Sir what will be the minimum age for hair transplant please can u ans me sir

Question

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?

Answer

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 stabilized 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 a hair transplant.

But, in certain exceptional cases, you can do hair transplant before the age of 25 like:

  1.  If the person has advanced baldness is stabilized.
  2.  If the balding process is affecting the person with his mental health.
  3.  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?

I hope this helps your query. Still, if you need any help, you can contact my assistant on +91-7888091119  or write to me on the same mail.

FUE Hair Transplant: Advanced Hair Transplant Method

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Technique is the most advanced hair transplant technique.

FUE method of hair transplant is one of the most popular & advanced hair loss, male or female pattern baldness treatments offered at HairMD- hair transplant clinic in Pune with best, real and amazing hair transplant results. In the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Technique of hair transplant, each hair follicle is individually harvested from the scalp, using high precision, circular punches. It is then immediately transplanted back on bald patches on the scalp. This technique leaves small linear scars and is not very painful, which used to be the case previously with the strip harvesting or FUT hair transplant Technique. FUE is a highly advanced hair transplant technique. In this technique, Follicular units of hair are harvested individually from the donor area unlike the Strip Method, where a strip of tissue with hair follicular units is excised from the back of the scalp. Here instead of taking the Strip, small, precise motorized or manual punches are used to excise each hair graft individually and then transplanted.

The hairs which are to be used for transplantation can be taken from-

  1. Donor area for hair transplant: The back & sides of the head (Occipital and Temporal Areas) - The hair in these areas remain unaffected by baldness. They are not susceptible to the action of DHT (DiHydroTestosterone), and thus don’t fall off. Hence they offer a good source of hair to be transplanted in the bald area.
  2. Beard for hair transplant - People with a good growth of beard hair have the added advantage of using the beard for hair transplant. Since the beard hairs are thicker and coarser than the scalp hair, mixing them with the scalp hair, gives us a great density and good coverage of the head. Once expertly mixed with the hair from the head, it is very difficult to distinguish them from the head hair when they start growing.
  3. Body Hairs for hair transplant - Chest, Axillary & Pubic Hair. As a last resort, when a large number of hairs are required to be transplanted, like in extreme severe baldness, we can also effectively use hair from the rest of the body to be transplanted on the head.

In order to achieve the best & real Fue hair transplant results-

And to be scientifically perfect, the bundles of hair that are harvested from the head are removed from the scalp and examined under a digital microscope before being transplanted. They are separated according to the number of hairs in each bundle.

Our hair on the head usually grows in bundles of 1’s, 2’s, 3’s & 4’s. These bundles are known as follicular units or hair grafts. It has been proved that the best & the most real looking hair transplant results are obtained when these hairs are transplanted, just as they are, in groups, without separating them. Also, the most natural & real hair transplant results are obtained, when the hairs are placed in the scalp, exactly the way they first grew on our head at birth. The front of our hairline is made up of single hair follicular units, the transition zone has a mixture of double hair and single hair follicle units and the rest of the hair behind that is a blend of all remaining hair. When this original pattern is not consciously followed by the doctor, the results are not natural & real and patients are disappointed. The success of hair transplant also depends on the angle and direction of the naturally growing hair. These are important facts that patients need to understand, before going in for a hair transplant. Normally, the hairs present in the hairline grow at a very acute angle of 15-20 degrees to the skin of the head. As we progress from the hairline to the crown, this angle subtly increases, eventually the hair becoming almost vertical in the crown. This gradual change is very subtle and for the transplant to look perfectly natural, this has to be kept in mind by the doctor.

The direction of the growing hair is also equally important. As we move from the center to the sides of the head, the direction changes from straight to sideways. The point at which this change starts happening is unique to every person and it is for the doctor to recognize this during the consultation. Following the natural direction of hair during hair transplantation, is one of the key factors which helps a doctor in giving a natural and artistically pleasing look to the hair transplanted.

In a hair transplant, the whole concept of designing the hairline & crown is based on the above two factors. When the doctor has a thorough knowledge of these rules of hair architecture, he is able to create the perfect hairlines & crowns and also add to the existing ones. HairMD India is the only one that considers all these factors, making it the most trusted name among the hair transplant clinics in Pune.

As a take- away message, there are 3 key points about FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplant to bear in mind:

  1. There is hard to see scar on back of head.
  2. There is minimal pain. The most you would feel would be that of an ant bite, during the administration of local anesthesia, after which there is minimal feeling of pain at all. During the surgery, you can read, converse with the doctor and staff, take a snack or lunch break, and return home in the evening without any problem. Also, post hair transplant pain in minimal & you can start working from next day with little precautions.
  3. Delightful and real looking results, and recovery within a very short period. You are ready for work the next day.
