Both male and female patients suffering from pattern hair loss can benefit from this procedure. Female patients are often required to undergo several tests in order to rule out other causes for hair loss such as anemia or thyroid deficiency. Patients with hair loss in the eyebrows, eyelashes, or face region can also opt for this procedure. The only requirement for patients wishing to undergo this procedure has enough healthy hair in the donor area – usually the back of the head.
An article by Aman Dua and Kapil Dua reveals that hair transplant procedures are not recommended for patients suffering from spot baldness, patients with insufficient hair at the donor site (the back of the head) or female patients suffering from diffuse pattern balding, as this condition tends to affect the donor area as well, making hair follicles unusable.
