Like any cosmetic surgical procedure, determining your candidacy ultimately comes down to a discussion between you and your physician, and robotic hair transplantation is no exception. However, there are some common factors that can help determine if hair transplantation is right for you. As the most effective and advanced method of hair restoration available, many people are interested in achieving real hair growth again in balding areas. Here are a few points to consider when deciding if hair transplantation is the best option for you.
Experience with hair loss
Men who have been balding for years are usually in a good position to look into robotic hair transplantation. A man who has been losing hair over time and has tried other hair loss medications can be a good candidate because his pattern for hair loss is more stabilized and predictable, making his transplantation plan even more accurate.
While robotic hair transplantation can also be right for younger patients, being able to determine the future expected hair loss for a patient while understanding their hair loss pattern significantly improves the hair transplantation procedure.
Amount of donor hair
A person is considered good candidate for robotic hair transplantation when they have a stable supply of donor hair, which is sufficient to cover the current and future areas of hair loss. Ultimately, the amount of hair that is transplanted depends on the amount of hair you have available at the back of the scalp or donor area. If your hair is dense, you may be able to have more follicles transplanted and achieve better coverage. If your hair is thinner in the donor area, your procedure might require a more conservative approach.
Hair transplantation might also be fitting for men and women who have lost hair due to trauma or burns or an unrelated cosmetic procedure. Overall, robotic hair transplantation is considered successful for both the physician and the patient when realistic expectations of potential outcomes are outlined at the beginning of the process.
