But every problem has a solution and hair transplant is the best way to gain that confidence back. But it is very necessary to consider some factors before hair transplant which are-

  1. Mental instability: In most the cases person looses hair because of huge stress and mental instability. So if you have such problem go to the psychiatrist for your treatment. But if their is no recovery than go for hair transplant.
  2. Medical History: Before going for the surgery discuss your medical history with the surgeon as it may be possible that your hair fall is happening because of consumption of some regular type of medicine which can be cured before or after the surgery.
  3. Reason behind the hairfall: You should be aware about the reason behind the hairfall. Is you are using any type of harmful shampoo,oil or any other gel.

Don’t get a transplant before you are 30. You need to have a good idea of how extensive your hair loss will be before starting down the road to surgery.


I agree with Fordham. I made this mistake myself. I also believe that it is vital to let one’s hair loss pattern fully manifest themselves before having a procedure. When this happens it enables one to plan a surgery and/or surgeries accordingly to maximize their results.
