One of the main thing that holds me up from having a HT is , future thinning
I see guys on the board all the time who are in their 20s and 30s and who go get these fabulous transplants. there is no question that todays docs, especially the ones who frequent this board, Can do some great work. These guys go and get like 5, 6, 7, 8000 grafts, and damn it sure looks nice
But isnt 8000 grafts about tapping out most guys, with either FUE or Strip? So what if, you get this great transplant and ur 30, and use up only 7000 grafts even, and then when ur in your 40s , you tragically go to a NW7??..Then you are left with this island of finely transplanted hair, surrounded by bald scalp, severely receded sides and back which you have, no chance of having enough donor hairs to replace.
Since we all know that Body Hair is iffy at best, I do not think many guys are keeping this as their backup in their mind. Are you guys just rolling the dice and hoping you dont go that bald? or are you hoping for a baldness cure by that time, to come to your rescue?
I am curious.
If that situation were to occur, and you went that bald and body hair, HM or some cure had not suddenly appeared, You would be in a tragic situation, doomed to live life like a freak, and wish you would never have heard of hair transplants.
This post is not meant to be sarcastic, or to shoot down the level of skill of the docs here, they are all very talented.
