Who is a Candidate for Hair Restoration Surgery?

In general, most men and women who are in reasonably good health are candidates for hair restoration surgery; however, each individual has unique needs and goals, and some people may be more ideal for specific procedures than others.

Good candidates for hair transplant surgery typically include:

  • Men suffering from male pattern baldness
  • Women suffering from female pattern hair loss
  • Individuals with thinning hair
  • Individuals who have areas of lost hair due to injury
  • Individuals who have an adequate amount of donor hair
  • For most patients, hair is taken from the sides or back of the head for transplantation to the thinning/balding areas.

Those who are experiencing hair loss due to chemotherapy or other medications are typically not ideal candidates for hair restoration procedures. Our experienced hair transplant surgeon can meet with you for a complimentary consultation to evaluate your needs and answer your questions. At this meeting, Dr. Bernardino Arocha can determine whether you are a candidate for hair restoration surgery and talk with you about the best treatment options for your needs.

It is very important for individuals considering hair transplant surgery to have realistic expectations for results. The nature of your hair loss, the condition of the hair in donor areas, and your overall health will all be taken into account when determining your candidacy for surgery. That being said, the hair restoration techniques available today are much more advanced than they were several years ago. Dr. Arocha is experienced in a wide range of hair transplant procedures, including follicular unit extraction, follicular unit transplantation, and ethnic hair restoration procedures designed for patients who have unique hair properties related to their specific ethnic heritage.

The options available at Arocha Hair Restoration, in addition to Dr. Arocha’s decades of experience and his talent for creating results that look natural, have helped many individuals achieve their hair restoration goals and feel great about the way they look.
