Is there an age requirement for hair transplantation and how does age factor in the procedure?

 

Dr. Deutsch of Bosley Beverly Hills, CA answers the question of age and how it relates to the permanent hair restoration procedure.  Dr. Deutsch further explains the expectations of permanent hair restoration.

Dr. Deutsch joined Bosley Medical in 2004.  Prior to joining Bosley Dr. Deutsch was in private Cardiothoracic and Bariatric Surgery practice in Long Beach, CA for eight years.

Bosley hair transplantation is a relatively simple outpatient procedure that is typically complete within a day at a Regional Surgical Office.  Local anesthesia is used for the hair transplant procedure, which provides patients the opportunity to read, watch movies, listen to music and even sleep during the procedure.

Generally speaking, the procedure involves taking hair from where you have more than you need and moving to areas of thinning or baldness.
