Dr. Deutsch: There is no hard set cut off as an age limit for hair transplantation although we are very, very careful in patients under the age of 18, we want them to be fully mature, we want to see what the pattern is evolving into that the most important thing is to make sure that the patient has proper expectations about what their hair loss is going to be in the future, a lot of young patients want a very low, very hairline just like it was when they were kids and that's not going to be realistic. So it's important as a physician to construct a hairline that's going to match what their hair loss expectation is going to be as they get older.
