I’ve been suffering from baldness for the last 5/6 years from the forehead to the middle of my scalp. Please suggest hair loss medication that works and I can get easily.

I would like scalp or body hair placed into both scars and would also like to have some hair into my temple triangles too if possible. My main aim after the procedure would be to be able to wear my hair short with a nice frame to my face, so if future loss occurs I can still crop my hair fairly short, without using concealer on my scar. I would love people’s advise, or anyone who has had a similar experience who has had follicular unit extraction (FUE) or body hair transplantation (BHT) into a scar and can now […]
In addition to wanting to know the final results of a state of the art hair transplant procedure will be natural, dense, and undetectable – some hair loss patients, especially those with a low tolerance for pain are concerned about the amount of pain they’ll experience during the actual procedure. Are hair transplants painful? How much pain is experienced during the surgical hair restoration procedure? How about over the next couple of days/weeks while the wounds are healing? To learn more about the pain one can experience during hair transplant surgery and while healing, visit “Pain Levels in Hair Transplant Surgery“.
