Am I Too Old for Hair Transplant Surgery?July 6th, 2006
Q: Is there ever an age where you are too old for a hair transplant?
A: One can be too young for surgical hair restoration, but not too old (as long as one is in good health medically).
Older people generally make excellent candidates for hair transplantation since their expectations are generally more realistic and the future extent of their hair loss more predictable than in those who are younger.
We have successfully treated a number of people in their 80s. In spite of the fact that their spouses and friends asked them, “What do you need a hair transplant for at your age,” the patients were uniformly happy that they did the surgery.Related Posts:
