I’m considering a hair transplant due to my receding hair. I’d like to think I’m a class II hair loss patient with an extreme widows peak, not Jack Nicholson yet, but give it two years. The thing is I’m 22 years old. What would you say is the average age of transplant patient? Is their a preferred age? Would 22 be to young? I’d like to get a transplant before everyone knows me as bald. Bad decision?
Fan of you’re work, thank you for you’re time.
No, I would most likely not transplant a 22 year old Norwood Class 2 patient. Hair transplants are much too early for a Norwood 2 patient and at such a young age you may precipitate more hair loss. You are probably not balding, but maturing your hairline. I’ve transplanted men your age, but their hair loss pattern was much more advanced.
