How Old Do You Have to Be to Get Hair Restoration?
There are many factors to consider when contemplating a hair transplant. Age is one of them. Typically we expect patients to be at least 25 years old before considering them for a hair transplant.
For young patients, it’s hard to predict future hair loss. This makes it difficult to map out a plan that will look appropriate 10 or 20 years from now. Alternatively, patients in their late 40’s or 50’s have probably established a pattern of loss that’s much easier to predict and treat.
There are some circumstances where a young person is a good candidate. In this particular case, Josh, who is only 22 years old, was completely bald in the front. Restoring that much hair in an empty area will continue to look natural throughout the life of the patient. This was a life changing procedure for him.
Don’t Delay! Hair Loss Can Happen Quickly!
The first time Josh came to PAI Medical Group was 2 years before his procedure. At that time he opted not to do anything about his hair loss and as you can see by this photo hair loss progressed quickly. Even if you don’t have a hair transplant, there are many non-surgical things you can to do prevent your hair from falling out. It’s super important to begin caring for your hair because once it’s lost, it’s gone forever. The ultimate goal is to keep what you have and we can help you with that.
Josh’s Hair Loss Progression in One Year’s Time
Hair Restoration for a Young Man
Josh is only 22 years old. At this age, patients aren’t always candidates for a hair transplant. Luckily for Josh, hair surgery was an option and the good news is, the transplanted hair is permanent. It will last as long as it would have in the donor area which is typically a lifetime. As you can see by the pictures and video, his entire frontal hairline was rebuilt and it makes a huge difference in his appearance.
