At Bernstein Medical, generally, we don’t perform surgical hair restoration on patients younger than 25. This is because it is difficult to determine if the donor area contains enough stable hair to perform a hair transplant. We advise patients in their late teens and early twenties to first use medication and to postpone surgery until they are at least 25 years old.
Dr. Bernstein answers a question about whether or not someone can tell if they are a candidate for a hair transplant, or if they need to see a hair restoration physician.
