Best Age for a Hair Transplant
"What's the best age for a hair transplant?" is a common question asked by the media.
Generally speaking, older men are considered slightly better candidates for transplants than very young ones. This is because it’s beneficial for the surgeon to fully visualize and understand your genetic balding pattern, which oftentimes hasn’t materialized yet for men in their early or mid 20s.For slightly older men, the surgeon can properly plan a procedure that best suits your genetic balding pattern, and will suit you better as you age. This ensures the most positive result for the long-term. Pharmaceuticals, like Rogaine and Propecia, can also be used by males over the age of eighteen. In general, these medications, seem to be more effective at preserving existing hair than growing new ones, and are mostly beneficial for younger men in the early stages of hair loss.
