What is the perfect age for an FUE hair transplant? A receding hairline or balding in the crown can happen at any age in life. They most commonly affect males in their 30s and up. However, some men start to notice a receding hairline in their early 20s. More young men are turning to FUE hair transplants as one way to fix this.

Hair loss can have a negative impact on your self-esteem, with almost a third of the male population citing hair loss as their biggest source of lost confidence. Over half of the men between the ages of 24 and 34 notice that their hair is receding. Almost 40% of these young men have admitted that they would consider a hair transplant as a solution.

One of the most frequently asked questions that we are asked is “Am I too young or too old to have a hair transplant?” The answer to that requires a little more explanation than just yes or no. Here are a few reasons why age isn’t always the deciding factor when it comes to eligibility for an FUE hair transplant procedure.

Is There A Maximum & Minimum Age?

FUE Hair Transplant

The short answer is no. As long as the hair restoration plan is responsible and takes all factors into consideration, it is possible for most people to get an FUE hair transplant at any age. In the past, it was necessary to have an age limit, but with the right doctor and by using the FUE procedure, it is possible to now perform a hair transplant on someone younger than 25.

Why Do We Lose Our Hair?

Baldness is most commonly caused by sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone (most commonly called DHT).
DHT is a by-product of testosterone, which explains why men are more commonly affected by a receding hairline or bald spot.

DHT starts being produced during puberty and involves a process called miniaturisation, which limits the growth potential of the affected hair follicles. This starts the process of thinning hair and is the most common reason why balding and recession begins.

How Does An FUE Hair Transplant Work?

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a procedure where hair is harvested from the back your head. These harvested hair follicular grafts are then implanted into the balding area to add a fuller look to the hairline.

This is one of the main reasons that age isn’t always a factor in whether or not you are a good candidate for an FUE hair transplant. As long as you have an appropriate amount of healthy and ready-to-use hair follicles available, proceeding with an FUE hair transplant should not be an issue.
