I spotted a HT guy from 50 meters away


#1

Its a new ‘sniper’ record for spotting a HT at such a great distance.

I spotted a guy with a HT today at Walmart from 50 meters away.

He was norwood 6 with a hair transplant up front. It looked ridiculous. If you are that bald, there is no point having a hair transplant. What you get is some hair up front and a big slick bald area all the way to the horse shoe.

The only thing it does is draw MORE attention to your baldness as something does not seem right to the human eye.

Ya I agree… and when you are in the field of hair transplant… for years if you will… you notice just about everything… wigs, transplants, plugs, make-up… etc.:frowning:

I think CIA is looking for you to join them, give them a call! Or at least you should swap handles with our fellow poster James Bond :smiley:

2 months and 3 weeks, there are good signs of re-growth. But again it’s too early!

Wonderful Freddy you should give yourself a medal for it you spotted it and then what happened. Its like you discovered the holy grail If the guy has the time and cash he will improve it so it could be seen from 5 meters or less

If you are claiming to spot his HT from 50 meters (roughly 150 feet) away solely based on him having a bald crown and plenty of hair up top then I call BS. This is a natural pattern of loss that I see all the time. If it was because the work was unnatural (pluggy, bad angles) then you have far better eyesight than I do and I’m 20/10. Either way, you should clarify why you think he had a HT. It is posts like this one that only serve to confuse others.

there was nothing natural about it.

a norwood 2 hairline perfectly formed with no recession up front with a slick bald head from there on backwards with only a thin horseshoe rim of hair around the head looks ridiculous. that’s why it stood out even at that great range.

HT looks good for 3 or 5 years and then as hair falls out, it begins to look silly. Then the person is on a transplant treadmill.

if i had a sniper rifle, i could have shot him in his baldspot at that range and put him out of his misery.

This should really be an Olympic sport as I don’t believe anyone is better than me at transplant spotting at long range.

I don’t understand why people would pay so much money when a hair transplant can only last 3-5 years, that’s desperation! Some of the before and after pix look really impressive but what 's the point if it can only buy me a few years time.

I have seen people come in to the clinic who had a Hair transplant in the 70’s and 80’s and all their hair transplanted hair is still growing.

I think you had it wrong, he wasn’t talking about losing the transplant in 3 to 5 years,the grafts can last decades, he was talking about losing more of his own hair a few years down the road. I had my hair transplant for over 3 years and the grafts are as good as ever, they don’t shed after 3 to 5 years.

Yes, if you have the front done and you lose more hair in the back it is something to consider. Planning for the future is smart in anything and getting a hairtransplant is no exception.

Will you be on meds to keep your existing hair?
Are you ready to invest in a 2nd procedure down the road if you need one in other areas?

Things to consider.
