In brief: I

I agree, as long as you have an otherwise healthy scalp with good circulation and no growths or significant sun damage that would make the grafts not "take".
It is also important to have a good consultation to determine your options, to discuss your goals, and pricing.

In brief: Age

Age is generally not a limiting factor in the success of a hair transplant.
If you have healthy hair on the sides and/or back of your scalp, you're a good candidate for a hair transplant. I hope things go well!
