Avoiding Pitfalls in Hair Transplantation

In “Avoiding Pitfalls in Hair Transplantation,” Dr. Bernstein alerts patients to potential problems when considering a hair transplant. Over the past decade many technical advances have been made in the field of surgical hair restoration, but problems still remain. One of the most significant of these is recommending hair transplants for persons who are not good candidates for surgery.

The most common reason that a person should not proceed with surgery is that the person is simply too young and their hair loss is too early. Most people who are in the early stages of balding are best treated with medications. When a person is young, their hair loss pattern is often too unpredictable to properly plan a surgical procedure. In addition, young persons may have expectations that are too high – often demanding the density and hairline of a teenager. A hair transplant can rarely accomplish this goal. For some, time is needed to facilitate making a level-headed decision in the very emotional issue of managing one’s hair loss.
