What is the best age to get a hair transplant?
Am I too young for a hair transplant? There is no age limit for hair transplant and the best age depends on the individual but as MCAN Health we do not encourage the young candidates to have a hair transplant unless their hair loss is diagnosed as needed by our hair transplant experts. We would like to apply the treatment only when it is necessary.
Will I be able to communicate in English?
Yes. All MCAN Health surgeons speak English very well. Also, there will be an English speaker host with you at all times. Moreover, we have bilingual hosts who can speak fluent German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian and Arabic.
Does the transplanted hair fall out?
No, the transplanted hair is definitely permanent because the donor area is resistant to DHT, the hormone that is composed out of testosterone and responsible for male hair loss. As the hair follicles extracted from the donor area are also resistant to DHT, the transplanted hair carries the same resistance. If DHT is prevented as such, there will be no possibility for hair loss.
Will I need a second hair transplant?
There is no simple answer to this question. It may change from person to person and method to method. To get a better idea, you can get a free consultation from our hair transplant experts.
