How do you know if you are a good candidate for hair transplant or not? Are there some people who do not make good candidates?
In today’s work, it is possible to get good hair transplant results with almost every patient because of the many improvements in the field and our extensive experience with different kinds of patients. However, there are some people who, because of their hair color, hair texture and scalp color, are better candidates than other people. Patients who have extremely pale scalps and thick, dark, straight hair may have a little tendency to be more difficult to transplant naturally than others, however good work will make a good result on almost any patient there is. If you have any questions regarding the texture of your hair and your scalp, you can certainly e-mail pictures to us or get a consult and we will go over it in great detail.
