If I Am Too Bald for Hair Transplant Surgery Can Someone Else Donate Their Hair to Me?

Question:

After hair transplant surgery will I be able to cover all of my bald scalp and, if I don't have enough hair, who will be the donor?

Answer:

There are many factors to consider when evaluating a patient for hair transplant surgery. The degree of coverage one can expect depends upon the extent of the hair loss, density and quality of hair in the donor area and scalp laxity among other things. However, if you lack the donor supply for adequate coverage, you will not be a candidate for surgery as hair may not be donated from another individual.

If you are interested learning more about hair transplant surgery, I recommend that you consult our interactive map and locate prescreened quality hair restoration physicians nearest you. You can even schedule free online consultations with the physicians of your choice.
