Hair Transplants




True Lies... Hair transplants don't look like those advertisements!

     Don't throw away that baseball cap just yet...

Hair transplant surgery has become the most popular cosmetic procedure for men. Everyone wants to look their best.  ...And certainly, no one wants to lose their hair.  But will hair transplant surgery give you the results you expect?  Highly unlikely.

I have received a number of emails that suggest that I did not do my homework prior to undergoing hair transplantation.  I have also heard from visitors that my hair transplant was done using "older" techniques and that the success rate has increased dramatically in the last few years.  This would seem logical, however, there is no evidence to support this theory.  I would encourage anyone still considering this procedure to visit other websites that will enlighten the readers to the truth about hair transplant surgery.

Here are a few links that I would encourage you to visit:

The before and after pictures make hair transplants look like a great solution for reversing your thinning hair.  This is not the reality for most men.

The pictures in the ads look so great.  A guy with hair loss worse than yours has regained his youthful appearance with one or two transplant sessions.  This is not only a farce, it is horribly false advertising.  We want to believe in a permanent solution so we give it serious consideration.  Eventually, many of us will have hair transplant surgery.  And almost all of us will be disappointed. 

My experience in talking with and meeting other hair transplant patients is that it is extremely rare to speak to a transplant patient that considers his result a success.  The vast majority of  patients experience poor to marginal coverage and continue to search for a solution to their hair loss.  

Hair transplant surgery does not stop the natural progression of hair loss, and even the most successful patient will need to undergo additional transplant procedures as more hair loss occurs over time.
