Hair restoration surgery can improve the appearance and provide a greater sense of confidence. For the right candidate, a hair transplant in New York can be the solution he or she is looking for. However, it is helpful to consider the options and to have realistic expectations before undergoing surgery.

It is good to keep in mind that everyone has only a certain amount of donor hair that can be moved to the areas of the scalp that are thinning. To better assess a person’s donor supply, the physician should examine the scalp using a densitometer – an instrument that magnifies a scalp section to measure hair density. Also, it is beneficial to try various treatments to stop the progression of hair loss before considering surgery. Some of the non-surgical treatments that are available include topical and oral medications and laser therapies.

The best candidates for surgery for a hair transplant are men and women who have lost hair due to cosmetic procedures such as facelifts, or from burns or trauma. A hair transplant may be right for men who have male pattern baldness and have been losing hair for more than five years, or those at class 3 or above on the Norwood Scale (a chart for diagnosing the extent of hair loss). Men who also are good candidates are those who have been balding for years, whose pattern has stabilized and who want to add some hair for a more youthful appearance.
