Is There A Minimum Age For FUE In NJ?

Hair Transplant in New Jersey

When considering FUE in NJ, many people ask, how young is too young? That’s because, for men in particular, hair loss related to genetic, androgenic alopecia can begin as young as 20. Just because it starts early, does that mean early intervention is better? With many things in life, “nip it in the bud” is the right approach, but that thinking doesn’t translate well to hair transplantation, and we’ll explain why.

You Have Limited, DHT Resistant Hairs

Men experiencing male pattern baldness may fall somewhere on the Norwood scale range, starting with receding temples, and leading all the way to a fully bald top. However, even in extreme cases, there remains a strip of hair at the back and sides of the scalp. The remaining hair tends to stay more or less untouched over time. Those hairs are genetically programmed to resist falling out.

The problem with assessing patterns and progression of hair loss for a young man is that it’s difficult to guess where it will go. He may lose most of his hair or just a moderate amount. It may recede quickly, or slowly over a few decades. This unpredictable quality makes it tricky to plan hairlines and to strategize donor hair removal.

Another Common Question For Those Planning FUE In NJ Is, Will My Results Be Permanent?

The answer is yes, and, it depends. That’s because the technique used and the quality/longevity of donor hairs extracted for implantation affect how long they’ll last in their new scalp location.

An ideal patient has some receding and thinning, yet he has had it for several years, and the rate of fallout has slowed or stopped. His balding is predictable and clear areas of unchanged, robust hairs remain. These will carry “donor dominance” with them when transplanted to the new zone. They wouldn’t have fallen out due to pattern baldness, and they still won’t.

However, A Few Critical Factors Must Be Considered Regarding The Longevity Of Results

  1. The continual fallout of native hairs
  2. The source of donor hairs

If a young person quickly rushes to undergo a surgical restoration and maintain his youthful, 20-year-old hairline, the hairs behind and surrounding it could continue to shed, leaving an awkward and unrealistic patch of implanted hair at the frontal line. The restoration must be planned to mature naturally and adapt over time.

Second, if the procedure is not carried out by an expert NJ FUE surgeon, they may mistakenly extract follicles from unstable areas where the hairs are vulnerable to DHT. It takes a skilled eye, in-depth knowledge and practice experience to deliver transplant results which look great now, and in the future.

Having said that, there’s no official age limit. Your surgeon will meet with you, assess your hair, talk about your goals and expectations, then make a plan you feel comfortable with.
