How to get a hair transplant at an early age
When we think of hair transplant surgeries, we usually think of older men between the ages of 30 to 50. However, hair loss is more common than you think in younger men even below the age of 25. Losing hair at such a young age can be an especially traumatic experience as you are at a vulnerable stage of your life where your peers hold extra value and judgment based on your outer appearance. It is a time when you wish to court the opposite sex and enjoy your youth. However, for some this may be a haunting period spent under a cap.
Doctors have generally been apprehensive of performing hair transplant surgery on younger men because the earlier a man starts getting bald chances are that at an older age he would be very bald. Therefore, to use the donor hair at an early age may mean not having enough hair reserved for the coming years. Younger men may also tie unrealistic expectations with getting a hair transplant. They may assume that they would have a full set of thick hair with a full hairline such as their friends do who are in their teenage. Men between the ages of 30 to 50 would be relatively more satisfied, as their hair would be in the same density as their friends.
If a younger man does not witness the kind of unrealistic results he was hoping for he may become disappointed. Therefore it is important to have an in depth consultation session with the doctor where the young man is made aware that his hair would be restored but to assume that he would get an infinite amount of hair on his head is improbable. Having a hair transplant surgery at a later age would promise to have hair conserved for you when you are old.
There are also pros to getting hair restoration done before the age of 25. Most of these patients are young and healthy; they are not on any medication, they are often optimistic and energetic and carry the vigilance to make the commitment for what may end up being a continuous and repetitive treatment. Getting a hair transplant at an early age also means rebuilding confidence and self-esteem in your prime. If you wait too long for it, by the time you are 30 you may have low self-esteem irreversibly ingrained in you.
Although, if you are young, you may need more consultations and a more careful treatment to prevent from the any long-term problems taking place.
