Part 1: Do you need a hair transplant?

Hello and welcome to the ultimate guide to FUE hair transplants. In this five part series we’ll be covering every aspect of FUE hair transplants including finding the right surgeon, the steps involved in an FUE procedure and what aftercare steps to take. In this first part, the focus is on deciding whether or not you actually need a hair transplant.

Ok so you’ve noticed your hair is starting to thin out. It might just be very mild thinning at the crown or more severe diffuse thinning that’s occurring at a rapid pace. The common reaction to this is to panic and start searching online for solutions.

A hair transplant is often viewed as quite a drastic solution to hair loss. In fact, many guys dismiss it out of hand and don’t even consider the idea. However there are also guys on the other end of the spectrum – whose hair loss disturbs them so much that they want to take action immediately.

Key questions to ask yourself

The truth is that FUE hair transplants are not suitable for everybody. To help decide if you’re a suitable candidate, below are some extremely important questions to ask yourself –

  • How much does your hair loss bother you? – Because hair loss is often touted to be one of the worst things that can happen to a man, it’s easy to let this perception cloud your own thinking. The truth is that not all men react in the same way to hair loss. Some see it as the end of the world; others actually don’t mind the thought of shaving their head. Try to think about how you feel about it personally away from anyone else’s input.
  • How severe is your hair loss? – If you hair loss is very mild or has only just started then you’re probably not a good fit for a hair transplant. The reason for this is that a hair transplant will not do anything to prevent hair that you were already going to lose from thinning. This can result in an uneven appearance to your hair that’s less than desirable.
  • Have you given treatments a try? – If your hair loss has only just occurred then the first thing you should do is give proven treatments a try. Finasteride and minoxidil can be very effective at preventing further hair loss so you should always see what your results are like before you look into a FUE hair transplant.
  • Have you discussed it with your family and friends? – Hair loss might not be a subject you’re comfortable discussing. However, having a chat with close family members and friends can be a great way to get a new perspective on whether or not a hair transplant is right for you.

Testimonials

Just had the 3,250 FUE experience at Dr. Jones clinic. Finally followed my gut and made the move. Glad I did!! Treat yourself, get it done and stop perusing the HT websites…. I spent years clicking a mouse and hesitating, it’ll make you bonkers (trust me). Dr. Jones' clinic was everything you’d hope and expect regarding a delicate procedure like this. Glad I chose an experienced team and everything was done right. Follow up was excellent!!
