Anyone can be a candidate for hair transplantation. Factors such as gender, skin color, or hair type do not affect your candidacy, though they can affect the relative degree of success in results. For example, patients with thick and wavy hair will get a more dense look after the hair transplant procedure relative to those with thin and straight hair. We consider donor volume of 60-100 FU/cm2 as an excellent candidate and patients with 40 FU/cm2 or below donor volume as a promising candidate.
During the physical exam consultation, our medical team analyzes your hair type (straight, wavy, or curly), hair thickness (thick or thin) and the donor area with densitometer (FU/cm2). Additionally, we run tests to identify the baldness level (Norwood for men, Ludwig for women). Dermatoscopy is used by our medical team to foresee the future of the hair loss.
