Majority of hair fall issue is related to the shedding phase and with a very short or absent of growth phase. And this mostly happens in the 30s and at times earlier. Here, we shall discuss some of the factors that will be a determiner as you plan for a hair restoration process.

Prominent factors that will help in hair transplant planning:

Age- The male pattern baldness is of the progressive type. When a man faces balding in younger age, it is unpredictable to what extent it may aggravate with time.  So, in the 20s or 30s, it is difficult to say how much hair fall will there be. The idea of transplant at this age will not give a desirable result and one must undergo another hair transplant treatment later.

Hereditary- The hair fall pattern can also be understood with the knowledge of pedigree.  It will help the doctor to understand the pattern, the future precautions to be taken and also can decide which transplant procedure will be helpful.

Hair fall pattern- To decide about the success ratio all depends on how much donor hair is left for transplant. This also leads to an understanding of the process that will be helpful.

Hair texture- The caliber, i.e. diameter of the hair shaft, hair color, curliness of hair and the scalp also acts as a determiner that helps in deciding which hair restoration method will best suit.

General health– Your general health condition is also an important factor. For instance, extra care must be taken for a diabetic patient.

The process includes the administration of anesthesia and everybody is not equally responsive to the same.  Before you get into the process, have a thorough discussion with your surgeon and disclose your entire medical history.

Psychological conditions – Indeed, some people suffer from baldness due to a psychological condition in which the patient has a tendency to pull hair and causing patchy badness.

Previous treatments if any- Many people try various remedies, like homeopathy and any other alternative treatments before deciding to go for hair transplant solutions. This will help your surgeon to understand your situation and help in deciding the best procedure that will suit you.
