I’ve not had a hair transplant and probably won’t until I’m about age 45. The later the better. I’m in my early 30s. The reason is I don’t know to what level of baldness my genetics is going to take me and how fast.
I suggest you don’t have a HT at such a young age. Certainly not before age 38 lets say. If your genes are such that you will progress to norwood 6 eventually, a HT would be a disaster. You’d have hairs on your head here and there looking like an army of insects had eaten through it. It will look downright silly as your hair falls out.
Then you will be on a HT treadmill paying thousands of dollars to have procedure after procedure just to fix the situation.
Whatever you do, please do NOT have a STRIP transplant at any time ever. That is the worst mistake you can ever make. Because with a strip transplant, you lose the option to shave your head - the last decent option to any balding guy. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve run guys with HT disasters just wishing they had never had a HT in the first place. All they want is to be able to shave their head and almost all of them to a man say that as they got older their hair mattered less and less to them and they would gladly have a perfect shaved head than an imperfect hair transplant.
For at least a bald head is an honest head but a HT head which everyone can see looks wierd is a lie they have to conceal.
So many HT patients have posted such that right beside a message on a new guy asking about a HT, I’d see a message on a guy with HT asking ‘how do i get these transplanted hairs removed’.
So be careful. There are tons of unscrupulous and lazy doctors looking to do a strip transplant on you and put you on a transplant treadmill.
Stay on propecia and rogaine as long as you can and don’t make a hasty decision.
