Who can go for hair transplant and at what age?

Hair loss is a very common problem in both males and females of every age group these days. It subsequently causes baldness which is for obvious reasons a very embarrassing situation for everyone. Hair loss may occur due to genetic factors, hormonal imbalance, thyroid disease, protein deficiency or various other health conditions. Unfortunately, age is not the criteria for hair loss as even teenagers are facing severe hair loss issues with prominent bald patches, which become wider as the age increases.

There are many theories and suggestions for who should go for hair transplant treatment as that is the best and permanent solution for the chronic problem. One of the leading and most trusted Hair transplant doctors in Chandigarh – Dr. Kalia suggests that hair transplant treatment is not just a scientific procedure, but a skilled art. Many people have benefitted from it and at the same time, many people have seen disastrous results. That’s the reason why it is always suggested to pick a skilled, experienced doctor or a surgeon for hair transplant treatment.

Hair Transplant treatment is typically of two types:

  • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
  • Follicular Unit Hair Transplant (FUT)

Following people can go for hair transplant and take its benefits of hair restoration successfully:

  • Men and women having male pattern hair loss.
  • People who want a change in their hair line shape.
  • Patients who are facing hair loss after any surgical treatment.
  • Persons who want thickness in their eyebrows and eyelashes.
  • Males looking for mustache or beard hair.

Before the initiation of FUT/FUE it is important to identify some factors like family history of the patient, health condition, etc. This is helpful to fix the time for transplant. Another factor to be considered before starting treatment is to check the hair amount in the chosen donor area.

People with crown area baldness can be treated by medicine whereas people with front area hair loss get benefit from hair restoration treatment or hair transplant only.

If we talk about the right age for hair transplant treatment, previous hair transplant results show that older age hair transplant has more chances of successful hair restoration in comparison to hair transplant at a young age. Hair transplant during 20s to 30s is mostly not recommended by hair transplant specialists because it is difficult to know hair loss and baldness pattern and also extent of hair loss in future. Also, the transplanted hair will grow thickly and remaining may continue falling at some age which appears unnatural. Apart g=from this, if patients go for hair transplant at a young age, in future they may need some additional treatment in case of progressive hair baldness.

Recommended age for hair transplant is the age of 30 and above but it does not mean that other people are not eligible for hair transplant. However, if the hair loss is chronic and critical, there are specialized ways to go for it – provided that you are consulting an experienced and a deeply-skilled surgeon. There also are good medicines that are prescribed for good results in patients with hair loss at a young age.

It is also very important to check the hair loss pattern as risk factors depend on and differentiate with body to body. It is not compulsory that every lower age person has risk of hair transplant. It can be identified after consultation with top qualified and expert hair transplant doctors.
