Hair loss affects people in different ways; some find it easier to deal with and doesn´t bother them, whereas for others it can create a great trauma in their lives. Whether to deal with hair loss is very personal. There is no right or wrong when deciding to undergo hair restoration, or visa-versa; but if you do wish to tackle your hair loss it is important to research and understand what is possible, and what is not.
As hair transplantation improves and provides more and more natural results many look to this as their first option; as it is your hair and permanent, but it should not be taken for granted it is right for everyone. There are many factors that make a suitable hair transplant candidate, age, hair quality, your hair loss stage and potential hair loss stage to name a few. Then there are your personal goals and whether they can be achieved.
Assuming you make a good candidate many times there is a compromise in your goals between you and the doctor; this can be due to more technical details such as your hair characteristics and donor hair density. It is important to understand that a hair transplant is not a miracle cure, it will not stop future hair loss, and it is just the movement of genetically strong hair from one area of the scalp to an area of hair loss.
You should not rush into this decision, research clinics, talk to previous patients and try to see patient results in person. This will allow you to see a hair transplant result in reality, the density that can be achieved, the placement of the hair and the coverage that can be achieved. On some occasions it may be better to wait before undergoing a hair transplant, especially if you are young and your hair loss is minor. There is no way to determine your future hair loss pattern.
Before making your decision research and take your time, make your decision based on reality and not emotionally
