Hair transplants are an option if you are over 25 years of age. Many men can look normal and never look like they lost their hair or have had a hair transplant.  If you are under 25, you should not get a hair transplant because hair loss is progressive and your balding pattern would not have declared what it is. By the time you reach 25, most people know, with a good doctor’s help, where their balding is going and then can have a hair transplant if the pattern of balding becomes stable with medications.  If you start a hair transplant process before you are 25, and then you continue to lose hair, you may find yourself chasing the hair loss with more and more hair transplants.  This makes it expensive and wasteful of your donor hair.  You need to build a MASTER PLAN with your doctor that outlines what you will do, depending upon the age, at what point in time.

We do know that on a few patient, these permanent hairs may not be permanent afterall. We don’t understand what you are reporting but I would suggest that you see your surgeon and ask him/her to look at the donor area microscopically and see if those hairs are miniaturizing. If the donor areas has miniaturized hairs, that could explain what you are seeing

 

From time to time, I read about something significant in the field of medicine. Many of our readers have parents and grandparents who confront dementia and Alzheimers so information like this becomes significant from a family perspective.

Traveling overseas can save you money on a hair transplant. I just surveyed many markets to find out what the cost per graft is by various countries from people who knew. Putting Turkey and India aside for a moment, the costs from reputable clinics including Thailand, Korea, much of South America, Mexico and Eastern Europe range from a low of $3 to a high of $5/graft. Two exceptions seem to be Turkey where pricing can be found as low as $0.50/graft and India where similar competitive pricing to Turkey seems available.

In Turkey, hair transplantation has country-wide offerings. There are about 510 clinics in Turkey, of which less than 40 are reported to have physicians. Clinics are required to have doctors, but most seem to avoid this requirement and the government is blind to them because they bring in over $1 Billion / year in revenue. The statistics on India are unfortunately not available, but I have spoken to patients who had hair transplant in India for between $1-1.50/graft.

The issue or recourse is an important issue. If something goes wrong in most of the inexpensive countries, you have no recourse to complain or sue the doctor or clinic. We don’t know how many patients died in Turkey because there is no reporting mechanism and to report it is bad for their local economy. We do hear about complications from Turkey reported by doctors in Europe who see these patients after they develop gangrene of their wounds, or balding in their donor area.

I know of two deaths in the US over the past 8 years and that is easy to find. Patients have recourse against the doctors in clinics in the US, so there is an effort to do everything right by doctors in the US because they are at risk if they don’t do it right. Good doctors don’t need to be threated to do it right.

I have been particularly interested in this subject and expect that I will learn more over time. I wonder if readers on this site would travel overseas to save significant amounts of money if the quality of the work was known to be good.

Overseas hair transplant options? from tressless

 

Reading the comments are about as interesting as the video. Most men don’t understand how a hair system works and this picture shows it well. Good hair systems are not inexpensive as over the years, the cost for such hair replacements can run over $15,000.  That is why so many people offer hair systems. The glue that attaches the hair system you see here pulls out hair, so many people who use then become more and more bald over time from traction of the glue that pulls out hair.

You need to go back and see your doctor, the one who prescribed these medications to you. Finasteride may interfere with a lower the androgen levels of the body possibly impacting body fat metabolism. If that is happening to you, it is rare.

Hair loss is a progressive process so if your hair loss progresses after a hair transplant, you might want to see if it needs more transplants to keep up with the new hair loss; however, the hair transplants themselves stays without medication or support of any kind as it is relatively maintenance free. Drugs like finasteride will protect you from the hair loss that may normally occur.

 

You are starting to see shock loss, which is a loss of the native hair and often follows a hair transplant. This is prevented by the use of finasteride. The small arrow points to the area which had hair before the hair transplant.

There are good solutions and thoughts of suicide suggests you should speak with your support network or seek professional help. Doctors can help you with the hair problems so that the man in the mirror will be acceptable to you. If you are in the Los Angeles area, come see me. The consultation is free.
