Hair transplant at age 70

There are a couple factors I look at when determining a good candidate for transplant.  Is the patient in good health, what medications are taken.  Also, does the patient have reasonable expectations and donor to accomplish his goals.  FUE procedures are very easy to recover from and most patients are good candidates for the procedure.  I recommend you speak with a hair loss expert to evaluate your health and goals.

Age 70 Transplant

Nope! As long as you are in good health otherwise there's no problem with getting a hair transplant at a later age. Would probably recommend FUE over FUT simply because it's a bit less taxing on the body during the recovery process but that's really the only concern.

Hair transplant at the age of 70

Your age alone is not a contraindication to hair transplantation. Along with our anaesteshiologist, we perform an examination of our patients medical backgrounds in order to obtain all possible information. If it turns out the patient has any kind of medical issues, we make sure that they receive their required treatments in order to prepare them for the procedure.

If you are in good health, there is no age limit to having a hair transplant surgery.

If you are in good health, there is no age limit to having a hair transplant surgery.  It is best to see a doctor to see if you would be a good candidate for surgery.

Age and hair restoration

As long as you are in good cardiovascular shape, are able to climb 2 flights of stairs without any shortness of breath, and have a donor region that could be used to harvest grafts from to restore areas of your scalp, you would be a good candidate.  

Would recommend an FUE harvesting approach as it is much less invasive,

Of the 15,000 surgeries that either I or my group have done, there were many men and a few women between  the ages of 70 or 94

a hair transplant at an age around 70. Nowadays we are living longer than ever and there is absolutely nothing wrong in wanting to get your hair back. We have had patients who are in their mid 80s do hair transplants. As long as you have no medical issues to worry about I would suggest to pursue it.
