Why do you have to be over 26 year old to get a hair transplant?

By the age of 26, most men (not all) will have a hair loss pattern that will be evident. That is one of the reasons we don’t recommend hair transplant prior to the age when we can determine the hair loss pattern a man has inherited. A good Personalized Master Plan requires understand where the balding is going. With that knowledge, a doctor can measure the (1) donor density and the (2) hair mass index and with these two factors understood, the doctor can plan what has to be done and where grafts can be safely placed, assuming that the patients wants to build a long term hair loss strategy and how to keep it for their lifetime.
