View Full Version : What's the earliest age you could have at HT?

I understand that anyone below the age of 25, most surgeons wouldn't recommend it. But the way I am going at the moment I'm going to be fully bald by the age of 21 (19 years old now, on finasteride but not really contributing after 6 months). So if you had lost all your hair before the recommended age, could you have at HT?

Well, below the age of 25 it would be too difficult to determine if your donor area is stable. So if you do it under 25 there is some risk that sometime after the transplantation the newly transplanted hair partially thins and makes the whole process worthless. However, a doctor should judge and perhaps this risk is not so high.
