Anyone done a Hair Transplant?

Post by PaulAtreides » Wed Oct 10, 2018 4:02 pm

Hello there,

I was wondering if anyone on this forum has done a hair transplant or knew someone who did and the experience/results that were observed.

I am 33 and severely balding, been considering a transplant for a while. I am always thankful for my health and family, and I realize there are more important things than hair. It does bring me down sometimes, and everyone around me notices how bald I have become. I am in an upper management role at my company and the lack of hair does lower my confidence levels.

I have the financial means to do the procedure, which typically costs $15-20K.

I don't know how well they work and expectations I should have.

Perhaps someone with experience in this realm can provide guidance.

Thank you!

Google Joe Buck hair transplant. It didn’t go well for him and he obviously has the means and motivation to do it. A couple years ago I heard an interview with Joe shortly after he released his autobiography. He goes into great detail about how the whole process went off the rails and he finally gave up.
My BIL had it done 10 or so years ago and it didn’t go well for him either. Now days it seems like a shaved head is in even with millennials.

Balding at such a young age is a sign of high levels of testosterone. I’m betting you also have high levels of arm and chest hair. Do not shy away from this, it is a sign of high virility! Please do not get plugs, no need to go through that. I’ve known several men who went bald early, never thought anything of it.

Had a boss who did it about ~8 years ago, was a constant project as he kept attempting improvements for awhile. It looked horrible, (and he went to a reputable place, with a pricey history). It just wasn’t meant to be. In the end, (and after a couple years of ribbing), he just shaved it all.

Personally, I’m 39 with a thinning on the rear/crown section of my head. I blame wearing a bbcap most of my life, lol. I figure I’ve got a few more years before I’ll have to either shave, or do a complete buzz. I’ll likely buzz, since I’m sure I have an ugly skull. Plus, I already keep it short and have for years, (kind of a modified high & tight, 1 guard on sides, short scissor trim on top).

Don’t let society tell you what you should do. Do what you think will work for you. This isn’t the 70s, the only bald guys that get ribbed nowadays are those that do the obvious combover. (No offense to anyone that still does that). :)

Buzz your whole head with a #1. I think that's the best look for early balding.

I have a friend that did it last week and videoed most of the procedure. Too soon to know how it works out but I'm all for what makes you feel good about yourself. They were quite pleased with past results form the chosen clinic.

I think you should research the heck out of it. I would love to have hair again. I suppose it matters depending on what industry you are in but I bet you would be better off long term putting it towards a budget MBA degree -- https://www.gradschoolhub.com/best/affo ... nline-mba/ or get a personal physical trainer and get all muscled up.

Go to Turkey for a week long "vacation", probably cost you like $3k. Enjoy your "vacation" 8-)

Look at some Youtube videos, they have amazing results.

I am considering a procedure, even though I'm not nearly bald.

I'm in my 40s. My forehead has been growing in acreage since my early 30s. I'm ready to show it who's boss.

We recently paid off our vacation home, we're about one year away from paying off our primary residence, and we're way ahead of the ambitious savings/retirement goals we set when we got married.

So my spouse is supportive. "Whatever you want, Baby..."

A friend of a friend had Neograft done about 10 years ago and it still looks great.

I'd give more thought to how a hair procedure will increase your confidence. I've been bald quite some time but for me confidence is based on my own self acceptance (body and mind).

After an initial attempt(s?) that were obviously wrong, Joe Biden seems to have gotten good results. In the meantime, instead of a combover, which never looks right, I have seen several guys with Brutus cuts that seem to work well.

I considered it but, after doing a lot of research, the cons really outweighed the pros. I ultimately either just shave or buzz my head depending on how I feel at the time. It's not just the procedure itself. it's also all the medication you need to take afterwards as well as the other meds you need to take to offset the side effects of the meds you take for your hair. In the end it wasn't worth it for me. YMMV.

Now that I shave/buzz I don't think it's that bad and kind of like it to an extent. My wife asked if I like it now that I look like a bad*ss. That isn't what I was going for and it hadn't even crossed my mind... but I'll admit I did like the comment 8-)

Good luck with whatever you decide.

I can spot a transplant almost as far away as a comb over. You wouldn't be fooling anyone. Just shave your head close or completely and leave people guessing.

There are alternatives you may want to look into.

I've had a few people tell me they've had success with Platelette Rich Plasma Therapy. Basically they take a small amount of your blood, run it through a centrifuge to increase the concentration of platelets, and then reinject it to your scalp to spur natural hair growth. Its a lot less expensive than transplant as well.

You might be able to, but most people are not Norwood spotters and cannot tell the difference between a good transplant and a natural hairline. By contrast probably 99% of guys who shave their head do it because they're balding - there is nothing to leave anybody guessing about.

This should go without saying, but you wouldn't be aware of the ones you did not spot.

I have always had very thin hair and receding hairline started in my early 20s. When I was in my mid-20s I started using a #1 razor all over the head with a fade on the side and back. It's also a popular look right now and you'll find that many men who have less hair do this. Combovers and horseshoes just accentuate the hair loss.

Are friends or family members teasing you about not having hair? If so I'd politely ask them to stop.

Used my $20 Wahl this morning. 4 minute haircut. #2 all over. #1 on sideburns. L/R tapered around each ear. Boom. $20+ saved. Every time.

Two notable public officials have done things like this - Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

Even at my advanced age, I have a lot of hair.

If you have a round, smooth head - some find the totally bald look appealing.

Don't do it. I almost had one done at the age of 26 (even paid the deposit but chickened out). Fast forward 10 years, and I'm now completely bald. If I went ahead with the procedure, I would have a giant visible strip scar on the back of my head today.

My older brother had two hair transplants done in his late 20s and even though he looked good for about 5 years afterwards, the hair is now thinning again. He has to use artificial spray-on hair every morning and it doesn't look natural, especially in the crown area. He avoids public pools and it is rather sad to see.

I shave my head and no longer care. Being bald becomes more acceptable with age.

Grow old gracefully. Body modifications are nearly always obvious and emphasize insecurity. Better to be mindfully healthy and maximize one's limited time on earth.

That is a good point. If you say, fill in the missing areas now and then go on to lose a lot of hair in the future that cannot be filled in, your head will look like a quilt.

This is what I do.

OP, if your balding affects your confidence so much theat your profesional growth is in jeopardy, I would confront that issue directly with a therapist or other trusted helper.

Sorry for some of the people who just say shave the hair all off. Some people look absolutely horrible with a shaved head (depends on head structure among other things) or just look a ton better with a full head of hair (or the like).

For me, my brother is basically bald and I'm luckily with most of my hair left (it is not as thick as I remember). A lot of it (but probably not the majority of it) has to do with diet. There was a study done in rural China (forgive me if I can only remember the very basics) where they took two groups of 100 men and fed one group a basic Chinese rural diet and one group a more western diet and 10 years later, the latter group showed more significant signs of balding. Not saying that it will work for everyone, but I think eating some foods will cause you to bald earlier.

Here is a list of the top 10 countries of bald men:

No experience, but 2 points:

1. Great avatar and user name.
2. IF it makes you happy do it. Only advice is don't go by there references. They (like anyone else) will only give you the success stories. Look through yelp and all online reviews. on line medical reviews are great for only 1 thing and that is to see the extremes (those really happy and those who are really upset). Either way will be useful.

Good luck.

Since I'm also interested in the OP's subject, I have to assume that he's as frustrated as I to see three dozen posts so far, most of which (although offered in a cheerful and supportive spirit) are completely irrelevant to what he requested: feedback from men who actually did a hair transplant. I hope such respondents may yet appear in this thread.

What percentage of males in the US get hair transplants? What percentage of males in the US visit Bogleheads? Now, intersect the 2 groups.

I would guess that Bogleheads with hair transplants will reply if/when they read this thread.

Always good to hear different perspectives. Many threads would be very short or have no replies. Which may be just fine.

Better a short thread with on-target responses to the original post asking I'd like to hear from guys who've had hair transplants than a long thread full of responses like My self-confidence doesn't depend on my hair, or You need to work on appreciating your body image, or Just shave your head and get used to it.

PM me.

6,000 grafts done in Beverly Hills from a reputable hair transplant doctor. Very expensive. Spent $40k+.

Results are good. Very satisfied. I can send you before/after pics.

People that see me now always compliment my hair and tell me it has gotten much better.

Why is anyone surprised by good natured but off topic responses? That is Bogleheads.

I was surprised we didn't get the obligatory "Not enough information" posts.

How about the obligatory "Please stay on-topic"? :wink:

Buzz your whole head with a #1. I think that's the best look for early balding.
100% agree. That's what I did after minoxidil & finasteride failed to help any. Now at 45 I trim it with no guard in place (so stubble, rather than 3mm).

Your natural hair line will keep receding as time goes by, meaning future transplants (and that assumes you have enough doner hair in back -- can't be a Dr. Phil chrome dome).

Jason Statham is one star stud who shows working out can make up for a lack of hair. If any hair loss treatment really worked there would be no Hollywood stars who are bald.
