Yes. Most doctors post the best possible results in the forum. You have to be realistic with your expectations. While doing your research, focus on doctors who have been publishing results consistently over an extended period of time. That’s one way to minimize the risk.
34 years old is normally a good age for hair transplant as your hair loss might have started to stabilize by now.
Are you on Propecia and minoxidil? These products may not necessarily regrow your hair, but they are excellent for slowing down the progression of hair loss and maintaining your hair count. You should be on some kind of regimen whether you are to proceed with a hair transplant or not.
Some may disagree with me, but for the first time, I would also suggest you try a small session rather than going for anything big. If you have the slightest doubt about getting a hair transplant, don’t do it. Going bald naturally can be an option that works for many people. There will always be new treatments down the road.
