Am I a Good Candidate for Follicular Unit Extraction?

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is one of the most common methods used to restore the hair of an individual who is balding. It’s an effective technique for both men and women, but not everyone is a good candidate for the procedure.

FUE is a process in which hair follicles are transplanted from one area of the scalp to the other. The extent of the baldness is a factor in success. If baldness has progressed too far, you may not be a good candidate for the surgical procedure. FUE works best for men that want to maintain shaved or short hairstyles.

You’re a good candidate for FUE if you have thick hair on the back of your head, while thinning on the crown or near the front hairline. FUE is a solution for those with a number of hair loss problems that includes alopecia, decreased hormonal levels, and thyroid disease.

Good hair transplant candidates will need to be in good physical health and have thick, good quality hair from the donor area. Individual hair follicles will be removed from the back of the head and transplanted to the part of the scalp where growth is thin or has ceased. The denser the growth on the back of the head, the greater the number of follicles that can be harvested for transplantation.

Your age plays a role in the process. Ideally, the best candidate is over 25 years of age, since the pattern of hair loss has typically stabilized by then. It enables your medical professional to identify the pattern of hair loss.

If you have a type of hair loss that prevents natural hair from growing, such as burns or scar tissue, you might be a good candidate for FUE. The only way to know for sure is to make an appointment for a consultation.
