Q6. Is there a lower age limit for a hair transplant?

A6. Hair transplant patients can range in age from 21 to 80 but surgeons prefer young men to wait until they are older (around 30).

The reason for this is that if hair loss is at an early stage it can be difficult to predict how it will advance. A surgeon will prefer to monitor the hair loss over a period of time until it reaches the stage where treatment is necessary. Q7. Does a hair transplant hurt?

A7. No. You will be given a local anaesthetic before the procedure and a mild sedative as well so this will prevent any pain.

Many patients say that they can feel a tugging or pulling during surgery but not any pain. Micrografting can be painful but the surgeon will spray an anaesthetic onto the treated area during the procedure to ease this.

Painkillers can deal with any pain or discomfort after the surgery.
