One of the UK’s leading hair transplant surgeons is calling for age restrictions on hair transplant surgery, after seeing an alarming rise in the number of teenage boys wanting to go under the knife.
Dr Bessam Farjo of Farjo Medical Centre says, “Hair loss can be quite unpredictable in its early stages, with the full extent of loss difficult to determine in men under the age of 30. Men under this age should consider taking preventative drugs such as propecia, in an effort to slow down or stop their hair loss. Surgery may improve the hairline of very young men in the short term. But if further hair loss occurs they could find themselves with inconsistent coverage, giving them a patchy look. Sadly, some clinics appear to be taking advantage of these vulnerable patients by agreeing to perform surgery and not advising them of the potential long-term results.”
Farjo Medical Centre operates a strict screening process and will not treat anyone who they feel is not suitable for surgery. The centre also offers a genetic test that indicates the extent of expected hair loss, be it a slightly receding hairline or complete hair loss.
Farjo Medical Centre is the UK’s and one of the world’s leading hair transplant clinics. The centre was established in 1992 by husband and wife team, Dr Bessam Farjo and Dr Nilofer Farjo. They consult with their patients at Farjo clinics in Manchester city centre and London’s Harley Street. The centre has earned an international reputation for using the latest hair transplantation techniques and placing significant emphasis on developing pioneering ways to counter hair loss.
They carry out hundreds of operations each year. More than 4000 people have travelled from across the UK, Europe and as far as the Middle East, Australia and the United States, to a Farjo Medical Centre.
