Blood tests before hair transplant are done particularly for two reasons. One is obvious that some blood tests are needed before every surgery and to know the general wellbeing of the patient and also to see whether the bleeding and clotting profiles are normal. These may include CBC, prothrombin and activated partial thromboplastin time, blood sugar, viral markers and in hypertensive patients one should also get ECG done.
Second category of blood tests are to investigate regarding the cause for hair loss which may include Serum iron/ferritin profile, Thyroid profile, some tests regarding hormones and some blood tests may be required for auto-immune diseases.
