Today’s population, from all generations, leads busy lives. Hair loss, which is common at a very young age, is consequently a very common problem that they all experience. While women’s hair begins to thin during menopause, men experience hair loss issues in their early 20s. They begin to experience self-esteem issues and look older than they are due to hair loss. There are many causes of hair loss, including trauma, medical conditions, medications, dietary factors, and way of life. Hair transplants are not advised for people with Alopecia areata, diabetes, or high blood pressure.
The same is true for belly tucks, laser hair removal, and hair transplants: there is no ideal age to have any of these procedures. On the one hand, many patients wish they had undergone a hair transplant sooner when they have one and realize how simple it is. On the other side, you might not want to get going too quickly.
The following general rules can help you decide when to get a hair transplant:
1. You’re Age
Male pattern baldness can manifest as young as 18 years old and affects up to two-thirds of American men by the age of 35. Even if you are experiencing early hair loss, we typically do not advise having a hair transplant before the age of 25. Your hairline continues to form from ages 18 to 29. What you may perceive as a receding hairline may simply be what is referred to as a mature hairline, which is not exactly the same thing as a receding hairline.
2. Your anticipations
Your donor hair supply is quite constrained, as was already indicated. The good news is that the donor’s hair is from a region that doesn’t frequently experience hair loss. This means you don’t need to be concerned that you’ll have a hair transplant now only to have the hair start to fall out later. But you do need to think about how to use your donor hair in the best possible way.
You should consider which region you would be most satisfied with if you only had enough donor hair to cover one area rather than numerous. For hair restoration to be successful, having realistic expectations is crucial.
3. The Cost
We won’t make a false claim that hair transplants are inexpensive. Not at all. They are pretty expensive, therefore when you should get one may depend on how much you are willing to spend. Do you have the money for a hair transplant now, or will you need additional time to save? What kinds of 0% APR payment plans are available?
It’s a good idea to check different providers’ financing options and special offers while researching hair transplants in addition to their prices. For out-of-town patients, several clinics also provide trip packages. If you are from a region of the country where hair transplant costs are high, you might find that doing this will save you money.
4. The season
Regardless of the season you select for your hair restoration surgery, you’ll need to make plans in advance to get it scheduled on your calendar. It’s always a good idea to look ahead to the new year and plan the major events you aim to accomplish throughout the holiday season.
