The ideal age for FUE in Miami
If you’re wondering whether you’re the ideal age for FUE in Miami, you’re right to understand that age makes a difference.
Progressive, androgenic alopecia affects plenty of men as early as their 20s. It may begin with the peaks at their temples receding, or thinning appearing on a patch at the crown. If you have male family members that went bald when they were young, you likely already know where your hair loss is headed.
Understanding the cause and progression of your hair loss is essential, but it doesn’t mean that you can rush off to get a hair transplant.
Age is a critical factor for FUE planning in Miami, but it’s not the only one. Your hair transplant surgeon will evaluate your case individually and advise a plan that ensures your long-term satisfaction. Here are a few factors they’ll consider.
Too young, or too old?
Technically, a person of any age could have a transplant. Here’s when being too young is an issue: if a young person in their 20s has a hair restoration procedure, the grafts will stay and grow where they’re placed, but the native hair which is sensitive to DHT and programmed to fall out, will continue to do so.
At the early stage of male pattern hair loss, it’s difficult to know at what rate the balding will progress and what pattern it will take. You could wind up with scalp space opening up behind your implanted hairline, asymmetrically, and unnaturally. The hairline could also be brought too far forward to maintain a natural appearance decades into the future.
We transfer DHT-resistant follicles from the back and sides of the head which means that they retain ‘donor dominance’ and resist shedding, even when placed at the top of the head. Meticulous strategy is required to blend these with the native hair and an eye toward the future is critical for young clients.
