Hair loss does not only happen to older men, but to young adults, as well. And the psychological impact of hair loss for young adults is much more traumatic. And that is why a Turkey hair transplant can be effectuated on them, too, helping these young patients to regain their confidence and self-esteem and lead normal, successful lives.

Important aspects of hair transplants in Turkey for young patients

After having a thorough consultation with the patient, our hair transplant surgeons in Istanbul will take into consideration all the aspects of performing a hair restoration at such a young age. There are many aspects to be taken into account before the procedure, like:

•    The hair loss progression and pattern are not fully developed at a young age;
•    A hair restoration might be postponed until the progression and pattern of the hair loss are entirely revealed;
•    Performing a hair transplantation at an early age might not look natural later in the patient’s life;
•    If a hair restoration is performed at an early age, such procedures are necessary to keep a natural look in the future as well.

However, if our surgeons will find it appropriate, they will help the young patient to restore his or her hair by performing a hair transplant. Sometimes, this might consist of just a smaller restoration meant to improve the young adult’s temporal frontal hair line.

In other cases, our specialists might suggest a larger hair transplantation which might consist of more hair grafts.

Medical treatments for young patients in Turkey

Before undergoing a hair transplant in Turkey, a young patient – and by that, we refer to one in his early twenties – is recommended to try medical treatment first. An option would be to try non-surgical treatments consisting with minoxidil and finasteride, which are the only hair restoration drugs approved by the F.D.A. (Food and Drug Administration) in the U.S.

These treatments can, sometimes, slow the hair loss and make the hair look thicker because they add density to the miniaturized hair follicles. Slowing the hair loss progression before and after 21 years of age improves the chances of a successful hair transplant later in the patient’s life.

If you are a young male who experiences hair loss, we can help you establish the most appropriate treatment. Please get in touch with our hair transplant clinic in Istanbul.
