New Jersey, it is natural to wonder if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Although one may assume that anyone experiencing hair loss or thinning is a good candidate for this procedure, it may not necessarily be the case. Hair loss in men is prevalent in our society with up to ⅔ of men reporting thinning or balding before age 50.

We have great news for women and men who struggle with hair loss. Hair thinning or balding can be effectively treated and even reversed to regrow a thick, healthy head of hair.

Traditionally, a full head of hair, for men and women, has been associated with youth, vitality and beauty. Therefore, when hair starts to thin or shed, self esteem and self-confidence tend to take a hit.

Hair loss, also known as alopecia, is an extremely common condition. Statistics have shown that hair loss in men is roughly 70% and upward of 50% for women in their lifetime. When hair loss occurs, it is usually troubling and can cause social difficulties as well as limit career options for those in the public eye.

While it is true that both men and women can lose hair or even go bald, it tends to be more noticeable in men. This is primarily due to the fact that hair loss in men looks different than it does in women.

Androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness (when it affects men) is the most common type of hair loss and is a permanent condition. Although women also experience female pattern baldness due to the same hormonal influences, men are more prone to this condition. It is this condition that often makes men better candidates than women for a hair transplant. This is because, with male pattern baldness, it is generally easier to place grafts in the correct location on the scalp since the bald areas are more visible. Women usually lose hair in a different pattern, known as diffuse hair loss, which is a thinning throughout the head, including the sides and the back. Since these are the areas that serve as the donor sites for a hair transplant, it can be challenging to achieve optimal results among women with this type of hair loss. However, when women have a receding hairline or thinning at the crown, they tend to be just as suitable as men for the transplant.

Male Hair Regrowth Candidates

Historically, a majority of the candidates for hair transplants have been men, and according to experts only an estimated 2-5% of women stand to benefit from these type of hair transplant procedures.

However, women suffering from other types of permanent hair loss; for example, Cicatricial alopecia, also known as scarring alopecia, may be good candidates for a hair transplant. This condition occurs when inflammation or scarring of the hair follicle permanently prevents new hair from growing. Scarring alopecia may also occur as the result of an illness such as lupus, which can cause extensive tissue inflammation of the skin.

Individuals suffering from scarring alopecia, or baldness resulting from burns or trauma are usually good candidates for a hair transplant. For those whose hair has fallen out due to these conditions, FUE hair regrowth systems such as the SmartGraft or Neograft hair loss solution can successfully regrow hair in the eyebrow and beard areas as well. Women suffering from hair loss resulting from excessive hair pulling and styling known as traction alopecia, may also be good candidates.

Ethnicity Factor

Ethnicity is another factor that may help determine if one is a good candidate for hair regrowth – transplant.

Since the density of the hair in the donor area is extremely important it should be taken into consideration if the hair is thin and straight or coarse and wavy. On average, people with European ethnicity tend to have the most hair follicles, followed by Asians and then African-Americans. The number of hair follicles plays an important role in determining how many hairs can safely be harvested for a transplant.

Regardless of gender and ethnicity, an ideal candidate for a hair transplant is also one who has been experiencing hair loss for at least 5 years or more. Hair surgeries are generally not recommended for those who are young because if the natural hair loss process has not yet ceased, the grafts may end up incorrectly distributed on the head when future balding proceeds.

A majority of candidates who opt for a hair transplant are individuals who feel that the premature loss or thinning of hair, results in an aged appearance. For this reason, many hair transplant candidates in New Jersey tend to be busy professionals, CEOs or A-list performers & other celebrity types in the public eye. A flawlessly natural, FUE hair transplant with express recovery time, can help them stay competitive at work by giving them a younger and more energetic appearance. Those who have been struggling with self-esteem and self-confidence issues due to hair loss in, are often great candidates for the procedure and enjoy a marked improvement in quality of life following the transplant.

Other Candidate Types

Another type of candidate for this advanced approach to hair transplant, is someone looking to achieve aesthetic improvements to previous scarring which resulted from a previous surgery.

Although FUE has a 90% success rate, a good candidate for the procedure should also have realistic expectations and understand that there is a small chance that their hair loss might continue to progress after surgery.

It is worth considering that in order to successfully reverse hair loss, there must be a sufficient supply of donor hair. Due to the limited amount of hair that can be used for transplants which is taken from the back and sides of the scalp, donor area hair density is extremely necessary to ensure optimal results.

During an evaluation at our New Jersey Hair Transplant Clinic, each patient’s case will be assessed individually to so that we can target your goals with you and formulate a realistic, effective plan.

Hair Transplant Satisfaction

Candidates who report the highest level of satisfaction from a hair transplant, are typically those who have been dealing with hair loss for a number of years.

If you have grown weary of the expense and effort required for temporary solutions and gimmicky products, and you are seeking a more permanent solution, FUE procedures could be right for you.

Following a hair transplant, it is recommended to simply follow the same general guidelines one normally would for a healthy scalp. For example, to avoid excessive use of heat styling appliances such as hair dryers and curling irons as well as avoiding shampoos and conditioners containing harsh chemicals such as sulfate and parabens.

A good candidate for a hair restoration procedure must also continue to adhere to post-procedure restrictions in order to ensure the best possible results and reduce risk of infection. Although patients can resume most normal activities the day after the hair transplant, it is important to avoiding swimming pools and hot tubs until completely healed.

Patients can often resume full activity, including their fitness and sports regimen, within a week following the procedure. Furthermore, most patients are also able to wash and style their hair normally within just a few days and begin enjoying their new and improved head of hair.

For those men with hair loss in New Jersey who are looking for a permanent and effective solution, trust the hair loss specialists at New Jersey Hair Transplant Clinic to restore your confidence and your celebrity status.
