Although there is no specific age limit for hair transplantation, every healthy individual between the ages of 25-65 is suitable candidates for hair transplantation. The most important determining factor here; What we call the donor area is the sufficient amount and density of your hair, which is located at the back of the head and on the upper part of the neck, with the feature of non-shedding. However, there are many factors to consider before having a hair transplant. Special plans should be made according to your age, environmental factors and social status. If the area where the hair is shed or is a young person, it would be appropriate to calculate the areas that are likely to shed in later ages and make a good planning.

Here are the things you need to know about hair transplant candidates and what you need to pay attention to:

    1. Men and Women

    Hair transplantation is suitable for men and women. However, as there may be different reasons for hair loss in men and women, the method of hair transplantation may also differ.

    1. Degree of Hair Loss

    The most suitable candidates for hair transplantation are people who have hair loss problems but are not completely bald. Hair transplantation is not performed for people with advanced hair loss. Instead, other options may be offered, such as wearing prosthetic hair to areas where hair has been completely lost due to hair loss.

    1. Age Factor

    Suitable candidates for hair transplantation are usually between the ages of 25-65. However, the age factor alone is not a criterion. Hair transplant candidates are determined according to the cause of hair loss, the degree of hair loss and general health.

    1. General Health Status

    People with health problems may not be suitable candidates for hair transplantation. Hair transplantation is considered surgery and requires anesthesia. Complications related to anesthesia may occur in people with health problems.

    1. Hair Structure

    Hair structure of hair transplant candidates is also important. To get a good result, the hair strands must be thick and healthy. Therefore, before hair transplantation, it should be evaluated how healthy the hair is due to hair structure and hair loss.

         6. Expectations

Hair transplant candidates should set their expectations realistically. It is not possible to have a completely new hair structure after hair transplantation. After hair transplantation, it is aimed to make the hair look more lush and natural.

As a result, hair transplant candidates should be determined by considering many factors such as their general health status, hair loss degrees, hair structure and expectations.

Is Hair Transplantation Performed in Chronic Disorders?

Chronic diseases refer to recurrent or long-term diseases in the body. These conditions are often incurable and can significantly affect patients’ quality of life. Chronic diseases include many diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart diseases, multiple sclerosis. The treatment of these ailments is not only limited to medications and surgical interventions, but can also be managed by changing one’s lifestyle.

Hair transplantation has become a very popular aesthetic surgery procedure in recent years. In addition to the problem of baldness in men, it is preferred to solve problems such as hair loss in women. However, it is still unclear whether individuals with chronic diseases can have hair transplantation.

First of all, it should be noted that the same answer is not valid for all chronic diseases. In order for individuals with chronic diseases to have hair transplantation, they must first be under the control of a doctor. Depending on the type and severity of the disease they treat, and the use of medication, doctors can decide whether a hair transplant is appropriate. Some chronic conditions can complicate the hair transplant process or increase the risks.

For example, cancer patients may have a weak immune system due to chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment, and therefore hair transplantation may be risky. Similarly, diabetic patients should closely monitor their blood sugar levels before and after hair transplantation. Diabetes patients have a high risk of infection.

In addition, the drugs used by people with chronic diseases may also affect the hair transplant process. For example, blood thinners may increase the risk of bleeding in the hair transplant procedure.

However, there are cases where people with chronic conditions can have hair transplantation. Hair transplantation can be performed in cases where health problems are under control and the risks of the surgical procedure are evaluated. For example, hair transplantation can be performed in cases where the heart disease of a person with heart disease is under control and the risk of anesthesia is evaluated.

As a result, whether chronic diseases are an obstacle to hair transplantation may vary depending on the type, severity and treatment process of the person’s disease. For this reason, it is important for individuals with chronic diseases to consult their doctor before undergoing hair transplantation, to evaluate the use of drugs, possible risks and to have the necessary controls done. Afterwards, they can decide whether hair transplantation can be done or not.
