When it comes to hair loss in men, it’s common knowledge that with age comes a greater chance of a guy losing his hair. However, just because it’s statistically likely that hair loss will occur after a certain age, doesn’t mean it’s a sure thing. Everyone has different genetics, which is why some guys start balding in their teens while others keep a full head of hair into their 50s and upwards.

By the age of 35, two thirds of men will experience some degree of hair loss, with that number rising to 85% of men by the age of 50. Although a lot of guys start losing their hair in their 20s and 30s, the ideal time to get a hair transplant isn’t related to age. This is because hair loss varies a lot, both in its severity and the type of thinning.

When is the ideal time to get a hair transplant?

Although the ideal time to get a hair transplant isn’t related to age, there are other factors that determine when the best time to get a hair transplant is. To put it simply – the best time to get a hair transplant is when your hair loss has stabilized. This is why guys in their 20s who’ve only just starting noticing some hair loss are often advised against getting a hair transplant immediately.

The reason it’s important for your hair loss to stabilize before getting a transplant is because any further hair loss in areas of the scalp that haven’t been treated will not be prevented. Because of this, getting a hair transplant too soon can result in a patchy appearance that’s far from desirable.

What can I do to stabilize my hair loss?

If you’re unable to get a hair transplant immediately then you might be worried about losing too much hair until you can. You shouldn’t panic though. There are proven treatments now available to help slow down the progress of male pattern balding.

The most effective solution for hair loss in men isFinasteride (Propecia). It is proven to inhibit the production of DHT in the body, which is the primary culprit of thinning hair in men. It’s effective at stopping or at least slowing down hair loss for the majority of men.
