Can Patients with High Blood Pressure Have a Hair Transplant?
Which Factors Cause Hair Loss?
Hair loss has become a major concern for both males and females in recent years. Hair loss may occur due to three main factors:
-Presence of a male hormone,
-Predisposition to genetics,
-Age and life-style.
Patients need to avoid taking blood thinners, such as aspirin, 10 days before the hair transplant operation. While hair can develop and fall at any time, this cycle needs to be controlled. It is considered normal to lose up to 100 hair strands a day, but if you lose more than that amount of hair, you're likely to suffer baldness.
How Do We Deal with the Hair Loss?
Compared to over the counter drugs, hair transplantation is safe and efficient. Although there are several FDA approved drugs to treat hair loss they are not useful in every patient’s case as certain forms of medicine cannot be used in patients with diabetes and high blood pressure.
Hair transplantation works well for most patients, regardless of their genetic background, since it is a reasonably simple treatment. In addition, hair transplantation is the only permanent solution of hair loss. Contact us now and have a free consultation if you are worried about your blood pressure and hair loss!
