There are many reasons why someone might not be deemed “suitable” for a hair transplant. Maybe the hair loss is temporary and will grow back in time. If you have been affected by complete baldness and there is no donor site to draw hair follicles from, a completely bald head will be deemed not suitable for a hair transplant. If there are not enough hair follicles on the nape or if the hair is too thin, there may be no donor site to draw hairs from. If the patient has chronic telogen effluvium or alopecia areata, they are also unlikely to be recommended hair transplants. If you have been told that you are not suitable for hair transplantation surgery, here’s what to do.
There are a number of medical or cosmetic treatments to address hair loss that is non-genetic. What is most appropriate for you depends on the cause of your hair loss. Before making any decision, it is best to visit a healthcare professional, a dermatologist, or a hair transplant specialist to determine treatment options. Many times, wigs and hairpieces are recommended. Keep in mind that today’s wigs and hairpieces are far more advanced and natural-looking than what many assume. Now technicians can design pieces according to your preferences and needs, providing you with maintenance instructions to ensure that your hairpiece lasts for a long time.
