Hello. Given your age and family history of hair loss I feel it is inappropriate to have a hair transplant at this stage. I would recommend medical treatments to curb further hair loss and try and keep the hair loss stable. After initiation of medical treatment we would review you yearly to perfectly gauge the best time to perform a transplant. A hair transplant is a step that take a lot of consideration and planning.
