The Longevity Aesthetics and Laser Spa will be happy to help you determine if a hair transplant in Oklahoma City is right for you. Longevity’s Board Certified physicians and aestheticians will assess several factors important when determining a woman’s or man’s hair transplant candidacy.
I Haven’t Lost All My Hair But Do I Have Enough Left For A Transplant?
To be a good candidate for a hair transplant in Oklahoma City, you need to have enough healthy hair at the back and sides of your head. The reason for this is that the hair in these areas will serve as donor hair to be used during the transplant.
Are There Other Hair Or Scalp Characteristics I Should Know About?
Yes, the color, texture, and density of your hair will not prevent you from being a good candidate for a hair transplant in Oklahoma City; but certain qualities will make your transplant success more likely. For example, how dense is your hair? Hair density means the number of hairs to each follicle. Is your hair density thin, medium, or thick? Is your hair wavy or curly?
What is your scalp’s laxity? Scalp laxity means how much elasticity or movement your scalp is capable of, which is important when the hair grafts from your donor hair areas get transplanted into the scalp. And don’t worry if you have a tight scalp; there are scalp laxity exercises you can do to increase your scalp’s laxity to prepare for hair transplant surgery.
Am I Too Young For A Hair Transplant?
If you are a man under 30 years old, you may be too young for a hair transplant in Oklahoma City. Until a man reaches his mid-thirties, his hair loss issues are likely still in progress and a complete thinning or balding pattern cannot be predicted. This is the reason hair transplant specialists do not recommend this procedure for men younger than 30. However, there may be other hair growth therapies available.
If you are a woman, there are over two dozen medical conditions and too many influences that can be responsible for female hair thinning, hair loss, or balding. Regardless of your age, it’s important to consult a professional at Longevity before taking any action to diagnose and treat your hair loss issues.
Am I Too Old For A Hair Transplant?
Assuming you’re 35 years old, another factor to consider is the condition of your general overall health. Almost all of us develop age-related health issues. A hair transplant is considered minor surgery and is performed under local anesthesia. However, you will probably be expected to pass an electrocardiogram (ECG) to determine your heart’s ability to withstand the procedure. Other minor blood tests may also be required. If needed, the physicians at Longevity can create an individualized treatment plan to prepare you for your hair transplant surgery.
