Do I need any blood tests prior to a hair transplant?

 

The decision to order pre-operative blood tests depends on the hair transplant specialist. I recommend blood tests for CBC (complete blood count), PTT, INR (bleeding parameters) as well as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV.   Patients with any previous heart problems may also be requested to obtain an electrocardiogram or “ECG.”
