How Old Do You Have To Be To Get A Hair Transplant?

How old do you have to be to get a hair transplant? What is the minimum age to get a hair transplant? If you're a young male then these might be concerns that you have. There's not really a specific number, but you should never get a transplant right when you start noticing hair loss. Typically, males will freak out when they first notice hair loss. Usually, the first signs of hair loss is recession in the temporal peaks. It's typical for for a mature male hairline to start forming during your early 20's. So, when should you get a hair transplant? You should wait (minimum) until you've had noticeable hair loss for at least a few years. So, if you started noticing your hair loss when you were 22, you shouldn't even consider surgery until you're 25 or 26. My only advice it to beware of the initial shock of hair loss. Guys usually freak out and act on pure emotion without really thinking the situation through. Hair loss is progressive, so where will you be in 5 years? What are your long term goals? Before getting a hair transplant you should start a regiment of Propecia or another hair loss product. Also, it's good to consult with a hair transplant specialist to get some information and questions answered. Do your research and know what you want to get out it in the short term and long term. Good luck!
