Hair transplantation in Young Patients

Young people experience a hair loss needs an instant solution for the present and future balding. Hair transplantation generally takes time and cannot be cured in a single hair transplant method. Your cosmetic surgeon needs to examine your hair and the pattern of baldness to cure hair loss.

Young patients expect to restore their old density back in one sitting. The cosmetic surgeons should not perform hair transplant in patients younger than 25 years of age for the following reasons:

  1. In young patients, it is difficult for your physician to determine the boundaries of the permanent zone of hair. The permanent zone that looks stable in the twenties can have a vastly different appearance over time.
  2. It is very difficult to determine whether the donor area will be stable over time in young patients.
  3. The earlier the hair loss begins, the more likely you will face baldness. However, it is difficult to identify the donor and recipient sites in young age.
  4. When the patient is young, the expectation may be too high when respect to the hair density. It is recommended to be patient with the results when you have had surgical hair transplantation.
  5. Young people will find it difficult to decide how that wants to wear their hair in future. Hair transplantation generally results in scarring that may cause them to wear the hair short.

For hair loss treatment in young patients, it is better to consult a specialist before going for any surgical treatment.
