Hair Regrowth - Candidates
It is natural to wonder if you are a good candidate for hair regrowth procedure.
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.
Are you a Candidate?
Have you considered options for a hair transplant, but you aren’t sure what the procedure involves or if it is the right choice for you? Answer a few simple questions to see if you are a good candidate for FUE Hair Transplant.
Hair Regrowth for Male Hair Candidates
Other types of alopecia which can qualify for a transplant include Cicatricial alopecia, also known as scarring alopecia. This condition happens when inflammation or scarring of the hair follicle permanently prevents new hair from growing. This type of alopecia may also occur as a result of an illness such as lupus, causing extensive tissue inflammation of the skin.
Severe burns or trauma cause alopecia and these candidates can benefit from a hair transplant. FUE hair regrowth systems can successfully regrow hair in the eyebrow and beard areas as well. Men and women who experience hair loss due to excessive hair pulling and styling may be good candidates.
Ethnicity Factors for Hair Regrowth
Ethnicity can be an influential factor for those considering a hair transplant. Although men and women from all backgrounds can benefit from hair regrowth procedures, those with curlier, kinky hair often gain better results with fewer grafts transferred. The natural density of the hair in the donor area helps to determine whether someone will benefit from a transplant procedure.
Specialists should evaluate the characteristics of the hair to determine the best approach for hair restoration. Thin and straight, or coarse and wavy, all influence planning because these hairs can create different visual effects. Those of European ethnicity tend to have the most hair follicles, followed by Asians and then Africans. The number of hair follicles in a given scalp area plays a crucial role in planning the number of hairs that can safely be harvested for a transplant.
Those who have been experiencing hair loss for at least five years or more are the ideal candidates for hair transplant. We don’t recommend surgery for those who are quite young because if the natural hair loss process has not slowed, or the pattern is not yet established, then grafts can end up incorrectly distributed on the head when future balding proceeds.
Once you’ve been evaluated and determine that you could benefit from restoration of your hair, your career and even personal life can improve as you feel younger and more energetic. Quality of life, in general, improves when people feel more confident about how they look and the image they present to the world each day.

It’s also important to understand that to successfully reverse hair loss; there must be enough supply of donor hair. Donor area hair density is vital to ensure of optimal results. There is a limited amount of hair that can be used for transplants, which is taken from the back and sides of the scalp.

A good candidate for a hair regrowth procedure must be prepared to adhere to post-procedure restrictions which ensure the best possible results and reduce the risk of infection. Most patients can go back to their normal activities the day after their hair transplant, but it is still crucial to avoid swimming pools and hot tubs until completely healed.
Full daily activity can be resumed, including working out and sports regimen, within just a week following the procedure. Most patients are even able to wash and style their hair normally within only 5-7 days. Most people can take one week off work and get back to their lives quicker than they think.
