What Age Is Best For Hair Transplant?
Hair transplant surgery is performed for men and women who have experienced more noticeable hair loss not treatable by non-surgical means. However, it does require that the patient has some hair left on the sides and/or back of the head. This is most common when hair loss is genetic. Since hair loss progresses with age, patients often ask, “What age is best for hair transplant?”
The answer largely depends on the patient and what is causing their hair loss. Hair transplant surgery can be performed safely on almost any healthy adult patient who is a candidate. However, it is most common in patients between the ages of 25 and 45 since these are the ages where hair loss tends to advance to the point where hair transplant becomes viable.
Patients, both older and younger, could benefit from a hair transplant surgery. It is best determined after discussing it during a consultation with Dr. Sajan. While hair transplant surgery most commonly addresses pattern baldness, it can treat other causes of hair loss.
