Can I have a hair transplant if I have detectable or active HIV?
Unfortunately, you cannot. One of the reasons because you cannot have a hair transplant if you have untreated or active HIV is because in that case your immune system will be very weak; so if we perform the operation under these conditions, it will be quite dangerous because of the increased risk of infection after the surgery. Besides this, if there is an infection on the transplanted area after the operation, the grafts may die and the operation will fail.
If you have any query about this or another issue, please do not hesitate to contact us: at REGENE MEDICAL GROUP, we are always keen to help you.
