I am a 67-year-old man without much hair
I am a 67-year-old man without much hair anywhere on my body and I am wondering how you determine where my donor site will be?
Patients who have significant hair loss over the entire scalp have a condition known as endogenetic alopecia totalis, which is complete hair loss of the hair on the scalp.
Patients who have hair loss on their entire scalp and body are generally diagnosed with a condition called endogenetic alopecia universalis.
In both of these cases these patients are generally not good candidates for hair transplantation procedures because of the fact they do not have adequate donor hair to be transplanted.
The only way to determine if you fall into one of these two categories is to be seen by a hair restoration specialist. At that point, a diagnosis can be made and it can be determined whether or not you are a good candidate for hair transplantation surgery.
