Ideal Candidates for FUE Hair Restoration

Ideal Candidates for FUE Hair Restoration

Most people want to have a full head of strong and healthy hair. Due to some factors like age and heredity, however, many individuals have to deal with problems associated with hair loss. To get the desired look, such people have to rely on proven methods of reversing baldness or thinning of hair such as FUE (Follicular Unit Excision and Extraction) hair restoration.

FUE hair restoration procedure is safe, it is effective, and it delivers natural-looking results. But the procedure does not suit everyone who has experienced hair loss. Here are just some of the factors that can help determine the ideal candidates for FUE hair restoration:

Age and Health

In most cases, hair loss affects individuals between 35 and 65 years old. However, there are those whose hair starts thinning at a younger age. Overall, a suitable candidate for FUE hair restoration is one who is over 25 years of age. At this age, hair thinning or loss has stabilized and professionals can establish its pattern. Your general health is another aspect that determines your eligibility for this procedure. You have to be of good health to qualify.

Hair Density in the Donor Area

FUE hair restoration procedure involves extracting follicular units from your donor area on the back of your head and transplanting that donor hair to areas where thinning has occurred. As such, you must have enough available donor hair for the procedure to be successful. If your baldness has gone too far, then you may not be eligible for the FUE procedure. Furthermore, the quality, natural dynamics of your hair and the health your donor hair helps determine your eligibility for this surgical procedure. FUE procedures are ideal for patients who desire to maintain short or shaved hairstyles.

The Cause of Baldness

If your cause of baldness is a condition that prevents natural hair growth or it results from trauma such as scarring or burns, then you could be a suitable candidate for FUE hair restoration. You can talk to our expert hair doctors to establish the cause of your hair loss and determine if you qualify for the procedure. You might also qualify for FUE hair transplantation if medically proven hair thinning or loss treatments don’t work for you.
