Your doctor will determine if you need a pre screening or a health check before surgery. If you are healthy, you generally do not need a special health check.
History and physical prior to a hair transplant
History and physical prior to a hair transplant is not necessary. We generally ask about your medical history and do a cursory examination but once we know that you are healthy, we can do the transplant
Is a health check up necessary before a hair transplant?
If you are in good health a check or blood work is not necessary. However, if there are any issues then a general check would be advised.
