To say the least, deciding to treat baldness with a hair transplant can be thrilling. The days leading up to treatment will probably be filled with anticipation and mixed emotions. And when the big day finally arrives, the last thing you want to hear is that you aren’t qualified for surgery. While most men and women will go through the preoperative phase with ease, there are some situations or diseases that may prevent or hamper hair transplantation.
Dr. Abdul Majeed Makkiya and the rest of the Dynamic Clinic staff are committed to ensuring that you are adequately prepared and understand the eligibility requirements for your surgery in order to avoid any unpleasant surprises or issues.
What Could Prevent You From Qualifying For a Hair Transplant?
Without a doubt, deciding to have a hair transplant requires a lot of thought, time, and money. And anyone considering this procedure should tell their doctor about any chronic minor ailments they have. The health conditions can affect their decision to have a hair transplant in Dubai.
Here are some of the diseases that can hamper a hair transplant and make you a wrong candidate, including:
There are two types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Insulin-dependent diabetes (Type 1) is a hereditary condition that is addressed with insulin injections or pills. Diabetes (Type 2), on the other hand, owes to an unsustainable diet and is usually controlled with a healthy lifestyle, and the individual may be given medicine to manage blood sugar.
If the condition is persistent and does not respond well to treatment, and if the patient has substantial problems with wound healing and blood clotting due to diabetes progressing to an advanced stage, hair transplantation is never an option for this patient.
Alternatively, if the patient is in healthy condition, a hair transplant can be performed with essential care, taking precautions before the surgery to prevent any unanticipated consequences.
There are several types of hepatitis, including A, B, C, D, and E. FYI, a Patient suffering from hepatitis C is strictly banned from receiving a hair transplant. However, in other cases, the patient can receive a hair transplant after the disease has been cured.
Aids patients are absolutely forbidden from receiving hair transplants due to the potential of a significant infection being transferred by the patient, and the patient’s weakened immune, as surgery could result in medical complications.
Hair loss and thinning can both be caused by thyroid problems. In general, hair problems induced by thyroid issues are characterized by hair loss that spreads throughout the body, not just the scalp.
But even if you have thyroid disorders, you can opt for a hair transplant. After consulting with the glands’ doctors and verifying that the hormones are stable, the surgeon will perform your hair transplant surgery.
However, there are some problems such as obesity, pregnancy, etc., that should not prevent you from having hair transplant surgery in the first place. Once you’ve addressed these issues, you’ll be able to safely achieve the results you want from your hair transplant procedure. For example, if your weight prevents you from having the operation, you could postpone it until you lose a particular amount of weight. Similarly, if you’re pregnant, delivering a baby immediately qualifies you for a hair transplant.
Is PRP in Dubai A Better Option?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a procedure used by specialists to speed up the healing process in various parts of the body. PRP in Dubai might be able to help you regrow your hair. For your information, this treatment is typically used when hair loss is caused by alopecia areata.
PRP injections are made by centrifuging one to several tubes of your own blood to collect the platelets. The activated platelets are then infused into the scalp to regrow hair.
