Is FUE Right For Me?

ARE YOU TAKING HAIR LOSS MEDICATION?

If your hair is likely to keep receding, you might need to consider taking hair loss medication such as finasteride. It can help to preserve the existing hair to avoid having to undergo further hair transplant in the future. If you’re not sure whether finasteride is right for you, find out more here or speak to one of the surgeons at our FUE hair transplant clinic today.

Am I a good candidate for FUE hair transplant surgery?

FUE hair transplant surgery is a treatment that is specific and personal for each individual. Every patient has their own expectations about what they would like to achieve by having this treatment. Providing personalised treatment plans is what The Treatment Rooms London specialises in.

There are many different factors that will affect whether you are an ideal candidate for hair transplant surgery. This includes how much hair you have lost, your desired hair style, how much donor hair you have and your hair type.

Key Points

  • Where is your hairline at the moment?
  • How much hair do you have that you can transplant?
  • How old are you and will your hairline recede further?
  • Will you be able to prevent any further hairline recession?

Where is your hairline at the moment?

You may notice that you fall into the following categories:

  • You hairline has receded so much that you have no hairline
  • Your hairline has receded in the temples so you have an “M” shaped hairline pattern or a “widow’s peak”
  • Your hairline has receded to the middle of your scalp (between your crown and forehead)
  • Your hairline has thinned but has a general outline

In most types of hairline recession, the main cause is male pattern baldness (3). This process is caused by DHT (dihydrotestosterone) which causes the hair follicles to become weak and fall out. It is called a “pattern baldness” as the same pattern of hair thinning and balding appears in most men affected. The different types of pattern depend on how severely you have been affected by hair loss. They are summarised in the Norwood Scale as you can see in the picture.

By looking at the Norwood Scale you will be able to classify where your hairline is at the moment. If you hairline is at Norwood 2/3 then you should be able to bring your hairline forward to restore it your preferred position. If you are at stage 4a/5/5a/6 you need to think about how much hair you can use to create a hairline that you are happy with. You might better off with a hair transplant that gives you hair you can style over areas of balding. Your plan should be to restore your hairline to a position of Norwood 2 or 3.

Hairline design for mature hairline hair transplant

Bringing your hairline too low won’t suit you as your recede in your temples. Choose a mature hairline that will look good for the rest of your life. It also helps to save more hair in your donor area if you choose to have a second procedure down the line.

A Simple Process That Will Put Your Fears to Rest

We take every effort to ensure you to feel as comfortable as possible during the entire process. Our philosophy is to give each patient a personalised cosmetic care experience.
