New York Hair Transplant CandidatesHair transplant technology has progressed remarkably over the past decade or so. At the New York hair loss clinic of True & Dorin, we offer the latest, most advanced methods of hair restoration currently available, and are continually seeking out new technological breakthroughs that can make our treatments even more effective. More so than ever before, men and women who are experiencing various degrees of hair loss have a variety of potential solutions at their disposal.

Nevertheless, one of the most important keys to ensuring the most successful hair transplant results possible is matching the proper technique to the proper candidate. At our hair loss clinic in New York, hair transplant candidates are thoroughly evaluated during their initial consultations with our hair restoration experts. During these consultations, patients are educated about their options, advised of the treatment most suitable to their unique cases, and informed of the results they can reasonably expect. Setting reasonable expectations is especially important to ensuring that patients are pleased with their results.

If you are interested in learning more about your hair transplantation options, or you would like to schedule a consultation to determining your candidacy for hair transplantation, please contact our New York hair restoration clinic today.

Candidacy for Hair Transplant Surgery

As with any surgery, candidates for hair transplant surgery must be in good overall health. People under the age of 25 may wish to consider alternatives to hair transplant surgery since their hair loss will probably progress further. If hair is transplanted too early, further hair loss could lead to an undesirable, unnatural appearance that may be difficult to correct, especially if there is insufficient hair remaining in the donor area.

Aside from age considerations, the best candidates will have excellent density in donor areas. The denser the hair in the donor areas, the better the candidate. Also, the best candidates will have a skin tone that does not contrast too dramatically with the color of their hair.

Finding the Right Procedure for the Right Candidate

We offer hair transplantation using the two most advanced and effective techniques at our hair loss clinic in New York. Follicular unit transplantation is considered the gold standard for hair transplantation, and we are able to produce consistently excellent results using this technique. Most men and women who experience pattern baldness and have decent density in the donor areas will make suitable candidates for this procedure. Because lengthy scars are associated with follicular unit transplantation, candidates should be willing to wear their hair at least one-half-inch in length to conceal scarring.

On the other hand, follicular unit extraction is a minimally invasive hair transplant technique that produces little to no visible scarring. The procedure is more expensive than follicular unit transplantation, but is the best choice for candidates who intend to shave their heads or wear their hair at a very short length.

Which form of hair transplant surgery would be the best choice in your case? There’s only one way to find out for sure. Contact True & Dorin today to schedule your initial consultation at our New York hair loss clinic.
