I’m very curious about the world of hair transplants. I’m in my late 40s and have been reading up on transplants. My story in a nutshell:
- Started losing my hair in my mid-late 20’s
- I have little to no hair on top but have plenty of hair on the sides and on the back of my head. I keep it cut short because if I let it grow out it gets poofy and I look like a mad scientist from a 40s monster movie.
- I don’t want to go “nuts” with hair on the top because it will be obvious I have a transplant. Having said that, it is my head and I would welcome some more on top.
I can’t say I’ve been bothered by my hair loss since it’s been that way almost half of my life. Yet lately I’ve been thinking about having the procedure. I am getting tired of feeling like the oldest guy in the room (looks wise) on job interviews.
I guess my general questions are…Has your life and self-esteem changed in the way you thought it would after your hair transplant? Any regrets? Any advice on the best procedure to ask a doctor about?
As I’m sure you can imagine, there is a lot to know about hair transplant surgery. Without photos, it will be difficult to give you any valuable feedback.
