To whom is hair transplantation performed? Who cannot be done?

The answer of the question “To whom can hair transplantation performed?” is: It can be applied to people who have developed hair gaps and whose hair gap does not close despite all the care and efforts. Considerations are; operation should be a risk for patient’s health and Care should be taken to ensure that the donor nape donor areas are directly proportional to the bald area.

Before the treatment whether the operation is risky for patient’s health or not checked by some tests. Considering the results of test, how to proceed is determined. If there is a risk for patient’s health, operation should be avoided. If there is no risk for patient’s health, first step will be taken to start to treatment.

Before starting the operation first hair analysis is done. In this analysis; information such as the condition of the donor areas and the bald areas and the quality of the hair are obtained. With this information, can the patient’s hair be transplanted at the desired level? Or is it below expectations?, the answers to these questions are sought. If the targeted roots in the donor areas cannot cover the bald area; either the patient must accept that there will be a second session or the operation must be abandoned. To get desired result in one session, donor sites must have enough and quality roots that will support the bald area.


Who can have hair transplantation: Except the babies and old people, everybody can have hair transplantation. But hair transplantation is more healthy for the people who abide by the rules described above. It can be applied to children after some tests.

What should people who are not compatible in terms of treatment and health and people with insufficient roots do?

People who is unsuitable for the treatment, can choose strengthen their hair for hair care. This cares can be different considering the skin and hair nature. It is recommended to search for the best care method and follow its practices.


It is not appropriate to people whose donor areas are not in a position to cover the bald area at the desired level. The operation should not be performed on people who are at risk in terms of health. With the pre-treatment analysis, information such as the quality of the hair, the clarity of the bald area, the status of the donor areas and how to plan is obtained. The important point is the, is donor area and the bald area which roots will be planted, support each other? This question needs a certain answer. If the donor areas from which the roots will be taken cannot cover the bald area in one or more sessions, it is not correct to perform this operation. In the case of the operation, there is a high probability that there will be too many sparseness and deformations in the donor areas.

Considering the analysis which is done before hair transplantation, patients whose health is not suitable for the operation, should not make it. It is important to not risk the health for an aesthetic appearance. Nothing is important than the health, should be always remembered.


For the people who is not suitable for operation, intensive hair care programs are recommended. With these care, it is aim to strengthen hair a little bit more. With periodic checks, it is observed how the cares works. According to these results, maintenance is changed or continued. Patient’s expectations should not be so high. Waiting a result like hair transplantation can be disappointment.

For the treatment to be successful; the roots to be taken from the donor areas of the patient and the size of the bald area should be directly proportional. Otherwise, operation will not be successful and patient will be disappointed. To prevent this kind of situation to happen, making planning perfectly is important.

Hair transplantation sometimes can be done to sparse hair and sometimes cannot. It can be decided as a result of the detailed analysis of the hair transplantation center that people with sparse hair can have hair transplantation.

The first thing to look at and pay attention to in people with sparse hair, is hair sparseness a result of shedding or is it a congenital condition? Because people who already have congenital and sparse hair can have direct hair transplantation and tightening if they want.

But if sparseness caused by shedding, then age becomes important and checked. We do not recommend hair transplantation to people who is in 20’s and have sparse hair because of shedding. Because we recommend alternative hair loss treatments to people who is still young and have ongoing hair loss. Prp and mesotherapy applications are one of alternative treatments.

If the hair is sparse in people over 30 years of age, hair transplantation can be done immediately. In addition, with hair transplantation, it is possible to have natural-looking dense hair by taking care of sparsely existing hair.

If sufficient data cannot be obtained here, it is felt to be directed to the beard section, and if sufficient data cannot be obtained there, it is necessary to turn to other parts of the body such as the body and chest. Hair follicles taken from the nape are transplanted into balding spots in more visible areas. Beards and hairs taken from other parts of the body, on the other hand, find their place in the invisible back parts of the hair. Thats why hairs which are taken from person is important. If a person do not have hair naturally, it is impossible to get roots from her/him. Hair transplantation is not possible when root cannot be taken.

Hair transplantation can only be done when doctors and hair transplantation specialist approved that there is no risk.

Before anesthesia, the person concerned is examined by an anesthesiologist, and if the person is determined to be suitable for anesthesia, anesthesia is administered. This applies not only to hair transplantation, but also to all surgical operations.

Some people’s body habit may not be suitable for anesthesia. Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure and is extremely painful without anesthesia.
