What Is The Best Age To Get A Hair Transplant?

If your hair is showing signs of balding, you might want to do something about it. 60% of men all over the world experience hair loss, with nearly two-thirds of men experiencing it before they turn 35! It is unsurprising then, that many younger men are now turning to modern-day surgical solutions such as an FUE hair transplant.

Here are some tips on deciding when exactly to get a hair transplant.

Not in your early 20s

If you are in your early 20s, it’s best to wait a few years until your hair loss is a bit more systematic. We know – if you’re 21 and have a receding hairline or lost some hair in general, you might want to resolve it now. However, waiting a few more years will help the surgeon to analyse the root of the cause behind your hair loss and make sure future results suit your natural hair.

Why is this?

If you get a hair transplant as soon as you notice hair loss, you may be acting pre-emptively before you lose other hair. If your hairline reduces more, the transplanted hair will not reduce with it, which can cause an uneven look. You will potentially need another transplant later on too.

Wait until you are 25+

Twenty-five is generally the optimum age for surgeons to be able to gain a strong understanding as to what the issues might be with your hair. At this point, the surgeon will be able to look at the patterns of hair loss and advise on the best transplant to create a natural look suited to you.

Hair treatments when young

If you are concerned about hair loss before the age of 25, do get in touch with us and we can advise you on what to do. Sometimes, younger people can have a transplant that will build on the density of their hairline, while others try various hair loss treatments first.

Getting a hair transplant can be life-changing, especially if you have thinning hair or you lack confidence due to not having hair. However, it is crucial to not get it too young – it’s best to wait until you are over 25, so the surgeon at your chosen hair transplant clinic can get the best idea of your hairline patterns.
