Am I Too Young for a Hair Transplant?

For most people, the teen years are the awkward ones - when our looks are just starting to grow in and fit the rest of our bodies and our hormonal changes make for things like acne to deal with. The teen years are also pretty intense emotionally as children progress into adulthood and start to realize the definitions of ‘normal’ set forth by society. This can turn into an especially delicate topic when there are weights, acne, hair loss, or other issues that don’t fit into the definition of the norm present.

The argument has been made that teens will grow out of this ‘awkward phase’ and into their true self over the next few years. This has left numerous discussions around going to extremes to correct issues such as cosmetic surgeries at that age. Many people sit on either side of the fence in the debate.

When it comes to hair loss and a family history of baldness though, is opting for this surgery early on a bad thing, or a good thing to stop it in its tracks? That was the point made in a recent article from The New York Post. The piece detailed how many teens today are opting for pretty pricey hair transplant procedure so they can enjoy a full head of hair. Sums totaling 17K were stated to have been paid.

Many of these teens admittedly had the bill footed by their wealthy parents, but according to doctors interviewed for the article, the number of young teen boys coming to their offices for hair transplants has almost doubled in the last year.

While the article does touch on the topic of young men having low self esteem and wanting to look better in societies eyes, it didn't provide more information on whether or not this is healthy to have done at this age.

The best advice, as always is to talk to a professional and have a consultation with a doctor to understand the underlying cause of your specific hair loss issues before deciding which treatment method is best for you.
