Recommended Posts

I have given my three signs below, but I would love to hear the communities thoughts, did I miss any? What do you guys think are the telltale signs of a bad candidate?

Thank you @Gabreille Nelson Mukhia interested to know if you think there are other signs of a bad candidate.

People who do not have adequate funds to complete their hair journey. For me it has taken years.

A lot of people also want a decent result yet will go for the cheapest options available. 

For a lot of us it’s not just one and done unfortunately.. for me it’s the cost of 5 Hts and counting.. 

The cost of many Hts/meds over many years is a pretty large amount of money.

Good question @Melvin-Moderator

Inadequate Donor supply to cover the thinning and balding areas would be a reason for a poor or bad candidate.  Certain diseases of the scalp, and/ or scarring especially on the RECIPENT AREA where  good flow is required to feed the graphs.

Another really important factor to keep in mind is one might seem to have a great donor but on close inspection miniaturization of the Hair follicles would be obvious.  DUPA   ( Diffuse unpatterened Alopecia )  where the donor area is especially not stable in any age would thin over time. If a Hairtransplant is performed that transplanted hair would succumb to the effect of DHT and the Hairtransplant would be pointless as the whole cosmetic effect would be lost.

How many of those 5 would you consider successful? What’s your NW rating, how many grafts have you done, how many different doctors have you had, and would you do it differently if you could?
