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
Family History of Hair Loss
Pattern of hair loss
Adequacy of Donor Hair
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!
