Who is a Good Candidate for a Hair Transplant?

Our surgeon’s consideration of your particular case (review your head photos) is the best way to ensure your candidacy as a hair surgery patient however some of the considerations of that our surgeons will consider  are listed below:-

Good Hair Candidates

  • You must have realistic expectations.
  • Exhibit standard hair loss  ie:  progressive loss of hair / typical hair loss is called pattern baldness
    Pattern baldness candidates are the ideal candidate for hair surgery.
  • If you have already lost a lot of hair we need to ensure the donour area has adequate supply of hair in order to complete surgery.
    ie: there has to be a significant amount of existing hair on the back of your head / above your ears
  • Typically patients with thick / curly hair will have the best outcome ie: the thick /curly hair more easily covers the bald area.
  • Patients over 30 years of age as at this age the hair pattern / loss is established
  • If your family has a history of hair loss – speak to us now !
  • Patients where baldness is in a particular spot and the baldness has been caused by some type of trauma to the area

Who are NOT Good Hair Surgery Candidates

  • Patients that suffer from Alopecia = uneven hair loss are typically patients with poor donour areas and not good candidates for surgery
  • Teenagers are NOT a good candidates for hair transplant
    Conducting a hair graft at ‘too young an age’ may mean there is not adequate donour hair available if any future surgery is required It is suggested that teenagers consult their local GP, in the first instance, to investigate natural approaches to hair loss or even medication
  • Patients suffering from some type of ailment to the donour area ie: they do not have a good supply of donour hair – commonly women
  • Patient where the hair is thin and not dense

What Happens During Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant surgery is a simple procedure.
You should not feel pain during surgery and you can very quickly obtain a dramatic improvement and be heading back home to an improved life.

As surgery is not particularly intrusive there is no need to have a general anesthesia. You will be provided with local anesthesia

  1. As with any surgery it is essential that area of surgery is thoroughly cleaned prior to surgery commencing
  2. There are two types of hair procefure – FUE and FUT. With both FUE and FUT procedures there is minimal shaving of the surgery areaWith FUE hair harvestings the surgeon may shave a layer of hair however Hair surrounding and above the donour area can cover the area that has been shaved. For small procedures it may not be necessary to shave head at all.
  3. Your surgeon will cut a strip of skin / hair follicles, from the donour area. The donour area is typically about 5  – 7 cm long
  4. The strip of hair, under a microscope, is then separated into small sections
  5. The thinning or bald area is treated so as you have hundreds of very tiny holes which implants can be placed in
  6. The small sections are then meticulously ‘planted’ in your thinning or bald area ie: in the tinny holes
  7. Bandages will be applied to your head prior to leaving
  8. After surgery you will be asked to wait an hour or so whilst medication wears off and then you will return to your hotel
  9. PST can arrange transport to your hotel or you can ask the doctors rooms to help you with a taxi
  10. Generally the full hair surgery will be completed in one session. If you require a ‘mega’ graft it may be recommended for the total surgery to be completed over two sessions
  11. Usually you will be prescribed antibiotics so as to avoid any infection post-surgery
    You will be prescribed pain killers to stop any post-surgery pain and usually also prescribed medication to prevent any head swelling, as a result of surgery
    You may be required to wear a ‘tennis head band’ , for a day or two, in order to also stop swelling
  12. Whilst you are overseas a follow up appointment will be made for you to return in a few days for hair wash and for your surgeon to check all is ok

How do I Choose a Plastic Surgeon for a Hair Transplant

  • Obviously you want a properly qualified and significantly experienced surgeon – Our surgeons all have significant experience and qualifications and we have had literally hundreds of successful surgeries with them over many yearsUsing PST has exactly the same cost as booking directly yourself hence we suggest you use our nearly 20 years of experience in Thailand and obtain our  assistance in finding one of Thailand’s leading surgeons for your operation
  • A major consideration when choosing a surgeon is to ensure he / she actually does the graft implants and not a technician Of late we have noticed many European companies and some Asian have doctors consulting with patients and technicians conducting the implants! Obviously a surgeon with years of study and experience will provide a better outcome Ask who does your implants before procceding !
  • Many patients assume the surgical outcome will be the same no matter what surgeon is used however this is DEFINITELY NOT the case as well as your surgeon’s experience effecting the outcome the equipment your surgeon utilise can also make a significant difference ie: Transection Rate (TX) is the rate of hair grafts being cut or damaged during graft extraction (removing hair graft from the donor area).

Industry standard at a recent International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery World Congress stated 10% is acceptable.
eg:         pay for 2000 grafts  =   1800 or more survive ( 10% damage rate)

We can access surgeons that use the latest WAW FUE SYSTEM which is praised as one of the best FUE Hair Equipment  available in the world.   It is called a hybrid punch which reduces TX rate significantly and produces excellent  graft quality. Quite simply it has a higher success rate as the instrument’s smooth funnel shape and overall design is gentler and less traumatic on the skin With our very experienced surgeons we been achieving a less than 3%  TX rate !

Non WAW FUE equipment            pay for 2000 grafts                         1800 or more survive ( 10% damage rate)
WAW FUE equipment                    pay for 2000 grafts                         1940 or more survive

The more surviving grafts the more dense your result will be and the better you will look

Hair Transplant Cost and Fees

The cost of your surgery will be vary according to the number of grafts you require. There is a sliding scale with the graft cost reducing the more grafts you obtain

On average surgery cost is $5- $8,000 compared to exactly the same surgery at home being $15,000 to $24,000 – a huge saving and equally as good surgery outcome as at home! Our cost estimate also includes all medications and consultations and absolutely no surprise cost.

If you contact us today we can provide an exact cost estimate for you and recommendation for surgery.

Hair Transplant Risk, Expectations and Recovery

  • Pain
    All patients will experience post surgery pain however this can be controlled with the anti- inflammatory & pain control medication that will be provided by your surgeon. With FUT surgery the pain is more than FUE surgery because method used in strip harvesting follicles.

Small breaks from surgery can be provided in order to assist you
  • Tenderness
    As with any surgery the surgical area will be tender for a while , some bruising and perhaps some temporary numbness. Immediately post surgery there may be some head swelling however this should be controlled with medication. You scalp will feel tight, due to swelling, however this should not last for very long. Pain should be controlled with pain killers prescribed by your surgeon
  • Bleeding
    In rare cases, after you have left the hospital/clinic, you may experience some head bleeding.  Treatment is similar to having a blood nose. Apply pressure for 15 minutes and it should stop as with all of surgeries anti inflammatory agents should be stopped at least 3 weeks prior to surgery ie: to prevent bleeding
  • Sensation
    Sometimes your sensation, in the donour area and the area of implants, will be temporarily lost. This is a common experience and it does not seem to bother patients at all as sensation should return.

You will generally experience swelling for about 3 days sometime 5 days and very infrequently you may have forehead swelling (note – very infrequent) Surgeon will explain the importance of rest or how you should lying in your hotel room You will find cold pack will help ( suggestion – bring some cheap plastic gloves with you , fill them with water and freeze them upon arrival so you have a ready ice pack. Most hotels also have ice making machines hence ask hotel upon arrival to your hotel)
