Dear forum readers,
This case highlights an approach that many young patients opt for.
Question - When should I go for a hair transplant?
Correct answer 1 - when your hairloss process has stabilised or run its course.
Correct answer 2 - when you are fully aware that your hairloss process will continue and you will require further HTs to keep up with the hairloss. (you should not be having a rapid hairloss progression)
My advise to patients of all age groups, (and level of baldness), is to assume that their hairloss may progress further and they may have to go for further transplants. If you are not ready for that, you are not ready for your first hair transplant.
As a hair transplant doctor, I will not like my patients to carry on their life like an unfinished art piece.
Some famous personalities that are unfinished HTs in my opinion (they are not my patients) - US Vice President Joe Biden, Italian PM (or is it president)Berlusconi and former Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif.
