My wife passed away early last year and I just started to date on the internet. There are a lot of ladies out there, but my bald head makes me look too old, more like someone’s great grandfather. I want to be a lover and to be that, I got to look like that. Is there an age limit to get a transplant? I am essentially totally bald (except for my sides and back and scattered hairs in the front that seem to be holding on for dear life). Can hair transplants work for me at 84 years old?
Your question brought a smile to my face. I have done hair transplants on many men in their 80s and they were driven to have a hair transplant after either divorce or the death of their spouse. Men of all ages want to look young and looking young makes you feel young, so why not get your hair back and get your youth back? I have done surgery on many people with the most advanced hair loss pattern. Clearly, we are not all equal and some balding men just don’t have the supply, while others do. I always start by suggesting that you come in to the office to be evaluated. Rather than overwhelm you with lots of text, I thought I would point you to two patients who allow me to use their photographs. The first is a very bald man in his late 60s (happily married), before and after a hair transplant and the second is a man now in his 80s, that had one transplant procedure and started dating in his late 70s. The photos show his hair loss progression since the 1940s.
