FUE- Hair Regrowth Candidates
If you’re considering a hair transplant in Toronto, you might wonder if you’re a good candidate for follicular unit extraction (FUE).
It’s normal to assume that if you desire hair regrowth, you’ll automatically be a candidate for the FUE procedure, but many elements contribute to candidacy. All the pros and cons of the available choices will be discussed during your free consultation. The fact is that hair loss in men is prevalent, with up to 2/3 of men reporting thinning or balding before age 50. However, the rate of fall out and the pattern of baldness that each person experiences will be unique to them.
The good news is that both men and women experiencing hair loss can get their locks growing back healthier than ever. Hair balding and thinning can be effectively reversed through transplantation of healthy hair grafts.
Self-esteem and self-confidence can be severely affected by the loss and thinning of hair. A full, beautiful head of hair, is usually associated with youth, health and beauty — losing all that can negatively affect a person’s psychological health.
Though both men and women experience hair loss, men experience androgenic alopecia in higher numbers, and their classic pattern of baldness presents differently than for women. The balding of hair primarily on the crown or top of the head and recession of the hairline is a classic pattern of hair loss for men.
Androgenic Alopecia is the most common type of permanent hair loss, specifically in men, and it is a progressive condition. Women also experience female pattern baldness, triggered by the same genetic and hormonal causes, but their rate of hair thinning is referred to as diffused hair loss. The sides and back of a man’s head will usually contain DHT resistant hairs growing more densely, even after crown hair loss. For this reason, it is often easier to harvest enough donor hairs from men using these dense growth areas.
Women can be candidates for FUE as well, but the process of harvesting hairs without creating visible donor depletion can be more challenging.
