Do You Really Need a Hair Transplant? Hair Loss Condition and Finding the Suitable Treatment

Hair loss conditions are very depressing for people in every age, every gender and every race; many people suffering from hair loss conditions are seeking for the most convenient treatment for themselves. Finding a treatment for yourself is a complex thing to do due to the abundance on the number of options and the different needs of different conditions. The most effective solution has been accepted to be hair transplant; hair transplant procedures are searched and opted by many patients every day for their promising results and smooth progress. But, are these procedures suitable for every individual’s condition or able to provide the kind of treatment for every type of hair loss?    To figure out whether you really need a hair transplant to treat your hair loss, there are certain factors that should be considered.

Type of the hair loss

One of these factors are the type of your hair loss; there are many types and many causes for hair loss condition some of which are permanent while some others are temporary. Hair transplant procedures are considered more suitable for those suffering from permanent hair loss or when it is uncertain if the fallen hair will grow back or not. The most commonly experienced permanent hair loss conditions are Androgenic Alopecia (male and female pattern baldness), Involutional Alopecia (hair loss caused by aging) and Alopecia Areata(immune disorder causing hair loss in different parts of the body); while in these conditions, hair transplant can be very successful, in more temporary types of hair loss such as seasonal hair loss or stress related hair loss, hair transplant is usually recommended only if the problem occurs for a very long time and cannot be treated by the elimination of its cause.

Level of the hair loss

Second most important factor to consider before having a hair transplant is the level of your hair loss. The most common type of hair loss is male pattern hair loss today; the best way to measure your male pattern hair loss objectively is Norwood Scale. This is a scale used by doctors very commonly. It has 7 stages and as the number increases the hair loss severity increases as well. Hair transplant is recommended for patients who suffer from Stage 3 or higher stage of hair loss according to this scale as it is usually the point where the condition becomes clearly visible and disturbing.

Expectations from a hair transplant

One other important thing to consider before a hair transplant is your expectations; every hair loss patient has a unique body and face. The expectation on style, density or the shape of your hairline may be different. Patients with realistic expectations are more likely to be satisfied with a hair transplant surgery; the detailed discussion on your expectations should be done with a hair transplant specialist and his/her opinions about possible results should be taken into consideration.
