5 Real Facts Which You Should Know About Hair Transplant


This is Dr. Elnaz Kianipour and Today I am going to write about Hair Transplant real facts, which maybe 90% of hair transplant candidates do not know about them and also Doctors refuse to explain clearly to patients.

Before you go through the Hair Transplant Surgery you should know:

1. There is no Miracle after aesthetic surgeries, the purpose of aesthetic operations is shaping better appearance and reconstructing flaws on the body. No one can guarantee you that after nose surgery you will become Jennifer Lopez and after hair transplant you will get Shakira’s Hair Style.

2. Doctors work on what you have! If you do not have Good donor area on the back side of the head (between ears) then you are not a good candidate for getting hair transplant, either FUE or DHI! Or maybe you heard about beard and chest as donor sites but do not go after them if you are looking for satisfactory results because these places don’t give you good amount of hair grafts and Hair’s root is not as strong as the hair on the back side! Maybe you lose them in the future.

3. The third fact which you should know is even if you have a good donor site on the back side, it doesn’t mean you are a good candidate for hair transplant! Sometimes you have a good donor area on the back side of the head but bald areas and empty spaces on top and crown are so wide that the covering just in 1 session won’t give you such a dense hair. You should ask about the density of the hair from your Doctor.

4. I heard a lot 8000 grafts? Impossible! Unfortunately it doesn’t exist anywhere in the world. the maximum number of hair grafts which can be extracted from the back side of the head is between 3000 and 4500 grafts. Depending on the capability of the donor area and Density of the hair on the donor site. Then do not go after them if they offer you such an exaggerated amount of hair grafts.

5. DHI is the best method for Hair Transplant! This is not true or I can say kind of rumor which I heard too much, DHI is another technique of Hair transplant which is as Good as FUE but if you are a suitable candidate for DHI it can be helpful for you if not do not go after it! If you have some small bald areas which are on the front I recommend DHI but If you are completely bald getting DHI is absolutely nonsense.


Working in Hair Transplant Department for many years taught me some experiences which I really loved to share with people who have a desire to get hair transplants.

I hope this article could help you before you make a decision for getting Hair Transplantation.
