Hair Transplant for the Under 18

Is Hair Transplant for the Under 18 Recommended?

  Hair Transplant for the Under 18 - The modern lifestyle, including high stress, poor diet, sedentary habits, lack of enough physical activity etc, is a top reason for hair loss in men and women. In many cases, the negative effects can be witnessed even before a person becomes an adult. When medicines and natural remedies such as supplements and dietary changes are found to be insufficient in treating hair loss, hair transplant is considered. However, many people wonder whether hair transplant for the under 18 is recommended.

Risks of complete baldness

In case you have a hair transplant in Turkey too quickly - even before adulthood –and go bald, you will have insufficient hair to follow up on your hair transplant. If you need transplantation in the future, there will be little or no hair follicles to use for the process. There could be bald patches on your scalp. You might have a bald forehead and a hairy temple, which could be tough to fix. According to surgeons, those who begin to lose hair strands while in their early twenties on still in their late teens are likelier to experience baldness in the future.

Preserving the remaining hair

In top hair restoration clinics such as SHIFT Hair Transplant, surgeons consider it a priority to avoid falling out of the remaining hair strands before transplant. Doctors consider the extent of hair loss and family history, as well as monitor the status of hair over time. Medicine is offered to prevent falling out of hair.

Minimum age limit

As a thumb rule, surgeons at SHIFT Hair Transplant advise candidates against having hair transplant before they are 26 years of age. For cases of hair loss due to genetic reasons, 26 years is regarded as the cut-off age at a minimum. This age limit for hair transplant in Turkey is proposed as the donor sites in very young people can be slightly unstable. For surgeons, it can be tough to decide whether there can be a ‘permanent’ or stable zone on the scalp. Thus, the donor hair might not be stable at the spot where it is transplanted. The hair at the donor site will go on being thin. In case this occurs, the transplant scars will stay visible –which can complicate the issue. All of this can worsen the problem. This explains why hair transplant for the under 18 can be a bad idea and is not usually recommended by top surgeons.
