Grey Hair Transplantation

Does age matter?

Is hair transplantation a young man’s game only?
Hair transplant commercials would have you believe hair transplantation is a young man’s game.  Scenes of muscular young men swimming, cavorting with comely women and working out all conjure up an image of youth and vitality.  The truth is, age has little to do with whether someone is a good candidate for hair transplantation.
Hair restoration surgeons have successfully transplanted hair in men who are more than 80 years old.  The most important factors in considering older patients for hair transplantation are the same as those or younger patients:  
Cause of hair loss
Physical condition on medical examination
Medical history
Family History of Hair Loss
Scalp condition
Pattern of hair loss
Adequacy of Donor Hair
Patient expectations
So don’t let a late night infomercial dissuade you from seeking advice from a hair restoration surgeon—after all, grey hair transplants grow as well as any other color!

Hair Transplants For Older Men

Yes, in many ways older men can be the ideal candidate for a hair transplant. The pattern and extent of their hair loss is more evident and in many cases will have stabilised. They are also often more realistic around issues of hair line placement and grey hair can provide the appearance of greater coverage than darker hair.
