At What Age Should You Get A Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant in Atlanta, Georgia is a successful surgical treatment that’s done to replace lost hair.  This procedure is typically performed to treat male pattern baldness; however, some women can have it done too. The surgery involves removing hair follicles from one part of the body and transplanting them in the balding area.

Hair transplants aren’t for everyone, and there is a right and wrong time to do it.

The Right Age for A Hair Transplant

Once you begin to lose hair, the process will take several years until your hair stops falling out. As such, being too young when you get a hair transplant will give you unpredictable results. Several years later you may need to have the procedure done again, due to having lost more hair after your initial surgery.

Jumping the gun and having a hair transplant done at the first signs of balding should also be avoided. Why? Because the condition could be temporary and a sign of a disease or infection, that needs to be properly diagnosed and treated.

The standard for hair transplants is to not have them done until you’re at least 21 years of age. However, in cases where hair loss is a permanent issue, not one that has occurred with age, the procedure can be performed on younger individuals.
