Hair transplant when done properly on the patients who are good candidates for the surgery yields the desired result. But one has to understand that all the patients who have hair loss are not good candidates or qualify for the eligibility of the hair transplant.
There may be certain reasons for the patient being not eligible for hair transplant like hair loss is very early and there is only thinning or the hair loss is so advance that there may not be any donor hair for the transplant to happen. In early stages hair transplant may not be required and only medications may serve the purpose like minoxidil lotion or tablet finasteride. In late stages when there is no donor then one may opt for body to scalp hair transplant if that is feasible otherwise use of hair piece, SMP may be advocated
