Weighing the risks

Your kidneys and dialysis are life-threatening and essential.  Hair  is not nearly as essential and hair replacement surgery is elective.  Plus, you want to make sure your blood clots properly and you can fend off an infection - so wait until the rest of your health is stable.  Hair is not worth the risk!Good luck!

Having hair transplant while on dialysis

if you are on dialysis, generally it is not a good idea . you need to get a clearance from your doctor before doing any kind of surgery anyways. If your doctor feels it is not to your benefit in your condition then it is not a good idea.
