What Degree of Hair Loss Do You Have Now?

Many people ask their Miami hair transplant surgeon what the best time for their hair surgery will be, but the answer can be hard to pin down. That’s because factors like career, social life, schedules and personal preference all factor in. The stage of life and your age matter as well. We’ll outline a surgeon’s expert opinion about the key factors that influence timing.

In order to undergo a successful hair transplant, a sufficient amount of robust donor hairs is required. That means for those who’ve shed so much hair that they have little left, a transplant may not be possible. To cover the thin areas you have, your surgeon will want to determine that you have plenty of hair to spread out, and preferably that you could transfer additional follicles if needed in the future.

How Old Are You?

There’s no strict rule about age, but many hair surgeons will advise against proceeding if you’re under 25, or even 30. This is primarily because in cases of androgenic alopecia ( male pattern baldness) the hairs which are genetically programmed to fall out may not have done so yet. In your 20s, you could see receding and thinning, but not yet know how much further it will go. The average age for hair transplant in Miami is over 35. At that point, hair loss can be more predictable and ensure you get anticipated results.

FUE Survey

Are you a Candidate?

Have you considered options for a hair transplant, but you aren’t sure what the procedure involves or if it is the right choice for you? Answer a few simple questions to see if you are a good candidate for FUE Hair Transplant.

How Dense Is Your Harvest Site?

Most people spend time analyzing their receding hairline and crown, but the hair at the back and sides of the head is critical.

Redistributing the follicles, you have effectively, without creating the unwanted effect of donor depletion, is the goal. FUE techniques allow expert surgeons to remove just tiny, diffuse and randomized hair grafts from the back of the head in a way that they’ll never be missed. However, this effect depends somewhat on the hair you start with.

Manage Expectations

Many people dream of having one, transformative procedure that completely restores their hair for a lifetime. In some cases, this is possible, but that depends on the influences mentioned above. In many cases, a 2-step treatment plan may be devised, involving a strip transplant, followed by FUE. Your surgeon may also recommend that you choose an area which has the most impact for you, such as the hairline, and work on filling there while leaving some of the crown. When there are limited grafts to work with, prioritizing implantation for the best coverage and effect is usually advised.

If a hair transplant in Miami is not the best approach for you, rest assured that there are non-surgical, laser and pharmaceutical approaches that work well for many people. We have several treatment options, and often we combine them for the best overall outcome. We welcome you to call and learn what the next steps for you could look like.
