Anemia Patients Hair Transplant

When is Hair Transplant not Recommended for Anemic Patients?

Anaemia Patients Hair Transplant – Anaemia or iron deficiency in the bloodstream is one of the leading causes of hair loss. It is one of the most important components in haemoglobin, and it is essential for the production of RBCs that supply oxygen to the body cells. When there is anaemia, there is slow destruction and death of hair follicles due to the deficiency of oxygen. Many people wonder whether a hair transplant is capable of remedying hair loss caused by anaemia. Find out when a hair transplant for anaemia patients may be inadvisable. 

Severe iron deficiency

A severe iron deficiency leads people to suffer from tiredness, an accelerated heartbeat, leg cramps, pale skin, poor concentration and other symptoms. During physical activity, patients will suffer from a headache and shortness of breath. This means that it is better to avoid undergoing a hair transplant procedure while suffering from severe anaemia. It is better to opt for medical treatment and correct the condition first before opting for a hair transplant in Turkey.

Under 18 years of age

Although there is no minimum age limit for a hair transplant in Turkey, doctors typically advise against having a hair transplant before reaching 22-27 years of age, as the future hair loss pattern is uncertain otherwise. Patients should be at least 18 years of age before they consider treatment, and they should consult an experienced doctor – such as one at top clinics such as SHIFT Hair Transplant – to better understand whether a hair transplant is appropriate for their particular situation. 

Sufficient dense hair remaining

If you have thinning hair on the crown but find that your scalp hair is still thick enough, a hair transplant for anaemia patients might not be a good idea. This is because there will be insufficient space for introducing new hair. There is a risk of transplanted hair strands being pushed out by adjoining hairs, which can impede new growth. In addition to this, both thick and thin hair growing side by side will make the scalp look odd.

Insufficient hair in the donor area

Before a hair transplant, doctors at top clinics like SHIFT Hair Transplant are likely to evaluate whether there is enough hair in your donor site. During transplantation, doctors typically extract hair follicles from the back area of the scalp. The amount of hair that can be transplanted depends on how much healthy hair is left in the donor area. If complete baldness is a hereditary problem for you, a hair transplant in Turkey may not be the best option as surgeons will not be able to find any hair in your donor area for future transplants if needed.
