When star baseball pitcher Daniel Schmidt first started noticing his thinning hair at 18 he was determined to ensure KHGLGQ¶WZDVWHµWKHEHVW\HDUVRIKLVOLIH´IHHOLQJORZRQconfidence. He researched solutions, sought a medical consultation and took Proscar to slow down his hair loss. :KLOHWKHPHGLFDWLRQGLGQ¶WSURPRWHUHQHZHGJURZWKLWhelped to preserve precious existing hair follicles so that, if he eventually chose to, he could successfully have a hair transplant.

At the age of 21 and after several consultations with renowned Perth based hair restoration physician, Dr Jennifer Martinick, Daniel had a hair transplant. Now, at 25, after having two procedures, there are no signs of the former hair loss that once affected his confidence. Daniel, who spends six months of the year playing baseball in the United States, says he is fortunate that, unlike many young men, he received appropriate treatment from the outset. Although generally guarded about his privacy, Daniel is sharing his story to help other young men. ³<RXUHDUO\WRPLGWZHQWLHVDUHPHDQWWREHWKHEHVW\HDUVRI\RXUOLIHDQG,GLGQ¶Wwant to spend those years with poor confidence and self esteem´'DQLHOVD\V ³/RVLQJ\RXUKDLULQ\RXUODWHWHHQVDQGHDUO\Wwenties really does affect your confidence. ³,ZDVDELWZRUULHGDERXWWKHTXHVWLRQV,PD\JHWIURPRWKHUJX\VDIWHUVXUJHU\KRZHYHU,GHFLGHGQRWWROHWWKDWVWRSPH´ Daniel says young men¶VFRQFHUQVDERXWKDLUORVVDUHRIWHQWULYLDOLVHGDQGWKLVGeters them from seeking appropriate medical treatment.

She advises young men with male pattern baldness to seek treatment as early as possible to prevent further hair loss and, in the event that they may eventually choose to have a hair transplant, ensure they preserve precious donor follicles Dr Martinick says she receives a lot of requests from young men for hair transplants, but as a general rule VKHGRHVQ¶Wperform hair transplants on men under 26. However, she believes there are circumstances, where a more flexible approach is needed. She says her professional concerns are that young men can be unrealistic about what can be achieved from a hair transplant and expect to regain the hair line of an eighteen year old. In many cases, these young men do not comprehend that they only have a limited number of follicles for transplanting to achieve the results they desire. ³%XWLI,DPSUHVHQWHGZLWKDPDWXUH\HDU-old with a realistic perception of what hair transplanting can achieve - and his hair loss is interfering with his quality of life ± WKHQ,¶OOFRQVLGHUXQGHUWDNLQJDWUDQVSODQW´'U0DUWLQLFNVD\V ³,KDYHDPXFKPRUHRSHQPLQGDERXWWUDQVSODQWLQJ\RXQJPHQWKDQ,KDGDFRXSOHRI\HDUVDJRDV,XQGHUVWDQGWKH\DUHRQO\\RXQJRQFH´ Ends
