Hair is like money you always want more of it. “Hair greed” can be a killer.
Its important that hair loss sufferers realize that hair transplants (HT) can be a long term commitment. Most hair transplant patients will always want to refine their hair and wish it were thicker/fuller/denser. This is the nature of hair. Very few people will end up getting one hair transplant unless the hair loss sufferer only ever suffers minimal loss. Hair transplants are not a quick fix so long term planning is important, especially since “hair greed” will leave you wanting more.
The closer your hair gets to creating that illusion of density, the more hair you will want especially once you have received quality work from a quality hair transplant doctor like those from our coalition.
Personally, I felt that I needed to have more work done due to unsatisfactory results initially though even now I am left wanting more. Thanks to the use of this hair restoration discussion forums, finding a quality hair transplant doctor is easy, which in turn allows you to plan more effectively for the long term. Hair greed simply comes with the territory.
If i had a dollar for every time a hair transplant patient had said “I only intend to have the 1 session and then I’ll be done”, I would be rich ;). The vast majority of hair loss sufferers embark out with every intention to only have one in order to create a conservative change in their appearance. But more often than not, even though the patient is pleased with their results – they want more.
So does this mean a hair transplant patient is never truly satisfied? Because it’s virtually impossible to obtain a full head of hair with a hair transplant, hair greed will always leave a patient wanting more. But by selecting a quality hair restoration physician and planning for the long term, many hair transplant patients are very happy with their results.
