Whether or not to tell your friends and family about your hair transplant procedure is one of the most important post-operative decisions a patient will make. While many hair loss sufferers keep their hair restoration secret or on a “need to know” basis, they may be forced to create elaborate explanations for their pink scalps and sudden profusion of hair growth or fess up and admit that they’ve spent thousands of dollars to restore their formerly balding hair.
So, who do you confide in? Do you post it on Facebook for the world to see? People often divide the people in their lives into one of several categories; family, close friends, acquaintances or colleagues. In many cases, your hair transplant can remain hidden from at least one of these groups. Just as a great magician guards the secrets of his illusions to preserve their mystery, hair transplant patients often guard the secret of their newly restored head of hair.
Recently, forum member “Can’t decide” started a thread asking members to share their thoughts and experiences. To find out how other hair transplant patients have dealt with this important issue, follow the link, Why Not Be Open With Others about a Hair Transplant?
