In general, there is no obstacle to perform hair transplant at this age However, in our experience, it is worth waiting a little bit since hair transplants at young ages tend to be less effective. We are aware that a situation in which there is thinning of hair is far from ideal, and this is why young men consider the possibility of transplantation at young ages.

Therefore, our professional recommendation is to wait a few years and only then execute hair transplant.
