I am 24 years old male and have already lost plenty of hairs. I think I have genetic hair loss or male pattern baldness as my father is also bald. One other doctor with whom I consulted told me that I have grade 4 baldness. But sir I think I am too young for the hair transplant surgery. Please tell me what is the correct age for hair transplant? Should go for it at the age of 24 years? or should I wait till what age?
In hair transplant, there is no hard and fast minimum age but is considered that you should not do hair transplant before age of 25 because the hair loss is not stabilised and you can lose more hair over the period of time and you may require undergoing further procedures to cover those areas and as baldness is the progressive process. You need to consider your limited donor area, also before going for hair transplant.
But, in certain exceptional cases, you can do hair transplant before the age of 25 like-
- If the person has advanced baldness is stabilized.
- If the balding process is affecting the person with his mental health.
- And, if the person has advanced baldness before 25.
In these cases, you can undergo hair transplant, but you need to be very conservative in your approach, not to overdo in hairline designing and planning of hair transplant considering that patient can lose more hairs in the near future. If you are thinking of hair transplant then you must research and gather as much as information about hair transplant.
Here are the two important resources I would like to share with you.
1. A must watch a Video guide on Hair Transplant. It covers all important aspects of Hair Transplant.
2. Is hair transplant right choice for me?
