Candidates for Hair transplant – Does Age and Sex Matter?

When you start losing your hair then it feels like you are starting to lose a part of yourself. A thinning scalp is caused by many reasons like pollution, dandruff, excessive use of heat, direct sun exposure, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, wearing hat or helmet, improper sleep, unhealthy diet etc. And thinning of hair eventually leads to baldness.

Nowadays the hair transplant industry is advancing day by day, to solve our hair problems safely and effectively.

Candidates for Hair Transplant:

  • Does Age Matter?

Hair loss can happen as you age but there are many other factors which are responsible for it. In hair transplantation, it is not about the patient’s age but the stage, development, and maturity of hair.

The younger the patient is, then there will be more risks of an unnatural, irregular and odd appearance after getting a hair transplant.


Young people, those who are under the age of 27 are not good candidates for the hair transplant surgery. Because the hair loss isn’t mature enough, or the baldness will not be recognized, visible or prominent at this stage.

The doctor won’t be having any idea that how severe the future hair loss will be. So he won’t be able to satisfy young patient with the outcome of the hair transplant.

  • Does Gender Matter?

Hair loss in women is different in appearance as compared to hair loss in men. Women have a diffuse thinning throughout the entire scalp, while men mostly have restricted areas of thinning.

Those who have a pattern of baldness, decline of the hairline and a donor area that is not affected by androgenetic alopecia, are good candidates to get the hair transplant. Patients with alopecia areata are not good candidates to get hair transplant due to the unpredictable condition of their scalp because one never knows the level of the future hair loss.

  • Do You have Enough Donor Hair?

A good candidate for hair transplant has to have a stable supply of donor hair. Before the procedure, the trichologist will check your scalp, to find out whether your donor sites can cover the bald areas or not.

  • Tight/ loose Scalp?

The looser the scalp, the more donor hair can be extracted from the donor region and implanted in the recipient areas. And there will be lesser chances of scarring.

A patient with a tight scalp may not be a good candidate for hair transplantation because it may result in scarring.
