Many men delay receiving a consultation with a hair loss specialist for fear of what they’ll learn. The only way to ascertain what type of hair loss you have and if you’re a good candidate for a hair transplant is a consultation.
Hair Loss History
Your surgeon will document the history and timeline of your hair loss to determine when it began, how its progressed, and any methods you’ve utilized for restoration. He’ll want to know if there’s a family history of hair loss and who has it.
Men who are good candidates for a hair transplant must be in good health. Your specialist will need to know if you have any health issues or take medications that could affect the success of a transplant. That includes conditions such as high blood pressure, heart conditions, and nerve or autoimmune conditions.
Your surgeon will need to know if there have been any recent changes to your health that encompassing acute or short-term illnesses, along with accidents. You’ll need to disclose any symptoms you may have for which your doctor may not be treating you such as dizziness, palpitations or tiredness, along with all medications and/or supplements you’ve taken regularly over the past 12 months.
Diet and Lifestyle
The surgeon will want to know about your diet, digestion and lifestyle. Be sure to relate if you have IBS.
Nails and Stress
Your nails can reveal much about your health and the surgeon will want to examine them for pitting, brittleness or ridging. Stress levels are also a factor he’ll want to know about.
Tests and Exams
The surgeon will take a sample and perform a microscopic exam of your hair roots. He’ll examine your scalp and blood tests will be obtained. It can take a little time, but all the tests and information will determine if you’re a good candidate for a hair transplant.
