What Are The Limitations Of Hair Transplantation?

Hair transplant limitations ?  What factors affect the success of hair transplant?

The basic logic of hair transplant; hair is taken from an aesthetically suitable area (donor) that will most likely not to be affected by hair loss and is transplanted to the desired area. The major limitations of hair transplantation are the patient’s expectations, the sufficiency of the donor hair, the size of the bald area, the cause of hair loss, experience of the surgical team and the possible medical risks.

In female patients, the main factors that limit hair transplant are; the cause of hair loss, the prognosis and donor hair sufficiency. Female patients have different expectations from male patients. However young patients pose another more important limitation; they have very high expectations yet their hair loss is not stable. This is a group that should be carefully evaluated in terms age and expectations.

Hair transplant in cicatricial alopecia cases is mostly limited by indications. Currently there are no precise conclusive judgments with regards to primary cicatricial alopecia cases. Theoretically, you can detect if the disease is chronic or not by monitoring the relapses. Unfortunately, there is no alternative treatment method for the patients to regain back the lost hair. Secondary cicatricial alopecia is caused by factors like burns, accidents, trauma and surgery. In such cases, hair transplant can produce satisfactory results if there is adequate blood supply in the scar tissue and sufficient donor hair.

Other possible limitations which should be carefully evaluated before surgery; allergic reactions to medication used during the surgery and other side effects. The hair transplant candidate should also be evaluated in terms of local anesthesia as well as bleeding disorders. Increasing the capacity of the donor by hair cloning will eliminate the biggest limitation in hair transplantation. Additionally, another factor that can help eliminate this limitation is use of alternative donor hair from the beard, chest and legs.
